Why Does Reid Get a Pass on Racism?

This is an interesting point on Reid.
Check it out:

CALLER: I’m extremely offended by this Sterling story, because why wasn’t everybody up in arms when Harry Reid made his racist statement? I’m African-American. I’m extremely offended.

RUSH: Which racist statement? (crosstalk) Whoa, whoa! Hold it. Which racist statement of Harry Reid’s are you referring to?

CALLER: Well, he made a couple. I don’t remember the last one, but he made a statement about the way Obama speaks.

RUSH: Oh, saying he can employ “the Negro dialect” any time he wants.

CALLER: Absolutely right.

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: Why did Obama rush to his aid and keep him from losing his job?

RUSH: The cause!

CALLER: He’s still in office.

RUSH: The cause. The cause above all. Why did Peter Jennings and Tom Brokaw circle the wagons Dan Rather an awards dinner after he did a fake story on Bush and the National Guard? To protect the movement.

CALLER: Absolutely, and they’re hypocrites. They’re all hypocrites. Magic, Arsenio, all of ’em who made statements are hypocrites, because no one was up in arms about Harry Reid, and I’m still upset about that.

RUSH: Why is Magic a hypocrite?

CALLER: Well, I mean, he comes out… You know, he’s running for mayor or something at one point, so he’s in the political arena. So why didn’t he call for Harry Reid’s resignation?

RUSH: Well, you know, Bill, let me ask you. You’re in LA. What gets me about this, if I know how long this has been going on — and I don’t live in LA. If I am familiar enough with who Donald Sterling is, what he’s done, what he said, then certainly Magic Johnson has to know. Certainly all these people have to know that this is not anything knew that they learned on Saturday.
