Stupid White Man of the Week: Rush Limbaugh
Rush presents an easy target (in more ways than one). Here, he identifies an 18 year old Yup'ik as a "child" and an "Inuit from Alaska" and mocks her for daring to testify before Congress about the disastrous effects of global warming on her community, which Rush dimisses with, "Well, we gotta stop global warming so the child's spiritual connection to her homeland and her communities and so forth doesn't melt away into the Arctic. But we've all had to move for a host of reasons." What a sweetheart, huh? Yes, clearly, moving from Cleveland to Cincinnati because your dad got a new job is EXACTLY the same as watching the village where your people have lived for centuries melt into the ocean.
