The story here is one of hypocrisy, not unforgivable racism.

Here is a remark that was deemed racist and all over the news. Guliani was excoriated for this remark which was called extremely racist by liberals who went into a piranha type feeding frenzy over the remark.
“I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America,” Mr. Giuliani said at the event. “He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up, through love of this country.”www.nytimes.com...

Michelle Obama said that what happened to her at Target was extremely racist and an example of racist behavior in the US. I'm sure you've all heard the story of the horrible racist thing that happened to her. “I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn’t anything new,” Michelle Obama, who is 5’11”, said.
(never dawned on Michelle that maybe the lady asked for her help because she was tall, she automatically took it as a racial insult and has made a public example of the poor short lady who asked for help) Mrs. Obama called this incident "extremely racist".

When Gingrich: "Newt Gingrich, a top contender for the Republican presidential nomination, once again referred to President Obama as the “most successful food stamp president in American history.”
Referencing the fact that more people were getting food stamps under Obama than under any previous president.
The Dems and liberals went wild accusing him of making an extremely racist remark.



Compare these incidents and remarks which was called racist by liberals
who screamed to high heaven, had apoplectic reactions to this incident and these remarks
and decried the incident and remarks as extremely racist
to
what Takai said when he called Thomas a "clown in black face"
and tell me that what Takai said wasn't racist and should not be roundly criticized as racist
when compared to these real world examples
of liberals going wild screaming racism

Which of the three is the most racist?

Of course none of you liberals will acknowledge that Takai's was the most racist because
you can only see that he is liberal and must be defended at all costs
because he holds your political views.

Hypocrisy at it's finest.

So - interesting post.


liberals who screamed to high heaven, had apoplectic reactions


Apoplexy/apoplectic (and other derivatives) seem to be your new favorite words (aside from hate mail and death threats!. Golly gee - did you get hate mail and death threats???? That's horrible!). I don't see anyone going apoplectic, or having apoplexy here.....


For heaven's sake, you all need to breathe. Breathe!!!
Deep breaths! Here's how to do it: Inhale slowly while counting to four - deep into your lungs. That's it. Now, hold in that breath while you count to four. Next, let it out (mindfully) while you count again to four. Rest for a count of four.
Repeat.

It will relax you, and reduce your anxiety level. Truly. Take some deep breaths. Relax. You'll be okay.


We still got your back.

No worries.

You can just take some deep breaths, though. No need to go apoplectic.
(See above for tips.....)

You never cease to surprise me, bunz.

As someone who has had their dignity taken away from them due to repeated traumas and upbringing I stand with George on this one. With dignity one has faith, hope and mental being. Without it I have to question why I'm still here every week.

Just remember this the next time a conservative says something or voices their opinion.

This makes me sad....

I don't want you to feel like you have no dignity.
You DO have inherent dignity - and no one can truly strip you of it.

Welcome to this place.
Arms are wide open.

"white face" isn't a thing. It's not part of our nomenclature so you can't just 'invent' it to try and make a point. Please find actual terms that are used and try again.

www.facebook.com... He has since apologized for his statments

www.theblaze.com... justice/


Actor and liberal icon George Takei issued a lengthy apology on Friday after he called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas “a clown in blackface” over his opposition to the legalization of gay marriage. Takei faced intense backlash from both sides of the political spectrum over the racial remark, which the actor himself admitted was “uncivil.” “He is a clown in blackface sitting on the Supreme Court,” Takei said in the recent interview. “He gets me spat angry. He doesn’t belong there.”
so thats how this one ended up

The dude is a semi nobody but he still shared the screen with Captain Kirk. If he wasn't a homosexual and said an African American was 'blackface' he would be begging for his life and expecting the IRS to burry his racist ass.

The truth hurts. The race card is only cool to lefties when it benefits them.

You are correct, I was wrong.

I should have typed exactly what Takai said - blackface

I realized later I had subconsciously reversed the words because the meaning in this particular case was the same.
I realized my mistake this AM, but the edit function was long expired for me to make corrections.

Anyway, you are correct, I was wrong.

Takai apologized and he said that what he said was inappropriate

So he realized that there was no excuse for his behavior. Good for him.

I know.

But we have to stop the butthurt some time.

So he said it against a great justice.

He offered his opinion. Nothing more.

I just want restraint because the next time a conservative says something, or offers an opinion, the left will jump on that person.

And it would be equally as wrong.

If we're going to rise above the petty PC bullspit, we have to develop thicker skin ourselves and simply reply with a "meh".

Just using the words to make a point,
you don't need to run off the topic of the thread entirely
to send your petty little insults to me personally.
Not even one word about the OP or topic at hand.
A favorite sport of yours, writing threads that only include personal insults.
(Addition): Went back reading what happened while I was asleep, seems you
send Beezer lots of insult only posts with no references to the OP or topic also.

But if that is your thing, go for it, insult away
to make yourself feel better than others.
It will improve your feeling of self-worth
obviously to personally insult people you disagree with, Have fun, enjoy.

By the way, a MOD requested what I said.
He asked for real world examples of liberals
going off the deep end about something far less racist
than Takai's statement. I was simply giving what was requested.
I simply stated the extreme reaction of the liberals
to real world events that were far far far less racist
than Takai's statement. So hyperbole was necessary.


And yes, liberals are known for sending hate email
and death threats to people they disagree with these days,
I see it in the news regularly. Want examples?
Glad to look them up for you and prove this assertion.
Because it only shows that liberals are not the tolerant
and non-judgmental people they claim to be
when it comes to people who disagree with them.
While claiming to be a conservative is to be inherently
intolerant and judgmental.
I find particularly disturbing the climate change leadership
who called for jail or death for those who disagree
with climate change, can look that up for you too if you wish.

Anyway, Takai realized what he said was wrong.

He at least is not a hypocrite,
good for him for admitting he was wrong
and what he said was wrong,
and that he never should have said it.
He realized it and apologized for it. Good man.

Too bad others on this thread felt the need
to defend racism with such gusto.
Simply because the person saying it holds
their political point of view.

Takai did what was right and honorable
admit that he was wrong to say it.

Beezer, you are so wise,

this was the ultimate point I was trying to get across, but you said it so well

"I just want restraint because the next time a conservative says something, or offers an opinion, the left will jump on that person.
