Towheaded ho’s

Fuck Don Imus. But you know what…? Fuck civility. And fuck the Seattle Times.

Really… who the fuck do they think they are pontificating about who should or should not have access to the public airwaves? [“Airwaves no place for Imus and his ilk“] And who the fuck can possibly take seriously this colorless, bland, bourgeois cabal of towheaded ho’s anointing themselves arbiters of “diversity and decency”?

I mean… what the fuck is up with that?

Does Imus come off as a racist, misogynistic, insensitive, mean-spirited prick? Hell yeah… that’s his whole schtick! That’s his stock in trade! What part of “shock jock” doesn’t the Times understand?

No doubt Imus should be raked over the public coals for his awful comments, and he deserves whatever punishment the marketplace delivers. But calling on the FCC to pull WFAN’s license? That’s censorship, pure and simple. That’s state control of the media. That’s fascism. And the Times — a newspaper for chrissakes, that owes its very existence to the unfettered rights enunciated in the First Amendment — should be just as ashamed of its offensive statement as Imus should be of his.

What’s next? Who else should be yanked from the airwaves and denied their livelihood because they offend the Times’ oh-so-sensitive sensibilities? If radio hosts should be held to standards exceeding FCC regulations, how far should the purge go? How careful must we tread? Should KIRO, as some angry letter writers have demanded, dump my show because I (gasp) repeatedly use the word “fuck” on my personal blog? Well fuckity-fuck, fuck, fuck to that!

And don’t give me any of that holier-than-thou bullshit about radio stations having a legal obligation to “serve the community.” That lie gave up the ghost back during the Reagan administration with the death of the Fairness Doctrine and the birth of an anti-regulatory crusade that inevitably led to the relentlessly homogenizing, profit-driven, media consolidation we have seen ever since. Today, the vast majority of commercial radio stations fulfill the totality of their community service with a handful of PSAs and a weekly test of the Emergency Alert System.

At least WFAN airs local content, as opposed to the hundreds of radio stations in small markets nationwide, whose absentee, monopolist owners would continue to obliviously broadcast their automated, computer-controlled, top-McForty programming, uninterrupted, while a chlorine gas-leak slowly smothered their uninformed local audience in agonizing death. If that’s what they mean by community service, then the Times editorial board has its swollen head stuck so far up its tight little ass it makes the Enumclaw horse incident look like a prostate exam.

What kind of goddamn fantasy world is the Times living in? For decades now, right-wing talk radio hosts have villified liberals like me, questioning our patriotism, smearing us as traitors, cowards and terrorists, and accusing us of treason… a crime they repeatedly make clear is punishable by death. Ann Coulter publicly “jokes” about executing a few liberals to keep us in line, calls for Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens to be poisoned, and laments that Timothy McVeigh didn’t blow up the New York Times building instead… but I don’t hear the Times complaining about her frequent appearances on FOX News. And G. Gordon Liddy once infamously instructed his audience how to deal with ATF agents: “Head shots, head shots…. Kill the sons of bitches!” Hmm. No FCC licenses revoked; no fines issued. Is that what the Times means by serving the community?

And what the fuck is “decency” anyway? Polite language? Polite lies? Does anybody but a fourth or fifth generation Blethen really want the standards of civic discourse to be defined by literary somnambulists who can’t discern the difference between seriousness and solemnity, and who wouldn’t recognize nuance if it jumped right out in front of them and shot their dog?

I’ve got news for the Times: there’s a reason why assholes like Imus and Howard Stern have millions of fans, while former newspaper subscribers flee to the blogs in droves, no matter how foulmouthed, uncivil or indecent some of us might be. It is because anything is better than the stultifying, turgidly-written, equivocating prose that often passes for journalism these days, and the arrogant, moralistic grammarians who apparently revel in using as little of the English language as possible. The Times’ market keeps growing, and yet its circulation keeps shrinking — and they have the nerve to lecture others on how best to serve the community? Give me a fucking break!

Criticize to your heart’s content. Excoriate the trash-talkers and hate-mongers for their hurtful and violent words — even do so selectively if that is what your conscience allows. But when you call for using the power of the state to silence others, you abdicate any and all of the moral authority you believe your printing presses confer upon you.

If that’s civility… if that’s decency… then I want nothing the fuck to do with it.

    Furthermore, Imus says some very funny stuff about idiot bush. What about when Rush took off after Michael J. Fox! Let the market speak. MSM spends all day yesterday going between who the fuck the daddy is and the Imus story, while 10 of our kids get killed in bushies war on Sunday. What about their families and those kids who will never know their parent. Our kids are getting killed in a war that most Americans don’t support, poison is in TONS of imported wheat gluten that even humans may be eating and who the hell cares who the daddy is and Imus dominate the news.

    What Imus said was wrong but let the market and future guests if any determine the outcome.

    You’re right Rush was tacky and wrong and he admitted it too. Rush said Mike Fox was using his disease to make a political statement. Fox did admit he was using his disease to make the statement for stem cell research on CBS shortly thereafter for Claire McCaskill!

    When I was bringing myself up to speed on Imus, I saw the following entry on Wikipedia:

    “Imus took on the Veterans Administration when the Washington Post published a story uncovering the deplorable living conditions at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Consequently, Imus’s rants preceded many Army resignations, including that of Gen. Kevin Kiley, the Army’s now former Surgeon General. Kiley apparently lived adjacent to the troubled building; he testified before Congress that he had no idea of the deplorable conditions because performing barrack inspections was not in his job description. This totally outraged Imus, who unleashed a daily relentless attack on Kiley’s personal fitness for military duty and dedication to his wounded troops.”

    Could this be bush Family Evil Empire payback and/or an attempt to remind Imus of his place?

    I work with the National Association of Broadcasters and I can tell you that broadcast media is not consolidated and studies have shown that diversity in radio programming has expanded in recent years, despite what you personally have experienced.

    It’s got absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with PC. Let ‘em criticize. Let ‘em call for boycotts. Let ‘em scold all day long – that’s about all their good for anymore. But the minute they start calling for station licenses to be pulled, they leave PC waaay behind, and enter the realm of book-burning and political imprisonments – a realm in which the heel-clicking Blethen family obviously feels more comfortable.

I have always said this! You just can’t read or process information. Your fogged mind of GWB hatred can’t allow you to see and think properly!

    I always said Jesse Hi-Jackson was a charlatan on this point. I was the one here who wrote about the attacks on Bill Cosby when he mentioned this.

Wha’ you think you are, a stop sign?” it would have everyone in the audience siezed in gut-splitting laughter.

    First, it was that great “libtard” news outfit, MSNBC, that was the network that did a lot of the investigative reporting on the incident, and has been calling, along with other MSM, for investigations of Mr. Nifong.

    The MSM has been onboard with the idea that these young men were being railroaded for some time now. Lots of “libtard” opinions in the MSM that these young men were being “rushed to judgement” and that Mr. Nifong was out of control.

    Next, Rev Jackson and Rev Sharpton have been almost completely silent about the whole affair from the beginning. Considering that they usually jump right in after any headlines along these lines, their silence speaks volumes.

    Lots of us “libtards” have been of the opinion that those young men were the victim of a prosecutor pandering to voters, trying to look “strong” and “decisive”.

    Oh, and Puddybud? While I realize that you’re having fun calling us “libtards” and “dumbasses” and “Donkocraps” and any number of other names, I wonder if you realize that many of the non-Christians here judge all of us by your words?

    Somehow, I cannot imagine that if I were not a Christian already, that your words would encourage me to become one.

    Snow closes schools, grounds airlines

    By NATHANIEL HERNANDEZ

    Associated Press Writer

    CHICAGO — Hundreds of airline flights were grounded Wednesday, a major league baseball game was called and six people were killed in accidents on icy roads as yet another spring snowstorm hit the upper Midwest.

    North Dakota and South Dakota both measured about 7 inches, and 5 inches fell in Madison, Wis.

    “It’s kind of flying sideways,” hardware store owner Harvey Neu said in Menomonee Falls, Wis. “It’s not like a gently falling snowfall. It’s more of a get-out-of-my-face type of thing.”

    About 500 flights were canceled at O’Hare International Airport because of poor visibility, said city aviation spokesman Gregg Cunningham.

    Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport also had delays and cancellations.

    “I think we are all cranky about the weather,” said Pat Rowe, spokeswoman for General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee. “We are ready to be done with winter, but that’s the month of April in Wisconsin. … There’s really nothing that anyone can do besides book a flight to a warm location before the storm hits.”

    Six people were killed in two separate accidents in Iowa, including a woman and her two children when their minivan collided with another minivan in the state’s south-central region.

    Wednesday’s Houston Astros at Chicago Cubs game was postponed because of the storm. During the weekend, heavy snow wiped out scheduled Angels-Indians games for four straight days at Cleveland, and their contest was finally moved to Milwaukee’s enclosed field.

    In Minnesota, truckers pulled over in droves to wait out the storm.

    “It’s snowing and blowing and sloppy and slushy,” said Katie Toots, a cashier at the Shell’s truck stop in Albert Lea, near the Iowa state line in south-central Minnesota. “A lot of drivers just decided to stay put, ’cause further south it’s not any better.”

    Nearly two dozen school districts canceled classes Wednesday across southern Minnesota, where up to 6 inches of snow was forecast. More closed in Iowa, where numerous vehicles had slid off slippery highways.

    He had a privilege, and he abused it. Fire him. It has never, not ever, been acceptable for a powerful and wealthy white man to use such abusively demeaning language against innocent persons of color. Jesse Helms must be about to blow a gasket (and I hope he does)– for decades, he was our country’s No. 1 unapologetic white racist, and in all of that time, even he never dared to use such language in public. (And maybe in private– even his most bitter critics claimed he was a soft-spoken fellow when not campaigning.)

    We have standards in this country, and the people who caterwaul the loudest about the slipping of such standards always do the most to degrade our lives. Start firing them right here, and reinstate the Fairness Doctrine. That alone will end most of the broadcast filth, because corporate owners will never stand to hear a left-wing Limbaugh or Imus skewer actual corporate whores in the terms Imus used for talented collegiate athletes.

    Ah, Mr. Rather.

    Actually, these were the main stories from MSNBC between April and June 2006. There were lots more just from that one network.

    CNN had stories as far back as May 2006 pointing out that the DNA evidence did not back up the accusations.

    The Washington Post had similar stories also dating back to May 2006, as did the AP, Reuters, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, etc…

    But of course you actually know this. You’re just enjoying wasting my time. In fact, I have had difficulty finding any major mainstream media outlet that was not reporting on the lack of DNA evidence, and the changing story of the alleged victim.

    If I just post that “most of the mainstream media was telling this story many months ago”, you ask for specifics. Actually, Puddybud wanted specifics.

    When I post specifics, you complain that I only post three. How many would you like? Will ten do? Fifty? A hundred? My going hourly rate for doing research is $100.00 per hour. Let me know where to fax the contract. I’ll start pulling more references as soon as I have the signed contract and a $500.00 retainer.

    No, “Dan”. When I posted those three stories, it was because those three were some of the furthest back. Printed soon after the charges were filed, and on both MSNBC and NewsWeek.

    So, where are your “thousands” of mainstream media stories?

    In reply to #86:

    Lots of people don’t seem to understand that the term “Global Warming” refers to a rise in the overall average temperature of the earth. This can cause both warming and cooling at the same time in different areas. The earth warms, and glaciers melt. Melted glaciers introduce more fresh water into the seas, causing certain northern harbors that usually remain ice-free in winter to see more ice-buildup,year after year.
    This upward trend in average global warming can cause a change in regional climates, upward or downward on the temperature scale.

And I also wrote above how Sean was one leading the charge because of the attacks you can easily find on left wing turd sites attacking him for “How dare he question “the evidence””!

    I remember watching Sean on the show and how Alan attacked him as being wrong last year just after the case started. If you are blind like Clueless then I can’t help you.

    I posted this search “Sean Hannity says duke accuser is wrong March 2006″ and “MSNBC says duke accuser is wrong March 2006″.

    The first entry from Google was 4/19/04 for attacking Hannity. That’s before 4/24!

    I hadn’t known that Mr. Hannity had put up a story that early. I suppose that I should make the point that he had also apparently rushed to judgement (albeit correctly) before most of the facts were known, but there is no disputing that he was correct on this story, and very early on.

    To get back to the original topic,(I know that’s difficult for many of you), here’s Goldy’s words at the end of his post: “But when you call for using the power of the state to silence others, you abdicate any and all of the moral authority you believe your printing presses confer upon you.”

    Frankly, we are fast becoming the epitome of a Jerry Springer society. It seems to have become more important to have an audience and notoriety when confronting conflict than it is to attain resolve and mutual respect. That model seems to serve the needs of the exploited and those who seek to exploit; reinforcing all that relegates objectivity to the outhouse while making the frailty and imperfection of the human condition a spectacle that harkens back to the Coliseum.

    This situation isn’t and shouldn’t be about whether liberals or conservatives, this race or that race, hip hop or honky-tonk, one group or another, are more offensive and therefore more responsible for all that is wrong with America. I am not capable of judging the whole of Don Imus nor am I capable of crafting a recipe to fix all of America…and neither are the countless pundits and partisans who have sought to frame it so.

    I’m not a religious person…but I often find kinship with the imagery surrounding the portrayal of one called Jesus and his teachings of understanding and forgiveness. For all the banter I hear about the Bible and Christian values, it certainly seems to me that we are fast abandoning what many view as the sacred “tablets” in favor of the sacrosanct tabloids. If I’m right, all I can say is heaven help us.

    It is my stance that the FCC has no purpose to exist other than to censor. It was created in a time when Americans had a choice of a handful of radio and television stations. Back when we didn’t just have the ability to change the station (which by the way, would have gotten Imus fired as well as anything else… IF and only if people were as offended by his statement as they pretended and actually stopped listening to his show). Now we have hundreds of television channels and radio stations to choose from. If you don’t want to see some guy giving his boyfriend a rimjob, change the fucking channel. If you don’t want your kids to see it… why the hell would you leave them unsupervised in front of an unrestricted television anyway.. what kind of parent are you?

    There is NO valid reason for the FCC to exist anymore. Censorship protects nobody except those who are too lazy to change the station. Do we really believe that some sweet old grandmother would flip through the channels and come upon a scene so very horrid that she would drop dead of shock? Do we think that children can be ruined by watching filth on television.. and it would be anybody’s fault but their parents?

    Its time we get rid of the FCC. It served its purpose and not goes above and beyond what it was ever intended for. Its a danger to the First Amendment. When something threatens the Second Amendment there is no shortage of Convervative opposition, why are Progressives so apathetic about losing the rights they are supposed to care about?

    FUCK THE FCC.

    David.. do me a favor.. drop a couple of F-bombs on your show. Don’t pay a fine. Fight it, based on grounds of being unconstitutional. If you want to give a warning, go right ahead “Sorry folks but I am about to use what some would consider offensive language, here is your ten second warning to change the station……….
