Since that time, Carlson has drifted even further to the right, going so far as to start a right wing blog called The Daily Caller. That blog has supported all sorts of right wing political war mongering, but writers there are bringing attention to MSNBC analyst Touré, who said that a slave’s violence against a slaveowner can be morally condoned.
In a recent blog post referencing Quentin Tarantino’s new anti-slavery film “Django Unchained” , Touré wrote, “For the descendants of slaves, who live in a world still tangibly doused in slavery’s residue, watching Django kill his oppressors could possibly feel cathartic. If murder can ever be morally justified by the presence of clear, undiluted, sustained evil — and I believe it can — then it is justified when a slave kills a master.”
Yes, it is justifiable to kill a man who is trying to kill you. It seems quite justifiable to kill a man who has taken away your freedom. And the folks on the right who sat idly by while over 100,000 Iraqis lost their lives over a lie should be more than accepting of such a theory, considering that they have supported murder for far less reasons.
Strikingly, the hypocrisy on the right continues. The U.S. has bombed Iraq back into the stone ages, but Touré gets a front page article for supporting a slave’s right to kill his master? If the right wing ever wonders why they’ve lost the popular vote in 5 of the last 6 elections, they should look no further than The Daily Caller.
