Aren't you overdue for a massive stroke, Tubby?

Is this because of his shiatty jump shot?

Charles Barkley has repeatedly ranted against cancel culture and continues to remain unapologetically brash despite the threat of being ostracized.

By whom? There's no Cancel Charles Barkley movement. He's mostly loved by NBA fans.
 
2021-09-27 8:59:31 PM  
...Barkley again lashed out at political correctness, only this time, he spread his resentment to include all Democrats and Republicans.

"Some of these people are just a**holes...

Just turrible.

Charles is beloved. He's also got a point.
 
2021-09-27 9:55:37 PM  
He's not wrong. I despise Democrats, but vote for them because I have to. But they're awful. Republicans are demonic, of course. I don't see this country fixing itself. Ever. Have a good night.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: He's not wrong. I despise Democrats, but vote for them because I have to.


It isn't "Democrats" or even "Republicans."  (I know, I know, but hear me out.)

The problem is politicians.  Just some examples from California and COVID:  Gavin Newsome (and London Breed) dining out against his own rule, Nancy Pelosi's unmasked hair appointment violation, Sam Liccardo's Thanksgiving, London Breed's karaoke violation, and so forth.  Excuses for one or two, sure, but come on.

For fark's sake, you are not helping by acting above the law - your own law.  Yeah, yeah, your job is tough.  Put on the damn mask and obey the rules

I honestly can not keep track of every state's hodgepodge of rules. But a rule and a law are different. Breaking a dinning rule is different than being a giant toddler in congress and carrying your gun or refusing to put on a mask, which is supposed to carry cecsure and jail time.

All a rule seems to do is give a private entity legal ground to kick you out as long as you are not violating normal public establishment laws. Biden's executive order seems to be the first rule that applies to everyone, besides individual states not run by sentient orange hairpieces. Those states have mandatory masks on government business, and failure means you get a police escort away.

Every time I hear about Barkley I think of the Kenan Thompson impersonation.
 
2021-09-27 11:56:39 PM  
Charlies right you know.

His entire life has been in negotiated contracts.

If you fire him he still gets paid.Considering he also had people calling to fire him his whole life, he might not be adverse to one last run on that Merry-Go-Round. It is kinda his thing after all.
 
2021-09-27 11:59:37 PM  
I need Mulder and Scully to dissect the media streams of Barkley, Jim Breuer, Nicki Minaj, Rose McGowan, probably more celebrities.

You're going to find Kremlin or I'm buying you two a pancake breakfast.

It's nice that you have the luxury of being allowed to hold yourself apart from the system because you were essentially given the equivalent of a farking permanent title of nobility and complete de facto immunity to all laws and consequences as the result of being able to farking throw an inflated plastic sphere around competently, bro.  I'm happy for you and shiat.

Now take your shiatty opinions, shove them up your ass, and fark right off.  In whatever order allows you to accomplish the "farking off" part the fastest.  You have loads of unmerited wealth laying around to which you can fark off, don't hang around pretending that farking right the fark off hasn't been made sufficiently convenient for you.

Stopped reading right there.
"cancel culture" is nothing but having to face the consequences of your words and actions. Anyone who rants agaist it wants to do or say anything and not have to pay the price. I don't bother to listen to people like that.

Cancel culture is bonkers. It's not just nazis saying racist things and needing to be shut down.

It's also people saying things that they disagree with the zeitgeist of at the moment. Its called opinion. And in some instances common sense.

You should learn punctuation before you criticize other people for simple mistakes when typing.

You know, the horrid kitten and puppy killer and human murderer, Luka Magnotta, placed a space before and after commas.

It is a thing, but like many things today, the marketing buzz term is not very accurate. It is also more individual disorganized groups then a national movement.

At this point in time, people complaining about Democrats reminds me of Larry Niven/Jerry Pournelle's description of the concept of 'Crazy Eddie' from "The Mote in God's Eye'.  Paraphrased - Imagine a city grown to the point where workers must toil tirelessly to ensure that food and water come into the city and waste is properly managed in a razor's edge equilibrium.  Crazy Eddie is the guy who picks that moment to lead the garbagemen out on strike for better working conditions.

Night Train to Wakanda: your tone policing


Isn't complaining about "cancel culture" just another form of "tone policing?" Instead of actually addressing criticism, supposed victims of cancel culture essentially dismiss criticism as "mean" so as to give themselves cover.

Conservatives get shouted down cos their ideas are consistently cruel and stupid.
