I suggest, out of fairness, that the Food network question all employees if they have ever used the N word; make them take a polygraph, and fire anyone who has used the N word. Their payroll would drop by 90%
As they should. How many of us can look in the mirror and say that we NEVER did anything in the past that the PC police wouldn't convict us for today??
The Food Network is, evidently, run by PC idiots!
No pity for Libs or people who support them. She helped ‘feed’ the monster that ate her. Good riddance.
Sorry, but I just have to say this......
Big deal, she just called a spade a spade........
She used the term 40 - 50 years ago about a black thug that held a gun to her head .... duh, I sure as hell would have called him that and more.
an environment rife with innuendo and racial slurs.
Uh, that would be any place with a large number
of minority employees.
The things I’ve heard.....
I’ve never called anyone the n word but when I was growing up in Chicago of all places, (I am 60) a very commmon phrase when you had a hards day’s work was “I worked like a n****r”. This was in an all white neighborhood. Think about it. That was a long time ago. Does that phrase fit today? I say no which is why I have not used it since my 30’s. Anoyther term my late dad used a lot when he saw someone get a bunch of money and spend it all stupidly was “They were n****r rich”. Hmmm. He was a sort of prophet.
Then franken kerry should go for his 711 comments, bubba should should have gone for his comments about zero only a few years ago would be serving us coffee. pick and choose liberal progressives and thier black racist cohorts.
I had the Food Network on this morning, getting ready for church. The Pioneer Woman was on and then Paula Deen’s Best Dishes was supposed to follow. I kept it on to see if there was any kind of disclaimer at the beginning of her show but they put another episode of The Pioneer Woman on instead.
Pretty brutal. Just trying to erase her like she never existed and made them into a household name. This from the network who didn’t have one single african American chef show several years ago.
Now, I wonder if giving blow jobs outside of marriage is as offensive.
Cooking channels are like street hustlers.. always trying to lure ya in.. scruple them.
I needed to learn more about her before I came to a supportable opinion and at first blush find that she appears to be your standard liberal, obama supporting demonrat.
Three up and three down, end of the inning, but I'll just call it strike one.
However, it appears she has been skewered on on the PC swizzle stick for the n-word, which automatically takes that first strike away, since I don't believe in PC or words that only certain people can say.
Not quite medal material, but worthy of an honorable mention.
Butt, then I find out she is likely on the receiving end of some obamawrath for comments made about Michelle's feeding trough style when big mamaobama came 'round for some food and face time on her tv show.
So, now I quit trying to score this game and am just going to enjoy the show.
Paula Deen is a typical liberal. She campaigned for Obama in 2008, had the Mooch on her show several times and is now getting a taste of the liberal version of “free speech”.
She supports an administration that looks for victims and scapegoats. She’s the scapegoat. The media will hide her voting habits, label her as a “southern racist Republican hick” and get one step closer to making it impossible for any of us to utter a word without being called a racist. Unless of course it’s “honkey”, “cracker’ or “whitey’.
If 25% of what is in the lawsuit is true Paula Deen and her family are disgusting people and I hope they lose everything.
I don’t believe in special privileges for protected classes of people. If black rappers aren’t penalized for using the word, then no one should be.
Accusations of offending the Chosen Miniority trumps justice, fairness, informed judgement, logic, common sense.
Liberals preach forgiveness for terrorists, murderers, rapists, and performers of illegal abortions.
But they demand serious blood the instant anyone is accused of offending a black.
Paula already has her millions.
She should laugh at her critics, point out what hypocrits they are and tell them to take a flying leap.
Maybe this experience will cause her to rethink her foolish support of liberal politicians.
The funniest thing about this story was the accompanying photo of her supporters outside of her Georgia restaurant. Looked like the set of The Biggest Loser.
Someone had to say it.
I laughed at a racist joke my Uncle told me once.
Am cutting wrists now.
