Evidently, Cynthia McKinney has never been taught how to lose with grace.
What I want to know -- and I feel I deserve an answer to -- is why does Cynthia McKinney get a pass on this crap?
Watch this video, courtesy of Ms Underestimated, and explain to me just why the hell nobody in politics or the MainStream Media jumps down Cynthia's throat?
Why is this?
If I had said just one of the slurs that were bandied around so freely by Ms. McKinney and her entourage, my furry arse would be burned in effigy on the court-house lawn.
There'd be editorials full of outrage by highly-placed newspaper staffers demanding my head on a pike, talking heads would be opining at length about my character...
For Cynthia -- business as usual.
Does anyone here think I could call any Africa-American an "Uncle Tom" during an interview on national TeeVee, and not get roasted, sued, and investigated for civil rights violations?
So, why does Cynthia McKinney get a pass on it?
Is it because she's a woman? Is it because she's black? Is it because she's a Democrat?
Why? Why does she get to operate on a different set of rules than me?
Mel Gibson gets drunk, fires off some slurs concerning Jews, and he winds up on FoxNews and CNN every 15 minutes.
Has anyone even seen a report about this, much less a rotating one every 15 minutes?
Gibson's stupidity got him an article in every major newspaper, his anti-semetic comments were repeated with lip-smacking relish, and editorials were dedicated to him.
Anybody seen anything about McKinney? Has CNN run any of the anti-semetic comments from this incident?
Once -- just once -- I'd like a MainStream Media person to sit down and tell me that they believe that all animals are equal, but that some animals are more equal than other animals.
Just once, I'd like them to tell me that behavior that they won't tolerate from white male me, is perfectly acceptable behavior from anyone else who isn't white, male, or me.
It's bushwa, it's obvious bushwa, and I'm getting tired of the MainStream Media's obvious bias.
