    Once again, the regressives must regress 20 years to prove their point when the liberals can consistently draw on contemporary examples as the regressive foobles are so common and readily at hand. Crawl back into your cave Faux News and try again. BTW... nice job screwing up her career and boo-hiss to an administration with a weak backbone that seems so capable of being bounced around in the surf rather than just cruising above it.
    Ahhh, the liberals belief that no black person is ever racist, and only liberals can "Grow past it".

    Take this nasty woman's comments, and make her white, and the farmer black, would you be so... understanding? Of course you wouldn't.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Is it time for Burning Man? Because this is biggest straw man I've seen in a while.

    So your idea of being "nasty" is causing someone to do a national interview and declare you a lifelong friend?

    Did you hear her speech? No, of course not. You read the post-firing spin and now march on like a good little soldier!

    I agree that it was a speech about something she learned from. I still am bothered by her saying "I sent him to one of his own kind."

    Agreed -however after seeing the entire speech, it's clear she is not an angry racist as the clip lends one to believe. I am as critical of the NAACP as anyone but she had a very positive message to deliver to that group and I thought it outlined her journey from being discriminated against in the early 1960's - to her being discriminatory to others in her early adult life - to her faith and understanding of people regardless of color. Her story is compelling but one cannot come out of her experiences without some scars.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Do you suppose that if you were black and your father was murdered by white people you might say the same thing? Do you have no empathy for this woman?

    Pretty hilarious how you answer your own questions and make up positions for the people you engage. Let me know if you ever want to discuss anything, lol.

    Just like Faux News, you are only seeing what you wish to see... damn the facts.

    For the record, I know plenty of racist black people. She even admitted she ONCE was one. This is a story of her transformation, not of her racism.
