Well, it’s not the first time Harry Reid has shown what a racist weasel he really is — you can see my “Great” Moments in Democrat Racism video for more on that — and it definitely won’t be the last. Hopalong Harry was speaking to the Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce, where he delivered not one, but TWO jokes that illustrate his stereotypical views on ethnic groups.
“I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are,” Harry said of the Asian crowd. That was followed shortly by the real death knell in Harry’s comedy career: “One problem that I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight.”
Oh yeah, he really just said that. It was one step short of “two Wongs don’t make a white,” and it was pretty cringe-worthy.
Look, I’m not here to be The Joke Police. I’ll celebrate equal opportunity humor until the cows come home. It’s just that Harry Reid has made a living out of assailing Republicans — and specifically the Tea Party — as essentially a bunch of inbred racists from another century. So why should we give him a pass?
Well, the fossil that calls himself the Senate Majority Leader was forced to apologize today. “My comments were in extremely poor taste and I apologize,” Harry told The Hill. “Sometimes I say the wrong thing.”
I’ll let this brand new montage, courtesy of Roll Call, be the judge of “sometimes.” Here’s a look back at Senator Reid’s “Greatest Hits” so far in 2014:
