Just last month, Bob Beckel of Fox News’ “The Five” managed to offend a good portion of Texas by insinuating that elections in the state are routinely rigged by racist sheriffs. Today, he went off on “a bunch of crackers in the South” who are trying to use voter ID to disenfranchise blacks.
Not everybody in Texas and North Carolina is a cracker, though. There must be a lot, though, because Beckel sees them everywhere.
Moron Bob Beckel blowing head gasket on The Five….repeatedly says "Cracker"….RACISM????

No, it’s not racist. It’s a compliment, sort of.

If Bob Beckel spouts the word "cracker" so easily on air, I have no doubt he uses even worse words about others when he's not. #TheFive

Bob Beckel did not, despite several opportunities, take back his 'crackers' comment.

If you haven’t been offended by Beckel before, you haven’t been watching very long.
To everyone tweeting me about how shocked they are by Beckel & his anti-Southern "cracker" bigotry. He's done it b4 http://t.co/eHh60USIFA
