Don Imus, Rosie O'Donnell, Nappy Headed Hoes, And Catholic Bashers
Hmmm..... I think I know what The Caveman's getting at

WARNING! Exceedingly harsh language alert.

As we all know by now, Don Imus has just been (rightly) slam dunked for is unChristian and ungentlemanly comments towards the Rutgers University womens basketball team. The jerk got what he deserved.

And of course I have to ask... where was the outrage when known Catholic-basher and grand apologist for Iran, Rosie O'Donnell, when she stated (as she squinted her eyes) "The fact is that it's news all over the world. That you know, you can imagine in China it's like: 'Ching chong, ching chong, ching chong, chong, chong, chong". Followed by uproarious laughter from her oh, so progressive audience.

Funny stuff, huh? But then again, O'Donnell is the Poster Thing for everything liberal, so she get's a pass.

Anyhow, I like what the Catholic League just released. But be forewarned, the language, even though censored, is still pretty rough.


Catholic League president Bill Donohue commented today on the way Catholic bashers are treated as compared to Don Imus:

“Two years ago, Penn Jillette (of the comedy team Penn and Teller) went on Showtime calling Mother Teresa ‘Mother F—king Teresa’ and called the nuns who worked with her ‘f—king c—ts.’ Showtime is owned by Viacom and that is why I wrote to its chief, Sumner Redstone, to register a complaint. He wrote back extolling the merits of ‘artistic freedom’ and ‘tolerance.’ Last year, on Viacom-owned CBS radio, Jillette said Mother Teresa ‘had this weird kink that I think was sexual,’ compared the saintly nun to Charles Manson and said she ‘got her [sexual] kicks watching people suffer and die.’ Again, nothing was done about this.

“In 2005, Bill Maher went on HBO at the time of the death of Pope John Paul II and said, ‘For those who could not make the funeral, the Vatican has asked that in lieu of flowers, just stop touching your d—k.’ He also said that the whole story of Jesus, the Virgin Mary and the Resurrection was ‘grafted from paganism’; he ended by mocking the death of the pope and the upcoming conclave. The letter I received from HBO said that ‘it’s a free country, and people are free to say silly things—even on HBO.’

“Right before Easter, the Catholic League protested the chocolate Jesus with his genitals exposed that was to be shown in the art gallery of the Roger Smith Hotel in midtown Manhattan (located on street level, the public was invited to eat him). Air America radio co-host Cenk Uygur, writing on ‘The Huffington Post,’ said, ‘So is the argument that Jesus didn’t have a d—k? Or were people offended because it was too big? Too Small? Too immaculate? Not immaculate enough?’ Regarding Imus’s remark, Uygur called it ‘derogatory and insulting.’

“Similarly, Joan Walsh on said the chocolate Jesus was not ‘a big deal,’ and advised people not to go see it if they didn’t like it. She has now called on Imus to be fired. Even New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg said ‘don’t pay any attention’ to the chocolate Jesus, but he now finds it necessary to brand Imus’ comments ‘repugnant.’

“In other words, Catholic bashing is humorous and an exercise in liberty. Racism is awful. Bigotry, then, is neither good nor bad—it just depends who the target is.”

True, true Cavey. But, rejoice in the slander, for we are the servants of Him whom they hated first.

But onto more serious matters: What are they going to do with my beloved Ho-Hos?"

As Pat Buchanan said, you can't cut the hypocrisy with a chainsaw.

Donohue is talking as though this
Imus thing is about the networks disapproving and firing Imus but not firing Catholic bashers. He is incorrect. The sponsers "fired" so to speak the networks first... and only then did the networks fire Imus. Did the sponsors fire the networks out of morality or out of fear of Sharpton boycotting their products with 10% of the population. I don't know. But Donahue (with 25% of the population...Catholics) is writing to the wrong people....I hope he's not on salary. The Imus thing showed that the sponsors are at the top of the chain....not the network execs but if Donohue is in this pressure business all these years and didn't know that all along, wherefore this vocation of his. Donohue needs to write to GM, Sprint, Staples etc. The networks will listen to the sponsors not to Donohue. Catholicism would be better off with someone cool and committed and who writes to the right people than with Donahue whose Irish temper some of us Irish have had it is so in the box, that opposition can manipulate it and predict it and use it. That's why he's constantly invited on TV....he's entertainment as his head gets redder and redder. Where are the William F. Buckley Jr.'s of the future....the cool, acidic, highly vocabularied Catholics who can hit the enemy without needing the attendant Irish temper....and Buckley was Irish. Sooner or later Donohue with his temper is going to have an Imus moment verbally and we'll be disgraced yet once again in public. Mel Gibson's recent f#%@ to a heckler regarding his Mayan movie is a forewarning for us to get Donohue on some Melavil or Prozac once in the morning with his Starbucks.
