More left-wing racism (but it's really not racism *winkwinknudgenudge*)

Look at the altered photo here.

Nice. Real nice. Racist jerks.

Oh, but they're liberals, so it's okay for them to do that, especially when the black person targetted is a Republican. Yep. We should be more worried about "real" racists like Bill Bennett. Mm-hmm.

UPDATE: Steve Gilliard (the guy behind that blog) is also defending the picture on the basis that he is black, too. So flipping what? Racist is racist no matter who does it. That Gilliard is black makes his ["half-vast"] alteration of the picture to put blackface on Lt. Steele that much more disgusting. You'd think that being black he'd know better.

And, like I said, Gilliard is also defending the blackface job on the basis that Steele is a Republican. In fact, Gilliard considers "black Republicans" to be synonymous with "betrayer of black people." So, you know, that justifies whatever insults Gilliard wishes to hurl at Steele. A lot of liberals think that way, it seems.

UPDATE: Some good news:
Virginia's Democratic gubernatorial candidate pulled campaign ads from a bloggers' Web site Thursday because the blogger had derided a black Republican candidate in Maryland as "Sambo."

The campaign of Virginia Lt. Gov. Tim Kaine ordered the campaign ads pulled after it became aware of the Web site's attack against Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, who announced for the Senate earlier this week.

Over a story about the announcement, the blog ran a headline saying, "Simple Sambo wants to move to the big house." A photo of Steele was doctored to show him with white eyebrows and moustache and thick red lips. A caption under the photo said, "I's simple Sambo and I's running for the big house.' "

Of course, this resulted in a temper-tantrum from Gilliard. B-o-o-h-o-o.

If you'd like to thank Lt. Gov. Kaine and his internet director John Rohrbach for doing the right thing, email them at [email protected].
