WDT: Times Says Racists Populate Its Comment Sections

     The Times editorial scribe is from Chicago and very sensitive to racism. So am I. I abhor it.
      However in this op/ed, Jerry excoriates a couple of commenters to stories black culture. You know, the "why don't they go back to where they came from" stuff.
       Comments are a chance to hear from people, and overtly racist references are usually excised from here as are many egregiously personal inferences. However, sanitizing things too much is counterproductive too. Fair comments about public figures is allowed.
      Those of us who cull comments often shake our heads at one some emboldened souls have to say, but allowing hate to appear , even if its the words of others, makes you culpable in some eyes, Jerry.  So be careful.

According to some, all Republicans are racist. So the WDT is probably right. Those terrible people.

Were you able to read the entire screed? I couldn't force myself to suffer through the entire thing.

Did you know that two out of three blacks disagree with the "#black lives matter more than white lives mater" theme? Yet 100% of newspaper editors agree with it. And you will never have an editor take them to task, but instead they will stick up for that terrorist group.

These same sanctimoniousness editors, publicly criticize a "racist" by copying them and suggesting the "racist" should go back to whence they came. And they refer to them as Whitey. But they are safe because it is impossible (by definition) to be racist toward a white person. That's just common sense journalism 101 knowledge.

But even more hypocritical than that, is that many of these same self righteous editors. who see racism in every insult and political disagreement, will make the most vile comments on blogs, under the name "anonymous".

The term "Racist Republicans" doesn't mean all Republicans are racists. Some Republicans are very nice people. I have many as friends. But it's not a time to be politically correct with the threat of racism. (Anyone notice the Trump style in my statement. What a buffoon!) P.S. - I don't think racism is confined to any one political party although a certain core of the Republican Party possesses a clear tendency to exclude others not like themselves.

NY21inMD is trying to make it so people can not discuss issues by saying certain core possesses a clear tendency to exclude others. Get a life. All people tend to exclude those not like themselves. What about the liberal elite on campus that seek to exclude those that look like them, think like them and believe every time that someone utters a statement they disagree with should not be allowed to speak on campus. Vocal liberals tend to be very good at demonizing those that do not agree with them and picking words to describe the disagreement. The abortion debate would be different if it was labeled pro life or pro death. The insurance debate would be different if it was self pay versus free loaders insurance. Instead of wealthy paying taxes if it was hard working individuals paying taxes.

The point is most people in favor of something or opposed to something do not hate, they have valid reasons to take their position but people tend to demonize the position so any fruitful communication on the issue is impossible.

Who is white, black, brown yellow or whatever seems to be important to the world community. The blind have an advantage as they can't judge you by your color!

Thanks for your usual spin, NY21fergov, but yours is yet another example of political dishonesty. What was said here in NNY, and obviously implied down your way, is that "all Republicans are racist". That comment pretty much speaks for itself. Your attempt at parsing words is just another example. "A certain core" mr government employee? You are making yourself a bit too obvious. But I understand. If it weren't for blacks, your party would blow away like farmer fertilizer. Despite the almost complete collapse of inner city black America, you guys feed them the same garbage, and they seem to like it. I wouldn't change a thing either if I were you. But with the issues blacks face, and your dishonesty regarding racial issues, who is the real racist here?

Nice to see you got your obligatory puke in about Trump. Part of the scripted speech we expect from you. Hillary is not a buffoon, she's a criminal.

when you can't actually write worth shit, you apparently just copy other people's editorials, add some half assed commentary about their commentary, then collect your pay. What a putz. Worst op-Ed ever written in the Times.

I think you mean the unmentionable mentally unbalanced G - - - Y types. So what…. Are the civilized among us supposed to acquiesce for the sake of the ignorant? Who cares what they think? Oh yeah, the guy with the dog whistle.

Happy holidays!

wow 2:38!! i have to admit the video of that racist red neck scumbag made my jaw drop. Based on how completely open and casual he was saying all that I have a feeling his network of friends and family are probably pretty cool with racism. his mindset was not created in a vacuum. what the hell is the matter with these people?
if I had to bet I would say he is a Trump supporter.
thanks for posting!!

"Karenga served several years in prison in the 1970s for torturing two women, Gail Davis and Deborah Jones. He eventually became chair of the Africana Studies Department at California State University at Long Beach."

From prison to 'chair' at CSU Long Beach. Need I say more?

6:41, "racist red neck scumbag?" Oh c'mon. You can do better than that. You're a brilliant golfer.

Jesus DeJesus says,

What hypocritical right-wingers want is a life without consequence, which is the hallmark of an immature mindset. They want to do what they want, say want they want, but when it rightfully blows up in their ugly faces then it's all the "libruls" doing. But even more hypocritical than that, is that many of these same self righteous blog bigots, who ignore and condone this sort of abhorrent behavior when confronted, will make the most vile comments on blogs, under the name "anonymous".

2:27 He thinks blacks aren't smart enough to get ID so they can vote, so I wouldn't be too sure he can come up with anything more clever than "racist red neck scumbag". He could always call them "whitey" like our sanctimonious hypocritical editor did.

"All Replicans are Racist". That pretty well covers it for those who love their party.

Yes of course 6:23PM…. he’s misunderstood. He was set up. It’s a left wing race baiting conspiracy. Al Sharpton did it. The WDT’s editor did it. Obama’s a Kenyan. He’s as cute as a button. Feel better know?

BTW, how are you related to him?

Jesus of Jesus, glad you are here on our blog. Most of the time our libs deny you exist.


"Life without consequence?" That is the foundation of the Democrat party. No job, we will give you money. Didn't purchase health care? We will make others buy if for you. If you neglected to value an education, government will change test scores to make you competitive. Live in duh city and shoot at each other, we will blame guns, certainly not you. Have a bunch of babies that you can't support, we will raise your monthly free money check. I'd suggest you rethink this entire spin of yours. Unless one is really stupid, you sound ridiculous. You are the party of victimhood. Don't even talk about being responsible for your actions.
