Speaking of right-wing whackos, here’s a couple more. Glenn Beck said this about the Reverend Joseph Lowery’s benediction at President Obama’s inauguration on Tuesday;
“America is with you today, Mr. President. And you’re right, we are all tired of the partisan bickering, the racial divides, the greed and the corruption. There are many people in this country who didn’t vote for you, myself included, that actually want you to succeed. My family has been down on our knees for the last month praying for you and your family and your safety. You may be fascinated to learn that many of us don’t hate minorities. That we don’t want to starve the poor. And we’re perfectly fine with brown sticking around.”
Tired of the racial divides? Don’t hate minorities? No problem with Latinos? Mr. Beck’s memory is a short one.
“Every undocumented worker is an illegal immigrant, a criminal and a drain on our dwindling resources.”
“I’ve got a quick message for illegal aliens if you happen to be watching. You better start packing your bags. And to the politicians in Washington who are soft on illegal immigration, start packing up your office, because when the terrorists strike, which they will, and we find out that they’re here illegally from some other country, we will be telling all of you to get the hell out.”
“Somebody comes across the border in the middle of the night, why are they doing that? Really, three reasons: One, they’re terrorists; two, they’re escaping the law; or three, they’re hungry. They can’t make a living in their own dirtbag country.”
But not to be outdone, the Grand Poobah of the Organization of Big Mouth Blowhards, Rush Limbaugh spewed this about his hopes and dreams for the Obama administration:
Somebody say something about the Republican Party reaching out to minorities? Pistol-packin’ mama?
