Washington Times Writer Warns of ‘Black’ Ku Klux Klan
Racially insensitive, historically inaccurate rant ties Sharpton, Jackson to hate-fueled race war
Is black supremacy as bad and as prevalent as white supremacy?
Washington Times columnist Jeff Kuhner (yes, that’s really his name) thinks black supremacy is a “poison that is spreading across our society, meeting little to no resistance.”
Kuhner reveals himself to be one of the conservative newspaper’s most ill informed writers, having penned what is arguably the most racially insensitive and historically inaccurate rants about race relations in America.
He, rightly, decries the divisive language and actions of the New Black Panthers, but fouls when likening some of black America’s most respected civil rights leaders to one of the world’s most vicious hate groups, the Ku Klux Klan.

Who exactly does Kuhner peg to the “rise of the black Klan?”
Read for yourself:
“This racial hypocrisy permeates American society. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan — all are race-baiters and grievance-mongers who peddle a form of black nationalism. Instead of being ostracized, they are embraced and their behavior is rationalized by the liberal establishment.”
Kuhner, like others of his political persuasion, thinks President Barack Obama should have to answer for his association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright. He says it was one of the many examples the “liberal media” failed in its vetting of Obama.
“If George W. Bush had spent 20 years in the church of a white supremacist, he never would have come close to winning the Republican nomination — never mind the presidency. Conservatives would have rightly excoriated him.”
Lastly, Kuhner ices the cake by dismissing the Trayvon Martin tragedy as another example of the disregard for white victims of violent crime.
“Black-on-white crime is largely ignored by the media. White-on-black crime is turned into a national tragedy — even when the alleged perpetrator is Hispanic, such as Mr. Zimmerman. Institutionalized discrimination against whites — affirmative action, racial quotas, and university admissions policies — has become a permanent feature of life.”
Well, Mr. Kuhner…here are six things you can look up before you rewrite your awful rant:
The American slave trade. Lynching. Jim Crow. Police brutality. Racial profiling. Hate crimes.
Any quick, but honest study of those topics is sure to merit a few corrections to your column.
