    Looks like Imus is gonna take it in the shorts again over a remark he made about everyopne's favorite DB-Adam Jones.

    Let's see if Mr. Imus learned the most important lesson from his last brush against the racial extortion coalition, that being: groveling will not save you.

    Non-whites are the only people whom the media grants endless "free to act as stupid as you want" cards.

    Hence idiotic tools like Al Sharpton may be considered a wacko by most but are still afforded some measure of credibility by the mainstream media, but Imus isn't.

    Not that Imus is all that witty or intelligent, but there's the double standard again, with whites as usual expected to turn the other cheek because no one else is big enough to do so.

    Sad, but there it is.

    This witch hunt is out of control. He is a shock jock he is supposed to say this. I used to like his show when I listened to it years ago on WNBC/WFAN. He isn't a serious politician. If he gets fired from WABC what is left? WBLK?.... [​IMG] Edited by: white is right

    Grovelin' Imus


    Don Imus is in trouble again for violating political correctness. His sports announcer was discussing the lengthy arrest record of Pacman Jones, and Imus asked "What color is he?" When told that Jones is black, he replied "There you go. Now we know." Imus now claims that he was trying to say that Jones is being picked on because he's black.
    <BLOCKQUOTE>


    Just months after returning to the airwaves with a pledge to mend the wounds caused by his racist and sexist comment about a women's basketball team, Don Imus is again drawing fire for injecting race into his radio show.


    During an on-air conversation Monday about the arrests of suspended Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam Jones, Imus asked, "What color is he?"


    Told by sports announcer Warner Wolf that Jones, who used to be nicknamed Pacman, is "African-American," Imus responded: "There you go. Now we know."


    Later Monday, Imus responded to criticism of his comments, saying he had been misunderstood.


    "I meant that he was being picked on because he's black," Imus said in a statement released by his spokesman.</BLOCKQUOTE>


    Yeah, sure ya did, Imus. Sure ya did.


    You know, Don, medical technology has come a long way in the past few years. Why don't you inquire about the possibility of a spine implant?

    This is just a distraction. The House just passes a $162 billion war spending bill. I'm learning to check any Congressional news every time the media tries to hype something stupid.

    $162 billion to fight and die for the Zionists and alienate the rest of the world in the process. It sure puts some trivial b.s. about a groveling white into perspective.

    This latest "incident" represents a perfect example of the madness that is Don King's America. Here we have a typically puerile, no-talent "celebrity" making a stupid but relatively innocuous comment about a savage cretin who would be imprisoned for life in any just society. Despite inventing a ridiculous, groveling excuse that he actually meant to defend the lifelong thug Jones, Imus will still be attacked and eventually lose his job. When will these whites who come under fire for saying something politically incorrect understand that their apologies will not help them at all? They will still be lambasted in the media. They will still lose their jobs.

    Stand up for yourself- mention the First Amendment. That ought to really confuse the American people. Edited by: bigunreal

    bigunreal,

    I agree with you but have a hard time caring what happens to a bum like imus. He's an America hating red slob.

    I've never given a rat's @$$ about Imus' schtick & I've no respect for his lack of testicular fortitude. However, we again see a White man being lambasted by the controlled "MSM" for pointing out the obvious. The MSM would indeed defend a piece of rubbish thug like Jones, then allow the 1st Amendment to be exercised. Standard PC BS IMO![​IMG] [​IMG]
