TPM & Washington Monthly Selective Outrage. Blondes vs Bodies

Mr. How­ell: Young man are you accus­ing a How­ell of cheat­ing? I’ll have you know I’m far too wealthy.

Spy Gilli­gan: To cheat?

Mr. How­ell: No, to be accused!

Gilligan’s Island Gilli­gan vs Gilli­gan 1966

Talk­ing Points memo is breath­lessly report­ing the fol­low­ing state­ment from Ann Coulter

The quote that caused them to embed this video and was this:

“On the gun crimes, we keep hear­ing how low they are in Europe, and oh, they’re so low, and they have no guns,” Coul­ter told Fox’s Sean Han­nity. “If you com­pare white pop­u­la­tions, we have the same mur­der rate as Belgium.”

Ed Kil­gore at Wash­ing­ton Monthly titles his post “Solu­tion is obvi­ous” snark­ing:

If I didn’t really like the Bel­gians, I’d sug­gest that she get her­self over there per­ma­nently right away. It might be a social­ist hell in her eyes, but it would be one where she’d not only be secure, but would not be allowed within 100 yards of a camera.

In the com­ments at the two sites I see many adjec­tives describ­ing what Ann said: “Hate­ful”, “Racist”, “Hor­ri­ble”, but there are only two adjec­tives that actu­ally mat­ter con­cern­ing her statements:

True or False

Oddly nei­ther TPM nor Wash­ing­ton Monthly both­ered to dis­pute her state­ment. Per­haps it is pre­sump­tions of me to believe so, but if pro­fes­sional jour­nal­ists from nation­ally known sites are going to snark over some­ones remarks one might think they would weigh in con­cern­ing: their verac­ity. Given their scorn for Coul­ter their fail­ure to do so speaks volumes.

Nev­er­the­less I’m still out­raged over Ann’s Com­ments, not because of what she said but because of the real­ity they rep­re­sent. Just this week a 13-​year-​old black teen on his way to choir prac­tice in Boston was shot. Nobody demand a march, nobody called for the con­fis­ca­tion of guns over it and no national news net­work out­side of Fox decided the story was news­wor­thy beyond the city. I didn’t see any story in Meme­o­ran­dum for TPM or Wash­ing­ton Monthly to com­ment on con­cern­ing it.

Rather than be upset about Coul­ter I can’t for­get this from afro­daddy:

In rela­tion to homi­cide the num­ber one killer of black men is other black men. It is a national tragedy that black-​on-​black crime ranks as the 4th lead­ing cause of death for black men. In the age group of 15 – 34 black-​on-​black crime is the #1 killer of black men.

because this truth out­rages me and it should out­rage you too!

I sub­mit and sug­gest until our friends at TPM & Wash­ing­ton Monthly find a way to blame the GOP for the stats in this chart from the CDC.
Disease-Homicide
they will con­tinue to be less out­raged by Black and His­panic moth­ers in tears over their dead chil­dren then Ann Coul­ter sug­gest­ing it is a problem.

After all why worry about a bunch of dead people’s whose par­ents will vote for you if you try to save them or no?

Mr. Howell: Young man are you accusing a Howell of cheating? I’ll have you know I’m far too wealthy.

Spy Gilligan: To cheat?

Mr. Howell: No, to be accused!

Gilligan’s Island Gilligan vs Gilligan 1966

Talking Points memo is breathlessly reporting the following statement from Ann Coulter

The quote that caused them to embed this video and was this:

“On the gun crimes, we keep hearing how low they are in Europe, and oh, they’re so low, and they have no guns,” Coulter told Fox’s Sean Hannity. “If you compare white populations, we have the same murder rate as Belgium.”

Ed Kilgore at Washington Monthly titles his post “Solution is obvious” snarking:

If I didn’t really like the Belgians, I’d suggest that she get herself over there permanently right away. It might be a socialist hell in her eyes, but it would be one where she’d not only be secure, but would not be allowed within 100 yards of a camera.

In the comments at the two sites I see many adjectives describing what Ann said: “Hateful“, “Racist”, “Horrible”, but there are only two adjectives that actually matter concerning her statements:

True or False

Oddly neither TPM nor Washington Monthly bothered to dispute her statement. Perhaps it is presumptions of me to believe so, but if professional journalists from nationally known sites are going to snark over someones remarks one might think they would weigh in concerning: their veracity. Given their scorn for Coulter their failure to do so speaks volumes.

Nevertheless I’m still outraged over Ann’s Comments, not because of what she said but because of the reality they represent.  Just this week a 13-year-old black teen on his way to choir practice in Boston was shot. Nobody demand a march, nobody called for the confiscation of guns over it and no national news network outside of Fox decided the story was newsworthy beyond the city.  I didn’t see any story in Memeorandum for TPM or Washington Monthly to comment on concerning it.

Rather than be upset about Coulter I can’t forget this from afrodaddy:

In relation to homicide the number one killer of black men is other black men. It is a national tragedy that black-on-black crime ranks as the 4th leading cause of death for black men. In the age group of 15 – 34 black-on-black crime is the #1 killer of black men.

because this truth outrages me and it should outrage you too!

I submit and suggest until our friends at TPM & Washington Monthly find a way to blame the GOP for the  stats in this chart from the CDC.
Disease-Homicide
they will continue to be less outraged by Black and Hispanic mothers in tears over their dead children then Ann Coulter suggesting it is a problem.

After all why worry about a bunch of dead people’s whose parents will vote for you if you try to save them or no?
