This has turned into an all out blitz and it seems so very orchestrated. It has all the viscousness of chicago politics. I can’t help but wonder how much Mooch and Valerie Jarrett have to do with this

How many black or those of color does Paula or has she employed over the years?

Amazing how idiots in CONGRE$$ can say stupid things everyday and no one peeps in the least in the media.

Is anybody going to stand up for Paula Dean? Is anyone going to finally stand up and speak against the politically correct witch hunts? Lefties are neo-puritans. This is getting more and more chilling by the day.

It is. And it’s probably only the beginning, only the FIRST of who they will destroy if their hideous communist agenda isn’t followed to the letter.

This is not the America we once knew. It’s officially gone.

“OK. There is something WAY more going on here than a 60-something year old woman saying the n-word decades ago.”

You took the words right out of my mouth. I, too, think this is way overboard. Someone has it in for this woman & big time. Something happened & she is being made an example of. I just wish she’d let us all in on it.

The libs have been after her for a decade....They despise her largely because she represents everything they hate about the south. In short they believe that burning the south and killing most of the men was not enough punishment for what they believe was a war that was all about slavery and that the south somehow invented it.

I say this as a transplanted Yankee and a creepy cracker to boot....

There is something strangely odd about people that would march out in the freezing cold with candles lit begging for mercy for a prisoner on death row about to be put to death for some heinous crime . . . because now he is sorry for it . . .

and those that would destroy a woman and her whole family off of a racial slur uttered years ago . . . ???

Who was it that recently said, about one of Hillary’s crimes while in office “that was ancient history!”

There simply ain’t no forgiveness for anyone that crosses this monster . . .

And even stranger when one considers that this is one of their own . . . an nobama supporter! voted for him twice!

I’m afraid that her real crime was in being born white . . .

Her books are selling briskly on Amazon. Ergo, get a new publisher and a new, more favorable contract.

Buh bye, Ballantine.

Hmmm. I appreciate your creepy Yankee cracker perspective but I thought Paula Deen was a giant, Obama-worshipping lib. If that’s true, then why would the lobs be after her?

There’s more to this than meets the eye. At any rate, this isn’t the country I knew five years ago. America is dead. Welcome to Amerika.

I hope another publisher picks it up and I hope this action by the publisher is enough of a breach of contract that Paula Deen can sue and recoup some of the loss.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the publisher claims that she violated some so-called “morality clause” in her contract. Only problem with that, though; is that they get to decide what is moral and what is not.

They want her brought down for exactly the reasons I stated...It does not matter if she's a democrat, she is not one of them...

On the same side of my argument you had a seasoned Senator from Virginia who was once a Grand Wizard of the KKK, but he renounced the South and his former life...

Paula Dean was proud of her heritage as most southerners are, and thus she did not deserve the pardon from the wizards of morality.......errrr.....Progressive Values...which they don't even believe in anyway and just use it to claim they are relevant.

Other than a lawsuit that I thought everyone knew about, regarding a former black employee who claimed she was racist, which resulted in someone making her deposition public that set off this entire episode, I know of no other reason why the left hates her guts....They hate her because what she is...plain and simple...and they see her demise as a prize.

I think Paula Deen should take a more aggressive position.
"This was a long frikken time ago. I grew up...whadda bout you offended black folks."

"Fuggedaboutit!"

I for one am getting sick and tired of crackas bowing down to those who hate us.

It is unbecoming, Paula...show a little backbone.

Where do the executives of Random House/Ballantine Books live? Paula Dean Fans should act like a bunch of liberals at Karl Rove’s house. Bang on the doors and windows. Scare the hell out of them and their families. If we don’t start acting as aggressively as they do, it will get worse for all of us.

It’s a sad state of affairs that the left has created such upheaval. Freedom of speech and association do not exist in reality as we might think it does.

Freedom of speech and association as well as goodness and decency must be defended from evil.

At the present time, evil is walking all over those who believe in goodness and decency because we haven't found our voice and started fighting back.

When we do start to fight back, humor and ridicule MUST be an important part of our arsenal.

Humor, as an ingredient, is how reality can be wielded in a manner immune to the smears and lies of our enemy.

The Left uses lies...we must use humor.

Liberals have been weaned on hatred and anger. It isn't a racial thing...it is a cultural thing.

There are many fine black conservatives, Jews and Christians.

It's not about the color of our skin...it is about choosing sides. The left has sided with Lucifer...and many of them even know it.

Very true... but it's NOT the business level that the Paula Deen business dynasty was operating on.

Look, Lady Gaga could make lot's more money selling direct to he fans... but there is ONE little catch. The establishment machine builds your image over time and you must quietly allow them to collect their "pound of flesh".

Without the "machine" your stuck at ground zero trying to launch yourself.

A TRUE exception to the rule, in music, was PRINCE. He was hyped big by the machine and became a name and a BIG seller. A few years back, on his own, he put out his latest album directly and later reported that he made more money on that ONE album than ALL of the albums he had collectively put out through the record label.

My point: The "establishment machine" feeds your hype because they are financially feeding off of it. Paula Deen has now been banished by this same establishment and she's now on the outside looking in. Like Prince she still has the notoriety but now must negotiate the system on her own.

The difference: Prince's popularity, according to the label, had faded over time. Paul Deen's popularity has been compromised over the silly a$$ "politically correct" idea that she used the "N" word many years ago. Strange world we live in these days.

The reason blacks use nigga all the time is to try to take the sting out of the word. Incidents like this just reload the sting and then some. The left has now fully recharged this word as a weapon that can wound. And they've disarmed blacks so that they need Democrat plantation lawyers to defend them, minus a cut.

Even though Paula Deen is an Obama supporter, even I don’t wish this upon her..shows how much power blacks have, you say the N word, and the media destroys you..

Agreed...that's why I don't care that she supported Obama. She's an American who's being viciously attacked for using her freedom of speech. We need to be consistent and stand by her. Otherwise, it could be you or me next. She's being made an example of. Blacks and the Left are saying, "See, Crackers? WE decide what you can and can't say. You'd better toe the line or you're next."
