Why be on Fox News of course. Who else would have the cojones to actually air anything like that?
Think Progress has video with link to a screen catch from a show on Fox News in which viewer-sent messages celebrating New Years crawled across the screen. One such message was this:
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND LET’S HOPE THE MAGIC NEGRO DOES A GOOD JOB. LOVE JEN AND JOHN C.
A considerable time ago in doing research and reading related to abortion, I remember reading somewhere that the abortion debate was the offshoot of racism as it became increasingly unacceptable to display public bigotry.
The recent dust up about the RNC shill, Mr. Saltsman, who sent out copies of a CD with an alleged parody of ‘Puff The Magic Dragon’ doubling as the track for an apparent new racist release, ‘Barack, The Magic Negro.’
There’s not much to say about a fucking idiot like this. It’s pretty obvious the intent. I’ve been around long enough to know this is an “end-round.” There are those, some with whom I work, who will not say ‘black’ or even ‘African-American’ because they consider it as part-‘n-parcel of political correctness gone awry. So rather than say “n*gger” or even “n*gga” – which is want they want to say – to be “nice” they’ll use ‘colored’ or ‘Negro’ and expect you to be understanding. This is what’s called a ‘thinly veiled attempt’ to gloss over whatever subtlety there is in racism, and as far as I’m concerned, especially when used by white men – and these specific white men.
Parody is Blazing Saddles, which does it for westerns. This fucking video – it isn’t parody. It’s a bunch of losers who cannot accept the fact that this election, and in no small part, Barack Obama, has energized people across the country and perhaps, just perhaps, the return of this country to her when it comes to ethics, justice, and freedom – a return to roots with a healthy dose of liberalism.
