CBSNews.com Turns Off Comments on Obama Stories: Racism Prevails in USA

Today CBSNews.com informed its staff via email that they should no longer enable comments on stories about presidential candidate Barack Obama. The reason for the new policy, according to the email, is that stories about Obama have been attracting too many racist comments. One site writes this pointed commentary:

Who said AmeriKKKa is ready for a President of Color or a Woman for President?
Not the troglodytes, knuckledraggers and poor, pitiful immature developmentally arrested whiney baby perpetual 'poor me' victim-mentality hypocritical republican WHITE MALE abusers, opressors and predators who have been complaining about their 'unfair treatment' for the past 50 years (since the Civil Rights & Women's Movements; how ironic is that? Conicidence—NOT).

Like Imus they refuse to grow up and insist that they are perpetual poor pitiful victims when in reality THEY CONTINUE TO BE THE MOST RACIST SEXIST HOMOPHOBIC VIOLENT OPPRESSIVE MEMBERS OF OUR CULTURE. (see the LATimes Op-ed in the prior blog entry.)

The right-wing and Republikkkan party continues to count on, exploit and perpetuate this hypocritcal, contradictory, disconnection from reality. But that's what oppressors and exploiters do: they twist and manipulate so that everything is self-serving and selfishly self-interested. There is no room for justice and equality in racism, sexism, patriarchy and especially not in developmentally arrested narcissism.

Couldn't have said it better myself. The CBS Public Eye story is here.
