How can you even allude that getting into a heated debate in a bar (with what seem to be colleagues) which went a little too far (for some tastes) is in any way in the same league as a hate crime, ie a lynching or dragging someone to death tied to a truck? He didn't hit the woman cause she was a woman, so you're correct insofar as he's not sexist. In fact, I think the fact that he took a swing shows he believe in equality of the sexes, so perhaps he should be commended for that. But still, "hate crime"?

Yes, address the sarcasm/nonsense, ignore the question.

Well, when one has little to no understanding of the law (as one has amply and repeatedly demonstrated in the past) then one can make such allusions.

it also helps when one obviously has the day off from work and is trolling for reactions.

I dunno kids, call me old school.

Any man that raises a hand to a woman is a sexist bastard, and for one to obfuscate the issue is quite troubling.

So if one were to give you the sexist angle, would you still think it deserves to be compared to a hate crime?

Yes, perhaps 2 hate crimes even.

Of course a whole psychological work up would be needed by a detached 3rd party to determine if he smacked her as "a colleague" as you readily volunteered or if he saw he as a "white devil".

You would be in favor of that, now correct?

Thought so.

thank you..

Oh, is that the agenda we're going with? You're posting 2861 who even after seeing it in black and white said Rush isn't sexist or racist, so between you and 2861 we're suppose to believe you are experts on sexism now? Sorry if I find that laugable.

I took the huge leap of referring to her as a "colleague" because they worked together. And they were sitting in a bar talking. But you're right, I'm sure she's a white devil. We all are!

You're welcome.

Speaking of racism, this is hilarious! I love the Onion.

True. Although the episode with Johnny Drama playing in the golf tournament with Tom Brady was classic.


Do you think Ari Gold is racist?
