Hating on Chris Rock and Loving on that ole time conservative hate

As we all know, Independence day, traditionally capped off with a spectacular display of fireworks, is a holiday celebrating the birth of our nation.

The majestic aerial displays that illuminate the night skies from coast to coast of these United States represent a jubilant America declaring her freedom from Great Britain.

As John Adams wrote:

"The day will be most memorable in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, bonfires and illuminations (fireworks) from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."  source

However, Chris Rock -- like that drunk uncle at Thanksgiving dinner who insists on recalling family secrets of yesteryear -- in a tweet, tongue-in-cheek, set off his own fireworks by stating:

"Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren't free but I’m sure they enjoyed fireworks."

In most right-wing blogsphere worlds, Rock has certainly sparked a fiery storm:

In response to Rock’s joke, several people have taken to a wide variety of social networking sites to express their disappointment with the comedian, going as far as to say they intend to swear off his movies entirely. Others took their anger and fashioned it into a micro-blogging response of their own, many of which you can find at the bottom of this article.  source

But in his defense, Chris Rock says Chris Rock things:

Every town has the same two malls: the one white people go to and the one white people used to go to.

If you're black, you got to look at America a little bit different. You got to look at America like the uncle who paid for you to go to college, but who molested you. 

There's a lot of racism going on. Who's more racist, black people or white people? It's black people! You know why? Because we hate black people too! Everything white people don't like about black people, black people really don't like about black people, and there's two sides, there's black people and theres niggas. The niggas have got to go.  source

Chris Rock, as you see, has never conformed to the political correctness police from the left, right or black community. He tells it like it is and sometimes folks don't want to hear the inconvenient truth wrapped in his jokes.

On another note: this same folks hating on Rock, never seemed to muster the same amount of outrage when Tea Baggers, GOP leaders and Hate radio/TV continue to disrespect -- often with racial overtones -- our president.

Ted Nugent:

I’m beginning to wonder if it would have been best had the South won the Civil War.

Nugent warned that he would either be “dead or in jail” by this time next year, should President Obama win reelection in November. “We’ll be a suburb of Indonesia next year,” said Nugent.
Finally, Nugent concluded his attack on the Democratic party by saying that voters need to decapitate those politicians with whom the rock star disagrees. “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November,” said Nugent bluntly. “Any questions?”  source

Conservative His-storian David Barton:
He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-Biblical source
Fox Host Glen Beck (at the time he was the most watched program...he later parted ways with Fox but not for these on air comments):
This morning on Fox and Friends, Fox host Glenn Beck accused President Obama of being "a racist."
The group was discussing the recent Gates controversy, and Beck exclaimed that Obama has "over and over again" exposed himself as "a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture. I don't know what it is..."  source

GOP National Committee Chairperson Reince Priebus (he frequently calls the Obama anti-American):
Mitt Romney must be elected in November in order to "save America," arguing that if President Barack Obama gets reelected, "our way of life" is at stake.
"I don't think people are begging for another four years of this misery ... with a president who acts like he's not living on Earth. source

Chis Rock tells the truth via his jokes, the above clowns sell hate with no impunity!
