Progressives are crying “racism” because Rush Limbaugh mocked Chinese president Hugh Jintao on his radio show.
Al Sharpton is on The Ed Show now crying about “racism on the air.” He is talking up his effort to get the FCC to censor Limbaugh’s “hate speech.”
Normally, I wouldn’t draw attention to this, but I thought it was an excellent example of how the charge of “racism” has lost much of its sting in recent years. It reinforces my belief that the prevailing taboos are weakening.
No one but progressives listen to their own little echo chamber in the mainstream media.
