Bigot Is Also Liar

In 2011, Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert had some pretty racist things to say at a tea party rally, according to a video just posted to YouTube:

"I hear ya loud and clear, Barack Obama. You don’ represent the country that ah grew up with. And yer values is not gonna save us. Wer gonna try to take this country back fer the Lord. Wer gonna try to take this country back fer conservatism. And wer not gon' allow minorities to run roughshod over what you people believe in!"

The crowd cheered, because Arkansas. But what exactly was it that Rapert was so riled up about in the first place?

"I wonder sometahms, when they invahted all the Moslims to come into tha White House, and have 'em a lil' Ramadan supper, when our president could not take the time to go attend a National Prayer Breakfast. I wonder what he stands fer."

Not that it really matters, but President Obama did attend the National Prayer Breakfast in 2012:

In short, Obama attended the National Prayer Breakfast every year. And, not that it really matters, but President Bush held a Ramadan dinner in the White House in 2008:
