What is wrong with Republicans!
What is wrong with a person who has such low self-respect that he/she has to make a personal slur at another person based on race and then stoop to claiming that it was intended as a joke! Give me a break. Children may try to weasle out of a screw up, but you’d expect the ‘big boys’ who think such disrespect is a joke to stand up like ‘big men’ and take the heat for their actions. Generally, it is the real jerks of the world that do such low class things and the same low class jerks that claim ‘joke’. Furthermore, what is wrong with the ‘good ole boys and girls’ that would think it a joke. The ‘composer’ must have known his audience would find it funny just as Rush Limbaugh knows his listeners will believe his crap.
A candidate for the Republican National Committee chairmanship said Friday the CD he sent committee members for Christmas — which included a song titled “Barack the Magic Negro” — was clearly intended as a joke.
“I think most people recognize political satire when they see it,” Tennessee Republican Chip Saltsman told CNN. “I think RNC members understand that.”
The song, set to the tune of “Puff the Magic Dragon,” was first played on conservative political commentator Rush Limbaugh’s radio show in 2007.
Where were his parents. Why didn’t they teach him to respect others? Where is the ‘patriotism’ the Republicans have been so fast to claim others didn’t have? I don’t expect any more out of Rush Limbaugh, but I was hoping he was the only Republican that low. Of course, I should have known better given their actions over the last eight years.
