If you've been anywhere near the newsbox the last two days then you know about the story of the Big Black Mugger Blacky Fondler BlacketyBlackBlack Obama Supporter Who Assaulted a White Woman. Drudge said it was true, so it was reported all day long that this big darky had targetted the white woman because she was a McCain supporter. In addition to the beating, fondling, and political rage, the man carved a "B" into her cheek with a dull knife so she'd remember who she was supposed to vote for come election day.
For much of yesterday, the Pennsylvania McCain campgaign flogged the story. They were the ones that informed us that the "B" stood for Barack, in fact. Very helpful. In response to this story, Fox News Editor John Moody said this:
If Ms. Todd’s allegations are proven accurate, some voters may revisit their support for Senator Obama, not because they are racists (with due respect to Rep. John Murtha), but because they suddenly feel they do not know enough about the Democratic nominee.
If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.
Now, finally we come to the victim herself. Look at this picture and see if anything jumps out at you:
That's right, the "B" is backwards... like you would get if you did it in a mirror. Or perhaps the welfare loving darky is so uneducated by his ghetto schools he writes his B's backwards like Toys 'R Us. Of course, the girl has recanted the whole story. She made it all up.
That is some powerful stupid.
Finally, for those who think that racism is a thing of the past we can safely ignore, and moreover condemn people like Reverend Wright for not being able to move on, remember that within living memory such a craven lie of a story would have lead to a good old fasioned lynching of the nearest black guy. Sometimes the leaders of the lynchmob would even be prosecuted for it! ... but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one.
Update: She's now telling the police that she's "upset with the media for blowing this into a political firestorm." Hahaha!
