The Racism and Anti-Semitism Charges Fly

Ben Stein notes the disturbing tactics being used against George Allen and Michael Steele:

In the past two weeks, the DNC and Democrat Party have been embarrassed by racist and anti-Semitic attacks against Republican Senate candidates Michael Steele and Sen. George Allen. In the case of Steele, it was racist blogging posts. In Allen's it was planted questions in the media about his Jewish heritage. Within minutes of Allen's addressing the issue of his family's Jewish roots, popular Democrat Party sites, such as the Daily Kos, Daily DD, and, were inundated with such posts as:

"George Allen's New Jew Revue"

"They seriously want us to believe that Allen never knew why his grandfather was thrown in a concentration camp?"

Meanwhile, Allen is reported to have used the "N" word during his college days.

"Allen said he came to Virginia because he wanted to play football in a place where 'blacks knew their place,'" said Dr. Ken Shelton, a white radiologist in North Carolina who played tight end for the University of Virginia football team when Allen was quarterback. "He used the N-word on a regular basis back then."

A second white teammate, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he feared retribution from the Allen campaign, separately claimed that Allen used the word "nigger" to describe blacks. "It was so common with George when he was among his white friends. This is the terminology he used," the teammate said.

It's of course possible that Allen did indeed use the word frequently, but it certainly seems a bit odd. Remember that because of his father's profession (football coach), Allen was probably more accustomed to being around high-achieving young black men than your average white Southerner of the times.

And Ken Shelton has ties to the Democrats. I looked up Ken Shelton in Open Secrets. He donated money in 2000 to Sam Neill (not the actor), a Democrat running for election in North Carolina's 11th Congressional District against the incumbent, Republican Charles H. Taylor. Given that Shelton's profession is described as radiologist in the Salon article, and the donor Ken Shelton's employer is given as Hendersonville Radiology, I think we've got the right man.

You know what this is all about, right? It's not about this election for Virginia Senator, it's about the 2008 Presidential Election. Proof is even in the Salon article:

The radiologist said he decided earlier this year that he would go public with his concerns about Allen if a reporter ever called. About four months ago, when he heard that Allen was a possible candidate for president in 2008, Shelton began to write down some of the negative memories of his former teammate. He provided Salon excerpts of those notes last week.

Uh-huh. "If a reporter ever called." Yeah, I can see that. He just started to write down memories of George Allen, just in case the reporters called.

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
