I followed a link from commenter Harlana to Little Green Footballs, where Charles Johnson reads Fox News discussion threads so you don’t have to.
There are almost 5000 comments posted in the thread — these are from the first few pages. Notice that the racist bastards deliberately misspell their slurs or insert random spaces, so they aren’t caught by word filters. And many of the worst comments have numerous “likes” from other commenters.
All grammar and spelling errors are exactly as found…
“not nignogs their death is a plus”…”i don’t even consider them to be included in the human race let alone on a pedistal. the people that do are a bunch of loosers.”…”This is typical of the blk gene pool; it happens all the time”…”Who cares? Black_trash gone is enough”…
It goes on and on and on. I read about a thousand comments there, give or take, and they break down into hateful shit that frequently makes the above look tame, a very small number complaining about those posts, and a larger number complaining about the liberal conspiracy to make Fox and conservatives look bad. As has been stated before, the best way to embarrass a conservative is to disseminate his words as widely as possible.
This is Why We Fight. This is the nature of the opposition. I live amongst these people here in what they proudly refer to as “the buckle of the bible belt” and I’m here to tell you that John’s post of last week was right on the money. You need to read their sites–Fox News, Free Republic, Lucianne.com, Michelle Malkin’s site, and others. See what they say to each other when they think they aren’t being watched. The palpable hatred and violent fantasies will make you sick, but you need to know what they want, and you need to keep seeing it in their own words. It’s one thing to say “we read them so you don’t have to” but it’s entirely another to make you all see that you do, in fact, need to. In a few days after this thread is dead, some conservatives will post here claiming that it’s all projection and fantasy, just like they did with John’s post last week. None of that will change a thing. If you’ve ever wondered why I dump shit all over the sorry-assed conservatrolls we have here, it’s because there is no fundamental difference between them and the people quoted above. Their world is the world that our little trolls would make, and people such as they deserve only contempt.
Lest you or anyone accuse me of nutpicking, I am specifically calling out the commenters on those sites. But I’ll note that there’s a reason that racists and bigots frequent sites like Michelle Malkin’s site (which is actually pretty ironic) and Freeperland and Fox.
If you love this country, you need to know and you need to fight for it. If you want a better future for your children, you need to know and you need to fight for it.
EDIT: I’ll go even further. Knowing what you know after reading that swill, it is incumbent upon you to go out into the world and ask of your conservative friends and relatives (because we all have them) an explanation of their associates. ABL once asked me why I thought it was important to differentiate between the person of George W. Bush and the policies he had which had racist ends. I replied that I didn’t think he was personally a racist. Well, you know, I still don’t. But I understand a little bit better about where she was coming from. Until and unless they are made to deal with the very real results of their policies and ideas, and are held responsible for the company they keep and the people they promote, they will not change. The real hard core ones cannot, and will not change. But others will, and those others must be held responsible in order that they stop supporting the worst of the worst.
