New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney, a Democrat, apologized Monday for using the N word in a recent interview while recounting a phone call she had received.

"I apologize for having repeated a word I find disgusting," Maloney said in a statement. "It's no excuse but I was so caught up in relaying the story exactly as it was told to me that, in doing so, I repeated a word that should never be repeated."

"I apologize for having repeated a word I find disgusting," Maloney

If she found it so disgusting she would've tripped up over its use and it wouldn't have so naturally rolled off her tongue.

I love it when political correctness bites the politically correct police right on the ass.

No need to apologize, Congresswoman Maloney. After all, you're a Democrat.

which means that your free lifetime pass cannot be revoked ...

Hmmm. I am Cajun class - but was told early in life by my Catholic parents that if the N-word ever emerged from my lips, there would be permanent damage. It has not, nor will it ever.

Now, looking at our upper class (or is that upper *ss) east coast libs, it’s a horse of a different color, not?

Not to defend a democrat, but she was quoting someone else.

Not sure how that is a problem.

Its funny that there is no coverage of this. If a republican had said it, there would be outrage and protests. Al and Jesse would be marching.

lets see,

There is the N,F,B,and others. so what is the first thing that comes to mind when someone uses a sentence with “x word” in it?

Right,the word itself - so whats the difference?

It just goes to prove how DEMONCRATS are racists.

Do as I say, not as I do (say).

It was a freudian slip.

Maloney is a Numbskull...there, I used an “N” word to describe her.

I use the word when appropriate and will not apologize to anyone.

Whenever you are on the same side of an argument with Al Sharpton, it’s time to re-evaluate.

Had this been a Republican the Dems would have both claws out demanding her resignation.

They should do the same for one of their own.

“New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney, a Democrat, apologized Monday for using the N word...”

.
The black RATs probably know but don’t mind that she uses the N-word repeatedly in private conversation. It’s when she does it publicly that they get annoyed and expect an apology from her.

If it had been a Republican who had uttered the word, only his/her subsequent resignation would have been acceptable.

Precisely. Even when retelling a story - anyone who REALLY finds that word repugnant would NEVER have used it. They would have said “n word” or “a word I won’t repeat beginning with “n.”

Heck, I have trouble saying the second half of Governor Ah-nold’s name out loud because it sounds like...well, you know.

By the way - how much MSM air time did Boxer’s condescending treatment of Mr. Alford get? I’m thinking NONE.

Geez , it’s just a word.

This word has become a monster , Its just a word. I know plenty that are worse. Careers lost over it.

It’s BS. Blacks use it all the time, but its the end of the world if used by a white.

Is anyone else getting sick of people who take offense at tle least slight.?

The Democrats have always ruined GOP careers with that and other words so turnabout is fair play.

She shouldn’t have apologized. She was recounting a conversation she had over the phone, she didn’t call someone a n*&%*r directly. Of course the PC and thought police in the Democrat Party made her apologize, they have no respect for free speech.

She should resign just like they would demand a Republican resign, even for just recounting a story that contained that word.

I disagree, I am glad the Republicans aren’t jumping on this as far as I know. No need to compete with Democrats as the Speech Police.

I agree with you,It’s just a word.Not even a vulgar word, just a slang pronunciation. How about M`*****r F****r, That is how most sentences start and end in “ebonics” isn’t it?

Maloney said. “I don’t know-I don’t know if that’s true or not. I just called. I’m just throwing that out.”

Intentional.

It has in every ebonics class I ever took and I took a few.

You have to be careful ,for when you have heard it enough before you know it, it begins to become part of the vocabulary when speaking to certain people.

I don't understand why calling it the "N word" is acceptable but saying the actual word is unforgivable

after all the "N word" means....um....the N word.
