Paula Deen Compares Herself to Michael Sam; World Reacts Accordingly
New York Magazine ^

Posted on 02/27/2014 12:48:53 PM PST by nickcarraway

The Paula Deen Comeback Spectacle continues: The latest development, a People cover story in which the celeb chef compares herself to Michael Sam, the former University of Missouri football player who famously came out as gay in advance of the NFL Draft.

Here's how the Wrap quotes her from the story:

I feel like ‘embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out… He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying.

It seems that the embattled, disgraced Deen does not in fact know exactly what Sam is saying. Or does she? Can anyone really be this obtuse? Even for Deen, it's a stretch.

As anyone would expect, people have jumped all over this story. Here's Grub Street's theory: Deen's just Donald Trump-ing everyone now, dropping nonsense like this because she knows it'll get a rise out of people. Like Trump, Paula Deen the caricature has fully overtaken Paula Deen the person. When she starts calling her new $20 million restaurant "classy," we'll know this is the case.

Okay Paula.

You obviously are just full of yourself.

I don’t see what you did deserved a punishment by way of destruction of your life, business, empire and happiness but, You are no longer pretending to be stoopit.

You need to heed the advice of your business associates and shut up about this.

Put it behind you and move on.

You are making yourself a target and fodder for your enemies and losing drip on those who at least had sympathy for you.

Let’s hear about your next great idea. Or are you really done?

Michael Sam has not been victimized by the left and lost millions of dollars simply for expressing his views.

Paula Deen has been a victim of the left and has lost millions of dollars simply for expressing her view.

She was not victimized by the left. She IS the left. Jesse Jackson and Obama are her biggest defenders. She is Michelle’s good buddy.

To hell with all of them.

She cooks good.
She has good recipes.
I will continue to copy her good recipes if she is white, black, green, queer, transtesticle, whatever.

The only ones screaming RACE are the same oneS that always interject race into every single little thing.

And I don’t waste one nannosecond of my time giving a damn what they think, what they say, what they call me, or what they think I called them.

Its the only card they have and they can run it into the ground for all I care.

I
DONT
CARE

My advise to her...

Cook.
That is all.

Let them scream.
Ignore them.

I saw something about her appearing at a SOBE food thing. It must have gone to her head that she's "back in the game".

She suffered that penalty for expressing her views? I thought she suffered that penalty because leftists imputed her views.

I heard on the radio today that after the workout Michael Sam did at the combine, that he is undraftable.

If you are a 6th or 7th round choice, the best the team can hope for is a practice squad guy. But who would draft a practice squad guy for the media circus that would come with him?

I bet he gets drafted by the Steelers. Steelers owners think they are nessiah-like heros, who are better than anyone else.

The only noise he made at the combine here in Indy was in the press room.

His on-field work was not good.
Too slow for linebacker, too small/weak for lineman.

Of course back when I was working in industry, there was always pressure to hire “diversity” candidates...

And we have not watched the Food Network or any of its affiliates since she was booted. My wife was a huge fan of the network and we watched it all of the time.

Me? I really didn’t care for the network. It made me hungry watching food for hours at a time. I usually gave in to temptation, too. And worst of all, I was sitting the couch.

michelle obama vs paula deen

About 301,000 results (0.41 seconds)

 

I think you know the backstory here. Paula pissed off MObama. Wookie unleashed 20 year dirt about the N-word. Flying monkeys in the press ran with it. Paula's empire colllapsed costing her millions.

My theory all along has been that Sams knows he's a long shot for the NFL and he did the gay thing hoping some team would pick him up for good media attention.

I think it will backfire because if someone drafts him and later cuts him at the end of the preseason the media and gay lobby will be all over them. Pass on this circus.

Deen wasn’t a victim of anybody. She’s a celebrity chef who constantly was showing unhealthy recipes and wound up with type 2 diabetes form eating the food she showed everybody how to cook. Food Network was looking for a reason to throw her out the door, then she mishandled what should have minor issue and they got their excuse.

That is just media drivel. Jesse Jackson and the Obamas tried to protect her. Why don't you ask Mrs. Deen, I bet she admits she is 100% for Obama.

She lost money because she was exposed for the nasty person she is. The woman she was abusing was white, not black. She treated the people who worked for her like filth. I don't know about you, but I don't like people like that who treat people bad, whether they are black or white. And she treated both badly.

Freepers are always saying that all racists are Democrats, But when a Democrat exposes her as a racist, they want to make he a patron saint. And I do believe that she is a racist too. Making black employees use a different bathroom, and her weird racist wedding fantasy. BTW, it was the Obama who spread the myth she hadn't been racist for 35 years. That was not indicated at all in the transcripts.

Zactly

She’s always gonna have detractors.

Hell, I don’t like her food and her overly affectatious accent. Sure, it’s real but, making it drip?

and her food is trailer park, white trash.

Ain’t no secret why someone has diabetes who eats that stuff all the time.

Worse than French food. How many sticks of butter is it really gonna take to make a meal?

White bread is just sugar in a sandwich.

And sugar is best drunk from a bottle of liquor or wine.

Don’t hate her though and I’m sure is just one of the nicest people ever.

And I would eat her food once in a while or maybe every other year.

He appears to be too slow and too weak to be an NFL defensive end or outside linebacker. He might be able to overcome those shortcomings if he has great football sense. Some players just have a feel for the game that puts them in the right position to make plays. I don't know if he has that ability but I think he'll need it to play in the NFL.

My wife's favorite. Restaurant: Impossible with that annoying Robert Irvine who lied on his resume. Is he really from the States?

Diners is another one of her favs and then some show with “cut” its the name where three snobby judges judge the cooking skills of wannabe chefs. Good eats was one of my favorites.

And Iron Chef where they slice and dice some animal or fish while it is still alive. My wife didn't like the show after that. Lol.

We were regulars. But not anymore.

Considering the way this woman groveled at the feet of the left (her own people) and begged to be forgiven, I have absolutely zero sympathy. She made a spectacle of herself.

“I is what I is”......maybe she talks like that, but I don’t know any other white Southerner who does.

If I were Paula there wouldn’t be a black working within any of my stores....just to be safe.

Might hurt someone’s feelings she asked someone to fry up some chicken.

She wouldn’t do that because she believes blacks were born to serve whites.

Sure I would.

If I were visiting, I’d probably think it was awesome.

I just can’t eat that all the time.

Besides, I don’t think think you would attenuate your accent for effect.

What are you cooking Sunday?
