Yesterday Alyssa Milano, today the guy who's going scorched earth on
Tucker Carlson for comments Carlson made years ago on a comedy show now
has bigoted comments of his own bubble to the surface. I love watching
these guys squirm on their own petard. I'm sure he'll get the standard
progressive "it's different when we do it" pass, though.


--------------------------------
Media Matters President Angelo Carusone is currently leading a boycott
campaign against Fox News host Tucker Carlson, a co-founder of The Daily
Caller News Foundation, in an attempt to get him fired.

Carusone and Media Matters, which openly pine for the destruction of Fox
News, have justified the left-wing boycott campaign by pointing to a
number of statements that Carlson made on a radio shock jock show
between 2006 and 2011.

But Carusone has his own track record of inflammatory statements.
Carusone's now-defunct blog included degrading references to "trannies",
"jewry" and Bangladeshis.

Carusone posted a lengthy diatribe in November 2005 about a Bangladeshi
man who was robbed by "a gang of transvestites", as Carusone described
it. Carusone was offended that the gang was described as "attractive" in
an article.

"Did you notice the word attractive? What the fuck is that doing in
there? Is the write[r] a tranny lover too? Or, perhaps he's trying to
justify how these trannies tricked this Bangladeshi in the first place?
Look man, we don't need to know whether or not they were attractive. The
fucking guy was Bangladeshi," Carusone wrote. "And while we're out, what
the hell was he doing with $7,300 worth of stuff. The guy's Banladeshi!"

Carusone also chided police for not advising the public to "stay away
from tranny bars, stay away from places where Eddie Murphy and Robert
Downey Jr. have/are visiting, don't fucking kiss a transvestite, don't
bring a group of transvestites back to your room, etc..."

The future Media Matters president titled his post, "Tranny Paradise".

In another post that same month, Carusone downplayed a male basketball
coach's alleged sexual and physical abuse of his female players, adding,
"lighten up Japs", using what is considered an ethnic slur.

In another November 2005 blog post, Carusone praised former Democratic
West Virginia Sen. Robert Byrd, a former Grand Kleagle of the Klu Klux
Klan, as one of his ten favorite public figures. "In his lunacy, we
trust," Carusone wrote of Byrd.

Carusone made anti-Semitic comments on his blog as well. He wrote in one
October 2005 post that "despite his jewry, you KNOW he's adorable,"
referring to his boyfriend.

In another post, Carusone claimed that his boyfriend only leaned
conservative "as a result of his possession of several bags of Jewish
gold."

Carusone did not return an inquiry from TheDCNF asking whether he sees
any contradiction between his boycott campaigns and his own past
comments. Carusone previously dismissed concerns about his past
anti-Semitic comments on the grounds that his longtime partner is Jewish.

Prominent conservatives have rallied behind Carlson. Ben Shapiro derided
Media Matters as "a political smear factory designed to perform
precisely that function against anyone to the right of Hillary Clinton.

"Our nation cannot maintain its culture of free speech if we continue to
reward those who seek to destroy careers rather than rebut ideas,"
National Review's David French wrote in a column on Monday. "And when
you reward a Media Matters search-and-destroy fishing expedition with
calls for boycotts or reprisals, then you are doing your part to destroy
debate. It's vengeful. It's cowardly. And it's exactly the online world
that spiteful partisans want to build," French added.

This is an interesting comment. A) How do you know he's queer,
did you suck his dick or vice versa? B) By responding to
Thanny's comment of the hypocrisy of the guy making his own
bigoted remarks with bigoted remarks of your own you're basically
telling Twinkle's he's a piece of shit for even posting this.
Kudos.

If he "gets a pass" for anti-gay anti-Semitic repartee, it's not because
he's leftist, but because he's openly wedded to a gay Jew.

Ah, I didn't know marrying a minority gives one a politically correct
set of hypocrisy shields that allow you to say the same things with
impunity that you're blasting others for.

Good to know. Of course that just highlights how bankrupt the whole
outrage culture really is.

No, I disagree. I think you *did* know that. It's a simple extension
of, e.g., how a black has greater liberty to complain about black
behavior without being suspected of racism.

Fish in a barrel. "*Anything* culture" is typically bankrupt.

That would be relevant if the Jewish boyfriend had made the comments. But
if I, for example, had married a black woman, I bet I'd have no PC
super-shields for 'complaining about black behavior', let alone for using
the n-word while doing it, just because my wife was black.

And since you're so well-versed in the mechanics of PC free passes, please
explain how exactly does this guy being involved with a gay Jew give him PC
super-shields for using slurs when talking about Japanese and transgender
people?

Well, although I specifically didn't address those, it probably does
give him *some* general immunity to being thought of as an ultra
closed-minded bigot. Indeed, you'd get some, too, on account of your
black wife. Of course, such immunity probably wouldn't cover
unambiguously pointed offenses such as screamed racial epithets and
cross-burnings...

Could be, as I don't really know what 'identity politics' is. But what
I tried to indicate was that someone who's demonstrably not a
conventional bigot is less likely to be thought any sort of one. And
that, afaik, is irrespective of partisan gender.

So is that why it doesn't apply to Trump, then? Because he's a leftist too?

"Something you hear a lot from the right when you bring up the
President’s penchant for inflammatory language that ignites neo-Nazis is
that the president can’t possibly be anti-Semitic because he has a
Jewish daughter. It’s a line we have heard uttered by almost every
member of the Trump administration at one time or another, as well as
from his supporters — including his Jewish supporters — when
uncomfortable things come up, like him saying there were “fine people”
among the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, or his white nationalist friend
Steve Bannon, or the fact that David Duke sees in him a friend and
co-conspirator in the fight for a whiter America.

That’s when they inevitably jump in with the line: “But how could he be
anti-Semitic? He has a Jewish daughter!”

Or are you saying it's only different when leftists do it?

Exactly, I'd forgotten that Ivanka was married to a gay Jew too.

Yesterday Alyssa Milano, today the guy who's going scorched earth on
Tucker Carlson for comments Carlson made years ago on a comedy show now
has bigoted comments of his own bubble to the surface. I love watching
these guys squirm on their own petard. I'm sure he'll get the standard
progressive "it's different when we do it" pass, though.
If he "gets a pass" for anti-gay anti-Semitic repartee, it's not because
he's leftist, but because he's openly wedded to a gay Jew.
Ah, I didn't know marrying a minority gives one a politically correct
set of hypocrisy shields that allow you to say the same things with
impunity that you're blasting others for.
No, I disagree. I think you *did* know that. It's a simple extension
of, e.g., how a black has greater liberty to complain about black
behavior without being suspected of racism.
That would be relevant if the Jewish boyfriend had made the comments. But
if I, for example, had married a black woman, I bet I'd have no PC
super-shields for 'complaining about black behavior', let alone for using
the n-word while doing it, just because my wife was black.
And since you're so well-versed in the mechanics of PC free passes, please
explain how exactly does this guy being involved with a gay Jew give him PC
super-shields for using slurs when talking about Japanese and transgender
people?
Well, although I specifically didn't address those, it probably does
give him *some* general immunity to being thought of as an ultra
closed-minded bigot. Indeed, you'd get some, too, on account of your
black wife. Of course, such immunity probably wouldn't cover
unambiguously pointed offenses such as screamed racial epithets and
cross-burnings...
So basically we've gone the long way around to get back to where we
started: He gets a pass because "it's different when we do it".
No, basically we've reiterated that his pass is unrelated to "leftism".
Well, you indicated these passes are all based on identity politics, which
is almost exclusively the province of the Left.
Yeah, you NEVER see cons playing to evangelicals, right?

Isn't that why cons keep saying Trump isn't Anti-semitic? Because his
son-in-law is a Jew, and his daughter converted?

Do try and keep up with your own sides sweeping hypocrisy before
criticizing the other side's.

Why don't you marry a gay Jew and find out? Or have you done that
already, Twinkles.
