43. Where's the outrage?
Isn't it interesting that, while some here disagree with deaniac and a handful have even personally attacked him, he hasn't attracted a fraction of the anger, accusations and flat-out hate that have been hurled at Melissa Harris-Perry - even though his post was much harsher than hers was.

Hmmmm. I wonder why the difference in reaction?

     - True, it was not an OP, you posted the same article in another thread which had many replies ...  slipslidingaway   Sep-28-11 08:40 PM   #12

        - I guess Sirota couldn't get away with calling MHP "uppity" so "arrogant" sufficed as code.  ClarkUSA   Sep-28-11 09:16 PM   #18 
           - Code for racist, ClarkUSA? Is that your contention? Sirota is a racist?  chill_wind   Sep-28-11 10:51 PM   #35
