See no evil Olympian monkeys, Eddie Murphy and extending TV sabbaticals

Not part of the captive audience spoon-fed broadcast network political correctness and Olympic “values” that treat dead Jews like monkeys

More than a dozen years ago we limited our viewing of the three major broadcast networks to live sports, Seinfeld re-runs, and recorded (so we can fast forward through the ads) Sunday political shows. After making exceptions for House and 24 for several years, and tiring of soundbite prime-time political TV, we extended our TV sabbatical to all but sports, portions of the Sunday shows and “Hammertime”, i.e. the last 20 minutes of Fox News Channel’s weekday “Special Report” featuring Charles Krauthammer and The Panel.

But we love America and the Olympics is sports, so we resolved to give the National Broadcasting Company a shot. We were happy to find a righteously indignant Bob Costas chastising the Olympic Committee Powers That Be for refusing to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Arab/Muslim/Palestinian terrorist murders of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympiad:

As the athletes marched in Friday, Costas said that IOC President Jacques Rogge led a moment of silence for the late Israelis this week before about 100 people at the Athlete’s Village.

“Still, for many, tonight with the world watching is the true time and place to remember those who were lost and how and why they died,” Costas said.

After a five-second pause, NBC cut to a commercial.

Liberal hear no evil monkey silence meant to keep Arab/Muslim despots happy was bad enough. Too bad it was interrupted by the noise of a no longer great, Britain, ashamed of its Glorious Revolutions, political and industrial, but pathologically prideful of socialist medicine. The Opening Ceremony never visualized all the slaves freed thanks to William Wilburforce. Wouldn’t want to call attention to all the African and Asian nations that still engage in the practice?

Films on the Industrial Revolution only showed black smoke billowing from factory smokestacks. Cameras never panned toward the humans on the ground benefiting from exponentially greater standard of livings and life expectancy. Nothing to see there. Is it any wonder that so many immigrants to England, Scotland and Wales never warmed up to a nation that seems ashamed of its own past, and thus turn to radical Islam that has no such qualms about even its terrorist present? After all Sharia and its dehumanization of women, “honor” killings etc. is part of “mainstream” Islam that even some U.K. barrister’s wig-wearing judges honor in their courts.

Domestic work and play timing allowed us to view both tennis singles finals at the same time as the event schedule informed, so when this gamecock tuned in to the peacock’s flagship network for the only event we truly craved to see live, not only didn’t we see a Bolt vying to remain the World’s Fastest Human, half of the “athletes” on the screen were horses. Sorry, we have Sea Biscuit on tape and don’t like to be reminded of Rhett and Scarlett’s child lost to equine exploits in Gone With The Wind.

Finally, the flap over the supposed offensive monkey commercial that aired  immediately after the first African-American female won gymnastics gold for the United States reminded us of 2008’s Obama Campaign that branded Bill Clinton a racist over the South Carolina primary and Liberals that find accurate drawings of Blacks, that they suspected to be caricatures, to be insulting.

Of course, given their serial use of fake charges of racism against conservatives and Republicans for decades, both NBC and Bill Clinton “deserved” their respective comeuppances, but what do you call a person that deems large lips and dark skin offensive? Racist maybe? And didn’t anyone else see the old Eddie Murphy stand-up routine (later mimicked by Martin Lawrence) that cataloged the numerous physical characteristics that Caucasians share with simians?

So, its back to radio, especially for news and ofttimes even for sports. Feels right as Rush on the EIB network and Don Sutton calling Braves games on 750 WSB.

  1. I hear ya Mike. With the advent of DVRs I just record the stuff and then go through to what I want to see. Mainly the gymnastics and Gabby Douglas proclaiming her Christian faith.

    We have almost 600 channels but I mostly watch reruns of SATC and Everybody Loves Raymond.

    UK used to be on my visit list, but not anymore.

    Can’t wait to see what Rio does. Or I should say “doesn’t.” I have my doubts the land of “amanha” can pull this off and if they bulldoze those 2M people in the favelas on the hills of Rio into the ocean.

  2. I watch alot of things on the Military Channel. I have not even tuned in to the Olympics this year, and usually I am really into the Summer Games.  Too much of the liberal dog and pony show coming out of London, and at this point I wouldn’t bother to walk across the street to urinate on NBC if they were on fire.

      • I just started watching this week, and one observation I have is the US women are a lot less wimpy than the US men.  For the first time US men’s boxing is eliminated from medal contention.  The US women include a gal from Houston who is contending for a gold medal.
