HOWIE CARR (HOST): That’s the worst thing about this administration. They’ve taken — it took 230 years to make this the greatest country, the greatest society in human history, and they are trying to unravel it and destroy it for — I don’t know why. I still don’t know why. What is — this country handed everything to Barack Obama. He didn’t have to work for anything. Just because of the color of his skin he was given everything. And he still hates the country.
Click here to listen to the audio. So let’s break it down, according to Carr:
- Hundreds of years of slavery
- 100 years of legalized, institutionalized discrimination
- BLACK PEOPLE GIVEN EVERYTHING
Makes total sense!
Despite this regular, overt racism, Carr remains employed by both WRKO radio and the Boston Herald. Clearly, selling hate to a small but hardcore group of Massachusetts alt-right white nationalists remains a profitable business.
But you have to wonder how long Massachusetts Republicans will sit around and let this guy be their loudest statewide voice outside Charlie Baker. And yes, just mentioning Howie Carr in the same breath as Charlie Baker should be offensive to sensible Republicans.
Every time Massachusetts Republicans lose elections, we hear how it’s the fault of those mean Democrats for rigging the elections. It couldn’t have been Republicans’ fault for refusing to repudiate hateful racists in a diverse, progressive state!
So, some unsolicited advice for Massachusetts Republicans – if you want to be a statewide party in the 21st century, calling for Howie Carr’s firing would be a good start.
