I I watched the recordings carefully. Not one thing that I saw him say was improper. Some folks might not have liked some of the things he said, but where is it written that things people say have to please me (or anyone else) in order to be proper? It is not his fault that English is no longer taught at a level sufficient for comprehension, and that there are many more people today who feel when they should be thinking. He said what he meant, and he meant what he said. Somebody didn't like it. I defy those somebodies to exceed his accomplishments - they cannot, and until someone complains who can, they are showing envy and jealousy and not much more.

Words Mean Things. I can call an automobile a chudzuh if I want to, but it won't mean much to you unless, of course, you are a speaker of a particular Mandarin dialect. Clip is not the same as magazine. Male is not the same as female, no matter how many times you say it. Train is not airplane, although not move people - but trains do not fly. I could say more, but you either get the point or you don't - and educating the ineducable is not part of my job description.

As a matter of fact, yes - they are to be handled with kid gloves lest they declare jihad or some such utter rubbish.

You don't 'know' many, I'd wager - your frame of reference is probably skewed.
Who among us is not flawed? He was effective when it was needed - all else is sour grapes.
You spelled BUTT wrong....
When I encounter a form that asks my race, I find a way to write in 'HUMAN'. Blood interchanges if you follow the rules, likewise body parts - how different can we be under what folks choose to see? These appearance-based 'differences' are all invented nonsense, invented so someone somewhere can feel superior to someone that he doesn't look like. Balderdash at its best. I am naturally suspicious of anyone that hyphenates AMERICAN and places something before it - I am first and foremost an AMERICAN. My ancestry might well be something else, as we all had to get here somehow, and over time I have spoken a couple of languages other than English, because I lived in places where they were more common, but here it's English, folks.
