it isn't like he's running the country or anything so i'm just gonna ignore him.
 
2019-02-05 12:55:03 PM  
I respect that he's willing to share the story and admit to feeling shame for his actions.  Trauma can cause good people to want to do bad things. What separates them from bad people is that they snap out of it and feel bad about it.

He's a good man and he's good for talking about this. Americans tend to be derpy about people growing and learning. You can't say these things here.

Whole lots white people in trouble if you search out 40 years of their lives for something racist they might've done.

I grew up in a very socially-liberal household. My dad took me to civil rights events as a kid in 1970s Alabama to see the good and bad on display. But I know I laughed at horrible  racist jokes without a thought too. Thank God FB was not a thing.

We all have sinned.

I called this yesterday and some dipshiat played the "sounds like someone is emotional" card. People refuse to accept that any famous people can make mistakes, grow and change, especially here on Fark.

But I 100% called this. Even the author of the article pretended like this was going to go away. Not as long as their are digital torches and pitchforks for the internet to gather up, it won't.

Well, I think that's a *little* different than going out and trying to find a random minority to beat to death.

That being said, I think people should be able to atone for things they have done in their past so long as they actually are up front and admit to it having been wrong and have shown over time they've done good.

Dodge around about it like the gov of VA and you don't get much slack from me.

I don't see the problem.  He is acknowledging and confronting a racist past.  Isn't that what we want?  He wouldn't be talking about it if he didn't see it as a mistake and something he grew out of.

He should be lauded for his honesty and holding himself accountable for his past.

The worst kind of racist is the racist that thinks they're not racist.  We are all prejudiced, no matter how muchas would like to think we're not.  In that context, it's more important to acknowledge our prejudices and try to correct them than it is to pretend our shiat doesn't stink.

I'm with Liam here, he did a good thing (now, not back then).

I guess it's always best to learn from mistakes others make rather than make them yourself, so at least some good came of it.

Yup, and it's important to note he shared this on his own.  He's not apologizing for it after somebody caught him.

Bull. shiat.
 
2019-02-05 01:44:48 PM  
Always remember that at one point in his career, David Bowie was making Nazi salutes and in fact rape a young woman.

He then went to Germany, got his shiat together, recorded and produced six of the best albums in rock history (and introduced DEVO to the world), married  a Somalian supermodel, and has been the poster boy of inclusion ever since.

I'm just saying, there is always chance to redeem yourself. As long as you have not taken a life, there is always a path forward to undo the hate you brought into the world, because sometimes it isn't even your fault. Yeah, everybody has a chance of redemption, otherwise, what's the point?

Good on you Liam. You could have easily ended up a racist old crank like James Woods, but you took a power walk, watched yourself in Schindler's List again, and figured it out. Keep going in that direction, you'll be fine. And Fark the SJWs that want to impede your healing journey instead of acknowledging it for what it is.

My brief flirtation with mid-'90s gangsta rap vernacular in college saw me saying more than my fair share of things that simply would not fly if taken out of context.  Or in context, probably.

I was waaaaay past old enough to know better before hearing someone say "Puerto Rican" didn't automatically conjure an image in my mind of some sort of matted-haired, atavistic wildman, because as kids we used to try & scare each other by claiming we'd seen or heard "an escaped Puerto Rican" in the woods, and then dare each other to go looking for him.

Thank god I escaped my hometown, but I know I've brought my share of fleas with me.

True. Trump has said he's never been to confession because he doesn't believe he's ever done anything wrong and who are to judge this horrible, petty, petulant crybaby?

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: He's a good man and he's good for talking about this. Americans tend to be derpy about people growing and learning. You can't say these things here.



Maybe by hearing him talk about his feelings, people will relate and find his level of self-awareness. Or maybe people will see the social media backlash and decide it's better to never talk about these things. He's doing 1,000x more to advance the conversation than any of the SJW's slamming him are.

Yes, much more fun that trying to fight against unapologetic Nazis who have no regrets and want to murder your family.  Those Nazis are ok, but if any if them expresses any doubts or regrets... burn them!
 
2019-02-05 01:49:55 PM  
I don't see anything either. Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) used to be a part of the KKK, but he saw the error of his ways. Liam did as well. Life is a journey, and sometimes people are bound up into something that is bad, and then they look back at it and realize that it was bad.

If you don't look at Robert Byrd and Liam Neeson in the same way, then you are a hypocrite and a Republican talking point. Byrd was a huge Hillary ally.

No, I think we've established that's not laudable at all.  Nobody is pretending what he did was laudable, least of all him.

What's laudable is the fact that he owned up to it and changed.

Jesus, you must be a miserable human being to only ever hang around people with a perfect past.  Thankfully, I've also done shiatty things I feel ashamed of in my life, so I'll never have to suffer from being around you.

What has Liam Neeson done to fight rapists and help rape victims?
Anything?

An urge to commit a hate crime doesn't help. It just proves Neeson, like Peesident Defendant, indulges in anger to fool him mind into making him feel powerful when he is weak.

Anger indulgence is weakness.
