Harriet Christian

Harriet was wonderful and articulate on Fox this afternoon.I pity the folks who slandered and made disgusting comments about her. No one knows what she has gone through in life to get her to where she is today on this journey. I imagine she has seen a lot and has every right to feel the way that she does. She is entitled to her opinion and her voice and fuck anyone who would think otherwise. They reveal more about themselves and their character than they do hers. What she said may have been gruff and probably did not come out the way she intended but her point was quite clear. Shame on you folks for belittling her.

Re: Harriet Christian

Her remarks were angry and vile.  She could well be a nice person in real life, but that display was truly horrific.

No, I would happily live my life with a low opinion of her.  Behaviour like that is truly, and hilariously, lacking in maturity.

Re: Harriet Christian

Her rants were disgusting and frankly she sounded like a Republican.

Re: Harriet Christian

That's what happens when you are passionate and you care about something. It's called democracy. Like I said your comments reveal more about you than they do about her.

Re: Harriet Christian

Do you disagree that the comments were vile and disgusting?

Your opinion, but by your analysis, that says plenty about your.

Re: Harriet Christian

What?  My remarks show what, precisely?

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the mind of Reaper0Bot0.

Re: Harriet Christian

Members of the KKK are passionate and care about something.  Radical Islamic fundamentalists are passionate and care about something.

It's what you're passionate about and what you care about that make the difference.

What Harriet Christian is passionate about and what Democrats are passionate about appear to be two different things.

Re: Harriet Christian

I guess I'm shamed, then.  Of course she'd go on Fox afterwards.

Re: Harriet Christian

Hey diary guy

this is still a Democratic Party site..and comments like yours

"I take issue with this comment due to the recent ruling of the Rules committee and Obama's own behavior. I don't think she owes him anything nor do I as a democrat and a Hillary Clinton supporter.

by Iceblinkjm on Mon Jun 02, 2008 at 02:45:42 PM MDT"

"I as a democrat" you are not a  democrat..never were..never will be..
go back to your caves where BS like this is not questioned...

Re: Harriet Christian

I ceased to be a democrat on saturday when the committee invalidated an election and gave someone who was not on the ballot votes. I ceased to be a democrat the day the party decided to  curry the favor of one ethnic group against the other's. I ceased being a democrat the day we made excuses for lazy people who could not meet their civic duty to vote because they chose to believe the lying dishonest media. I ceased to be a democrat the day I heard and saw african americans call an older white women a white vile bitch.

Re: Harriet Christian

I agree with her comments and what she was trying to say. Women are treated in many regards as second class citizens here in this country and around the world. I think she has every right to be angry for what the DNC did on saturday. IJ Ust have an issue with you people on here slandering her when you personally don't know her. I can't imagine what you folks would have said or done if she had been a black women.

Re: Harriet Christian

Setting aside the physical impossibility for her to be several African American women at the same time......

I would have said precisely the same thing.  If she had been a man I'd have said the exact same thing (setting aside the nouns "she" and so forth).

Re: Harriet Christian

"Women are treated in many regards as second class citizens"

Right, because blacks have had it so easy.

Many groups have been treated like shit in this country, from Native Americans at the outset, to Muslims today.  Women don't have a claim on being treated badly.  I happen to agree that the media has been awful at times to Hillary in this race.  And Obama himself has made some stupid/insensitive remarks that he shouldn't have said (sweetie and periodically come to mind).  But none of that excuses this woman's hateful words, just as nothing Rev. Wright has seen and experienced excuses his words.

Re: Harriet Christian

She sounded inexperienced and inarticulate ( I saw her interview live) but it was refreshing to see such candor on tv.  Plus she was basically right.

by handsomegent 2008-06-02 01:11PM | 0 recs
I was astonished...

When they asked for her name, she gave it to them.

It's kinda sad, really.  I don't like to see people exploited... she's been doubly exploited so far.

Re: Harriet Christian

Her histrionics and hyperbole were embarrassing.  That being said, I'm confident she was caught up in her emotions and would not typically behave in such an undignified fashion.  It can happen to any of us.  Thankfully, most of us aren't caught on film and televised for all to see when we err.

Re: Harriet Christian

This is totally off topic, and I'm fine being troll-rated if need be, but Fox news anchors often say the word "err" as if it were literally "urr."  I have no idea if that conveys it properly.  But they don't say "air" which most normal people say.  The dictionary allows for both pronunciations, but I find it odd.

by ProgressiveDL 2008-06-02 01:23PM | 0 recs
She slandered herself. . .

No one here slandered her.  They pointed out what she had no problem screaming in public and on camera.  She did that to herself.  If she leaves the party I honestly think it's better for it.

Sorry

But the 'throwing it all away for a BLACK MAN" comment made it pretty clear to me where her feelings are.

Not all racists run around in sheets.

Unless she apologized profusely, I have no further interest in what she has to say.

Re: Sorry

Her words were hateful, no doubt about that.  But even racists occasionally make good points.  You know, even a blind squirrel finds a nut, and so on.  If she actually had some good points to say, I would probably listen.  But she doesn't PLUS she's a racist.  That's where she loses me.

Re: Harriet Christian
There was a day when it was "OK" for someone like Harriet Christian to speak her mind about the Democratic Party. In fact, that used to be one of the great things about the Party. That's all changed, at least in the minds of many in the blogosphere.

There was also a day

when George Wallace was considered a good Democrat.

Re: There was also a day

I was about to say the same thing.

There was a day when open racists were welcomed into the Democratic Party.  Fortunately for us, those days are now over.

by mistersite 2008-06-02 01:29PM | 0 recs
It is fine still.

She got to speak her mind about the party.  Now we of the party get to speak our mind about her.  That's how free speech works--everyone gets to speak their minds free from the threat of jailing or execution.  It really is a beautiful thing.

Re: Harriet Christian

Christian's display on Saturday was at the very least embarassing, and probably much worse (the "black man" comment).  I suspect that the people most unhappy about her ranting were the Clinton campaign team, since it made it appear that Hillary's supporters were unhinged.  If I were Hillary, I would not have been happy about that video playing over and over on YouTube over the weekend.

Re: Harriet Christian
Embarrassing to whom? I may not agree with her, but I admire and respect the courage it took to say it.
by zenful6219 2008-06-02 01:21PM | 0 recs
It took absolutely no courage

to unleash that racist rant.  Don't mistake a lack of propriety and good sense for courage.

Harriet Christian

I don't know what she said on Fox b/c I have standards, but from what I read of a quote she made, it's only ammunition for Republicans.  All they have to do is turn around and say look at what the other Democrats are saying about their own nominee in public....not good at all.

Re: Harriet Christian

when was she on? will she be on again? I'm just REALLY curious to see her on TV.

that being said, she is a potential Democratic voter. We, and Barack cannot take her departure, or possible one for granted. If his color really is that big a problem, he has to address it. He obviously can't change it, but he needs to do something to stop the bleeding of voters like this to McCain.
