This here is what's known, in common parlance, as a Self-Fulfilling Prophecy.

From Crooks and Liars:

Tammy Bruce, last night on The O'Reilly Factor (talking about President Obama):

Bruce: But ultimately, it comes down to his inability to govern, and the fact that he seems to have, it seems to me, some malevolence toward this country, which is unabated.

Yeah. Anytime President Obama does or says ANYTHING, the conservatives mobilize their shock troops, who go absolutely bat-shit crazy. Insane people, egged on by conservative pundits such as the aforementioned O'Reilly and Bruce, freaking out, carrying guns to town hall meetings, certainly demonstrates President Obama's "inability to govern" and "malevolence toward this country", doesn't it?

What are these idiots looking at that allows them to come up with such harebrained conclusions that President Obama hates white people or has "malevolence" toward the country that just elected him President? That is just so insane... You know, it used to be that people trying to sell a lie would have to at least make it somewhat plausible. Now, they just pull anything they feel like out of their butts and spout it on national television.
