It has been a while since we had one of these, but this one was just too perfect to pass up.
The below quote, from a certain anti-rights troll who has frequented Joe’s and Robb’s weblogs over the past few years by the name of “ubu52”, has been edited, but only slightly. This blockquote is not what she said, but I only changed three words and added a fourth – the core message of her comment remains identical, the only thing that changes is the target. Without further ado, I give you “ubu52”:
Weer’d — I never said I was against the rights of people to “peacefully interact with” blacks. You are trying to put words in my mouth I never said. Please stop doing that.
I am against blacks in urban places (particularly my urban place) and I hope “urban” will eventually be defined as “population of X per square mile.”
Again, the above quote is not exactly what she said, but the core message remains constant – if you desire to compare the above against her actual comment, it is available here.
But just imagine if she had said the above. Would that be appropriate? Would people see that as an acceptable sentiment? Would she be supported by various organizations around the country?
So why, then, is it considered appropriate to do an all-out frontal assault on another naturally-granted, Constitutionally-protected right, to the point where there is no shortage of national and local organizations to support this anti-rights crusade? Rights are rights, and until someone can logically prove to me how it is acceptable to discriminate against one right and not another, individuals like “ubu52” remain nothing more than spineless, hypocritical bigots (which is hardly surprising, given her history).
