Air America hosts: Farrakhan may have a point

Back on Monday, Minister Louie Farrakhan stated "I heard from a very reliable source who saw a 25 foot deep crater under the levee breach. It may have been blown up to destroy the black part of town and keep the white part dry."

Never mind how one sees a 25 foot deep crater under a massive flood (what, was he scuba diving?), and never mind that Farrakhan is a certifiable nut. But now, Air America hosts Chuck D. and Rachel Maddow not only refused to condemn the minister, but hung out there that Louie may have a point:

"You cannot blame people for coming up with conspiracy theories," Chuck D. said. "They look on television and see that the government is four days late in saving people [who are] supposed to be their citizens. I can't say [that Farrakhan is wrong] unless I know for sure what's the actual facts and what's actually false."

Maddow added:

"Conspiracy theories don't necessarily help but you have to understand where they come from," she said. "They come from people feeling like this disaster had a real racial component. I mean, it was a majority-black city that was absolutely abandoned by the country."

Rachel Maddow. Every seen her? It's almost cruel to say but she is literally the poster boy/girl for mixed-up libs. Smart girl but obviously born with a little too much testosterone.
