Controversy..

controversy 1

According to Webster: “con·tro·ver·sy,” A dispute, especially a public one, between sides holding opposing views.

It would seem that my defense of Paula Deen along with other information and opinions published on my website over this last week have offended the delicate sensibilities of a few liberal individuals. So to you I say; …

 get over it 1a

..unless of course, you have written an equally (vile) protest to Merriam-Webster and every other publisher of a dictionary in the United States.

The N-word, (whether or not acceptable to everyone) is as much a part of American and World culture as; “redneck,” “whitey, “honky,” “mick,” “spick,” “kike,” or “polock.”

These (words) are all Offensive Slang. (Published in our U.S. “English” Dictionaries; “Used as disparaging terms.”

For anyone who might be interested, in my copy of Merriam-Webster, and/or, the Merriam-Webster dictionary available online, you will find the N-word between…

..”nig·gard·ly,” (n¹g“…rd-l¶) adj. 1. Grudging and petty in giving or spending. See Synonyms at  stingy. 2. Meanly small; scanty or meager: left the waiter a niggardly tip. –nig“gard·li·ness n. –nig“gard·ly adv.

And; …

..”nig·gle,” (n¹g“…l) intr.v. nig·gled, nig·gling, nig·gles. 1. To be preoccupied with trifles or petty details. 2. To find fault constantly and trivially; carp. See Synonyms at  quibble. [Perhaps of Scandinavian origin.] –nig“gler n.

According to Webster: nig·ger (n¹g“…r) n. Offensive Slang. 1.a. Used as a disparaging term for a Black person: “You can only be destroyed by believing that you really are what the white world calls a nigger” (James Baldwin). b. Used as a disparaging term for a member of any dark-skinned people.

(Sidebar).

“Please pay special attention to Merriam-Webster’s second definition, thank you.”

2. Used as a disparaging term for a member of any socially, economically, or politically deprived group of people: …

gun owner 1a

.. “Gun owners are the new niggers . . . of society” (John Aquilino). [Alteration of dialectal neger, black person, from French nègre, from Spanish negro. See NEGRO.]

faceless man 2a

(No image found for John Aquilino)

Question: (personal interest) How many dictionary haters do we have in America?

Of course in America, (being fair and balanced) controversy runs a lot wider and deeper than race.

The example as posed by the faceless John Aquilino; “Gun owners are the new niggers . . . of society.”

Question: “Is John Aquilino allowed to voice his opinion in America? 

abs so freaking lewdly 1a

Because America was not founded on the “concept” of free speech, …

According to Webster: “con·cept,” A general idea derived or inferred from specific instances or occurrences.

..America was founded on the rule of law, guaranteeing free speech.

According to Webster: “guar·an·tee,” (in context) To make certain.

Accordingly, one more time…

The first amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, reads; 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.”

Admission of guilt; “I am a gun owner,” therefore, to any and all who subscribe to (the faceless) John Aquilino’s published opinion, (I am a nigger).”

Question: Am I offended by being a nigger in John Aquilino’s opinion?

abs so freaking lewdly NOT.1 jpg

Nor am I personally offended by the words redneck, honky, or Whitey.

According to Webster: “whit·ey,” also “Whit·ey, Offensive Slang. Used as a disparaging term for a white person or white people.

I mean come on, (really) ..how (absolutely) ..silly is it to be offended by words?

sticks and stones 3a

Of course, if I were offended by words, they would be words more in the venue of (misleading, and/or, ..lies,) ..instead of words in the venue of (disparaging).

According to Webster: lie,” A false statement deliberately presented as being true; a falsehood.

According to Webster: “dis·par·ag·ing,” To reduce in esteem or rank; to degrade.

Question: If your choice was between being degraded, ..or being lied to, ..which would “you” prefer?

Personally, I would much prefer the president of the United States to refer to me as a honky, a redneck, or Whitey. Than to have him tell me and the entire population of this nation that his “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act”, and/or, Obamacare would not raise anyone’s insurance premiums, ..and that it would allow everyone to keep their own Doctor and keep their own health insurance.

Charismatic liars are a bunch of fun in a pub, albeit, ..at least (in my humble opinion)..

..not so much behind the desk in the Oval Office.

..yes indeed, controversy is as much of a tradition in American politics as shaking hands and kissing babies, I mean come on, who in America can’t find a reason to oppose something or everything?

Biden - I shoot through doors 1a

With a little effort, who couldn’t find fault with some of this random American citizens blather?

But then, to abstain from truly being offensive, ..I’ll put that can a worms on a shelf for another day.

Truth forges understanding, I’ll be back tomorrow.
