Jonah Goldberg has an interesting, and mostly good, response to Jeong today. He points out that one can acknowledge that white anti-black racism can be worse than black anti-white racism because the whites in general have had more power to inflict harm using their racism -- but that racism in either case is bad and should be discouraged.
But, like most people dealing with that argument, he fails to notice that this is only true collectively (which is how leftists think, but not genuine conservatives). Suppose a poor white from Appalachia moves to a black city looking for work (as used to happen, and for all I know still does on rare occasion, in Detroit). Who has more power, the black leaders of the city or the poor workers (white or black)? For that matter, the mugger robbing you at gunpoint has more power -- including the power of life or death -- than you do right now regardless of which races are involved. The link is:
There was also another wimpy HotAir piece, this one by Allahpundit. He was discussing White House newsliar Ashley Parker, who agreed with Jim Acosta's paranoid delusion that he was under threat of attack at the Tampa rally where (after the booing) he was signing autographs and taking selfies with members of that dangerous mob. She quoted a 2016 posting in which she had expressed concern about the violence that might result from these raucous crowds and Trump's encouragement of them. Apparently neither she nor AP noticed that 2 years later there still has been no actual such violence.
They also forgot about all the leftist attacks on Trump supporters and other rightist targets (Breitbart apparently has a list of over 500, and it's growing at least every week). Have they forgotten the attacks on the Family Research Council and the GOP House baseball team? I would expect that from a newsliar, but a supposedly conservative blogger should know better.
