Not just Imus

Now that Don Imus has also been fired by CBS I hope attention is turned to other obvious racists on the radio who have free form to speak the hate. Here is a few people I have in mind (you can imagine who will be in the list) but I will also have the quotes that make me feel this way.

Rush Limbaugh: "Black People can't swim." "[t]he media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well" and, therefore, that McNabb "got a lot of credit for the performance of this team [the Eagles] that he didn't deserve."

Glen Beck to Keith Ellison (D)
"OK. No offense, and I know Muslims. I like Muslims. ... With that being said, you are a Democrat. You are saying, 'Let's cut and run.' And I have to tell you, I have been nervous about this interview with you, because what I feel like saying is, 'Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies.' "

Glen Beck on Katrina victims: "Scumbags"

Neal Boortz on the execution last year of convicted murderer Tookie Williams: "Schwarzenegger knows full well that as soon as Tookie's death is announced there will be riots in South Central Los Angeles and elsewhere." Boortz wrote that "[t]here are thugs just waiting for an excuse ... not a reason, an excuse" and explained that "[t]he rioting, of course, will lead to wide-scale looting."

Bill O'Idiot: On gay marriage ""Nature dictates that a dad and a mom is the optimum" form of child-rearing. O'Reilly asked "why," if children suffer no psychosocial deficit from being raised by same-sex parents, "wouldn't nature then make it that anybody could get pregnant by eating a cupcake?"

on Katina evacuations: many of the poor in New Orleans" did not evacuate the city before Hurricane Katrina because "[t]hey were drug-addicted" and "weren't going to get turned off from their source." O'Reilly added, "They were thugs."

goto for more racism. The airwaves need to be cleaned up. Imus was step one.
