Why is anyone above criticism? When you put people above criticism, you are trying to imply they are untouchable, akin to saints or even gods.


That's the impression I get from you and most conservatives concerning trump and his family.

Yes dishonesty and hypocrisy

Like firing a woman for commenting on black face, while continuing to employ two people that have actually worn black face

I agree this hypocrisy need to end

I have been consistent defending jokes and comments from all sides, Kathy griffin, Eric holder, the play where trump was killed, etc.

I am tired of being lectured by people in power about what is racism and what isn’t when they selectively apply their own definitions to what benefits them

I will continue to call out real racist acts like the synagogue shooter or the kids the kidnaoped the handicap teen for being white and abusing him, and continue to call out yjenover use of calling people racist

Because you don't read very close.

I've always said I don't like him, but I did like Obama.

Those things are quite aside from agreeing or disagreeing with policy though.

How so?

I assume you would agree with that seeing as how you and I are both against hypocrisy

All I am asking for is consistency

If nbc wants to take a moral stand and fire people because black face is racist, then they should fire all of there employees who have worn black face or defended it

Otherwise, there accusations of racism are hollow and meaningless as they are selectively applied

The same goes for Fox News or any other company

The same goes for political parties

The idea that an action is racist if one person does it, but not if another does it is hypcritiyand belittles real racism we should all be challenging

People have made racism a partisan issue. This is the conversation you want to have, and I want no part of it

This should be the one thing we could all agree on together. It should unite us

The Political Correctness Taliban made it impossible for the left to have an opinion. In the process - they also made it impossible for people on the right to have an opinion. Good work. I can have no opinion as part of a conversation with you. You either understand this or you don't. Or you can't

What she said was wrong. She said it - and she turned the knife while she said it. That part of the morning on NBC is decidedly not political. She couldn't resist. She's a victim of her own weaknesses

You want to make this about the leftist PC police and racism instead of Megyn Kelly's own stupidity

I was being sincere. What I said was not an insult to you

I take your post to mean that you're caving and don't actually have a reply

So, you resort to insults

It wasn’t an insult at all

I thought you wanted to discuss the hypocrisy and dishonesty around these conversations

You then clarified you do not, and instead want to focus on Kelly being an idiot, so that is fine by me. I concur she is dumb, so nothing more to say

Where is the insult I made to you?

Yes exactly

They are willing to resort to being hypocrites and levying allegations of racism merely for their own benefit

That is what is concerning about this story to me

Listen - if you aren't gong to be honest even about this there really is no point

Even here at ATS we should have some standards. Some of us - at least

So wait, when you claimed you weren’t insulting me I give you the benefit of the doubt, yet you are unwilling to give me the same?



You take it how you will, I don’t care

But I wasn’t insulting you

I thought you were concerned about hypocrisy, but you clarified you don’t want to have a conversation on that

If you think that is an insult, I feel very sorry for you

He asked you what you found insulting, and I have yet to see you answer. Are you going to tell him or not?

It is possible that you took offense to something he said that he honestly never meant as an insult.

If you don't bother to tell someone where they offended when they specifically ask, then you're as much a part of the problem as you perceive them to be. If you won't have that dialogue, then there is no communication, and there is no point in engaging.

What? Some people get treated differently than others doing the same thing depending on who they are?

This is an earth shattering hypothesis.
