Re: Racism on the menu (At-Largely)

In reply to: at-Largely: Racism on the menu...

Dr. Don cannot be a racist because he's half black. (Really...... This was his answer to a charge of racism; his photo, as though that clears the matter up, and no further rebuttal is necessary.)

You have him pegged, Larisa. Donald is either ignorant as all get out, or willfully chooses not to see that which goes against his viewpoints. He is a partisan first and a human being second. And one only has to read through the archives of his blogs to see that he's growing more and more reactionary as time goes by. (Rumor has it he was once a liberal, which makes sense to anyone who's seen the vehemence of the convert; the former smoker who won't let anyone smoke on their property, the born-again Christian's desire to "save" the soul of everyone they know, ...)

First he'll claim there are no racists on the right. Then when confronted with the proof, he'll claim there's no racists on the "real" right. Every example is an aberration; that guy may be a racist, but he's not a real conservative; or he's a real conservative, but what he said isn't bigoted.

The game is played exactly the opposite when Donald is attacking someone (or everyone) on the left, of course. If one person makes a bigoted comment at a Daily Kos post, it "proves" that Markos Moulitsas and every liberal who ever read a post or commented there is a racist. Strangely, the same doesn't hold true if the bigoted comments appear on a site Donald Douglas approves of, like Althouse. (I commented on the whole thing here.)

It's a sad little world Dr. Douglas lives in.

Congratulations on getting his ire, because the more wrong he claims you are in AmPow land, the more correct you likely are out here in the real world. There's a link for you at American Nihilist, because I'm sure you must be one... (Everyone who disagrees with Professor Douglas is, after all.)

I hit the "post" button, and my comment disappeared... When I went back to the post, there is no comment... ...and when I tried to repost my comment, the "post" button is grayed out... Does Larisa moderate, or did something fuck up? I cannot say, but that's why this blog exists... I'll check her site in 24 hours to see what may/may not be posted there, then.
