Philly Inquirer Shows Itself a Rag

Caleb points out this piece of garbage article in the Philadelphia Inquirer:

It has been years since groups such as the Montana Militia, the Posse Comitatus and the Sagebrush Rebels, and individuals such as Terry Nichols and Ted Kaczynski have made us wonder why so many “angry white men” populated our rural regions.

Maybe it’s because ignorant and prejudiced academic pricks like Catherine McNicol keep consencending and thumbing their nose at rural white men.  I know this sounds crazy, but that tends to make people angry.  I’ve run into just as much intolerance and racism in urban areas as I have in rural areas, and to be honest, some of the most ignorant and provincial people I know don’t occupy America’s heartland, but our coastal urban centers.  Tolerance has to be a two way street, and it’s a shame that obviously well educated academics like McNicol don’t understand that.

It’s even more disturbing that the Philadelphia Inquirer, a newspaper that serves a city that should understand being looked down at and spit on, would print such utter bigotry.

  1. You echoed my thoughts EXACTLY upon reading the quote you posted. A writer from PHILADELPHIA, of all places, making accusations of inherent violence against another region? That’s the sort of blinkered, Philistine pig-ignorance I’ve come to accept from such non-creative garbage…to paraphrase Monty Python.

  2. Navy Vet from Jersey says:

    Catherine McNicol fails to mention in her screed that there are “domestic terrorists” and other wacko groups of the left-wing-extremist variety who also come from and have numerous supporters in the Pacific Northwest: Earth First!, Earth Liberation Front, Animal Liberation Front, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, etc. etc.
