Hey, kids! What time is it? Well, if it’s Thursday, that means it’s PIH day. Fasten your seat belts, my friends, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!
Everyone’s favorite rodeo clown is in full race-baiting swing; as long as his targets are Caucasian, that is. The day after the Duke lacrosse case was dropped, and the African-American accuser was was found to be inconsistent at best, and a liar at worst, the “good reverend” was doing his best to right an egregious wrong . . . by continuing his attack of radio talk show host/octogenarian fossil Don Imus.
I wonder how many train wrecks occur daily inside Al’s one-track mind?
The Reverend Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson met with Moonves on Thursday to demand Imus’ removal, promising a rally outside CBS headquarters Saturday and an effort to persuade more advertisers to defect.
Jackson called the firing “a victory for public decency. No one should use the public airwaves to transmit racial or sexual degradation.”
Said Sharpton: “He says he wants to be forgiven. I hope he continues in that process. But we cannot afford a precedent established that the airways can commercialize and mainstream sexism and racism.” (H/T – Yahoo!)
Congratulations Al, you got Don Imus fired. I hope you’re proud of yourself. So, what’s next for your Smear World Tour? Sorry, after the Tawana Brawley case, I guess you’re sensitive to the word “smear.” Will you be the champion of racism across the public airwaves? And if so, what would you say about these phrases?
“My niggas never change/They kicken it wit their gang and remain the same.” (Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony, “Everyday Thang”)
“Thug ass niggas that love to bust/It’s strange to us” (Notorious B.I.G., “It’s Strange to Us”)
“Wanna grab a skinny nigga like Snoop Dogg/Cause you like it tall/and work it baby doll” (Snoop Doggy Dogg, “You Thought”)
These rap lyrics (aired over the public airwaves) sound like the commercialism and acceptance of racism and sexism to me. I anxiously await your condemnation of them and the “gangsta” rappers who penned them.
Will somebody tell me why we’re still talking about this washed-up tool? Oh, now I remember; because she wants to be the new Angelina Jolie.
LONDON (AFP) – Pop star Madonna wants to adopt another Malawian child, a girl called Grace, despite a storm of controversy over her efforts to adopt a Malawian boy last year, a report said Friday.
Citing unnamed sources, the Sun tabloid in London said Madonna was intent on adopting three-year-old girl Grace after watching a documentary about a child care home for orphans in the African country. (H/T – Yahoo!)
Can anybody please give me an answer to this question: Aren’t there any American children worthy of adoption? Perhaps the idea of adopting an American is gauche.
Ya know, I saw a documentary about Jessica Biel the other day. Maybe should try to adopt her!
Yeah, this week’s edition of PIH is full of the usual suspects, but this bitch is really starting to piss me off. First, she intentionally tries to undermine the President’s foreign policy by making an unauthorized trip to Syria: The Armpit of the Middle East. Now, she wants to open a dialogue with Iraq’s eastern neighbor. You know, the one run by the guy who wants to eradicate Israel?
Because Holocaust deniers are always open to a nice, warm dialogue.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Tom Lantos, D-San Mateo, just back from a trip to Syria that sparked sharp criticism from Republicans and the Bush administration, suggested Tuesday that they may be interested in taking another diplomatic trip – to open a dialogue with Iran.
“Speaking just for myself, I would be ready to get on a plane tomorrow morning, because however objectionable, unfair and inaccurate many of (Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s) statements are, it is important that we have a dialogue with him,” Lantos said. “Speaking for myself, I’m ready to go — and knowing the speaker, I think that she might be.’” (H/T – SF Gate)
Well Tom, speaking for myself, I hope you both make the trip to Iran. And, speaking for myself, I hope the plane is shot down by Syria. Jerks.
