Quigley says
This is a free speech board, but I find your speech extremely repugnant. I’m married to an Asian woman and have Asian kids. I don’t appreciate your racism.


After all this time something is repugnant to a Trump supporter ?

Once again bear in mind this is the exact same language and attitudes favored by members of the base, especially in the heartland however the more enlightened crowd now refers to "Orientals" - just sayin.

Someone is poking fun and someone else doesn't realize it or they do but is trying to spin it to their advantage.

Pretty much sounds like an overblown case of Viture Signaling to me along with a healthy overdose of pretend outrage for the sake of things.

Is the racism from Potus and his staff okay then ? Just checking, trying to figure out where the line is supposed to be drawn.

Emmys can be picked up after the thread runs in course. Looks like we have finalists from Nevada and California so far in the fake outrage department

Speak of the devil - right on cue - couldn't have guessed the timing any better

Let’s see, you’re saying that racial epithets are okay because they were used commonly sixty years ago? That’s an interesting point to be making.
And further, you claim that calling someone a traitor over the ethnicity of his spouse is fine?

This is too funny.

Once again - the person who wrote this is taking a not so subtle swipe at the "enlightened" Trump supporters on the forum simply using the same words that were in use then but still in use today amongst a large segment of the population and a majority of a certain block of voters who happen to also support Trump.

There are openings on America's Got Talent right now. Perhaps the finalists in the fake outrage department can put on a display of emotion for the judges.

Maybe more than one can share the top prize, you never know.

Mad as I am about the horrible racism displayed on this thread by Aphroman and Feux, I support freedom of speech so they can say what they wish. I’d never support censoring speech because it offends someone, which is a much different approach than they’ve taken many times in the past.

Roseanne should have claimed that her account was hacked. With all the recent examples of plausible deniability, how could she be so stupid? She drifted into politics and proved she's a pathetic amateur.

I never liked Roseanne when I was a kid. Never watched her show. Just thought she was some crabby old fat lady. Sort of remember some outrage when she grabbed her crotch during the National Anthem but I didn't see it. That sort of sealed it for me.

Now I WUV her!

WTF is so wrong with the comment. It's funny as shit! Is Valerie black or something? She sure doesn't look like it. She definitely looks like that chimp lady from planet of the apes which to me didn't seem based on black people. Maybe the darker apes but not the chimps or the orangs.

People need to get a life and stop being such sensitive hypocrites!

In fact, blaming people simply by their membership in an ethnic group is the perfect definition of racism.

So anyone who accuses "whites" of racism simply because they are white is actually the perfect definition of a racist himself.

Someone with a lot of insight noted this exact same behavior way back in about the year 33 AD:

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

IT's true. But at the same time, I don't think ABC can be blamed for not tolerating such trollish nastiness from their big star. THey have an image to maintain (like starbucks - it's business partially - public relations ) and they actually need to be sensitive about promoting civility and some semblance of manners in the public sphere.

Somebody has to take action towards turning the ugliness of online and social media discourse around.

Our President certainly isn't going to set an example for the people. What, should we just root for a cold civil war getting ever worse (term suggested by the the commentary Hericlitus poster in another thread (Dan Calrlin) ).

This could be framed as a backlash against the kind of online ugliness promoted by Russian trolls some of which possibly occur as comments here on Patrick.net by people (I ignore) posing as programmers. You can tell what their goals are, by the degree to which they've pumped up the hate and invective since they got what they supposedly wanted, i.e., Trump kicked in. Not that a lot of the ugliness and hate promoted by trolls online isn't home grown.

Nation’s Conservatives Blame Ambien For Decision To Adopt Roseanne As Political Spokesperson.

After Roseanne Barr’s recent rise to political stardom and subsequent implosion caused by a racist tweet, the nation’s conservatives almost immediately blamed prescription sedative Ambien for their poor decision-making in adopting her as a political icon for their movement.

Conservatives claim to have been “Ambien-politicking” when they made the decision to hold Roseanne up as some sort of cultural mascot, and asked for the country to “forget this ever happened.”

“Guys, we did something unforgivable so don’t defend us,” a leading conservative spokesperson said in a somber press conference. “It was two in the morning and we were on heavy doses of Ambien, so we decided to go ahead and throw all of our chips on Roseanne as our very own Hollywood political pundit. It was egregious and indefensible. We made a mistake we wish we hadn’t.”

Republicans further asked people not to try to defend their blunder.

At publishing time, the maker of Ambien had distanced itself from American conservatives with a tweet, saying “While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, impulsively installing an unstable, ill-informed celebrity as a political mascot simply because she vocally supports your president is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.”

This whole You can't say a black person looks a monkey but it's OK to say a White Person looks like an Orangutan.
Isn't racism on the offenders part, but it is pure hyperbole on the Liberal's part who does nothing to mitigate the Monkey claims.
They don't dispute the likeness, they instead defer you not to say that. Rather than calling it for what it is, hyperbole. And if the person who made those claims about primate likeness honestly believes that. Then they are ignorant and not worthy of any debate. Telling people it's OK to call white people primates, but not black people because you might hurt their fragile feelings. Just perpetuates the whole Eugenics debate. Which Liberals want they get a lot of political mileage out of that. Racist Fucks!

That's different. Cosby may be a convicted serial sexual predator (even without a private plane) but he's still a POC. There is a hierarchy of disenfranchisement which must be taken into account.

Speaking of double standards and hypocrisy, Trump invited Ted Nugent to the White HOuse even though he called Hillary a "toxic Cunt."

So how all the outrage on the right about Samantha Bee ?

Nugent also said this about Clinton: “This bitch is nothing but a two-bit whore for Fidel Castro.”

Now that I think about it, could TPB be Ted Nugent ?

In Bee's case she apologized, saying that she had “crossed a line” and “deeply regret[s] it.” We can wait for hell to freeze over before Nugent apologizes and he'll probably be invited to the white house again, if he talks about killing liberals some more.
