Maybe you've heard of Andrew Breitbart. The former Drudge #2 and Huffington pal has been on an absolute tear recently, exposing anti-Tea Party demonstrators as "thugs" and insisting that this group of patriots is "on the receiving end (of threats and intimidation) every single day, but haven't made anything of it because they know that the press isn't going to be sympathetic to their cause."
Breitbart's real bugaboo is the false accusations of racism against the patriotic Americans in the tea party. In his March 25 column "2010: A Race Odyssey," he writes:
"As I have said over and over and over, the left has one trick that it will use again and again when its back is in the corner: shout â€˜racist' in a crowded country…. Are we going to allow the left to use its despicable acts of lies and intimidation to shut up legitimate dissent on a subject that has nothing to do with race?"
The crusader has even gone so far as to offer a $10,000 reward for proof that Capital Hill tea partiers used racial slurs prior to the health care vote.
Indeed. No racism anywhere near Breitbart and his crew.
Breitbart's wire services network, wittily named Breitbart, which also hubs his original content sites, recently ran an Associated Press story from New Jersey of a 15-year-old girl who prostituted herself and the 7-year-old stepsister she was responsible for watching:
"Trenton police Capt. Joseph Juniak said Wednesday that the older girl started by taking money to have sex with several men at the party of a high-rise apartment. The teen then gave some of the money she had collected to the younger girl to let the men start touching her, Juniak said. 'It went from touching to straight out assault and rape,' Juniak said. 'They threatened to kill her if she screamed or told anyone.'"
Remembering that nowhere in the report was the race of anyone involved mentioned, let's look at the edifying comments from Breitbart's (racist-free) readership:
Wow. That guy got +13 Breitbart patriot thumbs for his (her?) bit of genius political punditry. Wonder what some of the others had to say?
But hope! Here is a brave someone wading in to talk some non-racist sense into the not-at-all-racist discussion.
Ha ha ha! Stupid rape victim. Negative one Breitbart Patriot Thumb for you!
