I am working on a couple blog postings related to the general reaction to bigoted comments by celebrities and how these things are dealt with. I have conflicting feelings, and so I am breaking them down into (current plan) two posts. One focusing on my problems with “silencing” people we do not like. The second post will address why I do understand that very tendency.
I am opening with this preface partially to ask that if you take issue with the first post, to wait and see if I address the concern in my follow up.
Overall, December may be ending in a blogging explosion of thoughts from me.

People…famous people and not so famous people are completely free to make any sort of idiotic remarks that they chose.
They are also free however, to suffer the material consequences of those remarks.
I need to write on this, but agree that there is a certain sameness in these situations.
