Paula Deen and the war on freedom of speech

Paula Deen is being absolutely ravaged by the Political Correctors of America because she admitted to using that dreaded word that starts with the letter “n” 27 years ago. Food Network fired her, Target and Wal-Mart have stopped carrying her products, and now Sears has booted her as well. In addition Deen is being trashed by Leftists at every turn. This despite her repeated apologies. Is this the future of America? A future were everyone has the freedom to speak, but is deathly afraid of using it? The Left, of course, is free to go Alec Baldwin all the time, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson have quite the history of saying racist, or Homophobic things, yet no outrage ensues. Tune into MSNBS any night and you can hear vile things said. Racism, check, Sexism, check, character assassinations left and right? Double  Check!  So this is not just about hypersensitivity is it?

Only certain people are targeted, usually Liberals are free to rant like lunatics, trashing White people, men, Southerners, and any minority that dares vote Republican. But Deen supported Obama in 2008. But she is a Southern woman, with a great accent, so maybe that is part of it. Southerners are all RAAAAACISTS according to Leftist doctrine, and it is always open season on Southerners, so maybe the Left just assumed Deen is a Conservative and jumped on her for the crime of being Southern.

Whatever it is, it is deeply troubling. This is the byproduct of PC, this is the natural evolution of Left’s obsession with “equality” and tolerance. The Left claims the moral high ground of sensitivity and tolerance, but anyone who dares challenge the guidelines of that tolerance is subject to having their  life destroyed. Paula Deen is the latest example, but she will not be the last. Her case might be the most absurd example, but more absurd examples will soon follow. Ultimately, this is a campaign by the Left to completely control the dialogue in America. They wish to tell us all what to think, and what to say. This is about Totalitarianism. That is what PC has evolved into isn’t it?

 

One thought on “Paula Deen and the war on freedom of speech

  1. My mother in law and grandmother in law would have been called racist too. They lived all their life in North Mississippi and everyone
    there called blacks “negro, or black, or nigger” one time or another.
    Good people did not see that as insulting, just the facts of culture in
    that part of the country. Just as in the North using, ” dago, kike, mick,
    etc.” So blacks can call whites anything they want, but the reverse is
    taboo. Ha, it’s all bullshit. Human culture is full of nicknames for just
    about everyone. Stop the hypocrisy!
