1. And those who write those essays write different things throughout the years

in many cases expressing an evolution in views and even rejecting their own previous words.

5. Who is this supposed to hit?

The people talking about Joy Reid? Or the people who thought those early writings (which to my understanding were blown out of proportion) should have disqualified a primary candidate?

6. essays blown out of proportion?

 

I see where you stand on past words. And who's words (real vs. doctored) gets to be used a bludgeon.

8. Yeah. Were they not?

To be clear. I don't think either matter...especially after so many years. But if you're going to try to hit one set of people with the hypocrisy hammer, it swings both ways in this case.

11. so you don't believe Joy that the accounts were hacked?

 

I do believe Joy. calling in FBI would a duh move otherwise.

There is no question who wrote the essays, there is question who made the entries.

Yet, you try and put them on equal footing, to be judged equally.

13. Correct me if I'm wrong...

...but hasn't she already admitted and apologized for writing some unfavorable things about LGBT folks in the past? Seems like she's moved on from that stuff in her life so great! I don't believe the hacking claims but I also think it doesn't matter. I'm more concerned about where someone is now. Not 10+ or 40+ years ago.

15. Like I said...

...I'm not interested in what anyone said 10 or 40 years ago. More than enough time has passed for anyone to change their views. Besides, the topic here isn't an apology, but whether or not she said what it seems she said. If you think some hacking occurred fine. In light of other things she's said I don't. But it also doesn't matter, because those aren't her views today.

You need to put away your Bernie Rage and relax a bit.
