Liberal Intolerance on TV

We read:
"Chuck Todd and company at NBC News are outraged that conservative talker Beck won't --or can't-- be fired for calling President Obama a "racist." They blogged as follows:
On the Glenn Becks and Howard Beales: The White House doesn't want to give Glenn Beck a bigger platform or extra oxygen -- especially regarding his remark yesterday that the president has "a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture" -- so they won't comment, even off record.....

What's most amazing about this episode is that what Beck said isn't a fireable or even a SUSPENDABLE offense by his bosses. There was a time when outrageous rants like this would actually cost the ranters their jobs.....

So much for the national discussion on race relations that leftists and journalists say America desperately needs.

Of course when liberal demagogues maliciously declare their enemies racist in the complete absence of evidence, such as when House Ways and Means Committee chairman Charles Rangel (D-New York) said Republican tax cuts were racist ("It's not 'sp--' or 'ni--er' anymore. They say, 'Let's cut taxes.'") we hear barely a peep from the liberal media.

Meanwhile, a radical pressure group called the Southern Poverty Pimp Law Center wants adversary Lou Dobbs of CNN canned. The SPLC's Richard Cohen claims he wants Dobbs off the air because "[f]or years, Dobbs has been trading in baseless, conspiratorial claims that originate on the radical right."

Anyone who has monitored this fundraising powerhouse that masquerades as a public interest law firm knows the SPLC hates --and I don't use that word lightly-- Dobbs because of the hard line he takes on immigration issues. The group continually smears Dobbs as a racist and this helps its coffers grow.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is a far-left organization that was started by members of the Communist Party of America, as was the ACLU. And as is the case with most radical Left-wing groups, they always pick "patriotic"-sounding names to hide behind.

Lou Dobbs (IMO) is one of the most fair-minded people in the MSM. He's not one of the ranting buffoons from Fox, nor is he one of MSNBC's on-air Marxists. He's the only rational (non-Left) thinker on CNN.

As for Obummer being a racist, his impulsive action on the part of his ranting professor friend made it clear that he is .

President Obama is not a plain good ole boy racist.

He's an elite, Harvard educated racist.

New rules, people. You can scream WHITEY and I HATE AMERICA on the radio or the pulpit and you're not a racist if you're black. If you just change the words around a little, you ARE a racist. Old Martin Luther must be rolling around in his grave. They ONLY judge people by the color of thier skin, content of character be damned!

If Charlie Rangel thinks the desire to cut taxes, a natural human instinct to minimize the immoral theft from people by force by the government, is "racist", then there is no longer any need to feel ashamed if someone calls you a racist. And we'll need a new word to describe hostility toward an individual based on visible, identifiable features of race.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"
so prohibiting the free exercise outside of a church is ok? If my religion believes that the whole world is a church, can I then put religious icons outdoors?
A true athiest would not be offended by others religious icons, just as the truly religious should not be offended by other religions icons. I am not offended that we learn Greek and Roman mythology in schools. I am dissappointed we dont learn Egyptian, or Norse, or Oriental mythology. Only those who question their own beliefs should fear the beliefs of others.
