OMG: NYT Says Jason Mattera is Talking Like a Black Guy

How desperate are they for the racism charge?

I saw this charge earlier, but had no idea what it was about. In the middle of the first clip here, Andrew Breitbart calls this NYT reporter "despicable" to her face.

Here's the article.

CPAC Speaker Bashes Obama, in Racial Tones

By KATE ZERNIKE

How can conservatives win the youth vote that overwhelmingly went for Barack Obama in 2008? At the Conservative Political Action Conference, apparently, some are betting on using racial stereotypes.

In a panel appealing to conservatives under 30, Jason Mattera, author of a forthcoming book called “Obama Zombies: How the Liberal Machine Brainwashed My Generation,” likened the gathering to “our Woodstock.”

“Except that unlike the last gathering, our women are beautiful, we speak in complete sentences and our notion of freedom doesn’t consist of snorting cocaine,” he said, “which is certainly one thing that separates us from Barack Obama.”

After the laughing died down, he added, “Actually, on the cocaine front, I do believe many people in America viewed Barack as they do drugs: it was a substance to experiment with.”

Dramatic pause for more laughter, and then, “But like most narcotics, the hangover afterward has them thinking, What the hell did I just do?”

It's not a racial stereotype that Barack Obama did cocaine. He did do cocaine. It was in his Bill Ayers' autobiography.

...

He then mocked what he described, with a Chris Rock voice, as “diversity,” including, he said, college classes on “cyber feminism” and “what it means to be a feminist new black man.”

Now, here's the clip. Go to 3:30. That's where he's supposed to do the "Chris Rock voice."

Did you hear it?

He didn't do a "voice." That's his voice, you moron. That's the way the guy talks, you fucking imbecile.

I've talked to him in person. Lady -- this is not a "Chris Rock voice." This is Jason Matter's actual voice. And, by the way, if he's doing a "voice," how is it he does the entire address in this voice?

It's odd that this woman identifies an accent (here, a Brooklyn accent) as "black."

Accents tend to sound (sorry) uneducated to the upper-crust. Funny that the enlightened NYT reporter hears what sounds to her like an uneducated inner-city accent and deems it "black."

So what have we learned? Jason Mattera's Brooklyn accent sounds "black" to Kate Zernicke, but Jason Mattera, you see, is the one indulging in racial stereotypes.

BTW: This is no bullshit. I have talked to Jason a fair amount. This is how the man talks.

I guess he talks like one of those darkies Kate Zernicke has seen on the subway sometimes.
