Tom Delay Calls for Rosie O Donnell to be Fired (Vote in Poll)

Dont forget to Vote, Also We can Use some Positive Comments on digg at

(April 13) -- Fanning the flames of discontent sparked by the Imus controversy, former congressman Tom DeLay is making a plea for his fellow conservatives to get Rosie O'Donnell fired for recent remarks she made.

"I'm calling for conservatives to take on Rosie O'Donnell," DeLay said during an interview with CNN. "She criticized and ridiculed Chinese-Americans, she accused the president of being responsible for 9/11. Let's now start calling for her resignation."

He also recently penned an article on titled "If the Left Takes Imus, We’ll Take Rosie."

DeLay's comments come just as Don Imus ' career was brought to a screeching halt after he referred to the Rutgers women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos."

O'Donnell responded to DeLay on her blog with a post titled "Tommy D," calling him a "criminal" and "sad slug," and also says his claims about her 9/11 comments are wrong. She then goes on to post a wikipedia transcript of Delay's indictments for illegal acceptance of funds while he was U.S. House Majority Leader.

O'Donnell's spurned quite a bit of controversy lately. She recently questioned the cause of collapse for World Trade Center 7, a building near the Twin Towers that collapsed eight hours after the planes first hit. That led to a feud between O'Donnell and Fox News host Bill O'Reilly.

Before the O'Reilly spat, O'Donnell and Donald Trump were involved in a back-and-forth feud after O'Donnell criticized Donald Trump 's ethics during the Miss USA scandal. Trump shot back at her, mocking her weight and looks.

The timing of this Imus

The timing of this Imus controversy is more than a little suspicious. Imus has repeatedly made racist and inflammatory remarks on his program throughout the years, indeed far worse than the Nappy hoes remark. Why pick now to take him to task for his hate speech?

Here's a blast from the past:

Palestinians Called 'Stinking Animals' on MSNBC's 'Imus'
Muslims urged to demand apology for hate-filled remarks

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 11/18/04) – A prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group today called for an apology from the MSNBC cable television network over comments on its "Imus in the Morning" program that referred to Palestinians as "stinking animals" and suggested that they all be killed.

The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) also urged that the program's host, Don Imus, be reprimanded for failing to challenge his colleagues’ inflammatory remarks. CAIR, which says it received numerous complaints about the comments, quoted a transcript of Imus’ November 12th program in which he and his on-air colleagues engaged in the following discussion about live coverage of Palestinian President Yasser Arafat's funeral:

DON IMUS: They're (the Palestinians) eating dirt and that fat pig wife of his is living in Paris.
COLLEAGUE: They’re all brainwashed, though. That’s what it is. And they're stupid, to begin with, but they’re brainwashed now. Stinking animals. They ought to drop the bomb right there, kill ‘em all right now…
IMUS: Well, the problem is we have (reporter) Andrea (Mitchell) there; we don't want anything to happen to her.
COLLEAGUE: Oh, she's got to get out. Andrea, get out and then drop the bomb and kill everybody…
COLLEAGUE: Look at this. Animals. Animals!

This is not the first time Imus has been involved in a controversy over anti-Arab and Islamophobic remarks. As early as 1985, he was forced to apologize for referring to Arabs as "goat-humping weasels." (Sunday Mail, 4/21/85) He has also been criticized for using the derogatory term "raghead." (Accuracy in Media) In a reference to the crash of an Iranian airliner earlier this year that killed 43 passengers, Imus said, "When I hear stories like that, I think who cares.” He then stated: "Too bad it wasn't full of Saudi Arabians." (National Iranian American Council)

The Eleventh Day of Every Month

We saw all this

We saw all this "hate-speech" bs coming with a telescope.

What the criminally insane Tommy-boy is saying is that a backroom deal was struck: you take an Imus and we'll raise you a Rosie. Professional wrestling wins the day yet again.

The racist hatemongering on right wing radio is unparalled. Tommy himself would bring back Jim Crow in a heartbeat, and think he was being magnanimous. Why is he granted a shred of credibility in the public arena? If HE can be rehabilitated... Oh, wait. There's Ollie North!

You know what's really funny? Disney World is publicly hosting gay weddings, and you don't hear a peep about ABC's connection from the gay-fearing foamers. They're giving it a pass to get to Rosie.

Excuse me while I go have a little chat with the Cheshire Cat, followed by a quick cuppa with the Mad Hatter.

yeah, well, in case you

yeah, well, in case you haven't noticed, it's perfectly ok to hate Arabs and Muslims in this country and call for them all to be killed.That just the way things ought to be, right? Nothing is done about that, because it's not even considered a problem.

Good point


AOL is slanted...they admit it.

NOTE: Poll results are not scientific and reflect the opinions of only those users who chose to participate. Poll results are not reflected in real time.

I voted anyway and left a comment as requested...but only because Rosie Rocks!

AOL is slanted far Reich

because only far Reich wing idiots use AOL.

If they asked on AOL "Should Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, etc be fired" for saying far worse than Imus.
It would be a 90% NO.

Sadly this country is as divided today as it was during the civil war.

hate to say i told you

hate to say i told you so...............

As an Asian guy

I could give a crap about Rosie's ching chong thing. It wasn't done out of hate, unlike calling people nappy-headed whores(yes, whores). If she said Asians are slant-eyed subhumans, then there would be a problem. Until that day, though, she's a truth soldier. Tom DeLay should stop talking for Asians. I know he doesn't give a crap about them and is only using that incident for his own agenda.

Of course Tom Delay doesn't

Of course Tom Delay doesn't give a shit about asians. Any one else here seen the video footage of him visiting those sweat shops being run by China? I can't recall the name of the islands but that scumbag was taking donations from them. Big surprise. He needs to be doin' some hard time making license plates for his ex-constituents. What the hell is he still doin runnin around on the loose??

"... In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual." (Galileo Galilei, 1564 - 1642)

fine then,

Delay is obviously paying back his favors in doing this shill spin. this just shows us all how desperate they are to spin this around. this may be a sign that the ranks are running thin. that was obviouse to me when danny partridge had to play spokesperson for the NWO.

Huckabee: If Imus gets

Huckabee: If Imus gets fired, Rosie O'Donnell and Bill Maher should be too
By DAN GEARINO, Courier Des Moines Bureau
JOHNSTON --- Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee said Friday that if Don Imus' comments are offensive enough to get him fired, then many other media personalities should go too, including Rosie O'Donnell and Bill Maher.

Imus was fired from CBS radio Thursday for his comments about the Rutgers University women's basketball team.

"If Imus is going to get fired, then there's a lot of other people that need to go out the door. Rosie (O'Donnell) has probably got to go. Bill Maher has to go. Gosh, half of talk radio and television has to go," Huckabee said.

Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, made the comments as he began a weekend of campaigning in central Iowa. O'Donnell and Maher have drawn fire over the years for their comments critical of President Bush and of conservatives.



Huckabee said Imus' comments were "inexcusable" and "wrong," but he shouldn't be held to a different standard that other commentators.

"What made it so bad, worse than a normal kind of thing, was that it was directed at amateur athletes and college students and specific college students," he said.

At the same time, Huckabee had criticism for two of Imus' critics, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

"Perhaps what's most offensive is that of all the people to lead the charge, here are two people that have a long history of making outrageous statements and getting away with it," he said.

Can someone explain why this man's opinion matters?

"So where is the oil going to come from?... The Middle East, with two-thirds of the world's oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies."

Richard Cheney - Chief Executive Of Halliburton


In fact, I sort of thought, or hoped, that he was in prison.

He should be...

There's no question of that.

"So where is the oil going to come from?... The Middle East, with two-thirds of the world's oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies."

Richard Cheney - Chief Executive Of Halliburton

See that's the thing. These

See that's the thing. These scumbags disappear from the media spotlight for a while to allow the population's ire with them to subside. Then they come back in as if everything is peachy keen and they never sold out their country.

"... In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual." (Galileo Galilei, 1564 - 1642)

Tom DeLay's opinion doesn't matter because...

...he is a dick, desparate for attention.

Freedom of speech.

Say goodbye to freedom of speech. This is another salvo in a battle to take more of our rights. As long as we have this precious gift of free speech we are obligated to defend it.
"Without free speech no search for truth is possible... no discovery of truth is useful... Better a thousandfold abuse of free speech than denial of free speech. The abuse dies in a day, but the denial slays the life of the people, and entombs the hope of the race."
British social reformer (1833-1891)
Peace, Phaedrus.

What does Tom know?

Tom Delay is a an expert on the subject of Pest Control and Politicians (the same thing, really), so when they wheel him out, look out for the pump sprayer. Talk about vermin...

Think Positive

I doubt very much if Rosie will get fired but if she did think about the backlash. It would just bring 9/11 truth to the fore front. One thing about Rosie she isn't a meek little lamb. I am sure she would have something to say about it. These fools don't think. Given enough rope, they will hang themselves...........It looks to me like they are getting desperate.

Tom Delay abused his title in Congress

to his advantage. This appears to be an attempt to use Rosie as a scapegoat to regain credibility for himself.
Seems that Delay hasn't changed, he's still a rat.

The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles.

Who are you going to listen to?

Are you going to listen to a criminal? Or Rosie?

Grand jury indictments
U.S. house majority leader DeLay indicted, steps down temporarily
On September 8, 2005, a federal grand jury indicted TRMPAC, which allegedly accepted an illegal political contribution of $100,000 from the Alliance for Quality Nursing Home Care and the Texas Association of Business, on four charges, including unlawful political advertising, unlawful contributions to a political committee and unlawful expenditures such as those to a graphics company and political candidates
On September 28, 2005, a Travis County grand jury operating under Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle indicted DeLay for conspiring to violate Texas state election law stemming from issues dealing with his involvement in TRMPAC. Texas law prohibits corporate contributions in state legislative races. The indictment charged that TRMPAC accepted corporate contributions, laundered the money through the Republican National Committee, and directed it to favored Republican candidates in Texas.
On September 30, 2005, in response to a motion to dismiss his initial indictment, Earle sought a second indictment of DeLay from a second grand jury. That jury refused to indict. On October 3, 2005, Earle sought and received a new indictment of DeLay from a third grand jury in Austin on charges of conspiracy and money laundering. The next day, in a written statement, Earle publicly admitted that he had presented the case to three grand juries, and that one of the three had refused to indict DeLay. Earle said that he had presented the new money-laundering charge to another grand jury because the previous grand jury had expired. DeLay’s lawyers said that Earle should not have waited to make the statement until after 5 P.M. that day. DeLay’s attorneys later filed a motion in court to have the latest indictment thrown out, charging that Earle had coerced the grand jury and that he had illegally discussed grand jury information and had encouraged others to do the same.
Also on October 3, DeLay’s lawyers filed a motion to throw out the charge of conspiracy to violate election law as fraudulent, claiming it was a violation of the U.S. Constitution’s ban on ex-post facto applications of law. DeLay’s lawyers claim that, in 2002, the crime of conspiracy did not apply to Texas election law. However, George Dix, a law professor at the University of Texas at Austin, said that charges of criminal conspiracy could legally be applied to any felony (including violation of election law) committed prior to the 2003 law. He characterized the 2003 change cited by DeLay’s lawyers as a clarification of existing law, saying, “It isn’t unheard of–the Legislature passing a law to make clear what the law is.”
Because the Texas Penal Code defines laundered money only as money gained as the “proceeds of criminal activity”, DeLay’s lawyers maintain that misuse of corporate donations, even if it occurred, could not constitute money laundering.
On October 19, 2005, a Texas court issued a warrant for DeLay’s arrest. DeLay surrendered at the Harris County, Texas jail the next day, was booked, was photographed, was fingerprinted, and posted a $10,000 bond.He appeared in court on October 21, 2005.
On November 3, 2005 Pat Priest, a “semi-retired” judge, was chosen to preside over the case.On November 22, 2005 DeLay filed a motion to dismiss the charges against him.On December 5, 2005 Judge Priest dismissed one count, conspiracy to violate election law, but let stand two counts alleging money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering.. On April 19, 2006, the Texas Third Court of Appeals upheld the decision. On May 19, 2006 prosecutors filed an appeal to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, the state’s highest criminal court, to reinstate the conspiracy indictment.
