Bob Beckel has a pretty sweet gig. He gets paid probably a pretty damn good wage to go on Fox News, declare that he’s a “Democrat” and a “liberal,” and then to a pantomime routine where he says horrible things (really horrible) so that Fox’s audience can comfortably assume that all liberals and Democrats are horrible just like Bob. On Thursday it was Bob’s day to do his “liberals are the real racists” bit:
Fox News’ token liberal host Bob Beckel used a racial slur Thursday on “The Five” to refer to Chinese hackers.
“The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national security of the U.S.,” Beckel said. “They have been, they will be and they can wait, they’re very patient. You know what they just did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a bunch of Chinamen — uh, Chinese people — how to do computers. They go back to China and they hack into us, right?”
Beckel then made a vulgar arm gesture to drive his point home. Beckel’s co-hosts Greg Gutfeld and Eric Bolling were shown shaking their heads.
Of course they were. It’s all part of the show.
