Racist U.S. Congressman Steve King proclaimed over the weekend that Al Qaeda and other radical Muslim groups would celebrate if Obama is elected President.
Steve King is part of a cadre of White Supremacists who currently serve (or who have served) in the U.S. Congress. Remember the attack against Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison not long after the mid-term elections? Ellison became the target of Racist Virginia Congressman Virgil Goode.
King has since defended his remarks.

It looks like Obama has to fight racist attacks from 2 directions- from the Republican Party (as expected), and from the Democratic Party.
