Randi Rhodes Suspended for Offending the Party of Tolerance

Speaking in San Francisco, liberal Air America host (pardon the redundancy) Randi Rhodes called Hillary Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro “Big f*#&%#g whores.”

Besides meaning that Hillary and Geraldine can expect a “where can we hook up?” email from Debbie Stabenow’s husband, the comment enraged the party of inclusiveness and the sole guarantor of free speech rights in this country — the Democrats — to the point where Air America has suspended Rhodes.

And this isn’t even something Rhodes said on air. However, Rhodes’ words were said at an event sponsored by an Air America affiliate. Here’s AA’s press release on Rhodes’ suspension:

Air America has suspended on-air host Randi Rhodes for making inappropriate statements about prominent figures, including Senator Hillary Clinton, at a recent public appearance on behalf of Air America in San Francisco which was sponsored by an Air America affiliate station.

“Air America encourages strong opinions about public affairs but does not condone such abusive, ad hominem language by our Hosts,” said chair Charlie Kireker.

Now there’s a laugh! In past months and years, Rhodes has joked about the assassination of President Bush — all done on-air, and all without suspension. I guess it depends on who the target is, and how heavy the retaliation from that target is. AA caved and bent over because of Clinton backlash — what a bunch of f*#&%#g whores.

Below is a short video of Rhodes’ comments, along with Ferraro calling for her firing. The message is clear: If you’re bashing the proper people, you’re entitled to free speech rights, and the company you’re representing is expected to uphold those rights. If you’re a member of any party and bashing the wrong people, you should be put down for the good of humanity.

This is the kind of “tolerance” that liberals bring to government and attempt to legislate, and is exactly why they shouldn’t ever be elected. Rhodes has helped point out this fact, so, ironically, we owe this liberal a bit of thanks.
