Utterly Hypocritical WaPo Apologizes for ‘Fajitas’ Insult to Democrat, Ignores Liberal ‘Chimichanga’ Joke
In an display of abject hypocrisy, the Washington Post apologized Wednesday for a stupid joke made against Obama’s dimwitted HUD Secretary Julian Castro, where some editor wrote, “we’ll need more fajitas” above a short article about him:
It’s stupid, not terribly offensive, but worthy of an apology for a professional news organization, which they quickly made. You know what apology we didn’t get? The one from their liberal moron Dana Milbank for this nearly identical joke two years ago:
Another stupid joke, but NO apology. There was even a furor from Latino conservatives to show how liberals can get away with what would be racism from conservatives or anyone else. In fact, the Washington Post let the idiot double down and KEEP MOCKING LATINOS.
In the former case, it’s Obama’s pet politician, so any offense to his precious MUST be addressed immediately! And they did:
“Imagine our dismay Tuesday morning when we opened the paper to read a most offensive subhead atop a Loop item about Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro and his staff,” wrote Al Kamen, a columnist and co-author of the article, on Wednesday. “The copy editor who wrote it — a brilliant and supremely reliable colleague who had a bad day — was attempting to evoke the Texas origins of the secretary and his aides. He has apologized.”
Oh they were simply dismayed! Poor little hypocrites! Here’s another quote:
Cameron Barr, national editor for the Washington Post, told the San Antonio Express-News that Al Kamen, the columnist who wrote the article in which the subhead appeared, “apologized directly to Secretary Castro’s spokesperson.”
“We are duly mortified, chagrined and abashed and apologize to our readers,” Kamen wrote.
See how that works? If you’re a liberal and you insult Hispanics, nothing happens, but insult a Hispanic LIBERAL and they’re mortified and chagrined.
What a bunch of pathetic hypocrites.
