WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Economist Ben Stein believes the White House is playing the race card in an effort to get African-Americans to vote against Republicans.
Speaking to Fox News, Stein called President Barack Obama the most racist president in U.S. history.
“The president is the most racist president there has ever been in America,” Stein said. “He is purposely trying to use race to divide Americans.”
Stein claimed that Obama and other Democrats are trying to portray the GOP as anti-black.
“What the White House is trying to do is racialize all politics and they’re especially trying to tell the African-American voter that the GOP is against letting them have a chance at a good life in this economy, and that’s just a complete lie.”
Stein continued: “I watch with fascination – with incredible fascination – all the stories about how the Democratic politicians, especially Hillary [Clinton], are trying to whip up the African-American vote and say, ‘Oh, the Republicans have policies against black people in terms of the economy.’ But there are no such policies.”
Stein stated it was an “outrageous lie” for Democrats to infer to minorities that the economy is oppressing them.
“The idea that the Republicans are making life difficult for black people is just nonsense, just absolute nonsense,” Stein told Fox News.
