Blue Texan at Firedoglake Trashes Right-Bloggers for Criticizing Senate Majority Cyclops Robert C. Byrd

This is really rich.

Yesterday left-wing extremist Blue Texan at Firedoglake erupted in outrage at the right's relatively mild reaction to the death of former Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd. See, "
Conservatives Trash Robert Byrd While His Body is Still Warm." Check the link. For reminding folks of Senator Byrd's disgraced past as an Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan, Blue Texan writes, "As always, the right remains a paragon of class."

But back in January, Blue Texan attacked former GOP Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott as "chummy with racist hate groups." See, "
Senate Majority Leader was Affiliated with White Supremacist Group."

Words fail.

Screen caps below.

I can't speak for fellow right-bloggers, but my personal policy is to denounce racism when I see it. That's apparently not the way it works with
Blue Texan and Firedoglake. The hypocrisy is stunning of course. FDL is home to at least two of the biggest racist bigot bloggers on the web, Jane Hamsher (more here) and Tom Boggiani.

All in a day's work, I guess. Don't rest, friends. Expose these people for the enemies of truth and decency that they are.



Added: Cold Fury links with, "Death becomes them."

Given what the term "Blue" means in politics one might consider this a response that fits history. Were not a number of "Blue" Texans members of the Klan?

I guess mentioning Byrd's Cyclops past would be OK if he weren't dead? Maybe Blue Texan would have exercised some class if Lott had died?

Just flailing for a scrap of reason here...

Interesting that Andrew Sullivan is now a conservative again according to this site...

What hypocrisy? Racism, being a species of collectivism, has always been commensurable with the Left.

Anti-racism as a Leftist attribute is a myth concocted by Leftist intellectuals in the aftermath of WWII and the revelation of the camps, as damage control. Lies like that are hard to maintain, and this one's been crumbling for some time now.
