The idea that people actually defend this kind of BS says a lot about where we are today in society…
During the opening of Fox Business’ Follow the Money on Friday, Eric Bolling teased a segment about the White House hosting the president of Gabon by saying, “Guess who’s coming to dinner? A dictator. Mr. Obama shares a laugh with one of Africa’s kleptocrats. It’s not first time he’s had a hoodlum in the hizzouse.”
The inclusion of Common may not make much sense to people who aren’t regular viewers of Fox News — it’s a reference to the right-wing media’s ginned-up smear of him as a “‘cop killer’ rapper” in the days before his recent performance at the White House.
Later in the show, Bolling teased the segment again: “Smile for the birdie. Our president’s sitting with one of Africa’s most wanted. It’s not the first time he’s had a hood in the big crib.”
In one of the more blatantly racist and offensive part of the program there was this little condescending slang exchange:
During the segment, Human Events editor Jason Mattera declared that “Barack Obama likes to defecate on American allies,” and Bolling had this exchange with Fox Business reporter Sandra Smith:
REP. JOHN GARAMENDI (D-CA): There are good guys. There are bad guys out there. We’ve got to stay engaged.
SMITH: We don’t have to have them at home, though.
BOLLING: Thank you, Smitty.
SMITH: We don’t have to have them in our White House and entertaining them.
BOLLING: Where? Where? Where? Go ahead, say it. Where?
SMITH: In the hizzy.
BOLLING: In the hizzy. Thank you, Smitty.
SMITH: Do we really have to have them in the White Hizzy?
Who do mtha fkers think they are fooling?! This guy Bolling swore he wasn’t a racist after claiming that our President was “chugging 40s”, and now the way he uses the word “hizzy” he might as well just call the POTUS his n***a!
In the words of the great American musician Kanye West: “Fawkin’ ridiculous…”
