... point out where there was ANY bigotry in my initial post.
Lemon's last word:I could have crafted the point of view much much better from the beginning....I seriously doubt that.I'll take my lumps, live to blog another day, and watch my lollyblogging.Thanks to all for a spirited defence of Norval and his work.Y'know, that's all I ever expect from Conservatives (or from anyone) so Lemon scores a point in my favour here. Now, I have no illusions that he won't write something equally inane/offensive tomorrow, but it is important to recognise this when it happens.Of course, if someone does this type of thing just for the hits, then fuck 'em.
It's more than you get from most, but like that NRO "clarification" and the pissy little mea culpa that went along with it, there's something unsatisfying about it given they've been nailed dead to rights.
Spirited defence of Norval and his work? Lemon still doesn't get it. It was a spirited denunciation of his racism in dismissing native art as "primitive and poor" and in bemoaning the fact the Star and CBC would even dare to treat the death of an aboriginal artist as front page news.
RT:"Unsatisfying" is as lightly as I would smack that down with.Brian was caught dead to rights being a disgusting racist, and now he's going to dismiss the whole thing as a misunderstanding, but a jolly good and spirited dialogue. And not a word of genuine and unambiguous apology to be seen.There's your right-wing "accountability" in action.
there's something unsatisfying about it given they've been nailed dead to rights.It's unsatisfying when you suspect you're just going to get the exact same thing sometime in the near future. In the case of the NRO, Kathryn-Jean Lopez should have lost her job long ago....but the wingnut welfare hasn't dried up yet, so...
It’s positively dispiriting when you consider that: a) this is the best you’re going to get; b) the nature of the error remains strangely elusive to the individual in question; and c) it’s going to happen all over again (times infinity). And yes, I could have used a word less mildly bland than “unsatisfying” but it didn’t seem worth the effort.
