It's called the freedom of speech
Ya’ know, it’s really getting on my nerves listening to program hosts and talking heads pooh-pooh and whine about those not speaking in warm, flowery speech. Yesterday I heard a talking head on FoxNews whining about Newt Gingrich saying, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd should be in jail. Typically, I watch Fox Business Channel, but for some reason FBN was having issues, in my area at least.
So there I was, with FoxNews on the screen not five full minutes, when this talking head started to whine and distort her face because Newt was…well…Newt was Newt – and Newt doesn’t do kiss-kiss, nice-nice, nor does he suffer fools well. What I couldn’t understand is what part of Newt’s statement was so offensive – they do belong in jail for their parts in the housing market, countrywide mortgage scam. The talking head I reference dated Anthony Weiner for goodness sake, I didn’t hear or see her voicing objections over his wild and over-the-top screeds. This wasn’t the first time she had expressed objections to an accurate comment a person made – each time I’ve witnessed her make such objections, it has been directed at a conservative.
People like her need to wake up and smell the coffee of the real world. And, they need too be honest, because I don’t hear them whining and pooh-poohing when liberals go over the top. I’ve seen the person I’m referring to on numerous different shows and quite frankly she’s just annoying.
Hank William, Jr. made a valid observation on Fox and Friends, and a person would have thought he dropped his draws and went to the bathroom on the set. C’mon already. What about the English language bothers them. Are we really to believe they actually believe the nice-nice speech they blabber about and feign insult over, or is it just when a conservative says it.
This is America, illegal aliens are permitted to burn our flag, Muslims are permitted to have their teaching in taxpayer funded public schools, when American children aren’t permitted to give thanks for their food – and these people are telling me Hank Williams, Jr. making a valid and some may argue a true statement is so bad. The apoplectic, knee-jerk, hysteria these people display is appalling, and they might want to rethink such offensive pretentiousness.
The people on Fox and Friends aren’t saints, so why behave like tin angels and turn on Hank. In the final analysis Hank has had the last word and has laughed all the way to the bank, after ESPN and Monday Night Football got their pink panties in a knot. I debated the president of the Philadelphia NAACP on a Sunday morning Philadelphia television show a few days after ESPN had fired Rush Limbaugh. One year after that interview, the same NAACP president had changed his tune and was ostensibly saying the same thing I had said when we debated.
Liberals and pretentious goody two-shoes, need to get over themselves and their duplicitous double standards. One day, they will wake up and realize socially engineering people as to what to think and say doesn’t work. I know that probably bothers them, but for goodness sake whoever said the truth wasn’t blunt force trauma at times. Many of the cable news networks are mini-Peyton Places. They need to clean up their own houses before they start whining about people speaking the language of America. Who are they to tell us what to say? I submit they’ve been in a bubble to long, they need to come out and get a bit of oxygen. Because they obviously have lost sight of the fact that we are watching them and it might be time they start realizing we may not be to impressed with their acts.
