In Europe, Bryan Ferry has apologized for making a true statement... that the Hitler's Nazis were experts at propaganda and making some great looking movies. Ferry said in an interview: "My God, the Nazis knew how to put themselves in the limelight and present themselves. Leni Riefenstahl's movies and Albert Speer's buildings and the mass parades and the flags - just amazing. Really beautiful."
Ferry did not praise Nazis or Nazism. He made a factually true statement, yet crybabies looking for reasons to be offended took offense, and he has had to apologize for speaking the truth.
In tne United States, obnoxious talkshow host Don Imus has been fired and censored after calling a university basketball team a bunch of "nappy-headed hoes." The hunt for his head was led by race hustler extra-ordinaire Jesse Jackson (who once referred to NYC as "hymie-town"), and Imus was canned for offending crybabies looking to be offended. He even apologized for his remarks--which may or may not be true; I don't know if the basketball team is nappy-headed OR a bunch of hoes--and he was still fired.
I do know that the few times I've listened to Imus, I've found it to be a big waste of my time. I don't understand why he has a following, but I am annoyed by the swift caving that his employers did in firing him.
Businesses and inviduals really need to stop bending over and taking it up the ass from people who are just looking for excuses to be offended, particularly when those leading the chorus of the offended are hypocrites like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
There's also the fact that that these "victims" of comments like those made by Ferry and Imus have the emotional maturity of retarded four year olds. One of the alleged "nappy-haired hoes" was quoted by the AP as claiming she was scarred for life by Imus's comments. Whoever this pathetic woman-child is, she needs to grow up. And she needs to remember the saying: "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me."
For the broken hearted on this Friday night. - It's the ultimate "that loving feeling's gone" ballad. Cheer up... it could be worse!
