Liberals in media claim to be champions against racism and discrimination but apparently there are some groups which they feel comfortable singling out for criticism. Newsweek has published a bizarre article which openly attacks Irish Americans.
Take a look at this:
WHY ARE ALL THE CONSERVATIVE LOUDMOUTHS IRISH-AMERICAN?
Just as they used to play an outsize role in the Democratic Party’s apparatus, and in organized labor, putative Irishmen are now the face of the hard Right.
Once the biggest names, faces, and voices on television were Huntley and Brinkley, Cronkite, Murrow, even John Chancellor and Dan Rather, all sober, serious Americans—and all Protestants too.
Now we have angry loudmouths with names like O’Reilly, Hannity, Buchanan, and, lurking back there with his Cheshire smile, the dissolute but scary Bannon.
Yet no one has noticed this obvious fact, and the sheer lack of attention may be the most important thing about it. Why has the ascent of a bunch of people who in an earlier period might have been called Micks drawn no notice at all?…
At some point since 2000, I noticed that the right-wing chorus pontificating from screens in bars and shops was filled by men with names like Hannity, O’Reilly, and Buchanan. Nobody else seemed to care, so I let it go as one of those oddities that interested only me.
Then came Bannon’s ascension as Trump’s eminence grise , and it seemed impossible to ignore.
They actually used the word “Micks.” Can you even imagine Newsweek publishing something like this about anyone else? The outcry would be massive.
