Ken Layne at Wonkette Hates Whitey, Thinks Jesus Was "an Arab"

Probably the most blatant racist post I've ever read even on the lefty blogosphere. And that doesn't even mention the dishonest part.

Zip has the low down.

Bachmann made a campaign stop at the Midwest Spirit Christian Music Festival on Aug. 5 in West Des Moines to give a speech about her Christian faith. It was raining during her the appearance, so when Bachmann took the stage, she asked, “Who likes wet people?” referring to the still-damp masses who stuck around for her talk.

“Yeah, that’s right. Because we have the God of the winds and the rain don’t we?” she said immediately after — a key phrasing that was edited out of the shorter clip. “We serve a mighty God.”

Tell us Ken, exactly what is it you hate so much about Michelle Bachman? I mean is it because she's white? A Christian? Barack Obama is also a Christianist you know. He's also for the rights of Gay folks sans the marriage part. I mean she's not really even a contender for the Presidency IMO. So why all the hate?

Its not like everyone doesn't know that Wonkette is a bunch of dishonest political hacks. But racist political hacks? The Wonkette editorial board needs to do more that just slap Ken on the wrists. Seriously. Before you become the Stormfront of the lefty blogs.

Oh who am I kidding. My expectations of the left are probably too high.

Update: The resolution is here at The Other McCain.

I want to apologize for misusing Stacey Robert McCain’s original video . . . I was angry so I decided to take Mrs. Bachmann’s line out of context to make her seem more overtly racist in light of her recent signing of that Iowa marriage pledge that said black children were better off under slavery than in Obama’s America. Whether or not I dislike Michele Bachmann, it wasn’t right to deliver a dishonest blow like that. I wanted to apologize to Mr. McCain and all of you directly. . . .

I have removed the video from my Youtube channel.

Well that kind of clears that up. One note it takes a bigger man to admit a mistake than to make one. But I feel this pledge is being somewhat misrepresented in much the same way that Ms. Bachmann's statement was. The pledge simply compares some of the issues in minority communities in the modern era as just as horrific if not more horrific than the situation some black families found themselves in prior to the 1860's.

So in the interest of full and accurate disclosure. here it is.

Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860
was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an AfricanAmerican baby born after the election of the USA‟s first African-American President.
Of course these issues are not exclusive to the black community alone. All communities suffer these same issues to one extent or another.

But no one ever said that black families were better off as slaves. It simply states that their taskmasters at the time were less likely to result in split families than the results produced by the current welfare state.

That's right, if you're on the dole policy may, in my opinion, push people to make choices that split families. Or make splitting families more likely.

In either case you are worse off. Now you are beholden to the welfare state and all its endless nosing and regulation. After all if you're taking government money then the government has every right to tie strings to that check.

You become less free. Which is not the intended result of the blood of all who died war between the states? No the intent was for black folks to be better off, more free. Free to live as equals. Free to succeed or fail. No one, no matter what color, wants to become an indentured servant to the state. Which is what welfare is. You do their bidding they give you a check.

I'm not black, but I have ancestors who walked the trail of tears and ancestors who served 5 years indentured labor in order to pay their passage from Europe.

IT WAS WORTH IT!

For what its worth Wonkette is still running their post, although its been proven repeatedly to be a blatant lie.

I get that Wonkette is somewhat satirical, and I read a few lefty blogs for entertainment. I get a laugh out of it. But it seems there is no humor in blatant blood libel, at least not in my book.

It seems Wonkette would much rather this urban legend live well beyond the shelf life of an all too discredited blog post.
