Well, as you’ve probably heard by now, CBS Radio just fired Don Imus–in addition to his firing, yesterday, from MSNBC.
As I’ve written several times since this controversy erupted, I don’t like Imus one bit and never have. But his firing is a tragedy because it is a huge victory for the PC Thought Police Nazis. Hate to say it, but on that, Rosie O’Donnell and I are in agreement (for the first and, probably, last time).
This is also a huge victory for Al “White Interloper” Sharpton and Jesse “Hymietown” Jackson . . . and all of their ilk. It strengthens them. My friend, Braunstein Speaks, says it best:
Don Imus was fired-not by NBC or by CBS-but by Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. . . .
Mazel Tov, America. You Lost, They Won . . .
Who put these two clowns in charge? You did. Every time you said, “let it slide” you gave them aid. Every time you overlooked some stupid deed because, “what else can you expect?” you added to their power. Every guilt-driven liberal who feels that blacks cannot be held to the standards that all others live by gives Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton sustenance. . . .
It’s a lot easier to ring the forty-year-old liberal guilt bell. Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, the New York Times, and, of course, CBS, NBC, and ABC will all come running. Pavlov demonstrated this “classical conditioning” on dogs over 100 years ago.
Wake up. If you think it’s bad now, wait for the Muslims to hit critical mass in this country. I never met a liberal who could resist the siren call of Sharia law, or the honor of “dhimmitude.” . . . Wake up.
And it’s not just liberals at fault, here. It also includes a couple of prominent female conservatives who knee-jerkingly called for Imus’ ouster in unison with Sharp and Jack and the rest of the PC squadron. One of ‘em, the clueless Elisabeth Hasselbeck, was cheering Sharpton on–completely clueless about even one basic transgression in Sharpton’s history of racism and anti-Semitism. Yup, that’s why she’s the “conservative” on ABC’s “The View.” She’s the gun-moll for America’s political gangsta scum, but she’s too dumb to notice. Kinda like J-Lo with Sean “Diddy” Combs at the shooting at the club.
And it’s also a huge victory for specimens like Snoop Dogg a/k/a Calvin Broadus, who uttered this gem in a “statement” (if you can call it that) released to MTV News:
Admittedly, Snoop and some of his peers have called women “b—-es” and “ho’s” in their lyrics, but as the Dogg put it Tuesday afternoon (April 10), there is no parallel to what Imus said.
“It’s a completely different scenario,” said Snoop, barking over the phone from a hotel room in L.A. “[Rappers] are not talking about no collegiate basketball girls who have made it to the next level in education and sports. We’re talking about ho’s that’s in the ‘hood that ain’t doing sh–, that’s trying to get a n—a for his money. These are two separate things. First of all, we ain’t no old-ass white men that sit up on MSNBC [which announced Wednesday it would drop its simulcast of Imus’ radio show] going hard on black girls. We are rappers that have these songs coming from our minds and our souls that are relevant to what we feel. I will not let them mutha—-as say we in the same league as him.”
Snoop did say, though, that the media needs to treat Imus as it treats some MCs (or football players, even).
“Kick him off the air forever,” he said. “Ban him like they did [Adam] ‘Pacman’ Jones. They kicked him out the [National Football] League for the whole season [for numerous violations of the NFL’s personal-conduct policy, including multiple arrests], but this punk gets to get on the air and call black women ‘nappy-headed ho’s.’ ”
At the time of this interview, Snoop’s arraignment on felony charges (possession of a firearm and sale or transportation of marijuana) was looming.
Wow, I had no idea that–in addition to being the Trash-Connoisseur-in-Chief–Snoop was the Master of “distinctions” without a difference. And, FYI, people died and were paralyzed, due to Pacman Jones’ actions, and he is a multiple-arrestee. Imus’ statements never resulted in violence to anyone or any arrests.
Yup. Score 2 firings for Snoop, Jesse, Al, and posse–with two conservative chicks taking their positions as the gun molls. A big fat zero for America.
The Race-Merchant Terrorists Have Won.
