  1. He should’ve said, “What’s that have to do with me?”
    One does not inherit guilt* any more than one inherits virtue**.

    Evidently, these people have no real understanding of first principles, so they respond with cheap spin control. It’s all they know.

    To burden following generations with the guilt of history is a vile assault on individual responsibility and liberty. There is no boundary to it, and it can be exploited for unsavory purposes (see: reparations).
    It’s almost as bad as burdening following generations with the debts run-up by their spendthrift and profligate ancestors (see: national debt).
    ________
    * Not the same as inheriting suffering or advantage due to parental wickedness.
    (I’ll skip the Biblical stuff.)
    ** Not the same as inheriting genetic talent or wealth or freedom resulting from others’ valor.

  2. To burden following generations with the guilt of history is a vile assault on individual responsibility and liberty.

    Which is why it is such a prized activity among Proggies?

  3. Ben Affleck testifies during the Senate …on “Diplomacy, Development, and National Security”
    Is shooting a movie overseas and regularly flaunting one’s scrotum the desired expertise to testify before Congress?

    No, of course not. It’s as an asshole and a hypocritical liar that Affleck is qualified to talk to Congress, who are mostly assholes and hypocritical liars.

    BTW Bennie boy, either shave that stubble, grow a beard or actually walk up the Nile to the Mountains of the Moon, you semi stupid metrosexual pretender.

  5. I don’t see what the fuss is all about. It’s not like HE owns slaves or anything. We no longer visit the sins of our grandfathers upon ourselves or even our sons.

    However, I completely understand that this is something a liberal would get excited about.

  7. “It is clear from the exchange how seriously Professor Gates takes editorial integrity,” PBS said in the statement posted on its website.

    Yes it is.

  8. Fancy that! He’s ashamed of something that had nothing whatsoever to do with himself but he’s not embarrassed about slapping his nutsack on people……….

  10. Doug 1: One does not inherit guilt any more than one inherits virtue.

    Yeah, but Progs think you do, which is why he’s all twitchy about it.

    By the way, not supper impressed with his movies. Now there’s something he can feel proud about, or not: how well he does at pretending to be someone he’s not, as apposed to pretending to not have ancestors he does.

  11. he’s not embarrassed about slapping his nutsack on people……….
    He’s gonna be sorry one fine day when he slaps his nutsack on the wrong somebody and that somebody spins around and slaps the crap out of his nutsack.

  12. I’ll think of this every time I see his face or hear/read his name.

  13. “They call me MASSA Afleck…”

  14. The only slavery that matters is that which is going on today, and that which can be prevented in the future, but we’re doing nothing about that. My children are having heavy weights bound to them by slavemasters in Washington, DC. The islamic world, meanwhile, has no problem with slaves TODAY …and our media and government gives them a pass.

  15. ^^ Someone who knows how should fake up a movie proposal to send to his agent for him to *star* as Simon Legree in a new, more graphic remake of Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

    (If the proposal has legs, Doug can always make the movie poster….)

  16. ^ They can bill the movie as “based on actual events.”
