6+1 degrees of separation

Apparently, Rep. Stacey Campfield (R-Illiterate) believes that everyone is as gullible as his supporters. Responding to charges that one of the blogs on his blogroll, Staghounds, is racist, he writes:

It was because I had a link to a sight [sic] that had a link to a site that quoted a black man who wrote for a black owned paper in a black run country about a thought he had that some call racist.

Well, it's not quite that simple. Let's take a look at the post in question. It appeared at the top of the Staghounds blog on the day Rep. Stacey X updated his blogroll.

No black American would DARE
say this publicly, and no American medium would air it. Even though millions of Americans, white and black, are thinking it.

"Desperation? Yeah, right. I am beginning to believe that black people, no matter where in the world they are, are cursed with a genetic predisposition to steal, murder, and create mayhem."

# Shocking truth and expecting more- how dare he!

Is, as Campfield claims, this a case of racism--three-links-removed? Hardly. Staghound's thesis is obvious--"no one in the politically-correct United States would dare speak the truths uttered by this Jamaican journalist." There's no other reasonable interpretation. Campfield's readers should be insulted that he holds them in such contempt that he'd offer up such a weak excuse.

A better move would have been to say that the Staghounds link was not added on that day. As noted in my previous post, I could not definitely put a date on the link's first appearance. The fact that he didn't employ this stronger argument suggests that the assumption I made below was correct. Staghounds was added on the day when that horrendously racist post appeared at the the top of the page. One could therefore assume that it's what prompted Rep. Campfield to add it to his blogroll.

In any event, racist diatribes seem to be a staple at Staghounds. Campfield surely knew what he was linking to.
