I'm not apologizing for shit

3 reasons

1) I wasn't the guy who said it.
2) In the context of our corrupt political environment, I have no problem with the term.
3) I support Bernie, but he doesn't set my standards.

1. It's sad that some people go straight to 'whore' when a woman is involved.

The 'Not Hillary' Party is Berning out.

35. I think tweety is one and krugman. does that make me sexist too?

That term was coin here for over a decade. I suppose when you don't have anything you can still have 'outrage' over a word that was fine until yesterday.

37. Huh, I'd have thought the top result from google,

or the wikipedia entry, would be the guide as to meaning.

http://www.dictionary.com/browse/sugar-daddy

a wealthy, middle-aged man who spends freely on a young woman in return for her companionship or intimacy.


Zarif arrived in Moscow to expand cooperation with Russia and pay homage to his sugar daddy for making all of this possible.
How Iran, Putin and Assad Outwitted America


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar_daddy

Going to urban dictionary is going to give a certain kind of result, if the query offers any kind of naughty potential. Oh well, his house, his rules.

17. Hillary supporters don't care.

 

It's all bullshit with them-- just deceitful attacks separated by attempts to play the victim. It's just a game of scoring points for them.

31. that's really it, right there

 

why apologize? No one is REALLY offended, it's just a ridiculous, fraudulent game, designed to depress Bernie's support.

We're supposed to apologize to frauds?

18. It has a definition, and whoever fits it deserves it.

If she's so proud of currying favor with corporations and being paid on a hush-money scale for it, then she should wear the term for it proudly too.

It isn't as if by rejecting that plain-spoken clear term, people suddenly forget what she is and does. It doesn't make the slightest bit of difference. This pseudo-fuss is only a way to deflect the issue of her conduct away from her and onto those who are objecting to it.

That really doesn't fly, most people are sharp enough to see that for what it is: yet another dishonest gaslighting maneuver.
