DESCRIBES HARRIS AS “THIS SEASON’S BRITISH SUBJECT”
by Sharon Rondeau, h/t Jeff Harrison
(Sep. 8, 2020) — Approximately 16 minutes in to the first hour of the Rush Limbaugh Show on Tuesday, guest host Mark Steyn opined that “everything now in America” is viewed through “a racial prism” as significant geopolitical issues such as the rise of China are overlooked.
The segment followed the first break in the first hour. Invoking the work of Victor Davis Hanson, Steyn said he differed from Hanson, who reportedly expressed his belief that “race would eventually become irrelevant” in the U.S. as societal morés changed.
As an example, he recalled meeting a young woman at Hillsdale College who he described as “striking” and “beautiful” who said she was of Slovenian and Filipino descent. “You only get that in America; that would not be possible without the United–. Where else would a Slovene meet someone from the Philippines?”
“Now that black lives matter, people define themselves as black in circumstances where they ought to actually be thinking of themselves, as Victor said, in post-racial terms,” Steyn said. “It’s always frightening to me at election season, because it’s become a tradition now in America for Joe Biden to run with a British subject. He ran with — last time ran with Barack Obama, who’s a Kenyan — who’s a son of a Kenyan subject of Her Majesty; born in colonial Kenya, a British subject; and now he’s running with the child of a Jamaican father and an Indian mother, Kamala Harris, and so that’s simply this season’s British subject. So it’s almost like the Revolution never happened. It’s like the early presidents, who also were children of British subjects, and African-Americans just get totally cut out of this thing.”
