That jackass doesn’t have any room to talk about what goes over the airwaves. Every conversation he has with Hannity is full of racism. Why is that okay?

He just said ‘broad’.

What an outrageous insult to all women. Women who are fighting in Iraq, women who are working to support their families, women who raise the future generation......

I think I’m getting the hang of this.

The Left have always wanted to get rid of Talk Radio because they can't compete in the arena of ideas. They see this episode as an opportunity. Last night, Olberman led with the question, what about Limbaugh, Savage, Beck and Boortz. Zahn on CNN had a similar piece.

Pathetic yet a little frightening the way these people think and what they are willing to do.

Imus knows he’s a goner at CBS. He’s publicly going after Sharpton, so there’s no way he’s not getting canned.

This is going to stir up a crapstorm. What strange bedfellows we make, to be defending Don Imus of all people.

I think what he said was “there’s a lot more money to squeeze out rich whitey corporations, and we intend to continue our extortion un-abated as always....”

And thus a political movement which began with “The Free Speech Movement” in Berkely in the early 60’s and counted as a first victory Carol Doda’s “right” to display her silicone enhanced boobies at a night club now takes another step toward censorship and restriction of speech.

We do have a 1st Amendment. Sharpton can rant all he wants, but the 1st Amendment stands. Any attempt to control the airwaves will probably be struck down by the USSC.

That is, essentially, what I heard.

Also, I heard Jesse saying he would be meeting with CBS and NBC executives to shakedown talk about why there are not more blacks on air doing the news.

It’s not a defense of Imus per se. It’s a defense of free speech and my disgust at the hypocrisy of the media.

Where was the outrage when Jackson called Jews hymies and NYC hymietown?

Where is the outrage when Rose attacks Christians on a weekly basis?

Where is the outrage when Condi Rice was called a slave mistress to George Bush? She’s been called worse than that, but I’ll stop there.

First Admendment dictates EVERYTHING is allowed on the airwaves. Now if the station wants to filter what is aired due to public outcry, that is their choice.

You are correct. Al Dullton & Co. see Imus as the start, Rush, Hannity, etc. are next.

I know a lot of folk on FR aren't Imus fans, but this really isn't about Imus, it's about control of talk radio.

They’re coming after Rush, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin. First Amendment doesn’t apply to people who don’t march to their tune, I guess.

We’d better not hold our breath for that to happen.

And now that Dems hold Congress, they’re going to bring up the Fairness Doctrine again. Republicans are going to be wandering in the wilderness again for 40 years if they don’t get some backbone and start standing up for themselves. We need some red meat or a lot of people are going to stay home.

Only difference is that "Sharpton" is easier to spell.

There was that one notable political “cartoon” showing her as Aunt Jemina, too. We need to put up a good fight for talk radio, and make sure it gets all the way to the USSC, where I believe any of these misguided attempts to shut up the right will be struck down.

The only problem with this “dialogue”, as Sharpton says, is that he just killed the only show that would give him the platform lol.

Nobody else is going to dedicate shows to this topic except for a maimed Don Imus. I’m not worried about Rush, Savage,OReilley,Bortz etc. because I don’t think you’ll see them use real racist language. Of course the intellectually challenged Jesse Jackson and Sharpton think not being for quotas or voting for Obama makes one racist.

There are many more examples even more graphic. I edited the above. The point is where is the outrage?

Where are the Marxist thought police?

Where is the MSM?

Why is Time Warner given a pass for publishing this racist garbage?

If our Congressional Republicans had an ounce of sense, they would make a huge stink about the ugliness thrown at Condi, Clarence Thomas and Christians and Republicans in general.

None of the Democrats had any shame about coming out and condemning Imus, but our side of the aisle is largely silent when ugly things are said about Republicans.

I’m sick to death of it and it’s ruining our country and our party. And a lot of Republicans are so sick of the spinelessness in Washington they’re going to stay home in ‘08. I won’t, but I know some people who will.

Ok, so George Carlin’s 7 words are all fine to say over the airwaves now?
Oh, and this is the same USSC that rendered the Kelo v. New London ruling?

Ok.

I suspect the Left has a bigger goal in mind than just Don Imus. This whole thing is way too big now.

Fairness Doctrine? Review board for all talk show hosts except NPR and Air America?

Just in time for the election, too.

OK, that’s my rational side. Now for some paranoid moonbattery- Dierdre Imus is the real target because of all the yapping she does about the medical establishment- it’s the people who supply toxic cleaning compounds to hospitals ganging up with the people who put mercury in vaccines trying to silence her by removing her mouthpiece and pulpit.

Scoff if you want, but the First Amendment is pretty much sacrosanct, and even leftis jurors are likely to strike that one down. After all, one day some of this nonsense will bite them on their rears when it’s THEIR free speech that is struck down. Nevertheless, we must vigorously protest any attempts at censorship.

This is great. To use the parlance of the street, SET IT OFF! Baby, its on. This is the spark that’s gonna start the rumble we need in this country.

This is a FREE SPEECH Fort Sumter Moment, in terms of free speech, and now we can finally blast these liberal bastards back.

They want thought control? They want permitted speech? Well F**K Sharpton and His Mugabe Loving, Obama Embracing, Nappy Headed Ho— fellow travelers.

One DUmmie tries to tell me what I can and cant say, and I will Reginald Denny his ass...

OH don’t remember Reginald Denny— GOOGLE IT you queers...
