Colin Quinn actually said "The Left is suppressing our use of language and free speech!"

Posted on 09/28/2004 8:43:10 PM PDT by Minus_The_Bear

I don't know if anybody else watches Tough Crowd but it's a actually pretty balanced. The host Colin Quinn has said numerous times that he's gonna vote for Bush and won't let liberals get away with crap on his show. Sure it's kinda crude sometimes but it's surprising to see somebody on TV who has the same opinions I do (bet he doesn't last too much longer)

Colin Quinn. I used to watch him on Remote Control on MTV with Jenny McCarthy.

Colin Quinn is my kind of guy. One who is a conservative and enjoys a good beer...or least several mediocre beers.

"Tough Crowd" is what Bill Mahr claims "Politically Incorrect" is. It's a really great show. You ought to see how he can cut it up when he has some "brothas" on.

Tough Crowd is easier to watch than "the Daily Show."

Colin Quinn and his rotating band of comedians are genuinely funny and cover topics with a blatant disregard for political correctness.

I enjoy the show and while I didn't see him state his political leanings, I have always suspected.

Rush brought up something today about liberals that got me to thinking. He said we can't expect them to come around because liberaliasm is a religious faith to them. One of their doctrines is that all weapons are bad. Hence it's easy to kick out of school an excellent student, a role model citizen because he has a hatchet in the trunk of his car in the school parking lot. Never mind that it is a Boy Scout hatchet, and it was in his trunk from a scout meeting the night before. Zero Tolerance, this from the great crusaders of tolerance. Many religions have a zero tolerance philosophy, and liberalism is just another one.

I propose a new phrase to enter the Freeper Lexicon: Fundamentalist Liberal

When reason is the enemy, the fundamentalist liberal will go on faith, and demand that you do too.

true, good point. I was just surprised that somebody on TV said the Left was trying to stifle free speech. And if you watch the show you'll know he's not the brightest guy in the world but he's right on some issues.

Superb word creation. I think we have the next "Buckhead" moment! We'll have to start working this into every day conversation, or better yet looking for it on the news. They are probably trolling this site to look for some tips on news reporting. God knows after Rathergate they can use it, especially at the Jason Blair Times (NYT)....

I think he had three strikes against him just for being a Boy Scout - the times we live in.

Comedy Central is planning to cancel the show in November unless the ratings improve. Support the show. Watch it. Go to the link above and write a letter to Comedy Central telling them you're a fan.

I know Quinn was on Remote Control but was Jenny McCarthy on there also? I thought she was on that dating show with the guy that went out with the chick with the Australian accent on Real World. From what I recall Marisol Massey was the babe on Remote control.

"Fundamentalist Liberal", eh? I like it. I and a lot of my conservative friends consider ourselves "Classic Liberals" in the vein of Thomas Jefferson et.al. and have come to resent that the word "liberal" has been hijacked and bastardized by the socialists.

I guess you just don't understand funny! The Colin Quinn show is dull and not entertaining.

Did you see the show he had on NBC sometime last year?

I told my husband to hurry and watch it because it wasn't going to be on long.

I'm liberal, but I don't oppose guns. I just don't want to be @ war w/Iraq because of a grandiose plan to control the Middle East by starting by establishing a staging point in Iraq.

Yes. Liberalism has become a code word against everything wholesome that made this the greatest country ever. Liberalism would declare it a 'hate crime" for boy scouts who would not allow homosexuals to sleep in their tents. (BTW, how many homosexuals have molested boy scouts?) They believe in moral relativism--anything which would destroy the Christian foundation which formed this country.

I like the fundamentalist part, but these guys aren't real liberals, they are hardcore leftists.

Now left wing fundamentalists, has a more accurate ring to it.

I just got the chills even saying it.

How about self defense? Are you against self defense? Would you rather the battle be on our streets instead?

We are not at war with Iraq. We are in a war within Iraq against those attempting to prevent the majority of citizens of that country from forming a democratically elected government.

We're not looking to control it, Marski. Nobody can "control" the loony tunes in that part of the world. But we did right to give them a fighting chance of wresting their own country back from the Ba'athist thugs and keeping it away from the mullah-wanna-be's.

isn't colin quinn the guy who used to be on saturday nite live who gave the impassioned plea to the american tv-viewing public that bill clinton shouldn't be impeached?
if this is the same guy, he seems to have evolved/matured.

Actually, I prefer 'neocommunist'. I've been reading Skoun's book "The Naked Communist", and I've seen a lot of parallels.

What has come to be called 'Red Baiting' is just disturbingly too easy - it's possible there's a reason for it.
