Response to CitizenLeft (Reply #20)

25. We Liberals also need to be careful

To carry on that point about communication ties, I recall Jindal's speech in 2009 to Pres. Obama's address to Congress.

It was terrible and frankly substandard. However, the reaction from a few Liberals went over the top - mocking talk about outsourcing and call centres and mocking Indian accents.

Whether a Conservative does it or a Liberal, that kind of behaviour must be condemned.

Criticize a person's ideas and ideologies but it is unacceptable to mock his religion or his racial background.

We are better than that.
