“...The said Constitution be never construed ...to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”

there goes the neighborhood

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).

  • Well done. Especially since she’s gotten so butthurt about her cause being compared to the klan, I was thinking the same thing.

    “I have no problem with black, I just don’t want them living in my neighborhood.”

    Also how much you wanna bet that if she moved to a rural area she’d have just as much problem with people exercising their rights as she does now in ‘Frisco?

  • Nice!

    I didn’t think of expressing it like that.

    Well done.

  • @Weer’d Beard – The similarities are… well, simply mind-boggling. And you would think, the supposedly intelligent woman she is (apart from being unable to identify certain kinds of sushi, and getting very cranky when people called her on it), that she would also be a student of history and understand how individuals who held blacks in such similar disdain were eventually handled appropriately. She is on the losing side. She might actually know it. And that might honestly explain her attitude.

    @Joe Huffman – Well, if it makes you feel any better, you are pretty much the inspiration for this entire category :).
