The Racist Following of Popular Conservative Personalities

I’ve seen an overwhelming number of racist comments being posted about black people—primarily on conservative sites by self-professed conservatives—over the last couple of weeks in response to the protests and riots in Ferguson, MO.

Here are some examples of the kind of thoughts being shared:

“The peoples action shows how racist the black people are. You dont see spanish or white or Chinese doing this. That sums it up pretty clearly. Our ancessors already fought for these people . All the people who died for them. They make a good men ashame im sure.”

“Why is it that the ONLY race that loots and acts this way IS BLACKS???? WHAT ANIMALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“maybe, and I’m going out on a limb here, it’s because BLACKS HAVE NO RESPECT FOR LAWS!!!!!!!!”

“Farm animals…at age 8 you know right from wrong.”

“shoot them nigs down”

“Kill them till they disburse…”

Here are some jabs from David Horowitz and Ramsey Paul:

But a lot worse can be found if you search for it.

Are all of the people in that search, or those participating on hashtags like #ChimpOut, conservative? It’s not always easy to tell, but some do make it obvious.

A lot of conservatives—and social liberals alike—seem to have become so obsessed with attacking the other side that they no longer care about the wrongs happening on their own side. Nothing can be gained by vilifying a predominately civil group for the actions of a few. It would be in everyone’s best interests if we did more to quell the hostilities within our parties.

  1. One, I do not believe that these are a predominately civil group. There’s too much and too widespread violence for them to be predominately civil. Additionally, the lack of overt violence does not make a group civil

    Two, civil or not, their behavior differs only in the degree of feralness of behavior. All the Blacks involved in the “protests” are the same in that they’re angry racists who decided that the Whites were wrong.

    Three, whether you want to call it racist or not, this sort of behavior is a Black phenomenon. A cop kills a White, no matter the race of the cop, and there are no significant protests and no riots whatsoever, at least in America.

    • 1) Most black people don’t riot or loot, and most of the black people involved in these protests have not done any rioting or looting.

      2) Did you talk to any of them before drawing that conclusion? Do you care in the slightest about why they feel the way they do?

      3) Because there has been a long history of white cops killing innocent black people. This isn’t something you can easily “get over”, and people are still sensitive to it, particularly when it involves victims who are unarmed.

      • Translation – You will side with your own but expect me side against my own. Yep. There’s a long history of Blacks overtly being other than- and antithetical to normative American culture, which happens to be White, and then complaining when they’re treated as an enemy.

      • You didn’t answer either of my questions. And it’s telling that you seem to take no issue with the racist comments I quoted.

      • I don’t really need to talk to anyone when history, including my very local (Crown Heights) history, shows that rioting is endemic to Black populations in America. And no, once they become problematical, I don’t care in the slightest about why they feel the way they do, nor would I willingly then grant them anything that they want.

        As for my agreeing with the comments you quoted – Some of them, some of them not.
