Continued Racial Narrative

It's not a surprise that the most fringe elements of the conservative movement are lauding Michelle Bachman's latest stream racially charged invective.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has made her latest pronouncement on the evils of the Obama administration -- that they are "turning our country into a nation of slaves."

Bachmann appeared at a right-wing conference in Colorado this past weekend, the Colorado Independent reports, and in her speech Friday night she quoted from founding father John Jay: "We are determined to live free or not at all. And we are resolved that posterity shall never reproach us with having brought slaves into the world."

Bachmann then continued, in her own words: "We will talk a little bit about what has transpired in the last 18 months and would we count what has transpired into turning our country into a nation of slaves.

Conservatives certainly have a problem with not being able to get away from using the spectre of race when discussing Obama and his administration. It doesn't take a great deal of examination to realize why many within the conservative movement are rightly labeled as racists or race baiters.

But let's look at this from her standpoint for a second. What shackles have been placed on us by the Obama administration that are preventing us from being free? After all, Bachman's incessant prattling is a more radical echo of the claim that Americans, by and large, have lost many of their freedoms under Obama's presidency.

To that, I would ask this again - what freedoms have you lost Michelle?
