We’d Burn Our Guitarzan Record, But First We’d Have to Find It
What? Ray Stevens is still around? And he’s got a new anti-Obamacare song that O’Reilly likes?
O’REILLY: So 48 years ago — 48 years ago in this country we could make fun of Arabs… We could make fun of people in a general way, and certainly, Ahab the Arab was a general parody. But now, we can’t. What has changed in America?
STEVENS: I think we’ve gone overboard with the political correctness, just like so many other people think the same way about that. And I don’t know. We’ve got to come out of that, I think.
Oh, Ray. Yes, we’ve gone overboard with political correctness, but even that was twenty years ago, you old fart. And you don’t need to defend Ahab — just say the times were different, and leave it at that.
Because two old white farts complaining about “political correctness” sorta makes the point, y’know? Lookathat, lookathat.
