Keli Goff on CNN: Fighting Bigotry with Bigotry
No, not in and of itself. But in the historical context of our country, someone labeling a Jewish person cheap in a particular context, a black person lazy in a particular context could be perceived as racially inflammatory. So, when you have Senator McCain who tried to convinced us that Sarah Palin was qualified to be president, say that an African-American woman with a PhD, who is a Rhodes Scholar and a former assistant secretary of state is, quote, "not qualified" and not bright for what she said, it can open up questions of a cultural land mine that I think the media would be irresponsible not to cover and asking certain questions about where that's coming from, particular from a white man of a certain age. (Emphasis added.)Goff states the belief that white men of a certain age should be held to a different standard, that we should assume them to be racist based on their race and age. Not only does Goff support racist stereotypes, she doubles up and pushes age discrimination.
Not that anyone should be surprised by this, discrimination and bigotry have been the tool of liberals and the left from the start. Feminists support and push discrimination against men. Lefties support job and educational discrimination against white males and various others. (See Steve's recent post. I was shocked that Steve was shocked. Where has he been the last 40 years?)
Naturally, no one at CNN batted an eye at Goff's comments. Bigotry against white males is so common among CNN types that it has no impact.
