Angry activists gathered outside a Richmond, Virginia strip club decrying abomination! and sounding alarm over the deteriorating standards in America. Prudish church ladies? No. It was the NAACP. The self-described libertarian owner of Club Velvet, Mr. Samuel J.T. Moore III, had unfurled an Obama as The Joker banner outside his building.
“This country is going to hell in a handbag,“ Moore said, “and the current administration is making things irreversibly worse.“
Mr. Moore is not the ideal champion of liberty.
Moore’s club is awaiting a state Alcoholic Beverage Control hearing on alleged violations. Earlier this year Moore was convicted of three misdemeanor charges related to having sex with a minor and another woman at his apartment in the club, and filming it illegally.
The bold Mr. Moore sent one of his “dancers”, Kaitlyn McGee, out to read a statement.
“Mr. Moore would like to say that anyone who believes that his banner is racist is an ignoramus.”
The ignoramuses from the NAACP said–
“…the Joker banner was typical of what they called escalating attacks on the president – from depictions of Obama as Hitler at rallies to South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson’s “You lie!” outburst during Obama’s recent nationally televised address to Congress.”
“Racism is as American as apple pie,” Khalfani [King Salim Khalfani, president of the Virginia NAACP] said. “The presence of a president that as African blood is very, very troublesome to many in this country.”
Speaking for herself, waitress and dancer McGee said–
“As far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t really bother me,” she said. “You could say a lot worse things about him.”
It isn’t clear from the reporting to which man she is referring. You could say that about either. In fact, I think it is a neat response to the race card. Just imagine the reaction.
There are an array of jokers in this mix at implausibly named Shockoe Bottom, but the assault on free speech is no laughing matter. No situation is too small—or too ludicrous—for the enemies of liberty.
