    Listen to the whole thing, if you have the stomach. It gets worst at the end. Is this an example of inclusion? Equality? Free speech? Would Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, or any conservative remain on the air for the duration of his show with this kind of virulent attack?

    Is the Democratic Party the home of virulent black racists? If I were Charlotte Bergman's man, Mr. Matthews would have a heaping serving of whup *ss coming.

    To be fair, nobody's ever heard of that clown whereas everyone's heard of Rush.

    Nice try. We can find obscure people on both sides of the aisle. In contrast, it is important spokespeople for the Republican party, such as Rush, who are egregious.

    No, everyone hasn't heard of, or more so actually heard Rush. And there is a severe reality gap if anyone can even put the two people in the same category, other than their employment.

    To be fair, I checked and Matthews is off the air fired, and the station changed formats, which probably means local management was also purged because of this racist moron.

    The questions remain, is there a double standard, and is hatred the stock and trade of the Democratic party? Has anyone heard of Bill Maher?

    So where does that leave your OP?

    So Rush is "egregious"? On what basis, since you don't seem to find Matthews so bad after all. He's just "obscure".

    It is even often demonstrable in this very forum that leftists tend to attack conservatives and libertarians ad-homonym regularly.

    On the matter of the facts, is any black who supports the tea party an uncle tom or house negro? Should all blacks dutifully support Barrack Obama to prove their blackness? Is agreeing with white people grounds for ostracism and derision?

    It is just fine. The most popular talk show host in Detroit, said on air, that if anything approaching that came out of his mouth, he'd have been escorted out of the building before the segment ended. You notice that the diatribe went on for over a quarter hour.

    The OP isn't just about the particular racist host, but the general notion that the left is compassionate and open, and diverse. Is it? Matthews thought he could get away with saying anything. Is there a double standard in America? I don't expect you to have a particularly informed position due to your distance.

    But Matthews is off the air and has been fired and the station has changed formats, which probably means that local management has also been purged. In the light of that, what is the significance of what Matthews thought he could get away with?

    He did remain on air for more than 16 minutes. I couldn't get details of what transpired after the interview. Fill in the details if you have any.

    Matthews is of little significance except that he exists, and represents some black folks. The fact is that Bill Maher and others have made a habit of ugly references to both Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann.

    To be entirely truthful, I'd rather this knuckle dragger got to stay on the air, that we were less politically correct, and that both sides could take off the gloves and say what they really think, and accept the consequences, including the serving of whup *ss that Matthews richly deserves.

    So, with your OP, we are debating what someone called Thaddeus Matthews "thought" [before he got sacked for what he did], and yet - you say - the OP isn't just about the particular racist host - no, Thaddeus Matthews "is of little significance" - it's about extroplating something from what former radio host Thaddeus Matthews "thought" and applying it wholesale to one of the U.S.'s two major political parties and to "the left" in general too? This is what you want to debate?

    So, if you'd have preferred him to have stayed on the air, why have you started a thread to complain that he got to stay on the air and say what he said for 16 minutes?

    I get the impression you have your tongue in cheek with this OP. 'Thaddeus Matthews is significant' ~ 'Thaddeus Matthews is not significant' ~ 'Thaddeus Matthews should not have got away with it' ~ 'Thaddeus Matthews did not away with it' ~ 'Why wasn't Thaddeus Matthews unplugged?' ~ 'I wish Thaddeus Matthews hadn't been unplugged?' ~ 'What Thaddeus Matthews thought applies to "the left"' ... You're having a little self-deprecating laugh, normbenign, surely?

    As a continuing phenomenon, he'd be a more potent example. Now only those who log onto his website can see his stupidity and racism.

    You can't actually see that I promote free speech, even that with which I disagree. I just wish that the lady instead of extending her hand had maced him.

    There are lots of white leftists. Either way they're agreeing with white people.
