Sarah Palin Tweet HeyTammyBruce Liberals defended Shirley Sharrod, lecturing about importance of hearing statements "in context" For everyone except Dr Laura of course.
Many years ago Siamese twins were born. They were separated. By necessity, one died. Despite their best efforts, the other died a year later. Tammy said the mother should have been forced to abort, rather than cost all that money. That will always be all I know about Tammy bruce.
I was shocked when I read the actual transcript of Dr. Laura’s words. I was shocked that Dr. Laura felt the need to apologize.
Brevity is not only the soul of wit, but of communication as a whole.
Funny how Twitter compels that!
Why she took a call from such a nincompoop caller.
Dr. Laura what were you thinking.
SP made an unforced error by getting involved in this nonsense. It gave the left a chance to try to turn the topic away from the GZM and the is 0bama a Muslim? issues.
I hardly think this will turn the media. Stupid and biased as they are, Sarah gave them NO wiggle room. Both examples are EQUALLY contextual therefore eqivalent.
It almost seems orchestrated. The caller has now gone on the record with her new leftist buddies.
Caller: OK. Last night - good example - we had a neighbor come over, and this neighbor - when every time he comes over, it’s always a black comment. It’s, “Oh, well, how do you black people like doing this?” And, “Do black people really like doing that?” And for a long time, I would ignore it. But last night, I got to the point where it
Schlessinger: I don’t think that’s racist.
Caller: Well, the stereotype
Schlessinger: I don’t think that’s racist. No, I think that -
Schlessinger: No, no, no. I think that’s - well, listen, without giving much thought, a lot of blacks voted for Obama simply ‘cause he was half-black. Didn’t matter what he was gonna do in office, it was a black thing. You gotta know that. That’s not a surprise. Not everything that somebody says - we had friends over the other day; we got about 35 people here - the guys who were gonna start playing basketball. I was going to go out and play basketball. My bodyguard and my dear friend is a black man. And I said, “White men can’t jump; I want you on my team.” That was racist? That was funny.
Caller: How about the N-word? So, the N-word’s been thrown around
Schlessinger: Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO, listen to a black comic, and all you hear is n*****, n*****, n*****.
Caller: That isn’t
Schlessinger: I don’t get it. If anybody without enough melanin says it, it’s a horrible thing; but when black people say it, it’s affectionate. It’s very confusing. Don’t hang up, I want to talk to you some more. Don’t go away.
I’m Dr. Laura Schlessinger. I’ll be right back.
After taking a commercial break, Schlessinger resumed her discussion with the caller:
Schlessinger: I’m Dr. Laura Schlessinger, talking to Jade. What did you think about during the break, by the way?
Caller: I was a little caught back by the N-word that you spewed out, I have to be honest with you. But my point is, race relations -
Schlessinger: Oh, then I guess you don’t watch HBO or listen to any black comedians.
Caller: But that doesn’t make it right. I mean, race is a [unintelligible]
Schlessinger: My dear, my dear
Caller: - since Obama’s been in office
Schlessinger: - the point I’m trying to make
Caller: - racism has come to another level that’s unacceptable.
Schlessinger: Yeah. We’ve got a black man as president, and we have more complaining about racism than ever. I mean, I think that’s hilarious.
Caller: But I think, honestly, because there’s more white people afraid of a black man taking over the nation.
Schlessinger: They’re afraid.
Caller: If you want to be honest about it [unintelligible]
Schlessinger: Dear, they voted him in. Only 12 percent of the population’s black. Whites voted him in.
Caller: It was the younger generation that did it. It wasn’t the older white people who did it.
Schlessinger: Oh, OK.
Caller: It was the younger generation
Schlessinger: All right. All right.
Caller: - that did it.
Schlessinger: Chip on your shoulder. I can’t do much about that.
Caller: It’s not like that.
Schlessinger: Yeah. I think you have too much sensitivity
Caller: So it’s OK to say “n*****”?
Schlessinger: - and not enough sense of humor.
Caller: It’s OK to say that word?
Schlessinger: It depends how it’s said.
Caller: Is it OK to say that word? Is it ever OK to say that word?
Schlessinger: It’s - it depends how it’s said. Black guys talking to each other seem to think it’s OK.
Caller: But you’re not black. They’re not black. My husband is white.
Schlessinger: Oh, I see. So, a word is restricted to race. Got it. Can’t do much about that.
Caller: I can’t believe someone like you is on the radio spewing out the “n*****” word, and I hope everybody heard it.
Schlessinger: I didn’t spew out the “n*****” word.
Caller: You said, “N*****, n*****, n*****.”
Schlessinger: Right, I said that’s what you hear.
Caller: Everybody heard it.
Schlessinger: Yes, they did.
Caller: I hope everybody heard it.
Schlessinger: They did, and I’ll say it again
Caller: So what makes it OK for you to say the word?
Schlessinger: - n*****, n*****, n***** is what you hear on HB
Caller: So what makes it
Schlessinger: Why don’t you let me finish a sentence?
Schlessinger: Don’t take things out of context. Don’t double N - NAACP me. Tape the -
Caller: I know what the NAACP
Schlessinger: Leave them in context.
Caller:I know what the N-word means and I know it came from a white person. And I know the white person made it bad.
Schlessinger: All right. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Can’t have this argument. You know what? If you’re that hypersensitive about color and don’t have a sense of humor, don’t marry out of your race. If you’re going to marry out of your race, people are going to say, “OK, what do blacks think? What do whites think? What do Jews think? What do Catholics think?” Of course there isn’t a one-think per se. But in general there’s “think.”
And what I just heard from Jade is a lot of what I hear from black-think - and it’s really distressting [sic] and disturbing. And to put it in its context, she said the N-word, and I said, on HBO, listening to black comics, you hear “n*****, n*****, n*****.” I didn’t call anybody a n*****. Nice try, Jade. Actually, sucky try.
Need a sense of humor, sense of humor - and answer the question. When somebody says, “What do blacks think?” say, “This is what I think. This is what I read that if you take a poll the majority of blacks think this.” Answer the question and discuss the issue. It’s like we can’t discuss anything without saying there’s -isms?
We have to be able to discuss these things. We’re people - goodness gracious me. Ah - hypersensitivity, OK, which is being bred by black activists. I really thought that once we had a black president, the attempt to demonize whites hating blacks would stop, but it seems to have grown, and I don’t get it. Yes, I do. It’s all about power. I do get it. It’s all about power and that’s sad because what should be in power is not power or righteousness to do good - that should be the greatest power.
First I’ve read the entire transcript.
Shirley Sherrod gets a pass, but reading Dr. Laura in context and SHE is a villain?
Laura should not have apologized.
There may be more important issues that Sarah should be discussing, but that said, Sarah is correct when she defends Dr. Laura's use of the N-word. The context was not racist.
“SP made an unforced error by getting involved in this nonsense. It gave the left a chance to try to turn the topic away from the GZM and the is 0bama a Muslim? issues.”
Actually, jobs and the economy are the topics we should be focused on. These two issues will cost Democrats their seats on Capitol Hill, not the Muzzie stuff.
I hate it when someone on our side tells then unpleasant truth, and the APOLOGIZES FOR IT.
Agree. I don't think it was "smart" to actually say the word repeatedly. But she should not apologize. She should call out the NAACP for not speaking out against the incessant use that language within the black community.
“Actually, jobs and the economy are the topics we should be focused on. These two issues will cost Democrats their seats on Capitol Hill, not the Muzzie stuff.”
You are exactly right. Those will be the two issues once the campaigns really heat up after Labor Day. The Muzzie stuff and “vacationgate” are useful during this slow season to keep 0bama on the defensive until it’s time to rain - JOBS, JOBS, JOBS - 24/7 up to election day. SP didn’t get anything out of this and gave the left a chance to change the subject to ‘right-wing hate.’
What’s truly noble about about Palin’s defense of Dr. Laura is that, last I remember, Dr. Laura was no fan at all of Sarah Palin.
Yeah but Bruce is one of those rare pro-American leftists. BTW she has a girl-crush on Sarah.
I want to make a public statement about Sarah Palin; former Governor of Alaska and candidate for Vice President of the United States.
As you know, Tuesday night I announced that I will leave radio at the end of my contract in December so I can speak freely and openly about issues that concern me without fear of retribution against my advertisers and radio stations.
On Wednesday, in her Tweet and Facebook, Sarah Palin made strong statements in my support. You may remember that, two years ago, I was less than enthusiastic when she was selected by John McCain to be his running mate, as my concerns were that having responsibilities for small children should preclude such a decision.
I spoke with her yesterday and told her how impressed I was with her character. You dont see such character much these days. I believe most folks would have had a more negative approach considering I had not been supportive at that time. But, nope, not Sarah. She is gracious and a woman of principles no petty reaction.
She and I have a lot in common. We both find ourselves on the receiving end of vitriolic partisan attacks. We both made huge changes in our lives to be able to protect the people we love and have a freer context in which to try to help Americas families.
By the way, we had to end our conversation after a few minutes because she had to get her kidlet off to first day at school. Seriously adorable moment.
--Dr. Laura Schlessinger
And the video is sprinkled with the N word.
Why do we accept it out these kids?
They need to held to a higher standard.
