"The Greatest Love of All," Boston PD remix

Yes, the email is an incoherent mess riddled with puerile and racist remarks. Yes, yes, it's a long litany of rightwing rhetoric, an ugly peek into the garbage-addled, xenophobic, sexist, and paranoid mind of a Fox-News-Glenn-Beck-watchin' wingnut. And, yes, it's disturbing that a Boston police officer and National Guard captain thinks like this - and I'm glad he wrote the email, so he could be duly suspended from both jobs.

All this is true. But what got me the most was the opening of his email:

"I am a former English teacher, writer..."

Yup. Justin Barrett, the author of this stunning incoherent rant, considers himself an educator and intellectual...

...so what's the under/over on this dude appearing on Beck's show as the victim of liberal elitism and reverse racism?

Beyond reprehensible (0.00 / 0)
Those remarks, if true, are beyond reprehensible.  No person should enjoy employment in public service who would say such things.  That being said, it is important not to conflate criticism of fringe types with the middle of either the left or the right.

Wise caution, Craig (0.00 / 0)
But I'm certain you'd concede that that's very difficult to do when the 'fringe' has such loud media voices as Beck, Malkin and Limbaugh.  To them, the President of the United States is fringe.  So, I guess it kinda depends on where you're standing.
