Speech is free, but the free ride on hate speech is coming to an end. It used to be so easy, even a caveman could do it. The United States of Unconsciousness,however, is finally waking up. What's good for General Motors is no longer good for American business---

bigotry, anger, smear, derision and disrespect.

The Emperor's New Suit-Better than Janet Jackson's Super Bowl Wardrobe Malfunction!

The pimps have their latest media slut-- Imus.

Don looks like an aged re-tred hooker with pancake makeup on. He may not have worn a suit but he turned into one-- poster boy for corporate America's 21st Century (Stone Age "Sticks and Stones") FREE SPEECH business model; the loophole that allowed the whore to climb into the dialogue of talk radio.It's a noose and: No noose is good news---even those with a long rope get ultimately hanged by the same rope.

The Department of Wishful Thinking-

Don is getting his walking papers. It was like running Family Guy on PBS anyway. Time for Satellite XM Sirius--- the junkyard of radio? Think again-XM is jonzing for FCC approval of its merger with Sirius. Hiring Imus would be a bitch slap to the whole process.

IMUS' (electronic) lynching is just the latest "Celebrity Bigot" story to make the ABCNBCCBSCNNFOX Wrestling Smack Down ; getting in the Steel Cage with black "civil rights" leaders. Remember Mel Gibson druken Malibu rage and Kramer's (Michael Richards) rant at the Laugh Factory--and their morning after "my bad" mea culpas.

Rule of thumb #1 in PR---Don't call a press conference to announce you are wearing a Toupee. Rule 2, no one goes on Face The Nation(al) list of cowards in this country who beg for forgiveness for just speaking their mind. Coulter, Limbaugh and Savage don't throw yourselves under the bus because there is no bus!

Next, Let's---Follow the money---the Imus Showbiz Shakedown Crew -Obama, Sharpton and Jackson --will makes Tony Soprano look like Mother Teresa. Get your checkbook Diplomacy out Imus. This whole thing is a hoax, like Tawana Brawley, and O.J., but I guess that's part of the Psychic slavery reparations debt white America owes.

Just "doing my job" has cost him his job--- Sponsors-American Express, Proctor & Gamble, Glaxco-Smith-Kline aAND GM paid in excess of $8.3 Million last year for the right to have their commercials aired on Imus’s show. Instead of a lineup of “ho’s,” we saw a smart and sweet group of young women . It was visceral.

Death of A Nation, IMUS Elitism Circling The Drain
Wait, I think I'll have a Grey Poupon--It's Dijon Vu, the same old mustard


FADE IN: I’m in the locker room of the Augusta National golf club, towel snapping with the guys I went to school with at Elliott House in Boston, the West Point of capitalism, Harvard... calling woman whores, and peppering the banter with fried chicken and watermelon jokes at Portorhouse's expense; the black caddy who works in the Pro Shop. Did I mention the The N word? We picked that one up from hip hop dawgs and hanging out with NBA players in Vegas last month.

This ain't no 1970's --- One of the most influential people who ever lived on TV--- besides my personal favorites, Eddie Haskell from Leave it to Beaver, and Stewie Griffen from Family Guy is--Archie Bunker and All in the Family, a television sitcom that broke all the rules — making fun of bigotry in all of its forms. Archie spewed hate toward the chinks, the spics, the jungle bunnies, the hebes... and the Polacks ... and Meathead (Rob Reiner) showed the utter absurdity of Archie’s views on African Americans, Hispanics.

So why are guys like Borat and Imus pissing us off? The Archie Bunker base in New York has either died or moved away . The real working-class New Yorker is likely to be black or Hispanic or Asian and quite often, born someplace else. The News is out of touch with their own demographic but some are "getting it". Imus plays a racists not for TV but for a a smaller audience share ---white male power.

"Media apartheid is over", says Ed Reif, "It's no longer black or white---we're plaid." Going all in (Shock Jocking) works every time except once---Lets talk about what really matters: Imus Is Out, Sanjaya Is Still In!

    The “Reverends” have been running from TV studio to TV studio proclaiming this the worst example of racism since Emmett Till, while steadfastly refusing to apologize for their slanders of the Duke lacrosse players and even denying that they had ever done any race-baiting in the first place.

    “Reverend” Jesse (Hymie Town) Jackson’s claim to Anderson Cooper that he was merely concerned for a poor black girl forced to dance “naked” in front of white boys for tuition money would be ridiculous if it weren’t so patently ludicrous. Is this the same Reverend Jackson who forgot to pay taxes on money he gave his mistress? Meanwhile, Reverend Al ”Tawana Brawley” Sharpton seems mystified that white people don’t take him seriously when he has never apologized for his role in the Brawley hoax.

    Spike “Jiggaboos and Wannabes” Lee has checked in to share some outrage. Even Robert Johnson, founder of BET, phoned in a CNN show to pile on, and got a little bent when somebody asked him why he wasn’t working toward toning down the rampant sexism and racism in the rap videos and movies that made his fortune. “Apples and oranges,” he sniffed. Wrong, Mr. Johnson. It is precisely your role in making “gansta’ culture mainstream that made Imus think it was okay to say those things in the first place. You too, Spike.

    My sense is that this incident will join the cheering-when-OJ-was- allowed-to-get-away-with murder tragedy as a symbol of how little we understand each other. If we’re going to survive as a country until race is no longer a distinction (and I long for the day when that happens) we have got to find some common ground.

    Imus has the right to ask and recieve forgiveness. Who here has made a rash comment without thought to what was being said or the feelings of others. Said and regreted at the instant it came off the end of our tongue. We have all made mistakes in our lives, maybe not in the public eye, but just as devistating to the person we offended. I offer that we might have even said something that offended someone and we never even knew how hurt that person was.

    Everyone deserves forgiveness, no matter what the offence. Forgiveness does not give permission. It does promote healing
