Ignored Story - More Liberal Hypocrisy From Hillary Clinton

Here is yet another story you most definitely won't see in the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper. After Don Imus made his now famous quote about the Rutgers women's basketball team, Hillary-ous jumped on the bandwagon, and sent out a signed e-mail saying that Imus' words "showed a disregard for basic decency and were disrespectful and degrading to African Americans and women everywhere."

However, apparently that outrage only manifests itself when campaign money isn't involved. On March 31st, Hillary-ous attended a fund raiser event for her campaign hosted by Timbaland, a hip-hop producer and performer who is known for his misogynistic lyrics. The hypocrisy was noted by Colbert I. King in the Washington Post.

Put me in the camp of those who implore Sen. Hillary Clinton to give it back -- "it" being the reported $800,000 that's sitting in her presidential campaign coffers thanks to a fundraiser hosted in her honor March 31 in the Pinecrest, Fla., home of a huge Clinton fan who refers to himself as Timbaland.

In response to my questions, Clinton campaign spokesman Blake Zeff said in an e-mail this week that it cost $1,000 just to get into Timbaland's fundraiser, that about 200 guests were on hand and that the senator was accompanied by former president Bill Clinton.

You would not be reading about Clinton or about Timbaland -- who entered this vale of tears 36 years ago in Norfolk under the name Timothy Mosley -- were it not for the fact that he is a well-heeled hip-hop producer and noted performer of the kind of misogynistic and denigrating lyrics that informed Don Imus's derogatory comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team.

Mrs. Clinton, you may recall, took umbrage at Imus's remarks, branding them "small-minded bigotry and coarse sexism." His words, she said in an e-mail to supporters, "showed a disregard for basic decency and were disrespectful and degrading to African Americans and women everywhere."

Good for her, I say, except it must be asked why she was down in Florida making nice to -- and pocketing big bucks from -- a rapper whose obscenity-laced lyrics praise violence, perpetuate racist stereotypes and demean black women.

Don't keep reading if you're offended by lyrics much worse than Imus ever uttered on the radio.

Check out Timbaland's latest album, "Timbaland Presents Shock Value."

Here are lyrics from the track "Come and Get Me":

"Nigga Your Time Is Up, I Aint Come To Kid You
I Knew You Niggas Was Dumb, But How Dumb Is You . . .
I'm A Ride Or Die Nigga, I Be Tearing [expletive] Up
We Aint Like Them Other Fools, Who Don't Compare To Us
All The Hoes Love A Nigga, They be Backing It Up
But Me I Love Money I Be Stacking It Up . . .
I'm Rich I Can Pay To Have You Six Feet Deep (Nigga)"

And from his track "Kill Yourself":

" . . . most of u rap niggas is hoes to me,
wherever u from
the question I ask
is do u think I give a [expletive] . . .
u mad at me? cuz im getting rich,
well put the pistol to ur head and empty the clip, pop nigga!"

And how about this little ditty, "Considerate Brotha," from an earlier recording:

". . . Hoes coming up short? Hoes finna get cursed out!
. . . Slam the mask out of these hoes and they say, 'What is that, velvet?'
And they betta meet they quota, betta yet betta meet they deadline . . . I'm a pimp all around
A pimp of the town -- we pimpin 'em up, HOES DOWN."

It could not be determined whether Timbaland shared his musical talents with the Clintons while they were in his home collecting money.

This much I do know: If Hillary Clinton wasn't playing a hypocrite in the Don Imus episode and is, in fact, a leader who matches her lofty ideals with stand-up behavior, she should return the $800,000 Timbaland raised for her at his swank affair.

Right. What's the chance of that happening?

Now, let's ask the usual question that I ask in a case like this; what if this had been a Republican? What if this had been Romney, McCain, or Giuliani? How much coverage do you think the MSM and the Fish Wrapper would be giving to the story? It would be front page headline fodder for days! But, since it's a Democrat, the Fish Wrapper feels the need to protect her and find some sort of excuse as to why it wasn't worth covering.

No liberal bias here, is there?
