WorldNetDaily may have had to back away from race-baiter extraordinare Colin Flaherty after his "black mob violence" obsession nearly cost it advertising revenue when Google declined to be associated with it, but it still regularly features him on the website. In June, for example, WND played up how YouTube (briefly) suspended Flaherty's video channel, and just last month WND quoted Flaherty opining about Louis Farrahkan.
So WND still has a hand in promoting Flaherty. Meanwhile, Flaherty himself has to resort to even fringier venues to vent his race-baiting rage, like American Thinker.
Which brings us to Flaherty's Nov. 10 American Thinker column on the racially charged situation at the University of Missouri, in which he makes things worse by saying, "A mediocre team of subliterate football players is now running the University of Missouri. Maybe no one will notice the difference."
Yep, he went there -- forwarding the apparent racial smear that if you're black and play football, you can't possibly be that bright.
Of course, one has to have mastered some level of literacy to play football for a major college in in the Southeastern Conference, considered among the most competitive in college football. Mizzou football is ranked third academically in the SEC, and 26 Mizzou football players landed on last fall's SEC Honor Roll.
Flaherty goes on to irrelevantly mock the Mizzou players as a "sub .500 football team," as if their support of the protesters would have more validity if the team had a winning record.
Finally, he twists things around to his favorite obsession:
The real story on and around the Mizzou campus is just the opposite of the fairy tale these Black Lives Matter wannabes would have us believe: Crime and violence in Columbia, Missouri is a big problem -- and it’s a black thing.
Just two weeks ago, a local TV station documented all the violence that exists just off campus -- with dozens of assaults and robberies in the space of just a few months in this small college town.
Some of the assaults were on a hiking and biking trail popular with students. Others episodes of violence were in the downtown area that surrounds the campus.
The reporter did not say what is easily found out in public records at the city police and campus police web sites: the predators are overwhelmingly black. The victims are not.
In the self-made video he claims douments this, he highlights a few random stories of violence near the MU campus, then compains a TV report on the incidents doesn't identify the alleged assilants as black and that MU students are "soft targets" for crimes by blacks. He also rants that "black victimization" is "the greatest lie of our generation."
This is a guy, after all, who thinks white people and dogs can take part in "black mob violence," so it's best not to take any of Flaherty's assertions on the subject at face value.
But Flaherty's branding of black football players who object to racism as "subliterate" gives away what his obsession is all about. Even WND should be able to see that.
