They have the right to express any view they feel. The fans have the right to react in any way they chose. Thay Clay for instance. If he expresses his views, it is likely to make his homo fans happy and they may by more of his products. On the other hand the dixie chicks IMO have more of a country fan base. The country fan base is pro America (again, IMO) and chose to stop buying their products. A dumb move for the chicks. Sure, down the road the homo holliwood croud award them a bunch of awards solely for stating anti American views, and not for musical accomplishments (once again, IMO). It still cost them millions of dollars. Aparently they were willing to pay. Where are they now? Theyput out a couple songs and the country radio tried to forgive them and play their songs. Far as I can see this has not taken hold. *

These are the views of Speed and in no fuging way express the views of The Panthers Huddle message board.

Reggie White was not a bigot. He was a nice man. A very nice man.

he was a bigot and a stain on the history of the nfl.

so because they said they didn't like Bush, they were anti American views.

but you are free to criticize Obama without being anti American?

how does that work exactly?

a nice thing about america is that no matter who you are, where you come from, or what you think, you're allowed to tell every person you meet your opinions. you don't have to be a 'qualified' political expert to have an opinion on something, we sure aren't here in the tinderbox.

i'll never get why people begrudge other folks doing that just because they're famous.

being famous doesn't mean you're not allowed to share your opinion. if you've got a platform and something you care about, shout it as loud as you can.

i notice you listed all liberals. if your real problem is their views, man up and say that. don't pretend you disagree with all famous people sharing opinions.

I mentioned all liberals because, as my post stated, over the past several years, we've had a Republican in the White House, and these were the idiots to use their fame as a soap box to blast him.

Now that a Democrat is in office, let's see how many conservatives use that chance to voice their opinions.

I don't look at party when it comes to people. When I cast my vote, I vote for the person, not what side of the fence they choose.

We've had celebs in various forms of office before, and I think that will continue. We've had actors and pro wrestlers (also actors, but that's another thread) who have been elected to head states. We've even had a movie cowboy as President.

.....................

I'm good at painting my face and acting stupid at football games. That talent, in no way, shape, or form, does not extend to matters of public office or political opinion.

david duke may be a "nice man," too, that doesn't make him less of a bigot. reggie white destroyed lives and preached hatred and was the same class of person.

If I was going into battle I'd take Reggie White over you any day. No offense. He was a great guy. So his opinions weren't up to the PC code. fug the PC code.

David Duke was a Klan wizard, or whatever you call them. Don't even make that comparison. I met Reggie White. He was a class act.

This gets to the root of the problem in this thread. Reggie White is an athlete. They asked him to speak in front of a crowd of people. Why?

Why are we shunning real preachers and real heroes in our community and paying so much attention to athletes and celebrities. If I want to know about the homeless, I'm going to ask Tattoorhino, not Steve Smith.

You would be very disappointed if you spent five minutes in an NFL locker room, Rodeo. Homophobia runs rampant, for one. Black guys make fun of white guys, and vice versa. Guys make fun of other guys over women. But you know what? It makes most of them closer. It's not like the ninnies on this board who get some kind of self worth out of calling other people bigots and racists. People they've never met.

Reggie White was a villain in the homosexual community. He took a hard line fire and brimstone fundamentalist christian approach to them very vocally.
