HBGWHEM 29.0 WINNING! and Losing
Two men made anti-semitic remarks last week. Neither man was right to make the remarks, and there was clear evidence that both remarks were made in a hateful manner.
One man was caught on a context-less camera phone video making drunken, anti-semitic pro-Nazi remarks in bar. He was not in the scope of his employment when making the remarks. The man, a master of his craft and known eccentic, was villified by everyone around him, brought up on charges and, his job, which he performed impeccably well for 15 years, was snatched away from him.
The other man, ex-star of a middle of the road, 80 IQ sitcom, made anti-semetic remarks in statements and text messages, all allegedly not under the infulence of drugs or alcohol, but that’s certainly a highly debatable assertation in itself. This man became a folk hero on the internet overnight, with companies clamoring to pay him for a celebrity endorsement.
Here’s the rub when you join the PC police lynch mob, if you destory one person’s life over their words, every time someone makes a similar statement, you have to respond with the same outrage and demand the job calling retribution you did in the past.
John, you put out a fantastic collection today and while you may be suffering the consequences of some ugly words, your collection spoke beautifully of your talent.
