The Post disgraces itself again II

by Karl Spain

How sad is this?

The Post wrote an editorial Sunday comparing Delegate William Howell with white supremacist Harry F. Byrd and the other legislators that don’t support Obamacare with the racists that were opposed to black desegregation in the schools during the 40’s and 50’s.

Apparently the Liberal loonies at the Post have completely lost their mind. This is a disgraceful editorial on the Post’s part and actually shames the desegregation movement itself.

What happened America?

This is just gross stupidity, and unfortunately liberals and their news organs repeat this line way too much. Of course every party has freaks (even the Democrats have some real horrible elected officials) but in general the Republican candidates aren’t racists, devils or even bad people for thinking Obamacare will be possibly harmful to our health system — it probably will hurt our health care system and might hurt the overall economy.

But the point isn’t whether that’s true or not, the point is we are not discussing these things in America as we’re supposed to do. Maybe the Post’s (and other newspapers like them) behavior is part of the reason. Will the Post call me a racist next?

Obamacare objections (and the opposing reasons for it) are arguments about economics, about providing more care for less money; it’s just not racism no matter how desperately the media and the Democratic Party (identical positions at the moment) want that to be true.

I loved the Post; this loss of maturity on the part of their editorial page is depressing.
