Socially Acceptable Discrimination

  Last week, St. Louis broadcast icon Larry Connors filed a lawsuit with the Missouri Human Rights Commission accusing CBS affiliate KMOV-TV of age and race discrimination. The lawsuit claims that management gave younger reporters the more choice assignments. It also states that Connors former co-anchor was paid more because she was an African-American female.
  We are, right now, at the tip of the iceberg of a major scandal involving the IRS, and it's targeting of Conservative and religious groups for extra scrutiny when they filed for tax-exempt status.
  Are Americans headed down a chilling path? A path that actually condones discrimination of certain groups of people and speech?
  As far as groups of people that have been deemed acceptable for discriminatory action, white males and Christians seem to be at the top of the list. God(dess) help you if you are both. Want some back-up for that? Try hunting down discrimination statistics for white males. There aren't any. Recently, a casting call for a male host for a Canadian children's show went out. Just one hitch, no white men need apply.
  Christians are expected to keep their beliefs to themselves. Catholic hospitals are in the fight of their lives to keep from being forced to provide birth control, or perform any other service that may go against their beliefs that falls under the crushing umbrella of Obama care. And whatever you do, don't say, "Merry Christmas"!
  Back in 2003, Hillary Clinton, in front of a crowd, screeched about how dissent was patriotic, and we had a right to disagree with any administration! Really? Ask any one of roughly 500 Tea Party groups just how patriotic they were feeling when the IRS demanded to know the contents of their prayers.
  Noam Chomsky, Godfather of Uber-Lefties, once said, "If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all." Can Liberals really say they live by that creed today, when their answer to those with whom they disagree, is to shut them up? If minority Americans are comfortable with racism, yes that what it is, towards white males because somehow in their mind they feel like "they have it coming", then they have learned nothing from great courageous Americans like Frederick Douglass, Dr. W.E.B Du Bois, and Dr. Martin Luther King. Who decides what groups and what speech is acceptable, and which ones don't really deserve the equality that is guaranteed all Americans?
  Discrimination is discrimination. There is no "reverse" about it. If you don't condemn it when it happens to someone else, who will condemn it when it happens to you?
