Rick Santorum calls President Obama a Government Nigger.

(ThyBlackMan.com) There are few people on this earth that I love more than Abena Agyeman-Fisher, the editor at NewsOne.com.   A consummate professional and arguably the leading online journalist in the country, Abena is never someone I would accuse of being a liar.  But this morning, after rolling out of bed and sitting at my desk in my gym shorts, I really thought my colleague might have been hitting the crack pipe.

Dr. Boyce.  Rick Santorum has a video up in which he refers to President Obama as a n*gger,” she said to me.

What did you say?” I said, as my face twisted up like a newborn baby eating a piece of broccoli.  Even I couldn’t believe what my editor was telling me, and I thought she’d lost her mind.

Then, I saw the video.  Yes, he said it.  I’m sure the Rick Santorum campaign team is strategizing faster than Homeland Security after a terrorist attack to  find any BS excuse to convince us that we’re not actually hearing what we can clearly hear.  But the evidence shows that Rick Santorum is running head first into the word “n*gger” as he describes the first black president.

I’ve watched this video 14.5 times.  I’ve meditated on it, prayed over it, laid hands on it, and sent it to my mama.   I had to take a moment to thank God that Rick Santorum, in his conservative brilliance, has finally released videotaped evidence of the kind of smoking gun that many millions of us can use to prove that he is every bit as racist as we’ve always known him to be.

This is the same man who said that he would tell Black people to get off of food stamps, and he tends to perform well in states where the citizens don’t like Black people very much.  Rick Santorum serves as yet another reason that millions of conservative African Americans would rather endure their discomfort with Obamacare, gay rights, and abortion than to vote for Republicans who seem to think that we should all be in prisons or on plantations.

If the Republican Party would let go of its commitment to protecting the rich and oppressing minorities, they could get quite a bit of support from the African American church.

Rick Santorum was written off as a joke in the past, and has only risen again as a result of the resurgence of racism,” said Political Commentator Yvette Carnell.

I’m sure Rick Santorum will have a good explanation for why half of the word “n*gger” slipped out of his mouth as he stumbled over his words to catch himself after his glaring mistake.   After realizing his obvious slip up, Rick Santorum’s rhetoric was as sloppy as a drunken, uneducated rapper trying to explain Astrophysics to the United Nations.  He couldn’t even say the word “boo” without using four syllables, for I’m sure that even his warped little mind suddenly realized that his presidential campaign might be over.

Rick Santorum, my friend, you’ve been caught red-handed.   It was only through a random twist of chaotic, discriminatory, counter-productive fate and distorted political reality that someone like you could become a legitimate contender for President of the United States.  From every indication I’ve received,  you are no better than a white Herman Cain.  I look forward to watching your enemies eat you alive, for America has no room for leaders who feel compelled to refer to the President of the United States as a n*gger.

    Upon further reflection, perhaps the name calling is less hurtful coming from one whom is the same. Like a fat person calling another fat person “fat-ass”. Right?!?!?! …However, I just believe until everyone can share the same choices of vocabulary without being “labeled” there will be no equality or change in racial values among Americans. You very rarely, if ever, see a white person get agitated when a black person says the word “cracker”, in reference to Caucasians.

    ..and no I’m no fan of Santorum… just a man with a dream…

  2. IMEYOUWEUS says:

    So what??? If he just called him a nig-ugh, so what? Niggers call each other nigger constantly… No big deal less it’s a white man saying it…Typical double standard that needs to be done away with. If black people stopped calling each other niggers only then would they have something to bitch about. The problem is they hate white people, white men especially..for whatever reason. It was my understanding that white men were responsible for ending slavery, desegregation, welfare…..BY GOD, BLACK PEOPLE SHOULD LOVE WHITE MEN!!!….who else ever g_a_v_e them so much?

  3. Ken says:

    he is a gov’ment nig nog. who is arguing that?

  4. Mister Wig says:

    Rick Santorum is a worthless piece of shit and fuck him. He’s what I call a “WHITE NIGGER”.

  5. chris says:

    He clearly says “Government nig…uh”, not “governmentnik” as some are supposing. It is a voiced stop at the end of the word, a “G”. He says “Government nig…uh”, like “uh, oh shit what did i just say”. Which makes it sound like “government nigga”, incredible

  6. Reynardine says:

    A. I am white.
    B. My sister worked lifelong in textbook editing, while I was some years the English examiner in a well-known language school, and have worked in other fields requiring the extensive parsing of language.
    C. We separately listened to the speech in question
    D. We each conclude he said it.

  7. Tony says:

    Rick Santorum is a fu.. face. Big…uh it. He is a rac… too. Someone should pun… him in the motherf….. mou.. so that he can’t be a fu…. raci… anymo..

  8. Bobby Magee says:

    Sounds like “Government-Nik” like beat nik or peacenik. You black people just hear what you want to hear. Racism around every corner and under every rock. Everyone is out to get you. sheesh

  9. Zach H says:

    True or not – stop race baiting you media whore. Really, the grownups are on my side. Just resign.

  10. Russell Kirksey says:

    Beware of Wolves in sheep’s clothing….

  11. Russell Kirksey says:

    All the people defending Rick are just trying to rationalize the fact the voted or will vote for this racist….bigot …but what’s new … HE SAID IT …WAKE UP….they would also rationalize hate against Muslims too …. Maybe the need to re-read the new testament …not once does Jesus spew such hate and intolerance…..for shame ….gods work will be done when yall are judged…

  12. Ron says:

    It sounds to me as if he’s saying “Governmentnik.” It’s not the smartest choice of expressions, but that’s what I believe he’s actually saying.

  13. DaTruth says:

    He said it, he was pandering to the redneck and tea bagger voters.

  14. A. Bianchi says:

    OK! Is no one gonna say it.

    Obama is a House Nigger. in the 1850 sense of the term.
    His living accommodation are better than ours, He does the banker’s bidding with out second questioning. and not once has he looked beck and and given us a hand out. he is no different than bush. but we are giving him special treatment because he’s black. let’s take a second to remember what he has accomplished in his term in office.

    16 trillion dollars worth of unreported bailouts to the banks. no single banker went to jail.

    He signed the NDAA allowing the military to indefinitely detain citizens without trial, affectively ending the 4th 5th 6th 7th and 8th amendments. not that it would matter because none of you could name what any of those rights do for you.

    Peacefully bombed and invaded Egypt, Libya, Pakistan, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and we are waiting for Iran.

    Pulled 10000 out of iraq redeployed 33000 of them to Afghanistan.

    Sent 250000 military contractors in iraq and Afghanistan will maintain a presence in Iraq even after “ending” war

    Touted nuclear power, even after the disaster in Japan

    Opened up deepwater oil drilling, even after BP disaster. No single person went to jail.

    Defended body scans and pat-downs at airports

    Signed the Patriot Act extension into law

    Didn’t close down Gitmo and continued Bush’s rendition program

    The fact that any of you can believe that he has done any good for the country is criminal. If you re-elect him, you amount to nothing better than a “Good German”. and before you think that I’m making a case for the republicans, I’m not. The Bush administration had more people working for them that couldn’t travel to certain countries because they were considered war criminals there, and Obama, on Inauguration day, pardoned them for their past transgressions.

    Our leaders are forbidden to travel to certain other countries… Is this really what we want representing us? Is this what we deserve? Obama is no different than Bush, Romney is no different than Obama.

    Stop this crazy cycle,
    Learn your rights and stop participating.
    Stop paying your taxes.
    Secede.

  15. Will says:

    What possible noun or adjective would one say after “Governmental ” that you can clearly hear and see his lips pronouncing “NIG.” I guess its the same as “BLA people.”

  16. dana thompson says:

    Is this information and video going to hit the big media guns or are we just going to ignore this disgusting racist. This needs to be talked about on a large scale. Are we going to bring this awful word back into our vocabulary or are we going to out Santorum for what he is…a racist, sexist, ignorant joke of a man. Not a leader.

  17. Person says:

    a lot of words start with ni and nig. get over it and stop trying to make it a race thing

  18. Grub says:

    As a person with a Kenyan stepmother and a black half sister I find this completely disgusting. I am half way around the world and would not like to tell you what to do, but you need to get your house in order.

    Skin colour means nothing, people are good or bad on their own actions. How the hell can that guy be a presidential candidate?

  19. John Smith says:

    So many dumb, religious people here. Derek is the only one who makes sense. The clip actually looks somewhat doctored.

    I can’t imagine what a candidate has to gain from saying something like that. His hardcore supporters, mostly religiously motivated bigots, already love him. It’s not like they’re going to “extra-vote” for him. This isn’t going to get him new, on-the-fence sorts on his side, so why risk it? It’s just incredibly stupid if he really did mean to say nigger.

    And stop censoring nigger. It’s just embarrassing. Can’t we talk like grownups?

  20. Scott Bieser says:

    Santorum is worse than a bigot, he is certifiably insane. When his wife miscarried, he brought the corpse home and kept it there for a day so his other children could see it and pray over it. Fortunately, he’s not going to be nominated, much less elected.
    But his “nig” gaffe reminds me of a certain fictional certifiably-insane politician, Governor La Petomaine in _Blazing Saddles_. Ah Mel, if only you knew, if only you knew.

  21. Noah says:

    This is fucking retarded. He didn’t call the president a nigger. Who knows what he was going to say, but whatever it was he stumbled over it and said, “uh…” afterward. If he was going to call the president a nigger he would have said “nigger”, not “ni?uh…”

    I hate Santorum, but this kind of bullshit being handed off like it’s “news” really needs to stop. This is lying, pure and simple.

    Shoving race into something it wasn’t brought into. You should be ashamed! You belittle the real issue of ACTUAL racism when you pull crap like this.

  22. Lonnie Radcliffe says:

    Santorium is an unadulterated bigot as we as black folks have always known. His slipped slur captured on video is merely evidence of who this guy really is.

    He is no Christian or Catholic,for that matter. As a Roman Catholic myself, I can state without hesitation that Santorium is in opposition to Church doctrine on social justice, race and workers rights. He is an an embarrassment to the country and to the Catholic Church.

  23. Nicholas says:

    I don’t think Rick Santorum called The President a Nigger, in the film clip represented in this story. He was doing Gods work, like anyone would do when God speaks to them and asks them to do something. However, I would like to hear Rick’s explanation of what he was saying, in the name of God.

  24. DG says:

    That is ridiculous Derek. There is no such thing as ‘fully rational” because humans are not rational beings. When was the last time you saw Spock?

    In fact, if you consider something as simply as how we formulate stereotypes and heuristic maps you will see easily that the so called rational man is a complete myth.

    Secondly, the concept of faith is biologically interwoven into the fabric of who we are as humans. Whether you approach it from evolution or creation the reality is that believe in the metaphysical, which expresses itself in a wide variety of fashions, is part of our DNA.

    So if you are a skeptic what exactly are you a skeptic of?

  25. Derek says:

    While I agree santorum is a hateful bigot, you talk about god during your article saying “thank god.”

    I honestly think people like you frustrate me just as much as conservative bigots. Santorum is a bigot because of religion, nothing else. Not because he is innately a bad person or something, but because he was raised in an irrational, hateful society.

    People like you who trash on santorums beliefs whiles still not being rational (I.E. believing in god)come off as highly silly to me. What grounds do you have to say santorums beliefs are false. He is only doing what he thinks “god” tells him to. You need to start realized that half-rationality is not enough. We need full rationality. Until everyone in our society becomes a skeptic (i.e. not believing in god, aliens, bigfoot, political parties, etc.) we will always have jackasses like rick santorum in our society.

    That is all.
