Meghan McCain: Literacy is racist

According to little green Johnson (formerly a progressive right-winger and currently a blogger with a progressive case of untreatable and acute liberal insanity), Meghan McCain, a classical brain-dead left-wing bimbo (and also a daughter of senator McCain - need I say more?) claimed that Tom Tancredo was a racist. What exactly did he do to deserve such a harsh treatment? In his recent speech Tancredo proposed a literacy test for all Americans as a condition for voting. He also claimed that illiterate people were the ones that put Barack Hussein Obama in charge of this country.

In her remarks, the plus-sized model claimed that literacy tests were innately racist, and, making fun of Tancredo's age, said that revolution was always launched by young people. The art's history major also claimed that Blacks could not vote in the 1950ies because of the literacy tests of exactly same nature that Tancredo proposed. And, as you may imagine, the little green football agreed with her.

At this point I am torn between leaving this stupidity as it is without commenting on it - or spend time and actually rip it into little pieces. After some hesitation - I decided to rip it into little pieces - since I am feeling I owe it to those very few that clicked on my link and decided to read my posts. Here it goes.

Firstly, to suggest that a literacy test, executed in same way for all people who wish to vote, is innately racist is, well, racist. Can Meghan explain which races have innate illiteracy? Does Meghan believe that some races inherently cannot learn how to read and write? Clearly, her claims indeed make it obvious that she does believe so.

Secondly, the literacy tests designed to keep Blacks from voting were not color blind. Wikipedia states that "... the literacy test was applied in a patently unfair manner, as it was used to disfranchise many literate blacks while allowing many illiterate whites to vote." In other words, Meghan either does not know anything about the Southern literacy tests, or she is lying. In short, she is either illiterate (innately or not - who knows?) or evil - and quite possibly both.

The point she raised about the age of the revolutionaries is also quite peculiar. For example, George Washington became the Commander in Chief of the US army at the age of 43. He became the US president when he was 56. In short, he was hardly a teenager - particularly if we take into account that people live and stay active much longer today. Vladimir Lenin was 47 years old when he commandeered the communist takeover of the Tsarist Empire. Mao Zedong conquered China at the gentle age of 55. Abraham Lincoln took over presidency when he was 52.

All in all, what Meghan McCain demonstrates is that while genius may be lost from one generation to another, the idiocy is not only saved but greatly multiplied. As for the little green football - I refuse to make fun of his medical condition. It would be too politically incorrect. I can only hope that some day he gets better.

She really needs a vocation.

However, she was partly right, revolutions start with easily malleable young people, who have been manipulated by the old people pulling the strings.

Very funny. I think I will use this joke some day.

Hey Hyph...

Glad you stopped by my place and left your comment! I enjoyed this post and I am sure I will find your writing interesting.

I read through a few of your previous posts and found your perspective intriguing. I'm sure I will enjoy visiting often, and hope to send some readers your way!

And to kmbr - love the 'vocation' line! And you're right on.. this is where we are in today's Progressive America, the "educated" indoctrinating our youth.

Thanks a lot for stopping. I guess we will be visiting each other quite often. I've also added your blog to my links. Lets share the readers and prosper \/

I guess you are too ignorant and/or racist yourself to notice similiar traits in Tancredo. Literacy tests have a long history here in America of denying blacks the right to vote. If LGF and Megan are far left to a Russin creep like you, then you must be to the right of Ivan the Terrible. Since I found this link on Pajama Dreck, I am not surprised at your pathetic trash.

I decided to make your letter popular, and I responded with a post devoted to your drunken rumblings.

You are famous, kid!

"Firstly, to suggest that a literacy test, executed in same way for all people who wish to vote, is innately racist is, well, racist."

You are assuming that blacks and whites share an equal social footing which, although desirable, clearly isn't the case. Any 'universal' literacy test runs the risk of assuming that people of different cultural backgrounds use language in the same way, perpetuating biases which DO exist within the education system. The tests cannot possibly be colour-blind. It is a fact that white (or middle-class) students often find academic writing easier, thanks to the type of literacy practices they experience outside school - it's called Essayist Literacy. Whether or not McCain is "mentally retarded", she is in fact making a perfectly valid point and i'm sorry you don't get it.
