. . . kicked into gear this week and the Houston Chronicle broadcast the unsubstantiated charges with a long, lovingly rendered page-one story. The target:
. . . Edith Jones, judge, Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
The Chronicle took open delight in piling on. One example among too many to count: Ms. Jones's awards came from "ultra-conservatives."
You will grow old and die before you ever see our miserable newspaper refer to anyone on the left, including the Occupy movement and the vicious authors of the complaint against Judge Jones, as "ultra" anything.
Other media curs in the pile with the Houston Chronicle: the Huffington Post, the Austin Chronicle, the Daily Kos, salon.com., the New York Times, and the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Yes, it was news.
But not page one.
Not 27 precious grafs, even in (especially in) Houston.
And not so openly solicitous of the saintly and precious radical activists behind the smear.
This is how the radical left operates, by bullying those with whom it disagrees.
Strong women, blacks, and browns who refuse to live on the feminist and racialist reservations must be destroyed.
This will not end well for the activists or the purported journalists who treated the charges seriously, but the open secret is that they don't care. The harm has been done.
