Liberal radio host Earl Ofari Hutchinson appeared on MSNBC Tuesday to lambast Republicans for alleged racial attacks on the president.

“The relentless racial assault on Obama has been the one unyielding constant from the moment that Obama declared his presidential candidacy in 2007,” Hutchinson recently wrote on his blog, Mediaite.com reported.

Mr. Hutchinson elaborated on his comments, saying that the RNC’s plan to rebrand the party and reach out to more minority voters “died a stillborn death” and no one heard another word about it. He then questioned the sincerity of the effort, saying the GOP “wants to stay the same.”

“The GOP is looking over their shoulder and they know this,” he told MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts. “They know the protesters at — were in Phoenix, they were in Orlando. All of that, and also the clown at the Missouri state fair, even though it seems outrageous and ridiculous and ludicrous, they understand one thing: that’s their base. That’s their rank and file.”

According to Mediaite.com, Mr. Hutchinson recently appeared on Al Sharpton’s radio program where he called Bill O’Reilly, Don Lemon and Sean Hannity “professional assassins of African-Americans.”
