Huh, where was Obama and his leftist friends when this came out?

Where was the outrage, like there is for this rodeo clown today.

Death of a President (2006)

Years after the assassination of President George W. Bush in Chicago, an investigative documentary examines that as-yet-unsolved crime.

I thought that was a pretty hilarious skit. And Murphy’s voice was surprisingly good.

The skit was an ausition for a (supposedly rehabilitative) production of Gigi starring the prisoners. Garret Morris was doing his audition when he sang that song. Immediately proceeding that, Chevy Chase playing a pedophile prisoner auditioning.

NO! These were jokes. If you don’t like em—don’t see their movies, TV shows or support any products they are linked with. Its called freedom—that means freedom for me and freedom for people I disagree with—Voltair said it best (a really wise Frenchman) “I disagree with everything you say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it!”

It was hilarious and so was the rodeo clown's, but Eddie Murphy didn't have a NAAWP, coming down on him for his skit.

Just pointing out the double standards Obama and democrats live by.

Well, they aren't exactly an apples to apples comparison. I assume that rodeo clowns perform in an exaggerated comical way, which one would not take seriously.

But Eddie Murphy was performing a sketch on a satirical show, and it was pretty over the top. (Credit to Tim Kazurinsky for the assist) But, the additional fact is, Murphy didn't specifically talk about harm coming to the president of the U.S.

It was clearly a joke, and it was done in 1982.

Because unlike our thin-skinned President, we white people didn’t take him seriously.

Oh yes I remember that one.

Morris also did the Hispanic baseball player Chico Esquala “baseball benn berry berry good to me”.

(I recall zero outrage over that one also).

I'm not saying there should have been such a big deal about this rodeo clown, I just said it wasn't an apples to apples comparison to that SNL sketch.

By the way, comparing me to Karl Rove is the worst insult I have ever endured. And totally unjustified. Thanks, a lot.

And yet you defend Eddie Murphy, while not defending the rodeo clown.

If anything Eddie Murphy should do a Charles Barkley(ala Zimmerman), and tell the NAACP and leftists to lay off the rodeo clown.

You obviously didn’t read what I said. I didn’t fail to defend the rodeo clown. It’s stupid that this became a big deal. I just don’t think it’s particularly relevant to a 25 year old TV sketch. Apparently the people of Missouri are angry about this. I can’t do anything about it.

Actually it is the democrat establishment in Missouri, who are mad at the rodeo clown, and you should be mad at the dem Missouri establishment for their outrage, of making a mountain out of a molehill.

Apples are apples.

Murphy was making fun of several things at that time. For some reason back then some venues and clubs were booking groups of which they had no idea what they played. It was almost epidemic. Reggae was so popular the groups were in high demand. Just being a reggae group was almost an automatic booking. Murphy was also making fun of Bob Marley’s living large after reggae took off.

I understand that, but why should Eddie Murphy get a pass, while the rodeo clown gets crucified?

Shouldn’t SNL provide proof that all “performers” and cast members have successfully completed sensitivity training?

Shouldn’t the FBI and HMS investigate these terroristic threats?

Shouldn’t the president of NBC and SNL resign immediately?

Not really much of a parallel.

Gotta think it over a little more and get beyond the race angle.

HILARIOUS skit.

” . . . but buy my record first!”

I miss him doing stand up. Stone sober, and I laughed so hard I vomited.

He did a lot to bring the races together, in my opinion. He helped blacks and whites laugh at each other. He also provided a funny glimpse into how black families worked.

Myself as well. I’m not a hypersensitive PC whiner. One of the better race-based skits is Dave Chappelle as Clayton Bigsby.
