WND Wants You to Know that You're Racist for Thinking a Story on 'Black Mob Violence' is Racist

WorldNetDaily – incubator of birtherism and new professional home of Rick Santorum – published a story earlier this week titled  “Beach Week’ Draws Black Crowd – And Violence.” The content of the story is about what you’d expect, especially since it’s written by an author who seems to specialize in reporting on what he calls “black mob violence.” This led us to notice that each of the author’s stories on the subject is prefaced by this remarkable editorial note:

(Editor’s note: Colin Flaherty has done more reporting than any other journalist on what appears to be a nationwide trend of skyrocketing black-on-white crime, violence and abuse. WND features these reports to counterbalance the virtual blackout by the rest of the media due to their concerns that reporting such incidents would be inflammatory or even racist. WND considers it racist not to report racial abuse solely because of the skin color of the perpetrators or victims.)

This strategy – preemptive denial of racism in clearly racist content – was previously perfected by Matt Drudge.
