I didn’t want to pull the race card, but when someone like shock-jock Howard Stern does so. I am sure he ticked off a lot of Republicans when he labeled those who opposed President Barack Obama’s back-to-school speech as racists. Stern stated that the only reason that the Obama school speech has set off a new wave of socialist finger-pointing stems from the fact that President Obama is half black, and that racism has distorted the objectivity of those who are against the Obama school speech.
Howard Stern is no stranger to claims of racism himself. For example he drew such accusations over his roasting of former New York City’s Mayor David Dinkens. To his credit, Howard Stern, who enjoys complete freedom of speech on satellite radio, the one word that Howard Stern still won’t permit to be said on air is “the N-word.”
I have long felt that had this president not been black, we would not be seeing so much opposition to many things he is trying to accomplish. It is as though he is being placed under a microscope and his every move he makes is being criticized, not matter how trivial. People like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh, Mike Savage, Lou Dobbs and so many others are fanning the flames of hatred in this country.
