Muslims are so uncivilized. They’re brown savages.
Geraldo Rivera, who seemingly has had a foot surgically implanted into his mouth, needs to shuts his piehole — forever. From Think Progress:
Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera described a “big big hunk of the Muslim world” as naive, “behind us in terms of political sophistication,” and “easily enraged,” during a segment on the unrest in the Middle East on Friday morning. “They have 100 years to evolve, to catch up to anything like the sophistication of the West. We have to appreciate that. In some ways, they are almost childlike, dare I say it.”
Dare I say it? Of course you dare say it, because you’re an asshole. As I wrote earlier this week:
Look — there are assholes everywhere: Muslim assholes; Christian assholes; Jewish assholes; European assholes; Black assholes; and Arab assholes who aren’t Muslim (just because, you know, not every person of Arab descent is Muslim). There are people who are assholes because they are stupid and people who are assholes because they are scared and people who are assholes because they just feel like it. Whatever the basis for the assholery, if we let the assholes of any group define the group — if we let the white supremacists, and Terry Joneses, and right-wing hatemongers define who we are as Americans — then we are nothing but a giant American asshole.
Geraldo Rivera is an asshole.
