Why John Derbyshire Hasn't Been Fired (Yet) “FR mentioned”
The Atlantic Wire ^ | Apr 6, 2012 | Elspeth Reeve

Posted on 04/07/2012 3:26:17 PM PDT by DJ MacWoW

Derbyshire doesn't do the really obvious racist stuff -- the stuff that goes up at FreeRepublic.com, for example -- like post photos Obama in stereotypical tribal garb with a bone through his nose.

The libs sure have their knickers in a knot and are doing their best to fuel racial tension.

I'm Scottish. A picture of me in tribal garb wouldn't be racist would it?

The racialist crap is so d@mn constipated!

The only garb I've ever seen Obama in that would also be considered racist by the left is the garb he wore himself.

It’s a communist tool used to divide in order to weaken a nation. It works.

Yet liberals practice the same “defense” only moreso. They run for the hills faster than anyone. Just take a look at housing patterns, where they send their kids to school, shop, etc. The answer’s obvious. Hypocrites of the worst kind.

I have never seen a picture such as the one that they describe. Knowing FR, it would have been removed.

What??? There’s a pic on our beloved FR of Obama with a bone through his nose?

Why wasn’t I pingd?

Dang it. I’m always missing the fun around here.

Of course not. Libs don’t have to prove anything, simply make the accusation.

These leftists are not going to intimidate and shut up everyone with their race bait and hate. They have been nailed lying about the Zimmerman case to inspire black on white violence and they have acheived their goal. These hooded liberals are trying to cover up the racist blood on their hands. They are klansmen.

It depends. If it should suit some idiot loony lib’s agenda, then, yes, it would be racist, I’m afraid...

See post 14. I found said picture of bone-nosed Obama.
 
Right next to the pic of Bush with a bone.
 
 
We are equal-opportunity racists, here.

In July 2007, after The New Republic published an article by an American soldier in Iraq titled “Shock Troops,” allegations of inadequate fact-checking were leveled against the magazine. Critics alleged that the piece contained inconsistent details indicative of fabrication. The identity of the anonymous soldier, Scott Thomas Beauchamp, was revealed. Beauchamp was married to Elspeth Reeve, one of the magazine’s three fact-checkers. As a result of the controversy, the New Republic and the United States Army launched investigations, reaching different conclusions.[42][43][44]

They are lying as usual. The writer is probably referring to that Muslim garb photo and added the “bone” bit much like NBC edited the Zimmerman 911 call to garner more outrage. They lie like you and I breathe. They don’t think twice about it. How many times have we seen lib politicians lie through their teeth on national television? Infinite times. They just don’t care. They could be caught on 2048 HD 3D Max video stealing a diamond from a jewelery store in close up and they would still deny it. “Lie and deny” is the lib mantra.

I got curious. I followed the link in the Atlantic article & entered the photo URL into Tin Eye. I got back 156 results — one of which was from FR. Another one was from DU. (No mention of that in the Atlantic.)

Hey, where’s the bone in his nose? Surely the author wouldn’t race bait, would he? The liberal left who read that tripe wouldn’t have the guts to come here and see that the statement was a falsehood.

OK, Mr. PC moderator.

Since you deleted said pic in post 14 of Obama with bone in nose.

Better delete post 19 of Bone-nosed Bush.

Or do your fears only go one way?

I thought the article was reasonably accurate & full of common sense. Only when blacks admit that they are disproportionally criminal will they begin to turn their lives around for the better.

I’m so sick of the race hustlers. If they want to call me racist, I’ll just call them racist, too. I really don’t care anymore. Their words are meaningless.

Shhh. Better not tell the moderator.

Seems they are afraid of some nobody blogger reporting FR is a racist rag.

They are sending Bone-nosed Obama pics to zot-ville.

My guess is they will clean up this mess, then zot this entire thread.

That way - this never happened.
