How tiny is Kim du Toit's dick?
One of the most popular bloggers on the Right is Kim du Toit, a sick, vile "man" who calls Arabs "ragheads" and apparently gets off on pictures of scantily clad women holding guns. His post from yesterday might represent a new low. In its entirety:
that filthy liberal bitchSupreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:"The notion that it is improper to look beyond the borders of the United States in grappling with hard questions has a certain kinship to the view that the U.S. Constitution is a document essentially frozen in time as of the date of its ratification."Well, duh. The real question is: why would anyone want to reinterpret the U.S. Constitution, which has served us so well up to now, unless they wanted to undermine it?
rancid Commie cowhonorable Judge wouldnt even try to answer that question.
Is this acceptable discourse on the Right? Calling a Supreme Court Justice a "filthy liberal bitch" and a "rancid Commie cow"? What could possibly justify this kind of ugly rhetoric? Kim du Toit is obviously a pathetic, hateful little turd.
And I have to wonder how much effort it took on his part not to call Ginsberg a kike.
I would hope that decent conservatives out there would condemn this ... unfortunately, there are obviously a lot of not-so-decent conservatives, at least as evidenced by the comments section on Kim's blog.
Now, obviously, Kim isn't responsible for the things people post to his blog. But something tells me that he wouldn't find their comments objectionable in the least. One reader calls Ginsburg a "tumor"; another says that "There simply arent words in the English language (or any other, for that matter) to describe how much I fucking hate that bitch."
But even worse are those commenters who seem to be advocating violence toward Ginsberg. One reader jokes (at least, I presume it was a joke):
We can set up camps for Democrats, take ol Ginsburg out and shoot her in the back of the head and bill her family for the cost of the bullet.
And even more sickeningly:
She is so wrong her mom and her children should be punished.
This is obviously a reference to the recent murder of Judge Joan Lefkow's mother and husband. Obviously there are some on the Right who believe that violence against judges and their families is an acceptable way to express discontent with their decisions. And it's not just random lunatics posting on blogs; this sentiment can also be found in the United States Senate, as we saw recently, when John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, made the following remarks:
I don't know if there is a cause-and-effect connection but we have seen some recent episodes of courthouse violence in this country. Certainly nothing new, but we seem to have run through a spate of courthouse violence recently that's been on the news. And I wonder whether there may be some connection between the perception in some quarters on some occasions where judges are making political decisions yet are unaccountable to the public, that it builds up and builds up and builds up to the point where some people engage in -- engage in violence.
And here I thought it was us Lefties who were apologists for terrorism ...
Republicans: is this what your party stands for?
