Lefty Blogger Venom

Some guy named Mithras got some blog-play for posting a nasty "Conservative Blogger Taxonomy," attacking a lot of the bigger conservative bloggers in personal terms.

I can't really cry foul, because, um, I've done that on occasion myself.

Pretty pissed off not to be included, though.

Bill from INDC has a roundup of those who bothered reacting, including from Dean Esmay.

He also wonders why the tolerant left can't seem to be capable of criticizing Michelle Malkin without resorting to attacks on her sex and, uhhh, her race.

Doesn't seem very tolerant.

He also notes that there is no female non-white blogger on the left of nearly the influence of Ms. Malkin. Perhaps that's what's driving them so batty about her.

They preach colorblindness, we actually practice it.

I've razzed Oliver Willis seven bazillion times on this blog, and never once did I allude to the fact that he's black. How on earth would such an attack advance any cause?

I don't really get it... I guess it's along the lines of why gay-friendly comedians are allowed to make gay jokes without any fallout. When someone knows you're on their side, you can admit, Okay, Kath Griffin makes a good point; we can be a little silly and bitchy sometimes, and what the hell is our deal with "It's Raining Men" anyhow?

I think many liberals similarly imagine they have carte blance on the race question.

But I'm not sure they have the bona fides of racial tolerance they presume they do. Their starting assumption -- that if you're a person of color any shade darker than pale you are expected to think in a certain way -- seems expressly racist to me.

Consider: What if I began knocking VonKreedon for being a race-traitor? Selling out the white race and such?

"Racial solidarity" morphs easily into "race loyalty," which seems to me to be the very definition of racism.

But to the left, it's only racist if whiteys do it.

If it weren't for double-standards, many on the left would have no standards at all.

Right Wing Nuthouse Returns Fire: I would have done this myself, but I'm too busy being a serious, respectable citizen journalist.
