Roy finds a definitive passive-aggressive yet insane post from Glenn Reynolds:

Speaking of urban agony, by the way — if folks on the right were truly Macchiavellian, they’d be joining the critics of stop-and-frisk. The big Blue enclaves are where the crime and racial strife mostly are; letting those get worse would probably benefit folks on the right. Luckily for the hipsters, righties are too principled for that sort of “heightening the contradictions” thing.

This is…amazing stuff.

  • I suppose “racist authoritarianism” is, in its own way, a “principle.”  Whether adhering to it merits praise is a judgment I leave to the reader.
  • Note how this alleged “libertarian” takes for granted that Bloomberg’s arbitrary stop-and-frisk policies are effective and implicitly justified.
  • The assumption that racially discriminatory arbitrary searches reduce racial strife is even more special.  Has Reynolds written a column about how Shelby County is the ultimate fulfillment of Martin Luther King’s vision yet?
  • The 2011 murder rate in the northeast: 3.9.  In the south: 5.5.   But, in fairness, racial strife is entirely unknown below the Mason-Dixon line.
  • People were more likely to be victims of a violent gun crime [in Tennessee] than in any other state in the nation.”  Damn those hipster liberal coastal elitists and their opposition to arbitrary police actions!
  • I actually believe that Reynolds thinks that everyone who lives in a major urban area is a “hipster.”
