Lyin’ Ass Bitch

That’s the title of a song played by a late night talk show band as Michelle Bachmann was introduced and walked on stage. The band leader is black.

When asked whether she was offended, Ms. Bachmann, replied “Nah. I mean, what do you expect from a dumb-ass nigger?”

OK, she didn’t say that, but imagine she had. 75% of you who read this will be offended that I even hypothesize about such an occurrence and virtually all of you are angry that my fingers actually typed that word instead of something like “N-word” or “n*****.”

Why?

Why is it ok to hate, lie about, demean and mock some people while others (most Democrats, all black men except Herman Cain and Clarence Thomas) live under under a protective shield of ‘thou shalt not even appear to be insensitive to my frail feelings.”  A conservative is forced daily to address unfounded, ad hominem accusations of racism, a lack of sympathy for the poor, an over-zealous support for the cruel free market, constant shilling for rich CEOs and Wall Street fat-cats, and so forth. The accusers are praised as keen thinkers or great journalists who know how to get to the heart of a topic. Yet when a conservative makes a cogent argument and concludes that, say, Barack Obama’s health care plan will not result in ‘free’ health care, he’s becomes knuckle-dragging lunatic who just can’t stand the ‘otherness’ of people who don’t fit in.

Think of it this way. Besides Michelle Bachmann, Rush Limbaugh and [Donald Sterling], who else is on the list of “People it’s OK to Hate.” I won’t hate or wish ill fortune on any of them, but I want to know which hatreds I’m supposed to excuse when I see it from other people.

So, please let me know. Who do YOU think it is OK to hate?

  1. America’s philosophy was always, and still remains: If you can get away with it, go for it.

  2. Racist and sexist remarks are types of “hate speech” and should be avoided. I can’t tolerate Bachmann, her politics, or her personal views, but as a woman, I’m offended at the sexism involved , not necessarily the political dig (if that’s what it was).

    • So it’s ok to hate a person for her way of thinking but not her sex? OK, at least we know who you hate – anyone who disagrees with you. Check. Thanks for your input.
