Dawg posted a video yesterday I wish I had never seen. No, not a clip from the latest slasher flick. Worse. Michael Coren, using the meme begun by disgraced ‘historian’ David Starkey that it’s ‘not racism, it’s culture’, went on a riot of his own on Fox News North with Brian Lilley gleefully cheering him on. His rampage laid waste to black people (“black thugs”), their history and their culture.
This open sewer of hate has been long coming. What started with the election of Obama has become an open wound. Breivik and the riots have taken away any last vestiges of holding back the ugly undercurrents of the pillars of conservatism. It’s become a free-for-all of hate and racism with no media to buffer – only to amplify.
Coren’s rant is nothing more than pure racism, stripped of any pretence of civility or reality. It has most likely broken Canadian broadcasting rules. Goddamn you Anders Breivik. What you have started is far greater than you anticipated. Fox News North has come by at just the ‘right’ time to capitalize on that hate and lack of self control in the form of license to people like Michael Coren to openly spew racist hate.
As hard as it is to view the video, make your way over to Dawg’s house and watch it. Then follow the links to report this act of blatant hate speech.
