Dogwhistle or Primal Scream? Romney's Racist Birther Comment

I don't know what they're seeing in the polls, but saying this on top of the "welfare" lie makes it clear they're going full blown white privilege solidarity now:

"I love being home, where but the both of us were born," Romney said after introducing his wife, fellow Michigan native Ann. "No one asked to see my birth certificate. They know this is where we were born and raised."

I've said it before, but we're entering some territory now that we haven't seen since the bad old days. This isn't even dogwhistling. It's a primal scream.
