Ego and Ambition: Privileges That Only White Men Are Allowed To Enjoy (Pajama Pissing Edition)

by matttbastard

Shorter Rick “best surname EVAR” Moran:

Uppity. N*gger.”

The real number one thing about Barack Obama that apparently creeps out Rick Moran?

Obama’s black.

For fuck’s sake, Rick–stop wasting our time (and the beer money Roger L. Simon and Charles Johnson occasionally toss in your direction), cut the crap and just say what you really fucking mean.

    When you get some proof I’m a racist, I will engage you on that level. Until then, my friend, you will be treated as the idiot child you insist on being where the best you can do is calling me names.


  2. Anybody running for U.S. president is going to come under intense scrutiny and criticism. White, black, male, female, Democrat, Republican, it makes no difference.

    Not all (and possibly very little) of this criticism will be fair. Tough – that’s the way it is.

    McCain is getting the same stuff. Indeed, some of it is unspeakably vicious (e.g., the contention that he betrayed his fellow soldiers while he was a POW).

    The idea that white males get a free pass in life is one of the grand fantasies of the far left.


  3. Interestingly, contrary to your devestating rubber/glue rebuttal, I never once called you any name (although I did make a thinly-veiled allusion re: ‘Moran’–mea culpa, I couldn’t resist).

    As for whether you are a racist (or, more accurately, that your comments were racist–that’s a key distinction, as you may or may not be aware, or wish to acknowledge) I don’t know nor care. Regardless, your descent into privileged defensiveness for being called out was all-but-inevitable. I am not interested in having any more discussion, so feel free to shrug off my glib contempt at your post as the ravings of an ‘idiot child’. Frankly, I’d be frightened if a hacktacular Hugh Hewitt wanna-be like yourself who, unfortunately, got stuck in the shallow end of the gene pool (how is Terry doing, anyway?) somehow saw me as an object of affection.

    And rabbit, much as I’m loathe to engage right-wing trolls, what I am concerned about is the tone of the criticisms, and what patterns/prejudices are revealed in the process. Regardless, until you have something more substantive to contribute than ‘teh far left sucks’, please do not post here any more.

    Thank you.


  4. [I understand and appreciate how strong the desire to have the last word can be. However, I have respectfully requested that you do not post here — not because I can’t handle your oh-so-truthy ‘political incorrectness’, but, rather, because you haven’t given any indication that your reflexive hostility towards ‘The Left’ can be addressed and debated in good faith. Therefore, with all due respect, any further comments from you will be deleted – mb]


  5. Actually, I think the Krauthammer character to whom Moran linked asks exactly what Moran wants to know: For the first few months of the campaign, the question about Obama was: Who is he? The question now is: Who does he think he is?


  6. Moran says of Richard Roundtree, “Now that brother was kewl. He oozed class.” So Moran appropriates the right, the privilege, to determine which “brothers” are kewl and which are not. And the chief reason give for coolness is “class”. Right. So ya gotta be a rich, right-kinda-celebrity with really white manners to meet Moron’s test of brotherhood. On the other hand, don’t be too uppity. I’m moving towards the violence end of the spectrum tonight.

    Kidding. Sorta.
