As we saw with Roger Simon’s effort to foil the rage of Ferguson’s citizens (you fools, the Great Society killed Michael Brown! […or: Soylent racism, it’s liberals!]), conservative ‘intellectuals’ will say almost anything to avoid discussions about race. For them, racism exists only in a historical context. Like rural illiteracy, the r-word had once – sigh, yes it’s true – been a big problem in our country. But then because we’re all Americans, we rooted heartily for the Green Bay Packers, built a big atomic bomb, and saw how Sammy Davis Jr. learned to live with his asshole wop buddies, so no more problem. You heard me knucklehead, shush.
Which makes it somewhat confusing, at least for me – pray for me, won’t you? – when the same ‘intellectuals’ can’t help but spend so much time tugging on the sturdy threads that tie the tragedy of Ferguson, Missouri, to THUG LIFE.
Preening celebrities showed their solidarity with Ferguson, Mo., at the MTV Video Music Awards show this week. Rapper Common led the convocation, preachifying about the positive impact of hip-hop music on society as a “powerful instrument of social change” and “truth.”
Cameras showed drug-addled gangsta rapper Snoop Dogg bowing his head and flashing a peace sign during a “moment of silence” for Ferguson. MTV President Stephen Friedman aired public service announcements plying social justice messages. “It’s a call to action to our audience that we have to confront our own bias head-on before we can truly create change,” Friedman pontificated.
You’ve been listening to Bloodstained Hypocrisy of Hollywood’s Violence Profiteers with Michelle Malkin. In it, she picks her jaw off the floor and she furies: You’re upset about white people shooting black men?
Spare me the shizzle and hypocri-dizzle.
But you guys love it when black people do it! Amirite?
The night before the VMAs, a gunman barged into the 1Oak nightclub in West Hollywood and shot rap mogul Suge Knight six times. He survived…
The Bloods-affiliated Knight’s reign of criminal terror has been well documented by law enforcement and rap aficionados. A climax: the still-unsolved shooting deaths of rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, which multiple insiders believe the record executive ordered.
Who loves the Negro violence? Who is it that encourages it? Liberals. And only a black person would be awful enough – and sneaky enough, frankly – to work both sides of a violent feud. Good luck sandblasting the smug look off of Michelle’s face.
Speaking of Ferguson-nasty, Ann Althouse is way too smart not to have seen the similarities. Or hadn’t you noticed? Michael Brown was a black. Michael Brown was a thug. Michael Brown was a person shot…six times. I mean, is that freaky or what?
The odds of two great heroes of progressivism being assassinated days apart are like, what? 2 to 1? And both shot six times? EERIE. It’s just like that old poster on John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln.
Ann then included that link for the tragically un-hip. For the country cousins in the crowd. Because when she asked “Who shot Suge Knight?” it was a question that had really been bugging her, because she something something Suge Knight, really. For days on end the mystery had been gnawing at her soul […and, Mystery? *huh?* please take that out of your mouth.]. Ann really wanted to know, because she really cared, dammit. She wasn’t just casting casual race aspersions on someone who’d been shot in the head and killed and was no longer around to defend himself from the Althouses of this shitty world.
Man these people are funny. And so with the times, you know? Bonus: What was that other liberal icon? You know the one in Florida, the hoodie brat? ‘Member him?
