the age of enlightenment

Don't you just HATE hate-speech? I know that I surely do, because hate is evil and I hate people who hate. I want to do mean, hateful things to hateful people, just to demonstrate how morally pure I am and how much I hate hate.

We've become so enlightened today that we can spot hate even where it doesn't exist and jump right up to hate it when it's not there. Now THAT is real proof of a sensitive society.

"There can be no excuse for what was said," Dorsey said. "Dave Lenihan has been let go. ... There is enough hate. We certainly are not going to fan those flames."

Uh... Dorsey... bite my Cracker ass, you gutless, nutless, politically-correct nimrod. If YOU aren't fanning the flames of hatred with your purile, Puritan reaction to this non-incident, just what the hell ARE you doing? I would call YOUR strutting "unacceptable, reprehensible and unforgivable," but that's just MY humble opinion. Asshole.

The radio host sung a song of praise for Condi Rice, then dropped an accidental word-bomb at the end. What did people hear? What did people react to? NOT the song of praise or what the guy actually said about Condi--- just the word-bomb. Oh, yes, we are a sensitive bunch today. We don't have any SENSE, but we damned sure are SENSITIVE.

I'm sorry, but I just don't see how you teach "tolerance" through mindless intimidation.

You know what REALLY frosts my balls about this half-assed morality play? Let somebody say that white Southerners need to stop lynching blacks and stop burning black churches. Forget the fact that such charges are racist lies. Do you think THAT person is going to be excoriated for speech that is "unacceptable, reprehensible and unforgivable?" Hell, no. They'll be cheered and quoted by all the newspapers for taking a bold stand on the issues.

We're living on a got-dam Animal Farm today.

Sounds like an innocent slip to me. Condi should get to decide whether he gets to keep his job.

Nope, not an animal farm. That is an insult to the animals. Besides Condi is not a big coon and anyone that has ever seen her on TV knows she is actually kind of small

I realize that this is off point but "frosts my balls?" Ouch.

On point: why wasn't Pat Oliphant fired from his job as poltical cartoonist for drawing the visual equivalent of the remark that got Lenihan fired?
Oh yeah. He's on the left in a leftist business.

Remember, all the animals are equal.

But some are more equal than others....

It's a veritable verbal minefield. Sheesh.

This really pissed me off.

And the guy was not even allowed to finish the show, didn't they have him off the air within 20 minutes?

He caught himself and apologized profusely. Any talk show host could have this happen. Any of US could have it happen in regular conversation.

And he was making a PRO Condi Rice statement!

I heard this guy on Sean Hannity's radio show the other day and what he meant to say was, " ... coup in ..." but he was talking so fast it came out sounding like "coon." He realized how it sounded as soon as it came out of his mouth and apologized profusely but the damage was done. In hindsight he should have restated his original sentence more slowly so he could enunciate more clearly.

I don't know anything about the station he was working for, but I'm thinking the pro-Condi statement was what really got him fired. The "word bomb" was merely a fortuitous excuse.

Being as the guy was new, I'm sure he was under a lot of pressure to "perform." I could imagine what it's like in radio today, especially after the whole Bubba the Love Sponge/Howard Stern controversy. People are not very sure of what can be said on the radio where obsenity is concerned, never mind what is politically correct.

Poor bastard was probably nervous as a whore in church on Sunday....Oh My God!...I didn't mean to say that...I am so sorry.

Ps...please excuse the spelling...I can't get my spell check to work in your comments box.

Nothing worse than frosty balls!

Some pigs are more equal than other pigs I guess.

write a letter where it counts and get this guy his job back.
