A lot has been said by those who believe the GOP has no choice but to nominate Mitt Romney for general election candidacy against incumbent President Barack Obama.
Those who have argued in favor of such a position are naive, and should fully consider many ramifications in attempting to brainwash the constituency before a single primary vote has been cast.
Realizing that some in Republican circles were trying to circumvent the voters in the process (not naming Ann Coulter specifically), I feel it's important to state some things publicly that such voices have failed to mention.
"A race war is coming if Romney is the nominee."
There: it has been said.
Now let me explain why. But before I do let me also state some things I know to be absolutely true.
I do not now, nor have I ever believed that Governor Romney, his beautiful family, or anyone associated with his campaign are racists, either overtly or covertly. My interaction with Governor Romney, the several times he's been on my show or with me in person, he has spoken in every sense about the good that needs to be done for all Americans, everywhere, regardless of their condition, birthright, or skin color.
But hear me on this point: Team Obama, headed by David Axelrod, has already plotted one of the most sinister whisper campaigns to ever touch an American election.
It will look something like the following.
If Governor Romney wins the nomination, Team Obama will set their plan into motion. It will begin with a series of private inquiries into Governor Romney’s religion. Team Obama will suggest to national broadcast networks (the mainstream media) that their investigative reporters do a series of backgrounders on the religious history of the family faith that shapes the first Mormon's nomination for President.
Out of the blue, CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, CNN, and MSNBC will do "in-depth" chronologies of the history of the Mormon Church. They will unearth "discoveries" that will garner print attention regarding the beliefs surrounding slaves of Joseph Smith. They will likely cite that he stood with pro-slavery movements in Missouri, before he was against them. They will also very much zone in on the inability for black people, or as the church literature puts it, "people of African descent" were prevented or at the minimum frustrated from becoming members of Mormon congregations for most of the church's early days.
