It's Time for Certain People to Shut Up
Boston Herald ^ | September 27, 2001 | Howie Carr

Posted on 09/28/2001 5:34:37 AM PDT by UbIwerks

Memo to the Rev. Jesse Jackson: Butt the bleep out.

What an impeccable sense of timing the reverend has - on Yom Kippur, America's most famous anti-Semite steps up and offers to appease the butchers of the city he once called ``Hymietown.''

Jesse, if you want to do something constructive, get a vasectomy. That'll save everyone a lot of trouble, including yourself. You want to make peace, Jesse - start with your wife, you horndog. And who called whom? Did the Taliban reach out to Jesse, or was it vice versa? The Taliban says Jesse made the first approach, and for once, I believe those savage bandits.

But the reverend isn't the only one who apparently hasn't gotten the memo about the '90s being over. It's time for all these pampered poodles, trust-funded college students and pro-Taliban graduates of writers' workshops to shut up and go away.

Bill Clinton needs to take himself on a nice long vacation. There's a new sheriff in town - one who doesn't sell pardons to terrorists for votes. Clinton's been going on TV saying he missed Osama bin Laden by an hour.

Well, it turns out, some reporter went to the head of U.S. forces in the Mideast when they fired the cruise missile at Afghanistan - the $2 million missile that, as George Bush put it so well, was fired at a $10 tent and hit a camel in the butt. The general in charge said it was a ``million-to-one shot.''

If Bill Clinton wants to brag about anything, let him take full credit for our marvelous immigration program.

Consider this Mohammed Abdi, who is being held without bail in Virginia. His home phone number turned up on a map in one of the Dulles hijackers' cars, next to the highlighted name ``Mohumed.''

Mohammed is from Somalia and arrived here in the Great Satan in 1993. He was naturalized and now has four children here, in addition to two back in the homeland. For the time being, Mr. Abdi is being held on charges of forging his landlord's name on checks sent to him by what is described in the Washington Post as an ``Arlington County rent-assistance program.''

In other words, this immigrant is on welfare. And he is an alleged welfare cheat. And he may be a terrorist.

I mean, how Clintonian is it?

Another guy who should shut the bleep up: Rep. James Patrick McGovern (D-Worcester). It's pathetic enough the way he rides on the coattails of a dead man, Joe Moakley. But now he's sending out letters begging for money while simultaneously ripping the commander-in-chief.

Hasn't Mullah McGovern learned anything from his quisling congressional colleagues, Osama bin Meehan and Richie ``the Sheik'' Neal?

I know, Mullah McGovern says the letters went out before the attack. But they were arriving in the homes of his appalled constituents as late as last Saturday, and you can't blame everything on the Post Office. Here he is, ripping the Bush administration.

``They've embarked on a foreign policy,'' he snivels, ``more hostility toward Cuba, more Blackhawk helicopters to the repressive Colombian military . . .''

I'm tired of Bill Maher, the reputed ``comedian'' now groveling to save his sorry career after slurring the military as cowards. I've also had about enough of Geraldo Rivera, looking for some new rear ends to kiss, gushing about how proud he is to have George Bush as his president.

And where exactly does the Speaker of the Mass. House, Tom Finneran, get off? He never wanted the people to have an income-tax cut even though it was promised to us back in 1989, when the massive tax hikes were peddled as a ``temporary'' measure. He lied about that, and he fought tooth-and-nail against the tax cut when it was put on the ballot last year.

It passed 59-41. That's a landslide.

But now Tom Finneran wants to stop the next tax cut, because we can't ``afford'' it. Nobody asked us if we could ``afford'' a tax increase back in 1989.

Hey Mistah Speakah, shut up and sit down. Time out. And Jesse Jackson, that goes double for you.

From the time he smeared blood on himself and said Martin Luther King, Jr., died in his arms to the present, Jackson has never stopped his obnoxious and destructive grandstanding.

We're at war with Osima Bin Laden and he wanted to conduct his counter foreign policy over there? The guy is real trouble.

Howie tells it like it is. I wonder if the people in Mass. are listening.

Well, then, they should have arranged a cut-out to transfer the money without a direct meeting.

(A cheap shot, but after eeing those two sentences juxtaposed like that, I simply could not resist....)

Ol' Jesse many not get much milage out of this. So far, the Taliban has been playing games with the U.S. Jesse just looks like the latest game piece.

There was a fantastic political cartoon in the Chicago SunTimes today. It was a picture of W. and Cheney at the helm of an airplane and Jesse busted through the cockpit door and W asked "Who invited him?"

We should shove Jesse & Al on a one way first class air fare to Kabul. In order words kick the bums out and don't let them back in. This country would be so grateful to see those whiners gone... for good.

I thought this story to be apocryphal. Did it actually hit a camel in the butt?

There's a new sheriff in town - one who doesn't sell pardons to terrorists for votes.

IMHO, the highlight of an excellent piece. Right on.

Isn't free speech, no matter how offensive to some, one of the things we are defending?

I'll volunteer to be the first to remind them. Anyone have JJ's and X42's e-mail address to send this MUST READ article?

Jesse said that the Taliban invited him to come over. The Taliban said that they did not. I wonder who we should believe?. Hmmmm. I think I will go with the Taliban.

Yes, there is free speech. There is also appropriate speech. We are now on a war footing. Those who are against the murderers are necessarily in line behind our Commander-in-Chief. Why is this unity in the face of atrocity so hard to grasp ? IN any case, we are also free to respond to these jerks with free speech of our own. Right on Howie.
