Skip to comments.Don Imus’s Take on ‘Tehran Tom’ Hanks: ‘Another Panty-wearing Liberal Dickweed’

Don Imus, for one, is not surprised by Tom Hanks' recent comments calling WWII and the War on Terrorism racist crusades undertaken by the United States.
First brought to his attention by "Imus in the Morning" producer Bernard McGuirk on the show, the remarks were news to the host - just not shocking news.
"Oh darn, what a surprise. We have another panty-wearing liberal dickweed from Hollywood - of course!" Imus told McGuirk.
McGuirk dubbed Hanks "Tehran Tom" for remarks the actor made March 5 on-set of MSNBC to promote "The Pacific," the HBO mini-series he helped produce.

Just the headline made me burst out laughing. I am not an Imus fan, but he’s right on this one.
LoL. Ive never been a fan of Imus and have liked Tom Hanks work, but that there is just funny.
Hanks, Spielberg and their buddy little Opie appear to be the leaders of the Hollywood cabal. America-hating, limousine liberals. McCarthy would have had a field day with these three pixies. They don’t even try to hide their hatred for America and our culture.

Hollywierdos for Obama:
I was going to watch HBO’s Pacific, not any more.
Didn’t know I liked Imus until now.
Me too... Band of Brothers was probably the single best thing ever produced for TV. But I won’t support this jackass...
sounds like he is about ready to start running around in a skirt again like he did in that one show he started out on!
"Dickweed" is putting it mildly.
I agree. He was crucified by the media that almost every “zoo-type” shock jock says over the air. The headline was worth the ROFL.
Hanks lost me during an Oscar speech some years back (when I still watched that crap) and he went on and on about his wonderful, gay drama teacher.
And how wonderful it was that he was his wonderful gay drama teacher. And how wonderful and gay he was.
Not the first to have an agenda, but clearly a tool nonetheless.
what was all this crap about a WW2 memorial then?....Tommy just a camera hog wanting we peasants to think he really gives a damn about our parents....
Tom Hanks is a calamity.
Between, Matt Damon, OPIE, and Hanks, there are a Parade of Hollywood Idiots who are trying to out-scumbag Oliver Stone.
I watched the first episode, BTW. Its was as PC as I was afraid it would be.
For whatever reason Hanks/Spielburg don't see the US fighting men in the Pacific as virtuous as those in the European theater.
Hanks and Spielberg should have quit while they were slightly ahead with the Band of Brothers series.
I am not interested in watching this Series at all and I am a history enthusiast.
I have less use for Politically Correct nonsense than I have for J.F. Kerry.
So am I and it pains me to see what those effete b*stards in Hollywood are trying to do to the reputations of these great WWII guys - I hate to imagine what those who are still alive must be thinking.
One of my mother's first cousins, Dominick, was a POW in a Japanese Labor camp in Asia somewhere. When he was rescued (just in time because in the camp just a few miles from his the Japanese were trying to remove the prisoners for execution) he was ,70 lbs. At 5 foot 8 inches in height, he was severely emaciated. It took him a year to recover.
He died about 10 years ago in his early eighties. He never complained to anyone about his experience. As far as I could tell, he led a happy life though he never married and had a family of his own. I did not know the full story of his ordeal until after his death.
This is the real life story Mr. Hanks and Mr. Spielberg will never tell about WWII. Shame on them!
