Many Respectable Pundits Have Always Been Horrible

Since today is busy, I’ll just point you to this thread by some asshole with a blogTwitter feed. There have always been bigoted pundits who defend acceptable bigotries, just as there have always been horrible MAGA CHUD types (even if they obviously weren’t called MAGA back in the day).

What makes our very precocious pundits so pernicious is they use their considerable intellect to tortuously defend their bigotries (unlike the MAGA CHUDs who embrace them openly) because they simply can’t admit their prejudices and bigotries to themselves. This is how the horribleness becomes mainstream. Same old same old, just new targets.
