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 [1] 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 [2] 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.
