Death Camp of Tolerance

That’s right everyone gets a gold star and you can’t think anything bad about anyone.

From South Park.

Welcome to tolerance camp. You are here because you would not accept people?s differences. Because you refuse to accept the life choices of your fellow man. Well those days are now over. Here you vill verk, every hour of every day, until you submit to being tolerant of everybody. Here, intolerance? will not be tolerated.

From CNN.

Isaiah Washington, who does the healing as a doctor on ?Grey?s Anatomy,? is the patient now.

He?s in therapy for his use of an anti-gay slur against a castmate.

?With the support of my family and friends, I have begun counseling. I regard this as a necessary step toward understanding why I did what I did and making sure it never happens again,? Washington said in a statement Wednesday. ?I appreciate the fact that I have been given this opportunity and I remain committed to transforming my negative actions into positive results, personally and professionally.?

Doesn?t this sound like the type of confession that pilots in the Hanoi Hilton would sign? ?I understand that I have committed grave injustices against the peace-loving people of Vietnam, and appreciate the opportunity to cleanse myself of my past misdeeds. Long live the Revolution and the glory of Ho Chi Minh!?

Seriously, folks, you can?t make this shit up.

  1. Here’s what I like: people who take a valid point and extend it to the point of absurdity. Your comparison is kind of b.s.: Isaiah Washington, aparrently either a moron or total hothead, issues a fake, insulting apology he and his agent wrote in the hopes that he can continue to make gobs of money. That’s not quite like being a prisoner of war being forced to issue a false declaration of loyalty, you know, or be torchered and killed.

    SO: Yes, sending people to a Camp of Tolerance for being horrified at having a teacher shove a gerbil up his assistant’s ass in class is absurd.
    Not wanting to hire an actor who harasses his colleagues on the set, pretty standard stuff….Or are you saying that, maybe, the studio directors should go to tolerance camp to learn how to tolerate people who behave poorly at work?
