Amy Alkon is a Dim Bulb (Second in an Irregular Series)
Now, it seems, the delightfully dim Ms. Alkon has set her sights on the gang at Sadly, No! because they had the temerity to suggest that some of the rantings on her blog are racist. Basically, Ms. Amy relies on character assassination and guilt by association as she comes to the defense of police officers in Lima, Ohio . The latter shot a 26 year old black woman dead in a drug raid. (Read the report in The New York Times here.) The Sadly, No! folks have rightly ridiculed the delightful Ms. Alkon for her racist ranting    and now are subject to her wrath. My condolences.
Ms. Alkon's political views seem to me cold, congealed porridge ~ vague, right-wing libertarianism served up with a generous dollop of extreme self-righteousness and really bad pop-psychology (is that last redundant?) Funny how her libertarianism gets tossed overboard when the police (reminder Amy, they are agents of the state whose actions should make a libertarian very suspicious) are shooting at poor black people.
P.S.: (Added a bit later) ~ I forgot to mention that in the course of her rant our darling Ms. Amy managed to excoriate the murdered woman for having produced a "litter" of kids. Well, first of all, I suspect the kids were born serially not all in one batch. But beyond that obvious inability to master the English language, Ms. Amy seems not to understand that comparing people to animals is, well, dehumanizing. Maybe that is why people think she is a racist, or at least talks like one. And the fact that Ms. Amy doesn't get the dehumanizing implications of her words suggests that it is not that she just talks like a racist.
