Wingnut Dan Riehl Triples Down on Racism
Yesterday, when I posted the article about Dan Riehl’s ludicrous racist fail, he immediately sent this to me on Twitter:
@LizardoidI get confused, Chuckie. How many years has it been since you’ve been relevant?
But it looks like Dan is suddenly pretty concerned about my relevance after all, because today he’s posted yet another blatantly racist rant, titled: Charles Johnson’s Ignorance Over Trayvon Photo Flap Tops Memeorandum.
Don’t all irrelevant losers end up at the top of Memeorandum?
MEGA-DERPlgf blogger Charles Johnson has finally made it fully into the arms of the left with his post attacking me, which gives him enough links and attention to result in this. What’s sad is how willing Johnson has been to throw away everything he seemed to once understand about the media and turn on so many once friends to do it. Worse is the race-based ignorance of so many blacks I’m seeing in attacking me, when they should be criticizing the media, instead.
In this post of mine, along with this one on the AP, I pointed out that some media outlets appear to prefer using an image of Trayvon Martin that has been altered in a manner that makes him appear to be much lighter in skin color than he actually was. Said image has been enhanced to make him look so much lighter, even his facial features appear altered at that point.
I love how Riehl states this as a fact, when he’s provided absolutely no evidence for it. But that’s exactly how these people roll — facts, evidence, proof, all irrelevant.
No where have I said a darker image of Martin would suggest he was somehow guilty of something, or that it might justify his being shot in any manner.
Actually, Dan did write that the lighter image made him look more “innocent.” Which is logically the same thing. But logic is irrelevant, of course.
Among a few interesting items uncovered in trying to examine the facts behind the shooting of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin without drawing any conclusions, was that a widely viewed photograph of Martin appears to have been altered, somewhat
He keeps repeating this like a mantra, hoping that if he says it enough it will magically become true. It won’t.
Then Dan tells “the blacks” how they’re supposed to feel about his strange fantasies: they should get upset at the media for non-existent image manipulation.
Johnson, the many progressives and now many blacks who have been attacking me over it are being played and they don’t even know it. If anything, blacks especially should feel insulted and upset at the media, including the AP - not me. My whole point questions their judgement and worldview, not Trayvon Martin’s, or Zimmerman’s.
By seeming to prefer using a lighter image of Martin to further fuel the story line that he was a total innocent in the encounter and Zimmerman is guilty before all the facts are clear, my concern is that they feel that making Martin look less black in the eyes of the their [sic] readers, somehow makes him look less guilty of something.
I had to stop here to laugh. OK, let’s continue.
But rather than see the potential for racism in the media’s judgment (lighter = better, darker = worse)…
That would be your judgment, Dan. It’s weirdly fascinating how Riehl seems totally unable to stop repeating his racist assumptions in front of the whole world. “Projection” doesn’t even begin to describe this level of deranged disconnection from reality. But in Riehl’s world, reality is irrelevant.
…for a now unhinged blogger like Johnson, progressives and many blacks, it seems easier to focus their anger and hate on a white conservative with a blog. Worse, my link to the late Andrew Bretbart makes it a trifecta for them. It’s especially sad in Johnson’s case, as he once understood what blogging was all about, along with the various games played by the mainstream media.
Can’t you just feel Riehl’s concern? It leaps off the page at you, snarling.
As for the many blacks attacking me, when it’s actually the media, including the AP, who appears to be saying to them, lighter is better, while darker is bad, and they aren’t even able to see that, the pre-judgment and ignorance on display is just sad.
Boo hoo. Dan is so sad about “the blacks” and their ignorance, you just have to feel for him.
Said leaders, I use the term loosely, seem only interested in fueling outrage and a mob mentality for political gain. It’s sad to see so many black Americans still falling for it after so many decades. Their minds haven’t been freed, all that’s changed is the owners of the plantation. Too many would be black leaders are too happy to lead them down a path through a cotton field of ignorance and hate ending at the ballot box, before just going on and on with no real end in sight.
Yes, he really did just write that the “owners of the plantation” are leading blacks “through a cotton field of ignorance,” in a post declaring that he’s definitely no racist.
Meanwhile, to further illustrate my “irrelevance,” Riehl has been spewing insults at me on Twitter today like a lame-brained fire hose, including calling me a child molester again:
By the time I finish writing this, he’ll probably have added another six or seven insults to the list. Man, I’d hate to see what Dan Riehl would say about me if I were actually relevant.
