I endure Helmet Head “interview” so-called therapist and megalomaniac Dr. Laura so you don’t have to. That, and the cheap hathos.
Of course she played the victim. Somehow her enemies forced her to say the N-word 11 times in order to limit her free speech.
I suppose businesses should be required by the federal government to employ conservatives even when they say stupid and offensive things — the kind of stuff that would cost the normal working slob their job.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
In other words, Congress can’t fire you for being a racist asshole, but your employer can.
Congress also cannot pass a law spelling out who may or may not say the N-word. Society will make its own rule that is subject to change. If you find the imperative about the N-word unfair well, life’s unfair. Sorry you can’t scream epithets with absolution.
Besides, haven’t black people earned the right to govern use of the N-word? Call it the wages of sin (Jim Crow, in this case) clause. Personally I think it’s healthy to own your pejorative, thus my judicious use of the F-word. It’s one of the few perks, though it’s nothing compared to the perk of free air time to air grievances and play the victim, absolution guaranteed.
Wanna trade, Dr. Laura?
