Where The Hell Is Al Sharpton?

Bad-boy radio hosts Opie and Anthony yesterday topped even their infamous 2002 "Sex in St. Pat's" stunt, serving up a homeless man's profane declaration that he'd like to rape Condoleezza Rice, Laura Bush and Queen Elizabeth.

The graphic sequence on their XM Satellite Radio program showed that even in a medium with no restrictions on content, Opie and Anthony found a way to cross the line.

The actual comments were made by a guest the shock jocks call Homeless Charlie. As each woman's name came up, he said, "I'd love to f--- that b----."

They laughed as they imagined "the horror" in Rice's face and what it would be like to hold her down and punch her in the face.

The crude cracks came a month after CBS gave Don Imus the boot for calling members of the Rutgers University women's basketball team "nappy-headed ho's."

As an audio clip spread across the Internet, XM quickly issued a condemnation. "We deplore the comments made on today's 'Opie & Anthony Show,'" said an XM spokesman.

Opie and Anthony themselves offered an apology yesterday evening:

"We take very seriously the responsibility that comes with our creative freedom and regret any offense that this segment has caused."

At the State Department, spokesman Sean McCormack shook his head in disgust but declined to comment on the insult to the secretary of state. A White House spokesman declined to "dignify that with a response."

CBS Radio, where Opie and Anthony are heard earlier each morning over WFNY (92.3 FM) on a different show with much stricter content guidelines, breathed an almost audible sigh of relief.

"Fortunately, we have standards that did not, and would not, ever let something like this make our air," it said.

XM said nothing yesterday about disciplinary action, but industry observers said the offensive remarks had the potential to derail a lot more than the deejays' jobs.

XM and Sirius Satellite are seeking the Federal Communications Commission's approval for a merger. Tom Taylor, editor of the trade magazine Inside Radio, noted this could place the issue of content on the table.

"XM and Sirius don't want any regulation," he said. "But it's come up in four congressional hearings - and at this point, the merger is such a close call any issue could become important."

Opie and Anthony had "Homeless Charlie" on their WFNY show earlier yesterday. While many of his comments were bleeped out, he talked about how he "punches old b----es in the head" to steal their money.

Anthony, whose full name is Anthony Cumia, called that comment "horrible and awful," but said it illustrated a point about radio today. "You can talk about beating up old ladies and nobody stops you, but make one insulting joke about an ethnic group and you're fired."

Opie (aka Gregg Hughes) and Anthony have complained lately about restrictions on their terrestrial radio content, a subject with which they are familiar.

They were taken off New York's WNEW by CBS in August 2002 for running a contest in which they said two listeners had sex in St. Patrick's Cathedral.

They were hired by XM in 2004 and in 2006 rehired by CBS for WFNY.

Michael Harrison, editor of the trade magazine Talkers, said they could now face the same pressure Imus came under, even though their bit aired on satellite.

"In both cases," said Harrison, "FCC regulations don't matter, because they weren't violated. Those involved are still subject to public reaction - a reaction that now is amplified by the Internet."

WOW!! This goes Wayyyyy over the line of a "Nappy Headed Ho" comment. This is an OUTRAGE!! Why the the hell isnt Al Sharpton out there marching and protesting and going after CBS and saying that Opie and Anthony need to get fired because of remark's made about Raping Condi Rice? Not to mention Laura Bush and Queen Elizabeth! I mean if Sharpton is such an iconic figure in bringing people that say anything about anyone in his race down and getting them fired, how about going after these two assholes? How about it Al? Where are you Al? Or doesnt Condi Rice count in your book? Does she not count because she is a black Republican woman?

Well, they did apologize.
Shock jocks will say and do anything. They get called on it. They apologize. That makes everything OK.

The Rev’s Al Sharpton and Jesse Jerkson the 2 deadbeat lying sacks of crap are the only ones that have stepped forward as a so called "leader of the black people" since the white ones I guess aren't enough for them . And are right there when a back person is offended ex. Don Imus and the nappy head Ho’s of the Rutgers Basket Ball team... Why are they NOT out there OUTRAGED when a Black woman like Condi Rice was so much more insulted?
Is it because she is part of the Bush Administration?
What was said about Condi Rice was far worse than what Imus said. And Al and Jess the Bobby Twins are no where to be found or heard!.
These 2 morons Opie and Anthony laughed as they vividly described the potential rape scene between Rice and Homeless Charlie. Then went on to express his desire to rape Laura Bush, and Queen Elizabeth

I wonder what the Media etc. would say if they did the same thing to Hillary?

The problem with guys like this Opie and Anthony is the younger generation have become desensitized. I have an example of this at where I work. There is a young man about 22 years old that listens to these shock jocks and this particular young man has the ability to draw a distinction between satire and incitement but he tells me that some of his friends that are the same age group are not quite as astute at being able to seperate satire and incitement and are likely to take some things Opie and Anthony seriously.

Just like I had never heard about Imus until the "nappy headed ho" thing, I've never heard of Opie and Anthony before either. I could have spent my entire life without ever having heard of them!

It seems they will get away with it because the station is paid for by charging those who listen to it. I believe that anyone who wants to pay good money to listen to that sort of crap is a brain dead low life and almost as bad as Al Sharpton! I say "almost" because Sharpton isn't brain dead. He "chooses" to be a low life!

Gayle, you would have been much better off if you had never heard of them. They got thrown off the public airwaves for broadcasting a contest where people do the craziest stuff. The actually had a couple have sex in St Patricks Cathedral in New York City. That was the final straw and they got the boot.

Now they turned up on XM radio which makes me mad because I have XM in my pick up truck and love it because I can listen to any kind of music that strikes my fancy or listen to the rest of Hannity and Colmes on my way to work. I'm paying to have these morons on the air and I wrote to XM about it and as usual got no response.

It seems no matter what you do or where you go there is always some liberal a--hole trying their hardest to screw things up for the rest of the regular folks.

I think al Sharpton is a microphone ho, he'll do and say anything that will get one shoved in front of his face.

Icon of the moonbat left and anti-white bigot brigade that he is, Irreverent Alphonse knows his place -- his job is to maintain the illusion of victimhood among fellow black Americans at the ruthless hands of Republicans, fomenting anti-white racism and helping to keep black voters in the Bush-hating Democrat camp.

If he was an honorable man (ech! What a thought!!!) or even one iota of a life form above the level of leech, he would leap aggressively into the arena and demand comeuppance for Opie & Anthonys' bizarre sleight of the Secretary-of-State.


It seems that successful conservative black people are viewed (officially) with contempt by Democrats and their soulless Step'nfetchits like Sharpton.

That's why Al, Jesse and their ilk never allow themselves to be trapped in front of journalists who will ask point-blank questions, and why we won't hear from Alphonse on why he has nothing to say in Condi's defense.

These are folks who have no problem selling out their own in exchange for some political chump change.

To be as PC as I can possibly be, I can only say that in my honest opinion, Al Sharpton is a maggot.

Well, yah, these guys are boneheaded losers (sorta like the two marketing geniuses who shut down the city of Boston a couple of months ago), and Al Sharpton is a maggot, and people should have enough sense not to say things like that, even if it shouldn't necessarily be illegal to say them.
On the other hand, Condoleezza Rice is like, totally hot.
PS Love the new wallpaper.
