Wake up and milk the chickens
Why the heck is there more outrage in the media over a cook using racial slurs 30 years ago than there has been over a President who has stood up more for our enemies than he has for the Constitution he took an oath to Protect and Defend? Priorities people, obviously ours are wrong.
This morning Matt Laure (?) on one of the morning shows was grilling (pun intended) Paula Dean about her usage of “The N word”. Why is this news, why is this a bigger story than the continuous drone strikes we are using to assassinate terrorists and everyone within a hundred yards from them. Why is the news focused more on Paula Dean’s stupidity than on an Administration that wants to open negotiations with the Taliban? And why, oh why, is the media focused on the usage of “the N word” when women and children in so many parts of the world are sold into slavery in the sex trade.
The media is using this, and other irrelevant stories to keep people distracted from what is going on in the world. If we focus on celebrity mistakes we won’t pay attention to stuff that matters. It is a distraction, and the media uses it well. And sadly we just keep on letting them do it because we keep paying attention to it.
Is racism of any kind wrong, absolutely? Is there a place for racism in today’s world absolutely not? Should this be a story that leads off a news report, sorry no.
Please people wake up; it is time to milk the chickens
