Sometimes wingnuts say things that just leave me scratching my head. Okay, so they do that every day. But this one really leaves me baffled. Ken Blackwell, former Ohio Secretary of State and now a Family Research Council, somehow manages to blame Dan Savage for that racist Oklahoma frat video.
On yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” FRC senior fellow Ken Blackwell connected the chant, which included references to lynching “ni****s,” to Dan Savage’s “coarse” language.
Blackwell told guest host Peter Sprigg, another FRC senior fellow, that it wasn’t a coincidence that the chant came “at a time when you have one of our nemeses, Dan Savage, who is now having his life story being portrayed on a new sitcom on ABC, you know, here’s a guy that’s responsible for the coarsening of civil discussion and conversation being celebrated, at a time when there are knuckleheads who are still spewing from their lips the sort of nonsense that we’ve heard from these fraternity members.”
Right. Because the problem with that video is not the racism, it’s the “coarse language.” And this was said by a black man, for crying out loud.
