Mychal Massie just can't help himself, it appears.
For the third time in four weeks in his WorldNetDaily column, Massie calls liberal commentator Jehmu Greene a "Negress"-- or, more to the point, a "black racist, socialist, negress." As we've documented "Negress" is an archaic term dating from the era of segregation , and Massie is clearly using it for purposes of denigration. (Besides, "Negress" is redundant when you've already identified someone as black, as Massie did.)
In his increasing desperate attempt to generate any kind of meaningful outrage over Greene calling Tucker Carlson a "bow-tying white boy" (perhaps because Carlson is indeed a white male whose one-time shtick was wearing bow ties), Massie grumbles:
If a white male Fox News Channel contributor, in the course of a rather animated debate with a Muslim, called the Muslim a “towel-headed camel jockey” how long do you think that Fox contributor would remain with Fox?
How about a white female using that term? Ann Coulter did in her 2007 book" If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans." And she defended her insult on, yes, Fox News.
But Massie is not done making futile analogies:
Think back not that long ago. Trent Lott, in a moment of jocularity, made what was meant to be an endearing statement of collegial respect for Sen. Strom Thurmond, and he was promptly excoriated. Lott was assailed to the point that he was ultimately forced to resign from his political career.
Lott's tacit endorsement of Thurmond's segregationist 1948 presidential campaign was a lot of things, but "an endearing statement of collegial respect" was not one of them.
