Buzzfeed Is Whiter Than Elmers Glue …

Really really white. Pasty white. The whole gang of them.

Yet they spend a great deal of time writing snarky articles quoting un-named sources complaining that the RNC is white. Kind of like the Senate Dems.

Calling people racists is one thing the MFM is good at.

  2. Is Buzzfeed whiter than The New Republic, another progressive media outlet with a habit of calling Republicans racist?

  4. If you a white and ambivalent to the use of your backside for another male’s pleasure ….. you can’t be racist.

  9. Self-awareness is not a liberal strength. They use racism to call others racist; use sexism to call others sexist; use homophobia to call others homophobc and regularly use uncivil rhetoric to accuse others of using uncivil rhetoric. When will the public wake up and see these charlatans for what they are?

  10. I should point out here that the Elmer’s glue I use is yellow, not white.

  11. Yeah, they’re diverse alright. Thirteen guys all wearing the same style suit, pocket square, skinny tie and tie clip in the new, old style toward the top 1/3 of the tie. Very individualistic they are. Quite the independant thinkers I’m sure. It’s like they make these punks with a cookie cutter.

    I’m guessing that they were going for the Mad Men look, but, hey, they do have two white chicks in the photograph with them.

    Their secretaries, no doubt. :)

  13. Ah! I can’t see! Too much white!

  14. Like a herd of polar bears in a blizzard.

  15. How many universities do you think are represented in that photo? Three? Four? Maybe six?

  16. Well Coppins is from Brigham Young, their version of a token I guess;

  17. The obvious lack of even a semblance of age variance in that crew is a greater detriment to their ability to provide useful “journalism” I would say.

    (I agree with snarky Dana that the pic was planned, posed, and meant as a Mad Men spoof, tho.)

  18. And Kzynski went to St. John, but their mindset is all of the Borg.

  19. Reminds me of my hometown – over 97% white, anyone who moved there after birth is a “newcomer”, and full of self-congratulatory people who find themselves to be enlightened and superiour in race relations.

    People always thought I was kidding when I say that we imported our minorities, but they hadn’t heard of MetCo.

    Snark aside, it’s easy to condemn people for lousy race relations when you don’t actually have any race relations issues, since you spend your time with people of your own race.

  20. I don’t know, one guy looks like he could be kind of a swarthy bo-hunk or something.

    He is the IT department?

  22. “whiter than Elmer’s glue” – and with just as high a percentage of horse byproducts!

  23. They are obviously racist. Just look at them!
