Charles Blow advocates public flogging, screeches at hyperbole

posted at 11:38 am on April 4, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Maybe you haven’t heard of New York Times columnist Charles Blow until now.  There’s a good reason for that.  In the same week, Blow has screeched at the hyperbole of conservatives while advocating the public flogging of a Detroit executive.  Hypocrisy much?

Here’s Blow today shaking in his boots:

Lately I’ve been consuming as much conservative media as possible (interspersed with shots of Pepto-Bismol) to get a better sense of the mind and mood of the right. My read: They’re apocalyptic. They feel isolated, angry, betrayed and besieged. And some of their “leaders” seem to be trying to mold them into militias.

At first, it was entertaining — just harmless, hotheaded expostulation. Of course, there were the garbled facts, twisted logic and veiled hate speech. But what did I expect, fair and balanced? It was like walking through an ideological house of mirrors. The distortions can be mildly amusing at first, but if I stay too long it makes me sick.

But, it’s not all just harmless talk. For some, their disaffection has hardened into something more dark and dangerous. They’re talking about a revolution.

Some simply lace their unscrupulous screeds with loaded language about the fall of the Republic. We have to “rise up” and “take back our country.” Others have been much more explicit.

Aaaaaand here’s Blow on Tuesday:

Yesterday President Obama threw General Motors Chairman Rick Wagoner under the Buick, and forced Chrysler into a shotgun marriage with (F)ix (I)t (A)gain (T)ony. Apparently, GM and Chrysler didn’t do a good enough job on their homework assignments.

Something doesn’t feel right.

I’m not saying that the Despots of Detroit deserve a break (Wagoner should be flogged in the streets for the Hummer alone), but the use of the guillotine could be a tad more egalitarian.

According to Blow’s standards, he’s apparently vying to become the Robespierre of the nascent populist movement.

No, I don’t think that Blow meant that Wagoner should be dragged out of his home and beaten by angry mobs, but that’s what he wrote.  Neither do I think that the people quoted in Blow’s column today are suggesting that Americans form militias and take to the streets in armed rebellion.  They’re talking about political action through the electoral system, the same way the Left used “take our country back” during the Bush administration.

Maybe Blow needs to take a deep breath, and maybe the New York Times needs to find a columnist who can keep from beclowining himself in a single week.

Update: Rick Moran says Blow ought to get out more often.

The NYTimes and Blow truly blow.

Well, if Mr. Blow needs a case of Pepto to read Conservative blogs, Conservatives need a case of Jack Daniels just to get close to the likes of the Daily Kos, MSNBC, or anything produced by Hufington Post.

Of course, we all could get lobotomies and become just like Mr. Blow.

I read today that the NYT is considering closing the doors at the Boston Globe. One piece of the MSM at a time is O.K.; however, having every piece of this cancer to society, would probably stimulate the economy by itself. Just the funds created by sales of party goods alone, would stimulate the economy.

I’m not saying that the Despots of Detroit deserve a break (Wagoner should be flogged in the streets for the Hummer alone), but the use of the guillotine could be a tad more egalitarian.

The reason GM is trying to dump the Hummer is because of public perception, not based on the profits and lose of the division. They sold 14 million of them last year, down 2 million from the year before, but the problems hitting them now are Union contracts signed a couple of years ago. They only way they can sell this division now is if the company goes into bankruptcy so they can void this contracts with a new buyer.

What did Blowhard have to say about The Precedent trying to scare the sh!t out of America, talking about “catastrophe” and “irreversible” recession and general Armageddon coming if we didn’t pass the insane Porkulus, which was, itself, a legislative suicide note for this nation? What did Blowhard have to say about a budget that will bankrupt our nation (as the CBO admitted to)? What about when The Precedent tried to whip up a public frenzy against CEO’s, to deflect from his own incompetence and underhandedness?

Saltysam on April 4, 2009 at 12:15 PM

If you read his facebook page the first thing you find out is that Blow started as a graphics editor at NYT. He moved up from there. And as his bio on NYT states — “Charles M. Blow is The New York Times’s visual Op-Ed columist. His column appears in The Times every other Saturday.” He has a BA in mass communications.

So what we have here is a guy one step down from the society page editor pontificating about the poltical mood of the country. Oh I feel-better-now….

Dr. Dog on April 4, 2009 at 12:17 PM

Just received this from newsmax… They usually run a day or two behind the blogs, but they do get things right most of the time.

Dear Newsmax Reader:

Can you believe that Barack Obama suffered a terrible setback this week — but the media practically ignored it?

It’s no surprise. The major media simply are not revealing the truth to the American people about this man.

But we will.

This past Tuesday a special election took place in New York’s 20th Congressional District for the House seat that opened after the Democratic congresswoman was appointed to take Hillary Clinton’s place in the Senate.

As you know, New York is a LIBERAL state.

And this congressional district has been voting Democratic.

In fact, just five months ago, the Democratic congresswoman beat her Republican opponent by more than 23 points!

And Obama even beat McCain last November — by about 5 points!

When it looked like the liberal Democrat in the race, Scott Murphy, was going to win, there was press buzz that this was going to be a bellwether race showing how strong support was for Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi and their radical policies.

Even liberal Chris Matthews reported that the race would show what people really are thinking.

But guess what happened?

Conservative Republican Jim Tedisco and the Democrat essentially tied. The latest tally shows Tedisco leading by 12 votes.

With a reported 6,000 or so absentee ballots yet to be counted, the Republicans are confident that Jim Tedisco will be New York’s next congressman. (end)

Of coarse, the NYT reported this story in a sort of science fiction manner, somehow trying to convince their readership that this election result was a defeat for Republicans.

From the Urban Dictionary

Beclown:To make a complete idiot of oneself in public. To behave or speak in such a way, or to make a comment or express an opinion that is so profoundly witless, senseless and obtuse, that you have forever after defined yourself as a person of comical value only. Never to be taken seriously again. Of worth only as an object of ridicule and derision.

A wholly appropriate and suitable description of Mr. Blow.

They’re talking about a revolution.

And we better stop merely talking about it in a hurry. The longer we wait, the more irreversible damage these perverted Alinskyites and Ayersians will have inflicted on society.

Come to think of it, aren’t we the counterrevolutionists? Either way, we need to be more extreme than Alinsky and Ayers ever dreamed of being if we intend to defeat them.

To quote Goldwater: “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. Let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”

Wagoner should be flogged for the Hummer!? Talk about a Blow Job.

Once again the Left shows its Inner Coward: Absolutely hates contrary points of view and will strain mightily to demonize those it disagrees with. On the other hand, it reserves for itself any all methods, including violence, to deal with those whose actions stand against the prevailing left-wing ideology.

For the Left it’s all about ideology, not about principle. This is why Mr. Blow can say contradictory things from one day to the next. Rules and principles are subjective, meaning that they can be bent when it comes to the Left, but must be ruthlessly applied when it comes to the Right.

Maybe the Times IS in a Darfur-like eclipse.

EMD on April 4, 2009 at 1:08 PM

When I read the intro I thought I was reading quotes from some NYT blogger and I thought how hilarious it would be if the NYT gave him and Op-Ed

Low and behold they gave him an Op-Ed. The honor reserved for the big thinkers (of the NYT)

The guillotine comment in the auto column was pretty good too. A good defensive tactic. Maher just wants to run Rush out of town. Blow has more permanent fantasies.

I agree with Blow’s support of the death penalty but I prefer trial by jury even in these desperate times

No wonder Al Sharpton soothes Bloomberg’s spirit. Bloomberg may fear the guillotine which has re-emerged as a problem solver in his town

You’d think after the Jayson Blair fiasco that the Times might have learned a thing or two about making their hiring decisions based on actual merit (i.e. talent and ability) rather than . . . other factors. But I suppose if they were actually capable of learning from their mistakes, then they wouldn’t be liberals, would they?

All men recognize the right of revolution; that is, the right to refuse allegiance to, and to resist, the government, when its tyranny or its inefficiency are great and unendurable.

As the comedian Bill Maher pointed out, strong language can poison weak minds, as it did in the case of Timothy McVeigh. (We sometimes forget that not all dangerous men are trained by Al Qaeda.)–Blow

Blow’s trying his best with “strong language” emulating his icon, Pitchfork Obama, with Blow’s own permission for violence against those who would conserve the Constitution.

GM was ordered by federal mandates to retool and bear the heavy expense to produce the electric Volt, only now that the mission is accomplished being told by Obama to eat dirt. Blow matches Islamic furor for public floggings of victims for being victimized. Obama really is dragging America through Pinocchio’s experience in the City of Simple Simons. The only way out of the victims’ prison was to join forces with the thieving fascists.

WTF is Blow-ing “more egalitarian decapitation” than Obama dispenses?

Consider the source, NYT.
