Skip to comments.Lib columnist Richard Cohen called racist over Zimmerman article
Posted on 07/16/2013 5:10:15 PM PDT by EveningStar
Columnist Richard Cohen is not a friend of conservatives (see past articles posted at FR). However, he did write an article in the WaPO, see Racism vs. reality (posted here today) that was pretty balanced.
Needless to say, the rest of the left is not pleased with their colleague. Yes, Richard Cohen is now a racist. Elspeth Reeve of The Atlantic and Tom Scocca of Gawker have chimed in. There have been others as well.
Meanwhile, WaPo is standing by Cohen for now.
Will the Post end up firing Cohen?
Will this experience wise Cohen up to his leftist brethren?
Not exactly the most ethical commentator...
Don't know/remember the other.
The article they’re referring to:
Racism vs. reality (Pretty fair & balanced, for him)
Meeting taste of own medicine.
In other words: Talk is cheap. Prepare to defend yourselves.
More proof, as if we needed it, that the left really isn’t concerned with facts. You are either with them or you’re against them. They will savagely turn on anyone who doesn’t agree with them. So much for tolerance and being accepting and diversity of thought. The hypocrisy of the left is repeatedly put on display for the whole world to see.
And all this time I thought he was a sexist ...
That link is in the second sentence of the first paragraph. :)
Yep. Let’s see if he learns anything.
Cohen has a history of showing occasional “independence” from the Borg. He usually gets away with it.
True. But he is treading on the legacy of Saint Skittles.
That’s true, but he’s been dodging bullets, making important friends and gathering up chits and favors for 40 years.
I sincerely believe that 50% or more of libs are closet racists, and the ones who always inject race into whatever issue is under consideration are the most likely suspects.
Who or what is an Elspeth Reeve?
Cohen is usually an ass, but once or twice a year he strays off-[liberal]point and makes sense.
And this is surpising why?
It’s not surprising at all, at least not to me. I’ve seen these race hustlers work for nearly a half century.
“Who or what is an Elspeth Reeve?”
I’m not quite sure, but I do know that prune juice helps me pass it.
Even the lib rag she worked for realized the fraud, and issued an apology.
She was in the news a few months back for some other reason.
Cohen used to be apretty fair minded ib. In recent yers he seemed to go off on moonbattery but it looks like now maybe he is returning to his sane roots.
