The left has long since lost their shame - assuming, of course, that they ever had any to begin with. But if there’s one thing they have in spades, it’s idiocy. And, perhaps, the never-ending tenacity to find rock bottom and start digging for a basement.
Proving yet again that nothing is off-limits when it comes to pushing their rabid agenda, Deadpan columnist - and I’m using this term generously here - Carron J. Phillips openly targeted a child who was seen during a recent Kansas City Chiefs game sporting what Phillips claimed was “blackface.” He pointed to selectively angled screenshots of the kid taken during the game showed the boy, who couldn’t be more than 12, sporting a Native American headdress and black face paint atop a red Chiefs jersey, all in support of his team.
There was just one problem: the kid wasn’t just wearing black paint, though even that wouldn't have been nearly as offensive as Phillips here likes to pretend. Other angles coincidentally ignored by Deadspin show the other half of the child’s face painted red - red and black, the colors of the Kansas City Chiefs.
But to Phillips, who’s apparently so narcissistic that he's decided there’s a racist devil lurking in every shadow, this was not merely a young child in full-on game day dress. This was a “fan” who’d donned “blackface,” a term used for white people who paint themselves black or brown in a caricature of people of color, as an intentionally snub against Native Americans and blacks.
“It takes a lot to disrespect two groups of people at once. But on Sunday afternoon in Las Vegas, a Kansas City Chiefs fan found a way to hate Black people and the Native Americans at the same time,” Phillips wrote.
The disingenuous hack continued to call the kid a “fan” throughout the article, pausing only briefly to openly question whether the child was in fact a “kid” or a “young adult” when photos clearly show a prepubescent boy. He then turned his ire to the entire NFL, blasting the league for not issuing a statement on the obvious racism and hatred of this child and his donning of team colors.
“As of now, the league hasn’t released a statement on what took place in the stands in Las Vegas on Sunday. That photo of that fan floating around on the Internet is beyond a bad look for a league, while simultaneously being what should be expected from the NFL,” Phillips added.
The reaction was swift - and not in Phillips’ or Deadspin’s favor.
A grown man really wrote an entire article calling this kid's outfit disrespectful and is now advocating to get the Chiefs name canceled because "racism"— Savanah Hernandez (@sav_says_) November 28, 2023

This race-hustling loser is tripling-down on attacking a young kid as “Racist!” for wearing Kansas City Chiefs face-paint.— 🇺🇸 Mike Davis 🇺🇸 (@mrddmia) November 28, 2023
These bottom-feeders do this because we let them.
We lower our standards to appease them.
Stop cowing to them.
Ridicule and ostracize them instead. https://t.co/DMgVpMBXuY pic.twitter.com/lng7N8vFef

Clearly having been called out for his deception and general stupidity, Phillips doubled down on his stance, claiming that wearing both red and black wasn’t a sign that the kid was merely supporting his team through their colors, but instead meant he - this young child here - was deliberately targeting two separate ethnicities for insult.
For the idiots in my mentions who are treating this as some harmless act because the other side of his face was painted red, I could make the argument that it makes it even worse.— Carron J. Phillips (@carronJphillips) November 27, 2023

“For the idiots in my mentions who are treating this as some harmless act because the other side of his face was painted red, I could make the argument that it makes it even worse,” Phillips wrote on X, before restricting who could reply to the post.
Which is usually a telltale sign that even a blatant idiot is second-guessing his own argument.
Unfortunately for moronic leftists with nothing better to do with their time than rant about sports fans in greasy face paint, this is nothing new. Just a few weeks ago, a white middle schooler in California was suspended from school and banned from future sporting events after showing up to a local football game in black paint that barely covered half his face.
At the end of the day, if you look at a child - or any person, really, but especially a kid - dressed up in game day paint and see a hateful racist, it’s time to do a little soul-searching.
Again, assuming you have one to sort through in the first place.
