Rush Limbaugh: In passing commentary about liberal reporters and their dehumanization or objectification of human subjects, Limbaugh said this:
We are putting the audio together even now. No, I know NBC did cover Nikki Haley, but they didn’t know that she’s a minority. They just thought she had a good tan. They didn’t know that she has Indian roots. So we got one by ‘em. We snuck one by ‘em. High cheekbones just like Elizabeth Warren, but they didn’t catch that. They just thought, you know, brunette, dark skin. This is the way they look at people.
Truth has always been, Rush doesn’t like Indians. Never has. Conservatives don’t like the race element, or anyone claiming it. But in his furious humor, Limbaugh thinks Nikki Haley is American Indian, when the woman is half Hindu. This is the disrespect and denigration that non-race venues create. This is why I refuse to refer to people from India as “Indian.” Their historical name is “Hindu.”
Binders: Women in binders? The way the liberal (libido-enhanced) Democrats handle the Romney reference, it is clear that, for them, “binders” is a subliminal reference to some kind of women’s underwear.
Guns in Oklahoma: Guns save lives again. A twelve-year-old girl in Bryan County shot a home invader. Didn’t kill him, but, easily might have. Guns save lives, homes, and countries. Guns keep’em down on the farm. At least guns keep’em safe. Bless them farm kids.
To the Dogs: A delivery postman died apparently as the result of a dog attack, in Stanton, Delaware. People who do not care for their dogs should be impounded themselves, like their dogs. Misbehaved dogs reflect the improprieties and character failings of their owners, in most cases. Check it out. Unruly dogs are owned by unruly people, or people who are negligent in other matters besides pet care. Mark the owners of unruly dogs.
“The gang’s all here,” at Al Smith’s annual dinner.”
Catholic Honor: On her radio show this morning, Laura Ingraham lamented the fact that Chris Matthews and Katie Curic were seated on the extensive dais with Cardinal Dolan, for the annual Al Smith charity dinner. “The Church seems to elevate the ones who defy her core beliefs,” she said. I would suggest a different interpretation. The Church turns the other cheek. The Church is trying to display a species of forgiveness in the most formal and public ways. No?
RedSkins: The same ol’ superficial issue still has a payoff for desperate media players. But now Indians are “Pig Skins.” That’s a great liberal improvement. The weekly Washington City Paper refuses to call the NFL team by their name, but instead insists that the “offense” of a tiny minority of white liberals and white liberal-trained Indians should be honored. Obviously the paper is completely ignorant of the fact. Indians don’t care. Most are not offended at all. So say Peter Harris and the Annenberg Foundation, by about 90%. Well, the team is actually mostly black anyway, and blacks are generally not offended by being considered anything other than black, so, why not let it be? There sure aren’t any Indians on the team to be offended.
Maybe Rush has a point after all, but, Indians will be Indians, regardless of American political discussion. Only whites can pretend they’re not a race, conservative or liberal.
