  •  Their apologies.. (2+ / 0-)

    ..are nothing but dog whistles to their followers, dog whistles that convey all is well, don't worry.

    The right wing apology is an empty formality meant to appease an anti-conservative liberal media.  Since they are all so immersed in victimhood, they get it.

    In other words, their apologies are a way to speak re-enforcement code to their loyal adherents.

    That's why their apologies are never real apologies; they are thinly-veiled messages to their fellow cult members that everything is okay, & nobody is really abandoning their core beliefs.

    In other words, this asshole meant every word of what he said.  And his people understand the apology was just part of the game.
