Paging Jeremiah Wright...

"Here's the biggest thing we 'racists' notice."

"Every single immigrant group that ever came to America -- including the Chinese who came as railroad slaves -- has risen out of poverty and want to achieve prosperity and respect."

"The Irish, the Italians, the Polish, the Jews, the Koreans, the Vietnamese."

"Every group but you."

"And you're the only group we fought a war to free..."

To the inevitable fuzzy-bunny shitstorm.
UPDATE 3/23. Well, well, well. First things first. Glenn Reynolds did not link to this post, so leave him alone. Second, all you Nazis and white supremacists can go straight to hell; you can't read any better than Glenn Greenwald. Third, Althouse was right (I won't sully her rep by linking her) when she speculated that I'm too old to care what people think of me.

As for the rest of the pious bloggerites of the left and right who have been so quick to label this a "racist rant," my only retort to you is laughter.

You are determined to build for yourselves a nonsense world made out of delusions that will continually frustrate and defeat you because you are incapable of being honest about matters which are truly complex and in which no one on any of the innumerable "sides" is free of guilt, wrongdoing, and responsibility.

I pity you. Because you're the ones who will have to live with the consequences of your own deep personal dishonesty, your transparent projections, and your fearful sycophancy. Not me. So leave me out of it too, and see if you can have that discussion you think you want among yourselves.

Good luck with that.
