    Imagine that a person saying something bad about another person here in America! I have never heard of such a thing! What is this country coming to?
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Sometimes I think that Democrats and liberals don't really give a damn about gays, but just keep the Big Tent open for them so they can have more numbers for rally purposes. They do the same thing for blacks.
    You guys piss and moan when people aren't sanctioned to your satisfaction; when one is sanctioned as bad as he can be, you make up hypotheticals and go on your usual anti-liberal screed.

    There's that strawman again.

    Any time someone claims "the left" does this, or "the left" does that, as if it's a hive mind, you can rest assured that person is 100% wrong, 100% of the time.

    That doesn't explain, though, why that same employer hasn't disciplined Bashir for his appalling on-air comment about Sarah Palin. What hypocrisy.
    He had to apologize on air. He likely wasn't suspended because it was his "first offense."

    Perhaps you should learn what the term means if you are insistent on using it....

    A strawman is a fallacy based on an intentional misrepresentation of your opponents' position. Which is exactly what you're doing when you claim "the left" hates everybody.

    Perhaps people should stop using the phrase "the left", it's a generalization.
