The Blatant Racism of Moonbattery.com

Moonbattery: Stormfront Lite

There are several far-right hate blogs on the internet. Some--like Free Republic--are well known. There is another blog that isn't as well known but is far worse than Free Republic. That site is known as Moonbattery.

It's name comes from a slang term for far-left activists: Moonbats. There is a similar term for the far-right: Wingnut. The people who post on Moonbatterty are weapons-grade wingnuts. 

While most wingnuts generally post angry rants and poorly researched tirades against liberals for being Marxists or terrorist-sympathizers, Moonbattery is different in that it does not limit its virulent hatred and bigotry. The blog is also a racist blog. Most racist blogs in this day and age will try to be subtle about it: VDARE, for example, has an unmistakably racist narrative but hides it behind pseudo-intellectual wordplay. Moonbattery goes all out with its racism. The blog posts of its creator, Dave Blount, are often indistinguishable from those of Stormfront, an explicitly white supremacist blog. 

Take this screed found on Fundies Say The Darndest Things: 

New York City and Virginia aren’t the only places to be pushed off the deep end by demographically supported left-wing ideology. It happened to South Africa when the country committed suicide at the insistence of the sanctimonious “international community” by turning control over to a mob of savages. The formerly civilized nation’s descent is gaining velocity.

Equality will not be achieved until everyone is forced down to the lowest level. 

South Africa is already a hell for the whites who once raised it up out of the Stone Age. Much of the white population has escaped due to endemic racial violence and systematic racial discrimination. But so long as there are any left at all, whites will be blamed for Africans continuing to live like Africans

This is pure racism, plain and simple. Dave Blount has posted numerous vile, disgusting racist drivel towards blacks, arabs, and seems to have an almost psychotic hatred of liberalism. What he views as liberal is also extremely warped. In the demented, sick, deranged mind of Dave Blount, Chris Christie is a far-left Marxist aided by the "shadowy machine" of George Soros. 

He's not, from I can tell, a Poe. In fact, Dave Blount has posted on John Hawkins's Right Wing News, so he's legitimately this insane.

The comments section of Moonbattery is littered with some of the vilest, most contemptible hateful filth you can think of. Advocates of violence against gays and liberals, proponents of genocide against arabs, and just general wallowing in one's own ignorance and bigotry. I'm almost ashamed to be form the same country as these worthless, intellectual bankrupt, shitbrained cretins.
