Robert Stacy McCain’s Latest Excuse

David Weigel lets Robert Stacy McCain talk: Robert Stacy McCain Responds to Gawker, Defends Palin Collaborator Lynn Vincent.

Of course he tosses out some insults; that’s his modus operandi when called out on his racist friends and statements.

But we also get yet another attempted explanation for his ugly comment about interracial marriage:

McCain admitted that he has made himself “vulnerable to guilt by association smears” because he’ll “send an email without thinking” about what’s in it. For a long time, he was not allowed to talk about the rumors that dogged his Washington Times career. “I spent years biting my tongue while this stuff went viral over the Internet,” said McCain. “I’ve just learned to live with a bad reputation.” On the interracial couples story: “I know lots of interracial couples. They’re attributing that to me based on something they don’t know anything about.”

This is what he wrote in an email “without thinking:”

“[T]he media now force interracial images into the public mind and a number of perfectly rational people react to these images with an altogether natural revulsion. The white person who does not mind transacting business with a black bank clerk may yet be averse to accepting the clerk as his sister-in-law, and THIS IS NOT RACISM, no matter what Madison Avenue, Hollywood and Washington tell us.”

No word on why McCain also posted links to the white supremacist website American Renaissance and the neo-Nazi website overthrow.com, at Free Republic using a pseudonym based on the name of a pro-slavery Confederate apologist.

Here’s an index page listing a few of the hundreds of links Robert Stacy McCain posted at Free Republic under the name “BurkeCalhounDabney.” All these links have been deleted (I wonder why?) but the index remains, and you can see that McCain linked not only to American Renaissance, but to the vile neo-Nazi site overthrow.com (now offline), run by McCain’s friend Bill White, currently in jail in Virginia:

And no word on why McCain has even written articles for American Renaissance:

Here’s an article McCain wrote for American Renaissance in 2002 under his pseudonym Burke C. Dabney, titled Race and Teenage Pregnancy:

One might well wonder about indiscriminate anti-natalist propaganda when some groups in the country are already below replacement-level fertility. The “success” of such propaganda only accelerates the decline of the white population. If crusaders against teenage motherhood were serious, they would concentrate on the black and Hispanic girls who account for more than half of teenage births. Targeting whites as part of a general campaign is yet another form of racial suicide.

I guess he just wasn’t thinking then, either.
