Still Bigots After All These Years

The guy who occupies pride of place on many far-right bloggers’ blogrolls, and had occupied even more until the lefty bloggers pointed out his racism against Native Americans, is showing his true colors again (h/t Joe Bodell of MNCR):

Never put insulting half of America and a fifth of the world’s population past Tracy Eberly of Anti-Strib.What’s the issue this time? Oh, just Eberly misreading a news article in order to let some pretty violent racism shine through. You know what, on second thought, don’t click that link, posted yesterday afternoon. Here’s a screenshot of the offending and offensive post…

Let’s get this piece straight: the alleged rapist accused law enforcement officials of persecuting him for traditional behavior, and Eberly takes the alleged rapist at his word in order to assert his rhetorical codpiece: he believes, naturally, that rape is a part of traditional Muslim behavior.And then tries to hang the case around the neck of those evil godless libruls.

People like Eberly disgust me, personally. Anyone who willingly takes an article like this, warps it, and then tries to hang it around the necks of those with whose politics he disagrees has deeper issues than I care to dignify with even cursory discussion.

My question is where the rest of Minnesota’s conservative blogosphere, known colloquially as the Minnesota Organization of Blogs, stands on this. We on the left side of the aisle have been called to task by our less horribly racist colleagues on the Right when one of our number says something inflammatory; what’s good for goose is good for the gander.

With respect to this wrong-headed, racist, and disgusting post, I heartily await disavowals and criticism from the leading figures in Minnesota’s conservative blogosphere.

The Republican Party wouldn’t be bad too, since Eberly sees fit to associate coddling of rapists with liberals and Democratic elected leaders. Paging Mark Drake…

The righties’ response to Joe Bodell’s calling them out? Why, attacking Joe, of course.  (Meanwhile, reality-based blogger Spotty over at The Cucking Stool has a few words on the subject.)
