Liberal Says Santa Shouldn’t Be a Racist White Guy

-By Warner Todd Huston

Liberal Aisha Harris of Slate thinks it’s time that Santa Klaus “got a make over.” She thinks we need to make Santa a black penguin instead of an old, fat, racist white guy.

Mz. Harris tells of her early childhood where her family had images of a black Santa in her African American home but seeing a black Santa at home and white ones everywhere else confused her.

“Seeing two different Santas was bewildering,” Harris says. “Eventually I asked my father what Santa really looked like. Was he brown, like us? Or was he really a white guy?”

“My father replied that Santa was every color. Whatever house he visited, jolly old St. Nicholas magically turned into the likeness of the family that lived there,” she wrote.

But her father’s gentle explanation wasn’t good enough for her.

Slate: Claims of Benghazi Cover Up is ‘Pure Fiction’

May 8, 2013 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Journalism, Liberals, Libya, Media, Media Bias, President, Progressives, Slate, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

As the Benghazi hearings begin anew on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, it is worth remembering that Dave Weigel of, the former Journolist member who delights in attempting to debunk conservative narratives, declared in December that Republican suspicions of a Benghazi cover-up by the Obama administration were “pure fiction.”

Weigel cited the report on the Benghazi debacle issued by the State Department’s Accountability Review Board to argue that conservatives and Republicans are barking up the wrong tree with questions on the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans during the attacks on September 11, 2012.

Certainly Weigel is right to note that the State Dept. report doesn’t exactly jibe with many of the reports made during the early hours and days after the attacks by “conservative media, especially,” as Weigel puts it. It would be a minor miracle if they had, after all. Rarely do early reports of any conflagration fit the final facts.

And since Weigel drew his premature conclusions, the Accountability Review Board has itself come under review, partly, according to Fox News, for apparently failing to interview key witnesses to the attack.

Slate Writer: Your Kids Not As Important As Obama’s

Slate Writer: Your Kids Not As Important As Obama’s

-By Warner Todd Huston

Slate’s Matt Yglesias has a Twitter message for all you parents out there. Your kids aren’t as important as Obama’s.

Yglesias recently Tweeted that very thing saying, “Sorry haters, a kidnapping of the First Kids would be a way bigger deal than a kidnapping of your kids.”

This is in response to the new NRA ad that calls the President and his gun-banning cohorts hypocrites and elitists for hiding behind armed guards and for having armed guards at their children’s schools even as they scoff at armed guards in your kid’s schools and while they endeavor to take your guns away from you.

“Are the president’s kids more important than yours?” the new NRA ad begins. “Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools?”

James Taranto Mentions Warner Todd Huston in Wall Street Journal

James Taranto Mentions Warner Todd Huston in Wall Street Journal

Neato. I got mentioned by James Taranto in The Wall Street Journal’s Best of the Web.

Yes, I am getting all fanboy-like. Sue me.


Meanwhile, blogger Warner Todd Huston notes a two-year-old Slate piece by Ron Rosenbaum, in which Rosenbaum argues that it’s racist to prefer white meat. No, Rosenbaum isn’t speaking figuratively; he actually detects a racial subtext to one’s preference in cuts of turkey:

White meat turkey has no taste. Its slabs of dry, fibrous material are more like cardboard conveyances, useful only for transporting flavorsome food like stuffing and gravy from plate to mouth. . . .

Why have we broken the chains of the whiteness that bound us to fatally tasteless white bread while still remaining imprisoned in the white-meat turkey ghetto? . . .
Do [people] still associate white meat with refinement? It was enough to make me wonder whether there could be a racial, if not racist, subtext here. Perhaps there is a clue in the shifting fate of the “other white meat”–pork. I’ll never forget the moment when I learned the antebellum racial origin of the phrase “living high on the hog.” . . .
It hails from the plantation days, when the white slave owners dined on choice pork chops cut from “high on the hog” while the slaves made do with the lower parts of the pig–the ham hocks, the pigs feet, the pork bellies, and the innards. White meat was high on the hog, but not higher on flavor than other (often darker) cuts. Indeed the “other white meat” now available most frequently in lean and tasteless pork chops and cutlets has little more taste than white meat turkey.

On the avian gustatory question, we’re with Rosenbaum. Not only do we vastly prefer dark meat to white, we had duck for Thanksgiving. But he’s wrong about pork. All pork contains myoglobin, the substance that distinguishes white meat from dark. Try cooking a pork tenderloin medium rare, as we do, and you’ll see it’s quite mouth-wateringly pink.

But wait. One thing that white meats–chicken and turkey breasts and wings, and many types of fish–have in common is that they’re all lean meats. “Lean” is a synonym for “skinny,” which, as we know from reading Slate, is a code word for “black.”

That suggests that Obama’s choice of “white turkey chili” was not a joke at Romney’s expense but an expression of his own identity–and that Ron Rosenbaum is the real racist.


Alas it is a mere mention but it is a mention nonetheless.

Slate: If You Like The White Turkey Meat, You Are A Racist

Slate: If You Like The White Turkey Meat, You Are A Racist

-By Warner Todd Huston

You can’t even eat turkey on Thanksgiving without being called a racist by our friends on the extreme left side of the aisle in America today, especially if you prefer the white meat over the dark.

Just before Thanksgiving last week, the liberal site Slate dredged up a 2010 piece claiming that the reason Americans love the white meat on a turkey is because we are all racists.

The rant written by Ron Rosenbaum is a great example of all that is wrong with the race baiting left in America these days. It is a sad example that literally everything under the sun is just another excuse for the far left to cry racism.

But before Rosenbaum goes into how turkey meat is racist, he prefaced his turkey talk with a digression on white bread, that one-time most favorite American sandwich bread. Rosenbaum says that white bread was once “regarded as the peak of social refinement by the new middle class.”

White bread fell from grace, Rosenbaum says, because “white bread” itself became an epithet — as in “that is so white bread” — and because nutritionists decided it was not a healthy food choice.

To Breitbart: Credit Where It’s Due?

To Breitbart: Credit Where It’s Due?

-By Warner Todd Huston

In an otherwise interesting piece on the way conservatives set the agenda for media coverage of the Democrat convention and its removal of God and Jerusalem from the Party platform, Slate committed the all too common error of lazy attribution.

In a Sept. 7 piece, Slate noted how conservatives had basically set the agenda for the coverage of the Democrat convention all day on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 4 and 5. This was when it was realized that the Democrats had eliminated both God and Jerusalem being the rightful capital of Israel from their platform.

The Slate piece rightfully notes that Breitbart’s Jeff Dunetz was a source for breaking the news. But Slate gets the site wrong in its attribution. Slate notes that Jeff posted his story at his YidWithALid blog [sic] blog — which is certainly true even though it is actually called YidWithLid blog, no “A” — but neglects that Jeff gave the scoop to Breitbart’s Big Government first.

Does Liberal Media Ever Identify Anyone as ‘Liberal’?

Does Liberal Media Ever Identify Anyone as ‘Liberal’?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Slate’s ‘Conservative Essayist’

Slate, a left-wing Internet-based magazine, has a piece about writer Joseph Epstein talking of his new book about the concept of gossip. In their write up of the book Slate characterizes him as a “conservative essayist and editor.” At some level this is fine because that is what he is. But here is my question: does anyone in the left-wing media ever call someone — say Chris Matthews or whomever — a “liberal essayist” or a liberal anything, for that matter? Or is “liberal” supposed to be considered normal and therefore is not necessary to have it mentioned? Do you ever see a review of a book by any lefty that says, “liberal columnist,” or “liberal writer” this or that?

Just wondering.

Seems to me to be just one small example of how left-wing the media is.

… and Why Liberals are Our Weak Spot

-By Warner Todd Huston

For the online, left-wing magazine Slate, William Saletan thinks he’s found something that will damage Osama bin Ladden’s reputation in the Islamic world. But what he thinks is such a big deal proves that he doesn’t understand radical Islam or even the Muslim world. Worse, it proves why liberals are our soft spot and why they could be the death of us.

Saletan is all excited over the fact that the U.S. found a large cache of pornography in bin Ladden’s living quarters. This, Saleton is happy to say, will undermine bin Ladden’s reputation as a strictly holy man. This hurts bin Ladden, says Saleton, because, “they’re more upset by porn and hiding behind women than by suicide bombing”

Saleton contends that in our fight against bin Ladden, we’ve found the right “argument” to level against our opponent.

Why is porn such a big idea?

Slate Says Detroit ‘Needs’ Anti-Christian, America-Slamming Statue

Slate Says Detroit ‘Needs’ Anti-Christian, America-Slamming Statue

-By Warner Todd Huston

For some strange reason the left-wing Internet site thinks that the City of Detroit needs a statue erected to an anti-Christian, anti-American pop icon. That’s right, Slate thinks that Detroit needs to diss Jesus, slam capitalism, and attack the United States of America as an evil, violent nation. Strange recommendation for a city that literally drove America’s capitalist success story, isn’t it?

Well that is precisely what Slate is suggesting in an entertainment feature about raising a Motor City statue to the Hollywood sci fi movie character Robocop. After all, the Robocop movie was a purposeful slam on the United States and Christianity, not some celebration of her genius. This is exactly what the film’s director has said numerous times. Strange that Slate wants to use a character that presents what it claims is bad about America as something worthy enough to which to build a memorial.

For Slate Patrick Cassels, a 20-something actor, “Internet enthusiast,” and entertainment writer, announced his support of the statue to the violence-soaked movie icon mostly because it is an attack on “Regonomics” and corporations. But, as if supporting a paean to Marxism isn’t grating enough for building a statue in an American city, he spends no time at all on the anti-Christian theme of the movie.
