Vogue editor: Allen West’s ‘Coon Minstrely Theatre’ an ‘embarrassment to blacks’

Revolting.

André Leon Talley is the former American editor-at-large for Vogue magazine and a current contributing editor. When we last checked in with Talley, he was calling for progressives to boycott a Clint Eastwood film. Today he slithered further into the progressive gutter and joined the other foul-mouthed libs who attacked Rep. Allen West in racial terms when he conceded his House race.

Talley took to Twitter to tell his 128,000 followers that West, a decorated combat veteran, is the “dumbest man walking around America” and an “embarrassment to Blacks.” No, wait, actually he called West an “embarassment to Blacks.” That’s right, he spelled “embarrassment” wrong while calling someone else dumb.

But he wasn’t done. The repulsive Talley also tweeted that West’s mother must be “ashamed” of his “Coon Minstrely Theatre.”

Coon MinstrelyTheatre!If your mother is with you, she must be ashamed of you.You barks were / aresadAllen West!

Time and again, this is how conservative minorities are treated when they stray from the Left’s ideological plantation. March in lockstep with the liberals or else!

If West parroted the Left’s talking points and promoted crushing liberal policies that cripple all Americans, Talley would celebrate him as an American hero. Instead, he brands West as a race-traitor and insists race and politics should dictate politics.

Typical and despicable.

Joyce Carol Oates: I meant my hope for violence against NRA members ‘seriously’

http://twitter.com/#!/JoyceCarolOates/status/281523575125581824

….” they might be more sympathetic with victims & with the effort to regulate guns.I meant this seriously– not ironically.

— Joyce Carol Oates (@JoyceCarolOates) December 19, 2012

Er … was there anyone who believed famed author Joyce Carol Oates was being “ironic” when she tweeted, “If sizable numbers of NRA members become gun-victims themselves, maybe hope for legislation of firearms?” A classless and vile wish for ushering in gun control through violence against gun owners, sure. But ironic?

This one takes the faux-pology cake.

While we’re not convinced that the renowned literary maven actually gets what irony is, she does appear to have a solid grasp on absurdity and the construction of faulty analogies.

As John McCain is to torture, so a gun-victim would be to the unregulated use of guns by civilians.

@jetboy24 @joycecaroloatesGood to know!But not so surprising really.

— Joyce Carol Oates (@JoyceCarolOates) December 20, 2012

Maybe Sen. McCain just needs to have his plane shot down again to really learn his lesson, huh, Joyce?

Division in US over guns is–maybe–between those who think it’s “fun” to shoot & sometimes kill–& those who just don’t get it.

— Joyce Carol Oates (@JoyceCarolOates) December 20, 2012

But by all means, weigh in on things you “don’t get.”

Have to confess, my father was the only man in our little community who never owned a gun, didn’t hunt & thought hunting was ridiculous.

— Joyce Carol Oates (@JoyceCarolOates) December 20, 2012

Maybe hunting, gun owning, shooting is essentially a family thing?You inherit the predilection & the passion?Like much religion?

— Joyce Carol Oates (@JoyceCarolOates) December 20, 2012

The only thing that’s missing now is a little speculation that gun owners routinely murder in cold blood and blame shooting accidents. Wait for it …

Recalling my rural childhood & incidents of “gun accidents”–now I am wondering how many of these deaths were not accidental at all.

— Joyce Carol Oates (@JoyceCarolOates) December 20, 2012

Despicable.

Here Are The 26 Most Cringeworthy Ways People Have Proposed. I Hope She Said No To #5.

Giving the love of your life a perfect marriage proposal is tricky business. Not only do you want your significant other to say yes, but you want the moment to be absolutely perfect and absolutely them. Every person who is about to propose has played the moment over and over in their heads after hours of planning… Except for these people. Instead of planning out their proposal in a thoughtful and special way, it seems that they just winged it. Saying yes to an awkward and cringeworthy like this is definitely a bad idea.

1.) What a delicious proposal.

2.) Don’t trust your friends to do it for you.

3.) This is a good way to cause a wreck, not begin a marriage.

4.) … okay, this is almost impressive.

5.) NO NO NO NO NO.

6.) I hope this is a joke.

7.) … sigh.

8.) This could have been SO GOOD.

9.) How does she say yes? Order popcorn chicken?

10.) It’s kind of worth it for her heart attack.

11.) I don’t think she’ll appreciate this less-than-flattering photo.

12.) His face will be SO red if she says no.

13.) I think I’d prefer a ring.

14.) Is there an emoji for “disappointed and depressed?”

15.) Yes, pizza, I WILL marry you.

16.) BRB, let me pee before I answer.

17.) Trashy is the new classy.

18.) You just failed so hard, Duke fan.

19.) Cut your hair and put on a shirt. Then, maybe.

20.) Rocks… they say what we’re too afraid to.

21.) I wonder how many women said no to this interesting offer.

22.) The effort is nice, but the execution is more than a little strange.

23.) I take that back. THIS is strange.

24.) Ohhhhh duuuddddeeee. No.

25.) Mild… just like your romance.

26.) This was almost perfect, until it wasn’t.

Hopefully these people found a way to have a “happily ever after” ending (even if their marriage began by sticking a ring into a chicken sandwich).
