Just say "I want to stand up against hate campaigns" and be done with it. Of course you will be targeted by corporate amerika. It reminds me of Germany circa 1939.
This goof ball still doesn't get it. He still thinks that what Chick-fil-A's CEO did was hate. He LOVES America and what she has always stood for, traditional family values, purity in life and lifestyle. The only one that hates is this lib tool who thinks that disagreeing with his anti-American agenda is hate.
And now he wants us all to take our energies and hold hands and sing Kumbaya, or We Are the World, or I'd Like to Give the World a Song, or Imagine. As long as there is a liberal wing in America that wants to teach little boys and girls in grade school that sodomy and aberrant behavior is OK, that Tommy has 2 Daddy's is normal, and that AIDS is not a homosexual created disease, it 'aint gonna happen. The one thing that they despise is the truth and to them that is hate. No, it's just the truth.
He's not sorry he did it, he's sorry there were consequences. Do you think he'd be issuing an apology had there not been fall-out or loss of a job? NOPE! I would be willing to bet he is doing this in hopes of getting his job back but his motive certainly isn't to repent. He's a narcissistic leftist idiot like the rest of them.
I was happy when I heard he got the boot from his company. You say... you pay. Better to keep quite, than speak and prove yourself a fool.
Too late butthead, you lose! You said what you said to an honest and hard working young woman and you can see the results....barely anyone agrees with you. Take your apology and put it where the sun don't shine. LISTEN TO WHAT WAS SAID BY MR. CATHY, "THE COMPANY FAVORS TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE," NOTHING WAS SAID AGAINST GAYS OR LESBIANS.
The "degree of reaction" to his video took him "by surprise" because most left liberals it seems, live in the left dominated government, media, academia and celebrity world 24 7 and rarely ever hear, meet or see another opinion but their own and their own laughably conformist phony group.
They almost NEVER come into contact with authentic conservatives one on one, if at all. Mebbe he would know a damn thing if he listened to Bill Whittle, Mark Steyn, the Founding Fathers, pjtv com, Michelle Malkin, Mark Levin, Thomas Sowell, P.J O'Rourke, Jonah Goldberg, Victor Davis Hanson, iowahawk typepad com, zombietime com, thepeoplescube com, hfontova com, Michael Savage, Jamie Glazov, Tim Blair and John Stossel etc, etc, etc.
No, really. Colonel Neville.
Er, the groups that Chick a fil support are not "anti gay groups", but anti any radical leftist mobs who have an agenda of compulsory conformity to a collectivist homosexual ideology that aims to push all sexual variations onto all school children from prep on, plus polyamourous and other multi groupings et al.
The groups Chick a fil support are actually pro marriage, family and Constitutional freedom of speech. The left mob concerned despise all these things that is why they're uninterested in the many conservative gay folks such as gaypatriot net & gayconservative org etc, who DO NOT support the absurd oxymoron and special group rights of "gay marriage".
ALL group rights over individual rights IS tyranny. Gay folks already have equal marriage rights: they're the SAME ONES as everyone else has. No more, no less.
Interesting how these leftists NEVER march on the local mosque and demand "gay marriage" there. Nope, THAT would be dangerous and superfluous to their true goal of the destruction of the family, church and the Western Canon by stealth and overt means.
No, really. Colonel Neville.
Ah, the extremely rare to non-existent if laughably meager left liberal apology. Usually when all their irrational ideas end in disaster if you just wait long enough, they either demand more of the same to er, 'make it work' or move on to the next front group fraud cum cause. No, really. Colonel Neville.
I'm shocked by all of yall's respnse to this. Sure, this guy was a huge jerk for what he did, but he is obviously really sorry for being rude to this girl. This appology is to her, not you, and not to conservatives. He doesn't owe "us" an appology, he owed her one and he gave it. I disagree with everything this guy stands for, but bashing him for appogizing makes yall as much of a jerk as he is. Come on "Christians"; lighten the heck up.
His "apology" is as sincere as Bill Clinton's waggin' his finger at the camera and saying, I never had sex with that woman. Not one time." and then redefining what sex was so he could say he was really telling the truth. The board for conduct of Attorney's didn't believe his "testimony" because they disbarred him. This has nothing to do with "Christians." It's all about some liberal tool finally discovering that the majority of Americans find his belief system anti-American. Now he has to live with it. Along with his unemployment checks.
So if Obama just apologizing for suspending requirements for entering this country, it'll be be okay?
This man has damned himself, a wife who trusted his to use good judgement and provide a decent model for his children, 2 children and 2 adopted, innocent children.
If he wants to apologize, he should start by apologizing to them. As for the rest of us, seeing and knowing the truth about this man is worth millions.
Following your "perfection," please do post again.
Appologies never make an unkind act okay. An appology is just a way to show remorse for what you've done, and you know that, so why the stupid question about b.o. I don't know anything about this dude's wife or kids. I'm surprised. I thought he was a homo. He looks and talks like one. For the record, I'm not only anti gay marriage, I'm anti gay. I actually hate them. Sue me. Having said that, Anytime somebody wants to sincerely appologize for something, I think that's great. Get off your high horse. As for your perfection comment, I know you're being a smart ass, but it actually went over my head as to what the heck you're talking about.
Maybe I read you wrong here partner, but it sounded like you might have been criticizing Christians for what they did or failed to do.
There's a lot of Christians out there who'll just take it, and give up space for the guy, being good Christians. Maybe I'm little farther to the right of even the evangelicals but for my money there's a limit to tolerance. There's no need to offer this jerk any sympathy.
Regarding the perfecting, the reference is probably a little obscure. When I look at how the lib and commies attack conservative society, they take Christian values and push them to the extreme. When you listen to them, each one is attempting to sound like he's more perfect that the last.
When you keep up this "I'm more perfect than you" type of competition, you wind up with Jim Jones and the Black panthers, One'll back homosexuality, the next'll back gay marriage and the third'll try to prove he's even more tolerant by backing child molesters. Liberals are as misledd in trying to be more perfect and more moral than some Christians trying to be more Godly than their neighbor.
Thanks for taking the time to measure your response. You sound pretty reasonable to me. May I oughta apologize.
Now let's take these commies and conformists off the continent forever.
Sorry dude but the damage was done by your actions. Be a man and take it and stop whimpering. And BTW, have fun finding a job in the nobama economy. From CFO to a loser in mere hours. Next time think before you act.
Sorry, Mr. Baldwin, but this idiot's getting exactly what he deserves IMHO... In fact, if this was a Conservative who acted as foolishly as this moron, the Left wouldn't stop harping on it until he was divorced (assuming the douche is married), penniless, and living out of a cardboard box begging for bread heels...
This guy is a smuck! He has NOT apologized. He is defending, and pontificating, justifying, politicizing, judging, moralizing, and he is an egotistical bastard. He screwed up and now he is suffering the consequences of his actions. I am not impressed. Just because Baldwin up there has forgiven him, does not mean I am ready to ignore his rather fanatical behavior. He is a fake, a jerk, a scumbag. He thought about what he was doing, TWICE. Before he got there, and then because of the # of supporters, he "adjusted" his behavior. He is an anarchist who is hiding behind the masters degree, and once CFO position. Tough, guy. No excuse for stupidity....This is a NONE apology!
The only way I would consider forgiving this depraved idiot is if he would surrender himself to FreedomWorks for a year to be studied by conservative psychiatrists, studied, not treated, so that we could better understand what kind of evil and depravity has been fed into the minds of these elitist,narcissistic, control freaks and liberals.
I love how his words show how much he thinks of Rachel, saying things like "our drive-thru meeting", "I came over to see how you were doing", "you should be really proud of how you handled yourself" and "I totally deserve the silent treatment"...
...I'm by no means an expert but all this sounds like something an elitist says in an apology to someone they consider to be of limited intellectual capacity...Sorta like in a TV drama where the competitive "bad guy" humiliates the young hero in some way, but is caught in the act and is forced to apologize in front of everybody; of course he barely means it, and uses half of his apology to insult and talk down to the real hero.
In sum, what I draw from the words he uses, the way he phrases his sentences, and even his tone of voice is that this is a typical liberal elitist thug who thinks anyone who opposes gay peoples' right to get a piece of paper signed by a guy that says something about them, is somehow unintelligent, and therefore in need of guidance and encouragement from the "enlightened".
This guy is a creep and I'm sorry I know he exists.
Enough fun with Adam M. Smith. He has bigger issues than he even understands at this point in his life. There's more going on with him than meets the eye.
So he needs to be left alone and, honestly, we need to hope for the sake of him and his family that he's able to find a path that leads to peace and more self-awareness. And, until that day comes, it'd help if he'd stop posting things on the youtube.
I guess that he does not realize that communication is 90% non verbal. His tone of voice and especially his facial expressions give him away. Try watching just a bit with the volume turned down.
Beautiful lesson in life, Many things are much better not said. As a Jesus fanatic, now I am once again reminded of why the Lord many times remained silent when falsely accused or confronted and judged.
Thank much for the grace displayed from Rachels' life. Remain calm, collective and understanding.
On the other hand , may the Lord's grace touches the women abuser, that he may come to a Godly sorrow moment ! silent is a harmless effective weapon !
can this moron go away and leave people alone, what woman in her right mind would ever want to marry or be with this women abuser . shut thy b.....hole and live her and every body else alone. Get a life !
He's not sorry he treated her that way, he's sorry he lost his job. Had there been no consequences for his actions, we'd have never heard an apology. End of story.
Haven't we had enough of leftist anti-conservative nut jobs screwing up and the apologizing for their lack of civility after the fact. If he were stealing your food because he failed to secure his own would you have any sympathy for him. They point their guns, shoot of their mouths and WE have to suddenly have sympathy for their consequences. Since they've poisoned the well and burned all the bridges of civility, I don't think so. I won't turn the other cheek to the evil as it would be sinful for me to just accept it.
The anti-CFA crowd has been trying to change the debate. I'm not buying it.
They were originally upset over Dan Cathy's remarks. When they realized protesting his remarks fails because
a) Dan Cathy's quote took no stand against any group; he stood up for one man/one woman marriage. The pro-homosexual supporters immediately translated it as an attack on homosexuals. And, quite frankly, Dan Cathy's position would also disqualify polygamist and incestuous marriage, but I didn't hear any of them stand up for those marital configurations. Who is going to stand up for father/mother/brother/sister love?! Let the 4 of them marry each other; love trumps all, apparently morals too. Adam, what's your position?
b) Dan's remarks are protected by the 1st amendment. When the pro-homosexual supporters realized they were treading in dangerous waters with morons like Rahm Emanuel, et al threatening license to do business in their cities, they backed off on this on.
When all this failed, then the argument became an issue of CFA's funding of organizations they disagree with. Yet, they had no problem with CFA funding these organizations prior to Dan's comments. Where were you crusader-for-homosexuality Adam Smith? He just now realizes CFA is a Christian business? And if Adam's problem was funding, what the heck is Rachel or any branch of CFA going to do to change that? Nothing. Your beef (eat more chiken.) is with corporate, and good luck with that.
Adam Smith, too bad your prank exploded in your face. This sums up what I think of you.
Why is it, when a Conservative or Christian doesn't agree with a Liberal or atheist they are Closed Minded and belong to a HATE GROUP???
and, when a Liberal doesn't agree with a Conservative, they are said to be Open Minded and are expressing their 1st amendment rights???
Seems Selective not Objective.
I understand the negative sentiments here. And his apology was not great. But it was there. If we on the Right are not willing to forgive not only his actions, but his character, how will the misguided individuals on the Left ever feel like they are welcome to reconsider their position and join us?
That will never happen Pete. And, if there is a hint of "reconsideration" from the left -it's fake and pure attempts at manipulating conservatives. How can you even think that the "left" can be trusted? THEY CAN'T. That's what is so frustrating about conservatives, they want to believe they can "change" the liberal way of thinking - that liberals will finally understand the rationale of conservatives - THEY WON'T. Please, Pete dear, don't be naive. Don't you see the way liberals "fight" - down and dirty and lawless. Conservatives will never come out ahead if they don't get just as down and just as dirty and fight back with everything they've got. With people like Obama and Axelrod and the rest, taking the high road will not win the day, or the presidency.
Your condescending tone was unnecessary, actionsspeak, I am not an ignorant person. Neither am I naive.
I am referring to an individual, not a political group or party. Snide, arrogant, proud, yes. But so are many of us. Look in the mirror.
Conservatives in America are developing a "take no prisoners" attitude toward the Left. While that may be a required stance when dealing with politics and politicians, remember that we are dealing with lots of real people, too. Some of them, indeed, are hopeless. However some are uneducated, but teachable. Some are merely misguided. And finally, some are undecided.
Within that eclectic mix are people who would be willing to reconsider their political position if they were exposed to the facts. But if that exposure consistently includes a punch in the jaw, we're losing valuable voters.
The ultimate goal of Conservatives should be to completely eliminate the Left, or to reduce it to a state where the Democratic Party cannot survive. There are only two ways to do that. Kill them or convert them. And since we are not yet embracing Sharia, thank God, I view conversion as the only way.
Does that make me naive? Or realistic?
Watch the video with the volume turned off. Watch for the way he looks up in the air unsure what to say next, how he smirks and has tiny smiles. Wathc his hands. He is lecturing us and Rachel. There is no apology here.
Pete: "how will the misguided individuals on the Left ever feel like they are welcome to reconsider their position and join us?"
I admire your Christian attitude but "reconsidering your position" is something the muslims are doing to the Christians in Nigeria and Egypt right now. I don't consider those "re-considerations" valid.
Here's my guess--They will "reconsider" when they find out that they are going to have to suffer the consequences of their actions and not one minute before.
These liberals have attempted to overthrow our government. Their actions have served to destroy our institutions, like marriage and education, eliminate our ability and will to defend our borders and collapse our economy and destroy our markets.They refer to patriots as racists, bigot and "you-name-it"-phobes.
That's treason. There's no statute of limitation on treason.
When the patriotic Americans convinced the British to leave this continent with their god-King and their state-sponsored religion, they took the "loyalists" and the slaves they had bribed into their militia's with them. The traitor-loyalists were re-patriated to England and other colonies. The blacks were re-sold.
Them that stayed, paid.
It isn't about forgiveness. We can forgive easily, but forget? Not so much. People in this country, conservatives especially, have learned they often end up with a broken jaw for turning the other cheek.
Listen to his video again. In the beginning with the apology he still labeled those who disagreed with him as hate groups, but in the second half of the video after apologizing is still labeling opposition as hate groups. He has learned nothing. He made a baby step when a giant step is needed.
I see it is still all about him. He has learned nothing. Perhaps he should start with not labeling everyone with whom he disagrees a hate group.
Just leave this guy alone. He has some issues to deal with. Why else would someone go on a rant, video tape it, and then screw his life up temporarily?
He says, "If I was in the closet, I would be very proud to be"? This fool is making his situation worse.
