Crisis: totally the fault of “minorities and risky folks”

In I could make a flowchart for you too if it would help on September 22, 2008 at 10:21 pm

Neil Cavuto, Fox News, from one real, non-effete man to another, I salute you. Could not have said it better myself:

When you and many of your colleagues were pushing for more minority lending and more expanded lending to folks who heretofore couldn’t get mortgages, when you were pushing homeownership … Are you totally without culpability here? Are you totally blameless? Are you totally irresponsible of anything that happened? … I’m just saying, I don’t remember a clarion call that said, “Fannie and Freddie are a disaster. Loaning to minorities and risky folks is a disaster.”

Allowing minorities to have home mortgages is clearly why we are in the mess we are in now. The logic in this is so sound I would insult your intelligence even to try to begin to think about how I would go about explaining it. Fight the good fight, Neil. Don’t let those Democrats even think about playing the race card on this. Being a minority has nothing to be a race, we all know that–it has to do with being able to drink legally, OR ARE YOU STUPID?

But let me try anyway: Minorities are bad people. Who cause financial disasters. Everywhere even when they are not there. Because they are magic.

Case in point, Sarah Palin’s Kenyan witchdoctor-pastor dude guy. Hmm … isn’t there some other black dude from Kenya we’ve been hearing about?

And let me ask you this, is it a coincidence that OSAMA BIN LADEN IS A MINORITY?!?!?!

P.S. Now the liberals will also go on and on about how we’re blaming the victim (minorities) and not the perpetrator (wall street greed, republican-led deregulation, conservativism), consider this talking point:

losing your trillion-dollar-bonus-and-CEO-golden-parachute-funded yacht full of hookers

or some shitty-ass house?

TELL ME WITH A STRAIGHT FACE WHO THE REAL VICTIM IS.

TELL ME THAT THIS PICTURE OF DICK FULD DOESN’T RIP YOUR HEART OUT.

UPDATE: I don’t think I need to point out that it’s blatantly unamerican to put the size of this bailout in terms an average person can understand. You can’t tell people this is going to cost MORE THAN ALL OF THE IRAQ WAR PUT TOGETHER.
