Joy Behar next to Feel the Axe of Political/Racial Correctness?


#121

Lol at calling that blackface and comparing it to someone in a KKK uniform.

Intent matters, any reasonable person sees the difference; and yes, neither is acceptable, but they are not the same.


#122

Isn’t that culture appropriation? Or is it just when a Republican does it?


#123

This would be closer, tacky, but not the same.


#124

Megan Kelly opened her mouth up last year…and rightly got fired for it (just like Kathy Griffin got ejected from the CNN tower for her severed head stunt in 2017).

Joy Behar’s actions were 30 years ago. And to punish her now (or anyone else for that matter) is damned stupid, not to mention smacking of a witch hunt.

If you are going to punish her, you are 30 years too late.


#125

Tell that to Ted Danson, Billy Crystal, and Gene Wilder. :wink:


#126

So it’s okay if it’s on Halloween … and you are a liberal?

The rules are so confusing … :frowning:


#127

It’s fun to watch you guys fall all over yourselves trying to rationalize this after your prior condemnations. :blush:


#130

Then explain it. When is it permissible and when is it not.

For example, is it permissible for a black kid to dress up as Abe Lincoln? And if so/not, why?


#131

What’s not blackface?


#132

Before I was 18 I’d spent time in more than 30 states, Washington DC and I actually watched not only the news but the weekend talking head shows.


#133

Catholic boys having a “blackout day” is “blackface”. Making yourself up to be a black woman for a party is fine as long as you’re on the approved list of leftwing talking heads.

Get it now?


#135

IT’s pretty simple, if one is wrong so is the other. I’m not the one with an inconsistency problem here.


#137

If this isn’t offensive neither was the Catholic School’s blackout day.


#138

I thought it was funny that Megyn Kelly left Fox News, and
then got fired at NBC.

Joy Behar should be fired in general.


#139

Well considering Halloween is the only time you would get a chance to observe what was acceptable for adult costumes I am impressed that you spent Halloween in 30 states by your 18th birthday. Very industrious on your part.


#140

Why would they fire the person who epitomizes what their show is all about?


#141

Eh, they compete against like Judge Judy and Maury Povich? I love how the right is so worried about a bunch of ladies talking to daytime television consumers.


#142

Where did anyone use the word “worried”?


#143

That would be due to the fact that I even know the show still exists (thanks to the CECs obsession), this thread being the latest iteration.


#144

Don’t be silly. This is a discussion board and we’re just talking here.
