CBS13 Sacramento, CA is trying to claim Rush Limbaugh's parity of the LA Times "Magic Negro" comment is racist. Go there and free them poll. It's on the right hand sidebar. It asks:
Is Rush Limbaugh's "Barack The Magic Negro" song racist?
You can also watch their story on this at their website. It's at the top of the page.
Thank you. I’ve voted.
One more try. Do you think that Rush might possibly want the video pulled BECAUSE HE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT? If someone started a viscious internet smear on YOU, bet you wouldn't find it quite so hilarious.
finally came up. lol. Bet their catchin hell.
If you slow the video down you can see a few things.
1) It was made on a Mac.
2) Judging from the music list in itunes, the perp likes Rap, in particular some artist named Big Mike
....magical negro (sometimes called the mystical negro, magic negro, or our Magical African-American Friend) is a stock character who appears in fiction of a variety of media. The word "negro", now considered archaic and offensive, is used intentionally to emphasize the belief that the archetype is a racist throwback, an update of the "Sambo" stereotype. The term was popularized by Spike Lee, who dismissed the archetype of the "super-duper magical negro" in 2001 while discussing films with students at Washington State University and at Yale University.
Now I’m ROTF...Are Chris Burrous, Lisa Gonzales and Jeff James of KOVR Channel 13 Sacramento morons who are threatening racial harmony?....98%yes 2%no.
I guess they weren’t expecting the results they got - not only are the “NO’s” clobbering the “YES’s,” but their comments are all bashing the station for even doing this. They haven’t posted my comment yet but I blasted them for using the YouTube video. And of course, I ended with “phony TANG Memos and now this?” I couldn’t resist.
I can’t get the video or the comments section to open.
I did vote though and the total is 3% yes and 97% no. I voted no.
They’ve undersestimated the power of Rush’s audience.
My guess is they’re running for cover. I’m sure they got a “head’s up” on the original video from someone at KOS or DU, didn’t bother to check either the source or the facts, and thought “Oh boy! We’re gonna be the little station that could and take Rush down!”
Think again morons. This is precisely what he said you’d do! Once again - liberal media - “fact checking is for idiots” - strikes again.
I’m willing to bet the whole thing comes down before 5:00 and they never mention it again. Too bad they don’t have a call-in show.
Do we all get the feeling that the current results aren’t exactly what these race-bating moonbats had in mind? Wonder if they’re going to broadcast the results - or issue an apology to Rush?
I’m thinking if they do, it’s one of the great flying-pig moments.
Tell the liberals at CBS 13 in Sacramento to get it RIGHT and stop attacking Rush, when they should be attacking the leftwing racists at the LA Times....
Don’t feel guilty, the DU is hitting it, too.
KOVR13 is a Viacom owned station. Interestingly, it was previously a Sinclair station. When ownership changed, so did their newscasters.
I can’t stand to listen to the shrill female voices of their reporterettes/newsreaders. Maybe it’s just my hearing loss frequency range, but the more they try to sensationalize a story, the more shrill the sound.
They’d probably be great as an opening act for any Hillary appearances. Warm up the audience so Shillary’s voice wouldn’t be so irritating.
I expect these three clowns may not want to show up for work tomorrow. What a wipe-out! 98% No, 2% Yes.
