After eight years of white Americans in and out of government refusing to criticize the last one, no matter how heinous his actions were, for fear of being called “racist”?
THAT. NEVER. HAPPENED.
A) Calling any criticism of Obama as racist was NEVER a real thing. It was only ever something teh right complained the left would do, on the simple grounds that if they had a minority president (Condaleeza Rice, say), they would insist that every single criticism was racist to teh core, regardless of whether it actually was.
B) The only times that criticism of Obama has been called racist is when, such as Birthers, it was blatantly race-based.
C) Obama has been subject to an unprecedented level of criticism, not to mention hate, vitriol and demonizing from the right since before he even took office. Unlike most presidents, he never had a honeymoon period, it was hate, attacks and obstructionism since day 1.
