Apology, schmopology — fire David Letterman!

by CynthiaYockey on June 17, 2009

Yes, I know David Letterman apologized a second time on Monday, June 15. But just for the raping-the-fourteen-year-old-no-wait-the-eighteen-year-old-new-mother-right-in-front-of-her-own-mother joke. Just for that one joke. Not for calling 14-year-old Willow a prostitute (“keep her away from Elliot Spitzer”) on Tuesday, June 9. Not for calling characterizing Gov. Palin’s great beauty as a “slutty flight attendant” look, nor his insane rant about the evil type of flight attendant Gov. Palin would be.

Yes, I know Gov. Palin graciously accepted Letterman’s apology on Tuesday, June 16.

Yes, I know that Al Sharpton is trying to frame his successful campaign to get Don Imus fired as right and just because he, Sharpton, was protecting an entire race, while the campaign to get Letterman fired is invalid because Letterman’s remarks were only directed at three individuals and therefore not offensive. Sharpton is wrong. Letterman was sexist. His malicious remarks and sham apologies were an attack on all women. And he was particularly sexist and degrading toward a woman he hated, a woman he wanted to goad and bait by publicly humiliating and attacking her teen-age daughters in order to damage her politically.

I also know Jim Treacher is calling for everyone just to get along now. No, Jim, wrong call. Even Michelle Malkin, who is one of the most courageous persons on the planet and who ought to know better because this kind of all-out assault is so frequently used against her by both men and women on the Left, is only calling for viewers to change the channel. Big Hollywood, which linked my post calling for Letterman to be fired early yesterday, went all squishy by the evening and was more concerned with REAL problems, like someone getting on Letterman to spout global warming dogma.

No, no, no, no, no, NO!

Letterman is a shameless, relentless, sexist bully. His insults did not just attack Gov. Palin and her daughters. They were a warning to uppity women everywhere that scorched-earth destruction would be their fate WHILE ONLOOKERS LAUGHED if they EVER disagree with David Letterman and his pals on the Left. Uppity women not only can count on being attacked personally, but just in case they are brave enough to face attacks on themselves, they have been served notice that their innocent children now are hostages and will be harmed for their mothers’ political beliefs. THAT IS HOW CRIME FAMILIES OPERATE!!!

Little Miss Attila explains the problem with Letterman’s sexism best:

This is American Sharia, assholes. The practitioners of Sharia in Muslim countries are at least consistent in their contempt for women and in their practice of gender apartheid: you, on the other hand, want sexual slavery for some women in this country; others, whose opinions you prefer, can live in relative peace and freedom. You will allow it.

If you are giving women and girls the “gift” of not being badgered for being female, and threatened with misogyny and sexual assault, they are not truly free-only living in a state of grace, contingent upon performing the right tricks, spouting leftist verbiage like seals at Sea World, balancing balls on their noses in the hopes of getting fish thrown into their mouths.

And any woman who doesn’t understand this fundamental truth about the misogynists living among them could be in for a rude awakening at any point, because that attitude will infect those who harbor it.

I also predicted this week that if we are too lazy and foggy about our priorities to do the consistent, persistent work to get Letterman fired, that there will be millions more emboldened to imitate him and make our lives a hell. Bill Maher’s nasty remarks about Sarah Palin on his HBO show on Friday night prove that point.

Stop the abuse! Stop the intimidation of women! Don’t let bullies get away with attacking the innocent children of the people they hate to cow them into toeing their ideological line.

Nip it! Nip it in the bud! FIRE DAVID LETTERMAN NOW!!!


I put most of my time today into answering comments and did not finish researching my post gathering all the Letterman sponsor contact data and putting it into tables so it can be mailmerged. To get started anyway, go to HillBuzz here and FireDavidLetterman.com here.


Yes, as a matter of fact, I AM relentless in my pursuit of a goal. But I only want Letterman fired. Over at The Other McCain they are made of sterner stuff and are posing the question, “Who will rid me of this gap-toothed comedian?” And while I was there I saw Smitty had some excellent advice for young Steven Crowder, a callous and unfunny hack who lectured his betters yesterday at Big Hollywood because he is OK with humor that intimidates and bullies women. Word, Steven: (1) to expound on humor convincingly, you must HAVE a sense of humor — a snotty sense of superiority is not a substitute; and (2), if you do not know why Letterman should be fired for his malicious and unfunny attacks, you do not understand the problem and should step aside and get out of the way of people who do.


Gay Patriot — thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Bravo, Ms. Yockey. Perhaps if we try hard enough it might be safe for my grandchildren to just turn on the TV someday. If we can make them afraid for their jobs they might, someday stop insulting half the nation.

You’re awesome Cynthia. Going wobbly on firing Letterman illustrates the problem with conservatism as a movement. We understand all about incentives and disincentives in tax policy and dealing with dictators, but are blind to the fact that they also apply in how we advance our political aims. Letterman must go so that conservatives are not disuaded from running for public office. If concern for subjecting their families to Letterman’s type of public abuse tips the scales for 10, 20 or 30% of our people against runnning for office, our pool of talent is much diminished and our cause suffers. If Letterman survives, all we’ve done is tone down his abuse a bit and only for a time. But if we follow through and destroy his remaining career over it, everyone else in media and particularly the MSM heads will know there are consequences to slandering GOP families. Being at the end of his career with money to spare, there’s little downside concsience-wise in his being the scalp we take.

Thank you!

Letterman has a five-year-old son with a long-time partner he married in March. He is 62 and has had a quintuple heart bypass. If it occurs to him that he needs to spend time with his family and focus on his health, and retires IMMEDIATELY, say, by Friday, June 19, 2009 — I’m a great believer in being specific about objectives — well, everybody’s a winner.
