Beyond the Pale (More Al Sharpton)

This from Al Sharpton regarding Kelly Tilghman’s Tiger Woods remark:

But Sharpton insists it doesn’t matter how profusely someone apologizes, no more than it matters who forgives Tilghman for her remark.

“It’s not about Tiger Woods. It’s about the station. It’s about using public airwaves to offend people,” Sharpton said. “Some things are beyond the pale of discussion.”

“Beyond the pale of discussion” means that you’re such a gigantic pussy and you know you don’t have a valid point so you declare the subject to be off limits. It’s the same reason religious people declare certain speech to be “blasphemous”. Try discussing with a theologian the philosophical possibility that the Bible was inspired by an evil and lying God in which case we would be screwed whether we worship Him or not. It’s just as valid a possibility as the traditional Judeo-Christian concept of God and it’s not a problem that can be dismissed by referring to Biblical scripture so the only answer is to declare the question blasphemy and beyond the pale of discussion because it’s not a debate you can win. THAT is the strategy Al Sharpton is taking with the above “beyond the pale” comment because he’s a gigantic pussy.

As a curious aside, the very phrase “beyond the pale” stems from Russian Jewish history which brings to mind Al Sharpton’s stellar relations with the Jews. Beyond the pale indeed. . .

    I thought he was making fun of white people. Turns out he is just being offensive about a particular brand of white people.
