As Twitchy reported, actress Tamera Mowry-Housley has been the recipient of vicious attacks due to her interracial marriage to Fox News journo Adam Housley. Most recently, she was despicably called a “white man’s whore.”
Larry Elder points out that she is, sadly, not alone.
Michelle Malkin pointed that out as well in a must-read column:
Let’s face it: Mowry’s sin, in the view of her feckless detractors, is not merely that she married outside her race. It’s also that she is so open about her love for a white man who — gasp! — works for reviled Fox News. Neither of them is political, but the mere association with Bad Things (Fox, conservatives, capitalism, the tea party, Christian activism, traditional values) is an invitation for unabashed hate.
The dirty open secret is that a certain category of public figures has been routinely mocked, savaged and reviled for being partners in interracial marriages or part of loving interracial families (for a refresher, see the video clip of MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry and friends cackling at the holiday photo of Mitt Romney holding his black adopted grandson in his lap).
Dead-on. Such repugnant hate and bigotry is rampant on the Left and is particularly aimed at conservatives. Mr. Elder notes some vile flashback-quotes:
Always remember, this is the Left. Got racism? They do.
