This is another good example of the double standard when it comes to name calling just like with the N word.
Yeah - sometimes I click too fast for my own good. But never fear - I just got rid of my own "double standard."
I know, but my action WAS consistent with my profile icon - Inspector Sledge Hammer - who always shot first and asked questions afterwards.
It's just my itchy clicker-finger....
This kinda like the staement the obamanator made today. The young man that was shot in Florida "Trayvon" Looked like he could have "my" son. What good is suppossed to come from that statement? How does that not imply race based comments. I guess double standards dont apply...
Yes - in these days of insensitivity on bumper stickers, it does seem like the President was unnecessarily inflammatory. What would the mainstream media have said if Dubya commented on the senseless murder of a white youth by a black Neighborhood Watch participant by saying something like: "If I had a son, he'd look like (victim's name)." It also clear from the background in this case that it is highly racially charged. See:
The President's comments look too much like he is playing to his base in an election year. I would have hoped for better than that from the Chief Executive.
But at least things are better here than they apparently are in Germany - according to Ahmad Wali Siddiqui, an al Qaeda recruit who was recently extolling the "positive aspects" of living in IRAN (as opposed to living in Germany) at his trial for participation in one of Osama bin Laden's final terror plots. During a wiretapped telephone call to his mother, Siddiqui related that:
"Life in Germany is not good. You live with gays, lesbians, and Jews. Islam rules here.”
At the end of the day, "rotten parents" or not, the comment made towards Bristol was just as inapprioprite as the rush comment but is nor considered "news worthy" to pay attention to. Wrong is wrong but our current "leader" only seems t address what will provide him withthe most bang for the buck.
Yes - I'm afraid that they consider treating Bristol Palin the same as Sandra Fluke as giving "aid and comfort to the enemy."
