|Damn those evil, scary, white American men!|
Politically Correct people hate their boogeyman, the white, heterosexual, Christian, English speaking, capitalist WASP American male.
This boogeyman is responsible for all the evil in the world.
He is responsible for evil retrospectively. Right now ISIS Sunni are murdering Shia in Iraq. In the mind of the Politically Correct, the white, Christian, American man is responsible for this, even though this killing goes back 1400 years, to power struggles during the foundation of Islam.
It's all George Bush's fault.
Because this boogeyman is so evil, and hating him is so necessary, PC people ritualistically stir up hated against him on a regular basis.
Yesterday, influential Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank did his religious duty and fomented hatred against the evil white man. Except in this case the evil white man was a tanned, Lebanese-born woman, Brigitte Gabriel.
The Heritage Foundation held a panel on Benghazi. An audience member, Saba Ahmed, a woman with an interesting past, asked a question. Gabriel responded.
Dana Milbank reported all this in the Washington Post as a lynching. Gabriel ganged up on, hated, bullied, and almost lynched the Muslim woman.
One problem. None of this ever happened. Dana Milbank lied in one of the most influential newspapers in the world.
How do we know?
Youtube. Someone filmed the event and posted the film.
And Google. People googled Saba Ahmed.
Everyone there was perfectly polite to Ahmed.
This relatively small event matters.
PC thought police monitor what we can and cannot say. They ruin careers and demonize innocents on the basis of PC ideology, an ideology immune to facts.
"Truth is that which serves the party."
Even when there is a camera present.
