You didn't even do 10 seconds of checking to make sure that you weren't making an obviously wrong statement? Bold choice Cotton.Recusant said:Judaism is not an ethnicity; it's a religion.Disco Biscuit said:If you think a paragraph allowed you to conflate an ethnicity/religion with an attitude, you were wrong.Recusant said:Andy Shandy said:Plus not to mention that by most accounts Hulk Hogan seems to be a racist, politicking piece of shit.I don't follow wrestling, so I know next to nothing about it. But (and correct me if I'm wrong here; in that case, my point doesn't apply as much in this specific instance, though it's still something you should bear in mind) didn't Hogan spouting that racist stuff come as a surprise to his fans? That is, his actions didn't reflect this bias? Because if so, you really have nothing to complain about. It's peoples actions that make them worthy of praise or condemnation, not their beliefs. If someone believes that members of other races are inferior to their own, but treats them no differently, there's really no problem there. It doesn't reflect well on them, and there's always the chance that their behaviors will change, but that's true of anyone no matter what they believe.Disco Biscuit said:It's weird though, because FUCK that racist hot dog, but he still deserves his privacy.
Judge deeds, not thoughts. Condemning someone for being "racist" is no different from condemning someone for being "Jewish".
I could go on, but you have Google too, right?
Don't compare the bird shit that Gawker cranked out with Gonzo Journalism.Corey Schaff said:Just goes to show that this is where Gonzo Journalism ends; when you piss off somebody powerful enough to punch back, and you no longer have a foundation of seeking objectivity to fall back on as a defense and a way to rally public support.
Doing the Hunter S. Thompson thing can be good, but not if everybody's Hunter S. Thompson.
