It's one of the biggest problem's people have with Far-Right pundits: their defense of racial ignorance no matter how stupid or hate-filled the fuckery:
Al Sharpton and his race racketeers went ape over New York Post staffer Sean Delonas’s anti-stimulus editorial cartoon involving that famous crazed chimp. They picketed the News Corp. building, organized boycotts, targeted advertisers, floated a challenge to Rupert Murdoch’s FCC license — and now the New York Post has apologized.Instead of, at worst, making a case that Delonas' cartoon was done in poor taste, Malkin goes out of her way to predictably deflect (Sharpton! Race-Baiter!), defend and make a complete ass out of herself by mocking any and all outrage (I mean why should any black person take issue with being compared to an ape? it's not like America doesn't have a history of that stuff).
Oops. Can I say “went ape” anymore? How about “going bananas?” Shall I refrain from asking the race demagogues to quit “monkeying around?” Do I erase “It’s a jungle out there” and “It’s a zoo” from my lexicon? How about “beastly?”Just a few yelps from Sharpton and the professional protesters who see RAAAAACISM in every inkblot prompted the spunky tab (for whom I write and proudly so) to apologize to “those who were offended by the image.”
But then this is the same woman who wrote a book defending Japanese internment, runs from her Filipino heritage and just the other day had no problem posing with a man carrying a sign equating Barack Obama with Adolf Hitler (tho' she's criticized past Bush=Hitler analogies made by the Left). But indeed, it's an issue with the fringe wings of both sides of the political aisle: at the end of the day they both look, sound and act alike.
