Please Stop Apologizing
The New York Times ^ | Mar 21, 2012 | Bill Mahr

Posted on 03/22/2012 1:21:47 PM PDT by eak3

When did we get it in our heads that we have the right to never hear anything we don’t like? In the last year, we’ve been shocked and appalled by the unbelievable insensitivity of Nike shoes, the Fighting Sioux, Hank Williams Jr., Cee Lo Green, Ashton Kutcher, Tracy Morgan, Don Imus, Kirk Cameron, Gilbert Gottfried, the Super Bowl halftime show and the ESPN guys who used the wrong cliché for Jeremy Lin after everyone else used all the others.

Is there a point to your post? Who cares what this foul mouth punk has to say? I am continually amazed that someone has not kicked his a$$ around the block and back.

You obviously know a lot more about the show than I do. I have never watched a single episode. The point of this article is show another perspective on how out of control PC is. So no need to shoot the messenger.

I disagree. There are very few people that are scummier, nastier, and more two face than Bill Mahron.

The ONLY reason this POS wrote this editorial is that light is recently being shed over his endless parade of disgusting comments.

Ordinarily, he sits by with amused complacency when conservatives are pilloried by “outraged” liberals demanding apologies for violating some PC speech code or other.

I’m sure most of us have read the so-called comparison of Lincoln and Kennedy, but did you ever consider the relationship between Hussein Obama and Lincoln?

You might be surprised...

same Bible.

2. Lincoln came from Illinois. Obama comes from Illinois.

3. Lincoln served in the Illinois Legislature. Obama served in the Illinois Legislature.

4. Lincoln had very little experience before becoming President. Obama had
very little experience before becoming President.

5. Lincoln rode the train from Philadelphia to Washington for his
inauguration. Obama rode the train from Philadelphia to Washington for his
inauguration.

6. Lincoln was a skinny lawyer. Obama is a skinny lawyer.

7. Lincoln was a Republican. Obama is a skinny lawyer.

8. Lincoln was in the United States military. Obama is a skinny lawyer.

9. Lincoln believed in everyone carrying their own weight. Obama is a skinny
lawyer.

10. Lincoln did not waste taxpayers’ money on personal enjoyments. Obama is
a skinny lawyer.

11. Lincoln was highly respected. Obama is a skinny lawyer.

12. Lincoln was born in the United States. Obama is a skinny lawyer.

13. Lincoln was honest, so honest he was called Honest Abe. Obama is a
skinny lawyer.

Amazing, isn’t it?

It is a wise political tatic to hang the Democrats with the awful things said by their most famous supporters. They play the race and sex cards on their political enemies all the time.

We need to do it back at ‘em. We lose making it a one way street. Leftists have nothing to say if they are afraid to smash mouth their way into power. Their ideas stink.

I am offended by so many who are so readily offended. Maybe I need to review the Bill of Rights...isn’t there a right to not be offended in there somewhere????

Especially if they weren’t even mind raped, “Star Trek” style.
