Free to Hate

“Barrack the Magic Negro”

Free speech can be a bitch sometimes. When nitwits go over the line of decency, good taste, and common sense, most of America is appalled. And we should be – as we vigorously defend our most important freedom- Freedom of Speech. And we must defend it – even for assholes.

Conservative Republicans are tossing around the song above which is sung to the tune of “Puff the Magic Dragon.” It was first played on the national airwaves in 2007. Any guess by whom? Bingo! Mr. Oxy-HYPOCRITE-Cotin himself, Rush Limbaugh. Liberals are screaming all over the country as loudly  as the blind people who are bellowing over Saturday Night Live’s tasteless portrayal of New York Governor, David Paterson.

Everyone should just take a deep breath and smile. Smile because this is America and any looney is free to say or sing just about anything that doesn’t directly threaten other people. May it always be so. Smile because trounced Republicans are floundering around for a new identity and this song is now associated with them. It’s an association at which most Americans will hold their noses. Smile because in the grand scheme of things, this song means about as much as a pimple on a gnat’s ass.

And smile because the man we elected President is now assuming office with quiet dignity and resolve as President Hayseed and Vice President Hateseed sink into oblivion.

Smile – America is dawning again.

    Great column.

  2. They crucified Abraham Lincoln and then a nitwit shot him. On the bright side it does send a big fat you were wrong about America message to people that hate us because we hate minorities. I didn’t want any of the delegates but since he won we all better get behind him because he’s inheritting one big mess. Anyone that’s ever been on the street knows if your a lost white boy the best place to get the wisdom to survive comes from the old black folks.

    Have no idea what the fuck you’re talking about. AMY! Is he from your planet?

  4. The election sends the ‘they were wrong about America message’ not your article. If one needs to know where Sally’s is one has to ask the black graybeards. A lot of the country still has to hit the pavement to find a job but Limbaugh doesn’t even know what Sally’s is much less where one is. If one needs help he won’t get it from Rush, good advice and directions come from old survivors. I thought everyone had got a honest street education by now, they do exist. Right here on whatever planet this one is, I lose track.
