It was one level of shameful the way Fox News and other conservative media outlets bent over backwards to protect the narrative that racism is over by claiming that the clearly racist attack on a Charleston church was instead an attack on Christianity. But Miami attorney AJ Delgado took denialism to another level by questioning not just the motives but the race of the perpetrator.
Well let's see what the subject looks like.
Blond hair, blue eyes, fair skin – sure looks like a member of the master race to me. Let's not leave out the part about how he self-identifies.
You can't blame this on pure stupidity. The right is heavily invested in the idea that we are a post-racial society and people like Delgado refuse to see or acknowledge any evidence to the contrary.
Just caught up on the latest Twitter witch hunt. Hang in there @AJDelgado13 - This too shall pass.— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) June 18, 2015
The Twitter storm was so intense even Michelle Malkin couldn't protect poor AJ who has since closed her Twitter account. Good riddance.
