Imus, Insults and Ignorance

Aug 17, 2007
"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never harm me."

Look, let's get things into perspective, shall we?

There's hate and then there's hate. There's simple ignorance which slips out of every human being at times, and then there is deliberate, deadly, strategic hate. The first was perpetrated by a person called Imus, the second was, is and shall be perpetrated by the Bush adminstration and their conscience-less arrogance.

Imus made some stupid insults. He's been on the air 30 years and said some stupid things. They've been recorded.

He has made some racial slurs. So have honorable people like Jesse Jackson (his hate speech about Jews), Al Sharpton (his recent trip to defend a black girl who had supposedly been raped by white boys... turns out she was lying).

Big deal.

If a tape recorder were running several hours a day with everything you or I say, believe me, there would be plenty for everyone you know to howl about.

That's being human. That's you, me and every other person, regardless of race, color, creed or origin. We are ignorant, shallow and thoughtless at times, and other times we are wise, deep and thoughtful. Got it?

OK, now let's go on to deliberate hate.

The Bush adminstration deliberately lies, kills, maims simply because it wants to, and for no other good reason (the other "reasons" stated have all been shown to be false). It appoints people with no competence and makes them wealthy and powerful. It gives influence, power and no-bid contracts to its friends. Because it wants to. It It spins its own lies to the point where maybe it can't tell itself when it is lying and believes it's own spew.

It breaks laws and commits acts of terror (invasion of privacy, abuse of national funds and resources and lies of security) against its own citizens. It mentally and financially poisons its own people.

It won't speak with its enemy, which is everyone who isn't "with it." Remember, "You are either with us or you are with the terrorists?," George Bush's famous statement. By "us," he meant "me," i.e. George W. Bush.

It creates anger, distrust and division among all the countries and peoples in the world. And it doesn't care. It does it because it wants to.

So be an intelligent citizen and get off Imus (otherwise an extremely caring and thoughtful person) and all this other junk media and back onto where the real harm is being done.

Not where a few ignorant insults are thrown around, but where the real harm -- murder, theft, lies and hatred -- is being done every second of every day for seven long years; by that "it" called the Bush Adminstration. "It" should be fired and taken off the air.
