I understand that the Internet is awful. But for serious, this is disgusting. First off, as Tate notes, “The refs made the call not me.” So yeah, your anger is directed at the wrong person.

But even if the anger were focused like a laser at the right place, don’t call anyone a nigger or a cunt. Don’t wish anyone were raped.

I don’t know why this is difficult for some people. I believe in a rough and tumble debate (the other day I called some people shitheads). But racist and sexist shit is just stupid. And even random sports fans on the Internet can do better.

Yes, the term ‘cunt’ should be reserved for Republican women, particularly those who choose life even knowing that it will be challenging:

They’re conservative. They’ve got it coming.

@1 Glad to note that your knee-jerk reflexes are as sharp as ever but I’m at a loss to see how a post on crass language in football [or any professional sport] equates to partisan political commentary. Were I still teaching I would give your comment only a C- as you did not address the topic.

3. Serial Conservative spews:

@ 2

It’s a post on crass language. Football and proximity are just reasons to talk about it.

As long as we’re talking about it and Carl states ‘don’t call anyone a… cunt’, I felt I had license to insert a political perspective.

Were I in your class I’d probably be thinking of dropping it in favor of a course taught by someone else.

4. Serial Conservative spews:

Here’s another comment to infuriate wharfrat, who seems to prefer that no variation from topic occur.

Since we’re speaking of racism, here’s the Democrats’ latest offering. I’m not following this race much at all but apparently Matheson’s in some trouble:

Dems Darken Image of Black Republican House Candidate

Apparently the Time photo of OJ hasn’t taught Democrats much about what not to do if you don’t want to get caught.

SC,

What would you expect from wharfrat? He doesn’t react when the “cunt” word is used on conservative women. And Puddy posted some of those Mia Love attacks chronicled in your link earlier in the week.

Carl,

What is sad is the attacks on a person who chose to go to Notre Dame and learn football skills to be called a non-Christian.

Your grade just went from a C- to a D. The post is about using racist or sexists terms to refer to people. And, in case you hadn’t actually read the piece about Louis C K (as if anybody here actually thinks that Louis C K is any kind role model for public discourse), he didn’t refer to Ms. Palin as a vagina. He was talking about her vagina.

Talk about false equivalence. You really are a dipshit.

Um, OK, if you prefer to split hairs that way. Call it your moral victory. Yay for you.

It’s still crass language, whether he was designating her as a cunt or merely referring to her genitalia, as you prefer to maintain. In either instance, crass.

So Jon Doe, why do progressive libtards always need talk about conservative womens’ private parts in their speech? Heck Jill Biden was making commentary about Joe BiteMe’s wang a few days ago!

9. Gman spews:

Not sure what you all are complaining about? How about all the bigotry and negativity towards Homosexuals? Get a life you cunts!

“Since we’re speaking of racism”

Alright, we’ll talk racism, you cunt.

Bob is the one who says that Trayvon Martin, who was walking home from a 7/11 store, got what was coming to him. And why? Because Bob saw a fake tweet and some fake photos on a right-wing hate site. Long debunked, he still believes it. Why? Because Bob wants to believe it. Why? Because Bob is a goddamned fucking racist.

Who but a racxist would share his dream of white militias roaming the streets of Detroit shooting blacks?

11. No Time for Fascists spews:

Don’t forget his ridicule of the president’s daughter. He’s got Klass all over him.

12. Politically Incorrect - free minds, free markets, free people spews:

There are a lot of cunts in the world. Otherwise, men wouldn’t be interested in women at all.

As far as the Green Bay – Seahawks game is concerned, everyone should just remebmer that’s it’s a fucking game. That’s all it is – a game. No need to get wrapped around the axle about it.

13. Serial Conservative spews:

There was a joke in LA about two decades ago, when Georgia someone owned the Rams and NFL teams had 45 players on the roster.

The answer was:

Los Angeles Rams.

The question was:

What has 92 legs and a cunt?

14. Harry Poon spews:

If you called a disagreeable woman a quimface you might get a laugh. Is quimface PC?

15. Harry Poon spews:

re 13: What has six legs and yells: “Ho dee doe!!”

Three dusky brethren running for the elevator.

16. Puddybud spews:

Wow headless lucy@14 now wants to call women nasty names!

And a racist line@15. Way to go racist one!

17. Harry Poon spews:

@ 16 — Who are you, Quimface?

18. Puddybud spews:

Remember September 9-15, 2005 headless@17. You already admitted you were headless lucy once before poonface. Puddy sure ylbuttspigot can show you when!

19. Harry Poon spews:

re 18: Do it be racist or sexist to call you quimface?

20. Don Joe spews:

@ 7

It’s still crass language, whether he was designating her as a cunt or merely referring to her genitalia, as you prefer to maintain. In either instance, crass.

But it’s telling, is it not, that the sexism or racism doesn’t bother you quite so much as the crass language bothers you. Shouldn’t it be the other way around?

@ 8

Contrasted against the so-called “small government” conservatives who insist on passing laws telling women what they can and cannot do with their private parts, talking about these private is infinitely more polite.
