“Kinda like a pick and choose conservative cause that will benefit me and screw the rest of them...........”
My honest feelings are more along the lines of schaudenfreud.
The Paula Deen thing for me was like this girl I knew in school who hung with the people who made my life hell and then one day they made HER life hell. True, she hadn’t done anything to me personally but at the same time I didn’t care that they turned on her.
This year I saw a movie on TV where a human had betrayed humanity to some alien. The alien says to the human, “Did you think that by helping us we’d hate you any less?”
And then the alien killed the human.
That’s what’s on my mind with Paula Deen.
And I’ve never thought ‘Screw her’ because she screwed herself by picking the wrong friends.
Picking the wrong friends and having Karma bite you in the butt is one thing...
Picking the wrong friends and them breaking the law to destroy is a whole other matter.
Last I checked libel and slander are illegal.
As conservatives I would think we tolerate stuff in support of the law. In this case I think it would be appropriate to hold the ‘discrimination’ crowds feet to the fire for reacting to false accusations before a verdict of any kind was rendered.
We are a nation of laws or we are not.
