Washington Times Editor is Member of Racist Organization

Washington Times Assistant National Editor Robert Stacy McCain is a member of the League of the South, a neo-confederacy group that says it's not racist, but many others would disagree with that assertion. The Southern Law Poverty Center has added them to their list of hate groups, but you can judge for yourself just from these excerpts regarding Trent Lott from the founder/president of this organization:

The uproar surrounding the recent comments by Mississippi Senator (and former Ole Miss cheerleader) Trent Lott provides us an opportunity to examine the phenomenon known as Cultural Marxism (C.M.), more commonly called “Political Correctness” (P.C.).

How does one determine if he (he/she?) is a Cultural Marxist? Here are a few examples

1. First, in keeping with the topic of Senator (and former Ole Miss cheerleader) Lott’s praise for Strom Thurmond’s 1948 Dixiecrat Presidential bid, you believe that state-enforced segregation is “immoral” (to use President G. W. Bush’s term) while holding that state-enforced integration is OK.

14. And here we go, all you Confederate Southrons-Slavery is an institution ordained of God and regulated by His Word! It is not therefore “evil!”

Mr. McCain has plastered his racist ramblings all over the net - from his columns attacking Abraham Lincoln as a war criminal for his "assault on the Confederacy" to recently on freerepublic.com, McCain said he agreed with Gordon Baum, CEO of the CCC, when he says "God Bless Trent Lott.". The "freepers" (or McCain himself) have removed the posts, but not before they were captured by some savvy bloggers.

I've never viewed the Washington Times as a credible journalistic news outlet - David Brock writes in his latest book that when he worked there, he was shocked when he first discovered that no fact-checkers were ever used, and that instead of analyzing stories for accuracy, editors strived to inject a more hard line conservative slant into every article. Of course, I know how hypocritical many conservatives can be - it's OK because they're our guys, just like it's OK Bush 43 has loaded up his administration with crooks and felons, while screaming for Clinton to be axed because he was "immoral"...

Also, a good read on Mr. Robert Stacy McCain in this column by Michelangelo Signorile. Here's another quote from Hill, League of the South president:

"The day of Southern guilt is over–THE SOUTH WAS RIGHT–and let us not forget that salient fact. NO APOLOGIES FOR SLAVERY should be made. In both the Old and New Testaments slavery is sanctioned and regulated according to God’s word. Thus, when practiced in accord with Holy Scripture, it is NOT A SIN. Our ancestors were not evil men because they held slaves. This issue is our Achilles Heel, and the only way to deal with it is to confront our accusers boldly and without guilt. After all, what we are really upholding is GOD’S WORD. Let us fear Him, and we’ll fear no man."


Stacy's a good guy. Folk like you? Weenies.
