Where's the Outrage Now?

Don Imus lost his job for calling the Rutgers women's basketball team a very ugly name. Now we have Malik Shabazz calling Michelle Malkin, substituting for Bill O'Reilly last night, a prostitute to her face essentially, just for asking if he was going to apologize to the three Duke lacrosse players for declaring them guilty. Check out the video at Hot Air.

Shabazz called Michelle a political whore, slumming for chauvinistic white males. Where's the outrage now? This is particularly disgusting when he claims he's a "protector of women."

Michelle's reaction?

Yup, I've heard it all before. Comes with the territory when you're an uppity brown woman who strays from the liberal plantation, you know.

Malik Shabazz is Farrakhan-II
via Michelle Malkin:
Shabazz defended Osama bin Laden, blamed President Bush for the 9-11 attacks, called our founding fathers "snakes" and likened them to terrorists, lambasted Catholicism, Christians, and Jews, and repeated his avaricious call for societal reparations to blacks. This is old hat for Shabazz, who rose to power under ex-Nation of Islam exile Khalid Muhamad. Among Shabazz's resume highlights: stoking the recent Cincinnati race riots; organizing a legal support group for O.J. Simpson; leading a boycott of a D.C.-based Korean grocery store that was later firebombed; urging followers in Maryland to "crush" any "straw-chewin', tobacco-chewin' racist redneck" that assaults blacks; and threatening to kill whites and police officers if they interfered with his "Million Youth March" two years ago in New York.

"The only solution any time there is a funeral in the black community is a funeral in the police community," Shabazz told the marchers at the time.

Shabazz doesn't just lynch whites, he also smears white victims, eg. 'Jennifer Ross Murder'

A Georgia man gave the middle finger to a judge who sentenced him to life in prison plus 40 years for the shooting death of a Savannah debutante during a botched robbery.

Michael Thorpe, 26, gestured and shouted "F--- democracy!" as deputies led him Saturday from the courtroom where Chatham County Superior Court Judge Penny Haas Freeseman sentenced him for shooting Jennifer Ross on Christmas Eve 2005

I actually watched that interview last night and had a really unpleasant experience. They played a clip of Shabazz whipping up the Black Panther lynch mob and screaming "guilty" over and over. Then Shabazz responded to the clip by saying, "I never said they were guilty of rape."

It was unpleasant because I was drinking chocolate milk at the time and I laughed so hard the milk came out my nose.

I guess Shabazz, when they we scraeming "guilty", meant they were guilty of being rich and white. I think the leftists consider that a felony...

Well, no, it doesn't, but it is my belief that you can say whatever you want regardless of whether you have a radio or TV show (see First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States for more info). But what you say can effect a) your employment situation, or b) future invitations to speak. Such is life in the marketplace of ideas.

My comment is that Kim's question of "Where's the Outrage Now?" seems to indicate that she thinks Shabazz should be given the same treatment as Imus. There are, as I suggested, some interesting implications to such a stance.

Althor:

There are "nappy haired hos", and then there are "nappy haired hos", and, of course, poster child for changing the rape shield laws, Duke fiasco accuser, Crystal Gail Mangum (she chews naive affluent white boys up - or at least part of them - and then spits them out, and hangs them out to dry???), is definitely a "nappy haired ho" in her own right (and more accurately so than some)!

But for my money, the poster child for the "Will The Real 'Nappy Headed Ho' Please Stand Up" title, should go to odious New Black Panther leader Malik Shabazz, who had the "black gallantry" (which he so well represents) of calling Michelle Malkin a "political whore" to her face on yesterday's Factor, which she was Guest-Hosting.

I can just picture the split screen with Michelle on one side, and the despicable Malik Shabazz on the other, as I saw it yesterday on The Factor, and the announcer say: "Will The Real 'Nappy Headed Ho' Please Stand Up"... to the only "nappy haired ho" there, on the program!!!

Shabazz is a character, but is mainly popular on the loony left of the Black community. Dekalb county is almost all liberal, and about 50%-60% Black. When Cynthia McKinney campaigned, the NBPP was her "security" force. After Hank Johnson beat her, members of the NBPP were caught on cameral yelling slurs and insults at reporters. Even the liberal Black members of the community thought McKinney and her need for it to be 1966 instead of 2006 were getting old.

Don Imus lost his job for calling the Rutgers women's basketball team a very ugly name....Shabazz called Michelle a political whore, slumming for chauvinistic white males. Where's the outrage now?

Seems to me a call for equivalent outrage, thus "she thinks Shabazz should be given the same treatment as Imus."

The suggestion is that if we recognize the double-standard, that we might voice our outrage, if one is so inclined. If you're not, just continue in your hypocrisy.

I'm not so inclined, but it's not hypocritical as I don't give a shit what Imus said and I don't give a shit what Shabazz said. Don't watch FOX. Don't listen to CBS radio. Don't care.

At any rate, why don't you just STFU?

For many reasons, not least of which is that I seem to annoy you by not doing so.

There's one thing that hasn't been mentioned in ALL of this and that's where did the terminology of "nappy headed hoes" really come from.
Nappy headed of course has been around for ages, but here's the funny part. "Hoes" came from black hip hop culture. And who is the main consumer of hip hop and rap artist? It ain't blacks. It's white males between 13 and 18. They're the largest demographic in music. (#2 is 35 year old divorced women) The music industry knows this, so they market urban language created by black culture to these kids to make themselves money. Ironic huh. They actually did it to themselves, and then let a white guy take the fall for saying what they've marketed to white guys.

One good thing about all of this is that the MSM is (shockingly) starting to highlight Sharpton & Jackson's past racist comments. I read at newsbusters that ABC Good Morning America had a whole segment on Sharpton's past. And they had one of the guys falsely accused re: the Tawana Brawley sham. With Sharpton leading the charges. And it's great letting people see which party Sharpton belongs to as people are reminded of his presidential campaign.

I'm surprised at you. You've taken a question asked by Kim and expanded your own opinion on what you think she meant. Personally I see the question as just "where is the outrage?", nothing more, nothing less. Simply put where is all the fussing and panting over the statement Shabazz made? No call for action just a question. The way some of you are commenting it's as if you don't have a problem with what he said, merely on what network he said it.

That way we can all go watch MSNBC and all their up-the-wall leftist hate-mongering, or better still watch Wolf "Wormtongue" Blitzer and "Woe Be Unto Us In Iraq" naysaying CNN, guaranteed to be "The Most Trusted Name In Anti-American Propaganda" (which they call "The Most Trusted Name in News" - Right, by the Jihadists!), like those Orwell 1984 automatons in the U-Tube Obama commercial. Again, great suggestion! Or perhaps we should realize like the Borg that "all resistance is futile" and simply go watch Sanyaya and American Idol, while the world goes to hell in a handbasket (by the way, have they finally managed to kick awful Sanyaya out? He seems to be the genetical engineering creation of a Mad Scientist who mixed the genes of Michael Jackson and Menudo! As Michael would say, while holding to his diminutive crotch: "Uuuuuhhh!!!" ).

Fox News may have taken their "Fair and Balanced" gig a bit too far (everyone knows they are right-wing conservatives) with that excrement of a human being (Hey, at least his skin color matches)
Malik Shabazz, but if we boycott Fox, where else will conservatives find a venue to voice their views (the only other "View" on the leftist mainstream media, is Rosie's on ABC!) or find unbiased information in the Democratic-defeatist, Jihadist civil rights-loving, alternate lifestyles godless-secularist, far-left leaning, internationalist-socialist, Marxist-Proletarian sympathizing, open-borders-illegal immigration-supporting, Iraq war-naysaying, anti-war, Bush-bashing, American-hating, economy
-pessimistic, pro tax-raising, NAMBLA-supporting, Global Warming-alarmist, rest of the liberal media???

No thanks! I'm sure that asshole Shabazz will never again be given any air time on Fox (though it is very possible then that MSNBC may even employ him as they did poor, old Imus), but I will keep getting my news on Fox!

I know that at times their ratings-driven obsession gets in the way of their better judgement (tell me about it! When for over a year we had to endure 24/7 coverage of Natalee Holloway and her mother's clowns in Aruba, while the world went to hell in a handbasket, and the insidious Democrats, who for the most part could have given a rat's ass about Natalee and her media-ravenous mother, quietly made their way to their November victories, while the rest of Middle-America sat stupefied every night in front of their TV screens, drooling over Natalee's mother Beth's Banshee wails!!!), but they are "our only hope Obi-Wan", as Leia would have say!

Not to sound heartless, Chip, but there has to be a standard of behavior separate from feelings. It's not to be mean, it's just impossible for practical reasons to define things on how they are received, if they hurt someone's feelings or not.

There's hurting on purpose (or trying) and there is hurting by accident. And then there is using your own hurt to control other people. They aren't responsible for the sore spots and tenderness of someone they don't know. They can't be. And they shouldn't have to let other people control them through guilt.

It's unhealthy.

I have my standards about what is mean and what isn't. If I hurt someone's feelings I'll consider that I may have been wrong, but I will also consider that I wasn't wrong and that I'm not responsible for what goes on inside that person.

I once responded to someone with the remark that what she'd said about child development was "Bull". I promise you I did not say "sh*t". And the lady had a meltdown. It wasn't even a personal criticism from me, I simply disagreed with her in a no nonsense forthright manner. That was a case where I concluded that her hurt feelings were her own responsibility. I'm confident that I know why they were hurt, but it was what she had done to herself and no reason that I had to play her game just so she'd feel good.

A person can tear themselves up trying to be responsible for other people's feelings. It's not healthy.

And of course it's hyperbolic to state that a person can be as hurt by words as if they were shot with a gun.

And then there is the blowback. Or should we call it an example ofthe law of unintended consequences:

Re the LAT:

They came by the hundreds that hot August day in tiny Johnson City, Tenn., gathering on an asphalt parking lot to meet Rep. Harold E. Ford Jr. It was not just that he might become the state's first black senator. More than that, even in Republican eastern Tennessee, the Democratic congressman was a celebrity -- a regular guest on Don Imus' radio show.

And today, with Imus' career in tatters, the fate of the controversial shock jock is stirring quiet but heartfelt concern in an unlikely quarter: among Democratic politicians.

That's because, over the years, Democrats such as Ford came to count on Imus for the kind of sympathetic treatment that Republicans got from Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity. Equally important, Imus gave Democrats a pipeline to a crucial voting bloc that was perennially hard for them to reach: politically independent white men.

With Imus' show canceled indefinitely because of his remarks about the Rutgers University women's basketball team, some Democratic strategists are worried about how to fill the void. For a national radio audience of white men, Democrats see few if any alternatives.

Every democrat, with any aspirations to elected office begged for an "audience" with Imus and access to his airtime, Harold E. Ford Jr, Kerry (numerous times in 2003), Chris Dodd, Barack Obama, etc were lined-up.

The only thing left is the shambles that is air america.

======================

Exactly!!!

Shabazz is a fool, but that's the only type of people they bring on to debate. Fox never brings on people who really know their stuff.

Meanwhile, Malkin was sarcastic from the get-go, even tho' Shabazz was agreeing, for the most part. However, all she wanted was for him to condemn Rap/Hip Hop, Jesse Jackson and/or Al Sharpton. I bet he thought he was there to talk about Imus.

Meanwhile, Malkin is interjecting sarcasm like, "It's all whitey's fault," which was *NOT* what he had been saying.

Later Malkin interjected more sarcasm: "So it's all George Washington's fault," when he hadn't mentioned Washington. Then, the next night, she made fun of him for blaming George Washinton.

This was not an interview. this was an attack from start to finish.

To repeat, tho': Shabazz is an idiot. However, he was not treated with any respect whatsoever.

Oh for the love of Pete.

Didn't respect him? She asked him for one thing, to apologize for proclaiming the Lacross players "Guilty, guilty, guilty." He said no, because they were white and white men have been victimizing black women forever.

He clearly was blaming past generations of white men and clearly cared not at all about the innocence of these particular white men. So why not George Washington?

I happen to agree with Malkin that this incident has been extremely harmful to real victims of real rape. By artifically and *blatantly* propping the accuser (who most certainly *is* in the need of help) and then by clearly claiming that actually being raped is not nearly as important as convicting white men, women who are raped are going to have a harder time. It will be in the mind of people that not even her supporters believe it.

That makes me angry too.

I don't think that many people think that the Black Panthers are representative of most liberals but we did see this demand for a guilty verdict all across the board, not just from this group. And then, Barney refers to the guy as, "someone from the black community" and complains that Malkin didn't respect him.

So Aunty, should he be treated like a "whack job" or as a respected member of the black community?

=====================

Maybe I don't have to confer with anyone to have an opinion. I form my own, thank you.

Why was Shabazz being hectored (and that's the only verb that fits) by Malkin about the Duke case when he was there to talk about Imus, supposedly?

I maintain my belief that the whole idea was to make Shabazz to look foolish, which I also do not think is a difficult thing to do.

Again, I ask: Why does Fox rarely, if ever, have people on who actually know their topic and know how to debate? If asked this question I would answer, "Because they have an agenda."

Most fools can see that.

With all my love,
Aunty Em

WIZBANG EDITORS:

Is the posting by Jack at 12:04 pm the kind of thing you really want on your blog?

It's no more offensive as some of the attacks you've made on other commenters here. And they, and YOU, are still here.

Aunty Em Ericann:

Shabazz is a fool, but that's the only type of people they bring on to debate. Fox never brings on people who really know their stuff.

Guess you haven't spent too much time watching the program or you have an acute case of Faux Derangement Syndrome.

Maybe you could give us an idea of who you think could take Shabazz' place in a debate on the same subject.

Wait... hold on a hot second...

I get!! You're right Aunty Em, they "only type of people they bring on to debate" are those that don't know their "stuff."

It explains completely why Kerry and his wife Taaahrassa were on the show pimpin' their just released book on the environment.

Meanwhile, Malkin is interjecting sarcasm like, "It's all whitey's fault," which was *NOT* what he had been saying.

I don't know, I always thought George Washington was a "Whitey," and Shabazz agreed that Apple Tree George was the root of the problem.

Again, I ask: Why does Fox rarely, if ever, have people on who actually know their topic and know how to debate? If asked this question I would answer, "Because they have an agenda."

First of all, everyone "has an agenda." And in your case it has led you to make ludicrous statements about Fox never having anyone on air that "actually know their topic."

Rev. Sharpton has been a guest on O'Reilly and other Fox shows, is it your contention he doesn't knwo anything about the topic of race relations?

Do you truly believe all the authors that appear on the morning show don't know the topic they have spent months or years researching for their books?

Joe Cheshire, the lawyer for the Duke players was a guest on H&C are you THAT misguided to think HE didn't know the topic well enough to speak on it?

Mia Farrow in her role as U.N. Goodwill ambassador was a guest after returning from the Sudan and spoke about the crisis in Darfur. Was she talking out of her ass and didn't know a damn thing about to topic?

The list is endless "Aunty Em" and most people would agree your misguided thoughts on the matter allow your "agenda" to shine thru very clearly.

And even, "most fools can see that," but it's painfully obvious you're a special breed of fool.

Oh... and posted "with all my love."

Speaking of "where's the outrage," why is it not permissible to say "nappy headed ho's but one can spend millions of dollars producing a movie with the title "Nappily Ever After?"

Politically Incorrect Joke ... (Below threshold)
Jack:

Politically Incorrect Joke of the Day

A white kid was studying about Africa in school. When he was going over his homework about the subject, he came across the name of a country in Africa that really upset him. He went to his dad and asked: "Dad how do you say this word?" and he spelled: "N-I-G-E-R-I-A" not daring to pronounce it. The father looked at the word and said: "That son, is Nigeria." The shocked boy said: "But, but... isn't that the 'N' word they say in school we are never, ever, ever, supposed to say?" The father smiled and said, no son, the word that is politically incorrect to say is "nigger. "But dad, 'Nigeria' and the 'N' word look so much alike...shouldn't they have called that country something else?" the boy remarked still clinging in horror to the political correct mind-set which he had been taught in school. "Not really son", said the father. "Why not?" asked the boy.
"Well," replied the dad, "because the reason why it is called 'Nigeria" is because it is one of the places from where 'niggers' came from" to which then he added musing "though I have always wondered why they don't spell it properly with two 'N's: 'Niggeria'?"

Marc-your comments... (Below threshold)
slingshot:

Marc-

your comments as to postings I have made towards other people is completely unsupportable and untrue. Jack's posting, to my eyes at least, was simply a racist statement.

Jack:

I bow before thee in Dhimmitude, Oh Slingshot! Watchdog and Master of all political correctness at this thread!!!

But to paraphrase the immortal Shakespeare: "A Rose by any other name..." In like manner: "A Rutgers 'nappy haired ho' by any other name....would be as 'nappy haired' (unless she starts using a lot of relaxanr?)." LMAO!

Chris Rock says that there are black people and then there are "niggers" in his comedy routine, and no one cries bloody murder about it, not even "Ghetto leech" Al Sharpton! So, lighten up a bit with all you censorship-mongering, don't take yourselves too seriously, and stop all the political correct paranoia. PUT THINGS IN CONTEXT!A JOKE IS A JOKE! And if you find it offensive, stop using all those effeminate women's lotions on your "ultra-sensitive" sappy milky white skin and grow some manly thick hide for a change!

Althor:

Well, at least Jack ended this thread with a "bang" rather than it ending with Slingshot's politically correct racially over-sensitive
"whimpers"! How appropriate! After all, this is "Wizbang" not "Wizwhine"!!!

LMAO!
