I went into the interview with Uptown Steve well aware of his sandbox mentality and low intellect. Some of the questions asked to Steve were aimed at our own cartoon charachter Ducky. Ducky seems to think that racial epithets are okay as long as a Commie stooge like Harry Belafonte or Paul Robeson utter them. Ducky should be well aware that as the child of Broadway buffs not only am I aware of who wrote Emperor Jones I have seen it on TV and off Broaday. Ducky's use of another racial epithet Chimpy was used by White bigots against a black bigot Uptown Steve.
Uptown Steve plays the following games
1 Cry victim. The interview was fair and avoided Israel and Jews as much as possible.
Uptown has a running bit Jews controlled the slave trade bit. When asked about the overwelming Muslim and Black roles he responds so. The facts are that everyone was involved in the slave trade and highlighting a Jewish role itself is anti semitic. Have we ever discussed Italians, Norwegians or midgets in the slave trade ? The facts are that Blacks and Native Americans owned slaves. Nor were these Blacks who owned slaves merely purchasing relatives. One can see an over view of this in Dinesh D'Sousa's classic End of Racism.
2 Deny and demand quotes. Steve plays this game all the time. He denied calling Donal, JBaumgart, Pointman and Hispano Jews. His train of thought is akin to the old standard N%^&^& lover bit from bigots of yre. Esther and I stood up for Gays yesterday so according to Uptown both of us must be gay. I found all the quote and then he turns around and rationalizes. He has done this on topics was Yasser Arafat born in Egypt and is Michael Lerner a real Rabbi. Countless links were produced and he states well I still think Lerner is a Rabbi. Interestingly Lerner would have a genuine anti semite as a reader. The fact is that calling someone a Jew merely because of their opinions is indeed anti semitic. If Donal were here she could add names to the list.
3 Strawman irrelavent points. Donal and Jeff Bargholz are friends and their statements have absolutely nothing to do with me. Donal will readily tell you about Steve's crass behavior. I have been called a racist several times along with Zinla and Northern Steve. None of us have ever used racial epithets despite repeated attempts to provoke us into saying them.
4 Lack of education. Donal will verify this story and it is speaks vollumes. I asked Uptown over the course of two weeks to name a book he has read. He has yet to ever quote a book. Well he named a book about Nat Turner and the subject dropped. Except a poster Morgan Frost noticed he had gotten the title wrong and apparently never read that book either. You can see dozens of references to books on this blog.
The political affiiations of Lerner, Chomsky, Finklestein and Kovell are well known common knowledge. Any attempt to compare Thomas Sowell, La Shawn Barber, Walter E Williams and Larry Elder all patriotic Americans to Communists, Anarchists and Greens is insulting to people beloved by America.
5 Warped Logic Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are political figures and regularly run for office and are portrayed as Black leaders in the media. Michael Savage is a talk show host and seldom mentions blacks in any capacity. He does say plenty about Muslims and to a lesser extent Gays. David Horowitz is a writer and runs Front Page Magazine. He is not mixing apples with oranges but apples with zuccini.
The reason I did this interview was I wanted to show the mindset and low class behavior of a person who has fouled La Shawn Barbers site and FPM. I am fairly certain that La Shawn is well aware of the differnce between honest dissent and low class showmanship punctuated by stupidity. What does La Shawn's inability to pass the bar mean to a person that could not name a single book he had read for two weeks ? Other classic Uptown Steve moments were claiming Iranians were Arabs. Donal, Florian and Nanc might have other examples of Uptowns stupidity.
I will never forget the words of my favorite writer Richard Poe when I disagreed with him on the Terry Schiavo matter . It does not take a genius to know the difference between an honest man and a knave. For the record Richard Poe did explain why I was 100% wrong and misguided.
Mr Poe's words were on display yesterday and before that with John Brown.
Mr Beamish in 08, Ducky to get wed to Ernie in MA, 167 still a ratings zero and Socrasleaze still aborted and looking for Meathead.
