Hate speech from the left

There’s a big to-do about Ann Coulter’s use of an offensive “f” word. Why is that when a conservative says something like that it’s a major news story but so-called liberals get a free pass?

In case you missed the vile pronouncements from the left, west coast blogger Patterico has a list. Here’s a sample from syndicated columnist Alexander Cockburn:

There is a sound case to be made for dropping a tactical nuclear weapon on the Cuban section of Miami. The move would be applauded heartily by most Americans. Alas, Operation Good Riddance would require the sort of mature political courage sadly lacking in Washington, D.C., these days.

  1. Remember folks, when lefties say insensitive things, it’s witty sarcasm that flies over the heads of stupid conservatives.

    When righties say insensitive things, it’s hate speech.

    Once you get brainwashed by the MSM, it all makes sense.

  2. Vile and disgusting, but utterly mundane comment by a leftist. Only a fool would believe that this cockburn weakling is being facetious; the left has no humanity. The bearded monster in your Patria is proof enough. Never underestimate the levels they will take their hate; Russia, Germany (nationalist – *socialist*), Romania, Cuba, Cambodia, China… these are the mass cemeteries that inevitably result from their ascent to power; tragically we see this ascent happening all over the West.

  3. Even if he really believed it, this Cockburn troll would never dare make a similar comment about another ethnic or minority group, because he knows the price would be too high. However, he also knows that bashing the Cuban exile community is not only eminently safe but potentially profitable.

    Everybody in the media knows this; it’s been proven countless times, so there’s no real disincentive or deterrent against it. That’s why Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Jennings, Katie Couric and the rest have blatantly dumped on or seriously offended Cuban exiles without the slightest penalty. None of them, though, would even come close to acting the same way with respect to, say, black Americans. These glorified hypocrites may be a lot of things, but they’re not stupid.
