Referring to black Americans, and the people who like them, as special interest groups, Dr. Laura Schlessenger told Larry King tonight she would not renew her radio show contract at the end of the year because, ahem, she wants to “regain my First Amendment rights.” This, from the woman who drops “nigger” 11 times in 10 minutes.
You see, Dr. Laura is tired of “some special interest group deciding this is the time to silence a voice of dissent and attack affiliates, attack sponsors. I’m sort of done with that.” After 30 years. And “angry hateful groups” have “usurped” her First Amendment rights who “don’t want to debate, they want to eliminate.” Catchy! (Also, untrue: The First Amendment protects her right to speak from government censors, not average citizens who call her advertisers to complain.)
But anyhow: Bye!
Not that Dr. Laura is going anywhere: She’ll still write books and get paid for speaking engagements, and I think she would be smart to start a podcast. (Does she already have one? I can’t bother to log on to her website.) But please, lady, don’t take any titling tips from Nas.
