Weasel Zippers has the background
These are the two tweets from Politico’s very liberal Dylan Byers that got him branded a racist:
Via The Atlantic writer who claimed Melissa Harris Perry is “America’s foremost public intellectual.”
So, a Liberal suggests that Perry is not the foremost intellectual on the left, and here is why Ta-Nehisi Coates thinks that equals racism
Here is the machinery of racism—the privilege of being oblivious to questions, of never having to grapple with the everywhere; the right of false naming; the right to claim that the lakes, trees, and mountains of our world do not exist; the right to insult our intelligence with your ignorance. The machinery of racism requires no bigotry from Dylan Byers. It merely requires that Dylan Byers sit still.
Yes, he actually spewed out those incoherent, rambling sentences. No, they do not make any sense on any level. No one in their right mind would ever utter such babbling idiocies. Of course, I think it has been well established that Coates is NOT by any definition, anything but a whiny victim pimp who cannot order a grilled cheese sandwich without finding something RAAAAACIST about the experience! I can hear him now, “that G@@ Damn Cracker put my cheese toast on White Bread” But, he is called eloquent, and thoughtful to his fellow victicrats. His message seems to be everything is racist, and racism is everywhere, and if you disagree then you deny trees exist. Got it?
