Do Espinosa’s racist comments represent the beliefs of the far-right?
Category : News
In what seems to be a daily occurrence – someone in Arizona has said something completely outrageous and offensive. No – it’s not Sheriff Joe or Gov. Brewer. This time it’s local political talk show host Barbara Espinosa, who does a radio show with the former head of the Arizona Republican Party. During a recent segment of her “Hair on Fire” show – Espinosa talked to a caller who was commenting about President Obama’s big ears. Not twice but four times Ms. Espinosa called the President of the United States a monkey. And – when outrage erupted over the racist remarks – Espinosa stood behind them. In one internet post – Espinosa placed a link to a Google Image Search of “Obama as a monkey cartoon,” while she wrote on her website that “YES! I Did Use the Word Monkey and Obama in the same sentence…” So – are these the sentiments of just one fringe Conservative in Arizona – or do they say something about the far-right across America? Joining Thom to discuss this is Joe Madison – human rights activist – and host of the Joe Madison Show on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio. With millions of Americans struggling to survive day to day – it’s time that we came together to rebuild our nation – and not let the cancer of racism tear us apart.
