No Righty Blog Posts About Thuggish Attacks Against Indian Workers In Milwaukee

Last week the righty side of the blogosphere was in full wounded mode, stung by accusations they were too quick to throw the "thug" word at Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors Chairman Lee Holloway.

I said race had a lot to do with that, and the righty bloggers said that was thuggish, because they use the word in plenty of situations where race isn&;t a factor.

I was expecting that they&;d have jumped on the outrageous story in these parts a few days ago, when a pair of area men admitted targeting 20 Indian-owned businesses, like gas stations, robbing them and throwing hot coffee in some of the employee and owners&; faces.

I thought for sure I&;d see righty bloggers happy to call these arrested perpetrators "thuggish," in sort of a nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah way, proving the bloggers were truly equal-oppportunity thug labelers - - since they can spot a thug when they see it - - and I was oh-so-wrong.

So far, I see no posts on the righteously offended righty bloggers&; sites about behavior that really looks thuggish, aina?

A whole lot worse than the instances where Holloway acted badly, but not criminally. 

Some details about the anti-Indian/immigrant crimes,
