Never heard of the guy.
This man has said the worst thing I have ever heard.
Good, but he never should have been invited in the first place.
no f***ing loss
I hope to meet the guy some day.
This is good news! Thought you might like a *ping* !
I watched some episodes of his (short lived) TV series. Thought it was pretty funny until.....I saw the episode where he suggested that pedophiles be allowed to return abducted children (after y’know) free of consequences. Will never watch anything that a$$hole does again.
Do you really believe he was being serious about that?
Do you really believe it matters?
Yes, I do.
Pretty much everyone’s heard of Michael Jackson.
Honestly, I couldn’t tell one way or the other. But I do know that one of the last frontiers in the “Culture Wars” will be the normalization of pedophiles. How will that happen? Maybe it will start with ambiguous jokes from edgy commedians suggesting that we forgive pedophiles their sins? Think about it.
God Bless Greta for standing up for what is right. This “man” is a vile, disgusting sack of feces. Bill Maher is a total ass but this guy has said things that makes what Maher said look tame. This shows that we still have a voice, we stand up against these leftist thugs and we can still win
Sorry, there are some things you did “kid” about. That is one of them.
For me, watching his show, it's obvious he is a very insecure and fearful guy who isn't afraid to show that side of himself. He has two daughters and I think it was his attempt to deal with his own fears about his daughters. It was very awkward and not funny, admittedly. By I think that's where he is coming from and I give a mild pass for it.
Google Louis CK. That isn’t his only pedophile joke—there’s a few of ‘em. Whatever his motivation, there does appear to be a motivation of some kind. But, from a psychological perspective, when you get people to laugh at something, that is the first step to making it okay.
Collateral damage from attacking Rush.
Pray for America
Another look at why:
Wow, your conflation of the struggle of a psychologically wounded person finding the courage to confront their fears, with a professional comedian struggling to find a way to outrage the very fabric of civilization while still getting paid for it, was smoooooth as silk.
Whoever pays you to post doesn't pay you enough.
