As we learned during the Jayson Blair farce, the Affirmative Action attitudes that allow some to rise far above the level of their competence due to their race has had the same effect on the New York Times as it has on the executive branch of the federal government. Another case in point is the insufferably smug-looking moonbat Charles Blow:
Blow, a black, left-wing New York Times columnist, took to Twitter and the pages of the Times to excoriate Yale and a campus police officer over his son being detained at gunpoint. Apparently, Blow’s son met the description of a campus burglar. After learning of the incident, an incensed Blow published a series of racially-charged Tweets followed by a racially-charged Times column.
According to the Washington Examiner, Blow tweeted, “This is exactly why I have no patience for people trying to convince me that the fear these young black men feel isn’t real.” Blow also tweeted out slogans associated with protests involving race and the police: “I can’t breathe” and “Black lives matter.”
These slogans are closely linked to the similar slogans “Hands up don’t shoot” and “What do we want? Dead Cops!” All are used only by leftists at their most juvenile, irresponsible, and pernicious.
Blow’s typically counterproductive column adamantly rejected the notion that blacks should take responsibility for their behavior by screaming that the supposedly racist police will oppress them no matter what they do:
I am reminded of what I have always known, but what some would choose to deny: that there is no way to work your way out — earn your way out — of this sort of crisis. In these moments, what you’ve done matters less than how you look.
There is no amount of respectability that can bend a gun’s barrel. All of our boys are bound together.
The dean of Yale College and the campus police chief have apologized and promised an internal investigation, and I appreciate that. But the scars cannot be unmade. My son will always carry the memory of the day he left his college library and an officer trained a gun on him.
Please. I’ve had guns pointed at me too. So have a lot of people. Only those who have learned to get ahead in life by making a pageant of their own piteousness would think to be permanently scarred over it.
But any trauma is earthshaking when racism against sacred blacks is involved — as Blowhard strongly implies was the case. Then we learn this about the officer in question:
As it turns out, the officer is black. Yale’s police chief is also black.
After firing off this series of racially-charged tweets and a racially-charged column in no less than The New York Times, Blow now claims his outrage had nothing to do with race.
Current credibility level for Charles Blow: absolute zero. But no doubt his cushy position at the NY Slimes is still secure, him being oppressed and all.
