The vile and repugnant Jason Whitlock just keeps the hits on coming. His ignorant screed denigrating our civil rights following an incident where a Kansas City Chiefs NFL player slayed his wife and then went to the Chief’s training area to thank his coach before doing society a favor and offing himself was offensive enough to America’s one hundred plus million gun owners.
Jason’s Whitlock’s inner racist bigotry was out for all to see in subsequent remarks he made, equating the National Rifle Association and America’s gun owners with the Ku Klux Klan.
Here is what the knuckle-dragging racist bigot had to say:
“I believe the NRA is the new KKK. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously don’t have our best interests[at heart]”
It’s time FoxSports dumped this neanderthal mouth-breather and sent him on his way.
So, he was a star high school football player who went on to play some football in college blocking for someone who later played in the NFL. Big deal.
Today, he’s an angry has-been – a black man with a small mind and a serious chip on his shoulder, utterly incapable of internalizing personal responsibility for one’s actions or those of the members of “his community”.
He writes of the murderous thug KC Chiefs player:
A 25-year-old kid gunned down his 22-year-old girlfriend in front of his mother and three-month-old child, and all he could think to do in the immediate aftermath is rush to thank his football coach and football employer.
Whitlock calls this 25-year-old professional football player a kid, as though he’s mentally infirm or immature. Perhaps Whitlock thinks we’re supposed to think he’s a mental midget or worse simply because of the color of his skin?
Ann Althouse excoriates this simple-minded washed-up high school football star here about this very fact.
…Belcher was a murderer, responsible for what he did. To say otherwise is infantalizing, dehumanizing. There’s not some outside force “wickedness” — unless you believe in The Devil! — that possesses a man and “explodes.” How do you know that one day, that might not happen to you? In Whitlock’s view, we’re blind and complacent if we don’t see that potential. We might just go nuts one day and if there are any weapons around, that random explosion will lead to death…
We judge people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin, and the NFL player who committed this atrocity was utterly devoid of character. He was a selfish, savage beast in the end, not a 25-year-old “kid” and certainly not a civilized human being.
He was a scumbag of the highest order, as evidenced by not only what he did to the mother of his child, but the fact that he went to thank his football coach before offing himself. This was after he spent the previous night boozing it up with another woman, passing out in his fancy car in her parking lot, then shacking up with her for the rest of the night after cops rousted him from his car. There’s also a report from a neighbor that he was a persistent, psychotic bully in his younger years as well.
Good riddance to him.
That’s right. GOOD RIDDANCE.
But back to Jason Whitlock. One of our readers commented that he thought you needed a G.E.D. to be a sports commentator. We laughed out loud at that, but in reality, not only is Whitlock ignorant, but now we see his racist bigotry as well and it’s simply outrageous that FoxSports would continue to employ this ignorant, man-child and his racial bigotry.
He’s been called on the carpet before, for his comments about Jeremy Lin, the NY Knicks basketball star, crudely suggesting a lucky woman in New York City would feel “a couple of inches of pain” the night Lin scored a career high 38-points, perpetuating the insipid bigotry about Asian men’s penises. And then there’s a long list of incidences where his racial bigotry peeks out time and time again.
Perhaps that’s why he bounces around from job to job a lot in his short career as a has-been high-school football star.
He’s seen racism in how people part their hair or pick their nose. And now he claims America’s gun owners arm America’s black youths, and load the black community with drugs and criminal violence.
What an ignorant bastard.
He has no clue of the role of the NRA in helping blacks against the KKK and racism of the Democratic Party.
Jim Hoft at the Gateway Pundit wrote it well:
The NRA Was There to Help Blacks Defend Themselves From KKK Democrats, Not the Other Way Around
On September 28, 1868, a mob of Democrats massacred nearly 300 African-American Republicans in Opelousas, Louisiana. The savagery began when racist Democrats attacked a newspaper editor, a white Republican and schoolteacher for ex-slaves. Several African-Americans rushed to the assistance of their friend, and in response, Democrats went on a “Negro hunt,” killing every African-American (all of whom were Republicans) in the area they could find. (Via Grand Old Partisan)
Which brings us to today…
Asshat Jason Whitlock, the Kansas City columnist whose article on Jovan Belcher‘s murder-suicide inspired an anti-gun rant by NBC’s Bob Costas, now says that the pro-Second Amendment National Rifle Association is “the new KKK,” Newsbusters’ Tim Graham reported Monday.
Obviously, Whitlock is as ignorant as he is offensive.
The NRA actually helped blacks defend themselves from violent KKK Democrats in the south, not the other way around.
