Media Matters Silent On Its Executive’s Racist, Anti-Semitic, Anti-‘Tranny’ Writings

The liberal advocacy organization Media Matters for America has not yet commented on racist and inflammatory writings that its executive vice president Angelo Carusone published on his personal blog. (RELATED: Media Matters Executive’s Racist Blog Posts)

More than 24 hours after The Daily Caller revealed Carusone’s derogatory remarks about Bangladeshi men, “trannies” and “jewry,” the George Soros-funded media monitoring group still has yet to offer an explanation for its executive vice president’s comments. TheDC left a message Tuesday for Media Matters spokeswoman Jess Levin, which was not returned. Carusone also chose not to address the controversy Tuesday, refraining from tweeting anything aside from a retweet of a Gothamist article about train station art and a retweet of the television network Nickelodeon.

Carusone joined Media Matters in December 2010 after founding the “Stop Rush” pressure campaign targeting Rush Limbaugh’s advertisers and spearheading the “Stop Beck” movement focused on conservative talk show host Glenn Beck. Media Matters thrives on flagging politically incorrect statements by conservative journalists for use by mainstream media outlets.

“Uhhh. Did you notice the word attractive? What the fuck is that doing in there? Is the write[r] a tranny lover too?” Carusone wrote on his dormant blog in 2005 in response to an article about a Thai transvestite gang. “Or, perhaps he’s trying to justify how these trannies tricked this Bangladeshi in the first place? Look man, we don’t need to know whether or not they were attractive. The fucking guy was Bangladeshi. And while we’re out, what the hell was he doing with $7,300 worth of stuff. The guy’s Banladeshi!”

Carusone also urged the police officer featured in the article to give advice “Such as: stay away from tranny bars, stay away from placese where Eddie Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. have/are visiting, don’t fucking kiss a transvestite, don’t bring a group of transvestites back to your room, etc…”

Carusone’s comments were covered Tuesday by outlets including the Washington Times, Breitbart News, Western Journalism and Mediaite.

“Maybe the Daily Caller is misinterpreting some items which could be taken any number of ways,” wrote Jazz Shaw in a piece for Hot Air. “How can we possibly know what Angelo meant by that? Sure, the quote came from a article with the title, ‘Tranny Paradise’ which sounds bad at first glance, but I’m guessing that’s also the name of a U-Pull It auto junkyard that specializes in transmissions for muscle cars. And his negative comments about Bangladesh men could have been a commentary on the regressive economic policies of the country and their problematic relationship with Burma. Right?”

The National Center for Transgender Equality also chose not to provide comment on Carusone’s remarks.
