The Locke Foundation debacle
Posted By Rob Schofield On March 22, 2012 @ 10:05 am In Uncategorized | Comments Disabled
The mainstream news media and blogs runneth over this morning  with stories about the amazingly stupid, offensive and racist post that appeared on the John Locke Foundation’s Charlotte blog for a while this week. Frankly, aside from noting that the “Meck Deck” has included previous instances of hateful speech  that unfortunately didn’t arouse much atttention, there doesn’t appear to be a whole lot more to say.
Let’s hope these people have learned an important lesson and that maybe, just maybe, a few people on the far right won’t be so perplexed the next time they advance a policy proposal (like, say mandatory photo ID for voting) that disproportionately impacts people of color and then get questioned about their motives.
