I just saw the thread title as a chyron under a piece about the incident at McCain rally yesterday when a bunch of red-faced louts took turns urging McCain to up the sleaze attacks on Barack Obama.
One of them was this dickhead (youtube), who got a roar of approval from the hate-filled, violent lynch mob which is now becoming the standard Palin/McCain audience.
I guess that the dude in question is some kind of right wing radio host in Milwaukee.
Anyway, my reason for starting the thread is to marvel at and mock the fact that Fox somehow feels it’s relevant to point out that the guy is black. Why on earth do they feel that is significant? They remind me of my late, racist grandmother from Lousiana who would speak approvingly of the N_____s who knew their place, and seemed to think it made some kind of devastating point of she could find a black person who would criticize Jesse Jackson.
Obviously, Fox thinks we’re supposed to think it’s powerfully significant that black person would be a McCain supporter or bash Obama. What other conceivable reason is there to explicitly call attention to the dude’s skin color when nothing he said had anything to do with race? This kind of thing is revealing about Fox and the right wing in general, I think. No matter what they say, they’re race obsessed. It’s all they can see, even when it has nothing to do with anything.
