And Speaking of Liberal Bigotry …

Kathryn Jean Lopez announced this week she is stepping aside as editor of National Review Online.

I’ll still be contributing to NRO with ideas and content, and if you are an author or reader you might not notice much of a change. I’ll probably still be bugging you for pieces if you’re an author and I’ll still be traffic-copping the Corner. But I will be moving my primary base of operation in the fall from New York to D.C., and will no longer honcho NRO on a day-by-day basis.

Unable to contain their nasty barbs for long, two liberal bloggers offered prime examples of the assumption that liberalism offers a sure-fire defense against accusations of bigotry.

Exhibit A: The Ethnic Slur

In response to K-Lo’s statement that she will “no longer honcho NRO on a day-by-day basis,” Firedoglake blogger TBogg wrote:

Since “honcho” is not a verb, we consulted the Urban Dictionary to see what crazee ways kidz are using “honcho” these days, but to no avail. We did find “hincho“:

a person of latin american descent with poor taste in fashion, music and speaks with a heavy accent

….so, we’re thinking typo.

Exhibit B: The Sexist Photo Manipulation

The Sadly, No blog is keeping feminism alive by portraying Lopez as an out of work prostitute:

What strength and courage it must take to use gender and ethnicity to attack your ideological foes.  Are you as blown away as I am?

    I think it is a real shame that she is stepping down. It would seem to me that an Hispanic woman with all of her myriad experiences would be a much more capable editor than some old, white guy.

    Tbogg and the rest of the degenerates at FDL can’t help but let their Klan robes show. Wasn’t FDL’s matriarch the cretin who put blackface photos on Huffpo?
