More right wing asshattery

Blame this post on CIL who alerted me to this outrageous Worldnet Daily column attacking the abortion clinic planned by Ogalala in South Dakota, cleverly entitled, "Sioux tribe plans to scalp its own." Nice, eh?

Make no mistake about it, I am as uneasy with abortion as any liberal can be. I think Ms. Stanek refuses, however to acknowledge that this plan is in response to what most see as an unreasonable law, but I don't have a problem with her attacking the plan.

What I do object to is the blatant racism she employs in her rhetoric. From the title to stereotypical references, she employs bigotry to advance her argument.
"In 1876, the Oglala Sioux were responsible for massacring Gen. George Custer and his men at Little Bighorn, mutilating and scalping them as they went.

What a difference 130 years make. Today the Oglala Sioux plan to massacre their own children, mutilating and scalping them as they go."
Nice, eh? Poor Custer.

This is bigotry, pure and simple, and Ms. Janek is a racist.
