Alec Baldwin: Good-bye, Public Life
Vulture.com ^ | 2/23/2014 | Alec Baldwin

Posted on 02/23/2014 8:43:55 PM PST by Beave Meister

As told to Joe Hagan.

I flew to Hawaii recently to shoot a film, fresh on the heels of being labeled a homophobic bigot by Andrew Sullivan, Anderson Cooper, and others in the Gay Department of Justice. I wanted to speak with a gay-rights group that I had researched and admired, so I called its local Honolulu branch.

The office number turned out to be some guy’s cell phone. I left him a message—I said, “I’m from out of town, I’m visiting Hawaii on business, I’d like to get some information on your group.” After two or three more calls, he answered the phone. I said, “Yeah, I’m the guy that called about your organization.” And he said, somewhat impatiently, “Okay, well, what did you want?” I said, “Well, let me put it to you this way, Nick. Your name is Nick? Nick, let me begin by asking you a question. Who would you say, by your estimation, is the most homophobic member of the entertainment industry currently in the media?” And he paused for a long count of four and said, “Um … Alec Baldwin?”

And I said, “Ding, ding, ding, ding! Bingo, Nick, bingo! That’s who you’re talking to.” He said, “C’mon!”

I said, “Nick, I want to come in and talk.”

Perhaps one of the most pathetic narcissistic rants ever written. Did Baldwin actually think his liberal friends were trustworthy? If he did, he is even dumber than his politics.

Read the article and typical liberal blames everyone else for his problems and for being a five star d-bag.

Well, Alec is certainly wallowing in pity for himself, but at a few points, he is the proverbial blind squirrel who finds the nut.

The self anointed gay rights champions, and the sheep media who bleat what the former tells them, are indeed out of control and ready to destroy anyone at the slightest hint of heresy. Get on the wrong side, and you are face the modern, secular equivalent of an Inquisition. All that is missing is the thumbscrews.

I suspect Baldwin’s scoop on how MSNBC runs is probably accurate, too. Maddow is their only marketable personality, so she probably is the real power behind the throne there, so to speak.

He doesn’t like gays. But it’s not fashionable to dislike gays as a Liberal.

What to do?

Baldwin is not as bad as the press make him out. I rather think he’s too conservative for their likes.

He is heterosexual with a wife and baby he adores. He’s a loyal father. He has his beliefs and opinions but he works within the American system. He’s a good citizen who pays his bills, his taxes.

Our system is supposed to allow for freedom of beliefs. The press has tormented the guy into reacting for headlines.

It sucks to be famous these days.

He is walking right into the belly of the beast. Not that I care or have any sympathy, but to waltz over to Hawaii trying to get connected with the gays there, LOL. He knows not what he does.

That is the biggest “Gay Mafia” in this country. He will surely step on some serious toes there and probably won’t last long! And, he will never understand or know why it didn’t work out.

"He doesn’t like gays."

Muzzies don't like homos, either. Oh well, even stopped clocks are right twice a day. Or in Baldwin's case, maybe once a day.

Maybe it’s ‘cause I’m his age and also fat. But I have no problem with 90% of the stuff he does that is “controversial”.

He’s a lefty jerk. But, I’m sick of the “YOU MUST APOLOGIZE FOR THE INSENSITIVE THING YOU SAID!!!” political theater.

Alas, “conservatives” (Hannity) are just as bad as the Lefties.

Mr. Baldwin has a long history of anger management issues.

Alec Baldwin to his first daughter, Ireland, via voice mail:

"You are a rude, thoughtless little pig. You don't have the brains or the decency as a human being. I don't give a damn that you're 12 years old, or 11 years old, or that you're a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn't care about what you do as far as I'm concerned."

That started out as an interesting read, but then the cussing got worse and worse, then he started rambling and lashing out, it became really pitiful and whiny in the later parts.

In the end, it came off like a long, drunken phone call.

Good grief!
The guy is still clueless!
He could have saved himself a couple of thousand words by using just two sentences:

"I have always had an anger management problem.
My life might have been different, if only..."

This isn't the first time Alec has been "caught" saying "faggot".

He's used it on several occasions.

Like when he threatened to beat up one of those Central Park horse drawn carriage drivers.

Unfortunately for him, THIS time it was caught on camera.

And the gay guy who runs TMZ really DOES have it in for poor Alec.

It wouldn't surprise me if TMZ follows him around all the time, trying to provoke a reaction.

Alec is too stupid to realize that, and plays right into TMZ's hands.

I’m seriously waiting for Kristin Powers to cross over to our side, and I get the hint from this rather interesting article by him, that he is soon to have a revelation similar to David Mamet. Maybe that’s what you need to do, Alec, team up with David again, actually. The movie Glenberry etc was great. Then we learned of your politics.

Then his wife is using him too. She gets him riled up at people. Can you imagine having this man as your husband. You know he is gonna go off on people and she just fuels the fire. She also daily tries to grab all this attention with doing her yoga poses everywhere and tweets them out, "LOOK AT ME!! LOOK AT ME!!"

Alex is being used by her and he doesn't really grasp in what way his life has gone further down hill because of her. He just tries to guard her like a precious commodity--which she ain't.

He can't escape into privacy even if he wanted. He married an attention -hore. Sad but true.

He says liberal media has gotten as bad as conservative media. I guess he thought liberal media was great when he could go on and call for Henry Hyde’s family to be stoned.

His career is over so he wants to try to get in the last word. funny

Despite having his eyes opened about MSNBC and other liberal media outlets, Bill De Blasio, the gay mafia, Baldwin is still unable or unwilling to take the next logical step. For him, the real baddies will always be conservatives.
