The Cancer At NBC Was Not Excised When Olbermann Was Fired

The Cancer At NBC Was Not Excised When OlberMann Got Fired

It is bad enough that the sport of Golf is struggling for ratings because of Tiger Woods’ fall from grace, but to compound said struggles with out of touch, inane, far left antics as displayed on NBC… when it deliberately edited out ‘God’ from the Pledge of Allegiance, was business insanity. Yes, it is true that NBC is no longer owned by General Electric and that the maestro of hate, Keith Olbermann, is in exile on Al Gore’s Network, but the cancer of Far-Left Liberal platitudes are so widespread, it is akin to a cancer that has metastasize.

Just in case you did not watch Golf over the weekend, let me enlighten you on what took place: before the start of the game, we saw and heard children reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, along with patriotic imagery like a soldier saluting the flag… but every time the children got to the part of the Pledge, which says, ‘One Nation Under God…’ it was apparently, deliberately omitted.

I want fair minded people to compare the outrage over Kobe Bryant, Joaquin Noah, and Tracy Morgan’s uttering of the gay slur, faggot, which caused all sort of upheaval… resulting in huge fines and fawning apologies to the outrage or lack thereof so far over NBC’s insult by omitting ‘God’ from the Pledge of Allegiance. I have no doubt that Comcast, the New owners of NBC, did not or do not condone such political correctness because it does not bode well for the business of viewership. Such a posture by the Far-Left of pleasing only the atheists is not a good business model because there are much more ‘God believers’ than they. Yet, I do not condone the tyranny of the many over the few like how the Far-Left subscribes to the tyranny of the few over the many, which is the norm on our academic campuses and in places like California and New York.

I am always amazed how ‘monkey knows which tree-limb to jump on’: case in point, next time - Sunday – when NASCAR is racing, you will notice that there is a preacher giving the invocation and ‘bigging up’ Jesus Christ; you will also notice that you will not hear any protests from, I supposed the spatter of atheists who attend the races, among the rest of the crowd. Somehow the sheer terror and emotional trauma of hearing God or especially 'Jesus’ name invoked is of no consequence during NASCAR races, some of which, ironically, are held in California and other ‘Far-Left’ enclaves – indeed, monkey does know which tree-limb to jump on. Perhaps, we do not hear any protest or the clarion calls to ban these preachers at NASCAR from invoking the Deity because these races are seen on other channels than NBC.

Unlike the Far-Left who is always calling for this person or that person to be fired…when he or she uttered a ‘code word’… I have no such desire for the producer (s) who gave his assent to the God omission from the Pledge of Allegiance, especially in these dire economic times, to be fired. I do hope though that these Far-Left denizens realize that no one had to force me not to say the “N,’ “B,’ or the “F’ word… though to my regret, I have done so in the past… I refrain from doing so now because it is not ‘Christian’ to do so – how about that irony.
