Ben Stein's ludicrous assumption that Obama is the most racist president ever has inspired conspiracy huckster Alex Jones to take that one step further. He is promoting the age old racist trope that black men are coming for your white women, only this time he's saying President Obama is giving black youths the green light to kidnap your women.

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones asserted on Monday that President Barack Obama had inspired black men to commit violent acts throughout the country, and that they had given a “green light” to kidnap the girlfriend of one of his friends. During Sunday appearance on Fox News, economist Ben Stein had accused Obama of being “the most racist president there has ever been in America.”

“He is purposely trying to use race to divide Americans,” Stein told Fox News host Shannon Bream. “The idea that the Republicans are making life difficult for black people is just nonsense, just absolute nonsense.”

In the process of detailing why Stein had been right about the president, Jones recalled that he had recently eaten in an upscale restaurant in a “gentrified area,” where someone “tried to mug us.”“And it was a black guy doing it to us,” he noted. “And one of my crew members went out Saturday, and almost got mugged downtown. People pulled out knives. ‘We’re going to kill you whitey.’”

“They’ve so energized some black folks with hatred, they believe it’s okay to go out and attack whites,” Jones continued. “Just go out, you will deal with black Ku Klux Klan people basically.”

Instead of fearing the new Black Panthers, it's the black Ku Klus Klan that's the problem. Save yourself and your white women.

I'm not sure how the president is signaling these sex marauders to begin their assaults. Maybe with a simple hand gesture or a wink of his eye. Carrie Mathison is analyzing Youtube videos as we speak.
