We already knew that George Allen was some weird southern hick stereotype thingy with racist tendencies
, but now we are finally getting confirmation that his racist tendencies are more, like, an entire lifestyle choice
WASHINGTON, Sept. 25 — Two acquaintances of Senator George Allen of Virginia said today that he had used racially inflammatory language in the 1970’s and 1980’s, compounding allegations of racial insensitivity that have dogged his re-election campaign since he referred to a young Indian-American as “macaca” a few weeks ago. Mr. Allen said he had never used the language attributed to him by the acquaintances.
Christopher Taylor, an anthropology professor at Alabama University in Birmingham, Ala., said that in the early 1980’s he heard Mr. Allen use an inflammatory epithet for African Americans. Mr. Taylor, who is white and was then a graduate student at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, said the term came up in a conversation about the turtles in a pond near Mr. Allen’s property. According to Mr. Taylor, Mr. Allen said that “around here” only the African Americans — whom he referred to by the epithet — “eat ‘em.”
It has been obvious to me, since that original article back in May, that George Allen was a racist - and perhaps slightly retarded -, but now that these recent “accidental realities” have been picked up by a lot of the media, there is no hiding it from the American people. We’ll see how long Allen can continue this poor liberal media victim act. My guess is another week.Past Posts: Funniest.Article.Ever.Other Bloggers: Talking Points Memo
