Blowhard Bill Donohue
Bill Donohue — The divorced man who fashioned himself as the great defender of the Catholic Church is an anti-LGBTQ bigot and a racist.

Blowhard Bill Donohue of the Catholic League knows no shame.

One of Donohue’s latest offerings is titled “JUSTIFYING RACISM” (BB is big on all caps). Here are the two leading paragraphs:

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the growing trend of racism against white people:

A long-standing liberal tenet—that we should condemn all forms of prejudice and discrimination equally—came under attack in the 1960s when President Lyndon Johnson decided that equal opportunity was outdated: he said the new goal should be equal outcomes.

The “growing trend of racism against white people” doesn’t exist and isn’t growing. There is, however, an increasing tide of racism against people of color inspired in part by Former Guy. Moreover, there is an enormous increase in anti-Semitism in our society.

Furthermore, President Johnson never said anything like that. Of course Blowhard Bill’s Bullshit is not supported with a direct quote and a link.

Donohue goes on to write:

On December 27, the New York State Department of Health issued a new policy on the distribution of anti-Covid treatments. To be a recipient, the patient must “have a medical condition or other factors that increase their risk for serious illness.” One of the risk factors is being a “non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity,” meaning that white people have been shoved to the back of the line.

A doctor who justified the racism said that blacks and Hispanics were harder hit with Covid, which is true. It is also true that being overweight makes it more likely that one will acquire Covid, and both minority groups are more likely to be overweight than whites. Is that a function of racism, or is it a volitional outcome?

“Bill Donohue, of the Catholic League, is an unapologetic anti-LGBTQ bigot. That is ‘volitional.'” Donohue is clearly a white supremacist as well.

Donohue is wed to the belief that he is much cleverer than he really is. What he is trying to say (ad absurdum) is that Black people are at greater risk for COVID because they are more overweight than white people.

“Volitional?” What was that about racism?

Volitional relates to something done willfully. Therefore, adding insult to injury, Blowhard Bill is saying that Black people want to be fat. Oh, and has anyone looked at Mr. Donohue’s girth lately?

There is also the logical fallacy of the excluded middle. How about all of those Black people who are at greater risk for COVID and are not overweight? About two-thirds of the adult population are either obese or overweight. Black people don’t have anything close to a monopoly on corpulence.

Furthermore, for any of this to make any sense at all, Donohue would need a statistical breakdown by weight distribution. He ain’t got that.

Bill Donohue, of the Catholic League is an unapologetic anti-LGBTQ bigot. That is “volitional.” Donohue is clearly a white supremacist as well.
