Uncommon Sense

politics and society are, unfortunately, much the same thing

Is hate politically correct if you’re a Democrat?

Erika Smith at Indy Star: ‘I Really Don’t Care’ About Truth of Andre Carson’s Comment
September 4, 2011 by Tom Blumer

On Wednesday (at NewsBusters; at BizzyBlog), quoting Indiana Congressman Andre Carson’s inexcusable, hateful comment at a Congressional Black Caucus event on August 22 (key sentence: “Some of them in Congress right now of this Tea Party would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree”), I observed that “Carson was obviously accusing some of his congressional colleagues, whom he gutlessly would not name, of actually wanting (not metaphorically wishing) to see himself and his black colleagues lynched.” I should also note that in an earlier segment of the quote originally cited by Matthew Balan at NewsBusters, Carson said, of Tea Party sympathizers wishes, “And this is beyond symbolic change.” This is why I also wrote that “The meaning of the words Carson used is not arguable.”

With a disregard for the truth and gutlessness similar to Carson’s, Indianapolis Star columnist Erika D. Smith wrote today that the congressman “had the guts to stand up and say what we’ve all seen over the last three years,” while also asserting that “I really don’t care” if any congressmen actually want to lynch anyone.
