MSNBC on Archie Bunker: Racist Character Still Resonates in Immigration Debate (NewsBusters)
According to a MSNBC host, the racist outbursts of the '70s character Archie Bunker can be felt in opposition to the President's amnesty plan. Ninety two year-old producer Norman Lear appeared on Monday's edition of The Cycle and journalist Blake Zeff sneered, "I think Archie Bunker still resonates today because you still have people in America who think the way Archie did."
Earlier, fellow co-host Abby Huntsman noted that people "saw Archie Bunker as a racist." Zeff added, "You look at immigration, the kind of debate we're having right now in this country. What would Archie have thought of the Tea Party?"
