Drudge’s most racist headline yet
Earlier today Michelle Malkin catalogued the spreading use of “hidden” racist language by conservatives. But Matt Drudge has surpassed them all. Here is the main headline tonight at the Drudge Report:
CHICAGOLAND: SHOOTING BLOCK
FROM OBAMA’S HOUSE; 2ND IN WEEK
The total impact of these racist code words is to make people associate Obama with blackness and associate blackness with uncontrolled violence.
If only America didn’t have the free-speech protections that have allowed racism to flourish here as in no other country. If only, like the rest of the civilized world, we had laws that made it a crime to disparage an ethnic or racial group. Then Matt Drudge would get what he deserves.
But wait—there’s a problem. The headline of the story that Drudge links is just as racist as Drudge’s own headline. And not only that, but it’s from CBS Local in Chicago:
All racist code. Or at least a racist dog whistle.
If even the mainstream media are trafficking in this disgusting anti-black bigotry, what hope is there for America? And how can blacks ever hope to succeed in this country? They are crippled from the start by stereotype anxiety.
