Andrew Breitbart, the D-grade internet personality who gives sham journalism a bad name, is getting a lot of play with his report on an MSNBC commentary in which cultural critic Touré discussed language Romney is using to promote the “otherization” of Barack Obama.
1. Breitbart as usual, blurs the lines between the President and unaffiliated supporters. I don’t think we can blame him, since it’s hard to keep track. I’m sure they all look the same to him. Does he think that all blacks have secret meetings? Of course he does.
2. Beitbart seems legitimately angry that Touré is “watering down racism.” I think he wants to keep the rhetorical bloodlines pure.
3. Breitbart really doesn’t see how “food stamp president” could be construed as race-baiting. From now on, I will only refer to him as a cracker crumb journalist, because it’s evocative of how much he understand about words, politics, or other human beings.
4. Andrew “Cracker Crumb” Breitbart brings Yiddish into the article early, for no real reason. Is he trying to stir up long-standing resentments between the black and Jewish communities? Yes.
5. Yes, let’s keep pretending that Biden’s “chains” comment the other day was novel or racially-motivated language. It will fit nicely into the crazy old man gestalt, but it won’t effect his standing with the core of African-American Democrats who have always supported him. Gotta keep it on the issues, you know.
Once again, us dumb liberals rely on ignorance and fear to keep people in the dark. We should probably be whipped for our insolence.
I’m not driving any traffic to his s***show of a website, so no link. Don’t worry; there’s more on this topic to follow.Update: Two things have been called to my attention. First, Andrew Breitbart has been dead for over 5 months, but I appear to have missed the funeral. Therefore, allow me to correct myself; Andrew Breitbart sucked, but the website that bears his name currently sucks. Secondly, I will defend my “D” rating of breitbart.com. They mostly use completely sentences, and that has to be worth something.
