Playing the victim

No! Bad Huffpo!

No, no no! You do NOT make Laura Ingraham out to be the victim here. Yes, you probably have a point. Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and others male FOX cretins have gotten away with saying equally or more disgusting things on the air, but for Gods sake, can we not help this awful awful woman cast herself as the aggrieved party? Right-wingers generally do not need any help playing the victim.

Like for instance:

Sibling of Parkland victim maintains he was shut out of 'March for Our Lives' rally

Brother of Parkland Shooting Victim: March for Our Lives Excluded Me Because My Speech Didn’t Fit Agenda

Yeah. That's how it works. Rallies are not debates. If you want to go out and advocate for arming teachers, start your own rally. Believe me, you'll have no trouble getting the NRA to sponsor it or FOX to promote it. But complaining that you weren't allowed to give a "more guns everywhere, please" speech at a gun-control rally is like me complaining that they wouldn't let me give my pro-Obamacare presentation at a Tea Party.

ingraham ain't no victim, she is a cunt who needs to be fired.

and a pro-gun agenda ain't gonna cut it with the hurting students.

What the hell is wrong with Huffington Post?

To Debra: That's a very good question. I'm not sure, but HuffPost may have been bit by the "Success" bug which is hard to contain and once you've caught it you fight as hard as you can to maintain it.
