You're shocked, right? I know I am:

Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, best know as “Joe the Plumber,” for falsely suggesting during the 2008 presidential campaign to actually be a plumber, yesterday posted most of an opinion piece on his website (by another author) explaining why, “America Needs a White Republican President.”

Wurzelbacher, you may remember, ran as a Tea Party Republican for the House last year. He lost, to Marcy Kaptur.“Admit it,” the piece Wurzelbacher re-posted requests. “You want a white Republican president again.”

But Joe — and Kevin Jackson, the actual author of the piece — want you to know that “before you start feeling like you’re a racist, understand you are not.”

You see, before we had a black president, “to criticize the president meant that you didn’t like his policies.” Before we had a black president, nobody was “ever accused of being racist for disagreeing with white presidents.”

Many deranged Mexicans believe we should open the country up to them, some saying that much of America belongs to Mexico anyway. They are not called racists.

Liberal blacks have disagreed with most Republican presidents since Eisenhower, yet these blacks are not considered racists. In fact, when blacks had sanity and disagreed with the policies of racist white Democrat presidents, nobody accused black people of being racists.

Never has a black person been called racist, because they didn’t like one of the white presidents’ policies. Blacks were just exercising their First Amendment rights to speak freely.Take Reagan for example. Reagan ushered in a veritable Renaissance for blacks, as Fox News showcased.

Can you help us out?
