Where's a Good Firing When You Need One?
05/13/2010
IconAs I've written in a prior blog, I agreed with the firing of Imus.  His decades of uncivil remarks for "entertainment" (his word) needed to come to a close.   I hope this is just the beginning of firing folks for hateful remarks.  Let's go to that peace and groovy love group, "Rage Against the Machine."  In a recent concert in the Coachella Valley in California, lead singer-rapper Zack de la Rocha shouted, "This current administration....should be tried and hung and shot."  He also likened President Bush to a Nazi war criminal. I don't think Zack ever walked through Dachau concentration camp while it was in operation or since.  I did.  I realized that as a half-Jew I would have died in one of the ovens and my body thrown in a pit, had it not been for an accident of my birth coming after the war. That comparison as well as the death declaration should be enough to fire Zack.  He meant it - Imus was just being a righteous jerk.Another individual ripe for firing should be Sheik Ahmad Bahr, acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council.  He is reported to have declared during a Friday sermon at a Sudan mosque that America and Israel will be annihilated, and "called upon Allah to kill Jews and Americans 'to the very last one.'  He meant that.  Imus was just being a righteous jerk.
