DR. LAURA – YOU ARE NOT BEING ASSASSINATED! YOU KNOW WHO WAS ALMOST ASSASSINATED? REP. GIFFORDS. YOU? YOU ARE BEING ASKED TO STFU.

From her interviews on Today today (if you need a refresher about why she went away, click here and here):

Dr. Laura Schlessinger, the radio therapist who ignited controversy last August with her repeated use of the “N-word” while speaking to an African-American caller on air and subsequently moved from broadcast radio to satellite, said Tuesday: “To call me a racist? That was absurd.”

During an appearance on TODAY to promote a new book, Schlessinger told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb: “What it is is, I’m a social conservative; that’s what it’s about.”

Schlessinger also made it clear she feels singled out for her political views — she has spoken out against extramarital sex, working mothers, abortion and gay rights, among other issues — during an earlier TODAY interview with Matt Lauer.

“With the Urban League coming after me, the NAACP, Media Matters (Media Matters for America, a progressive watchdog group) … all without talking to me at all; deciding I should be silenced,” she told Lauer. “That’s when I realized I had to go on Sirius XM or something like that in order to have the freedom of speech without being assassinated.”

This makes me want to scream.  In the video, she actually spends time finding the word “assassinated” before saying it.  She THINKS ABOUT IT.  And THEN USES IT ANYWAY.

This lady, she know that Rep. Giffords was shot in the head just over a week ago.  She knows that a political assassination was just attempted and in that attempt 6 people died, including a 9yo girl.  I’m sorry – I guess it is possible that she hasn’t seen a TV in a while since her HUGE EGO blocks everything else in her view.

Despite the reality of the really super recent attempted assassination of Giffords, here Dr. Laura is, holier-than-thou, saying that people who do not like her hateful racist rants want to kill her.  Who, again, is it that uses violent language?  Oh yeah, those mean, hate-filled right wing garbage spewers.  I’ve been over her lies about her “freedom of speech” being taken away.  You’d think someone so aligned with the RW would understand her 1st amendment better (don’t they read the Constitution every single night before going to sleep?) – but hey, if someone seriously considering running for the office of President doesn’t get it, why should Dr. Laura bother?

On that note, let’s all remember so nicely that Sarah Palin, in the wake of the controversy surrounding Dr. Laura’s racist rant against a caller, Palin told her to not retreat but – you guessed it! – reload! I asked Ms. Palin, at that time, to please stop it with the violent rhetoric, “because it is threatening and violent, and she means it against people like me, the ones who don’t like her and openly criticize her”.  Oh well, I guess.

Also, the opening part of the article is awesome:

“To call me a racist? That was absurd.”

During an appearance on TODAY to promote a new book, Schlessinger told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb: “What it is is, I’m a social conservative; that’s what it’s about.”

Is she saying that correct term for “racist” these days is “social conservative”?  Because the way this text is edited, it sort of reads like that (it doesn’t actually sound like that on the interview but I delight in how it was written up by MSNBC).

Gems from the interview with Kotb and Gifford (in case you can’t stomach it):

  • She says that she would like people who disagree with her zapped by lightening so that she can have revenge.  Nice.
  • She is the “good guy” who has been attacked the “bad guys”, the ones with no rules, who have gone after her family and her “soul”.
  • She doesn’t think it’s bad to want a “bad person” to get hurt.
  • She’s “basically a decent person.”

In her interview with Lauer (she says all the things above AND):

  • She’s been a victim in her life since the age of 15, when her best friend stole her boyfriend.  In case you have missed her shtick for the last few decades, let me scream it for her: DR LAURA IS A GIANT VICTIM OF EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE WHO EVER SAYS ANYTHING REMOTELY NEGATIVE ABOUT HER HATE-FILLED BOOKS, INTERVIEWS, and RADIO SHOWS!
  • She LOVES revenge.
  • Her defense of her n-word rant is: I was making a good point, I didn’t call the caller a name, AND the black people do it all the time!

She also said this to Kotb and Gifford:

When Gifford mentioned that Bill Cosby has complained about the same issue, Schlessinger commented: “What a good guy he is. And look what they did to him. They Uncle Tommed him because he stood up for values.”

Yeah, she sucks.  And I want her racist mouth to shut the fuck up.  Right now.  Seriously, stop talking.

Recap: Dr. Laura sucks.  And hasn’t been assassinated.  And should grow a heart.  That is all.

  1. Each time I think the Today show cannot sink any lower, they seem to find away. I have not watched their drivel in years and they have yet to produce one worthy news story or interview that would even begin to change my mind. An interview with Dr. Laura – give me a break! Gross!!

  2. I think Beck was on there the other day hocking his new book.

    I never watch it either unless I see that they have courted crap again.
