Oh we love it when liberal tattletales get hoisted by their own petard. While the mainstream media is doing its rock-solid best to turn Media Matters’ Tucker Carlson “expose” into a story about the seedy underbelly of Fox News, this is actually a story about the rotten core of call-out culture and the hypocrisy of those who traffic in this, the lowest form of “news.”
Such a man is Media Matters president Angelo Carusone who, undoubtedly riding a high of enthusiasm after one of his writers “unearthed” audio from one of the most popular radio shows in the country, is now facing some serious scrutiny about some things he wrote in his blog a decade or so ago. With references to “trannies,” praise for former KKK bigwig Robert Byrd, and astounding jokes about “bags of Jewish gold,” Carusone might soon wish he had left Tucker Carlson’s history in the past.
From the Daily Caller:
Carusone’s now-defunct blog included degrading references to “trannies,” “jewry” and Bangladeshis.
Carusone posted a lengthy diatribe in November 2005 about a Bangladeshi man who was robbed by “a gang of transvestites,” as Carusone described it. Carusone was offended that the gang was described as “attractive” in an article.
“Did you notice the word attractive? What the fuck is that doing in there? Is the write[r] a tranny lover too? Or, perhaps he’s trying to justify how these trannies tricked this Bangladeshi in the first place? Look man, we don’t need to know whether or not they were attractive. The fucking guy was Bangladeshi,” Carusone wrote. “And while we’re out, what the hell was he doing with $7,300 worth of stuff. The guy’s Banladeshi! [sic]”
“Lighten up, japs,” Carusone wrote in another post, where he downplayed a Japanese coach’s sexual misconduct.
And in another post, Carusone said it was okay for him to make jokes about Jews and their money because his boyfriend was Jewish. He explained at another time that the only reason his boyfriend was conservative was because of “his bags of Jewish gold.”
Does this sound like a guy who needs to be out there policing the “hate speech” of others on the internet?
We really don’t expect the non-conservative media to pick up on any of these sins in Carusone’s past, and frankly, we don’t care whether they do or not. But maybe this can serve as an example to the Americans out there who aren’t necessarily conservative but who haven’t quite woken up to the tactics of the modern left yet. It is just witch hunt after witch hunt with these freaks – an elaborate act to tattle on conservatives while pretending they’ve never slurred anyone in their lives. It’s time these people were recognized for the scum that they are, and this expose of Carusone’s blogging history is a nice step towards pulling the mask off.
