We never seem to remember the discrepancies when someone says something, and the different ways that the media treats it.
Take Don Imus, calling the Rutgers University women’s basketball team “nappy headed hos” and then apologizing sincerely, and having the team accept his apology, and still, the media did this:
Don Imus may finally be the straw that broke the camel’s back.
The nationally syndicated talk show personality struck a nerve on Wednesday, April 4, when he called the Rutgers University women’s basketball team “nappy headed hos” on his “Imus in the Morning.” And while it wasn’t the first time Imus made demeaning remarks about someone, it appears that much of black America has finally had enough.
This was something that was on the news for weeks on end, ending in the culmination of Don Imus losing his lively-hood, and everything thought it was just.
Now we have something equally bad happening…and the press is doing everything it can to give the new person a complete pass on the matter. The Person? The Reverend Jesse Jackson! The Comment? That Obama was talking down to blacks and needed to have his nuts chopped off. Now, this is where this whole thing gets dicey.
The Reverend Jack-son, as Rush so aptly calls him…*I can’t put the inflection in type* almost immediately apologized for his crude and tasteless remark when he started getting hit with it. And the press is giving him a complete and total pass on this trying to pass the apology off before most people have even heard the original Comment, which was taped by the way. But does the press play it? Oh NO, and they won’t either!!!! The only ones that did was FoxNews. But the point here is…..Don Imus was castigated for his comment, and his comment was followed by a heartfelt apology, which was accepted by the Rutgers Women’s Basketball team…..but it didn’t end there. The press kept up the coverage until Don Imus was railroaded into losing his job. But are they doing the same to Jesse Jackson? Hell no….he after all is one of their own….a liberal to the core….The only people that the Libs throw under the bus…..are members of their own families and one other group.. Barack Obama, threw his white Grandmother, and his Pastor of 20 years, and someone who was so close that he was like a member of his family, under that bus! And the other ones that they will gladly throw under the bus? The Republicans. Never themselves or other liberals. Especially a “black” one.Especially when deserving.
