In Lou Dobbs' World, No Irish Need Apply

From Huffington Post: Lou Dobbs Complains About 'Ethnic Holidays' Like St. Patrick's Day
Lou Dobbs has a lot of time to fill on his radio show, and no one much wants to talk about NAFTA Highways or the coming Invasion of the Mexican Lepers anymore, so this presents difficulties. Luckily, yesterday was Saint Patrick's Day -- or, as it is also known, "Amateur Night (Observed)" -- the one day a year where we celebrate Irish stuff. Anyway, Dobbs is against "ethnic holidays," but that's not all -- he is evidently powerfully confused by them.
"And by the way, I've got to wish to you, each and every one, Happy Saint Patrick's Day! I do that, and I have to be honest with you, despite my fervent anti-ethnic holiday position. That's right! I'm against St. Patrick's Day. I'm against St. Columbus Day. Saint Joseph's Day. I'm against all of those things.I mean, what is with all of these ethnic holidays? I mean how about an American Day? How about were all the same kind of day?"
Uh, Lou? I know you're really old, and really racist, and really, really xenophobic, but this isn't the late 19th Century. We don't do the whole "HUR HUR DEM WACKY IRISH" thing as a people anymore, since the Irish-American community is a vital part of our country, and, oh yeah, it's also INCREDIBLY FUCKING OFFENSIVE.

Personally, I'm not really surprised by this or anything, since it's Lou Dobbs, the guy who's spent his past couple years telling us that the Mexican Leper Rapist Gangs are waiting at our borders just waiting for us to build a six-mile-high fence so they can tunnel under it.

Oh, and Lou? We have a shitload of "non-ethnic" holidays. You know, unless you consider all those government-mandated holidays like Thanksgiving and Independence Day "ethnic".
