Yet, another example of of the kind of toxic, hypocritical talk that goes on liberal radio and why when compared to its conservative counterparts it continues to be an utter fail:
Yeah. Apparently Ed Schultz has forgotten that he’s not on Saturday Night Live. And that it isn’t 1978. Yesterday on his radio show, Schultz decided to call Laura Ingraham a “right-wing slut.” Now, before you get all up in arms, Schultz did clarify his statement. He followed it by calling her a “talk slut.” That’s better, right? No.UPDATE: MSNBC Suspends Ed Schultz Over 'Unacceptable' Remarks
Here’s his comments:
“And what do the Republicans thinking about? They’re not thinking about their next-door neighbor. They’re just thinking about how much this is going to cost. President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Mo., on Sunday but you know what they’re talking about, like this right-wing slut, what’s her name?, Laura Ingraham? Yeah, she’s a talk slut. You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obama’s doing it, they’re working him over.”
Schultz was discussing Ingraham’s comments about President Obama’s trip to Europe and…you know what? The backstory really doesn’t matter here. What was he thinking? I can’t think of any possible situation where it would be ok for him to call a woman a slut. I don’t know. Maybe if Ingraham herself had walked into the studio wearing a shirt with the words “Hey, please call me a slut” written in big letters. Even then it would be a bad idea.
Look, if you don’t agree with something the woman says, you can feel free to call her an “idiot” or a “jerk” or a “big, stupid poop-face.” Whatever you want. Just don’t call her a slut, you big, stupid poop-face!
For the billionth time, when insulting someone in the media, don’t use a word that has negative connotations connected to their gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, of unchangeable physical features or handicaps. Why is this so damn difficult to understand? Ed, weren’t you just yelling at Eric Bolling for saying the President drank “forties?”
