Dr. Laura Schlessinger announced tonight she is ending her radio show, a week after she broadcast a five-minute-long rant in which she used the N-word 11 times.Any sane person who heard the entire conversation Dr. Laura had with that Black caller, in which she used the N-word 11 times, understood full damn well the context she was using it in, making a point--"Black people say 'nigger' all the time so what's the big deal if whites use it?"-- that while culturally ignorant, wasn't at all "RACIST!" But leave it to the desperate loons on the Left, from the usual suspects like Al Sharpton to the NYTimes, to pull out the race card, deflect from the real issues facing Americans and attack a white conservative radio talk show host (a cohesive effort to protect a growingly unpopular radically liberal President, no doubt). It's what they do all the time and Dr. Laura should've had enough guts not to cave to their liberal terrorism.
Schlessinger said on "Larry King Live" tonight that she has decided "not to do radio anymore" so she can say the things she wants to say.
"The reason is, I want to regain my First Amendment rights," she said. "I want to be able to say what's on my mind and in my heart and what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is the time to silence a voice of dissent and attack affiliates, attack sponsors. I'm sort of done with that."
