Just what we need. Another lefty sports writer with a chronic case of BDS – and a serious case of stupid. Yesterday, Filip Bondy of the NY Daily News wrote a race-obsessed piece about how expensive Saints tickets are and how most of the fans in the Superdome during the NFC championship game were white. To bolster his point, he notes that the crowd “heartily cheered” for Katrina villain, President Bush. The problem with this “aha!” moment is that it was President George H. W. Bush at the game, not his son.
If you needed further proof of this [New Orleans racial] divide, then it came during a pregame introduction of former President Bush. Once pilloried for his approach to the Katrina catastrophe in 2005, Bush was heartily cheered at the Superdome – which tells you all you need to know about the crowd’s demographics.
Bondy must have been too busy conducting his Superdome Census to notice the wrong President Bush was being cheered by all of the rich white people in the stands.
