Alan Korwin is a writer in Scottsdale, Arizona, who specializes in books about gun law -- very pro-gun books about gun law, with titles like After You Shoot: Your Gun's Hot. The Perp's Not. Now What?
Mr. Korwin published a screed this week that must be read to be believed, and it's today's Most Ridiculous Right Wing Projection/Persecution Fantasy: Alan Korwin, Scottsdale Gun-Law Author, Says 'Birther' Is the 'New 'N' Word'.
According to a Scottsdale gun-law author, the word "birther" is a derogatory term "equivalent of the 'N' word."
Perhaps it's not surprising to hear something a bit nuts coming from the author of After You Shoot: Your Gun's Hot. The Perp's Not. Now What?, but Alan Korwin actually got this on the East Valley Tribune and Arizona Republic websites.
"'Birther,' used by the media with impunity, is a derogatory slur, the equivalent of the 'N' word used for another group to cast them as sub-human," Korwin writes. "You apply this new 'N' word to a huge group of politically-active Americans who've raised legitimate questions on a legitimate topic."
