• MSNBC Teaches America How Conservatives Are More Racist Than Archie Bunker

    Is Archie Bunker racism alive and well today? MSNBC certainly thinks so.

    During an interview with 92 year-old producer Norman Lear, the hosts of The Cycle were downright giddy to hear him proclaim that today’s Tea Party conservatives are far more racist than the “All in the Family” TV icon ever was.

    I think Archie Bunker still resonates today because you still have people in America who think the way Archie did and talked the way Archie did. It’s not an issue that’s gone away,” said Salon.com editor Blake Zeff. “You look at immigration, the kind of debate we’re having right now in this country. What would Archie have thought of the Tea Party?” he asked.

    Archie would have denied the Tea Party, you know? He would have started a coffee party or something. But he was not a hater, and that was the secret of Archie Bunker,” Lear answered.

    There you have it: conservatives are even too extreme for Archie Bunker, according to these geniuses. I wonder what Bunker would think of Martin Bashir, Alec Baldwin, or Keith Olbermann. Oh, that’s right — they don’t work at MSNBC anymore.
