Geez, I thought that the two Texas dunces who protested the phrase "black holes" had won the grievance-mongering morons of the year award.
They've got competition.
Enter Myrlie Evers-Williams, NAACP official and widow of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers. She is decrying the New Yorker cartoon of the Obamas as a "lynching." Hey, never mind that it's the critics of Obama who are the subject of the cartoon's "lynching." Evers-Williams' cartoon comprehension score: F-. Some people to need to be kept away from the microphone.
Naturally, we looked around for about ten minutes and found a major conservative blogger advocating the vigilante killing of black crime suspects, i.e. lynching. It’s a smug, thoughtless blar-har of a post that will bring no criticism from the right — especially from Malkin, who is in her best element beating up on Medgar Evers’s 73-year-old widow. (Myrlie Evers-Williams, as it happens, retired from the NAACP board in 1998, and was speaking to a luncheon group.)
The situation is classic: A young black man is accused of molesting, or as the local FOX affiliate had it, of ‘ grabbing the butt,’ of a 12-year-old girl. When the girl’s father confronted him, he and seven (young, black) friends allegedly brutally beat the father.
