George Allen is a jackass

By Michael J.W. Stickings

(Note: Allen is also a buffoon.)

It's just getting worse and worse for Senator George Allen, isn't it? On Monday, Ryan Lizza reported at The New Republic that, according to multiple sources, Allen "repeatedly used the word 'nigger' as a college student at the University of Virginia in the 1970s". And now The New York Times is reporting that yet another "acquaintance" has come forward with a similar accusation.

Allen, his ex-wife, his campaign manager, and "former teammates" rounded up by the campaign deny that Allen ever used the term, but the evidence is mounting. And some of that evidence, like Allen's notorious "macaca" slur, is on video, well beyond the reach of his denials.

No one is to blame for any of this but Allen himself.

Buffoon. Jackass. Goon. Thug. Idiot. Call him what you want, but the evidence is clear: George Allen is a racist.

  • Indeed, however a discussion of hypocrisy is in order: George Allen purports that he legislates, and acts in accordance with “God’s will,” without stipulation. Thus, as Allen’s several moments of racial insensitivity are exposed, likewise, his hypocrisy is also exposed, and must be commented upon. Those who compose the “Christian Right” may be classified as stereotypically racially insensitive, however in regards to Allan, we have evidence; substantiated proof that he is indeed a racist, and a hypocrite. Exposing his hypocrisy is important, a method to illuminate certain flaws to the “moral armor” he professes to employ against those on the “left.”
