    Dr. Laura Schlessinger appeared with Sean Hannity to continue discussing the double standard that she believes applies to social conservatives and to explain why she’s happy about being on satellite radio after leaving the regulated terrestial airwaves as a result of her N-word filled tirade last summer. Most interesting however, was Dr. Laura’s thoughts on fellow conservative woman and media target Sarah Palin. When Hannity wondered why Palin is always picked on, Dr. Laura offered the following diagnosis: Because . . . can I say it bluntly? She has balls. And they don’t like that in a woman. She’s pretty,...

    Dr. Laura Schlesinger, the outspoken radio talk show host who was derided into resignation over an August on-air controversy, is set to return “uncensored, expanded, and exclusive to” SiriusXM Satellite Radio in January. True to form, Schlesinger plans to come out swinging on the very topic which drove her from terrestrial airwaves. In confirming the exclusive arrangement to bring her talk show to satellite radio beginning Jan, 3, Schlessinger said Monday she intends to introduce roundtable discussions. Within the first three weeks one topic will be race relations and free speech. "Racism, bigotry and hate," Schlessinger told the Hollywood Reporter,...

    Radio personality Laura Schlesinger says she has "no regrets" regarding the tattoo she got from Glenn West at Classic Tattoo in mid-October. It's on her upper left arm and shows a skull clenching in its teeth a single rose. "It is so me," she wrote in an e-mail. "It doesn't have a name. I came up with the design because I'm a 'bad ass girly girl' (ride a Harley, skipper a racing sailboat, pump iron, hike, etc.)," she e-mailed. She has posted 13 images of the work-in-progress on her website. "My son thinks it is fabulous ('live hard'), my husband...
  • Sarah Palin: Defending the Fight to Cast off a Conservative’s “Shackles”

    Does anyone seriously believe that Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a racist? Anyone, I mean, who isn’t already accusing all conservatives, Republicans, Tea Party Americans, etc., etc., etc. of being racists? Adversaries who have been trying to silence Dr. Laura for years seized on her recent use of the n-word on her show as she subsequently suggested that rap “artists” and other creative types like those producing HBO shows who regularly use the n-word could be questioned for doing so. Her intention in discussing the issue with a caller seeking advice was not to be hateful or bigoted. Though she did...

    Daily Caller ^ | 8/19/10 | Justin Duckham
    In a tweet Wednesday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin suggested that Laura Schlessinger may have had her First Amendment rights violated in the controversy surrounding the conservative talk show host’s repeated use of the n-word. The tweet reads: “Dr.Laura:don’t retreat…reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist thx 2activists trying 2silence”isn’t American,not fair”)” The former governor’s response is a little confusing, and not just because of her mangled syntax and excessive use of abbreviations. In February, Palin asked the White House to fire Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel over his use of the word “retarded.” She has also joined...

    Dr. Laura Schlessinger, the talk show host who recently apologized for saying the N-word 11 times to a caller on the air, said Tuesday she plans to give up her radio show when her contract is up at the end of this year. The conservative advice maven made the announcement on CNN's "Larry King Live," saying she wants to "regain her First Amendment rights." Schlessinger said she's not retiring or quitting. Instead, she said, she feels stronger and freer to say what she believes needs to be said. "I want to be able to say what's on my mind and...

    Dr. Laura Schlessinger chose her words more carefully this time. The longtime AM radio fixture says that she will pull the plug on The Dr. Laura Program at the end of the year, a week after repeatedly using the N-word while taking a call on the air from a black woman who wanted to discuss her interracial marriage. She made the announcement during an appearance on Larry King Live. Here's her rationale: "My contract is up for my radio show at the end of the year and I've made the decision not to do radio anymore," Schlessinger told King, who...

    LOS ANGELES – Talk radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger has issued an apology for saying the N-word several times in an on-air conversation with a caller that she said was "hypersensitive" to racism. Schlessinger said on her website Wednesday that she was wrong in using the word for what she called an attempt to make a philosophical point. "I articulated the N-word all the way out — more than one time," Schlessinger said in comments from the opening of her radio show that she posted on her site. "And that was wrong. I'll say it again — that was wrong."...

    Former San Diego radio personality Dr. Laura Schlessinger finds herself in yet another pot of hot water. Yesterday on her national radio program, the outspoken host made what many are labeling racist remarks, and repeatedly used the “n”-word. Her words: "Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO and listen to a black comic, and all you hear is nigger, nigger, nigger. 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." Later, the on-air discussion with a caller identified as a black woman went...

    On her radio show of April 24, Dr. Laura Schlessinger engaged a caller on the subject of priestly sexual abuse. Dr. Laura said she was “stunned” that the penalties for abuse “were not more severe.” She continued by saying, “So because of that I no longer, you have not heard me in all these years tell anybody to send their kids to Catholic school, where in the past I did that all the time.” Catholic League president Bill Donohue commented as follows: “I will not lose faith in Dr. Laura simply because she is not up to speed on this...

    Dr. Laura Schlessinger has never been one to shrink from controversy, and she leaped headlong into one on Monday when she said that if a husband cheats, his wife may share some of the blame. “When the wife does not focus in on the needs and the feelings, sexually, personally, to make him feel like a man, to make him feel like a success, to make him feel like her hero, he’s very susceptible to the charm of some other woman making him feel what he needs,” the popular psychologist and radio personality said. More commonly known as just “Dr....

    WOMEN are duty-bound to provide their husbands with sex on demand, claims a controversial book on achieving wedded bliss. Wives have a "loving obligation" to have sex whenever they are asked for it - even if they are not in the mood, says American author Dr Laura Schlessinger. The 56-year-old sex therapist and radio host says marriages will survive and improve if men are viewed as a "gift from God". And she urges women to stop nagging and whining, saying: "Be honest girls, that's what we do". Her book, The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, will not be published...

    Susan Sarandon and the other left-wing thought police who tried to force Dr. Laura Schlessinger from the airwaves can go have a good cry: Her ratings are up, up, up. Talkers magazine says Dr. Laura's "stunning accomplishment" is an increased audience during Operation Iraqi Freedom, when programmers, radio execs and other so-called experts figured the war coverage would leave her out in the cold. "These skeptics have been proven wrong," the magazine's June issue reports. "Clearly the baseline of what is considered talk radio's core constituency is longer and larger than was previously assessed. ... The big winner is talk...

    Brace yourself. The "Guidelines for Comprehensive Sex Education" include for ages 12 to 15 that "a few boys engage in a very dangerous and sometimes fatal form of masturbation that involves limiting their air supply," and for ages 9 to 12 that "homosexual love relationships can be as satisfying as heterosexual relationships," and for ages 5 to 8 that "touching or rubbing one's own genitals to feel good is called masturbation." These "guidelines" represent the foundation of comprehensive sex education (also known as "abstinence-first" or abstinence-plus-condoms sex education) developed by the Sexuality Information and Educational Council of the United States...
