NY Times Says South is Full of Racist Ignoramuses, Again

The Times makes this guy sound dumb So this article in today’s New York Times posits that attacking Obama as a black separatist Arab Muslim terrorist non-U.S. citizen with a crazy Christian preacher hasn’t really resonated in national polls. Except in one place: The Deep South. The reporter, Adam Nossiter who has spent most of his career in the South, did some man-in-a-Wal-Mart-parking lot interviews and walked away with some awfully frightening stuff. To wit:
“He’s going to tear up the [White House] rose bushes and plant a watermelon patch,” said James Halsey, chuckling... Glenn Reynolds, 74, a retired textile worker in Martinsdale, Va., and a former supervisor at a Goodyear plant: “God taught the children of Israel not to intermarry. You should be proud of what you are, and not intermarry.” “He’s neither-nor,” said Ricky Thompson, a pipe fitter who works at a factory north of Mobile, Ala., while standing in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart store... “He’s other. It’s in the Bible. Come as one. Don’t create other breeds.”
I haven’t really encountered much of this kind of rhetoric, well, maybe once or twice, but I can’t help but feel that The Times is just running another, “the South is full of racist redneck” stories. I’m from Philly and believe me, there are PLENTY of idiots there who say far worse things than the comments above. A story about them—and their low-I.Q. brethren in certain East Coast cities—might open some eyes and do more than confirm the self-satisfied smugness of Northeastern liberals.
