I really hate to have to point stuff like this out; but when it is pretty flipping’ glaring, it is hard to ignore it. As I rule, I don’t like pulling the “this is racist” card, unless I absolutely HAVE to and only where I feel it is absolutely warranted; and here, it is, in a big way. The big kicker, this guy is Jewish. Which really blows my mind.
It seems that one of the biggest neocon bloggers on the planet is channeling his inner George Wallace. Donald Douglas, who is Jewish, I assume — links to a story on The Smoking Gun about an 8-year-old boy who crashed a car, after his drunk daddy allowed him to drive his car. Funny how someone, whose people were horrible oppressed and brutally murdered under a tyrant, can sit and spout ugly racial stereotypes like that — funny that indeed.
Here is how Donald Douglas covered said story: (I am screen-capping it and posting it here, if he tries to pull it…)
This neocon nitwit can post a blatantly racist thing like that, but when I happen to post on my blog, that I am not a huge fan of blacks and latinos, after my cousin was brutally murdered by two black and one latino Detroit police officer in 1994 — I become the pariah of the blogosphere. For those that wonder; referring to a black man, as a “boy” is a racial stereotype that goes way back to the days of slavery, when blacks were thought to be of inferior intellect or that of a small child. Now, where I grew up in Detroit, on the southwest side and over on the east side; calling a black man a boy, would get your throat cut!
Between this and the fact that this neo-nazi here is the darling of the conservative blogosphere; is why I separate myself from the neoconservative right and what I like to call, “The Blogger Kool Kids Klub” (If you know what I mean…) Jerry over at Goldfish and Clowns had it right, when he decided that trying to fit in with that crowd was just not worth it. As was Red Philips about Douglas as well.
If that is what the Republicans have become. I’ll just stand outside the Blogger Kool Kids Klub and do my thing here.
