"Which Conservatives should we allow on the air?"
Make no mistake about it, Don Imus deserved to be fired. In fact he should have been fired over a quarter century ago when he was calling out the N-word to black people, including Robin Quivers, who worked at his WNBC station. Imus himself confirmed that he did this when he responded in the affirmative to Larry King's question about this. So it isn't an issue of being PC. It is a matter of common decency. However, neither WNBC nor its parent company were willing to part with Imus and continued enabling him for years because Imus wisely decided to tout the liberal line. I'm sure that Imus himself isn't even all that politically motivated since like that other opportunist, Blowhard Ed Shultz, he knows were his bread was buttered and it was definitely on the Left side of the political spectrum. Perhaps the best observation of the incredible hypocrisy of NBC and the Liberals written thus far comes from Leonard Pitts, Jr. of the Miami Herald who WROTE:
Don Imus ought to be ashamed of himself, but no more so than Kerry, Matthews, Brokaw, Biden and anybody else who lacked the wit to understand that the willingness to offend in and of itself represents neither courage nor authenticity.
Yes, they all knew about what a sleazebag Imus was, including his hurling of racial pejoratives, but that did not keep them from patronizing Imus by appearing regularly on his show. In fact, I recently read an article bemoaning how Democrat politicos now no longer have a radio show to turn to in order to promote themselves. As to Imus, it is only a matter of time before his trophy wife, Deirdre, becomes revolted at having to wake up every morning next to the ugly iguana who is rapidly becoming a nonentity. I only hope she takes Don to the cleaners following their divorce. So as to Imus' fate, I have no sympathy. However, the Left is now trying to use his firing as a way to purge broadcasting of conservative thought as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD arrogantly titled, "Which Conservatives should we allow on the air?" So let us now watch the DUmmie fantasize about purging the airwaves of conservatives in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering if the DUmmies would even consider a purge of the MANY Liberals who enabled Don Imus over the years, is in the [brackets]:
Which Conservatives should we allow on the air?
[Which Liberals should we allow in the asylum?]
I see that we are in a collective tizzy over the firing of Don Imus (which, to be fair, was probably the right move for NBC/CBS to make). What's more I see several posts apparently quite seriously discussing who we knock off the air next (with Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh leading). So here's an alternate question; assuming we do have the power to get rid of voices we don't like, which conservatives should we allow to stay on the air?
[The only way you will have that power is if Congress can override a presidential veto of the Fairness Doctrine. Otherwise you will have to wait for another Hugo Chavez to be elected president as a Democrat so he (or SHE) can stifle dissent.]
Letting them know early that their jobs are safe from us, might even persuade them to go after their more egregious brethren.
[This DUmmie sounds like he wants to take over from Mike Nifong who was begging for DUke Lacrosse players to rat out their teammates over a crime that did not happen.]
The ones who comport themselves like responsible citizens.
[Translation: Those "conservatives" who do not dare to challenge liberals.]
Who gets to make that determination?
[The Central Committee for Political Correctness.]
These motherf*ckas usurped free elections in the United States, started 2 unnecessary wars, and killed over a million people, with our tax dollars. World opinion has always been against the United States (even Nazi Germany polled higher); the only thing that can save us is to purge from the public discourse the malingering malcontents. And the smokers.
[And don't forget the gum chewers. They are the WORST!]
I don't think you can under-estimate Hate Radio, look what happened in Rwanda in 1994. A million dead, genocide organized by radio, while the United States sat back and laughed.
[HUH? Bill Clinton was president in 1994 when he did nothing. Oh, and that genocide was organized by radio? News to me and just about everybody else not confined to your asylum.]
Ed Shultz. That's it.
[The only "conservative" they will tolerate is the radio host who was bribed to become a liberal.]
Isn't espousing conservatism by definition hate speech?
[And this is the mentality of the Left. Conservatism is in itself defined by them as "hate speech" so no conservative by that leftwing reasoning can be allowed on the airwaves. The Hugo Chavez argument.]
I have some 'conservative' acquaintences who don't use hate speech. That doesn't mean they aren't greedy and selfish, IMHO, but they are smart enough not to use hate speech.
[The DUmmie version of tolerance but...]
Because they don't use it around you. Doesn't mean they don't use it when you're not in their company!
[...another DUmmie gets his mind right again so as to be able to purge ALL conservatives off the airwaves.]
Free speech for those who use it truthfully and honestly
but lies and distortions and deceptions shouldn't be protected from the will of the people. And, let's face it, without lies and distortions and deceptions, there isn't any conservatism.
[Free speech but not for those who don't meet DUmmie approval.]
Back on topic, 'which, if any, conservatives should we allow on the air?' I still gotta say none for now, unless they're found not-guilty of their crimes-against-humanity charges, and that's a hugh if!
[Yeah, a "hugh" if. And only if they pass muster with the DUmmie kangaroo court.]
Democratically enacted "censorship" isn't necessarily a bad thing.
[Don't ever censor the DUmmies whether democratically or not. Their rantings provide the DUmmie FUnnies with prime comedy material, including the laugh line above.]
*ding*ding*ding* Conservative 'ideology' is based on a quicksand quagmire of lies, distortions, and deceptions, which inevitably leads to burning books they hate and the authors who wrote them.
[*ding*dong*ding*dong* That was the sound of a DUmmie trying to think about First Amendment issues.]
The goal isn't to get someone fired. The goal is to hold... broadcast profiteers responsible for the toxic wares they pedal. Does the existence of the FDA amount to banning food and drug companies from doing business? Or is its purpose to hold accountable the irresponsible ones?
[So the "reasoning" here is to use the FDA to ban Rush Limbaugh as a toxic substance.]
The reinstatement of the fairness doctrine would do the trick.
reagan killed the fairness doctrine which gave birth to the likes of limbaugh, who has proven that he can not hold down a legitimate job. He has to hate and lie unfettered. He and his kind intensely fear the reinstatemnt of the doctrine. There is no better reason to want it back.
[Which explains why the Evil Elf and other Leftwingers are pushing so hard to bring back the Fairness Doctrine aka "Hush Rush."]
I will tolerate Rushbo's lies as long as I know there's an alternative on the dial to his bile. As long as there is diversity on the airwaves, there should be room for all types of political and social speech. The problem is when those airwaves are controlled by a handful of hands and our choices of who we listen to are limited.
[The problem is that liberals consistently FAIL on the airwaves. Look what happened to Al Franken, Jim Hightower, Mario Cuomo, Err America, etc.. They all FAILED because of LOUSY ratings, not because of some secret conservative conspiracy.]
Conservatives are causing real damage to America every day, and they are able to do so by creating a climate in which their views are taken as normal. If the American people are shielded from their deceptive filth, they will be able to see the truth.
[Oh. I see it is sort of like an innoculation for the good of the American people. If only we could be innoculated from hearing conservatives, then we will be able to see the Leftwing "truth" that is unchallenged by any contrary views.]
I think they should be held in protective custody until they're frogmarched up the gallows. They believe only in money, they can be turned at the drop of a dime. But they can't be on the air in a free society.
[Feel the love and tolerance!]
However I don't think we can actually execute people for having the wrong opinion without getting the State involved, and getting the state involved would violate the first amendment. So I think will have to settle for knocking them off the air.
[The DUmmie version of tolerance. Allowing conservatives to live while censoring them.]
Have you ever been at the beach and seen a really hot looking chick? Most likely all you will end up doing is just stare at her, drooling like an idiot. If you try to talk to her you will probably embarrass yourself with your clumsy pickup lines. Well, GOOD NEWS! I now have a product guaranteed to make it EASY to pick up lots of hot looking women at the beach. It is a product I have been using myself and fully endorse: the amazing HELICOPTER KITE. This helicopter kite flies like a helicopter. You can make it go hundreds of feet into the air or hover it just a couple of feet off the ground. The propellor rotation is done entirely by windpower. So how does this help you pick up chicks? Simple. Just hover this helicopter kite a few feet off the ground near the hot beach chick of your choice. In most cases they will be overcome with curiosity and come over to YOU to ask about it. I've run a little experiment on this and it works on about 75% of the women (catch and release in my case since I'm married). My advice is to keep the conversation initially focused on the helicopter kite until you can later make a sneaky segue into asking her out for dinner. From that point on, you're on your own. Please check out the VIDEO of the INCREDIBLE helicopter kite. Not only was the helicopter kite aerodynamically designed but it is also MADE IN THE USA! So feel good about purchasing an AMERICAN MADE toy which makes the perfect method for vastly enhancing your social life. The helicopter kites have a LIFETIME warranty so all defective or broken parts will be replaced. Your purchase of the helicopter kite will not only provide you with lots of hot dates but it will also help keep the DUmmie FUnnies going. So take a look at the VIDEO and be AMAZED! Remember, those hot beach chicks are waiting!
p.s. Check out what one of our happy customers had to SAY about the amazing helicopter kite.
