GREAT DEBATES: Dr. Laura Schlessinger’s N-word rant

You really need to listen to Dr. Laura’s conversation with her caller to understand how bizarre her conversation is.  While her spewing the ‘N’ word is upsetting to most, what I disliked was her dismissal of her caller’s feelings.  Let’s talk after you listen:

FULL AUDIO: Dr. Laura Schlessinger’s N-word rant.

Ok.  First of all, I believe the caller is right to feel irritated by the constant comments about her race.  Imagine if the comments were focused on other things – “what do fat people think” or “you’re a stay at home mom that doesn’t work, so”, it’s the consistent chipping away of a person’s confidence when couching a question before a response is required. She’s supposed to be a mental health therapist, but she appears to require one herself. What I actually took away from the whole conversation is that she hates Obama. Too simplistic? Is it more sinister than that? Hmmm…I think Obama needs to set up a beer summit with her.

  1. I think you are exactly correct! I have lost a lot of respect for Dr. Laura and think her time should be up on talk radio.
    That caller’s husband should be the one who puts a stop to the name calling with his friends in my opinion. What kind of husband allows his friends to talk like that in front of his wife? If Dr. Laura would have gone down this obvious road (even I know this and I am not a Dr), she would not be in the position she is in today.
    This wasn’t about HER it was about her CALLER! She used this call as a way to vent her own feelings in my opinion!

    Great website!!!

    • I agree!! The caller’s question was so valid. I feel so bad, first that she reached out to call Dr. Laura for advice (perhaps she deserves part blame:)) and she thought she would get some back up from her.

      Thanks!!
