Racism.... unbelievable.

I turned to Rush Limbaugh today to get some inkling about how the RWNJs are responding to the "send them back" thing.
After interminable ads for sketchy products and services, one of the "comedy" ads that Rush has came on....
All paraphrased, since I wasn't recording.

Voiceover advertising a fictional school... then
(in a sterotypical Middle Eastern voice/accent) "I am so glad to be in America and learning new things. I am learning to fly, and learning wiring diagrams and so many things. I am also learning to hate America more than I ever did before from my teacher, Mr. Shabaz."
(Mr Shabaz, in a stereotypical black American voice/accent) "Kill all the crackers."
... and more in that same vein.

I couldn't listen any more. Less than 30 seconds was all I could take.

JFC! What is WRONG with those people? Rhetorical question, I know.

Little help here... Rawstory...

For some reason, Raw Story won't open for me. Just a blank white page. Was working yesterday, and my wife gets it just fine.
Anybody know what's up..
