Sensitive, Thoughtful Liberals

Wednesday, August 02, 2006
I can't decide if I think it's racist, repugnant, and offensive, or merely repugnant and offensive -- I'd encourage arguments either way -- but whichever you choose, Jane Hamsher at Huffington did it.


[Update: I guess someone told Hamsher she was the object of justified derision, as it's gone. Luckily, Say Anything had the sense I lacked, and got a screen capture of it.]

Evidently Jane Hamsher thinks it's repugnant and offensive, else why would she bother? I just sit here thinking, WTF?

At the end of the post is this: Graphic by DarkBlack. Googling for DarkBlack turns up a heavy metal band, an open source support company, and various other unrelated things. So, I wonder who it is?

StY,

Your apparent lack of the sophistication to fully comprehend the subtle and nuanced political views expressed by the leaders of the netroots doesn't give you the right to criticize political art generated by one of its recognized leaders, a driving force in the movement which is inexorably taking its place in the vanguard of those who believe that a progressive world view is the sine qua non of the true citizen of the world, which type of citizen is the only type who should be allowed to manifest their views in a truly progressive society which embraces all of Gaia's creation by practicing a level of ecologically based style of living which will be the only salvation of the world.

This is the future of the Democrat Party. Learn to deal with it, peasant.

PS - You still use carbon every day, don't you? Just remember - Karbon Kills.

When I see stuff like this, part of me wants to move to an igloo someplace off the coast of northern Alaska incomunicado and live on seal blubber and Folger's coffee. I think I could tolerate it better.

I wonder if the ad agencies will pull their ads from Huffington like Kaine did in 2005?

Jane Hamsher a racist? By all current standards she is.

Bullshit.


(Wow, congratulations on that sentence though.)

Know your enemy.

Interestingly enough, the picture has now disappeazred from Huff'n'puff.

That is just disgusting. Fortunately, there's increased awareness of her photos due to many conservative bloggers.
