In light of today’s web publication of my print-edition piece on Rep. Bobby Jindal, it is worth asking why the so called mainstream media have not made front-page coverage of the Louisiana Democratic Party’s disgusting, bigoted, slanderous, tawdry ad accusing the LA GOP gubernatorial candidate of somehow being viciously anti-Protestant because of WAY out-of-context quotes taken from a highly thoughtful piece Jindal wrote years ago for the New Oxford Review (full story available only with payment). Redstate is one of the sites that have done excellent takedowns of the Demo ad, but Kos himself has shown his true, hateful colors by defending the ad. (I will try to find the Kos link later.) Louisiana newspapers are ripping the state Dem Party for the ad, and early word is that it will cause a backlash in Jindal’s favor. As well it should. Any leading LA Democrat who doesn’t publicly disavow the ad is guilty by association with the rankest sort of bigotry. In a follow-up post, I will explain why this is par for the course for at least some large swaths of the Democratic elites.
