The poster whom Kerry Shirts referred to as "Rube-inn Dunn!" in the 2010 FAIR Conference film has completely flipped his lid. Over on the aptly named MADboard, USU "Rube-inn Dunn!" 78 has launched a thread in which he attempts to argue that remarks made by the sister of E. Smart abductor B. D. Mitchell are examples of "Casual Bigotry":http://www.mormonapologetics.org/topic/ ... l-bigotry/
Here's the OP:
USU 'On the Verge of Apoplexy' 78 wrote:
She only said that BDM couldn't possibly get a fair trial because of "all of the Mormons" in Utah.
And nary a word of censure from the press.
Defense attorneys regularly promote such mindless bigotry in their defense of "the system."
I'm pretty much convinced such a tactic, promoting much-more-than-casual bigotry as it does, inevitably backfires.
Did anybody else catch this?
Right. It's rather like when black people fan the fires of bigotry by complaining that it's difficult for African Americans to achieve parity in the judicial system. Right, "Rube-inn"? But things get even worse in USU's follow-up post:
USU 'The Casual Racist' 78 wrote:
Enough with the threadjacking already. Francis especially: the issue is casual bigotry expressed in the context of pretrial publicity, but the setting is quite secondary to the fact of the bigotry being expressed. And the refusal of the press to hold people accountable for such outrages.
Insert "Jew" wherever "Mormon" occurs in the woman's statement, and the press and The Anti-Defamation League is all over it for the obvious outrage it is.
USU "Makes you wonder if John Young Lennon was right: 'Mormon is the 'N*****' of the world" 78
Wow... I wonder if one of his friends over there on the aptly named MADboard should tell him that it's considered bad form
to toss around epithets like this. Certainly, USU"Rube-inn Dunn" 78 doesn't have a very good track record when it comes to tolerance of diversity and sensitivity to minority viewpoints. With his gratuitous slams on the gay community, and now this senseless throwing around of the "n-word"---he's threatening to single-handedly transform the MADboard into a new-wave, Mormon-themed version of the KKK. In any case, I hope that the SCMC has been paying close attention to Mr. "Rube-inn Dunn!"'s antics. He could become quite a liability to the Church.
