Obstructed View; Manilow won’t Work with Hasselbeck

Barry Manilow, an aged singer who is 30 years past his prime, was scheduled to perform on the daily gab fest known as “The View.” Barry has gotten his panties in a wad because Elisabeth Hasselbeck is on the show and she has committed the most terrible crime of all, having conservative views. Barry does not like conservative views so he decided that he would not be on the show. I think this is pretty childish and demonstrates once again how liberals are not about open discussion. They only believe in tolerance so long as one espouses their views. Dissenting opinions or, gasp, conservative views are taboo.

I was not aware that they were having Manilow on the show to discuss politics. I thought he was going on to promote his album Greatest Songs of the 70s. Like the singer, the album (CD) is 30 years past its time and, unless one wears polyester suits and disco dances, should be avoided at all costs! Anyway, what was he afraid of? If he does not like her couldn’t he just sing his song, answer a few questions and then be on his way with the knowledge that he got a lot of publicity for his snooze-fest album? This 64 year old relic said this of Hasselbeck; “I strongly disagree with her views. I think she’s dangerous and offensive. I will not be on the same stage as her.” I imagine this twit found Rosie to be charming and informed. If anyone is offensive it is Rosie who is, according to her childhood recollections, only dangerous to herself.

I wonder if Barry did this to generate more publicity than he might not have otherwise gotten? It is more likely that he is afraid of Hasselbeck and worried she might kick his decrepit butt all over the place. It is obvious to me that this liberal has no guts, he is a coward, the same kind of loser that kids in high school probably beat up for fun. Contrast this with Bill O’Reilly who went on the show and had a discussion with all the gals including Rosie. Bill was not afraid (though he is about a foot taller than all of them including Manilow) and he handled himself well. I know he finds Rosie offensive but he still went on the show. Imagine how it would have played out had he canceled for the same reasons Manilow did.

Barry, Looks Like We Made It to a point where liberal men are afraid of conservative women (think Edwards and Coulter). I don’t imagine you will be missed. It is not like they Can’t Smile Without You. Even Now, there are people laughing at the cowardice and insanity of your childish behavior though some of the idiots commenting on the original story are abusive of Hasselbeck. Don’t worry about a gig though, maybe the Copacabana needs a washed up singer. If not, there is always American Idol and their annoying practice of employing washed up singers to coach the kids.

I still cannot figure out why Elisabeth stays on this show. Maybe it is the only work she can find but hell, her husband makes good money in the NFL. Why on Earth would she work where the women act like men (Rosie) and the men like women (Manilow)? She should try to find work where it is easier to distinguish the men from the women.

    Do you know how much I love that Barry Manilow is a leftard?!


    They can have him!

    Elisabeth Hasselbeck may be many things--in fact, to people of particularly weak constitution, I imagine her simplistic political views might even be offensive. One thing she isn't, though, is "dangerous." But the man who gave us…

    Barry, Barry, Barry, what are you hiding? Are you so afraid, and insecure to think that Elizabeth will intimidate you? Can’t you handle yourself? Were you there to promote your music or discuss politics? Apparently you are angry because you asked “The View” several weeks ago to have anyone BUT Elizabeth interview you and they agreed. However, now that they have changed their mind, you are “scared” of Elizabeth? Wow what publicity you are getting! I don’t think you “played your cards right” this time buddy.

    I understand that Barry is good buds with RollyPolly. I guess he can kiss any profits on the new CD good bye. I wonder if he will go home and break any fingers? I think by his face job he can give Jacko a run for his money. Looks a little like parchment paper. I guess that’s why his ears are in the back of his head.

    I have a comment about today’s show in which one of the hosts, Ms.Hasselbeck, described growing up in a household where racism was not known to her until recently. I believe she and many people who are raised the same way are the reasons why America has been a threatening place to live for all black people, rich and poor. And it is solely done by the notion that systemic racism does not exist and that Black people need to get over slavery.

    I have some eye opening news for Ms. Hasselbeck. The Gena 6 case is one of many cases where Blacks have been the victims of systemic racism in many facets of American life. For instance, try reliving the events of 9/11 everyday of your life and now try to psychologically remain sane and productive through it for more than 400 years systemic racism nonstop with very small change in your social, political, economic, and family life.

    What you are doing has been coined “White Supremacy “. It’s when someone such as yourself can only interpret your own life events and gauge everyone else base on how you feel at the time. For example, if you are happy about current events in regards to say the public educational system in New York, then everybody must be happy because your personal life and experience with such system is a reflection of everybody.

    That would only be true if everybody’s children attended the same school and lived in the same good, wholesome American neighborhood. In reality, this is not the case due to the disproportionate amount of Black and Brown children from inner city ‘hoods who live in districts that have been systemically underfunded and are dangerous.

    I would like for you and people who think like you to open your eyes to systemic racism in this country and be aware of it, so that we as Americans can put a stop to it when it displays itself in places like The Gena 6, the work place, and the justice system. Together we can make America the country her forefathers intended her to be, pluralistic and inclusive in all areas in life.

    Well Lee,
    I know racism and I saw it growing up. Many people I have known over the years were/are racists and they come in all colors. I do not believe that school systems are good but I disagree about them being underfunded.

    Baltimore City is hugely populated with blacks and the schools have lots of blacks in them (nearly 70%) but they receive more money per student then many of the other jurisdiction in the state. What you need to tackle is the large number of black households that have one parent and men who father many children with a number of women.

    You should also stamp out black on black crime because blacks are killing off their race.

    Coined white supremacy or not the coined phrase is wrong. Certainly people look at life situations through their own eyes but those of us who are sane know that there are different life experiences for many people. The fact is, blacks are their own worst enemies at this point in time.
