Major Media Puffs Rapist Mike Tyson

The Walt Disney Company owns ESPN radio. I cannot believe that the great name of Walt Disney has been reduced to such disgusting filth as ESPN Radio in Las Vegas.

Mike Tyson, former boxer, convicted rapist, son of Islam, said vile, violent, putrid things about Sarah Palin, all the while laughing with the radio hosts, who took no offense when he said he'd like to see Dennis Rodman, "Pushing her guts up in the back of her head." From the audio, you could tell they were holding their sides, laughing so hard it hurt.

Walt Disney was a name synonymous with wholesome entertainment every weekend when I was a child, and at the movie theater when I was lucky. I know there are plenty of egregious examples of how ABC/ESPN/Disney has fallen from such heights of sweetness and light, and I know there won't be much done about it, but it makes the average person wonder if there is any American goodness out there.

It would be silly to look to today's media and try to believe they look for the good and wholesome. They do the opposite, they take the steaming piles of dogshit and serve them up on a plate with an aperitif. Even the recent television show from CBS, "Same Name" tried very hard to make Tyson look like a regular guy, a nice guy, a wholesome, good guy. The show's premise was to find people whose names were the same as celebrities, Kathy Griffin, Mike Tyson, Reggie Bush, and switch lives with them in hopes of both parties understanding each others lives. But if you watch the CBS promotion of the Tyson episode, he is nicely portrayed as a "misunderstood", "complex" man whose media portrayal has been unfair. The announcer goes through his past, sidestepping his rape conviction, and refers to Tyson's longtime barber who said, "Some people think he's crazy or something, because of the media, but he's definitely not that, he's a lot smarter than people think he is."

Oh, so now he's smart.

The announcer goes on to say that Tyson is reclaiming his reputation and name at 45, with Tyson saying in an interview, "I'm not as reckless as that guy before." The CBS interviewer says, "It's important that people know that about you?" Tyson says, "I can only inform them by my conduct. I can't tells them, I've told them a million times."

So ESPN/ABC/Disney allows his comments on air, laughing and all, and CBS does puff pieces about him, for him, for his reputation, even going so far as to reiterate that the folks just don't know the real Mike Tyson.

Yes, we do, and we see that major media like CBS and ABC and Walt Disney have twisted, sick agendas, giving cover to steaming piles of dogshit like Tyson.

It’s news to me Disney owns ESPN. I don’t think many would know that and those who do won’t expect ESPN to carry out Magic Kingdom attitudes. So trying to associate one image with the other seems pointless.

ESPN is about jocks and jocks tend to be crass. Business as usual.

Even if it’s about Sarah.

And Greta Van Susteren absolutely went BALLISTIC on Tucker Carlson, because Carlson printed what Tyson had said.

Just imagine if a celebrity said the same about Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton. He would never be allowed near a camera again.

Yet there was Tyson last night on the Sheen roast, yucking it up like a made-member of the glitteratti.

If Mike theory of “white women” is to be considered “true”, then did Hillary jump wild with notable black men before she went into the “white world”? Is Hillary one of the notches in Wilt Chamberlain’s bedpost?

What a coincidence -- I was just thinking yesterday about how funny it would be to see Mike Tyson's brain exit out the back of his head, after some "focused kinetic action" courtesy of Sig-Sauer.

Vulgarity and perversity are very strong undercurrents in communist nations. There are NO boundaries which means things continue to deteriorate to new lows. While holding formal dinners of their ministers and their wives, the Ceaucescus of Romania would indulge their 27-year old son’s penchant to circle the table and reach under the blouses of the ministers’ wives. The ministers would just have to sit there and take it and like it. Later in the evening, Niki would rape a serving girl or two while the chit-chat proceeded.

Here in the USA, this stuff started with the Manson family and such.

The dubious thing is that people think they can “vote” this stuff away. Communism is pretty much immune to democratic process. Mostly, it THRIVES on it.

I don’t understand Greta’s tirade against Tucker. The stuff Tucker printed was nasty and disgusting and vile, but are we just supposed to ignore that there are people out there who say things like that about Sarah Palin or others and get away with it, and in fact are celebrated for it? Why does Greta think that Tucker is committing some offense against women by letting women everywhere know the kinds of things that a guy like Tyson says about them? I just don’t get it.

I don’t get it at all.

It seems as if Greta was so offended by reading Tyson’s words in print that her head exploded, shutting down her critical thinking functions.

Scientists have spent years looking for the missing link.

It is right there in front of their faces. There are thousands of them roaming around.

Examples of nature that haven’t caught up with the formation of humans. Neanderthals living in todays world.
Mike Tyson is the Missing Link.

By the way I have never blamed Tyson for the alledged rape.
Any woman that would go to his room is either crazy or knows what the outcome will be .

Mike Tyson is vile putrid guy. The only suprising thing is that Tucker Carlson or any credible journalist would publish anything the little rapist psycho says.

ESPN radio is pretty hostile to women period. I’ve heard nasty attacks on Kurt Warner and Brett Farve’s wives and I heard a sex joke about the girl Rothlesberger ill used. It’s just the culture. The radio guys have one use for womankind and they aren’t shy about saying so.

That is a bit more than the usual “crass.” That is Muslim- dreaming-about torturing and murdering women crass.

During his heyday about 25 years ago, I watched an out-of-control Mike Tyson after the death of Cus D'Amato and made two predictions:

1) Tyson will wind up in prison somewhere along the line and

2) Tyson will be shot to death because he will get into a physical altercation with the wrong guy who will cap him.

The first prediction has been fulfilled and I'm still confident in the second.

Walt Disney was a name synonymous with wholesome entertainment every weekend when I was a child

Before Michael Eisner destroyed the joint with his Godless world view. Disney and the Bass family let that trojan horse in the gate. Iger is no better.

Disney family should have never let control slip even though they eventually backed Iger against Eisner 6 years ago.

Iger's wife is a contributor to Huffington Post.

These folks are just at their core liberal, progressive and little respect for God or traditional America.

What Eisner and Iger have done to Disney pretty much better maginifies what Hollywood and the Media have done to our culture since the 1970s better than any other example

I remember when Disney stood for decentness and patriotism and belief in God.

actually if you read up on current archeology thinking, Tyson is anything but a link to Neanderthals

it's the big turd in the punch bowl staring everyone at the party in the face that maybe we are really not all the SAME nor from the same origin

what is with the woman asked for it logic?

that is ridiculous...women should be able to not be raped anywhere..

Oh! I agree wholeheartedly about women not being raped.,

However ,if you stick your hand in an alligators mouth , don’t be surprised if you draw back a nub.

Theory is one thing reality another.

A story: I worked with this guy, he wasn’t real bright an AA hire. We went in this back yard and there was a dog there on a chain. He started teasing the dog by shaking his hat at the dog.. We watched as the dog kept backing up. getting slack on the chain. he kept teasing the dog, the dog kept getting slack, When the dog had enough slack he tore the hat from Leroy’s hand and ripped it to pieces.

You have to be smarter than the dog. Animals ,like Tyson do what comes natural to them.Put yourself in a position where they can take advantage and they will. Not smart enough to do anything else.

If Tyson was a reject of society, muttering to himself in a bar, I’d agree.

But he is treated as a hero and a “character” on MSM shows, such as Sheen’s roast last night.

If a MSM-touted personality had said the same about Michelle or Hillary, the MSM would have gone ballistic and blackballed him at once and forever.

But he spouts this about Palin, and the MSM ignores it, and invites him to big Hollywood production TV shows like the roast.

Carlson is merely trying to point out this incredible hypocrisy. But without Tyson’s words, the story has no punch, no legs, no reach.

Yes, so the MSM must not mind what he said about Palin. Which is why Carlson felt he had to “out” the story the only way he could. Which point Greta totally missed, in her outrage at seeing the printed words, period, anywhere, no matter the reason or context.

(I thought she was even-tempered and level-headed, being a litigator and all.)

I think in all honesty Greta just could not get past the baseness of the comments about Palin that were posted in that article. I am hard to shock and frankly it made me sick to my stomach. I think she just lost it for a few hours.

My personal feeling is that if it were my blog I would not have elevated this guy who is less consequential than an amoeba. I would have gone after ESP for allowing that kind of discourse. You are right though there was no outrage by the MSM and there never will be. Conservatives and especially conservative women are always going to be fair game.

Without Tyson's verbatim words, there is no story, and he gets a perpetual pass, because we are too squeamish to confront them head-on.

Were I Tucker Carlson, (and with the benefit of 20-20 hindsight he didn't have), I might have said something like, “Incredibly vile, disgusting, beyond belief rape-fantasies by MSM Darling Mike Tyson against Sarah Palin,” with strong warnings and links to his words.

But I do agree with Tucker that the MSM must be held to account. If tough female litigators like Greta VS get “the vapors” when they read such words, our libtard enemies will just laugh at us and exploit what they see as our weakness.

And Tyson will keep yucking it up on the dais with the other MSM darlings, never held to account.

(Greta, if you are googling this thread to gauge reactions, please, get a little tougher, girlfriend. Don't be the soft girl with the weakness so easily trampled that you shut down your critical thinking.)

Well we can all agree that Mike Tyson is a repulsive troll. Look at all the time a bunch of intelligent people have wasted talking about him.

Tucker and Greta should lead the charge agains’t the real problem which is ESPN. They have a lot to lose. They should be made to back down, denounce Tyson and apologize to Gov Palin and women in general. But that won’t happen. For some reason that I have never been able to understand the conservatives just are not able to conjure up that passionate self righteous indignation that the Libs can turn on and off at the drop of a hat.

I think another poster made a cogent comment about Tyson’s skull and a sig-sauer. Let me second that emotion.

Tyson didn’t say anything I have not heard black men say with my own ears for over 30 years now since they lost their fear of my tribe.

Their perspective:

1) White women crave the black bamboo like dogs like pig snouts.

2) White women are freakier and like to be handled rough and can be made to do about any fantasy comes to mind.

3) They like the getback on former “master” and know many white gals feel a missionary zeal to atone themselves.

4) They think white men are weak and can’t handle or satisfy their women or are henpecked.

5) They may think average white gal is prettier but unless you are rich black guy they seem to get the less attractive white girls...at least here in Nashville area. It’s a boon really for white girls who formerly would have had little or no sexual attention.

And there is some truth to all that...some white gals..do have a black fetish and many white men are weak as kittens.

It’s disturbing. This sort of fantasy is arguably porn’s biggest gross sector..no pun intended,

Imagine had I gone onto a black radio show and yuukked it up all the freaking I planned to do on Beyonce or any black chick icon..think Charles Barkley or Shack or Tavis Smiley or Spike Lee would be laughing.

Thing is...white men do not have brutality fetish for black women, it almost never happens...John Grisham’s factless fantasy notwithstsanding

Yet we just take it and ask for more.

I’m glad my ancestors haven’t had to see how far we have collapsed.
