Alec Baldwin Denies Everything, NYPD Investigates

He can’t be racist! He gives Money to black people!

“I find it ironic that my foundation’s last grant was $50,000 to the Arthur Ashe Learning Center,” Baldwin tweeted.

Which is to say, his foundation gave money to a charity named after a black person! So there!

TMZ says they can’t hear the racial slur on the audio recording, for whatever that’s worth.

The NYPost also wonders about the meaning of “Ralston,” referring to Miller (the black photographer in question), on one of Baldwin’s now-deleted tweets.

“Moments after I tweet about the Post, Ralston, the ex-crackhead ‘photographer’ shows up at my door w 1 of Murdoch’s nieces in tow.”

He also tweeted, “Ralston claims he’s ex NYPD!! That can’t be!!! Ex NYPD don’t become crackhead, ex jailhouse paparazzi!”

He removed the posts from his Twitter feed soon after.

It is unclear why Baldwin called the photographer “Ralston.”

I assumed that it was some kine of angered bastardization of “Rastus” the somewhat archaic anti-black slur referring to the guy on the Cream of Wheat box (“Ralston” being a different cereal company). A couple of commenters on DListed came to the same conclusion (scroll down). It may be a stretch but it fits the facts.

The actor has since made a hyper-anticlimactic exit from Twitter.

Holy Crap, is Alec Baldwin Racist

I tweeted about this earlier today, but it bears shouting from the rooftops. How heinous do you have to be before someone besides Breitbart notices the assured ease with which you throw racial slurs at people?

A credentialed reporter for one of the oldest American newspapers asks a public figure a question on a public street. The person grabs the reporter (a young woman) by the arm and tells her he wants her to “choke to death.” He then turns to the credentialed photographer for the same newspaper (who happens to be black) and calls him a “coon” and a “crackhead.”
Later, on Twitter, Baldwin continued the racially charged verbal attack on the photographer, erroneously calling him “Ralston”: (Tweets have since been deleted)

“Ralston claims he’s ex NYPD!! That can’t be!!! Ex NYPD don’t become crackhead, ex jailhouse paparazzi!”

It goes without saying that Baldwin gets a pass for all of this.

Baldwin is one of the Left’s biggest stars, a celebrity who gleefully trashed Andrew Breitbart as a “festering boil on the anus of public discourse” and publicly mulls elected office every few months to the oohs and ahhs of his liberal fan base. He’s done enough in the public space to warrant plenty of shame, from that leaked voice message to his then-preteen daughter to his violent outburst aboard an American Airlines plane.

UPDATE: Alec Fillmore?
