The Internet is driving the mainstream media. For decades, there was a journalistic self censorship of anything that could gin up White consciousness. That self censorship is now failing, thanks to the overwhelming might of internet comments.
People in the newspaper business read the comments, and, being in the word business, no doubt often say, “Wow, those comments are much better quality writing than the lame crap of the original article!”
I used to do leafletting in the Boston area, and I would get ideas from people all over the country for the propaganda we made. It was crowdsourcing, way back in 2001!
We were doing a leafletting campaign against a church that had brought in Sudanese refugees, one of whom was reported to have burned a woman with a cigarette and forcibly finger raped her in broad daylight in Arlington, MA.
So we had one guy who wrote ad copy for a living, and he gave us this:
There’s nothing more dangerous than stupid people who mean well.
Fox News put that phrase in white text on a blue background while the anchorwoman read it aloud very carefuly and succinctly. Just think of the show prep meeting that went into that decision. They LOVED that line! They must have been laughing their asses off, and the boss said, “Put that in writing on the screen while anchorwoman reads it! That’s priceless!”
I suspect that media people are bored out of their heads, and they are afraid that they will lose their profit centers because they are boring. So, despite themselves, they are being influenced by the White Nationalist Commentariat.
And it helps when liberals at Daily Kos clutch the pearls about it! If they ignored it, it would have less power, but having the liberals go nuts makes it that much more entertaining! And of course Daily Kos wants eyes too. So the mass media and the Leftist blogosphere can’t help themselves. They are now propagating OUR MEMES. And who really gives a shit about Daily Kos’s condemnations? It’s amusing to read Daily Kos writer Reifkowitz’s hysterical yet morally exhausted call to arms:
Now let’s take that anger and channel it into something positive. Let’s work together and defeat these right-wing race-baiters, and send them to the dustbin of history where they belong.
Somehow I don’t think his hate is as pure as ours. He’s just phoning it in.
What’s really going in the dustbin of history, Mr. Reifkowitz? Political correct monopoly over public discourse, that’s what.
Racist, sexist New York Post front page goes full ‘Hey, where the white women at?’ on Obama
The wicked stereotypes evoked in this image are so obvious, so plain on the nose of one’s face, that everyone involved in its creation knew 100 percent exactly what they were doing.
Just as in Blazing Saddles, the Post’s front page calls forth one of the most disgusting racist tropes in our country’s history: the sexually aggressive black man pursuing a white woman. And it’s all the better that in this case she’s blonde.
And then, inside the fold, there’s the column from Andrea Peyser, a column that even Glenn Beck’s The Blaze characterized as “insane.”
Whatever Peyser thinks of President Obama’s interaction with Prime Minister Thorning-Schmidt, to say that her words were beyond the pale is a gross understatement. She said he acted like “a hormone-ravaged frat boy on a road trip to a strip bar.”
[T]he president flirted, giggled, whispered like a recalcitrant child and made a damn fool of himself.
[T]he president leaned into the air space of the cross-legged Danish cupcake.
The president’s cackling head moved inches from the Danish tart’s and yards away from his wife’s. Obama then proceeded to absorb body heat from the Dane, which he won’t be feeling at home for a long time.
Only after the damaging photo eruption did Obama get hold of himself and regain a dim memory of his marriage vows. He finally straightened his face and moved away from the gentle gams of the Danish object of his desire.
President Obama has some ’splaining to do.
I believe these words speak for themselves, as do the comments that appeared below Peyser’s column. The racism didn’t take long to come out, as these examples show:
The Kenyan’s mother owes the United States an apology for laying down & spreading her legs for the gorilla known as Barry’s daddy.
Let’t (sp!) choose, hot Prime Minister or Planet of the Ape leading Actress. Hmmm Tough Choice!
This is what we are dealing with, folks. A right-wing media that will stop at nothing to whip up hate and fear among its constituency. They will traffic in the worst sort of racist evil, an evil steeped in the blood of crimes that grew out of what President Obama rightfully called our country’s “original sin.”
You angry? Good. So am I. Now let’s take that anger and channel it into something positive. Let’s work together and defeat these right-wing race-baiters, and send them to the dustbin of history where they belong.
