Every Last Iota of a Cracker I hate it!
Creating Orwellian Worldview ^ | 8/16/10 | Alaphiah

Posted on 08/16/2010 7:42:11 AM PDT by Alaphiah123

In defense of Dr. Laura Schlessinger and all Adult thinking people in America

I received a phone call from a Black friend who knows that I write this blog. He wanted to alert me of Dr. Laura Schlessinger’s most recent travail with the archaic notion of freedom of speech in America.

According to my friend, Dr. Laura said the word Nigger. After a lingering pause, my friend obviously waiting for my response, I said half jokingly, “…and then she killed someone?” but to my friend this was no laughing matter. So I asked, did Dr. Laura call someone a Nigger or did she simply say the word? He said that he didn’t hear it himself he just heard Al Sharpen talking about it on CNN. “You can turn to it and see yourself,” he said.

I told him that a T.V. wasn’t available to me right at the moment but I would look into it and get back to him. He said, “You’re good at researching on the net I’m sure you can find it.” First, I assured him that Dr. Laura is a good person and a consummate professional. I said that I’m sure that this was a complete misunderstanding. I thanked him for the “heads-up” and then we hung up.

I did query the subject. I think I put in Dr. Laura and the word “Nigger” and sure enough, the net was on fire with flames of condemnation, which were threatening to lap up the career of Dr. Laura.

"According to my friend, Dr. Laura said the word Ni****."

Has the N-word become a formal title...I see they are capitalizing it now...in two different places.

What she said was correct, and then she made a sniveling, stumbling, foolish target of herself by showing how weak she is. I can’t imagine how she survives this at this point, but perhaps the race piranah will accept her apology, possibly in a manner similar to the way Shirley Sherrod’s was accepted...

What I would ask her is if you don’t mean something, then why say it in the first place?

Vocabulary unused is soon lost. Page 670 of my 1942 Webster’s collegiate dictionary contains the said forbidden ‘N’ word. It was in really unused condition, the word not the dictionary, until an event took place in 2008 and subsequent events have only served to prove the point. Remaining comments self censored.

This is a very dangerous road - changing the meaning and outlawing the use of words.

Words have both official and unofficial meanings. If the unofficial, contextual, meaning carries unacceptable meanings then the society needs to correct that by action not censorship.

We attempt to censor our children's use of certain words. How successful is that? Look at the current hits in the Rap Music world for that answer. Requiring the child to describe the sexual act in detail (the words meaning) frequently embarrasses them enough never to use it in your presence as a swear world (contextual meaning).

If you want to see where is act ends look no farther then Germany 1933-1945.

The better question is does self censorship do more destruction to the soul than resisting political correctness?

Think about it Frank.

The author forgot another no-no word that enrages blacks. It is Spade. We had a black lab in the 60’s that we got as a grown dog and his name was Spade. I was stopped at a gas station, Spade was in the car about to jump out of the window. I screamed SPADE to get his attention. I also got the attention of 2 black girls who were there. The looks on their faces and the fact that they were moving towards me made me afraid they they were coming to beat me up. I quickly said “bad dog Spade, bad dog”. They seemed satisfied that I was talking to the dog and not them and I didn't get my ass kicked.

I don't understand how black people can object to the N word when they use it themselves when talking about other black people. I know for a fact that they do.

In the 60’s calling them “black people” was an insult, they wanted to be called Negro. Now that is an insult. Some politician insulted them by calling them “you people”.

I give up! I am not going to call them anything and they can call me honkey, I don't care.

Why did they yank it??? Was it because you said faggot, or because you outed Shep Smith?

I don't understand how black people can object to the N word when they use it themselves when talking about other black people.

Because they become a protected class of people who can then do and say things others can't.

They become above the law and thus become a minority ruling class.

South Park did an episode where Randy Marsh said the forbidden word on “wheel of Fortune” and was a pariah afterwards, even though he “apologized” to Jesse Jackson by literally kissing his butt. This incident reminds me of that. Many incidents remind me of that.

One thing I've found out about this wonderful forum since first joining in 1998 is, there will be those who make it their life's work to jump on every post, every sentence, every word...just to get themselves some attention.

I think if you'll look up some of my posts you'll readily see that I am not a slave to political correctness. There are rules on this board and I like it here, so I play by the rules as much as I can.

The article already spelled out the N-word several times, so I didn't see the need to repeat it again.

If that is a source of annoyance for you, then that is your problem, not mine. The "destruction of my soul" is my responsibility, not yours...and I thought about it long before you suggested it.

"Why did they yank it???"

Only two possible explanations:

1: The Admin Mod was a faggot

2: The Admin Mod was someone with a regular habit of yanking it.

It’s yet another example of the double standard. Supposedly the reason blacks can use the word, is because of the context. They aren’t using it as an epitath. They use it as a term of endearment, or punctuation. Therefore, since Dr. Laura used it not as an epitath, but to issustrate a point, where’s the harm? No harm, no foul. The only foul was that it ruffled some feathers of the usual suspects. Unless and until the black community stops using it altogether, it will never go away. They are the ones that brought it back into the lexicon.

You would think by now that every conservative in the world who has a public voice should never never never use the n-word in any context whatsoever. There are blacks out there who have nothing else to do except audit every word spoken by conservatives. We all know that we are held to a different standard, so we have to be smarter in getting our ideas across. Sad commentary on the state of freedom of speech in America, but it’s reality.

Re: Spade
Actually, in the 50’s and 60’s, the term “spade group” was used by black musicians to describe other groups of black musicians. I didn’t know it was demeaning.
Point taken, however. Will address my black dog as, “Snowball” from now on.
As a matter of fact, I did call him “Snowball” when I used to bring him as a therapy pet to a nursing home. One of the residents thought I called him, “NoB***s” and one of the orderlies quipped that he had a brother in law like that.

Spot on. Some in the black community use this word A LOT...it is in the cultural lexicon now, not just the ghetto culture, but plain old, inclusive American culture. Pathetic.

I knew that our society was heading toward the ditch, about 5 years ago, when a Kool-Aid commercial had a little black girl say to the camera: Oh, no she di-int! Ugg. I was horrified. I only saw that commercial a few times...I guess people complained and they pulled it...Still, it was a harbinger.

I think the word N*gger has a lot of hate and anger and sadness attached to it. I would not dream of calling somebody this word. That said, NOBODY is going to tell me I CAN'T SAY A WORD. I won't use it on this board as it is against the rules...but if I chose to say it in my personal life, I will.

The people that are screaming for Dr. Laura's head have completely ruined the word RACIST. It has little sting anymore. Idiots.

I imagine Dr. Laura is finished. Her show is certainly not as popular as it was 10 years ago...this will just hasten her departure. Sad that just having the nerve to say what she said (kind of a logical response IMHO)is going to force her out. I loathe the PC arseholes.
