Washington Post Goes Full Bigot

Bob Owens has put up a post entitled “Washington Post Goes Full Bigot”.  To which I say . . .

Yeah, pretty much.

What other conclusion is there in light of this egregious excerpt of the Washington Post editorial in question:

Could it be, as members of the Congressional Black Caucus are charging, that the signatories of the letter are targeting Ms. Rice because she is an African American woman? The signatories deny that, and we can’t know their hearts. What we do know is that more than 80 of the signatories are white males, and nearly half are from states of the former Confederacy. You’d think that before launching their broadside, members of Congress would have taken care not to propagate any falsehoods of their own.

And, to be clear, this is an editorial by the Washington Post editorial board, not a column from one of their several crackpot columnists.

To get the full effect of the sheer outrageousness of this editorial, turn it around.  Imagine an editorial criticizing President Obama and Susan Rice for their Benghazi statements and throw in the following: “We can’t know their hearts.  What we do know is that they are BLACK, very very BLACK.”

Yes, it would be absurdly bigoted . . . just like the Washington Post editorial.

And the Washington Post should be called out for it.  And to look at the bigger picture, the Left should be called out for their increasing bigotry again and again.  But I will have to leave that subject for another time.
