Jerry Lewis & The Unforgiving Left
Jerry Lewis has dedicated much of his personal and professional life to the cause of Muscular Dystrophy. Decade after decade with his yearly telethon and other works Lewis has been a one man show in keeping this awful disease in the public consciousness. And yet some on the Left, because in their diseased minds a half-century of charity work is wiped out by the uttering of fag, want to deny Lewis the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award:
I also have learned that protests are coming into the Academy about its Board of Governors choice of Jerry Lewis to receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. The controversy is over his recent repeated and public anti-gay slurs. The Hollywood gay community, joined by much of the showbiz straight community, is already on edge because of Proposition 8 passed last month outlawing same-sex unions in California. So the vote by the AMPAS board selecting Lewis seems like salt poured into an open wound, according to one of my sources. Already several prominent entertainment biz gays have questioned the Academy about the selection of Lewis, especially for a humanitarian award. Im told the AMPAS response has been, hes apologized. My insiders say Tom Sherak, the former 20th Century Fox and Revolution Studios exec who raises money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and has a family member with MS, was primarily responsible for lobbying the board to choose Lewis.
Again and again were told by the Left to understand and put into context the actions of other cultures from another time. Africans kill a baby because its not a male child no problem. Circumcise their women who are we to judge?
But dont you dare be an eighty-year, old white male who says fag.

Is there any question anymore as to who the fascists are?
I hope Jerry Lewis is doing what he’s doing for his Heavenly reward, not some dingy trophy that will gather dust and end up on ebay after he’s gone.
I am sick of the dimented leftist mindset.
I was reading an article and it was written by a cricket fan who was very upset. Throughout the article, when fag was used it was written, “f**”
Those whose minds allow them to follow politically correct prescripts are some of the most ignorant humanity has to offer.
I thought they could have their "civil unions"... its marriage that was kept sacred?
Despite the fact that ‘fag’ and ‘dyke’ have been used approximately 68,203,457 times by homosexuals themselves over the past 25 years.
Not to be confused with the California Republican U.S. Representative, who has the same name. BTW, is California Republican Representative Jerry Lewis a conservative or a RINO?
He had plenty gathering dust before he started doing the telethons. I doubt he thought he needed more. He's devoted a very sizable portion of his life, time, and energy to MDA which was time he still could have instead been making big money elsewhere. My guess his he figured he had enough cash to suffice as well. I think that alone pretty well says where his intentions lie.
I never cared much for Jerry Lewis’s acting or whatever he called what he did for a living. I certainly applaud him for his charity work. I would also like to congratulate him for his restraint in using the word “fag” instead of what I would have used.
Any bets “Milk” wins the Best Picture award? Sean “Over the Top” Penn the Best Actor?
It’s apparent that “charity” on the left only applies to afflictions and diseases that are contracted through decadent behaviour.
Conditions that are contracted through genetics don’t count, because those people should have been aborted by their parents in the first place. They don’t deserve charity because they shouldn’t even be here.
Go Mr. Lewis! Put it right in their faces like they shove their life style in mine! I love Ya!
