    I saw this on Facebook. Love it.

    But Obama really won, Maddow said. “And he really was born in Hawaii, and he really is legitimately President of the United States, again, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics did not make up a fake unemployment rate last month, and the Congressional Research Service really can find no evidence that cutting taxes on rich people grows the economy, and the polls were not screwed to oversample Democrats, and Nate Silver was not making up fake projections about the election to make conservatives feel bad, Nate Silver was doing math, and climate change is real, and rape really does cause pregnancy sometimes, and evolution is a thing, and benghazi was an attack on us, it was not a scandal by us, and nobody is taking away anyone’s guns, and taxes have not gone up, and the deficit is dropping, actually, and saddam hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction, and the moon landing was real, and FEMA is not building concentration camps, and you UN election observers are not taking over Texas, and moderate reforms of the regulations on the insurance industry and the financial services industry in this country are not the same thing as communism.”

    I seriously question whether what is going with the financial services industry is "moderate" regulatory reform, but in general, she's spot on.

    Oh dear.

    Those tweets are VERY offensive.

    I feel sorry for people who think that racism is acceptable. It isn't.

    Lozx

    I saw this on FB too and loved it and was going to share. Rachel nailed it out of the ball park with her speech.

    For anyone to post tweets like that is not only racist and disgusting, but also REALLY stupid and short sited, which they will find out when they try to find their next job. And they can forget running for elected office.

    I was surprised to find out that a lot of these tweets came from young people.
