What’s up with the anti-Sikh bigotry, Time Magazine?

Will Rahn reports:

In a video interview published Thursday afternoon, Time magazine editor Belinda Luscombe asked South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley a bizarre and perhaps offensive question about how much she tips certain cab drivers in New York City.

“In New York City, which you’re visiting for a couple of days, a lot of our taxi drivers are Sikhs. If you get one, are you going to give him a slightly bigger tip?” Luscombe asked Haley.

Question for Ms. Luscombe: A lot of cab drivers are idiots. Do you give them a slightly bigger tip?

Maybe Luscombe thinks she’s auditioning for The Daily Show or something. Ha ha! Just imagine the firestorm if a reporter asked Obama whether he tips black people more because they’re black. But it’s okay to be a bigot toward Nikki Haley because she’s a Republican.

Ms. Luscombe is @youseless on Twitter. And, apparently, in general.

P.S. And speaking of liberal bigots…
