Pro-lynching?? I've heard and enjoyed Toby Keith's Beer for My Horses many times. It talks about rough frontier justice: Hanging people who were guilty of serious crimes. How does Max Blumenthal represent it on the infamous Huff Po? By showing pictures of people lynched for the color of their skin!
The "pro-lynching" lyrics:
Grandpappy told my pappy back in my day, son
A man had to answer for the wicked that he'd done
Take all the rope in Texas
Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys
Hang them high in the street
For all the people to see
I guess Max missed that word "wicked" in there! There's NOTHING about race in the song! So what is Max doing? Projecting the wickedness of his own heart on Toby Keith?
I believe there is a special circle in Hell for people like Max Blumenthal, who falsely accuse people of racism. He is a disgusting excuse for a human being. The jury is still out on anyone who would publish that swill! Disgusting!
Update: I went back over to the Huffington "All the News We Can Regurgitate" Post, where I spotted a comment that reminded me: Toby Keith has admitted to being a life long Democrat. Conservatives won't like his songs any less for that fact. The Democrats have just "outed" one of their own! Heh.
Update II: The Huff Po was caught hotlinking their picture as well
It appears that Mr. Blumenthal and the Huff Po apparently "hotlinked" the picture they used. Hotlinking is a form of bandwidth theft, where you "borrow" the picture by linking to its location on someone else's site.
On of the problems of hotlinking, for the unwary, is that the person hosting the site from whence the picture originates, sometimes finds out about the theft and substitutes a different picture in place of the original, which then appears on the hotlinked sites. (see Rickrolling)
So, instead of a black and white picture, showing blacks being lynched, there is a full color picture of a clown, telling the Huff Po (and its readers we would presume), to "F" off!
