Brags about dancing on the graves of conservatives
Stephen Lemons is a columnist for the giveaway Phoenix New Times tabloid. Fitting the definition of a rag, it’s worth exactly what people pay for it. After years of spewing hatred aimed at conservative elected officials, Lemons is taking his sour tour on the road, moving to Alabama. He describes his new gig this way:
“I’m leaving due to an offer from another outlet, as the grown-ups say, an organization that sues the pants off racists and gives their property to minorities.”
In Lemons’ small-minded, self-loathing world, those who don’t march in lockstep with him qualify as racists.
We are intentionally not posting a link to his farewell column. For most of us, taking a shower at work is not an option, and readers of his column would definitely feel the urge to lather up with a disinfectant.
Lemons is a cockroach who has made a living creeping through dung heaps. If he finds nothing other than his own droppings, he’ll construct something by deadline in order to sensationalize the mundane and satisfy his own decadent interests.
He is fond of flinging words made up by the left to further their causes. “Nativist” gets a workout, as has “birther.” He is not above portraying contrivances as fact.
Stephen Lemons insults a former Arizona governor as a “pathetic, grizzled, uneducated boob,” saying he looks forward to returning to Arizona to dance on the grave of that still agile and healthy Republican, in the same way he claims he previously did on the tombstone of U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms. He finagles the opportunity to refer to the Republican senator who died in 2008, as a racist, but withholds any mention of Democrat Sen. Robert Byrd, who had once been an active member of the Ku Klux Klan.
Hate monger Lemons, routinely decimates former 6-term elected Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and thanks the Phoenix New Times for giving him “carte blanche to wreak as much havoc as possible on the octogenarian autocrat.” Below a cheery photo of himself, Lemons is quoted, “Just the thought of Arpaio being booked makes me smile.”
This is how vermin Stephen Lemons signed off his final column:
“Sometimes, cutting a jig over the corpses of mean-spirited, race-bating troglodytes — once they’ve passed of natural causes — is the best you get in this life. And I’ll take it.”
He’ll be a real asset to the radical left-wing hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center, his new gig in Montgomery Alabama.
