Jason Whitlock's Pretty Sure That Broccoli Is Racist

Crying racism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.

By his own admission, Whitlock made a "mistake" in comparing the NRA to the KKK. But anyone else who notices that mistake is a "racist" for doing so.

O'Reilly invited him on to his show, Whitlock refused, and then O'Reilly knocked him as a coward. You can say whatever you like about this tactic of O'Reilly's -- but it's clearly not racist. He does it to everyone.

But Whitlock reaches for that Special Card.


But it appears I was summoned to testify before Speaker of The Big House Bill O’Reilly, the FOX News entertainer. O’Reilly is fixated on the mistake I made on the Tom Joyner show. O’Reilly spent part of his Tuesday show telling his viewers that I was afraid to come on “The Factor” and discuss my views on the NRA, the Second Amendment and gun culture.

I’m a grown-ass man and it’s 2012. I don’t have to shuffle off to the Big House when summoned. O’Reilly is not Boehner, Pelosi or Obama. He’s a TV entertainer who has spent the weeks after the election crying about the end of “white establishment” America, the end of the days when an upstanding white man felt entitled to summon whomever he wanted whenever he wanted to the Big House to dance.

I don’t dance.

Racism is the new Ladies' Troubles. A general excuse for not doing stuff you don't want to do, and a sort of icky area no one's going to probe too deeply about.

Jason Whitlock may not dance, but apparently he plays tennis, goes horseback riding, and walks along the beach.

"That Broccoli Is Racist" is an old Andrew Breitbart joke, by the way. He suggested that as a name for a show starring Toure. The concept was that Toure would just point out random objects and accuse them of being racist. I imagine the credits would begin with him accusing the broccoli.

Whitlock was an all-state offensive lineman at Warren Central High School in Warren Township in the eastern part of Indianapolis, and he blocked for quarterback Jeff George, who later became the first overall pick in the 1990 NFL Draft. He played offensive line at Ball State because of thyroid issue that developed when he was 20 years old.

MAJOR issues.

I've been looking for a specific story I remember about him for a while now, but can't find it. It was him being an asshole to a KC-area coach and getting it shoved back in his face, then coming up to the guy afterward and talking about how it was "hurtful" for the guy to do that to him.

I want to say the situation was him asking former Kansas football coach Mark Mangino why good athletes would want to play for such a fat bastard of a coach and Mangino, who doesn't suffer fools well, let him have it.

That. Right. There. If it seems a tad over-the-top, that's how the game is played. When the Congressional Black Caucus called a news conference and tolld the country the GOP is racist for opposing Susan Rice, Republicans muttered and stared at their shoes.

No more. Say it with me: "False charges of racism will be treated as racism."

This is political war. One side is using nukes and we're practicing a unilateral freeze. Take offense. FAKE offense, if you have to. But don't let the Left play racial politics without paying a price. They don't like having to defend their allegations, and frankly the MFM doesn't like exploring them. Push back.

103 Racism is the new Ladies' Troubles. A general excuse for not doing stuff you don't want to do, and a sort of icky area no one's going to probe too deeply about.

I'd say that, in politics, Racism is the new Communism. Even false allegations can tip elections, prey on fear and ruin careers.

116 I miss Breitbart. I only wish someone would (or could) step up and fill the media space he occupied. Unlike most faces and voices on the Right, he spoke to everyone, left, right, and in-between, not just the like-minded true believers, and he did it with humor, verve, and style. If it was done once, it could be done again. He or she is out there, I'm sure. We just haven't found them yet.

Here's the thing: Breitbart got it. He understood that culture is the key and he also understood that when you come at the bad guys, you come at them with a smile.

'That broccoli is racist!' lol. Personally, I don't have a sense of humor--I rarely laugh or smile, I can't tell a joke, and I don't get jokes most of the time, which is itself an endless source of amusement to my children, but I can appreciate its power.

Had no idea who Whitlock was until reading his NRA comments on AoSHQ
last week. Had no idea he was black until reading this article today. So
does that make mean I'm not racist because I assumed that a babbling
idiot was white, or am I racist because I assumed that any professional
writer-commentator-or-whatever-the-hell-he-is must be white?

119 This made me laugh from Whitlock:

That’s what I do. And I do it without giving much thought to which politically partisan group I’m pissing off. When Taylor was senselessly murdered, I lambasted the primarily black "gangsta" culture that preys on black people the way the KKK once did.

Now, which “politically partisan group” would be pissed off by a writer lambasting the gangsta culture? What does it say about 21st century America, one of the two major political parties relies so heavily on deviant culture that it would take offense to criticism of the culture?

Posted by: CJ at December 11, 2012 10:42 AM (9KqcB)

120 I posted this on HA not long ago when JW went after the NRA. It applies to this article too:
Here is the skinny. I grew up with Jason Whitlock. I knew him having played football with him (Jeff George was our quarterback). He was a year ahead of us at Stonybrook JH and Warren Central HS. He grew up without racism, conflict or poverty. We were a middle class community with a pretty good school system and a representative cross section of races in eastern Indianapolis suburbs. He was an ok guy with moderate intelligence who never really faced any controversies he didn’t create.
What is really tragic and somewhat despicable is that for the past 15 years or so he has decided to morph into a race-baiter akin to JJJR and Rev Al. It’s how he makes his money. Having never actually experienced any real racial issues of his own makes what he peddles even more repulsive.
Remember to read his “pieces” through the prism of truth about JW. He is just another snake oil salesman. Ironically, he wrote a good piece about the black quarterback culture which puts those average quarterbacks into untouchable protective bubbles (see Rush) of which they ALWAYS burst and crash. JW doesn’t understand (or maybe he does which is worse) that HE is the beneficiary of the same favoritism and untouchable status from the politically correct media complex based entirely on his color, not his mediocre talent.
Read your own work Jason. Learn it. You already live it.

a couple of weeks ago there was a sports station on in the back ground
and some white man was interviewing a black man and the black man was
upset because if a white coach has a bad season or 10 they keep getting
chances to pull it together and get to keep their job...but if a black
man is coaching he gets on or two seasons at best to prove himself and
then he is fired...and that is representative in the racism in the
nfl.....all i could think of is how many women coaches are there? what
about the handicapped cripple asians? i never see them getting a chance
to coach.....

123 I would add Bill Simmons and Rick Reilly to that list as well.

Don't read Reilly all that much, but Simmons used to be pretty decent. He would throw in the occasional 'political' comment, but it wasn't all the time and was at least usually funny.

Once he moved to L.A. to write for Kimmel, things got noticably worse (I assume to impress all the cool kids). All the usual fucktard left-wing talking points were much more prevalent. Which I wouldn't mind all that much, but they weren't even funny anymore.

I give him a pass too because when Skip Bayless called Mike Shanahan a racist for using a 4th round draft choice on Kirk Cousins in the NFL draft, Smith defended Shanahan for the pick. This after Shanahan traded the Redskins' 2012 1st and 2nd round draft choices, 2013 1st round draft choice, and 2014 1st round draft choice to move up 4 spots to draft RG3.

146 I think I read a piece by Ace where he warned about punching down.

In this case I think the same concept could apply. I'll call it reaching down. Costas "reached down" to Whitlock's incoherent piece to give his own point of view some credibility...and emotion on TV. But by reaching down to Whitlock, he linked himself to a race hustler and lost control of his own image.

Now Whitlock calls the NRA the embodiment of the KKK, whatever, but Costas is still linked to this mess because he dredged him up into the limelight after most responsible sports guys were staying away from Whitlock after the Jeremy Linn/asian comments.

I'm sure Costas is cringing with every new comment from Whitlock and is greatly regretting the "shout out."

I would continue to go after Costas and as him about everything Whitlock does. This tactic worked well for the Obama following the Akin comments. Pin this story on Costas, keep Whitlock in the news - this is a political story. Ask Costas if he thinks Bill O is a slave master. These are the little cultural battles we conservatives have been losing for years. Time to turn it around.

Excellent idea and astute analysis, but you do know those in a position to execute such a tactic would necessarily be right-of-center or conservatives, right? And since when have we been able to use such tactics to our advantage? The ham-handed awkwardness of most of our media efforts at nearly every levelis incredibly frustrating.

Yes, but it's the FIRST refuge when Jason Whitlock needs to write a new column. Whitlock is the sporting world's equivalent of Al Sharpton. His STANDARD column is about racism in sports. He is, literally, the boy who cried "racism."
