Our Mindless Media Driven Drivel: Roseann & Sam B

Postby bobbo_the_Pragmatist » Mon Jun 04, 2018 12:45 am

Irked me each time, and now on Fox News Sunday (although Left TV is doing it too) making a complete equivalency between what RoseAnn said and what Samantha Bee said. RA called an African American an Ape == a racist demeaning comment that the target could do nothing about. SB called Iwanka a c**t for the actions of Trump re separating kiddies from their illegal/asylum seeking parents==a very strong condemnation of the VOLUNTARY ACTIONS of Trump.

One is racist, the other is sexist. The first targets a person for something they CAN DO nothing about, the second targets a person that COULD DO something about and chooses not to.

Two Huge difference....yet after days I have not heard a single commentary making any distinction.

Its the culture of outrage...........and no thinking. The media should do better, the open question is: can they?

Maybe Bee could have stung with a "bitch" or a "sow" - ya know, stuck with the presidentially approved animal theme...

I could understand the outrage if it was feckless c**ts upset about being compared to Ivanka.

Eggs, Oleg: excellent. Nice oblique comments.

G: really in kneejerk mode. The talking point is that Roseanne was kicked off tv BECAUSE she supports Trump....so, no not conservative bashing.....just the opposite. Another point: RA was purely her own unneccessary attempt to troll for hits whereas SB was A SCRIPTED MONOLOGUE: totally the responsibility of the Network and near zero for herself. I suppose there is a faction of people that want to make all words/concepts/ideas open for discussion? so, they pushed on the use of "c..t" for its liberating effect. and I did see some response from some tv personality that said "c..ts" are beautiful or something to that effect. Now...there are books, movies, plays where the once banned "Vagina" is the title and the subtext. There is absolutely no difference between V and C except what people want to make of it. I prefer to think of them as slimy portals to a sense of immortality, but that is too many words.

Heh, heh.... the "battle" of the sexes. The pros and cons. The fears and dreams. The Madonna and the Whore. Everything revealing, the lack of balance.........and acceptance. Hmmmmmmmm......I see no reason for society to accept the notion of the N-word, or Blacks being Apes.........but I do see some value in the C-word losing its sting. How about that? I'm coming (sic re the other, not used) around.............

No, you have to treat anyone who states this, most likely hateful liberals/"progressives" when they self-identifyas such, by gleaning as much of their personal job information from them off social media, and then getting them fired and/ornot rehired. Show these ignorant, arrogant, stubborn, meddling people that they will not be rewarded on the backs of decent people.

Bobbie looks rather low to me. Not pragmatic at all to go out of your way to bother people. There can, and even should be, deserved pay back for such meddlesome behavior.

If your contention is that the C-word is appropriate for use condemning politicians for making the wrong choices, why was the C-word not employed against Trump himself?

I'd just like to add that Samantha Bee apologized for using the cunt-w*rd, said it was inappropriate, and promised to never do it again.

Ummmmm.……...because he doesn't have a {!#%@}? Seems rather obvious to me. {!#%@} is a slur against women.....in the USA. Seems Australia has a more "toned down" relationship with the word according to a riff Jim Jeffries did last night.

Words. Hmmmmm…….why do I type out {!#%@} and Wordpress doesn't censor me but I would not type the "N" word? Could give lots of reasons but all the issues are pretty much the same? Nice experiment: type of the "N" word and see what Wordpress/This forum does with it? The difference might be the degree and rational of the oppression? I don't know, I'm just a dick.

Oh...…...ha, ha...……….Wordpress does get updated and sensitized. Amusing. Now: the N word: xxxxxx.

Well, that is instructive of ………….."something?" The N word is allowed but the C word is not. What a Racist forum this is.??????

What do you mean? All words are allowed, as far as I can see.

{!#%@}. Nigger. Fatso. Trump. {!#%@}. Word association game.

Yup! All of 'em are there!

The only one I can't see is the word that I have banned, which I can't remember. The forum replaces it with the word "banana", so I never actually see the banned word.

The C**t word is banned. So is S**t and F**k. But the N word is not and of all the words, Shirley the N word is the worst?

A real scholar would...………………..oh, ok...…….lets go find Carlins list:

The words are: {!#%@}, piss, {!#%@}, {!#%@}, {!#%@}, {!#%@}, and tits. aka: s, p, f, cs, mf, and tits. And I agree tits shouldn't even be on the list, and probably is not banned. The Submit Button will reveal all.

Oh, do you mean the board censors?

Yeah. I believe the default position is "off" for those, isn't it? If so, then you didn't have to turn those on. And if not, you can turn them off.

...oh, and the only word I have on my censored list is "trajectory". I always see "banana" instead.
