Liberal Hypocrisy

Weaselzippers had linked to a story earlier from Ivan Fernando at the Diversity Chronicles reporting on a professor who called for the extermination of whites. Frankly, when I first read the Diversity Chronicles' article and peeked around their web site, I was not sure but that it was a parody site like the Onion. However, Weaselzippers had links to other racist rants by the professor, Noel Ignatiev, so the article (or at least Prof. Ignatiev's) statements may be genuine. Anyway, from the article/story:
“If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others!” Professor Noel Ignatiev, a tenured professor at Massachusetts College loudly proclaimed to his class last Monday, his final teaching day before retirement.

The good Professor’s sound and reasonable words resonate with every enlightened and progressive mind. They are indisputable and no one can debate them. They should not be controversial in the slightest, yet remarkably a few far-right extremists object to the Prof. Ignatiev’s advice. The Professor however, reported receiving “a standing ovation” from his “largely white and middle class students.” Prof. Ignatiev’s critics say that openly calling for students, even if they are white males, to kill themselves was inappropriate and perhaps excessive. In this article, we will look at the other side of the issue.
Mr. Fernando then writes up an interview with "the good Professor" that is even more incredible than the statements above. Assuming this isn't some sort of spoof (which I still believe to be the case), I have to admire Mr. Fernando's ability to make it through the interview without erupting into laughter strong enough to cause massive internal bleeding, or at least a hernia. That Mr. Fernando was probably almost paralyzed by the effort to not guffaw, even once, probably is what prevented him from asking several obvious questions, including the key question I had, which is why the Professor, who is a white male, had not killed himself!
