The New York Daily News reports:
Conservative firebrand Dennis Prager has taken a break from pushing hydroxychloroquine and calling lockdowns “the greatest mistake” in history to rail against the loss of racist language.
“How many names have Blacks gone through in my lifetime? What was wrong with Negro? What was wrong with colored? None of them, there’s no problem with any of them,” Prager said in a clip from his radio show.
This isn’t the first time Prager, 71, has bemoaned the backlash on racial slurs. “It is idiotic that you cannot say the N-word,” he said on his show in February.
Prager says he’s going to “start a movement” to call Native Americans “the Finest People” in order to ridicule supposedly politically correct terms like African-American.

As sure as the heat death of the universe, conservative radio hosts will always loop back around to “let me say it”
