Those irrepressible guardians of journalistic integrity at WND (a former platform for Orly Taitz) are "reporting"

The world’s most powerful Internet search engine has accused WND of using “hate speech” and has threatened to block ads on the news site over its use of the term “black mobs” in news stories and columns reporting on a two-year epidemic of racial attacks in the U.S.
First off, hey Google, what took you so long?

Second off, hey WND, "two-year epidemic of racial attacks in the U.S."?  Where have you been?  There's been a black man in the White House at least five years now!  And if we're talking "epidemic of racial attacks" -- excuse me while I Stand My Ground and point out a lot of white people been shooting a lot of black people and getting away with it recently.  Not like I'm keeping score or anything, but if I was -- it sure looks like the White Team is winning.

And another thing...

When someone accuses you of "hate speech" doubling down ain't the way to go.  Well, it certainly plays well with your base, but they're getting older by the minute and I'm not seeing a whole lot of replacements coming down the pike.

If I was you, which thankfully I'm not, I would follow the advice Pat Robertson recently offered to a caller who discovered his partner (in sin) was transsexual.    Here's a clue, he didn't admonish the guy for sinful fornication.  No fornication like this you gotta go with the Old Standard.... shut up and pretend it never happened.

See, instead of going all David Duke and letting folks call you a racist, you gotta go the smart route, and be like FOX:

Now, I realize that is going to burn just a little bit... I mean who wants to be known as #2?  That's pretty shitty.  But hey, that just means you have to try harder!  

All I ask is do everyone a favor and don't even bother to whine about how hard you are trying.  

Trust me, we know you're trying.  You're really trying.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
