Left-Wing Kids’ Network Nickelodeon Honors Chick-Beating

By Debbie Schlussel
**** UPDATE: Chris Brown Withdrew from Nick Kids’ Awards, today, but NOT at the request of Nickelodeon ****
You have to give Nickelodeon–the vapid network aimed at kids–credit for incredible chutzpah.
For years, the cable channel, has featured specials hosted by Linda Ellerbee, lecturing your kids on everything from being nice and “tolerant” of Muslims after 9/11 to why nuclear weapons and the Iraq war are bad. Oh, and then there’s the promotion of teen baby mama Jamie-Lynn Spears by the network.
But after years of moralizing, Nickelodeon itself is filled with hypocrisy. Network execs say they will leave singer Chris Brown, who’s been charged with beating girlfriend/singer, Robin “Rihanna” Fenty, on the ballot for the 2009 Kids’ Choice Awards. No biggie that Brown has been charged with two felonies for the assault on Rihanna.

Chris Brown: Nickelodeon Honors the Guy That Did This to Rihanna

After all, it’s “democracy.” Don’t you get it? The kids have a right to choose, no matter how bad the candidate.
Yup, these idiots that run Nickelodeon think their stupid Kids’ Choice Awards is some sort of hallowed American Presidential election, where no-one can take someone off the ballot for chick-beating. Hellooooo . . . .? There’s a reason you have to be 18, i.e., an adult, to vote in elections in America. This is a stupid kids awards show, where winners get slimed, for G-d’s sake. It’s not immune from interference by responsible adults. The problem is trying to find one at the MTV Networks offices (MTV Networks owns and runs Nickelodeon). Instead the network released the statement that they can’t interfere in the balloting process:

“The kids who vote will ultimately decide who wins in the category,” Nickelodeon said in a statement Tuesday.

So, to sum up Nickelodeon’s “morals” and worldview:
Brainwashing your kids with left-wing politics and indoctrination . . . Awesome! Telling your kids that beating women up isn’t okay . . . um, it’s not right for us to judge.
This is what happens when you tell kids they can’t judge (unless it’s conservatives and conservative values they’re condemning). You raise a nation of kids who will tolerate even the intolerable, like beating women up “just ‘cuz.”
Oh, and guess who’s coming to Brown’s defense? Why, it’s none other than admitted Muslim polygamist singer Akon, whose songs are simply vile (when they’re not cleaned up for Top 40 radio) and himself has a record of violence, including beating up a fan at a concert.

“I wouldn’t take anybody’s personal issues or problems,” Akon told the Associated Press. “I won’t hold them accountable for that when it comes to work.”

Yup, look the other way on wanton, gratuitous violence. And tell kids to do the same. Excellent. Well, I guess–since this idiot Rihanna took him back–we should reinforce that message to America’s kids. Right?

This isn’t new for Nick. In 2003, when NBA star Kobe Bryant was then under the gun and had been charged with raping a woman in Colorado, the network refused to take him off the ballot from that year’s Kids’ Choice awards ballot. I was on MSNBC’s “Scarborough Country,” debating this with actress Kathryn Joosten of ABC’s “Desperate Housewives,” who insisted that he should remain on the ballot and that he was innocent until proven guilty. In Chris Brown’s case, we’ve seen the pics of Rihanna’s face. Clearly, he beat her.
I still believe, even though Bryant managed to beat the allegations and get them dropped, that you don’t keep accused criminals on ballots of kids’ awards shows.
It ain’t exactly rocket science.
The Kids’ Choice Awards show airs on Nickelodeon on March 28th.

Nick is where the indoctrination begins. It is then further reinforced in the public school classroom, and in the university, the final touches are applied. After that, voila! A Marxist is voted POTUS. Who is surprised?

What the hell has happened to this once cool network. When I was young nick was a cool network. Now it’s become a damn joke, and a tool for psychonutism.

While I’ve gone on record for loving Tarrantino movies, yes I know a sour subject with you, I do not support violence in real life AT ALL.
I wasn’t sure if the photo above was of Rihanna or Hellboy.
What’s really sad in this whole story is the fact that they are back together again. It’s not as if she cannot support herself,
I’m sure she has some scratch even if her songs are wretched. I’m sorry not my type of music, more of a rock and roll fan here.
The question begs to be asked: Who is the idiot here? Nickelodeon for trying to capitalize on an unfortunate event or Rihanna for allowing this loser back into her life?

Chris Brown is no longer on the ballot. He opted out.

NOTE**-Brown is PICTURED wearing the Palestinian Khaffiyah (as a “muffler”), Symbol of Islamic Terrorism.

As of this writing Brown pulls his name out of contention. I suppose him winning the award would make Nickelodeon look like the fools they actually are. Just like MTV is the worst thing for music, Nickelodeon is the worst thing for children’s programming.
Rihanna probably won’t testify for the prosecution and get married to Brown. Ike and Tina all over again.

I am disgusted. My gut tells me the “reunion” between Brown and Rihanna is a publicity thing because Brown’s record sales TANKED.
Those of us who work with DV victims know that ‘Anger Management’ does NADA! ZIP! In fact a large portion of these guys just know how to “use” the system better and either kill or maim their partners.
But Nick? They are being publicity & media whores. Chris Brown should not have even been on the roster to be voted for – but his handlers are so quick to clean up his image.
I fear we have another Ike Turner in training.

Until reading this post, I was blissfully unaware of the existence of this Chris Brown. Thanks.

Nickelodeon would only ever appear left-wing to a dangerously extreme right-winger. To us normal, psychologically healthy and reasonable people, its stances are quite obviously neutral. It is not “liberal” to preach being tolerant of other cultures or to avoid war (wherever avoidable), it’s human. No Conservative actually ENJOYS hating or ENJOYS their country at war. They just pretend to get pissy about anti-war sentiments because, hey, it’s what “THE LEFT” (an imagined term) thinks, so it must be bad!
That said, I agree with you that they were being tasteless idiots for not booting this guy’s ass.
