Don Imus and Sharpton

Don Imus Under Fire

Don Imus is in trouble. He did the unspeakable. He called the women's basketball team at Rutger a bunch of "nappy-headed hos". And for that, he has been forced to apologize on a daily basis. He was threatened with a boycott and forced to go on the Reverend Al Sharpton's radio show to grovel.

On Sharpton's show, Imus said, "I'm not thinking it's a racial insult that's being uttered at somebody at the time. It's in the process of trying to rap and be funny." he said. But he added, "I wish I hadn't said it. I'm sorry I said it."

However, his level of grovelling must not have been enough. The Reverend Shallow Threat demands that Imus be fired. And in addition to that, he demands that CNN and MSNBC hire more black anchors. However, there has been no indication that he will demand extortion, the usual tactic of the fake Reverend Jesse Jackson. Jesse's normal extortion demands are contributions to his Rainbow Push Coalition. It worked for his extortion of Toyota, GTE, Bell Atlantic, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Paine Webber, Coca-Cola, Viacom, SBC, Ameritech, NASCAR, and Boeing. How else can someone who doesn't actually do anything for living make millions of dollars? He's extorted more money from Americans than Peter Franchot, Nancy Pelosi, and Ted Kennedy.

That reminds of a joke (and this is just a joke that I heard from someone and it must be totally false, because it cannot possible be true). Jesse Jackson's secretary called into his office and said, "Mr. Extortion, Ms. Mahoney is on the phone and she wants to know your opinion about the abortion bill." Mr. Jackson replied, "Tell that ho that I paid that bill!!"

But I digress. Back to the other pretend reverend, Mr. Sharpton, who, following an accident in which a black girl was run over by a Hasidic Jew, incited a crowd by saying that the diamond merchants (a derogatory terms for Jews) to "pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house" to settle the score. The crowd went nuts, threw rocks at houses, burned cars, and lynched 29-year old rabbinical student Yankel Rosenbaum.

Sharpton has demanded that Imus be fired for his racially incentive words. If he is not fired, he is going to call for a boycott of CBS Radio and MSNBC. I'm all in favor of the boycott of MSNBC. Who the hell wants to hear Keith Obermann whine everyday about what a jerk Bill O'Reilly is? Come on! We all know O'Reilly's a jerk. But it sure is fun watching him get the libs all pissed-off and telling them why they're wrong.

Now, don't get me wrong. Imus is a donkey for what he said. Why would you even say something like that? Why must idiots in our society say such things about people of different enthicities? I'm all in favor of advertisers pulling out of the program and MSNBC losing lots of money for keeping his show on the air. I'm in favor of him wearing a dunce cap the entire time he is on the air. I'm in favor of him being forced to watch Detroit Lions football games. What could be worse than that?

Sharpton's message is clear. A white guy saying insensitive things about another race cannot be tolerated. Now let's not confuse this with the lyrics from rap stars who have many inspirational lyrics about our feminine counterparts.

Take for example these samples of lyrics by African-American rappers (or is it rappists?)

F**K Dat B***h, by 50 Cent - If a B***h don't like me somethin's wrong with the b***h...(f**k that b***h)"

Shoot Cha in a Minute, by X-Raided - "I'm still shootin mothaf**kas the war path never stops" and the ever-popular refrain, " If she f**k wit me she gonna be sh****n led bricks"

Kurupt -by the poetic Dr. Dre - "Hos forgot to eat a d**k can shut the f**k up"

Let's not interpret these lyrics by our fine young artisitc young minds by using our morally relative views of the world. It's just not relevant. Don Imus must go!
