Those that meet the administration behind closed doors in off the record meetings, have decided that Paul Deen represents the single greatest threat to civil liberties we face a s nation,

Far behind the IRS or even the NSA abuses.

Obama used the homo-slur “teabaggers” as did Anderson Pooper and neither is out of work or made to apologize. Imagine that.

Just goes to show which companies have leftie leanings
IMO. I really don’t get the whole controversy. If all the things I have ever said in my lifetime were judged I would be
in jail or worse.
Ever since 2009 and O things have really gotten out of control.

If someone asks if you used the N word in the past, just say NO.

Listen the "N" word is so bad that anybody that has ever used it will be shot in a firing squad.
Except black folks They can use it anytime they so desire, and scream bloody murder if a white person especially a southern person uses it.
Welcome to America TODAY. Double standard America.
Don't call me a cracker. . . . Or a Honkie.
But if you do I don't care. It is only a WORD. STICKS AND STONES WILL BREAK MY BONES, BUT WORDS. . . . . .

Not to mention that Paula Deen’s comments from 30-odd years ago (that’s a long time) are getting more coverage than the deaths of four Americans last year in Benghazi.

The media and Liberals (sorry to be redundant) are convinced that so-called white racism represents the single greatest threat to civil liberties we face as a nation. That's why the media is so lopsided in how they report race stories. They don't want to make whites aware of the extent of black crime and racism, and they want to forever stoke white guilt. In the case of Paula Deen, the media want to make an example out of her to scare any whites away from ever thinking or sharing racist thoughts. Meanwhile, the Liberal media gives Al Sharpton his own show after he's made a career out of making remarks comparable to Deen's.

The mistake she made was APOLOGIZING!

She is a democrat and Obama supporter- that would have gotten her a pass.

If she just announced “I am not going to apologize for things done and said in a different era- I am a democrat and supported Obama so if you want to claim I am a racist then go to heck”

Wow. So when you're lying in the road and someone approaches you to help you but first asks who you voted for then calls you a twit and decides not to help you based on your answer, I'm sure you'll be ok with that right? And I'm sure if this was your mother and some lib posted that your mother is a stupid twit because she voted for a republican, you'd be ok with that too right? And you'd be ok with them putting your mom out of business for something she said 30 years go, yeah, I'm sure you'd be quite ok with that.

I felt sorry for her until I heard how she voted.

What goes around comes around. She voted for the speech police and the hate whitey group and it came back to her in spades (excuse my pun).

“Barack...he’s talking down to black people...telling niggers how to behave”.-Jessie Jackson.

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/item_2IKMVtS3vzxRvoAAxZ0ZGL

WASHINGTON - In a vulgar tirade caught on tape by Fox News, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said he wanted to “cut his [Barack Obama’s] nuts out” and he accused the fellow Chicagoan of “talking down to black folks” by giving moral lectures to African-Americans, source said Jackson’s shocking quotes were picked up by a hot mic before an interview on health care in Fox’s Chicago studio last Sunday.

Now if she would send all them fn free food, all might be forgiven....if she will serve it to them on a golden platter.

Shame on any organization for firing someone over the use of any word.

I didn't say it. But I do now. They broke into my parents garage, house and car. One grabbed my mom's purse (age 85 at the time) as she walked home from a friend's house.

And then there's the good ones. They're absolutely wonderful. Wouldn't even think of calling them "n".

Afraid not. She's Southern, speaks with a pronounced drawl, is overweight, dowdy, and has been targeted by the bluenosed Northern liberal elites for some time now because she's a stereotype they despise. They were just waiting for an opening like this to destroy her.

And the left continues to dance and shoot and laugh with joy...Even though Deen was an O supporter she still represented ‘those stupid southern white trash types’ in the eye of the MSM. They want to put out a tar baby and hope that people get stuck to it (ooops I guess that reference makes me a racist too).

When will the congress grow some balls and get a spine and impeach the fool in the WH?

The only reason people on this site want to see her punished is because she voted for HUSSEIN. May God forgive all of you. If she voted for a republican all of you would be rallying around her.

There must be more to this story. Wasn't Dean in the middle of a lawsuit?

Maybe that was the primary reason and the racial slur that she said 30 years ago was just an excuse.

Good grief.

Paul Dean says something considered a "racial slur" and the libs are up in arms.

But ZerO's administration using the force of government to punish his political enemies and sitting back while 4 Americans are killed - no big deal.

I agree with you. Some of the people on this site have been remarkably cruel and judgmental. And it is because she voted for Obama.
The woman is being blackmailed by a former employee. If anyone should be losing her livelihood it’s Lisa Jackson.
Injustice is injustice regardless of who you voted for.

Yes. There is a harassment lawsuit brought by an ex-employee. She was giving her deposition in advance of trial. They were looking for any dirt to smear her and her company.

Paula Deen is held accountable for something she did thirty years ago and Obama, who slept through the murder of four Americans at Benghazi, gets no consequence.

Well said. As a Southerner by choice, I tend to give the benefit of a doubt to those from our mostly Conservative, Christian, pro-gun, pro-life and anti-union region of the country. But a Southern accent and a smile is no guarantee of Christian values. Paul Deen is the latest example. It was likewise with the vile Andy Griffith who posed himself as a good guy but the evil dwelling within that Obama supporter became readily apparent. I had some of his gospel albums but destroyed them when I realized what a truly reprehensible commie he actually was.

They will rejoice in seeing the justice of God glorified in the sufferings of the damned: The misery of the damned, dreadful as it is, is but what justice requires. They in heaven will see and know it much more clearly, than any of us do here. They will see how perfectly just and righteous their punishment is, and therefore how properly inflicted by the supreme Governor of the world. They will greatly rejoice to see justice take place, to see that all the sin and wickedness that have been committed in the world, is remembered of God, and has its due punishment. The sight of this strict and immutable justice of God will render him amiable and adorable in their eyes. They will rejoice when they see him who is their Father and eternal portion so glorious in his justice.

Food Network is run by NYC liberals. Not at all surprised they cut Paula loose.

I read some of the deposition. She was not well prepared although you can't tell if that is her fault or her lawyers. The way she rambles on the air, it may not be possible to prepare her. Bottom line is she talked too much and was not careful about how she responded to questions.
