“Nigger, Nigger, Nigger”: Besieged Dr. Laura Schlessinger Says ‘I Quit’; Communist Ed Asner and Libertarian Howard Stern Celebrate; Triumphant Black Racist Nita Hanson Won’t Take “Yes” for an Answer

By Nicholas Stix
August 20, 2010

Call-in radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger has responded to the firestorm of leftists and racists calling for her head, on the August 17 Larry King Show, by telling the socialist host that she is quitting radio, at year’s end.

"I want to regain my first amendment rights. I want to be able to say what is on my mind, in my heart, what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry."

Schlessinger did not explain how quitting radio would regain her her First Amendment rights.

At issue was an August 10 show when a black woman, “Jade” (Nita Hanson), called in, to denounce her white husband’s friends and relatives as “racist,” for asking her what black people thought, allegedly for dropping the “n-word,” and her husband for not doing anything about it.
 


 

SCHLESSINGER: Jade, welcome to the program.

CALLER: Hi, Dr. Laura.

SCHLESSINGER: Hi.

CALLER: I'm having an issue with my husband where I'm starting to grow very resentful of him. I'm black, and he's white. We've been around some of his friends and family members who start making racist comments as if I'm not there or if I'm not black. And my husband ignores those comments, and it hurts my feelings. And he acts like --

SCHLESSINGER: Well, can you give me an example of a racist comment? 'Cause sometimes people are hypersensitive. So tell me what's -- give me two good examples of racist comments.

CALLER: OK. Last night -- good example -- we had a neighbor come over, and this neighbor -- when every time he comes over, it's always a black comment. It's, "Oh, well, how do you black people like doing this?" And, "Do black people really like doing that?" And for a long time, I would ignore it. But last night, I got to the point where it --

SCHLESSINGER: I don't think that's racist.

CALLER: Well, the stereotype --

SCHLESSINGER: I don't think that's racist. No, I think that --

CALLER: [unintelligible]

SCHLESSINGER: No, no, no. I think that's -- well, listen, without giving much thought, a lot of blacks voted for Obama simply 'cause he was half-black. Didn't matter what he was gonna do in office, it was a black thing. You gotta know that. That's not a surprise. Not everything that somebody says -- we had friends over the other day; we got about 35 people here -- the guys who were gonna start playing basketball. I was going to go out and play basketball. My bodyguard and my dear friend is a black man. And I said, "White men can't jump; I want you on my team."

That was racist? That was funny.

CALLER: How about the N-word? So, the N-word's been thrown around --

SCHLESSINGER: Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO, listen to a black comic, and all you hear is nigger, nigger, nigger.

CALLER: That isn't --

SCHLESSINGER: I don't get it. If anybody without enough melanin says it, it's a horrible thing; but when black people say it, it's affectionate. It's very confusing. Don't hang up, I want to talk to you some more. Don't go away.

I'm Dr. Laura Schlessinger. I'll be right back.

[After the commercial:]

SCHLESSINGER: I'm Dr. Laura Schlessinger, talking to Jade. What did you think about during the break, by the way?

CALLER: I was a little caught back by the N-word that you spewed out, I have to be honest with you. But my point is, race relations --

SCHLESSINGER: Oh, then I guess you don't watch HBO or listen to any black comedians.

CALLER: But that doesn't make it right. I mean, race is a [unintelligible] --

SCHLESSINGER: My dear, my dear --

CALLER: -- since Obama's been in office --

SCHLESSINGER: -- the point I'm trying to make --

CALLER: -- racism has come to another level that's unacceptable.

SCHLESSINGER: Yeah. We've got a black man as president, and we have more complaining about racism than ever. I mean, I think that's hilarious.

CALLER: But I think, honestly, because there's more white people afraid of a black man taking over the nation.

SCHLESSINGER: They're afraid.

CALLER: If you want to be honest about it [unintelligible]

SCHLESSINGER: Dear, they voted him in. Only 12 percent of the population's black. Whites voted him in.

CALLER: It was the younger generation that did it. It wasn't the older white people who did it.

SCHLESSINGER: Oh, OK.

CALLER: It was the younger generation --

SCHLESSINGER: All right. All right.

CALLER: -- that did it.

SCHLESSINGER: Chip on your shoulder. I can't do much about that.

CALLER: It's not like that.

SCHLESSINGER: Yeah. I think you have too much sensitivity --

CALLER: So it's OK to say "nigger"?

SCHLESSINGER: -- and not enough sense of humor.

CALLER: It's OK to say that word?

SCHLESSINGER: It depends how it's said.

CALLER: Is it OK to say that word? Is it ever OK to say that word?

SCHLESSINGER: It's -- it depends how it's said. Black guys talking to each other seem to think it's OK.

CALLER: But you're not black. They're not black. My husband is white.

SCHLESSINGER: Oh, I see. So, a word is restricted to race. Got it. Can't do much about that.

CALLER: I can't believe someone like you is on the radio spewing out the "nigger" word, and I hope everybody heard it.

SCHLESSINGER: I didn't spew out the "nigger" word.

CALLER: You said, "Nigger, nigger, nigger."

SCHLESSINGER: Right, I said that's what you hear.

CALLER: Everybody heard it.

SCHLESSINGER: Yes, they did.

CALLER: I hope everybody heard it.

SCHLESSINGER: They did, and I'll say it again --

CALLER: So what makes it OK for you to say the word?

SCHLESSINGER: -- nigger, nigger, nigger is what you hear on HB --

CALLER: So what makes it --

SCHLESSINGER: Why don't you let me finish a sentence?

CALLER: OK.

SCHLESSINGER: Don't take things out of context. Don't double N -- NAACP me. Tape the --

CALLER: I know what the NAACP --

SCHLESSINGER: Leave them in context.

CALLER: I know what the N-word means and I know it came from a white person. And I know the white person made it bad.

SCHLESSINGER: All right. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Can't have this argument. You know what? If you're that hypersensitive about color and don't have a sense of humor, don't marry out of your race. If you're going to marry out of your race, people are going to say, "OK, what do blacks think? What do whites think? What do Jews think? What do Catholics think?" Of course there isn't a one-think per se.

But in general there's "think."

And what I just heard from Jade is a lot of what I hear from black-think -- and it's really distressting [sic] and disturbing. And to put it in its context, she said the N-word, and I said, on HBO, listening to black comics, you hear "nigger, nigger, nigger." I didn't call anybody a nigger. Nice try, Jade. Actually, sucky try.

Need a sense of humor, sense of humor -- and answer the question. When somebody says, "What do blacks think?" say, "This is what I think. This is what I read that if you take a poll the majority of blacks think this." Answer the question and discuss the issue. It's like we can't discuss anything without saying there's -isms?

We have to be able to discuss these things. We're people -- goodness gracious me.

Ah -- hypersensitivity, OK, which is being bred by black activists. I really thought that once we had a black president, the attempt to demonize whites hating blacks would stop, but it seems to have grown, and I don't get it. Yes, I do. It's all about power. I do get it. It's all about power and that's sad because what should be in power is not power or righteousness to do good -- that should be the greatest power.

Hanson has parlayed the August 10 conversation into 15 minutes of fame, with at least three appearances so far on CNN, variously with Larry King, T.J. Holmes, and on Anderson Cooper 360.

Speaking with King on August 19, Hanson condemned Schlessinger,

I think she’s trying to shift the responsibility on to somebody else. Now it’s somebody else’s fault. Well, no, you said it. And I just what like she says, ‘You need to go out and do the right thing.’” “And she needs to own it and claim it. She said it.”

(King: How about quitting radio. How do you feel about that?)

She really needs to be off the air.

To say those type of things; in a, in a, we’re in a situation right now where racism is just huge. But to say those type of things. You can’t say that. You can’t say that. And all I called was for advice. I didn’t ask to be beat up. And personally attacked. And personally attacked, you know.

It just went way too far. She went way too far, and she should not be on the radio; she shouldn’t be anywhere.

Hanson has not demanded that blacks be silenced for publicly using the word that Schlessinger quoted.

 


 

Hanson called in … the race card.

Hanson exposed herself as a run-of-the-mill, hypocritical black racist. Blacks can talk race, race, race, in any way they wish with whites, but if whites are less than deferential, they must have their lives destroyed. But why would a run-of-the-mill black racist call a white talk show host known both for her “conservative” views and for her no-nonsense responses to callers, and then complain that Schlessinger was insensitive?

Hanson claimed to CNN’s T.J. Holmes,
 

 
I didn’t want to make this a racial thing. [Hahaha!] She’s only apologized because she got caught. It’s more than just the N-word. [Yeah, right.] Dr. Laura acted like I set her up…. [Because you did!] I don’t think she’s sincere in her apologies. [Of course, whites' apologies are never enough. But blacks always demand them?] I’ve been married for three wonderful years. [She sure didn’t say that to Schlessinger!]… “I listen to her all the time.” [And I'm an Obamaton!]
When Hanson said, “I didn’t want to make this a racial thing,” and “I listen to her all the time,” she violated the First Law of Lying: Plausibility. I doubt very much that Hanson ever a fan of Schlessinger. Her claim reminds me of the dirty trick campaigns of leftists who claim to be staunch Republicans, and who then either take leftwing positions (to try and make them look acceptable to conservatives), or who act “racist,” in order to try and discredit the Tea Party, Rand Paul, et al. Holmes asked Hanson if it was ever appropriate to use the “N”-word. Hanson said “no,” but spoke of the “civil rights movement,” and insisted that Schlessinger’s use of the word came from her heart, and proved she was a racist. There was no condemnation of the millions of blacks who say the same word billions of times a day (at least once in every sentence). Translated out of racial code, what Hanson is saying is that it is never appropriate for a white to use the word. Both women have followed the Don Imus-Al Sharpton script, which was great for Hanson, but not so good for Schlessinger. Schlessinger made the mistake of apologizing to Hanson, who of course denounced the apology. Was Hanson’s call a set-up, in order to “Imus” Schlessinger? Do cows fart? After all, lefties have been trying to destroy Schlessinger for years. Do I smell a Nita Hanson book deal? A frivolous lawsuit, like the one that some black Rutgers women basketball players filed against Don Imus? In a story published today, “Stars happy with Dr. Laura exit,” The Hollywood Reporter’s Paul Bond reports,
"I found her repellent," Ed Asner told THR. "If she said the N-word, then she's sociopathic. I don't think she'll be missed. There are other Dr. Laura's out there who know how not to go too far." "She used the N-word, and now she has to leave her job," Howard Stern said on his Sirius XM Radio show…. Talkers magazine says her audience tops 9 million unique listeners a week, which ties her with Glenn Beck and Michael Savage for the third-largest audience in talk radio behind Rush Limbaugh (15.3 million) and Sean Hannity (14.3 million).
Asner’s response is shocking in its stupidity, but not surprising, coming from a communist. From a professed libertarian like Stern, however, who has long chafed at any limits on his right to express himself, such hypocrisy is disappointing. Perhaps Stern is just one of the glibertarians one runs into nowadays, for whom “libertarianism” is merely a sophistic rhetoric meant to make them rich as Croesus, rather than a principled philosophy. And of course, it’s he’s covering his own derriere, by acting properly outraged. But that won’t help him, when black racists go after him. And they will. He would have done better to show some integrity. CNN’s Roland S. Martin wrote a column with the bizarre title, “Dr. Laura blew chance to talk about race.” What did Schlessinger do, if not talk about race?
(CNN) -- The beauty of having your own radio or TV show or column is that you have a wonderful opportunity to address many of the significant issues of the day by using the enormous platform that has been bestowed upon you. That's why when I read, and then heard, the stunning, childish, and venomous discussion Dr. Laura Schlesinger had with one of her callers Tuesday, it was clear to me that the firebrand radio talk show host blew a perfect shot. She could have used the exchange around race to help a lot of people. Dr. Laura is getting ripped, rightfully so, for her repeated use of the N-word during the discussion with a black female caller. Instead of paying attention and listening to the woman's genuine concerns about the racist comments made by the friends and family members of her white husband, Dr. Laura made her out to be the villain. It was clear that Dr. Laura had a beef of her own when it comes to black folks being too sensitive about matters of race, and that's why she tried to use the example of black comedians using the N-word to buttress her position that the woman should really pipe down and not be so sensitive about such issues. She could have easily pivoted from the caller's question to explore this issue, but she didn't, choosing to dig herself deeper and deeper into the racial abyss.
One of the giveaways of black racists nowadays is their calls for a conversation about race. The last thing in the world that racists like Nita Hanson, Roland Martin, Eric Holder or “Barack Obama” want is a conversation about race. They want to lecture whites, and get outraged whenever a white refuses to play the role they have assigned him as a white Uncle Tom or, in this case, white Aunt Jemima. (I have previously exposed Martin as a black supremacist.) Nita Hanson told CNN's T.J. Holmes that she was "confused" by her conversation with Schlessinger, and claimed that she wasn't saying that it was o.k. for blacks to use the word, but not for whites. So that there is no ambiguity, and my readers don't fall for Hanson's current story, let's review the central passage of the radio dialogue.
CALLER: How about the N-word? So, the N-word's been thrown around -- SCHLESSINGER: Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO, listen to a black comic, and all you hear is nigger, nigger, nigger. CALLER: That isn't -- SCHLESSINGER: I don't get it. If anybody without enough melanin says it, it's a horrible thing; but when black people say it, it's affectionate. It's very confusing. Don't hang up, I want to talk to you some more. Don't go away. I'm Dr. Laura Schlessinger. I'll be right back.... SCHLESSINGER: It's -- it depends how it's said. Black guys talking to each other seem to think it's OK. CALLER: But you're not black. They're [the husband's friends and relatives] not black. My husband is white. SCHLESSINGER: Oh, I see. So, a word is restricted to race. Got it. Can't do much about that. CALLER: I can't believe someone like you is on the radio spewing out the "nigger" word, and I hope everybody heard it. SCHLESSINGER: I didn't spew out the "nigger" word. CALLER: You said, "Nigger, nigger, nigger." SCHLESSINGER: Right, I said that's what you hear. CALLER: Everybody heard it. SCHLESSINGER: Yes, they did. CALLER: I hope everybody heard it. SCHLESSINGER: They did, and I'll say it again -- CALLER: So what makes it OK for you to say the word?
Like the lady said, it's all about power. A tip ‘o the hat to George Soros, for paying to have the transcript prepared, and some of the videos posted.
