62 year old creep makes rape jokes about Sarah Palin's daughter, predictable response follows (updated twice)

On his Tuesday show, 62-year old David Letterman joked about Sarah Palin's 14 year old daughter being raped by a member of the Yankees baseball team -- and since then, the silence from the MSM and leaders who should be speaking up has been deafening.



Can you imagine if Limbaugh made rape jokes about the daughters of Obama or Biden or Pelosi?
.
You'd think Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton would have something to say, based on their actions after the Imus/Rutgers scandal in 2007. After Imus made crass jokes about the physical appearance of some Rutgers basketball players, there was a national outcry. It was on the front pages of newspapers and all over the cable TV shows.
Barack Obama demanded that Imus be fired. Feminist Hillary Clinton traveled to Rutgers and demanded that people take what she called a "Rutgers' Pledge" against slurs on women, minorities and the defenseless.
"Will you be willing to speak up and say 'enough is enough' when women or minorities or the powerless are marginalized or degraded?" Clinton said. "Will you say there is no place for disrespectful language or bigotry to be seen as funny or clever?"

Evidently, Obama, Clinton, and the fake feminists at NOW aren't willing to speak up and say "enough is enough" when Sarah Palin and her 14 year old daughter are degraded.
.
Update: Nothing at the Sacramento Bee's web site about Letterman's demented joke, according to a search of the site I just did. Maybe the Anchorage Daily News is covering the story... I'll see what I can find.

Update #2: Letterman now claims he only meant to trash Palin's older daughter.

David Letterman's attempt at humor is sickening. He should be suspended and maybe even fired for such a joke. I don't think he used the word " rape", and I don't believe shes only 14, but nonetheless this is a sorry situation Letterman has put himself in. Not sure what it has to do with McClatchy, but maybe there is a slight connection somewhere.

If somebody called Obama's daughters crack whores, he would be fired ASAP.

Letterman should be fired by CBS!

Remember Don Imus? If he was fired, then so should Letterman.

Contessa Brewer tried to defend Letterman today and got her ass handed to her by some radio host. He made MSLSD look like fools. It was so bad she had to cut the mike.

The beacon of morality who had his own kid out of wedlock really has lots of moxie here....or was his girl friend knocked up by Alex Rodriguez at a baseball game. I sort of remember maybe it was....

Sex between A-Rod and a 14 year old would be rape. McClatchy not reporting the crass joke at all after the circus they made of the Imus crass joke, shows onece again their biased reporting, and if you don't see the connection, get back to your Kool-aid.

"But an even more disturbing fact, which Letterman may not have known, was that the daughter who accompanied Palin on her trip to New York was [14-year-old Willow] —not 18-year-old Bristol, the unwed mother of Palin's first grandchild."

"Now, many critics — including the Palins themselves – are slamming Letterman for jokes that they say make light of sexual abuse of an underage girl."

If memory serves this POS also found it humorous when Palin's church was torched. I'm betting he thought the church burnings in the south were a huge giggle.

The lesson to be learned is to never let these media pigs tell you what to say or criticize this blog for any content - any content.

"Letterman Says He Wasn't Talking About Palin's 14 Year-Old Getting Knocked Up at Game-- He Was Talking About Her 18 Year-Old ...Invites Her On Show
Oh, Okay...
Letterman was talking about Palin's 18 year-old not her 14 year-old getting knocked up in public at Yankee Stadium.
Thanks for clearing that up Dave."

"This was a joke and he made up for it. He is going to let Sara on the show. I thought is was important to be able to take a joke, Some people just don’t get it."

The above comment was made several times by the brain-dead. I guess they mean like Obama and Clinton got the Imus crass joke. What hypocrites!

Good comment, anyone can e-mail the sponsors about the tasteless garbage they pay for from Letterman.

I found a few links the Anchorage Daily News site. The Alaskanewsreader blog has a few links, but it's not set up so that I can link to them.

ADN links to a piece at Entertainment Weekly which has a pathetic "apology" -- the apology is actually another slam... Letterman claims he thought Palin's daughter was over 18, and then adds a back-hand slap at the Palins: "... Did I suggest that it was okay for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No."

Anonymous said...

So the old coot thinks raping an 18years old instead of a 14 year old makes his stupid remarks all right. What a scumbag he is. The liberal media will say nothing, he helped slam Gov. Palin and fawn over Obooma every chance he had before the election. He is as bad as a human gets, mean, ugly, and a biased liar that uses his show for free political messages for liberals.

Why not boycott CBS as well?

The liberal media needs Red State revenue to survive, so why not cut it off entirely?

You got that right, the part about the fake feminists, I mean. Just watch them depart a fake meeting. They look like a school of ugly, mean, plus sized whales. It looks to me as if lesbians have taken over the lame NOW group of fake females. Liberal has-been hags is all that is left of the true feminist movement.

7:52 PM Appreciate the list of advertisers. Boycott notices will be going out ASAP.

Has there ever been a more counter productive movement than the feminist movement. "I refuse to be treated as a sex object therefore I'm removing my undergarments and letting my dairy cannons flop around so you won't think of sex." Great, go for it honey. You guys who missed the beginnings of feminism really missed a show.

Shhhhhh! Them and the militant gay's are what brings democrats down. They keep trying to out absurd one another to the point normal democrats remember why they left with bags on their heads in the first place.

The way Obama's approval rate is dropping, they are the one two punch that will finish them.

Let them babble when they shouldn't and clam up when they should be yelling to high heaven.

First of all, get a grip. No one ever used the word "rape" in reference to the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez "knocking up" the Palin's 18-year-old daughter, who everyone knows has already been fornicating and had a baby out of wedlock. Only knee-jerk extremists used the word, which makes me wonder about the perverseness of their minds. Second, Letterman has made even more crass jokes about Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Dr. Phil, Monica Lewinsky and even Madonna, and no one ever complained. Get a life people. The talentless and politically inexperienced Palins are only trying to remain relevant to controlling people of hate and greed who seek to follow them. Bristol Palin has put herself in the public view by going on myriad TV shows to taut her self-righteous hypocritical views.

10:12, you're an idiot.

Letterman made jokes about children. When has Letterman made jokes about children.

And he made the jokes about the Plain's 14-year old child. You know what sex is with a 14-year old child? RAPE! It's called RAPE!

But hey, let's all call Obamababoon's daughters as ghetto crack whores! Get a grip!

Anonymous said...

Here is the big lie: Letterman was talking about Bristol Palin, who is 18 years old and an unwed mother, therefore, she is not a child. I watched the show in it's entirety and in context. Where do some of you people get your news? McClatchy? Fake News, with all those blathering idiotic wanna-be celebrities? Think for yourselves people. You're just repeating unfounded lies like automatons.

Anonymous said...

Uh no, Letterman was talking about the Palins' 14-year old daughter. He even said Willow, which is her name.

If Imus had to go, then so should Letterman.

Perhaps Obamababoon's daughters are crack whores.

Uh, no, he was speaking about Bristol, the 18-year-old. He makes that clear himself. In fact, I watched the entire show -- unlike nearly all the people writing on this blog who are main quoting word for word extremist bloggers or cable talk show hosts -- and that's who I knew he was talking about. The joke would make no sense if he were talking about the younger girl. If you are not a regular viewer of Dave Letterman, you would never understand the joke, nor are you qualified since you haven't heard the thousands of sexual innuendo jokes he has made about liberals, including Sean Penn, Oprah, Al Gore, and the Clintons.

Are any of the people you mention a teenager? Are you insane? Making rape jokes about a young teen is beyond the pale.

Boycott all his sponsors!
Write to CBS!
I can't believe anyone would admit to watching such a lowlife creep.

I think every parent with a teen daughter is enraged that an old media pedophile thinks that attacking either young teen girl is fair game for his sick audience. How could anyone of good character think this sort of smut is funny? I think the posters here that try to alibi his sickness probably are beyond help themselves. I feel sorry for you.

Anonymous said...

The letters to the sponsors are working. Posters are reporting that the companies are replying that they are reviewing Letterman’s unwarranted attacks on young women, and they certainly do not support comments of disrespect for any youngster parsed as comedy.

Tonight Letterman is going to make a joke about the Obama girls being streetwalkers in Paris. Hahaha, ain’t that a hoot? That makes just as much sense as his Palin joke. What a sad man he has become. Move on down the road Dave, your bitter inner child has taken you over.

Letterman is an old wretched liberal. His audience has long matched his low character. Moral people would have no part of his sort of foul so-called humor. I am glad his crassness came to light. Liberals have become mean and nasty people, and we can see that first hand once again. I would guess plenty of the biased journalists, now out of work, watched his show regularly. Loss of integrity does that to even once honest people. Bottom feeders all.

-Women's Advocacy Group
Leader Blasts Letterman's Jokes
About Palin, Calls for Apology-
Fox News
by Joshua Rhett Miller

The president of a national women's public policy group on Thursday blasted David Letterman's ''offensive'' jokes about Sarah Palin and her daughter and called on the CBS late-night host to formally apologize. ''There's a saying that out of the heart, the mouth speaks, and Letterman's statement reveals a pretty ugly reflection of who Letterman may be,'' Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America.

The liberal left seems to think they have found a loophole in common decency called comedy. See John Stewart, Bill Maher etc.

But ask Michael Richards just what liberals think about that loophole when someone says something they don’t like. And they call governor Palin a hypocrite.

Sarah Palin is a low-life despicable person, who will take every opportunity to try to advance her political career. And there are so many mindless angry ungodly people who fall for it hook, line and sinker. Few people watch late-night TV, much less Letterman, in the middle of the night. But she makes it a point to cry fowl -- out of the dozens of politicians who are made fun of by late-night comedians -- just to keep her 15 minutes going. She blasted Hillary Clinton when she complained of being picked on, yet Palin does the same and more time and again. Now she's even using her children as human shield -- just like the terrorists she's always deriding -- to pump up donations for her 2012 run for president. She's a disgrace and an unfit mother who claims to be Christian but she's constantly prostituting herself politically. She sickens all genuine Christians, since Christ never involved himself in the politics of the world and he ignored the insults he received.
