A Racial Affront

I’m disgusted by this column in the Star-Tribune in the People's Republic of Minnesota. How can this writer possibly object to identifying a candidate as a racist Kluxer?

Somewhere between a recital/rally he held at the Varsity Theater in Dinkytown a month ago and Keith Ellison's Tuesday night victory in the DFL primary for the Fifth District seat, [Democrat Congressional candidate Alan]Fine changed keys. In the process, he lost any claim to moderation, thoughtfulness or originality, which were just a few of the attributes I poured on him.

Here's a sampling of what Fine had to say the day after Ellison -- who is white and a Christian -- handily won his hard-fought primary: "I'm personally offended that this person is a candidate for U.S. Congress. He is unfit to represent the voters of the Fifth District. ... He is the follower of a known racist, David Duke ... a person who believes that the black man is the anti-Christ, a person who believes that Jews are the scourge of the Earth. I'm personally offended as a Jew that we have a candidate like this running for U.S. Congress."

This new Alan Fine suddenly can't say the name "Keith Ellison" without saying the name "David Duke."

That’s right – Fine loses his claim to be a moderate, thoughtful decent man for objecting to the nomination of a member of the KKK, who organized for that racist organization ad Christian Identity groups during his student days, who brought known racists to speak on his college campus, and who continuously lied during the campaign to obscure his past memberships and association. After all, I guess that the Klan is mainstream in the Republican Party, and that holding to the hate-filled doctrines of Christian Identity constitutes acceptable religious practice for a nominee of a major political party and possible member of Congress. Objecting to such a candidate clearly makes one an extremist.

But let’s cut to the chase. No such column would ever be written or published in the MSM today – nor should it be. A column like the one quoted above is utterly reprehensible, and the author would be condemned – probably fired.
Except such a column was written. And published.

Only it was a little different from what I wrote. Take a look.

In the process, he lost any claim to moderation, thoughtfulness or originality, which were just a few of the attributes I poured on him.

Here's a sampling of what Fine had to say the day after Ellison -- who is black and a Muslim -- handily won his hard-fought primary: "I'm personally offended that this person is a candidate for U.S. Congress. He is unfit to represent the voters of the Fifth District. ... He is the follower of a known racist, Louis Farrakhan ... a person who believes that the white man is the anti-Christ, a person who believes that Jews are the scourge of the Earth. I'm personally offended as a Jew that we have a candidate like this running for U.S. Congress."

This new Alan Fine suddenly can't say the name "Keith Ellison" without saying the name "Louis Farrakhan."

Ellison has lied repeatedly about his past, and has been given a pass by the Star-Trib. This has been well documented over at Power Line and by Joel Mowbray. Now we are told that daring to speak out against the racist past and deceptive present of a candidate converts one from a thoughtful moderate to a hateful extremist.

The difference? Party, race, and religion.

Ellison is a Democrat, an African-American, and a Muslim. As such, the Star-Trib considers him beyond criticism – and defines any criticism of his documented history of bigotry as a sign of bigotry on the part of the critic. After all, liberals excuse racial and religious bigotry coming from minorities – if they are properly liberal.
