Only an idiot uses a racist dogwhistle on the radio. It becomes a bullhorn at that point.
So a guy calls into CNN's Dana Loesch on the radio, and he asks if black people want a race war. Does Dana Loesch act responsibly and say "No, that's crazy." Nope. Instead, she says Yes, and that some Progressives and the Black Panther Party do want a race war. Seriously.
Up is down.
Caller: I guess what I want to talk about, I do not wish, I don't want it to happen, but do you think with all the hatred in the media, and all the discontent coming out of Florida, about this event with this Trayvon Martin, do you think the media and the African American people want a race war? Am I out of line by saying that? Or do you think they, they really want that to happen, or that the want to see it happen?"
Loesch: Yeah. I think that . . ."
YEAH? You're answer is YEAH??????
Hey crazy lady, the questions was "do you think the media and the African American people want a race war?" and your answer was YEAH? HOLY SHIT! Way to pander to the worst paranoid fears, batman!
Loesch: "Yeah. I think that some progressives, prob, well, like the New Black Panther Party, sounds kinda like they do . . . Progressives need it as a tool, they need it as a distraction"
Yes, let's shift from that distraction over Trayvon Martin's death, I'm sure Trayvon's family sees this as a distraction, a p.r. tactic, when the real issue is the New Black Panther Party, which Fox News and Rush Limbaugh have been drumming up as a constant reminder that scary black people are scary. Yesterday Rush said that President Obama is a "Supporter of the New Black Panther Party"
in an attempt to appeal to racist older voters who are old enough to remember the first Black Panther Party.
Dana evens goes on to explain why. When given the opportunity to be an adult, instead of playing to her callers fears, Dana instead reinforces those fears, and its' a pathetic babbling tirade that follows, but the main point I'm trying to make is WTF?????????
More below the fold
