Really, the person at fault here is Sharon Osbourne. If she’d have just let her husband rock out and bite the heads off of bats instead of plaster her family all over reality TV, no one would even care what Kelly Osbourne thinks about things. Or what she says about the things she thinks. Or that she even thinks about things before she says them.
Let alone, invite her on talk shows to share her opinion…
“If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?” Kelly Osbourne said on the show. “You know what I mean?”
Immediately after Osbourne’s comment, her co-hosts can be heard reacting in disapproval off-screen to what she said. Once she realized her co-hosts were not agreeing with her, Osbourne began backtracking her comments.
“Latinos are not the only people to do that,” Perez told her.
“Come on, you know I would never mean it like that,” Osbourne said.
You know who else says they “don’t mean it like that?” Bigots. But of course, Kelly Osbourne is a liberal so it’s totes kewl. That’s how liberals will sell it.
Here’s the reality: Kelly Osbourne said what she said because, being surrounded by other leftist idiots, she’s been afforded the luxury of never having to rationalize her position. Sure, she happened to be caught saying this on a national TV panel, but she’s been saying this exact same thing at Hollywood dinner parties for years. Hollywood dinner parties where everyone is in such intellectually masturbatory agreement that nobody even thinks to ask “…huh?”
Behind closed doors, leftists like Osbourne are the most horrendous bigots you can imagine. It comes from a soft-bigotry, bred by low expectations. Kelly doesn’t hate Mexicans, of course not. I’m not suggesting that at all. But in her mind, the poor little Mexican jumping across the border is only as good as his “toilet cleaning” job. That’s why leftists believe in relaxed borders and loose immigration laws in the first place. See, if you don’t believe that Mexicans are capable of anything better than sub-minimum wage, manual labor… how could you possibly believe that they’d be civilized enough to enter the country legally?
On the flip-side, we have Conservatives who have no problem with immigrants whatsoever. Zero. None. We just want to see far fewer illegal immigrants cleaning toilets, and far more legal immigrants starting business. Conservatism believes the best in people.
Leftism sees people merely through the prism of race, and low expectations.
