    Ding, dong…

    (A h/t to John Avarosis of AmericaBlog who was one of the founders of StopDrLaura.com and the most visible in the campaign to buffer this vile, hateful, and woefully ignorant bitch over these last ten years.)

    Folks, don’t kid yourself… she is far from gone. I predict she’ll be a commentator on Fox and you’ll now see quotes from her all the time about all kinds of political issues – in much the same way the Sarah Palin keeps popping up. The narrative will be: “Bold Christian Conservation fighting to keep her freedom of speech which is under attack from liberals and homosexual activists.” The hypocrisy is sickening.

    My God… I’m sooooo tired of hearing these whiny bitches moan about their first amendment rights… no one’s silencing her… they’re CRITICIZING her, and rightly so. For the last fucking time (yeah, right)… freedom of speech does not mean freedom from criticism. If this leathery old thoot can’t figure that out on her own, then maybe her opinions aren’t worthy of air time.

    There’s nothing like the screeching of a bigoted conservative throwing around first-amendment rights. “I want to be able to tell people how to hate and you won’t let me! Waaaaah!” Well, she can always use her “doctorate” for what it was initially intended and help herself recover from that awful plastic surgery.

    She’s undoubtedly about to have her contract cancelled. So, what’s this new medium she’s going to turn to that doesn’t have affiliates and sponsored? Teabagger rallies?

    @ The Milkman — me too! I love how these bigots are always complaining how ‘liberals’ are whiners and need the govt to constantly protect ‘them’, but let them say something moronic in public and the public reacts and all of the sudden they are First Amendment victims! WOW, what a pussy!

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer lizard.

    She complains about people interfering with her right to freedom of speech, when what she really has a problem with is when people don’t like what she says. Sorry, Honey, that part’s not covered – that’s us using our right to free speech. Get it?

    Just like Dr. Phil, she abuses her title. She is not a medical doctor, yet tries to pass herself off as one.

    Snake oil salesmen, at best, the both of them.

    Good riddance and good luck with that blogging thing.

    Two points:

    She clearly lied when she apologized including her description of how she knew that she was out of line which caused her to not return for the second half of her show.

    And she values HER free speech rights much more than she does the free speech rights of her listeners. Or perhaps she believes that “freedom of speech” means “freedom of unchallenged speech”. Either way, she’s WRONG. Constitutional freedom of speech protects her from GOVERNMENTAL intervention NOT from PUBLIC challenge. The fact that she can’t say “FUCK” on the radio is her ONLY real violation of Constitutional free speech because it’s the government that is limiting her speech rights. Having the general public challenging her, boycotting her and complaining to her boss is every bit as much a part of a philosophical free speech right as her right to spew ignorant and hateful bile over the airwaves on a daily basis.

    How ironic that she has, MANY times, encouraged her listeners to boycott this company or that company for violating HER self-righteous moral standards yet when people do the same to her she whines about free speech rights.

    Most of the right-wing talk radio talk show hosts I’ve ever heard have no issue with saying the most egregious, factually untrue things at the drop of a hat–and they never have to worry about being silenced. Maybe Dr. L and folks like her should simply put some thought into what they say, instead of spouting off crap and then playing the victim when people call them on their bullshit. Her First Amendment rights aren’t at stake here–her lack of any critical thinking is the problem.

    Awww…. poooooooor Dr. Laura.

    Maybe if you had been more willing to ‘debate’ instead of ‘browbeat’ people with your idiotic opinions it wouldn’t have come to this point.

    I’m so glad to see you getting the ‘Helen Thomas’ treatment. Good riddance.

  12. says

    I actually used to love listening to Dr. Laura when I was a kid, but stopped one day when I realized what a disservice she was doing to people who had serious, serious problems — making them think that they didn’t need counseling, but rather, a quick phone call to her.

    So, I let her go, and when I heard this ridiculous rant, I was shocked. I always knew she was conservative, but her points: “You’re oversensitive,” “Don’t marry outside of your race,” and that black people suffer from “Black-think” as demonstrated by their support of Obama (because, of course, black people are too simple to find other reasons to support the man), is sickening and offensive.

    And, to be clear, she now claims that because she is being criticized, she’s a victim? That’s insanity. Absolute insanity. Adios!

  13. Piper says

    “I’m never wrong!” “What I said offended people? Why? But I’m right.” “You don’t know what you’re talking about?”

    No matter the topic, this is endless string of thoughts running through her head when someone is speaking to her. I hear Glenn Beck needs someone to do the weather on his show.

  14. Rikard says

    like Palin. tired of being held to account for what she says. wants to be able to spew irresponsible theories and half truths, not to mention the outright deceptions to bolster a bigoted position. so much easier preaching to the choir i suppose.

  15. Bryan Harrison says

    “I want to regain my First Amendment rights. I want to be able to say what’s on my mind, and in my heart, what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is a time to silence a voice of dissent, and attack affiliates and attack sponsors…”

    The First Amendment does not provide anyone the right to freedom from the consequences of self expression.
