Keith Olbermann blasts Dr. Laura Schlessinger's 'blind, ignorant racism'
Keith Olbermann blasted Dr Laura Schlessinger as "Worst Person in the World" on his "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" show this weekend. But not for her using the N-word 11 times on her radio show last week.
No, he's going much deeper into the "blind, ignorant racism" she revealed when she discussed Obama's presidency.
"I really thought that once we had a black president, the attempt to demonize whites hating blacks would stop but it seems to have grown and I don't get it. Yes, I do. It's all about power," Laura whined.
"Translation: we elected one of you president, so stop complaining there's any racism left in this country," Olbermann says, adding that her comments are tantamount to, "Haven't we done enough for you people?"
"Any buffoon can get on the radio and shout the N-word 11 times; that doesn't make them racist," he continues. "The other part -- 'I really thought that once we had a black president this would stop' -- that makes them a racist."
Meanwhile, Associated Press reports that Democratic Rep. John Mizuno, a Hawaii state lawmaker, is upset over those 11 N-words and he's announced plans to introduce a symbolic resolution banning the N-word after he heard her show.
The resolution would be considered by the state Legislature in January.
