Possible, and historically I have generally trusted in the rational calm of boardrooms, but no longer surrounding this issue, or any matter of identity politics. The liberals have whipped too many people into a hysteria where they presume their feelings or politics transcend reason and law. This defense is an appeal to authority, but the corporate atmosphere has squandered moral authority on this matter, and this has been projected through "activist" businessmen and individuals.
Conservatives may need to form a watchdog for this in the same tradition as the SPLC and ADL.
No, I will not lay this at the feet of Steve Bannon. He didn't do this. Bannon only gained notoriety because of #BLM and radicalization of the mainstream liberal party. They were the ones who presented people like Shaun King as moral authorities.
They were the ones who pivoted what should have been a platform about economics (because not only black people are poor), urban planning, and self-defense rights into one focused purely through the prism of race. Bannon was able to capitalize on the hysteria; a moment for which he had waited his entire life to arrive.
Fascism isn't a concept limited to the rule of law or government, and my fight is in defense of this man in this specific situation.
He said Cornel Sanders used to say the word, but he said the actual word.
It's kinda silly how nuts this is getting
Well to tell you honestly it depends on the person and or the people around you.
The lessons he learned, and subsequently used to great effect, were adopted by many, if not all, the most malevolent purveyors of social media platforms and content (thereby including Cambridge Anal, Breitbart, Facebook, Russian troll farms, and so on). They’ve had a gigantic impact on this whole situation. And that mtherfucker started it.
This isn’t a left thing. It’s a reaction to the insanity of the (alt) right thing.
I'm more offended by the shitty pizza he sells. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Cambridge Analytica existed wholly independent of Bannon. He simply used social media-- via groups like them-- more effectively for Trump's campaign than Shaun King and his minions did for Hillary's.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Thanks for that, liberals.
P.S. I'm taking for granted that you're aware the Democrats also sampled their wares.
I sorta agree, but I don't think this was one of those situations
Mick fighting fascism on the karate forum:
Lol @ your delusions of grandeur
Can't disagree with you on that part.
“Colonel Sanders called blacks n-----s,”
Blacks??? really you racist motherfucker!
That last line is really my point. They shopped the methods they learned from Bannon to anybody and everybody. The important distinction is the way the alt-right and any explicit or tacit supporters of Trump latched onto them and pushed him them as hard as possible, compared to the Democrats/left/whatever else we’re conflating today who only caught on to what it could really do after it was too late. In fairness, ditto the Intelligence Community.
And you glossed over the widespread distribution of these methods beyond CA. So, point is jerk off or something and try to breathe.
Put the horns away.
By this logic, if somebody is reading Tom and Huck, and they read "n**ger jim" put loud, they have used a racial slur.
He responded by downplaying the significance of his NFL statement. “Colonel Sanders called blacks n-----s,” Schnatter said, before complaining that Sanders never faced public backlash.
Hes saying he doesnt understand why hes getting in trouble for saying racial slurs and complaining because 'Colonel Sanders got away with it'.
Hes either completely out of touch or he thinks because of his position he should be able to get away with it.
Pretty easy to understand if youre objective.
Thats literally what he complained about. Read the article. He doesnt understand why hes getting backlash and Colonel Sanders didnt.
Like I said, hes probably just out of touch after living in his moated castle for so many years.
This all day long. For every conversation taking place in the world today, there's a fucking snowflake ready to be offended by its content.
The er of the word
Context and intent is specifically why Black people saying it to each other is not racist (obviously) , whereas non-Blacks saying it to Blacks motivated by anger is racist.
Amongst my friends we will call each other names that no one minds, but a stranger saying the same words would elicit an angry response.
I'm fucking livid.
Separate names with a comma.
