Goldberg also carefully ignores the fact that the left has been successfuly forcing the politically incorrect out of jobs for a long time (there was a bad case here in Louisville about 20 years ago, but I don't recall the details after all that time). Larry Elder lost his job, albeit briefly, to a leftist smear campaign about 15 years ago, and Dr. Laura Schlessinger was at least targeted. Rush Limbaugh lost his brief job commenting on the NFL for ESPN shortly afterward, and many others (such as Curt Schilling) similarly lost jobs there over politically incorrect comments. The 2008 California referendum against state recognition of homosexual marriage led to many firings, culminating in Jonathan Eich being kicked out of the company he founded for making a modest contribution to the campaign.

No doubt Goldberg objected to those, but they kept happening (and even becoming more frequent) despite that. So people began to fight back by trying to apply the same methods to leftists equally guilty of controversial behavior (most of whom probably supported those campaigns). So now Goldberg spouts out moral equivalence without at least mentioning which side started it and still does most of it.

More love from Miss Jeong.

Feminine racism would appear to be a deep-seated characteristic of the left. This idiot sounds like one of Rush's "Fema-Nazis."

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. The link is:

The idea that only whites can be racist is simply another lie spouted by the left. The Chinese can be some of the biggest racists in the world. Does that mean that Chinese racism against Kwai Lows in China is not racism?

I remember walking down the street in Singapore many years ago with my father when he turned to me and half-jokingly said, "I feel like a minority." I turned to him and replied, "You don't feel like a minority, you are a minority!"

This is a point the actual racists don't consider, of course. Their history started yesterday, and their world consists of those parts of America they're familiar with. For that matter, they assume everyone is just like them and their friends -- which can be very bad when trying to understand other cultures (something that multiculturalism makes essential).

Generally speaking, I hold the so-called multiculturalists in great contempt. Perhaps this is because I have actually lived 7 in foreign countries and am a true multi-culturalist. But as someone who finds cultural differences fascinating I don't want all cultures to ooze into some sort of progressive non-culture which the left dreams of. And this is the truth of their intentions. They don't care about multiple different cultures. They hate Western culture and want to destroy it and remake all cultures into an amorphous homogeneous blob.

Having a Thai meal is about the extent of their multi-culturalist experience.

Well, in my case I know at least a little something of Greek culture from having lived there for 3 years, as well as my interested (sparked particularly by my 6th grade teacher my last year there). And I know a little something about Japanese culture from my MK housemate. And my reading has given me some knowledge of a lot of literature from all over (especially, but not exclusively, European), and even more history. Not as good as studying a culture first-hand as an adult, but probably better than a lot of multiculturalists.

You see Tim, you have had more "multi-cultural" experience than the majority of Americans, but you don't go around espousing some phony "multi-kulti" (as the Germans call it) rubbish.

To the left "multi-culturalism" simply means the death of Western culture with the final aim of some utopian "everyone-can-do-what-they-want-without-others-judging-them" type of nonsense. The aim is to cut people off from their culture. Culture is what gives most people an anchor, because family structure, religion, history and language are major parts of what makes a culture.

That explains why the basis of multiculturalism is that all cultures are equal except Western culture, which is evil because it's done so much to make the world a better place. Perhaps we should require multiculturalist women to undergo female circumcision (i.e., clitoridectomy).

Hot Air had another interesting piece today. It seems that after Candace beautifully pranked Twitter by sending out Sarah Jeong's racist tweets, but targeting blacks and Jews, they kicked her off until they were informed of their error, which exposed their leftist bias, and restored her after 12 hours. But in the interim a bunch of radical leftists mobbed her during and after breakfast, screeching at her (at one point one yelled in her ear through a bullhorn). These white femocrats were cursing out "white supremacy" -- to a black woman. Some people have no self-awareness, no sense of irony, and obviously a totally empty head. The technical term for such people is ideological leftists. The link is:
