Skip to comments.‘N-word’ user Paula Deen is an Obama supporter
Posted on 06/22/2013 3:27:07 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Television chef Paula Deen, who lost her gig Friday with the Food Network after admitting and apologizing for having used racial epithets, including the N-word, is a supporter of President Barack Obama, campaigning on his behalf in 2008 and cultivating a friendship with first lady Michelle Obama.
Though Deen allegedly called Obama the N-word in front of her employees, according to a lawsuit, the Southern-bred television personality actually campaigned with Obama in 2008, invited Michelle Obama onto one of her television programs, and praised the first ladys healthy eating agenda.

I quit watching her show years ago. In fact, the Food Network is overrated in my opinion. It’s become more entertainment rather than actual cooking.
Most of te true racists I’ve met are liberals.
Many of the liberals I know are racists or bigots.
I would agree...maybe in the original theme as they started out, it was pure cooking, but it’s mostly entertainment now. Here’s the thing....by Xmas, Paula will have finished a book entitled “How I recovered from the N-word episode”. The Today Show will interview her, and the food network will let her back in by spring of 2014.
$1.2 million? What a shakedown over nothing.
How long will it be before the Negroes and Hispanics
outnumber the Caucasians in America?
What will Negroes be called? I always thought “African-American” was so convoluted and stupid.
Well. If true, it changes my perspective a bit.
Welcome, Paula, to the “thrown under the bus” crowd of Obama lovers.
I wonder why it was acceptable for the authors of the articles about James Gandolfini's death to include the ethnic slur, "...he has been known to blow lines and drink like an Irish sailor on weekend leave...?"
Guy Fieri is a flaming douche, but “Diners, Drive ins and Dives” is pretty entertaining. That’s about all I can stand of the Food Network any more. That and when they occasionally rerun Good Eats.
I went to her restaurant in Savannah and thought the Golden Corral was better
OR she will sue them for reverse discrimination. I’d like to see that.
“Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”
Really, who hasn’t used the “N” word at some time in their 60+ long life??
I don’t understand. I’ve called Baracka Claus a NITWIT many times!!!
Can stomach her for about two minutes, until she says “Ya put two table spoons of oy all in the skillet.” How do you get two syllables out of the word oil?
Or one day she asks her son if he wanted smo. Smo? I’m thinking...What the h*ll is smo?

Pretty common I think... It is like when MTV first came out when I was in High school. Nothing but videos and I used to stay up and watch Headbanger’s Ball. That being said, I haven’t had MTV on in 20 years, because now it is stupid.
That’s exactly what we were talking about last night. 40-50 years ago, EVERYONE used that word. EVERYONE. And anyone who says otherwise is a LIAR.
I’m 63 and it was never used in my house growing up. I never heard either of my parents use it. Other than quoting Mark Twain I’ve never used it. It’s unnecessary and hurtful. It’s a mark of the uneducated as well, IMHO.
Call me sanctimonious if you like but it’s pretty clear that the word needn’t be used. I see no benefit in its use.
I have known some very old school democrats, in this case from the South, who voted for every democrat no matter what. And that would include Obama.
At the same time, these same individuals used every negative racial stereotype in the book, the “N” word and everything else. EXTREMELY prejudiced.
They were screaming liberals on all economic and social issues but at the same time as resentfully racist as you can get.
There aren’t many of these, as most have died off. But I have known some. Oh yes I have.
You are sanctimonious, it is just a word and the brothas and sistas call each other nigga all the time.
Axe them why they use the word all the time.
Agreed. She may be off-color, like miss piggy Betty White, but to destroy a person’s livelyhood over the use of a word, is not right. People hurt, jobs lost, just not fair.
I have always liked that lady. She reflects everything that was good about the south and our values over generations; God, family, church,respect for all men,just a great way of life you would only find in the South. Many children were reared with these exact values for many years and some even helped shape the country in a kinder gentler time.
She also seemed to reflect everything the regime would like to destroy. All those historical values we will never give up here in the Deep South, God, family and Apple pie. Paul Deen "seemed" to reflect all those values. "Seems" I was wrong all along.
She is a communist and a stain on America.
The word aptly describes the current administration, but of course we should not mention that.
Although many refuse to use the word the thought is in the mind.
Of course it is a mortal sin to discuss that. Eric Holder was right we are all we are afraid to openly discuss the racial problems with this president, and his picks for top offices.
Good bye, Paula.
Take those big choppers with you...
He has his moments but all too often he comes off as waay toooo contrived. Also its always about him and his analysis of the food seems like the same ol' shtick every time. All in all though I do watch a lot of those shows.
It's OK to use if you are black but if you are not or not a far left weirdo its not all right.
Reason #345,231 why being a White Guilt Liberal is stupid
She is to be an example. I am old enough to remember Joe McCarthy (barely)...this is no different. Back then even Stevenson liberals were suspect of being “fellow travelers”. Today, conservatives are being tarred by this administration and their media supporters...as “racists”.
Deen is being made a practical example of how your life can be ruined...she is white, older, and southern. And at least once said a “bad” word. Therefore she must be put outside of normal society.
The communists in Russia used this very, same technique. Expect more of it.
See...what the IRS did in targeting conservatives...was, in itself right...because conservatives are beyond the socially acceptable pale.
We only watch chopped these days. I like Ina even though she is a big lib she is a good cook and a real lady unlike the pig from the South Miss Lick Lick my fingers and say YAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL HOW YALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL DOINNNN.
The pc warriors have evolved in a similar manner that the race warriors have.Now they are in control.Now it's a law suit offense and the far left's demands for control over every facet of our life are just beginning.
It's pretty obvious to me that Paula Deen probably doesn't have a mean bone in her body. Most everything she says could easily be morphed into Christian or Conservative values yet she thinks she has to reach out to the obambas who will use the hell out of her in a chicago thugbeat.
No criminal organization has ever used the race card as effectively as the chicago thugocracy.They are masters at it.
“Its become more entertainment rather than actual cooking.”
Agreed. It use to be on in my home for the better part of the day. Now almost never. It has become nothing more than another reality TV network. All cooking contests all the time. Do like Triple D though.
You have a good point. Notice how her grown children still say “yes ma’am and no ma’am.”
I heard it. I used it. But a long time ago. Now when I hear it in conversation, it hurts my ears. It is in that mental lockbox with a couple of other words.
They are the “nuclear” option words. You can use them, I guess, but the conversation is over—and you lost.
I did not say it should be used. I said it was often used years ago without risk of job loss, hurtful as it may have been. I’ll never understand how blacks use it freely today.
She was a Jimmy Carter worshiper also.
I went to her restaurant in Savannah and thought the Golden Corral was better.
You too? It sure was not what we expected. Very little to choose from at the buffet and not too tasty, other than the hoe cakes.
I could not watch her show because her voice is so irritating and she seems so phony.
Sadly, Very Vera in Augusta, GA, trying to be another Paula, attempts to do a local cooking show that is so bad it is funny without meaning to be. She even gives instructions on how to properly use eating utensils!
I don’t use the word, ever. I was a child when I remember the word used freely. Not freely by my parents, but it would be a lie to say never.
Whoa!! Now that's an insult.
I agree with you.
Brilliant analysis and right on track.
In her case its not her politics, which are probably nonexistent, but her "values"! The hard left can't stand values that we have held close,near and dear here in the Deep South for eons.It's not compatible with communism.
The sad thing about Deen is the same truth about many black families raised in her generation. They all espouse conservative values but may vote dem. They are just not politically astute and our party leaders do a miserable job of showing them the light. Much less inviting them into a party that is much more in line with their values than all the goofballs,and wack jobs they are in mesh with now. If many of the soft dem voters spent a couple of weeks on our threads they would turn pubbie in a heartbeat they are simply never exposed to our side of the political debate/equation.Brainwashing is a terrible thing.
My grandmother, born in the late 1870s, used the word “darkies” instead.
My ex-wife had a family photo of a family member in the foreground. After her mother died, we found the original of that photo, and what was really in the background were some slaves that the family had. Someone had manually edited that photo because it was the only photo of that particular family member and they didn’t want to show the family’s real background. Wow!
Oh, you are so right. I watched Deen once on a news show, and I had to change the channel because she was cooking and licking her fingers. I am glad I was never in a situation to eat her cooking.
If we have chefs following her lead, I suppose we can look for a return of cholera and all sorts of diseases that were avoided through the proper hygiene techniques taught at the beginning of the last century.
The “n word” is a trap. Only Whites can fall into the trap. America’s first minority can use the “n word” all it wants, and can say “cracker” and “whitebread” too.
Amazing how there is more outrage over a word than there is over actual CRIMES.
Exactly. These are not bad people probably not even political. Just politically ignorant. Now they will be political pawns.
