I personally don't have much respect for someone who openly prays to God, then blows off a foul mouthed pitch like that, he is the icon of hypocrisy. However, his phone conversation was private. Should a private phone conversation cost him his career and fortune?

Dog is a phony. He has the mouth of a sailor and he is a convicted murderer. His daughter passes away suddenly and he Weds the next day? Enough said. Dog has done some good but nowhere near the sorrow he caused.

I didn’t hear him use God’s name in vain. If you lived in the world he lives and works in most of the time, you would probably feel like going on a cussing rant now and then as well.

I would say he is a piece of trash, and I have no ideal why anyone would watch the clown in the first place.

You say a filthy mouthed, convicted murderer, who has been married 5 or 6 times might be a racist?

That’s hard to believe. In any case, I know it is just what I want to see more of on TV!

Amen. The snobby "He's trash" comments are disappointing me, he may not be perfect but he is a believer and he has done a lot of good. He's always talking to the criminals he catches and encouraging them to get off drugs and start a new life. He caught a fugitive rapist, risking his own safety, and some people would rather call HIM "trash"? Sad.

I hate to admit this, but I work in a small office with a couple of women and we usually listen to The View on the radio. Whoopi Goldberg, of all people, defended Dog today. She basically said, “Who among us hasn’t used language in private that we would not use in public?” Actually agreeing with her is a first for me. (After The View and the local news, we put the radio on Rush.)

I don’t think it should be pulled. I am tired of the double standards where “that” word is used. Why can blacks & rappers use it? I don’t care for “that” word . I think the son & his girlfriend are selling out for much needed money. I don’t watch Dog’s show, have a few times but its just not that interesting. However I do admire Dog for getting that rapist Andrew Luster into a jail here where he belonged & nobody else seemed to be able to do it. If I were the Dog I would have said ..I am sorry , I will not use the word again but this is my private life. End of story.

BINGO! I AGREE 100%. Get ready for this POSs many defenders and lovers here at FR to appear and chastize you soon. I said the same thing in another Dog thread and was ripped to shreds. I just don’t understand why he’d even have a following here. Some see him as some sort of folk hero or something.

Yes, it should be canceled. Not because Dog shot his mouth off, but because watching it causes permanent drops in viewer IQ.

I normally don’t FReep polls, but felt like it in this case. I voted no. Dog is a drama queen, but seems to be a genuinely good guy who does good work.

I'm not going to vote because I there wasn't an option for "I really don't care". I'm not undecided. I'm quite sure I don't care.

I watched the show a few times, it lost it's amusement value pretty quickly. However, if there are people that want to watch the crappy show and it pays for itself in advertising, then let it stay on the air.

I suspect that if it gets canceled it will be because the advertisers don't want to be associated with him after his idiotic comments became public.

You can complain about censorship and all that, but in the end it is the advertisers that pay the bills, and if they don't want to support his show, his show is going to get canceled.

The same goes for 95% of what's on TV. So what?

That's not the question.

The question is whether using politically incorrect language when talking privately to your son deserves a public flogging. The "N" word is the verbal taboo du jour. Unless you're a gang banger of course, in which case it's cool.

When tomorrow comes, who knows what words we'll have to think twice about using with members of our family, just in case someone is listening.

I think he’s going too far with his apology. I doubt most of the blacks that are dems will ever forgive him. He said he was really really sorry. Good enough for me, but I’m not black.

There is nothing necessarily snobby about calling Dog Chapman trashy. He runs around dressed like a WWF figure ... he curses like most can't ... he fathers children he never knew he had until they show up one day ... need I go on? He fits the term trashy like a glove.

And exactly what good has he done with all of the talking he does to criminals? What percentage of his bail jumpers turn their lives around after he had caught them and turned them back in to the police for their court date? How many start a new life?

Yes, he tracked down Andrew Luster and he deserved and got great recognition for that. That ultimately led to him getting the A&E show to begin with. That doesn't give him a pass for the remainder of his life.

DID THE GIRLFRIEND REGULARLY USE THE “N-WORD” HERSELF?

If not, why are Freepers defending Dog, and claiming the girlfriend is a hypocrite??

Maybe A & E thinks Dog’s [seemingly] unjustified rantings against his son’s black g/f warrant kicking him off the air??

Dog’s SON got sick of his dad’s rants against his girlfriend for having a skin color different from his.

Why is Dog getting a pass??

If she did NOT, why are Freepers grumbling about hypocrisy and a double standard? As far a we know Dog has shoown himself to be ugly and hateful to his son’s g/f for no other reason than her skin color is different from his.

That’s a lousy, ugly image to project in the eyes of advertisers. End of story!

I cannot believe how many Freepers won’t even condemn his ugliness, nasty attitude towards his own son’s g/f.

I’m tierd of hearing complaints about hypocrisy.
Unless you can prove to me that the girlfriend regularly used the N-word, there’s no excuse for the nastiness.

That’s life...

I think I’ve watched his show a half dozen times (when nothing better was on). Can’t say that I care much for it, but I did note that he tries to use empathy and persuasion whenever possible to get the job done. He may spew racist words, but it’s hard to believe that he is some sort of deep-seated George Lincoln Rockwell or Sheriff Bull Connors type.

That's not the question.

Could you give me a link to the post from Jim that says you were in charge of defining the question. Until then it is up to each poster, that is why we have a discussion. The man is a low IQ jerk, and no one that should be held out as any kind of a role model. Do something useful support the military that is really working for you. Not some clown acting like he wants to be on steroids and in the acting ring on the fake WWF.

BINGO - and this is really getting deep - when a persons PRIVATE conversation is being used to take them down - if that's allowed --- you damn well better start watching what you say in the privacy of your home --- someone can turn you in and that's all she wrote....

What he said, in a private conversation, is not nearly as bad as it being used to ruin him .

If you think about it a bit, is this a precedence you want to see started?

"As far a we know Dog has shoown himself to be ugly and hateful to his son’s g/f for no other reason than her skin color is different from his."

The tape itself gives indication that it is not her skin color he had a problem with, and he also publicly stated that it wasn't about race, but character.

His son has drug problems, and apparently the GF was not a good influence on him, and Dog was concerned with her character, NOT her skin color. Dog's pastor is black (who conducted Dog's wedding ceremony) and last I heard he said he doesn't think that Dog is racist.

"That’s a lousy, ugly image to project in the eyes of advertisers. End of story! I cannot believe how many Freepers won’t even condemn his ugliness, nasty attitude towards his own son’s g/f."

Many here have condemned his language, including myself. I was very disappointed he used that word, in any context, but I do realize that some people don't use it in the worst (racist) context, and although that still doesn't make it right, some of us can see that overall (despite his flaws) he's not the horrible person some have immediately condemned him to be. He has flaws, for sure, we all do. But I am not on the anti-Dog side because despite his obvious flaws, I think he is a believing Christian, albeit a very rough and imperfect one. As a Christian myself, I'm told we are to forgive others. God said if we don't forgive others, He doesn't forgive us.

If you lived in the world he lives and works in most of the time, you would probably feel like going on a cussing rant now and then as well.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

No, sorry, I’ve had to deal with the very same people he deals with, probably many more, and I have never felt the need to spout off as he did. Dog has a lot of baggage that is clearly not over for him. The proverbial lipstick some are trying to apply to him won’t change a thing.

Well you weren't here so I was bored. Anyway I saw that silly show tonight & I think Dog ought to just shut up asap. As for the son's g/f ...hmmm I have questions. Dog says he has never met her yet she goes on & says he is a racist, she KNOWS!! Ok how does she know if she & Dog never met??. So what is the truth? Personally I think what you say in private is yours.... If he wants to say sorry fine say it & shut up. As for the g/f I think she is a liar . No little Miss Innocent. To sell that tape says quite a bit about what those two needed which was $$$ asap. If I was Dog I would stop going on shows & go back to getting bail jumpers.

From all the polls I've seen most Americans want the show. I wonder how many time Jesse or AL etc have said Honky??? This is insane... all this bs about words. Dog should not use bad words, but its a word that is sadly used. Stop the double standard bs! Blacks & whites should stop using that word.

I’m getting tired of the whole political correctionist movement. Anyone should be able to speak any work they want any time. Our country was far better off when people didn’t have to worry about every utterance taking away their livelihood.
If someone wants to use a slur then they are a jerk not a felon by inference.
