Heh. The Official Obama Criticizer is back, babey!
Bo Knows! Preach on, brother, preach on!
Steve Gilbert at the Conservative blog Sweetness and Light highlights in great detail the fascist agenda of the Democrats in the whole Don Imus situation. The hidden agenda in all of this is to shut down Conservative speech. In other words, the American Left is finally showing their true fascist colors.
They gave us a sneak peek when they threatened to revoke ABC’s broadcast license over “The Path to 9/11” mini-series which aired last year. They also give us sneak peeks periodically every time they shout down or throw things at Conservative speakers or rush the stage to shut down Conservative speeches held across the country. The most infamous example is when Leftists at Columbia University rushed the stage when the Minutemen were giving a speech about illegal immigration and shut down the speech. They also are giving us a sneak peek in their efforts to shut down debate about apocalyptic “man caused Global Warming”. Any scientific facts that are presented which counter their theory, they discard and disregard. Any scientist who presents facts and data which counter their theory, they threaten with taking away their funding or they smear them by saying they are paid by oil companies or call them the equivalent of Holocaust deniers. And let us not forget the push for the Democrats to bring back the “Fairness Doctrine”, which they are doing specifically to shut down popular and successful Conservative talk radio. (Thanks to Cory in the comments for the reminder)
And now, taking advantage of the mountain the Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have made out of the molehill of the comments by Don Imus, the Democratic National Committee’s Media Arm is working to censor Conservative voices. This, ladies and gentlemen, is fascism. And it is coming from the Democrat Party. Also, of note, is that David Brock is connected to Hillary Clinton. This is just one more example of what would happen if we allow Democrats to take power in the White House. We will officially become a fascist state.
You will notice that the only people Media Matters calls out for censorship are personalities who are Conservatives. Apparently the racist, sexist, bigoted humor of such Left-wing outlets as Air America, Bill Maher and ABC’s The View are just fine and dandy.
This is not about censorship of racist, sexist and/or bigoted things said on the public airwaves. This is about shutting down thoughts and ideas of those opposed to Liberalism, Socialiasm and Communism. In other words, shutting down Conservatives. Liberals cannot defend their positions with logic and facts, so they have to use fascist tactics to win the debate.
We are heading towards dangerous, Orwellian times ahead if people do not wake up and fight the Left’s plans.
Via Steve Gilbert at Sweetness and Light: DNC’s Media Matters Wants Censorship of Airwaves
Have no fear fellow citizens, Media Matters For America is going to protect you from hearing “hate speech” on your radio.
As many here know, Media Matters is run by the professional propaganda hack David Brock.
Mr. Brock jumps on any chance to try to control free speech in this country. And the “nappy-headed” Imus incident is proving to be no exception.
From Media Matters:
It’s not just Imus
Thu, Apr 12, 2007 6:55pm EST
On April 11, NBC News announced that it was dropping MSNBC’s simulcast of Imus in the Morning in the wake of the controversy that erupted over host Don Imus’ reference to the Rutgers University women’s basketball team as “nappy-headed hos.” The following day, CBS president and CEO Leslie Moonves announced that CBS — which owns both the radio station that broadcast Imus’ program and Westwood One, which syndicated the program — has fired Imus and would cease broadcasting his radio show.
But as Media Matters for America has extensively documented, bigotry and hate speech targeting, among other characteristics, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and ethnicity continue to permeate the airwaves through personalities such as Glenn Beck, Neal Boortz, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Michael Savage, Michael Smerconish, and John Gibson…
[ . . . ]
And by “a higher standard” and “the fundamentals of journalism” Mr. Brock means barring the expression of any opinion that differs from his own — or more precisely, from the Democrat National Committee’s doctrine.
For while most people around here know that Media Matters is largely bankrolled by the self-confessed Nazi helper, convicted insider trader and fugitive from justice George Soros, it is also backed and run by top Democrats.
Go read the whole thing. It should anger you and make you sick to your stomach to know just how fascist is the Left in this country and their true evil plans they have in the works for America.
I encourage everyone to go read (and, if you are so inclined, comment on and leave kudos for) the blog of Beverly aka Whitney Blogston, a Black woman who puts the Don Imus manufactured “controversy” in proper perspective. Kudos to you, Beverly.
Here is her blog post: Imus is ousted, but rappers are allowed to stay? WHATEVER! (Updated)
The NYTimes considers what Don Imus said “deplorable, despicable and unconscionable”. Hmmm, so an irrelevant old white guy on an unpopular and irrelevent radio show calls some black women “nappy headed hos” and he is demonized and there are calls for him to be fired from Black “civil rights leaders” and women’s groups.
Yet, when the leader of Hezb’Allah (“Party of Allah”, the “god” of Muslims) states that Jews should die and Israel should be wiped off the map, the Left and the media state that we should try to understand their grievances, get to know why they feel this way.
When Muslims the world over are killing homosexuals, forcing their women to wear bags on their heads before they may leave the house, stoning women for adultery, committing “honor killings” of women for dating “infidels”, not allowing women to educate themselves, etc, the Left and the media state that we should try to understand the grievances of Muslims, get to know why they feel this way, multiculturalism donchaknow. No outrage from women’s groups.
When Iran states they want to wipe Israel off the map along with the rest of the Zionists of the world (ie the United States) and are working to obtain a nuclear weapon in order to do so, the Left and the media state that we need to try to understand their grievances, get to know why they feel this way, and send Nancy Pelosi to talk to them.
And when the Black Entertainment community degrades women and calls them “bitches” and “hos” and the Black “civil rights leadership” tells Blacks not to better themselves, because that would be selling out and “becoming White”, the Left and the media state we must understand their grievances with evil White man, get to know why they feel this way, and celebrate Black misogynistic culture.
As Jason Whitlock states, Imus is Not the Real Bad Guy.
And as Michelle Malkin notes, White people are not the ones who started “The Culture of Bitches, Niggas and Hos”.
Meanwhile, in a true case of blatant racism, in which people actually had their lives and reputations destroyed, the race-baiters are silent after contributing to destroying innocent men’s lives for the past year.
Sorry, the only thing that I find “deplorable, despicable and unconscionable” in this whole “controversy” are those hypocrits and attention-whores (or should I say attention-hos? or is it attention-bitches? or attention-niggas?) in the Black community, and others on the Left of all backgrounds, making this into a racist controversy and benefitting from the attention, while Black culture remains decadent and self-oppressive.
Why isn’t anyone saying that we need to try to understand the grievances of Don Imus and get to know why he feels this way? Maybe when the nappy-headed attention-hos at Rutgers meet with Mr. Imus, they will discuss this.
Thank you Jason Whitlock! You have expressed everything that has been going through my mind throughout this whole ridiculous “controversy” the last few days. We need more people such as you and Bill Cosby to step forward and lead the way for Blacks, instead of the hypocritical, bigoted race-baiters Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
Kudos to you, Mr. Whitlock: Imus Isn’t the Real Bad Guy
Instead of wasting time on irrelevant shock jock, black leaders need to be fighting a growing gangster culture.
Thank you, Don Imus. You’ve given us (black people) an excuse to avoid our real problem.
You’ve given Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson another opportunity to pretend that the old fight, which is now the safe and lucrative fight, is still the most important fight in our push for true economic and social equality.
You’ve given Vivian Stringer and Rutgers the chance to hold a nationally televised recruiting celebration expertly disguised as a news conference to respond to your poor attempt at humor.
Thank you, Don Imus. You extended Black History Month to April, and we can once again wallow in victimhood, protest like it’s 1965 and delude ourselves into believing that fixing your hatred is more necessary than eradicating our self-hatred.
The bigots win again.
While we’re fixated on a bad joke cracked by an irrelevant, bad shock jock, I’m sure at least one of the marvelous young women on the Rutgers basketball team is somewhere snapping her fingers to the beat of 50 Cent’s or Snoop Dogg’s or Young Jeezy’s latest ode glorifying nappy-headed pimps and hos.
I ain’t saying Jesse, Al and Vivian are gold-diggas, but they don’t have the heart to mount a legitimate campaign against the real black-folk killas.
It is us. At this time, we are our own worst enemies. We have allowed our youths to buy into a culture (hip hop) that has been perverted, corrupted and overtaken by prison culture. The music, attitude and behavior expressed in this culture is anti-black, anti-education, demeaning, self-destructive, pro-drug dealing and violent.
Rather than confront this heinous enemy from within, we sit back and wait for someone like Imus to have a slip of the tongue and make the mistake of repeating the things we say about ourselves.
It’s embarrassing. Dave Chappelle was offered $50 million to make racially insensitive jokes about black and white people on TV. He was hailed as a genius. Black comedians routinely crack jokes about white and black people, and we all laugh out loud.
I’m no Don Imus apologist. He and his tiny companion Mike Lupica blasted me after I fell out with ESPN. Imus is a hack.
But, in my view, he didn’t do anything outside the norm for shock jocks and comedians. He also offered an apology. That should’ve been the end of this whole affair. Instead, it’s only the beginning. It’s an opportunity for Stringer, Jackson and Sharpton to step on victim platforms and elevate themselves and their agenda$.
I watched the Rutgers news conference and was ashamed.
Martin Luther King Jr. spoke for eight minutes in 1963 at the March on Washington. At the time, black people could be lynched and denied fundamental rights with little thought. With the comments of a talk-show host most of her players had never heard of before last week serving as her excuse, Vivian Stringer rambled on for 30 minutes about the amazing season her team had.
Somehow, we’re supposed to believe that the comments of a man with virtually no connection to the sports world ruined Rutgers’ wonderful season. Had a broadcaster with credibility and a platform in the sports world uttered the words Imus did, I could understand a level of outrage.
But an hourlong press conference over a man who has already apologized, already been suspended and is already insignificant is just plain intellectually dishonest. This is opportunism. This is a distraction.
In the grand scheme, Don Imus is no threat to us in general and no threat to black women in particular. If his words are so powerful and so destructive and must be rebuked so forcefully, then what should we do about the idiot rappers on BET, MTV and every black-owned radio station in the country who use words much more powerful and much more destructive?
I don’t listen or watch Imus’ show regularly. Has he at any point glorified selling crack cocaine to black women? Has he celebrated black men shooting each other randomly? Has he suggested in any way that it’s cool to be a baby-daddy rather than a husband and a parent? Does he tell his listeners that they’re suckers for pursuing education and that they’re selling out their race if they do?
When Imus does any of that, call me and I’ll get upset. Until then, he is what he is — a washed-up shock jock who is very easy to ignore when you’re not looking to be made a victim.
No. We all know where the real battleground is. We know that the gangsta rappers and their followers in the athletic world have far bigger platforms to negatively define us than some old white man with a bad radio show. There’s no money and lots of danger in that battle, so Jesse and Al are going to sit it out.
