The Sum Of All Derp

In an article on the idiocy of the right-wing complaining about Preisdent Obama's comments on the history of religious violence on Earth, Vox's Max Fisher sums up the bigotry of the last six years perfectly:

Many critics have described Obama's assertion that Christians are equivalent to Muslims as insulting to Christians. Whether this is because they believe that Christians are inherently superior or that Muslims are inherently inferior is irrelevant. It is not so different from, say, 1960s white supremacists who called Martin Luther King an anti-white racist for asserting that white and black people are fundamentally the same.

And that's it.  That's where the right has been, dancing in and out of blatant racism for the last six years.  It always comes back to race with America.
