Paula Deen, the down-home, country-cookin’ chef who spreads butter on her butter and sprinkles powdered diabetes on her chocolate lard bacon balls, found herself in the midst of a leftist-fueled controversy over the weekend. And what a totally, completely stupid controversy it is.
Deen used what fascists say non-blacks must refer to as “the N-word” in the past (gasp!) and has now been fired from her Food Network program because of it.
Here’s a summary from The Huffington Post:
“Court records show Deen sat down for a deposition May 17 in a discrimination lawsuit filed last year by a former employee who managed Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House, a Savannah restaurant owned by Deen and her brother, Bubba Hiers. The ex-employee, Lisa Jackson, says she was sexually harassed and worked in a hostile environment rife with innuendo and racial slurs.”
Apparently Deen was one of those racial-slurring transgressors.
“During the deposition, Deen was peppered with questions about her racial attitudes. At one point she’s asked if she thinks jokes using the N-word are ‘mean.’”
Not only must she not use whatever language she wants, but she must think the right thoughts; she is required to think that “the N-word” is “mean.” Bunch of goose-steppers.
I care more about the left’s fascistic treatment of Paula Deen over mere words—words!—than about the words Deen used. Outrage over her is beyond absurd.
Deen is not a racist. Just as the use of words typically used by scientists does not make one a scientist, the use of words typically used by racists does not make one a racist. Deen obviously has no problem with blacks; she campaigned for Obama in 2008, voted for him, and is a personal friend of Mrs. Obama, who was once a guest on Deen’s program to scarf down a bunch of food.
Deen says “the N-word” and she is shamed into publicly flogging herself and feeling such guilt that I truly worry about her harming herself. Rappers say “the N-word” like it’s the word “the,” and they get special access to the White House.
If only Paula Deen had been behind the four American deaths in Benghazi, she’d be considered a shoe-in for the Democratic presidential ticket in 2016.
