Too bad most "progressives" or "liberals" don't really care about either of them. I find it funny how "political correctness" is something that only conservatives cling to now.
You are the 1st poster I belive to point out that it is now the conservatives clinging to political correctness. Quite tronic. How we have been mocked in the past for the same thing by them.
I also find it ironic it that the leader of the charge in defending Deen aims his vitriol at us instead of the corporate sponsors who severed their ties with her. This, a poster who is in support of capitalism. Well welcome to capitalism in work via Deen.
Progressives know if you really care that much about the suppossed mistreatment of another human being, you go right to the source. You start a grassroots campaign to make the comanies rethink their position. It is not reinventing the wheel. It is just taking a lesson from us.
That takes effort. More effort than post after post on an anonymous forum.
Between these posts and some on the VRA decision it occurred to me we do not have a left and right thing like some would like to paint it, but a North and South thing...our own mini Civil War.
This much time and energy spent on the state of Deen's career is pretty flipping ridiculous. The woman's chickens came home to roost. Image is a huge part of celebrity. Now deal with it like the big girl you are....and your fan base as well.
And notice, we progressives did not go off on every conservative celebrity and their transgressions. That would be a long long list. Could eat up the rest of the summer.
You do know that Deen is a big time liberal Democrat and Obama supporter, don't you?
"Television chef Paula Deen, who lost her gig Friday with the Food Network after admitting and apologizing for having used racial epithets, including the “N-word,” is a supporter of President Barack Obama and campaigned on his behalf in 2008.
The Southern-bred television personality also invited Michelle Obama onto one of her television programs and praised the first lady’s healthy eating agenda.

Skeeter..is this true..??? If yes..then I guess that makes CLC's OP..and all the subsequent faux outrage by self proclaimed conservatives seem rather ridiculous.
Exactly on Paula Deen.
And Alec Baldwin has had a foundation for breast cancer for years.
This is not because as a celebrity he might feel he "needs" a charity. His mother fought and beat breast cancer.
Like most women, I have seen breast cancer up close and personal. It runs rampant in my husband's family. Add that to women friends, colleages and others I am no stranger to breast cancer.
1 out of 8 (12%) of women get breast cancer. And as they saying goes...100% of women worry about getting breast cancer.
Shine a microscope on anybody, you will usually find there is the good and the bad. Celebrities have a big spotlight on them that we ordinary folk do not.
Women are over half the population in the U.S. Under the category of good, a foundation dedicated towards this horrible disease comes out as pretty darn good.
Too bad those who want to cannot paint him as total pond scum.
You do know that Paula Deen, Obama supporter and campaigner, had breast cancer?
See, waht is funny here, is that progressives have been caught by the trap of their bigotted views on southerners. Paula Deen, strange accent, uneducated, southerner, so she must be a knuckledragging conservative TEA partier.
Turns out she is a progressive, supported Obama so much that she campaigned for him.
It is always fun to show the progressives their own bigotted blind side.
