Skip to comments.Joan Walsh - The Most Racist Journalist in Media?

Well, shes certainly making a case for the title.
In a piece titled, When white people lack bourgeois values, the Salon Editor at Large manages a race and class-baiting exacta, covering an alleged economic disdain shown by Republicans towards African-Americans, and charging the GOP with promoting policies which shackle women to the home.
In attacking a Rick Santorum speech on family values, in which he correctly stated, When the family breaks down, the economy breaks down, Walsh had this to say:
Its a fascinating worldview that colors the entire GOP primary campaign, in which actual policies to help workers and families are rejected in favor of those that cut government and shackle women to the home, and it needs to be better understood.
Its also another reminder that the prejudice and disdain Republicans once reserved for African-Americans has spread like a toxic mist to stigmatize a lot of other people, including a lot of white folks.
In citing proof of these allegations of prejudice towards white people, Walsh embarrassingly references the 46 million Americans on food stamps, the vast majority of whom are white people.
Embarrassing why? Because it was just last May that Walsh used the food stamp argument to prove that Newt Gingrich had used the phrase as coded racism against black people.
Calling the use of the term food stamp, racist towards blacks, when a majority of those on food stamps are white, can only make sense in the mind of a bigot projecting their own true brand of racism.

Who cares what this woman wants. Her opinion isn’t worth spit.
“Walsh embarrassingly references the 46 million Americans on food stamps, the vast majority of whom are white people
A very specious argument considering that whites make up 72 percent of the population.
Ninety percent of black children are on food stamps.
What is really amazing is that blacks make up only 13 percent of the population.
Judging by all the race baiting and media attention, one might think that they are the oppressed majority.
The sun rises in the morning.
In some people’s eyes, anything a white person does is racist. Learn it and love it.
hee hee hee
When you look at the world through race-colored glasses, you end up seeing a racist under every bed.
Like all leftists, Walsh wants to change the country into some sort of Marxist eden where men will be subordinate to women. There is no reasoning with these types of people, because it's clear to see after reading any of their insane columns, it's impossible to do so.
