Naah, he’s a liberal, he will be forgiven ANYTHING.

I mean it’s not like he took a drink of water during a speech or anything.

Baldwin gives a lot of $ to democrats. He will not be condemned for letting the world see that he is an ignorant loudmouth racist bastard.

If the black guy is conservative whites are permitted to use language that blacks in the Race and Civil Rights industries use to attack conservative blacks. No problem.

He needs to star in Django 2. He could play a bounty hunter and joke about he gets to hunt black people and hang them and gets PAID for it. What a riot that would be!

So “drug dealer” is a racist epithet??

I’day that that says more about those who take offense than it does about Alec Baldwin; although I can think of nothing that I admire about the man.

Alec is down with the brothers. He was just proving his street cred. Its OK, he can do it. He marched in Selma. Well, not really, but he would have.

OK, but “drug dealer” was also mentioned. If it was not considered racist, then why was that?

I really hate to tell State Senator Malcolm Smith this, but Alex Baldwin has the same First amendment rights as he does.
To me, his comments as offensive as Baldwin’s.

to SUSPEND Alec Baldwin from all projects

That is not really necessary. Individuals like me do our own suspending.

In this day of information overload, it is convenient to remove annoyances that add to the overload. Alec Baldwin is one of those annoyances. Therefore, I do not watch or observe anything involving him.

There was not much Baldwin to remove in the first place but nonetheless the overload is lighter now. The only downside is that it also affects the other people he entertains with and his sponsors. The true of the matter is that there is so much more to select from that he, his co-workers, or his sponsors are not missed.

I have not watched Alec Baldwin, Julia Roberts (no loss), or Janeane Garofalo in many years and a long list of others (Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, etc etc) A shame, really, because I like some of the movies they were in like Hunt for Red October, and 13 going on 30. Oh, well. THEY injected politics, not me.
