This is without question the pettiest, most malevolent absurd piece of rubbish I’ve ever encountered with dealing with public somebody’s. Call them “good at what they do” or aspired to the pinnacles of their professions; heck, call them anything you like but please – the guilt mongering has to go!
Rush Limbaugh’s imitation of the Chinese language during a recent speech made by Chinese President Hu Jintao has stirred a backlash among Asian-American lawmakers in California and nationally.
California State Sen. Leland Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, is leading a fight in demanding an apology from the radio talk show host for what he and others view as racist and derogatory remarks against the Chinese people.
“The comments that he made – the mimicking of the Chinese language – harkens back to when I was a little boy growing up in San Francisco and those were hard days, rather insensitive days,” Yee said in an interview Thursday. “You think you’ve arrived and all of a sudden get shot back to the reality that you’re a second-class citizen.”
“He was speaking and they weren’t translating,” Limbaugh said. “They normally translate every couple of words. Hu Jintao was just going ching chong, ching chong cha.”
Pathetically, Yee is sinking to a new all-time low. Everyone – nobody can make you anything – in this case a man who has risen to become a State Senator in California. To think that someone’s mimic of language – a technique used by comedians everywhere – uses infliction to make a point – and an extremely good point – should not, and we’d argue cannot make someone feel “they’ve arrived…and suddenly shot back to ‘the reality’ of being a second-class citizen.” (Nah…only you can do that)
Yee in his statement says, ‘His classless act is an insult to over 3,000 years of cultural history, and is a slap in the face to the millions of Chinese Americans who have struggled in this country and to a people who constitute one-quarter of the world’s population,’ Yee said in a statement. ‘His comments…'”
This is exactly the point so please take notice: According to Yee it was Rush Limbaugh who made the aforementioned statements and comments; huge mistake! The reality of the matter is that Limbaugh did nothing of the sort. Mr. Limbaugh wasn’t making a statement nor was he commenting on anything.
Most of our respectful readers know our position with regards to special interest groups. This is an example ladies and gentlemen, of how a group lobbying (for money) attacking someone for what wasn’t stated and the only offensive issue is brought forth from a man who alleges another person made ‘such and such’ comments.
Therefore, what we do have here is special interest groups intent on making enough noise to have advertisers pull their products from Limbaugh’s show at the very least; we state this insofar as we believe that there is another issue involved here – a possible law suit, therefore, in both cases it is about money.
Any and all hate mongering people of “protected status” and politicians alike now hear this: We have this portion of our Constitution that advocates the freedom of someone to speak. In the event that you don’t like what that person has said – our advice is simply – Get Over It!
