I haven't had a lot of time to post this week, but earlier in the week a story hit me and I had to stop and post on it. CNN's Jack Cafferty angered Chinese Americans in Hollywood because he said the Chinese government was delivering crap, I' m paraphrasing but that was the gist of it. He did not go after Chinese people, but protest hit the fan anyway. I thought this was a bit silly then, but now this new chapter is way over the silly season.
"Cafferty said the United States imported Chinese-made "junk with the lead paint on them and the poisoned pet food" and added: "They're basically the same bunch of goons and thugs they've been for the last 50 years."
For that the Chinese government wants an apology and two Chinese women are now suing CNN for $1.3 Billion, what they say amounts to $1 for every Chinese citizen he offended. $1, I'm going to leave that bit of obviousness alone
The other day comedian Rush Limbaugh called for riots, killings and burning of cars at the upcoming DNC. He did so to the tune of "I'm dreaming of a White Christmas". You can take a guess as to why. But no one is calling for his head, or suing or anything. he called for mass violence on the radio, nothing. Jack Cafferty says the obvious, a fact that the entire world would agree with all hell breaks lose and folks are owed a dollar.
I'm sure he wasn't thinking of something like this when he titled his book, but man, it's like the guy is a sooth sayer.
