Aww: Matt Yglesias bashes Rand Paul’s ‘white supremacist’ leanings, gets feelings hurt

Horrendous day? More like horrendous week. Man.

First, he suggested that Bobby Jindal might only be seen as intelligent because he’s Indian. He took a well-deserved beating for that one. A wise man would lay low for a while. But Matt just can’t help himself! This morning, the Slate writer shared his thoughts about Sen. Rand Paul speaking at Howard University earlier this yeaer:

Wait — he didn’t really say that, did he?

Oh yes he did:

For crying out loud. What is it with Yglesias and race? And does he honestly think he can get away with this kind of garbage?

Seriously. Yglesias is full of you-know-what, and Twitter users are making sure he knows it:

Oh, he’ll do you one better: he’ll whine about people picking on him by pointing out his idiocy.

Boohoo. Anyone have the world’s smallest violin handy?

Wah-wah-wah-waaaaaaaaaah.

Bless his heart.

    Hey Matt! You want to find out who is a racist? Look in the mirror.

    I think Matt just wants to compete with Amanda Bynes, I keep waiting for the “you’re ugly” tweet next.

    This is the “institutional racism” you are looking for, Liberals. Matty is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to racism in Mainstream media.

    I hope he grows up before he dies of old age.

    “For crying out loud. What is it with Yglesias and race? And does he honestly think he can get away with this kind of garbage?”

    Of course he does, and he’s right. This kind of crap is the basis of the ideology that is dominating American society.

  • Mister A

    Rand had an issue with Title II of the Civil Rights Act, which means that he must be a white supremacist. If anyone took issue with any part of the CRA, then they clearly have white supremacist leanings.

    Memo to Mr. Matt “I’m too liberal to breathe” Yglesias:

    When you throw down the gauntlet with such ludicrous and ass backwards statements. Then demand a duel.

    You are going to get cut. A lot!

    Matt, we will quit slagging you when you quit being a racist. Until then, slag on.

    Matt has it on good authority (he thinks it therefore it’s true) that Rand Paul takes great pleasure in emphasizing the Colored part of NAACP.

    I watched Rand Paul’s speech just now as well as the Q&A afterward, and I was almost going to write my take on what he said. I was almost going to write that in the broader context, Rand Paul’s references to Jim Crow laws concerned how Democrats were generally responsible for their creation and how Republican lawmakers were generally responsible for dismantling and countering them.

    Ergo, I almost wrote, facts are racist according to Yglesias.

    Then I considered writing that by bringing up the history of Jim Crow, Paul was pointing out that the Republican Party needs to do a better job of reminding everyone of those accomplishments and that the party’s views of civil rights back then are views that are shared by many within the Republican Party today.

    But I realized that no matter what anyone said, Matt Yglesias would still consider Rand Paul a white supremacist and himself a victim. So then I wondered why I would bother to comment.

    I’m still wondering.

    • AMSilver

      You bother to comment because there are people out there who are going to believe that if Yglesias isn’t challenged, he must be correct. And because there are people out there who will believe whoever had the last word must be right. And whoever sounded the most confident (regardless of facts) must be right. A mistake that conservatives make is thinking that sufficient numbers of people are swayed by the facts that we don’t need to hit back on each and every idiotic thing a leftist says.

    Matt is a Jew. I point this out because you’ll find that 9/10 times you see someone accusing white people of racism its a Jew. Go on. Check.

    • A. Edelstein

      Your stat is right, but it’s only because we Jews have that extra bit of intelligence to detect the 9/10 whites who are white supremacist. Forget about replying, let’s not go down the dirty road of anti-Semitism, Goyim.

    If Rand Paul is a white supremacist, then doesn’t this tweet from Yglesias agreeing with Senator Paul on an issue make him a racist by association?

    Matt is jealous of the balls Sen. Rand Paul has to be a white republican libertarian addressing a black crowd of people who will most likely not agree with him. I applaud the senator and everything he is doing to bring the minority vote back from the dark side. Rand Paul 2016!

    Get away with? Should he be punished or jailed?

  • FrancisMcManus

    “Rand Paul’s musings on Jim Crow are probably driven by his white supremacist leanings.”

    So did Rand Paul muse on Jim Crow?

    Yep.

    Were his musings driven by white supremacist leanings?

    I have no explicit evidence that Rand Paul has white supremacist leanings but I do know he thinks restaurants, private businesses that serve the public, SHOULD NOT be required by law TO SERVE BLACK PEOPLE.

    I truly wonder why Michelle Malkin doesn’t have an issue with that.

  • sittinglazily

    There are times that I actually like a bit of what Matt Yglesias says, but then I realize that he plays the racism card way too often. It’s as if he thinks that throwing out an accusation of racism means that he’s actually won the debate.
