Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, August 08, 2019

Actress and activist Rosanna Arquette said Wednesday that she feels shame and disgust for being white. "I'm sorry I was born white and privileged," Ms. Arquette tweeted to her nearly 90,000 followers. "It disgusts me. And I feel so much shame." The actress sparked criticism earlier this week after she tweeted a photo of herself kneeling in front of several U.S. flags and the caption, "I'll never stand for the flag again." Her Twitter account has now been set to private.

Rosanna, like most fading celebrities, is desperately seeking relevancy.

It's too bad, she is mostly nutter but I think her heart is in the right place most of the time.

Fun fact: Most people who know her well in Hollywood realize that she really wasn't acting in Pulp Fiction.

The answer is simple. Buy a one way ticket to a third world country to live out the rest of your life repenting for being born white and privileged. Of course after donating all your worldly goods and money to charity. My guess is she really doesn't feel guilty but needed some press. Actions speak louder than words, yeah, I'll wait, not.

She's worth 9 million. Maybe she can donate a million or two to a good cause, like a homeless shelter, to assuage her guilt.

Telling you would think that's a sufficient amount.
That's like two dollars for every homeless person in America.
Like two dollars is the line between homeless and normal person.

He's a very confused, mentally unstable individual. Used to hate Republicans. Somehow, he got himself filled with right wing hatred so now it's Democrats he hates. The ones responsible for his being able to live day to day.

Dude, you are the one that should seek help.

You know what kind of obsessed jerk you must be to grovel around on a website to find a couple of quotes 11years ago by some individual you don't even know, just to point out what exactly?

He didn't like Republicans? and I bet he still doesn't like Republicans.

Nulli hasn't changed so much as the Left and Democrats have left the reservation.

"You've become a different person."

Lots of posters on this site have become a different person. Some literally.

If you think about it, it's not really that drastic of a change to go from a partisan of one group to a partisan of another group. It's like people with addictive personalities who change out one addiction for another. And as sites like this show, politics is addictive to many people.

She's now claiming that 'the FBI' told her to lock down her Twitter account and make it visible only to her followers, to protect herself from the mean critics:

"There are toxic and very vicious people on social media. Threatening and cruel," Arquette said. "I said yesterday the I am ashamed of the color of my skin. I am privileged just because I'm white. I feel shame. Because of all the violence that is happening in America and other racist countries."

I am pretty well off, but I didn't receive this via silver spoon, its not how my father is, I worked at Wendy's, went to college, worked 24/7 as a software engineer. I didn't receive TrustFund money until 40; he didn't even tell me it was coming. It was a wonderful gift.

Before that money came Nulli and I worked on a device that enabled companies to earn Billions.

I myself invested in those companies when they were $2 a share, today its split 8 times and is worth $200 a share today.

My TrustFund is just something I love rubbing your noses in, I love how you stick in my face like its something I should be ashamed of.

I am privileged, I am the millionaire next door, but it doesn't mean I don't empathize with people without the same means, it doesn't make my PoV any less than anyone elses.

In fact given my travels, by all indications, my understanding of the world, and or privilege is much greater than than the average American.

For instance today I am transferring software knowledge to India, because we just can't find young people here to do the work. Entry level software engineering, imagine.

Americans don't know how privileged they are, but they will find out in good time.

you should understand that nobody has a problem with your wealth.

political ideology trumps everything. If you started agreeing with those posters who attack you constantly, then all is well. They'd even change their opinion that your travels, knowledge, profession, etc all make your opinion worth MORE...not less....because they agree with the opinion.

the rest of it is nothing but 3rd rate insults.

Women do live with problems men usually don't.

Women have been fed all sorts of false guilt.

Time and again I read where women have had ideas put in their heads they aren't good enough for one reason or another and then women pick up the message and run with it.

Feeling guilty for just being who she is is just sad.

If anything perhaps she should be feeling guilty for having rich privledge if she isn't helping others.

It isn't a shame thing.

It's a 'I came from a very different environment' thing.

Cool, your dad made you work at Wendy's. Thing is is your next meal didn't depend on it.

I am privileged, I am the millionaire next door, but it doesn't mean I don't empathize with people without the same means, it doesn't make my PoV any less than anyone elses.

As am I. You sound like you had my life but better.

Which is why I rag on you. You seem to deny that that environment played any role in where you are today.

As for you and empathy I simply don't see it. Maybe your posts are intended as some sort of dry humor? I don't know anything beyond what I read under "posted by AndreaMackris".

"You seem to deny"
"Maybe your posts are intended"
"I simply don't see it."

no direct accusations...everything is all based on your interpretation. Nothing concrete.

don't get me wrong...you're entitled to your opinion of Mackris and that's fine.

Having not done an in depth study of mackris' posting history, I can't give you graphs and figures if that's what you're looking for.

nowhere.

and yes, this is subjective to a huge degree which is why I posted on this.

our disgust towards other posters comes for many reasons.

and some of it's justified, IMO.

but ask yourself....has Mackris attacked you like some posters here have?

#53 | Posted by eberly at 2019-08-09 01:03 PM | Reply

Nope.

I don't care if people attack me. My feathers are well oiled and it's what I expect when I log in here. The gladiatorial nature is part of the ...charm.

However, the one thing I can't abide, and is the source of my attacks on people like sheeple and Nulli and often Mackris, is intentional dishonesty. People that come here are far too well informed to believe some of the trash that's posted.

It's for that reason that I interact regularly with JeffJ, RoC and, on occasion, sheeple without it being a flame war. Because there's an attempt at honest discourse there. I might not agree with them, but the intention is true.

I would add you to the list but I don't consider you a righty.

#54 | Posted by jpw at 2019-08-09 01:20 PM | Reply

Eberly, since you asked, it read like this to me:

I'm privileged.
I've traveled so much, I know the value of being privileged.
Other people in the U.S. don't know what I know. If they did, they'd be way more grateful.
But they don't. And they don't even try. They are spoiled.
And I'm offering them work. But we'd have to pay them to work for us, but we can't actually say that.
So we say "we just can't find them here."
So screw them, we'll find people in India that will do the work for us. For much less. Plus they just say "yes" because they are way more desperate than these spoiled kids in the U.S.
But it's OK. Those spoiled Americans will find out soon enough how right I am.

Which pretty much is the underlying tone in most of what Mackris posts. Has been for years. But for Mackris or now Null, the attacks are about "ideology."

They aren't. Not for me anyway. They're about using ideology to justify their toxic and bitter view of everyone else.

IMHO, of course.
