Bernhard Banned for Palin "Gang-Rape" Gag

10/2/2008 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Unlike Sandra Bernhard, not everyone thinks joking about gang-rape is high-larious.

The bigmouthed Bernhard just got axed from a benefit for a women's shelter because of her now-infamous "joke" that veep-seeker Sarah Palin would get "gang-raped by my big black brothers" when she came to NYC. "In light of our mission, we don't think violence against women is a laughing matter," says the PR rep of Rosie's Place.

Saucy Sandy's rep didn't immediately comment on the situation.

Bernhard is a disgrace. Real comedians don't have to use vulgar language to get laughs. She is pathetic.

As a person who is a victim of gang rape, Ms. Bernhard's comments were totally inapropriate and very degrading to me.
I wonder how she would like to have 8 men repeatidly rape her over and over. To even sugggest it in jest is beyond my comprehention. This woman is nothing but trash. I wouldn't with this to happen to anyone. Ms. Bernhard needs to remember that what goes around, comes around and she needs to shut her big fat mouth. If you haven't lived the horor of this, let me give a little insite to it. You wonder if this is ever going to end. You wonder if your going to live or die and when it's done and your left alone, you wish you could die. You wonder if they are going to come back again and there is no one, absolutly no one to protect you becuase you have no description of the men who did this. They are in black and wear masks but you will rmember their smell and their voices and what they put you through in the 2 hrs they inviated your life, forever and ever. If I were a evil person, I would wish this on her but I'm not because it's too horrific for a woman to have to live through.

Kevin B. ~ No my dear, I am the farthest thing from "poor white trash" as you so endearingly pointed out. I have no need to align myself with the rich white republicans as, I am one of them! Pull your head out of your a!! and step out of your sandbox for awhile. Look at the whole picture here and educate yourself. It is certainly a free country and you have the right to vote for whomever you please. Just don't come crying to anyone a few months after the inaguration if your "Uncle Tom" makes it to the white house.

Obama wants to be white so bad he can't see straight!

Since when is violence against women funny? Her joke had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with being an ignorant, unfunny, bitter and jealous has been.

To # 92 FigJam:

I don't think it should ever have been said about or to any woman regardless of her political leanings, her ethnicity, her hair color or shoe size. What made it even more revolting was the fact that it came out of the mouth of another woman.

There is nothing to joke about gang rape. I'm very much IN FAVOR of making fun of Palin, but this is simply not funny.

I can't stand Sara Palin (go Obama!), but honestly, Sandra Bernhard is just as vile and disgusting. And Sandra, dear, if you're reading this, at least Palin looks hotter than you do. Why don't you get some glamour in your life or something, you perpetual has-been? You will always be known as the woman that Madonna dumped in the alley trash-heap, biiiiyatch!

Goodmorning    

The mainstream media have gone over the line and are now straight-out propagandists for the Obama campaign.

While they have been liberal and blinkered in their worldview for decades, in 2007-08, for the first time, the major media consciously are covering for one candidate for president and consciously are knifing the other. This is no longer journalism; it is simply propaganda. (The American left-wing version of the Volkischer Beobachter cannot be far behind.)

And as a result, we are less than seven weeks away from possibly electing a president who has not been thoroughly or even halfway honestly presented to the country by our watchdogs — the press. The image of Obama that the press has presented to the public is not a fair approximation of the real man. They consciously have ignored whole years of his life and have shown a lack of curiosity about such gaps, which bespeaks a lack of journalistic instinct.

Thus, the public image of Obama is of a "man who never was."

To make the operation credible, British intelligence concocted a fictional life for the corpse, creating a letter from a lover and tickets to a London theater — all the details of a life, but not the actual life of the dead young man whose corpse was being used. So, too, the man the media have presented to the nation as Obama is not the real man.

The mainstream media ruthlessly and endlessly repeat any McCain gaffes while ignoring Obama gaffes. You have to go to weird little Web sites to see all the stammering and stuttering that Obama needs before getting out a sentence fragment or two. But all you see on the networks is an eventually clear sentence from Obama. You don't see Obama's ludicrous gaffe that Iran is a tiny country and no threat to us. Nor his 57 American states gaffe. Nor his forgetting, if he ever knew, that Russia has a veto in the U.N. Nor his whining and puerile "come on" when he is being challenged. This is the kind of editing one would expect from Goebbels' disciples, not Cronkite's.

More appalling, a skit on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" last weekend suggested that Gov. Palin's husband had sex with his own daughters. That show was written with the assistance of Al Franken, Democratic Party candidate in Minnesota for the U.S. Senate. Talk about incest. __________________________________________________________________________________________________-

But worse than all the unfair and distorted reporting and image projecting are the shocking gaps in Obama's life that are not reported at all. The major media simply have not reported on Obama's two years at New York's Columbia University, where, among other things, he lived a mere quarter-mile from former terrorist Bill Ayers. Later, they both ended up as neighbors and associates in Chicago. Obama denies more than a passing relationship with Ayers. Should the media be curious? In only two weeks, the media have focused on all the colleges Gov. Palin has attended, her husband's driving habits 20 years ago, and the close criticism of the political opponents Gov. Palin had when she was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. But in two years, they haven't bothered to see how close Obama was with the terrorist Ayers.

Nor have the media paid any serious attention to Obama's rise in Chicago politics. How did honest Obama rise in the famously sordid Chicago political machine with the full support of Boss Daley? Despite the great — and unflattering — details on Obama's Chicago years presented in David Freddoso's new book on Obama, the mainstream media continue to ignore both the facts and the book. It took a British publication, The Economist, to give Freddoso's book a review with fair comment.

The public image of Obama as an idealistic, post-race, post-partisan, well-spoken and honest young man with the wisdom and courage befitting a great national leader is a confection spun by a willing conspiracy of Obama, his publicist (David Axelrod) and most of the senior editors, producers and reporters of the national media.

Perhaps that is why the National Journal's respected correspondent Stuart Taylor wrote, "The media can no longer be trusted to provide accurate and fair campaign reporting and analysis."


That conspiracy not only has Photoshopped out all of Obama's imperfections (and dirtied up his opponent McCain's image) but also has put most of his questionable history down the memory hole.


The public will be voting based on the idealized image of the man who never was. If he wins, however, we will be governed by the sunken, cynical man Obama really is. One can only hope that the senior journalists will be judged as harshly for their professional misconduct as Wall Street's leaders currently are for their failings.

As well as Sandra B., if you are the type of people who are going to vote for Obama, then you made my choice easy, I'm voting for McCain. Your posts are so idiotic that if Obama attracts people like you then I know he can't be the right choice.

Angry Democrat 'Sky Blu' from LMFAO attack GOP Romney on Purpose .    

While Orwell wrote Animal Farm as a pointed criticism of Stalinist Russia, reviews of the book on the fiftieth-anniversary of its publication declared its message to be still relevant.
In a play on the famous line from the book, “All animals are equal , but Some animals are more equal than others.”

Today , the Left constantly make themselves out to be Victims (No Matter What) and people who really are Victims (if they do not advance socialism) will be Demonized (one example: 911 conspiracy theories)
The ‘Big Brother’ of Today are the people in the Media & Hollywood who in engage in destroying the lives of people who disagree with their political views.

I believe, Sarah Palin is being attacked for this very reason.
Because ,Biden and Obama have made so many inaccurate and bizarre statements and No one in the media or TV shows want to mock this (only Palin or McCain they choose to mock , why?)
