    While i understand the statements that we can't complain about inflammatory rhetoric in others and condone it on our side I'm sick and tired of apologizing to these a-holes.
    They never get outraged or call out their own when people showed up at 2008 Palin rallies with monkeys, or the anti-ACA rallies with pictures of Obama with a bone through his nose. Or all the other comments about "thugs", "welfare queens" and all the other dog whistles they use when speaking to the base.
    And of course the Sandra Fluke "slut" comments...they are free to say the most spiteful, twisted, hateful things and are never called to account. Because it's just free speech and this is America.
    But intimate in the slightest that they are racist or sexist then they howl and demand apologies.
    And the spineless Dems and others always oblige with an apology and sending some poor working person packing.
    Enough!
    The tweet was very tame as far as I'm concerned - and accurate as well!

    •  I'm done apologizing (5+ / 0-)

      only to get derision and scorn in return.  

      The political right is largely populated by a bunch of ignorant fucksticks, bullies, racists, liars, misogynists, bigots, corporate suckups, wealthy assholes and partisan hacks.  The ONLY way to deal with them is to push back.  They say racist stupid shit, CALL THEM ON IT.  They push us around, PUNCH THEM IN THE FUCKING NOSE.  They bring up irrelevant misogynist crap from 20 years ago, EXPOSE THEM FOR THE HYPOCRITICAL SHITSTAINS THEY ARE.  The whine about class warfare, SHOW THEM WHAT REAL CLASS WARFARE LOOKS LIKE.  

      Until they being to apologize for all the shit they say and do we should NOT apologize for anything.  Martin Bashir suggested someone shit down Sarah Palin's throat so she can get a feel for what slavery is really like?  Well tough shit motherfuckers, maybe your assholes shouldn't be suggesting all the horrible shit be done to Michele Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi or any other strong liberal woman.   Oh what someone called you racist pieces of shit 'racists' well maybe you shouldn't be calling every person of color on TV a fucking monkey, macaca or ape.  Someone tweeted something mean about you or called you a Rancid Penis Mr ReiNCe PRieBuS?  Well maybe you assholes shouldn't be calling Sandra Fluke a slut.  

      Enough is enough and Phil Griffin is a fucking disgrace.  He's kowtowed several times now to the GOP it's high time that ball of Jello grow a fucking backbone.  Stop going flaccid at the sight of Joe Scarborough and stand up to that weaselly little turd blossom.
