The Libertarian biggot Willis Hart previously has used the racist term "minstrel" to refer to African American public figures he hates (SWTD #281). Now a new one. Instead of being "minstrels" they are "mildly retarded.
|Willis Hart: On the Fact that the Mildly Retarded (and, Yes, I Realize that They're Using a Different Term Now - SUE ME!!) Congresswoman, Maxine Waters (Who for Some Strange Reason Continues to Get a Microphone Placed In Front of Her), Appeared on MSNBC the Other Night and Essentially Accused the Trump Campaign of Colluding with the Russian Government and Really Didn't Endure All that Much Push-Back as the Result of it... I'll take, "Yet Another Example of 'Fake News' that You Can't Blame on Alex Jones, Breitbart, etc.", for a thousand, Alex (the other one). (1/18/2017 at 5:22pm).|
Willis Hart: Note to the Mildly Retarded and Racist Demagogue, Marc Lamont Hill... Hey dude, you don't need "institutional power" to violently attack somebody and the proof of that is that when you control for population, a black person is nearly 27 times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa. [blah, blah, blah] ...REALLY, want to help black folks, SHUT THE FUCK UP!! (1/24/2017 at 6:04pm).
"Yes, I realize that they're using a different term now", Willis sez, referring to him using the word "retarded" as opposed to "intellectually challenged". He knows it's offensive, but uses it anyway ("sue me" is his response). But what about the FACT that neither Maxine Waters nor Marc Lamont Hill are retarded AT ALL? Mildly or otherwise. In fact both of their bios prove that they are both accomplished and intelligent.
So the real reason why they are "mildly retarded" is that Willis disagrees with their political opinions. Maxine Waters said "if there was collusion with Russia, Trump committed impeachable offense"... OH, NO! How dare she question Trump's legitimacy? No wonder Willis is offended.
Marc Lamont Hill says "black people don't have the institutional power to be racist or to deploy racism" (a statement I agree with, btw. See SWTD #195) and Willis loses his shizzle because Barack Obama (a Black man) served as POTUS #44. Because one minority president out of 45 means racism is over. And this we know for a fact because the BLOTUS AKA #45 is the least racist White guy ever "elected" (and yes, I mean that sarcastically).
Oh, and Wills trots out the Black on White violence stats (as he has several times previously), why? WTF do these stats have to do with African Americans lacking institutional power? Absolutely nothing, that's what (he cites them because he is a racist).
Anyway, using the term "retarded" as an insult (regardless of whether or not the word "mildly" is placed before it) is offensive and bigoted. Offensive to (Willis') African American targets and to offensive to, and bigoted against, intellectually challenged persons. And there is the fact that both of the persons in question are NOT intellectually challenged! Although they are both Black. And I doubt Willis will ever refer to a White person as "mildly retarded". He might, but he has not so far.
I'm thinking "mildly retarded" is similar to "minstrel"... which is clearly a replacement for the n-word. Note that he had to throw in there HOW INCREDIBLY VIOLENT these Black animals are. We already knew he was a racist, now he proves he's also bigoted against intellectually challenged people.
Image: Intelligence by race in the Harster's view? And yes, he writes posts about how Asians are smarter... and he thinks that's proof he isn't racist. When Asians being smarter and Blacks dumber is the racist view... from a comment thread on StormFront (The Bell Curve & European IQ versus Asian IQ) "Asians as a group have a higher IQ than we do".
