One of the Things I Don’t Like About Ernie

Ahh, good ol’ Ernie Chambers. I have celebrated him many times. But it’s times like this, when he calls opponents racist when they disagree with him on issues of race, that he becomes a tough person to defend. It’s unfortunate to see an orator like Senator Chambers resort to petty ad hominems to make an attack. Bitter Ernie is so much less persuasive than Creative Ernie.

What else does he do?

He’s not calling the guy racist because he disagrees with Ernie. He’s calling a resolution to ban affirmative action “racism.” That’s different, and it’s not like the “racism” label is the entire substance of Ernie’s argument.

Obviously one could easily and probably justifiably infer that Ernie thinks Christensen is a racist, but it’s hardly just for disagreeing with him. It’s not like they went to the movies, Mark wanted butter on the popcorn and Ernie didn’t so he called him a racist.
