Harassing conservatives is “the right thing to do,” according to a left-wing oped in The Washington Post. Liberals have been urging their supporters to be more aggressive targeting the right. This followed the media furor surrounding the harassment of DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders by liberal activists this past week.
Remember when liberals scoffed at the fact that Romney could win more than 60% of the white vote? Not only has Romney successfully tackled that hurdle, and liberals are apparently mad about it. Tom Scocca of Slate Magazine wrote on November 2 about the “tribal appeal” that Mitt Romney has with whites and why “white people think” he’ll be a better president. I’ll give you a hint: It’s R _ C I S M.
After proudly declaring his support for President Obama (and how Slate will traditionally list all its staffers' votes for the Democrats), Scocca insists they are not in a liberal bubble. He channels the insufferable and dismissive tone American liberalism has successfully monopolized over the past years. He claims “White men are supporting Mitt Romney to the exclusion of logic or common sense, in defiance of normal Americans.”
