A Rush To Racism

Limbaugh

I just can’t get over how pathetic people can be.  We have people complaining that a person who is seen as extremely divisive and players don’t wish to play for him are somehow being unfair.  People are complaining because blacks don’t like to see white people in black face whether they meant it as just a joke, or whether or not it IS supposed to be an artistic endeavor in a magazine.

I was totally disgusted last night while looking at CNN when some stupid sports guy from St Louis said that by people not wanting Rush to own a team and him being discounted from the running that some how this was a real deal high tech lynching.  Umm, WTF!  Does this man even have a clue as to what he’s talking about?  Is the right wing spewing hate against Obama a high tech lynching?  I bet he would say no.  But who would be surprised.

It is NOT a lynching or racist or anything else besides people being vocal about their displeasure with a man who they don’t like his ideas.  You would think that this would be understandable to these people.  Don’t they scream that they have the right to disagree with Obama and protest him because they don’t agree with his ideas?  So how the hell is this a high tech lynching but what is being done to Obama is somehow NOT.  I’m just asking.

And now people are writing posts complaining about the pc police because others find black face offensive.  It is almost as if what is being said is that it doesn’t matter if the black face bullshit offends blacks as long as white people find it funny.  It doesn’t matter one damn bit what country it happens in, the crap is offensive.  I don’t understand how that is being politically correct.  What people need to do is educate themselves instead of allowing ignorance to reign supreme in their lives.

I guess what Vogue is saying is that instead of actually HAVING black models, we will create our own.  Isn’t that what was going on in the movie and music industry?  They made black people out of white people in order to NOT have to worry about actually giving blacks a job.  And sure it SOUNDS funny, but think about it.  Why NOT just hire black models, is it too much trouble or there aren’t any?

And for the idiots portraying the Jacksons, why dress in black face in order to act like the Jackson 5?  What is funny about the skit?  Dressing in black face and looking like a stupid buffoon or the actual singing and dancing?  Because if it is the latter then you don’t need black face to dance around and look stupid!  Yet, some white people, the ones who commented on this, obviously don’t see that.  They wish to compare this crap to some stupid Wayans movie called White girls.

For one thing there hasn’t been any precedence for blacks dressing up like white people in order to make them look foolish.  There is a LONG freaking history of blacks being the brunt or butt of the joke when whites are dressing up in black face.  There is also a long freaking history of white dominated fashion industry overlooking minority talent.  You can count the top minority models on one hand, even though the fashion industry has been around for generations.

It seems to me that we are FAR from being post racial.  In fact we seem to be moving backwards more towards blatant racism AGAIN.   So instead of looking at Rush Limbaugh talk about living in an Obama nation where white kids are beat up on busses while black kids yell “right on.”  Maybe he should have said that we are now living in a Rush nation where black ladies with their children walk out of restaurants and get the beat down by racist white men all while screaming racial epithets.

Or maybe it’s the Rush nation where black people have to go back to the early 20th century and be happy about black face.  We can look up to those “dandified darkies, or happy go lucky coons.”  We should be happy that we see a black likeness on the screen at all whether they are aimed at exploiting blacks or not.  We should just be happy go lucky.

To me it just seems like a nation where people such as Rush are allowed to prey on the stupidity of others.  Where else but in America can a junky pollute the minds of millions and still act like he has the moral high ground.  Or spew things that are racially suspect at best and still have a bunch of minorities following him.  Things are becoming worse and somehow the problem is not being racist but pointing out the racists.

Wanda Sykes Takes Rush To Task

wanda-sykes

I will admit that I don’t like Wanda Sykes one bit.  But the tongue lashing she’s taking from the right wing after her appearance at the white house correspondents’ dinner is a bit hypocritical.  She criticized Rush Limbaugh which I can’t fault her on.  She said things such as I think Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker [on 9/11] but he was just so strung out on OxyContin he missed his flight. He needs a good water boarding — that’s what he needs.”  And “he wishes the president would fail well I wish his kidneys would fail.”

Now what I found so funny was that a journalist actually said “Imagine if a comedian “joked” that Obama was a terrorist who was guilty of treason and should be tortured and allowed to die. There would justifiably be an outcry.”  Now I don’t know where the hell this guy was during the elections but these people not only called him a terrorist they said he palled around with them and was an undercover Muslim among other derogatory and untrue statements.

And I didn’t once here the right wing cry about it.  And in fact in some cases the one banging the “he’s a terrorist” drum was the Republican Vice President elect Sarah Palin.  Now as far as I am concerned Rush Limbaugh is a fat sloppy junky who seems to be in control of the Republican Party.  And whether or not Wanda Sykes makes fun of that is neither here nor there for me.  Sure she wished the guys kidneys would fail, but isn’t that freedom of speech just like Rush wishing the president would fail?

What’s the big deal?  She is a comedienne and just like Rush said after he blasted that wished the president would fail all over the air waves, he is just a comedian making jokes.  Can’t the same be said about the ever irritating Wanda Sykes?  Why doesn’t the right wing head its own advice and take a joke for a joke.

So what is the issue?  That Wanda Sykes was well beyond tasteful with her jokes?  Who around here didn’t know that this idiotic lady had no taste?  And who the hell ever cared about someone not having good sense or taste before?  No right winger gave a damn that Rush had and has no taste or good sense.  Hell where was Don Imus’ taste or good sense when he was calling black ladies nappy headed ho’s?

The real problem is the hypocrisy or the right wing that leaks like so much sweat on that fat ass Rush’s forehead.  They will lead the witch hunt yelling about birth certificates, Muslims, friends being terrorists and all that then turn around and act like a stupid joker named Wanda Sykes somehow speaks for the entire Democratic Party.  Oh my god, give me a break, please.  And leading the charge is Michelle Malkin who has said some of the most erroneous things that anyone can say.

This whole situation is a joke!  When are we going to grow up in our taste for news and a government?  We are failing as a people and it has nothing to do with who our president is, what Wanda Sykes says or that Rush Limbaugh wishes we would.  We are failing because instead of seriously looking at working together as a people we continuously separate and point the fingers of incredulity; instead of actually making this a better place for EVERYBODY.  This is just my two cents on this un-news story.
