I can't believe I have to write this post. I run this blog the way I do, with absolute freedom of speech because we all know what happens to forums that ban people for free expression.
I will not ban Mr. Wonderful for his comments because he did not attack anyone here personally, unlike many others of you who can't manage to start talking without blasting an insult my way. He never attributed the "racist" remark to Obama, in fact he further stated:
Granted, Barry never said this ... at least, not to my knowledge. (It would make for one hell of a blog if he did!) But as inflammatory as those two little words might seem, they should give you Obama Apologists a good idea as to how some whites regard Barry's associations and their somewhat questionable views on race ... and his (white) grandmother. And try as he might, ol' Barry still hasn't been able to fully reconcile that with some white voters.
He tried repeatedly to engage but was rebuffed, insulted and DISRESPECTED by many of the regular commenters right away. Day 1.
Many of you are offended by his words. Guess what? I'm offended regularly, not by Mr. Wonderful but by many of my friends here. If you want me to start quoting, it could get very uncomfortable for some of you. Friends say things, in the heat of the moment, but still some of it is really vicious. I was ready to pull the plug on the blogging thing because I was sick of being your personal Conservative whipping girl. I didn't. Instead, I brought in back up.
Mr. Wonderful is a close, personal friend of mine. He was treated woefully on his first day here but still he persisted. Many of you welcomed him by savagely ripping him to shreds and he responded in kind. You treat people in the manner you wish to be treated. He came here as my guest, my friend and I hoped my other friends would give him a fair shake. It didn't happen but I have some hope that it will. You all are my friends and your continued visits to my corner of the world are important to me. Mr. Wonderful is my friend, he is someone that is very important to me and he isn't going anywhere. Maybe now that you all know that, you can try again. If you don't want to, I understand. No hard feelings.
