austerity101: rynthetyn: ALL GIRLS AGREE TO PULL PANTIES DOWN: rynthetyn: If anyone I know ever tried to use the, "I have a gay friend," defense against charges for bigotry, I'd be calling a press conference to denounce them that very day.

If you want to read the lesbian equivalent to that guy "shooting starbursts into a crusty sock," Camille Paglia's totally obvious dyke-crush on Sarah Palin is ridiculous.

She even PRAISES Sarah Palin's innate ability to slaughter the English language:

"She uses language with the jumps, breaks and rippling momentum of a be-bop saxophonist."

Camille Paglia is tiresome. I'm pretty sure she just takes whatever position is directly opposite what the liberal establishment happens to think. Of course that means praising Sarah Palin, what would get her more attention?

She's the Armond White of feminism.


Wow. That's the perfect description. Brava!

I could be like Sara Palin and try and talk using big words I don't normally use in every day speech. I cringe every time I hear her speak. You know she doesn't talk like that at the dinner table.

evilmrsock: Bucky Katt: Bloody William: fusillade762: Anyone want to try parsing this word salad for me?

No. Sarah Palin has discovered that she doesn't have to actually say anything, she just needs to string together words long enough for whoever's "interviewing" her to nod and it'll be taken as something uttered in English that deserves consideration by someone with a central nervous system. She realizes that she doesn't need to actually use  language anymore.

That's the best explanation I've seen thus far.

I've got a better one for you. Sarah Palin is actually  meow says the dog.

True. Some of us refuse to be  froth-at-the-mouth fascists. Some of us have a well developed sense of fair play developed during our redneck upbring  that prompts us to speak up when we see something unjust, even against our idealogical enemies. Again, I'd like to point out the similarities between this situation and the All-American Muslim dust-up.

Here we have some reality stars expressing politcal views heavily influenced by their religion.
"After the Iranian revolution, people were really being more consciously aware of Islam," oldest sister Suehaila Amen, 32, explained. They began to learn about the faith.
"My mother and all my aunts were putting on the head scarf at the time, and I was trying to be like them, following in their footsteps. ... Everyone else was doing it. We wanted to do it, too."

 http://www.freep.com/article/20111113/FEATURES01/111130373/TLC-s-ne w-s eries-All-American-Muslim-illustrates-diversity-Islamic-women

Then we had a group complain and a company distance itself from the political views that might be attached to their brand and some said things like this.

"Sen. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) called the move "bigoted, shameful, and un-American."
   and
" Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the first Muslim American elected to Congress, issued a statement condemning Lowe's for deciding to "uphold the beliefs of a fringe hate group and not the creed of the 1st Amendment."

http://articles.latimes.com/2011/dec/13/business/la-fi-lowes-muslim- 20 111213

Why would anyone defend a group who implicity agrees with the death penalty for homosexuals with the approval of the Khomeini regime yet rail against this man? Partisan politics, that's why.  Anything for a vote.

Where did these people say they believed in the death penalty for homosexuals or supported Iran's current regime?  If anything this person was demonstrating beyond the stereotype that Muslims have to be rigid fundamentalists which is why Lowes was pressured to cut its sponsorship by conservative groups.

whcrow: Sgt Otter: StopLurkListen: Here's what Sarah Palin is defending:

"I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person," Robertson is quoted in GQ. "Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash. We're going across the field.... They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, 'I tell you what: These doggone white people'-not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues." --A&E star Phil Robertson

Yeah, because when black people under Jim Crow were complaining about how awful they were being treated by the white establishment, they'd be sure to do it within earshot of another white person.


It's hard for people that grew up being racist in the city to accept there were/are places where it's not a problem.


Okay I just got back to this thread. First you wanted to play the whole marriage is a religious institution game and I'm okay with that. I f you look at it from a very short sighted narrow minded way yep that can be an issue. Not really when taken in context with the meaning of marriage from a  stand point of the civil law but okay you get half a point of credibility on that one.

The racist stuff about how its just about where you grew up is Racist Conservative Revisionist History 101 bs. It was a problem everywhere. I AM FROM THE SOUTH. MY FAMILY IS FROM THE SOUTH. Was there clear economic racism in the cities. Absolutely. But black people weren't being hung from the lampposts on 12th and Porter in downtown they were being hung out in the woods by redneck scum. Even today people who I know in law school who are normally completely nice rational people about everything else, hate black people because they are from BFE Tennessee and if people didn't look down on them so much for it they might still be lynching them.

Robertsons comments are an insult to the millions of Southerners who worked to end Jim Crow. Im not saying millions worked for equal rights or integration but the system of laws as they stood were an anathema to the moral sensibilities of many.

The truth of racism in the South that Robertson doesn't want to admit to is that white people were not asked to sit at the back of the bus. White people were not discriminated against and intimated away from polling places. White people were not being hung by their neighbors or hiding in terror from burning crosses on their lawns. Robertson's comment on race should have kept him off the air, or at least any reputable channel, permanently.

I said implicit and I didn't mention Iran's current regime. The author explains that there was a religious revival in the community after the Iranian revolution, more commonly  known to Americans as the Hostage Crisis. That's the part that pissed off the fundamentalists.

This interview is not the same as the one in GQ.

"I've read the Quran three times," says Amen, referring to Islam's holy text. "I know a lot about the religion. I was raised with it, going to all the Islamic Sunday schools growing up. Because I don't follow it to a T, that doesn't make me any less of a Muslim. Because in the end, it's God who's judging us, and I think he and I are cool."

 There, she says the same thing  Robertson said, the difference being the fact that the interviewer didn't question her as to what parts of the Quran she doesn't follow to a T or "what is sinful".

They're very cautious about not demonstrating beyond the stereotype that Muslims have to be rigid fundamentalists.

"I don't want to give people the impression the things I'm doing are synonymous with Islam."
She cautions that people should not judge her faith by her actions on the show.


"I'm here as a Muslim," Amen says. "But I'm not here to represent Islam. Nobody on the show is running for the Muslim of the Year award. No one is trying to represent the religion as a whole."

 Nowhere in the article do they even broach any uncomfortable truths about Islam and homosexuality. They merely mention the struggle of whether or not to she has to cover her head .
Clearly, unlike the interview with another religious reality star, no one in the media or the company was trying to give an accurate representation of the religion in this instance or any others. Some people had a problem with that. That why there was a dust up.

I didn't know any better until I got older and made it to the city and found out what was really going on. granted this was early 60's and maybe I missed the era.

In one version of the story, Sarah's encounter with Rice took place in her sister Molly's dorm room at the University of Alaska Anchorage. "She hauled his ass down," a friend says, "but she freaked out afterward. Hysterical, crying,totallyflipped out.

If you have to go back 4 generations and you are pointing it out in this thread it is a Big Deal to you.
And you are the one who pointed out that your Dad's best friend was black, so if it is so important that you are sharing it in this thread it must be a big deal to you, either having a black friend is no big deal and you wouldn't even mention it or, if is remarkable that a white dude would have a black guy as his friend and therefore worth mentioning in a thread .

The problem they had was that it didn't satisfy the fundies stereotype that all followers of Islam are rabid terrorists who hate America so they pressured Lowes to drop it as an advertiser.  Instead it depicted American Muslims as actual people who are just as moderate about their religious views like most Christians are in this country.  Shocking!

wellreadneck: There, she says the same thing Robertson said, the difference being the fact that the interviewer didn't question her as to what parts of the Quran she doesn't follow to a T or "what is sinful".


Um yeah, if she said that she equated homosexuality with bestiality I'm sure it would have gotten the same reception that Robertson did.  It was never that Robertson was a Christian; it was due to him being an asshole and embarrassing the network in the process.  The irony is that Christians supporting Robertson have more in common with fundamentalist Muslims than this moderate woman who emigrated from Iran.

spongeboob: whcrow: spongeboob: whcrow: All I can talk to is personal experience where I grew up and my dads best friend was black and I was welcome in their house and they were welcome in mine. I grew up playing with them they grew up playing with me. Same with the Mexicans.. Still taste the homemade tamales and miss them. I didn't know any better until I got older and made it to the city and found out what was really going on. granted this was early 60's and maybe I missed the era. So in a sense I lived what he was talking about, so it was possible. Wasn't a problem everywhere.

Wait you are a self described mulatto, but it is a big deal that your dad had a black friend so i guess that means your parents and yourself can pass as white, and since you were a little kid in the sixties, who was either white or could pass for white, and didn't see any racial problems there were no racial problems?


You would have to go back 4 generations to have the mulatto on the census records that describe my family. Who said anything about it being a big deal? Must be a big deal to you, are you a racist?

If you have to go back 4 generations and you are pointing it out in this thread it is a Big Deal to you.
And you are the one who pointed out that your Dad's best friend was black, so if it is so important that you are sharing it in this thread it must be a big deal to you, either having a black friend is no big deal and you wouldn't even mention it or, if is remarkable that a white dude would have a black guy as his friend and therefore worth mentioning in a thread .


Am I a racist let people read this thread and my other posts on Fark and come to their own conclusions, claiming no i am not a racist really doesn't prove anything does it?



So you are saying you are a racist. You seem to be a racist to me.

The only one making a big deal about what I've posted about my experiences and my family origins is you. You seem to have some latent racist tendency that won't let you accept someone has experienced something different than you. Because in your mind because you are racist it's impossible for someone else not to be. Everyone has to take on the way you think. You can't stand the fact that someone is different from you. That difference makes you nervous because deep down you hate everyone. You can't stand that someone on the other side of you political agenda is comfortable with black blood running thru their veins.  Pretty pathetic really, I feel sorry for you.

Fart_Machine: wellreadneck: Nowhere in the article do they even broach any uncomfortable truths about Islam and homosexuality. They merely mention the struggle of whether or not to she has to cover her head .
Clearly, unlike the interview with another religious reality star, no one in the media or the company was trying to give an accurate representation of the religion in this instance or any others. Some people had a problem with that. That why there was a dust up.

The problem they had was that it didn't satisfy the fundies stereotype that all followers of Islam are rabid terrorists who hate America so they pressured Lowes to drop it as an advertiser.  Instead it depicted American Muslims as actual people who are just as moderate about their religious views like most Christians are in this country.  Shocking!

No, what Lowes did was take note of the fundies outcry and then distance themselves from followers of Islam who might appear to hate America due to the religious revival that swept their community in the wake of actual rabid terrorists who hated America killing Americans and holding them hostage when establishing a fundamentalist Islamic theocracy.

Of course there are Muslims who aren't homophobic. 
Had they asked her about the Quran and homosexuality, she would have had to embarass the network in the process of answering and then have had to distance herself from Islam to avoid being an asshole while receiving a reception comparable to that of Robertson's from the fundamentalist Muslims. But that didn't happen in this depiction of moderate Muslims. They made sure the subject of sin wasn't brought up.
The point is how differently we treated Christianity and Islam in this situation . We didn't ask the same questions to each. We avoided placing the Muslim in an uncomfortable  position due to a respect for their faith or maybe a fear of reprisal. We had no such qualms with the Christian preacher.

I prefer my mental image of spongeboob crying himself to sleep after coming to the realization that he's a racist.
