Political Correctness, not any real ethical principle, got Ethan Czahor kicked loose from Jeb Bush organization.
Have you ever heard the word “tea-bagger” in the mainstream (and Leftish) cable news? Have you heard conservatives being mocked for being white? Have you heard Democrat politicians make dismissive comments about White voters?
Yes you have. And they have never been treated like they were guilty of some great sin. No Democrat politician feels a need to distance themselves from such a person.
So why did Jeb Bush get rid of Ethan Czahor, the new Chief Technology Officer for Bush’s “Right to Rise” organization?
Newser.com gives us the following tweet from Czahor as an example of what started the trouble: “Most people don’t know that ‘Halloween’ is German for ‘night girls with low self-esteem dress like sluts.” Having that opinion about why women dress that way may be controversial (slightly) but I have seen the advertising that kicks up before Halloween and it is undeniable that such attire is especially marketed and sold to women on that holiday. Why is this even a controversy.
But then, apparently, came the straw that broke the camel’s back. According to the Huffington Post, Czahor as a radio host,
once praised Martin Luther King Jr. for not speaking in “‘jibberish’ or ‘slang’” as well as for not wearing “pants sagged to his ankles.”
Uh, it is nice that MLK knew how to present himself as a grown-up adult. Don Lemon, who is a typical CNN left-wing propagandist, has even said the same thing about how Black men present themselves. We all know that it is fair game to make disparaging comments about conservative White culture (thus my question about “tea baggers” etc, above).
None of this should have anything to do with racism. There are still many black men who dress and deport themselves with some dignity (Don Lemon is one example). So when dealing with problems like black poverty, why isn’t it relevant, among other factors, to start talking about what kind of qualities will help a person break into the labor market? It is not wrong to hold up Martin Luther King, Jr, as a model for black men to emulate. On the contrary, it is the right thing to do.
Yet this kind of thing gets a man fired from a Republican organization.
If this is the kind of moral cowardice that Jeb Bush intends to display in his campaign, what kind of President will he be in the face of liberal media criticism?
