JD and his xenophobia strike again!

A common trait of xenophobes is the lack of fact-checking when something seems to confirm their xenophobic beliefs.  Check out this post by JD Curtis.  (  This short post has gets everything wrong yet again.  But let's start here: hey JD, who's the future iman of Park51 (which JD calls the "Ground Zero Victory Hamasque")?

American Fascist.

"The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public. . ." 
– Former Vice President Henry A. Wallace, the New York Times, April 9, 1944

fas-cism n. A system of government that exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right, typically through the merging of state and business leadership,together with belligerent nationalism." (The American Heritage Dictionary 1983) 

This was the generally accepted definition of fascism before the right and people like JD started rewriting its history)

JD and Race

JD Curtis asks "Why is the Left so Obsessed with Race?"   *Cough* petitio principii, much?
Of course, JD can't prove the Left is obsessed with race so he pulls out some quotes from Right-wingers that simply assert that they are.  

"That the Left is obsessed with the topic of race is hardly in dispute."?  Oh how easy!  Instead of JD actually trying to provide evidence towards his assertions - JD  just assumes there is (almost) no question that the assertions are correct! 

JD quotes Ann Coulter who asks if conservative arguments are so racist or stupid "shouldn't their arguments be easy to deconstruct?"  Anyone who has ever seen conservatives "debate" science will know that stupid arguments take the most amount of time to deconstuct. 

But the most hilariously stupid part of JD's argument is this; an hispanic lady on the radio says she was glad that the Gabrielle Giffords shooter wasn't hispanic because she didn't want Right-wingers making it into a racial issue.  THIS is his evidence the left-wing is obsessed with race?  A lady, who we don't know the politics of, saying "phew!  I'm glad the right-wingers won't make this about race?"

The irony of all this is that JD's had a link to this on his sidebar.   Read it.  Read the comments.  I already know JD's response -  "B... b. b.. but that's just xenophobia not racism!"

JD Curtis. Wrong yet again.

A commenter named ATVLC pointed out that JD's claims that the mainstream media never commented on a questionably racist meal are false.
He says:
"If you type the phrase Martin Luther Waffles into Google News, you'll see that everyone from Fox News and to the Huffington Post and MSNBC reported it."

"things that you never hear about from the MSM", huh JD?
