LEONARD PITTS AND HATE
Last comment by JimmyMack 8 months, 4 weeks ago.

I am a regular reader of Leonard Pitts's columns in the Savannah Morning News. In yesterday's paper the letter to the editor section contained a letter which I will copy here.

Columnist Pitts wrong about Dr. Ben Carson

Dear Mr. Pitts I believe that you are a good man.

I also believe that you harbor a deep-seated hatred for the conservative man (white, black, or other).

Perhaps something happened to you when you were younger, and you never forgave the perpetrators of that event.

I can only surmise.

I have read your column for a long time.

This is the first time that I have been compelled to write to you.

You vilified Dr. Ben Carson in your Oct. 18 column.

To the best of my knowledge, Dr. Ben Carson speaks for himself and does not obey "commandments that are evidently chiseled on a stone tablet somewhere for all the extreme right to follow".

If you would just open your mind for a moment, you might grasp the concept of which Dr. Carson is speaking.

The Affordable Health Care Act is not (and never was) intended to make health care more affordable for most Americans.

It was designed to take control of most American's lives.

Therefore it is a form of slavery. So Dr. Carson was right.

But, not to worry, this slavery impacts most people (no matter what color they are).

It's so very sad to see good people like you being used by the old, rich, white Democrats to impose another kind of slavery on Americans.

This might have been better placed as a comment on Funkenteleky's blog where a discussion of Mr Pitts appears.

I did not know if the content might have been too long for a comment.

I read it yesterday and thought about it several times so this morning I decided to post it.

There's a 3000 word limit on blog posts; no limit (as far as I know) on the basic blog itself. I deal with the 3000 word limit by breaking my verbose pontifications into parts in separate posts.

For blog comments: Unless you want to count the words (which I don't recommend), just open your word processing program and create your large comment there. Then "cut-and-paste" post a portion and let the web site word counter tell you whether your comment is more than 3000 words. If it doesn't give the number and tell you there's too many words, you're okay. If you're over, just cut back what you post and put the remainder in subsequent comment(s).

As to Carson - I watched part of the 2009 dramatized biopic "Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story" which ran on the Lifetime Movie Network last night. Very inspiring stuff. From what the movie depicted, any black who tries to characterize Dr. Carson as an "uncle tom" is him/herself a racist.

I have stopped reading Mr. Pitts because 9 out of 10 times his columns have something to do with race. You would think that is the most pressing concern in the country, not the economy in a shambles, people out of work, worrying about taking care of their families, and losing their homes.

@Tot: In your opinion, is Ann Coulter a hater? Is Rush Limbaugh a hater? Is Sean Hannity a hater? Is Glenn Beck a hater?

Just your opinion is all I am asking as I am in a self-imposed timeout and am limiting my comments here.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Oct 23, 2013 at 14:42 PM

@TOT: Let me re-phrase the question. What I should is: How do you view these people?

Thank you.

timeontarget commented on Wednesday, Oct 23, 2013 at 16:29 PM

"How do you view these people?"

I simply don't know because I am not familiar with any of them.

I do not listen to talk radio.

I do not watch television.

Sorry but that is how it is in my world.

timeontarget commented on Friday, Oct 25, 2013 at 06:49 AM

I should have said I do not watch newscast on television.

I gave up on that about 15 years ago.

Our print media is also slowly dying.

The fourth estate has historically been the great protector of truth for the people.

JimmyMack commented on Friday, Oct 25, 2013 at 08:43 AM

Well we both read the Savannah Morning News and the Coastal Courier I believe. I also read the Atlanta Journal Constitution as you may well also do.

As far as books go, have you ever read Animal Farm, or 1984 by George Orwell, or Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand? I guess what I am asking is: are you familiar with any books with a political theme?

Thanks.

timeontarget commented on Saturday, Oct 26, 2013 at 07:44 AM

I have never read any of the books you refer to above.

Jimmy, has Ann Colter, Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity ever said anything against anyone like Pitt’s did against the white couple?

Funkentelecky commented on Friday, Oct 18, 2013 at 20:27 PM

Leonard Pitts lacks common sense in regards to race and individual freedom for all Americans. Jimmy, when you find a black person that doesn’t even care that a white couple has been murdered and raped and shows no empathy whatsoever; he or she is a racist and hates white people. Pitts doesn’t tell it like it is he hates white people, and feels an entitlement that it’s ok for blacks to do anything they want to whites because whites enslaved us. “The ends justify the means.”

BTW, don’t cut yourself short because I feel that you and Chief should be in the dialogue too because you have experiences and pertinent information to add to the subject as well. Us brothers don’t own the subject, we just may have a little more experience in regards to dealing with each other (blacks).

Good question Funk. I honestly cannot say that I have seen anything as pointedly directed at two individuals as it seems Mr. Pitts did.

However, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity have nurtured a culture of animosity towards an entire group of people that are of the Liberal persuasion. Ms. Coulter has called ALL Liberals TREASONOUS; traitors to their Country. She wrote a book about Liberals with Treasonous as the title, among many others of like theme. Need I really comment to the climate of virulence towards Liberals that Mr. Limbaugh screams to the populace into a Nationally syndicated Radio microphone day in, day out? Need I lend words to the hate Sean Hannity promotes thru his books and Talk Show, one book in particular authored by Mr. Hannity: DELIVER US FROM EVIL: TERRORISM, DESPOTISM AND LIBERALISM?

Mr. Pitts made a mistake and was wrong, in my view, to have made that particular statement. But the repetitious nature of formatting various conduits for expression of denigration and animosity towards an entire GROUP of people, not just two, is as much a vile violation of empathy and understanding towards other humans as Mr. Pitts singular comment. In fact, it is much worse and more reprehensible. What these three individuals do is lend some sort of perverted legitimacy to saying things like Liberals are responsible for such acts as the killing of those babies at Sandy Hook. These three individuals (tho there are many more of like mind) purposely foster an ongoing climate of 'acceptance' and false righteousness to demonize Liberals.

I seem to recall one particular person in history that created the same sort of public acceptance of hatred of other humans, except his target were those of the Jewish persuasion.

Great explanation Jimmy, I agree all or even most liberals are not bad, evil or want to destroy the country. Thanks for sharing our inner most thoughts; very informative indeed.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Oct 28, 2013 at 19:48 PM

Thank YOU Funk! You have a knack for asking all the right (no pun intended) questions it seems, here on these blogs. Your clear articulation of the Conservative view has helped a Liberal such as me to think a little more intently about all that goes on here regarding various subjects.

Before this is all over...It will be ME buying the lunches all around!
