Black And Southern? Must Be a Katrina Refugee

Posted by Jack Stephens on June 11, 2007

The Angry Indian blogs:

I’ve heard Rush Limbaugh say quite a few racist things in my time listening to him, but nothing quite as arrogant and blatant as his exchange with a black caller who very clearly adores him. After giving Rush a spirited greeting, Rush interrupts the called to mention that he’s a “student of language” and asks the caller if he’s “a Katrina Refugee.”


Because he’s black, and he has a southern accent.

Just in the past couple of weeks, we had the illustrative episodes of the Lou Dobbs hysteria over a non-existent leprosy epidemic, Bill O’Reilly’s angst over beseiged white, male Christianity, and Pat Buchanan’s reminiscences of Mexican serial killers. (There’s your liberal media, elevating certifiable lunatics as respectable commentators.)

Its owners run a scholarship fund for Israeli soldiers without family in Israel — in other words, Zionuts who travel to Israel just to fight for the Zionut vision of an exclusive ethno-religious state that suppresses and dispossesses the native Palestinians. Which is, in a word, racist.
