You Will Definitely Believe How Racist This Daily Caller Article Is
We've seen a lot of racist nonsense in our time, butthis contribution from the Daily Caller and Major General US Army Jerry Curry Retired Thank Goodness is truly special, a diamond-encrusted nuclear butt plug of are-you-even-serious-dude that makes us wonder if Jerry Curry, who served semi-prominently under Carter, Reagan, and Bush Sr., is feeling okay. Because holy. fucking. shit (emphasis ours):
The question is can [black] families and communities ever be reconstituted again, and do we have a sufficient number of black leaders who can and are able to shoulder the vision and burdens of a Martin Luther King, Jr.? Can Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton do it? If the answer is no, and I believe it is, then America’s white leadership will have to get rid of them and select their replacements.
Why don’t I suggest that Black Democrats select the replacements? Because Black Democrats are fine for house work, but not for doing heavy lifting. Name one that has put forward a meaningful call to action with a plan to restore the black family and community.
We, uh... but like... no way, right? There is no actual way that a man who could write these words and mean them ever served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense under Carter, Acting Press Secretary to the Secretary of Defense under Reagan, and Administrator of the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration under Bush Sr.
GET RID OF THEM? White leaders have to GET RID OF AL SHARPTON? How, what... DUDE THAT IS NOT HOW IT WORKS! And we are not even going to TOUCH "Black Democrats are fine for house work" because what even does that mean, really we are not kidding we have absolutely no idea what "house work" is in this analogy.
Dude is trolling us, right? Has to be, HAS TO BE, because here's how he begins (emphasis ours):
Enough is enough. Last week 88 year old Shorty Belton of Spokane, Washington, a white American and a veteran of World War II fighting in the Pacific, was beaten to death in the streets of Spokane, for no apparent reason, by two black teenagers, a sort of Trayvon Martin case in reverse.
There's the tell. Nobody with enough brains to not only rise to the rank of Major General but to serve under three presidents representing both major parties can possibly think the death of Shorty Belton is in any way analogous to the Trayvon Martin case. It's been said before, but here we go again: The SOLE REASON George Zimmerman became a household name and people -- black AND WHITE people -- got angry about it is that Zimmerman was NOT CHARGED WITH A CRIME after killing Trayvon Martin under mysterious circumstances.
Jerry Curry knows this, but he won't let rationality get in the way of a good grift. Yup, another grifter, or "racial hustler" in the words of Jerry Curry, trading on misplaced resentment and grievance and entitlement. How are we so sure it's a grift? Well, for one thing Jerry Curry apparently ran for president in 2008, and his website would still like to know if you want to give him money. We had to do a little digging to figure out that Jerry's run was in 2008; there's nothing on the site to indicate that his candidacy isn't a going concern, hmm, wonder why that might be?
And ya know what, Jerry? Please proceed. Have you noticed that dumb racists seem to be getting less shy about expressing their repugnant beliefs in public? Maybe it's because they're mistaking their self-constructed media and social bubbles for the American mainstream.
Gosh, there is so much more nonsense here, but you know it all: Every Black leader in America has said they are the real victim of the death of Shorty Belton; Black parents do not teach their children not to be evil monsters or even how to bust up a chiffarobe anymore; bootstraps, and so on.
But here's a little Nice Time rinse for you: Senator Ted Cruz, who is definitely going to be the GOP nominee in 2016 (count on it), has put a thing on his website that honors Dr. Martin Luther King and celebrates the anniversary of his famous speech in Washington while somehow not saying a single wrong or terrible thing. For instance:
Our Nation has blessed heritage, but slavery is our original sin, a tragic stain on our history. A stain that took a horrific Civil War and the blood of hundreds of thousands to begin to erase. And, in 1963, Jim Crow was still alive and well, enforcing through law second-class citizenship on millions of African-Americans.
Even after Brown v. Board of Education, schools remained segregated. Voting booths were largely closed to black voters. Lynchings and brutality were far too common. And our system of justice turned a blind eye towards the rights of African-American citizens.
And thank gosh all that is 100% totally fixed now, despite the best efforts of Trayvon Martin and Barack Obama.
