Well they didn't, for starters.

As for why some people lose their jobs for opening their mouths and others don't, guess it depends on the nature of the invisible hand. Kathy Griffin lost work because of her sh-tty attempt at comedy. Jemele Hill lost her job at ESPN for her calling trump a white supremacist.

How many times has Keith Olbermann been fired or forced out and rehired and fired again because of his mouth? That guy really has a hard time checking himself because wrecking himself.

Oh Oh, After deep searching the left found a Trump supporter that used the "C" word back in 1994. As a republican I call for his show to be cancelled along with Samantha Beez. This is called a bi-partisan, non-hypocritical reaction. Hopefully our left wing friends will take note.

Try speaking at a college or university?

You are right of course but it often takes a phalanx of uniformed police to safeguard the speaker. Who may get to speak a few words before the chanting starts.

So yeah. I guess the moral of the story is that a racist tweet is worse than a history of drugged rape...

Can you guys talk amongst yourselves and make up your damn minds?
Some conservatives are whining that the only reason Cosby got prosecuted is because he "stepped off the reservation".
But you still think we think he's a liberal?

Here's a thought...
Maybe the real world doesn't devolve into the mindless level of political partisan thinking that some people think it does.

Replaced with the Cosby show? really.
um, well... maybe .. like Wienstein and others... the ABC executives can understand using your power and drugs to bone hollywood starlets. But overt racism ?!? that's just wrong.

Trump shares blame in Samantha Bee callin' Ivanka a "feckless c*nt."

This according to Chuck Todd.

I sh*t you not.

NBC’s Chuck Todd blames President Trump for comedian Samantha Bee’s vile comment on first daughter

Quote:
“You can’t help and say it starts at the top. He regularly berates and mocks the looks of any of us,” Todd said.

I call any idiot a monkey. Are you trying to say a Negroid looks like a monkey, or what?


I say the latent racist always compares certain people to certain animals.

Same.

"Y'all look like a bunch of monkeys tryin' to fuq a football!"

Would that be a racist statement?

Bottom line is libs love to race-bait. They're not happy with unity and relentlessly try and divide us.
