The Race Detective drops the ball

Charles Johnson has been at the forefront of combating alleged actions of racism in politics. he has earned the nickname The Race Detective due to his obsessive nature in discovering racism. It stuns me that Charles throws his integrity to the side once again and gives a politician who uttered offensive racial language a pass.

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) — A Long Island county legislator is rejecting calls from her fellow Democrats to resign after making comments about a predominantly black neighborhood that critics say were racially derogatory.

Former state party Chairman Jay Jacobs, and Kevan Abrahams, the leader of the Democratic minority in the Nassau County Legislature, were among those attending a rally Monday calling for the resignation of first-term legislator Ellen Birnbaum, of Great Neck.

Critics took issue with comments Birnbaum made last month during a meeting to discuss a community center in the predominantly black neighborhood of New Cassel.

Newsday reported that former legislator Robert Troiano, also a Democrat, read an account of Birnbaum’s remarks that he said came from a “collective recollection” of those at the meeting.

“She said, ‘Why would anyone want to go there?’ Then … she added, ‘It’s a bad neighborhood,’ and ‘It’s a ghetto’ and . . . ‘It’s full of those black people,'” Troiano said.

He added: “She then … whispered, ‘Come on, who from the rest of the town is going to go there? After all, mostly black people live there.'”

“She later added, ‘All they want to do is play basketball.'”

It saddens me to see Charles put aside his normal opposition to racism because the perpetrator is a Democrat. He combs every speech by a Republican to discover a racist dog whistle, and in the case of this Nassau Country, NY Democrat, Charles is silent.

The Race Detective dropped the ball on an obviously racist statement.

    My experience has been that once you catch them off guard (think Donald Sterling) , most liberals at heart are bigoted.

    • Daedalus says:

      Charles really dropped the ball here.

    • Arachne says:

      Actually, when you examine their programs and motives – i.e., “you cannot survive/overcome poverty/get through school/hold a job/raise your children unless we pass laws and give handouts to you (owing to the fact that you’re incapable of doing it yourself) – they’re pretty racist right out front, too.

    He also isn’t talking about the VA scandal, lest we forget that liberals hate the military, despite how many times they robotically say, “I support our troops.”

  3. rightymouse says:

    More lack of self-awareness from the Irony Machine, Charles Effing Johnson. O_o

    • Octopus says:

      Irony isn’t dead, Fatass. Your blog is dead. Irony surrounds you, and you are blind to it.

  4. rightymouse says:

    Yeah. Four dead Americans are such a laff riot. Asshole.

  5. PeteP says:

    For some strange reason Charles never seems to notice when a Democrat makes racist remarks. Maybe he was just having an off day…..

  6. Octopus says:

    Even Jonny The Clown had a fit over the VA scandal:

    Gumshoe McRacist was told by Soros General to keep this one under his pannus. There it will stay.

    • ISpeakJive says:

      I have a friend who’s a VA doctor and as far as he can tell, there are no dead vets due to long wait times. They are looking at the cases and wait times have nothing to do with it.
      They do have a funky scheduling system that was imposed on them which they all think is stupid to address the long wait times they had a few years ago and it forces all follow up appointments to be made within a certain time period, so if a doctor wants to see a patient in 3 months, or 6 months, or a year later, there’s literally no way to do so, hence the 2nd set of books.
      Also, he says no one is getting bonuses for limiting visits or any of that. Oh, and the “whistleblowers” are crappy employees who were fired for cause. (Being lazy asses basically.)
      So I asked him how does the VA compare to private hospital systems for wait times and quality of care, and he said they compare very favorably.
      This whole thing kind of sucks.

    Speaking of a Dim who won’t go into black neighborhoods, Obomber just discovered today through televised news reports that he is actually President and thus is not responsible for the VA patient neglect everyone else knew about except him.

    Dad would have been 90 today. The “Future Sparty” on his lap is my brother’s son, who just graduated from U of M a proud Wolverine. Last year at this time, we just found out Dad was having trouble remembering things, which turned out to be a brain tumor that killed him June 22. Well, he had a great life, and did a lot of great things. RIP, Dad.

      • Bunk X says:

        Condolences Octo. We’re going through something similar with Poppa X. His VA benefits help a lot.

      • Octopus says:

        My Dad was a vet, too, but it was his General Motors medical coverage that covered everything. Those Greatest Generation guys had the greatest insurance plans, too…if they were lucky enough to work for one of the good companies. Sorry to hear about your Poppa. It sucks to see them go. It’s never easy.

      • Bunk X says:

        He’s not going yet, but it’s tough to watch him go down slow.

    • Minnow says:

      He looks like a good guy. You were lucky…… so was he. My Dad passed away after he fell and broke his hip in 2009 at a month shy of 92.

      I miss him regularly.

      RIP Dad.

      • Octopus says:

        Thanks, Minnow. I agree, we were lucky to have our Dad, me and my 8 sibs, and all the grandchildren. You had a good one, too, sounds like. There are some really crappy ones out there, so we were both lucky. 🙂

    Maybe a song about VA Death Panel-ghazi?

    Or even worse, a song about not wearing a bike helmet.

    More jokes, please. You’re killin’ me here, babe!

    Is Garage Boy blowing the whistle on Chunky’s favorite news-source? 😯

    Anti-Science meaning rational discussion of Lucrative Climate Boondoggle. 😆

  14. […] it seems Charles and his gang give passes to non-white Nazis, racist white Democrats and the racist Black Panthers. This inconstant stance by Charles on the race issue which he has […]
