At this point it can’t be easy for liberals to push their absurd ideology ever deeper into self-parody. Yet they manage:
Just before Thanksgiving last week, the liberal site Slate dredged up a 2010 piece claiming that the reason Americans love the white meat on a turkey is because we are all racists.
Ron Rosenbaum pondered the timeless philosophical question of why some people prefer white meat.
“It was enough to make me wonder whether there could be a racial, if not racist, subtext here,” he wrote.
Before long Rosenbaum had worked himself into a full lather, spewing spittle as he raved:
“Despite its superior taste, dark meat has dark undertones for some. Dark meat evokes the color of earth, soil. Dark meat seems to summon up ancient fears of contamination and miscegenation as opposed to the supposed superior purity of white meat. I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that white meat remains the choice of a holiday that celebrates Puritans.”
Needless to say, if liberal ideology had any validity whatsoever, moonbats wouldn’t be so hard pressed to find racism that isn’t directed against whites.
