Massie's Double Standard
Topic: WorldNetDaily
A March 14 WorldNetDaily column by Mychal Massie demonstrates once again his blinders toward conservatives with a history or racism.

While Massie makes sure to tar Sen. Robert Byrd as a "cross burning former Klansman," he gives Strom Thurmond the soft touch, describing him only as a "100-year-old senator at his birthday party" about whom Sen. Trent Lott "made jocund statements." Massie doesn't say that those "jocund statements" implied that Lott supported Thurmond's segregationist 1948 presidential campaign.

Indeed, Massie has been an apologist for Thurmond -- as we've previously noted -- despite evidence that Thurmond has never renounced his segregationist views. Byrd, on the other hand, has repeatedly renounced his long-ago KKK involvement, a fact Massie fails to note.

As an added bonus, Massie smears filmmaker Spike Lee as a "diminutive, pigeon-toed, filmmaker (who could have been a somatologist's prize find in another time)."
