    Actually, I don't hate her at all. I just think she's from a different generation where certain language was acceptable and sometimes old people have a hard time adapting to change.

    But if you don't know what "working people" means in a political context, I can't help you. Too much remedial catch-up required.
    oh!...you're talking about those who work to beat the system and make a living sitting on their butt with a hand out, not those who are gainfully employeed...gotcha!..caryy on.

    Um, the posts where you stated a two faced double standard are within this thread, the first part of the double standard is the above quote where you complained that "PC strikes again" because she had been fired for her racist comments, those who complained, we who are "pc", WERE being intolerant of her racist comments.

    So again, which is it? *Should we be intolerant of all racists, regardless of color or *are we going to get labeled as being "pc" when we complain about Deen's racism?

    Are you capable of acknowledging your contradictory, two faced, double standard contained within this thread.....or are you going to continue to deny it, ignore it, play dumb........?
    Here-in lies the dilemma which has been tormenting your poor liberal soul_

    In reality, there is absolutely nothing contradictory about my comment; only your interpretation of it_

    You asked- *"Should we be "intolerant of all racists, regardless of color""?

    I reply- Yes, we should be intolerant of all racists, regardless of color__Invariably!

    You asked- *"are we going to get labeled as being "pc" when we complain about Deen's racism"?

    I reply- Those who are critical of one form of racism while ignoring another will indeed be labeled "PC"!

    I wasn't complaining about people's intolerance of Deen's racism, only about those who single it out!

    This will continue to be my policy until all state sanctioned and socially accepted racism ceases to exist_

    True, but I was simply responding to another post which had raised the issue of "black racism"_

    I heard a report that Paula Deen actually voted for and was a big fan of Barack Obama_

    I personally don't believe she's a racist nor that she has been at least for a very long time_

    Hating someone because of the color of their skin is something a moron might be guilty of_

    Miss Paula doesn't strike me as being all that stupid, other than political affiliation of course_

    Yes, you were demonstrating your intolerance of *some* racists and yes, I *have* noticed that some posters are intolerant of *some* racists, but not *all* racists

    Usually while complaining about how others are only intolerant of *some* racists, when they should be intolerant of *all* racists

    Do you see what I did there?

    She did manage to start several successful businesses, so she certainly isn't stupid. I'd be willing to give her the benefit of the doubt about being a racist too.

    She wasn't fired. Her contract wasn't renewed. Big difference.
