Yeah, that's a real knee slapper. You know what I see when she says that? I see a pissed off black woman retaliating in a flash of anger to
something a white man said. Not only did he say he hopes the first American black president fails (he was clearly talking Obama's Marxist policies),
he said it on NATIONAL talk radio! HOW DARE HE!! (sarcasm off)
1.) Yes, it is a knee slapper. The audience laughed hysterically- some shocked, others delighted, but all still laughing. Personally i found it
hysterical. Have you ever
watched a roast of a famous person?
2.) Why does skin color have anything to do with it? You are making race an issue, nobody else.
3.) I agree with you. How dare Rush Limbaugh ask for the defeat of Barack Obama. Obama is trying to fix the mess created by 8 years of deregulation
by the Bush administration. And you call it marxist.
The typical response would be po-tate-o po-tot-o
but since you're talking about different things all together
i guess it'd be po-tate-o mush-room
This thread has to do with a no-talent comedian at a government roast pushing the envelope. She went way too far when she started comparing
Limbaugh to the 20th 9/11 hijacker. And I'm not the only one that agrees:
Wow. you have no sense of humor...i bet you're a riot at parties :|
That aside, can you explain to us the difference between Rush Limbaugh making fun of black people:
I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery
built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after
ou know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed.
Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?
Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I
The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.
When talking about black people's opinions:
They’re 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?
Take that bone out of your nose and call me back(to a black female caller).
Or about women
Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream
ya know, i could literally go on all day. But i posted those to make these points:
1.) You are reacting to a comedian's act in such a temper-tantrum style that it's sad. If wanda sykes doesn't mean anything - then why are you
loosing sleep over what she said.
2.) I laid out Rush Limbaugh quotes above to draw a very distinct line. #1 Rush isn't a comedian, and his radio show isn't variety hour. His
'pearls of wisdom' are passed through the 'institute for advanced conservative studies' so if these snippets of racism and sexism are curriculum
for conservative studies, then yes, i agree with Wanda Sykes, regardless if she's joking or being serious.
3.) There is a reason Rush Limbaugh isn't speaking out against Wanda Sykes. He actually learned his lesson. Like when he was a white guy getting
away with a severe addiction to prescription drugs (see my avatar) and using his radio show to say "people like that should be arrested and off the
streets" He realizes that he's said exponentially worse things about black people and women, than what Wanda Sykes just said about him.
If you savior, Rush Limbaugh, can see that and shut up - why can't his rush babies follow suit?
I thought Rush babies were supposed to be intellectually superior and all powerful?
