The Stunning Hypocrisy of Erick Erickson

Or how everyone seems to ignore the rampant racism, xenophobia, and misogyny of Erick Erickson & his site

In the aftermath of yesterday’s comments by Donald Trump about Fox News debate moderator Megyn Kelly, RedState’s own Erick Erickson decided to disinvite Trump from his extremist right wing confab. Apparently, Trump’s comments were a bridge too far.

Has no one, especially other journalists and pundits, bothered to consider that Erickson is not one to talk about tone or content of speech, when Erickson’s own statements are a hate-filled orgy of misogyny, racism, and xenophobia?

(HT to Dr_Matt for graphic)

That’s just a small sample of the comments by Erickson himself. Yet he continues to act like the tone police in public comments:

Then there’s the fever swamps that are the commenters on RedState itself. In fact, Trump’s comments are indistinguishable from the commenters there.

In other words, it seems that Erickson’s reason to disinvite has more to do with the target of Trump’s statement than the content of Trump’s statement. Moreover, Erickson was silent about Trump calling women bimbos, let alone calling Mexicans rapists. His misogyny and xenophobia has been on display from the moment Trump got into the race, but Erickson didn’t disinvite him over those statements. For if Trump had directed his statement at someone, say a Democrat, Erickson would applaud.

After all, Erickson applauded Trump’s statements attacking Rosie O’Donnell just the other day.

This is the GOP and its core constituency. This is Erick Erickson and RedState.
