A game show contestant won his contest last week. It was his third win in a row on that game show, and he bragged on it a little bit by flashing three fingers against his chest with his thumb and index finger forming a circle.
The Left has their collective panties twisted tightly. Flashing three fingers, they scream, isn’t a brag about winning three times. It isn’t even the standard “OK” sign that folks everywhere have used since forever.
No, it’s a White Supremacist sign. At least in their fetid, closed minds.
Worse, the winner wasn’t sufficiently contrite in response to the hysterical Left’s initial outcry.
“Most problematic to us as a contestant community,” they wrote, “is the fact that Kelly has not publicly apologized for the ramifications of the gesture he made.”
No, most problematic for the “contestant community” is the rank racist bigotry infesting that so-called community as they try so zealously to substitute their Newspeak dictionary for the standard dictionaries of honest Americans.
The response to the contestant’s abject apology, too, demonstrates that we cannot ever apologize to bigots; that only rewards them and eggs them on.
Apologizing to such as these actually is worse than useless—we can only counteract their bigoted assaults more forcefully than the attack.
The WSJ‘s final sentence in that editorial is spot on.
He has earned every penny, not least for giving a whole new meaning to Double Jeopardy.
