(The Raw Story)   Former Tea Party congressman and now former radio host Joe Walsh doesn't understand why he was kicked off the air and suspended from his own radio show in the middle of a live broadcast. See if you can figure out why   (rawstory.com) divider line 375

He just hasn't been himself since he left The Eagles.

He should have said he was a rap artist. They can advocate rape rape and call anybody the "word that shall not be named".

Joe Walsh? So What!
 
2014-06-20 07:12:52 AM  
Wanna bet that if a different DJ had a discussion about the "f-word" Joe Walsh would be the first one to demand that that DJ gets thrown in jail?

/Yeah, I know DJ is the wrong term. I am unsure of the correct so I am using it in its stead.

Weird you say that because rap or hip-hop songs played on my local station also get the n-word censored from them. Looks like freedom of speech oppression just hits everyone really hard, right?

Technically 'spick' is not a racial slur. There's not supposed to be a K at the end of it. At least there wasn't back in my day. Maybe that's how the racist kids are spelling it these days to be hip.

Rowdy Roddy Piper used words such as "spic" and "wop" during his promos in the 80s. He was really, REALLY hated by the crowds; especially at MSG

It's cute how you think there is someone out there setting rules.  Anyone can say any word anytime they want.  You may not have the balls, and your employer may not want you to work for him anymore,but there aren't any "rules" about what you can say.

Joe--

I listen to you everyday and think you put out important information each day.
There are many people who comment here negatively about you but that is
because they have never listened to you or just don't take the time to grasp
what you are saying.

America is in trouble but most people don't get it or just don't care.
I hope 560 has the sense to not drop you.


Using the n-word or s-word is critical to saving America's very soul it seems.

Was he actually posting tweets while his farking boss was trying to straighten shiat out with him during his farking broadcast?  Because that really reads like he was.  And that's intensely farked up.

No. No he can't.

I don't know exactly what he said, but from the limited context in the Raw Story post, he might have a limited point.  I think his point was that if the term "Redskin" is really as bad as "N-----", why are we allowed to use the term in casual conversation?  Why is it not automatically bleeped like "N-----"?

I really don't know the context of what he is saying, and I am taking a shower as we speak to get the filth of defending Joe Walsh off me.  But it appears that he was only addressing the terms themselves and not using the terms to denigrate.  His point seems to be along the lines of "FARK automatically filters "N-----", but will let me post "Redskin" every time.  Maybe the terms aren't equally offensive."

/Meh.

When main stream liberal media and Obama and his cronies spend all of their effort shutting down your viewpoint, you resort to what you can, like the underground French resistance in WW2, like twitter and facebook. his boos should be lucky that he came unarmed this time.

What's the double standard here?  If a rap artist makes a crappy record, the broadcasting of which would end up costing the station advertisers then they wouldn't be allowed to stay on the air either.

I never said that N----- wasn't offensive.  I also didn't say Redskin wasn't offensive.  I'm merely saying that, without hearing the actual recording, it seems to me he was most likely saying something along the lines of "Redskin is obviously not as offensive as N----- because we are allowed to say Redskin, but we are not allowed to say N-----."  That's a big difference from calling someone a N-----.

You seem to be making the argument that because not all words are equally offensive, then no word can be offensive.

Redneck isn't a racist term.  It's classist.  One can choose not be a redneck.  It's significantly harder to choose not to be native American.

So your employer didn't want you to say certain things and then you said certain things. Well you can disagree philosophically til kingdom come but your employer doesn't have to keep paying you, buddy. Not like they made up the rules while you weren't looking.

2014-06-20 09:20:41 AM  
Maybe it's not about which word is more offensive, but how we still treat a sub set of our population. It's no less offensive, our culture just cares less about the native population.

I really don't understand the, "b... b... but they can say it" rational for using offensive language.  Why is it so important to use a word to communicate a particular idea?  Fairly recently, within the last 5 years ago or so, the word 'retarded' started becoming taboo.  You say, "that trade was retarded" on an online forum and some would respond, "that word it terrible, my son has autism and I think that word if offensive!"  Fine, all I wanted to communicate was that I thought a team's trade was ill-advised, I call it moronic instead.  Are people so ignorant that they can only communicate their ideas using language that offends?
