Cracker Barrel chose to stop selling some Duck Dynasty merchandise, that is fine, their business, their call, but their statement bothers my common sense.
The statement reads:
Cracker Barrel’s mission is Pleasing People. We operate within the ideals of fairness, mutual respect and equal treatment of all people. These ideals are the core of our corporate culture.
We continue to offer Duck Commander products in our stores.
We removed selected products which we were concerned might offend some of our guests while we evaluate the situation.
Mutual respect? What a silly thing to say. They made a decision that will please some folks and offend others. Had they chosen differently, they would have gotten similar results, just in reverse. I am really tired of this fake sensitivity. Cracker Barrel knew they would offend fans of Duck Dynasty by pulling merchandise, but, to Cracker Barrel, offending Christians, and those of us sick of bullies like GLAAD, is obviously preferable to offending publicity whores. In an effort not to offend, Cracker Barrel ends up offending many more people. I really wish these corporations would start realizing that appeasing emotional terrorists, yes, GLAAD, that would be you, is not a worthwhile aim.
And no, I man not going to boycott Cracker Barrel over this. First I have a strong distaste for boycotts no matter who does them. Secondly, I have been boycotting Cracker Barrel for years over their horrible food.
Good grief the Narcissism and childishness of the Left is astounding.
More crushing injustice on campus, this time at the UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies:
In a letter sent to colleagues in the department after the sit-in, [Professor] Rust said students in the demonstration described grammar and spelling corrections he made on their dissertation proposals as a form of “micro-aggression.” “I have attempted to be rather thorough on the papers and am particularly concerned that they do a good job with their bibliographies and citations, and these students apparently don’t feel that is appropriate,” Rust said in the letter.
You see, by highlighting spelling and punctuation errors, the professor is contributing to an “unsafe climate for students of colour.” For those of you interested in the policing of tiny tragedies, “micro-aggressions” are defined by one official report as,
Subtle verbal and nonverbal insults directed toward non-whites, often done automatically and unconsciously. They are layered insults based on one’s race, gender, class, sexuality, language, immigration status, phenotype, accent, or surname
The victim culture runs very deep it seems, and that is exactly how the Left likes it! Their mission? Keep those minorities bitter, and perpetually poorly educated!
And not just any old race pimpin’ either! Oh no, we have none other than Je$$e Jack$on who thinks the Confederacy is still around.
Is it me, or are Democrats playing the Confederacy Card a lot recently? Really showing their desperation now. They are like a bunch of vampires locked out of a blood bank as the sun is rising.
I do not watch much TV, but I love this new show Sleepy Hollow on Fox. Two reasons are Nicole Beharie, and Katia Winter. There is also an actor I am sure the ladies will like Tom Mison. Here are some pics and a video clip of the show
Seems that Live Leak banned Froglegs, for absolutely no reason, so did Vimeo, and YouTube is hassling him over “possible” copyright infringement for using HIS OWN stuff! It would seem that he must be doing something right, which is why the Left is attacking. Joe Dan explains his situation here
Good Freaking Grief! There are buffoons, and Williams is definitely one. I cannot grasp why anyone would pay attention to anything this clown says
Melissa Harris Perry is so obsessed with race that she really sees Gitmo detainees as equal in any way with slaves? This is what passes for intelligence at MSNBS?
When a picture like this surfaces, rumors might start. Also people might start wondering how anyone is intimidated by this clown who likes to bully people who cannot stand up for themselves. Some might also question why a major credit card company would pay Mr. Temper Tantrum to do their commercials when he has such a long record of abusive behavior.
