Hate Thought – Liberal Hypocrisy on Display
When do insensitive words destroy reputations?

It all depends.

Celebrity chef Paula Deen was dropped by her TV network, her publisher and many of her corporate partners after she testified in a legal deposition that she used the N-word some 30 years ago. The deposition was filed in a lawsuit against Deen and her brother over allegations of sexual and racial harassment.

Actor Alec Baldwin just recently let loose with a slur of homophobic crudities. Unlike Deen, Baldwin spewed his epithets in the present. He tweeted them publicly, along with threats of physical violence. So far he has avoided Paula Dean's ignominious fate.

Does race determine whether a perceived slur is an actual slur?
It depends.

Some blacks use the N-word in ways supposedly different from those of ill-intentioned white racists. Testimony revealed that the late Trayvon Martin had used the N-word in reference to George Zimmerman and had also referred to Zimmerman as a "creepy-ass cracker" who was following him.

Some members of the media have suggested that we should ignore such inflammatory words and instead focus on whether Zimmerman, who has been described as a "white Hispanic," used coded racist language during his 911 call.

Actor Jamie Foxx offers nonstop racialist speech of the sort that a white counterpart would not dare. At the recent NAACP Image Awards (of all places), Foxx gushed: "Black people are the most talented people in the world." Earlier, on Saturday Night Live, Foxx had joked of his recent role in a Quentin Tarantino movie: "I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that?"

Foxx has not suffered the fate of Paula Deen. He certainly has not incurred the odium accorded comedian Michael Richards, who crudely used the N-word in 2006 toward two African-American hecklers of his stand-up routine.

Has anyone else noticed how pathetically frightened the Republican Party is that Obamacare just might succeed?
I know, we’re all supposed to think the End Is Nigh because the government has decided to give the 10 percent of large employers who don’t insure their workers another 365 days to do so before levying a small penalty. This could not possibly be a reasonable accommodation to protect jobs and businesses, because as everybody knows, this president hates jobs and businesses.
No, this brief delay must be a sign that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act is destined to result in abject failure. After all, that’s what every Congressional Republican with the ability to hit send on a press release has told us, over and over again, hoping that repeating their prediction enough times will somehow make it true.
But here’s my question: if Republicans are so confident Obamacare will end badly, why not just shut up about it? It’s not like they have the votes to repeal the law—a math problem they still haven’t solved after 37 different tries. Their appeal to the Supreme Court ended in defeat at the hands of a conservative chief justice. And now the bulk of the plan will begin to take effect in just a few months.
At this point, why not sit back and wait for this crazy experiment to self-destruct? Why not let President Obama and the Democrats reckon with the millions of angry Americans who will undoubtedly hate their new insurance or their new insurance protections?
Because Republicans are terrified that Obamacare could actually work. Already, the law has provided 54 million Americans free access to preventive services like check-ups and mammograms. More than six million seniors have saved more than six billion dollars on their prescriptions. Nearly thirteen million consumers have received more than one billion dollars in rebates from insurance companies that had overcharged them. There are more than three million happy young adults who have been allowed to stay on their parents’ health insurance until they turn 26. And in California, a state that represents one-fifth of the U.S. economy, we’ve learned that premiums for the law’s new insurance options have come in lower­ than expected.
As these successes build, Republicans are naturally coping with their fear the only way they know how: by scaring the hell out of everyone else.

Ok. Let's consider your point.

Where will the money come from to pay for it?

If you can't answer that question, then you agree that ObamaKare is doomed from the outset.

The fact that Marxism is doomed to failure at the outset becsause it is diametrically opposed to genetically programmed human instinct is a reason for anyone to conclude ObamaKare will fail.
When ObamaKare bankrupts the economy, where will the money come from to pay for it?
It's obvious ObamaKare will fail. The only variable is, how long will you clowns continue to put leeches on the patient to cure them.

Hate Thought – Liberal Hypocrisy on Display
When do insensitive words destroy reputations?

It all depends.

Whites at times seem exempt from any fallout over the slurring of blacks.

Democratic Minnesota state representative Ryan Winkler recently tweeted of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas's vote to update the Voting Rights Act: "VRA majority is four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas."

Winkler's implication was that four of the jurists were veritable racists, while Thomas was a sellout. After a meek apology, nothing much happened to Winkler.

Winkler's "Uncle Thomas" racial slur was mild in comparison to the smear of Justice Thomas by MSNBC talking head and African-American professor Michael Eric Dyson, who made incendiary on-air comments invoking Hitler and the holocaust.

So the Liberal Media pushes homosexuality into the viewer's face maybe 40 times a day and when the viewers complain about the constant din of homosexuality and point out rightfully that it's not normal, along comes a little people like Emoron to say "Your prurient interest in this borders on a perversion".

You missed commenting on this. Do you think the judge was racist when she decided to violate the Constitution and bully Zimmerman in the courtroom?

When do you not have the right to remain silent?
Obviously, the right to remain silent is universal. There does not exist the person or position that can take that right away from anyone, to include any judge.

The defense is still presenting its case and has not concluded and rested.
The judge obviously brought into the case information from outside the courtroom, that may or may not have been more than mere rumor, and used it to badger the defendant and to get a premature declaration from the defendant.
The judge acted unconstitutionally when she insisted that the defendant speak.
The defendant has the right to remain silent.
The defendant can remain silent as long as they desire.
If the defense rests, the judge may ask the defendant for clarification and confirmation that they are exercising their 5th Amendment right.
The defendant has the right to remain silent.

A clearer case for mistrial does not exist.

Are you going to join the riots when Zimmerman is pronounced not guilty?

the Democrat's culture is RIFE with hypocrisy.

Hate Thought – Liberal Hypocrisy on Display
When do insensitive words destroy reputations?

It all depends.

Does profanity against women destroy celebrity careers?

Not really.

TV talk-show host Bill Maher used two vulgar female slang terms to reference Sarah Palin, without any major consequences.

Those Palin slurs were mild in comparison to late-night television icon David Letterman's crude riff that Palin's then-14-year old daughter was impregnated by baseball star Alex Rodriguez.

(And who can forget when the libs punished Imus for using the words "nappy-haired ho's" on the air but it was ok for Jessie Jackson to call NYC "hymie town" with no condemnation from the libs).

In contrast, when talk-show host Rush Limbaugh demeaned activist Sandra Fluke as a "slut," outrage followed. Sponsors were pressured to drop Limbaugh. Some did. Unlike the targeted Palin, Fluke became a national icon of popular feminist resistance.

So how do we sort out all these slurs and the contradictory consequences that follow them?

Apparently, racist, sexist or homophobic words themselves do not necessarily earn any rebuke. Nor is the race or gender of the speaker always a clue to the degree of outrage that follows.

INSTEAD, THE PERCEIVED IDEOLOGY OF THE PERPETRATOR ofIS WHAT MATTERS MOST.

Maher and Letterman, being good liberals, could hardly be crude sexists. But when the conservative Limbaugh uses similar terms, it must be a window into his dark heart.

It's apparently OK for whites or blacks to slur conservative Clarence Thomas in racist terms. Saying anything similar of the late liberal Justice Thurgood Marshall would have been blasphemous.

In short, we are dealing not with actual word crimes, but with supposed THOUGHT CRIMES.

The liberal media and popular culture have become our self-appointed thought police.

Politics determines whether hate speech is a reflection of real hate or just an inadvertent slip, a risqué joke or an anguished reaction to years of oppression.

Poor Paula Deen. She may protest accusations of racism by noting that she supported Barack Obama's presidential campaigns. But the media instead fixates on her deep Southern accent and demeanor, which supposedly prove her speech was racist in a way that left-wing and cool Jamie Foxx purportedly could never be.

We cannot forgive conservative Mel Gibson for his despicable, drunken anti-Semitic rants. But it appears we can pardon liberal Alec Baldwin for his vicious homophobic outbursts.

The former smears are judged by the thought police to be typical, but the latter slurs are surely aberrant.

The crime is not hate speech, but hate thought -- a state of mind that apparently only self-appointed liberal referees can sort out.

Indiana Fails Religious Freedom

In Indiana, where same-sex marriage is illegal, the state criminal code apparently punishes religious leaders who conduct gay marriage ceremonies:

The law also penalizes a clergyman, judge, mayor, city clerk or town clerk-treasurer who solemnizes a marriage between two people of the same gender. Those who conduct a gay marriage ceremony can be charged with a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.

This has got to be unconstitutional, right? As you know, I don’t believe in same-sex marriage, and hope it remains illegal in Indiana. But for heaven’s sake, if a liberal church or synagogue wants to solemnize vows between gay couples and call it marriage, that’s their right, and the state should butt out, plain and simple. Nobody is saying the state must recognize those vows as legitimate, but if people within the religion want to do so, that’s their business.

This is a religious liberty issue — and Indiana conservatives are on the wrong side of it. If we conservatives don’t want the state telling our churches we have to marry same-sex couples, then we should stand up for the right of liberal churches to follow their own consciences within the confines of their communions. We may believe these churches are in serious error about same-sex marriage, but our own religious liberty depends on defending their right to be wrong. If we aren’t willing to stand up for them now, they won’t take seriously our future attempts to defend our own autonomy on religious liberty grounds.

As long as they weren't republicans or conservatives who want to make the federal government more accountable and less intrusive, they'd vote for anyone. They voted for a closet Marxist. Why wouldn't they vote for an avowed communist or another Castro? We have members of Congress who would stand solidly behind both.
Some would even vote for Joe Biden who made sure we all knew Obama has a "big stick".
At least we'd look forward to President Biden's speeches and what he'd say next.
Sure you hypocritical twit, forcing a woman to submit to a vaginal ultrasound as a condition of terminating a pregnancy isn't government intrusion at all is it? Or forcing someone who finds themselves in need of public assistance to go through a drug screening isn't either.
President Obama hasn't proposed anything that's in the least bit Marxist except in your delusional little mind.
