    “The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing,” declared George Washington, “is a vice so mean and low that every person of sense and character detests and despises it.” Theodore Roosevelt concurred: “Profanity is the parlance of the fool. Why curse when there is such a magnificent language with which to discourse?” The answer is that profanity is a useful substitute for discourse when one is losing a debate and needs to trump reason with passionate intensity in order to win. That is what is happening in the current degraded state of our national political conversation. I’m not...
  • Democrats’ pathetic bid to swear their way into voters’ hearts

    Al D’Amato was once widely known as “Sen. Pothole” for focusing on local issues. Kirsten Gillibrand is earning a different nickname: Sen. Potty-mouth. In recent months, leading Democrats from national chairman Tom Perez on down have been unleashing f-bombs, s-bombs and everything in between as they try to rally their party to “resist.” And New York’s junior senator seems to be leading the charge. “If we are not helping people, we should go the f - - k home,” Gillibrand told the Personal Democracy Forum at NYU last Friday. Of President Trump, she asked: “Has he kept his promises? F - - k no.” Indeed, she...

    An embarrassed CNN and MSNBC quickly – but not quickly enough – pulled away from live coverage of Madonna’s f-bomb fueled speech at the March on Washington. Both channels let three of the utterances slip through.

    September 21, 2016, 06:39 pm Obama: I curse more than I should By Jordan Fabian President Obama admitted in a new interview that the frustrations of being the leader of the free world sometimes get him to slip out of his no-drama persona. “I curse more than I should,” Obama told historian Doris Kearns Goodwin in an interview published in Vanity Fair. “And I find myself cursing more in this office than I had in my previous life.” The president said the one saving grace is that his top advisers use worse language than he does. “Fortunately both my chief...

    Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz  4% said “d***” in front of the Supreme Court building while the Little Sisters of the Poor were there demonstrating. Wasserman Schultz was speaking to a group of Planned Parenthood supporters who were there while the court was hearing oral arguments in the case of Zubik v. Burwell. The Little Sisters of the Poor are one of many plaintiffs who are asking to be exempting from the federal government requirement to cover contraceptives in their health-care plans. “Those rights that we secured must remain in place and while we’re at it this...

    ST. LOUIS, MO – A mother says she is frustrated with the #BlackLivesMatter protesters in St. Louis. Peggy Hubbard says there is too much black on black crimes. She believes the demonstrators are marching for the wrong people. She says they should be standing up for innocent victims killed every night in the streets of St. Louis. According to our St. Louis affiliate, a 9-year-old girl was shot and killed on Tuesday night while doing homework on her mother’s bed. On Wednesday night protesters took to the streets to march for an 18-year-old shot and killed by police. Officers say...

    Regulators are extending the comment period on a controversial proposal to ease restrictions on cursing and “nonsexual nudity” over public airwaves. The action drew fire Monday from opponents of the idea, who have called upon the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to scrap the plan and salvage the final vestiges of family-friendly broadcasting. Back in April, the FCC put out a call for feedback on a plan to focus on the most egregious cases of indecency. If adopted, the less stringent regulations would reflect a shift from George W. Bush-era policies of pursuing penalties for isolated infractions on broadcast television. The...

    Are you f*&!ing serious? As a native Buckeye who’s lived in Washington for eight years, this was my first reaction to the data analysis released today by our Marchex Institute, which found that people in Ohio curse the most in the country. Washingtonians, by contrast, curse the least. (WTF?) The data also placed Ohioans in the Top 5 “Least Courteous” category. Apparently, residents there have a harder time saying “please” and “thank you,” which were the keywords that Marchex’s Call Mining technology scanned for when aggregating data on pleasantries. It’s fascinating stuff. And it coincides with National Etiquette Week, a...

    Dana Milbank: Future Scholars Will Be Shocked By Number of F-bombs Dropped By This White House By Noel Sheppard Created 03/10/2013 - 1:45pm The Washington Post's Dana Milbank made an interesting observation Sunday about the vulgarity prominent in the current presidential administration. Appearing on CNN's Reliable Sources, Milbank said, "The number of F-bombs being dropped by this White House, scholars are going to look in the national archives in 20 or 30 years and they're going to be shocked by the language that was coming out of this place" (video follows with transcript and commentary): HOWARD KURTZ, HOST: Is there...

    Of the many celebrity campaign excrescences lately, this is the best example of something designed more to promote the people involved than their chosen candidate. Ostensibly it’s an ad to elect Obama but in reality it’s a reminder from Michael Moore and MoveOn that they’re still out there, doin’ their thing, even though both are now seven or eight years removed from peak relevance. Ace is probably right that the inspiration was Betty White (who, incidentally, is an Obama supporter, and who could have singlehandedly made this clip mega-viral by appearing in it), but the “cursing granny” shock gag is...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — An anti-profanity crusader on Tuesday asked ABC to pull this week's "Modern Family" episode in which a toddler appears to use a bleeped curse word. "Our main goal is to stop this from happening," said McKay Hatch, an 18-year-old college student who founded the No Cussing Club in 2007. "If we don't, at least ABC knows that people all over the world don't want to have a 2-year-old saying the 'F-bomb' on TV."
  • Parents: Cursing baby doll should not be sold (FReeper Parental Warning)

    ORLANDO, Fla. - Nationally sold baby dolls are causing a controversy because some say the toys utter a bad word. The "You & Me Interactive Triplets," which are being sold at Toys R Us stores in Orlando, are causing the uproar because one of the dolls can be heard saying what appears to be the phrase, "Hey, crazy b****." "Oh, absolutely. She's calling them a crazy b****," Kathy Wetter said. The dolls are recommended for children ages 2 and older, and there is no warning of explicit language on the packaging. Toys R Us said it has received a number...

    MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee man said he thinks it's pretty darn ridiculous that he got fined $500 for swearing on a county bus. Terry Duncan said that he considers it un-American to get slapped with a $500 disorderly conduct fine for saying two words. The words in questions started with the letters "f" and "s." After Duncan uttered them last Tuesday, an undercover deputy ordered him off the vehicle and handed him the ticket. Duncan said he's new to Milwaukee, didn't know about the law and pointed out it's not posted anywhere in the bus. He said he simply cursed...

    When Tiger Woods badly missed a shot Sunday during his Career Revival Tour at The Masters, CBS microphones clearly recorded him cursing the name of "Jesus Christ." I thought Tiger was a Buddhist? Asked about two strings that Tiger wears near his watch, "It's Buddhist. It's for protection and strength and I certainly need that," he told the Golf Channel's Kelly Tilghman. He said he began wearing the Buddhist bracelet before he went into therapy treatment and said he will "absolutely" be wearing it at the Masters and forever. In fact, Tiger attributes straying from Buddhism for losing control in...

    President Barack Obama called rap star Kanye West “a jackass.” Vice President Joe Biden told a senator to “Gimme a f—-ing break!” Economic adviser Christina Romer declared that Americans had yet to have their "holy s—-” moment over the economy. Those who pay attention to political rhetoric say an unusual amount of profanity has emanated from this White House – even without counting famously colorful White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel. But before this statement becomes fodder for yet another partisan debate (with conservatives saying Obama is disgracing the presidency, and liberals that the media are once again being...

    [audio player] You never know what’s going to come out of Joe Biden’s mouth. But we’ll bet you didn’t expect this. Biden was a Union Station yesterday, bragging up Obama’s $1.3 billion “investment” in train stations and rail lines. The error-prone vice president was apparently unaware of a near-by microphone. When one of his former Senate colleagues called him “Mr. Vice President,” Biden replied with what is reportedly one of his favorite phrases:......

    A few months ago, actor Christian Bale went nuts while filming “Terminator Salvation.” Some poor lighting guy made the mistake of walking into a shot while cameras were rolling. Bale stopped production while he publicly humiliated the poor guy, repeatedly berated him in the crudest possible terms, and despite the man’s apologies, threatened to beat him to a pulp. got its hands on a tape of the incident. If you choose to listen, be prepared for some major league swearing. You’ll hear Bale screaming obscenities over and over again and threatening to quit if the guy isn’t fired. According...

    The Times-Tribune (Scranton PA) ^ | 10/23/08 | JEREMY G. BURTON
    When Dawn Herb’s toilet overflowed, it cost her nothing to fix. The city of Scranton, however, will pay $19,000 to avoid a lawsuit from Ms. Herb, who was charged with disorderly conduct last October for swearing at the malfunctioning piece of porcelain. A judge later dismissed the charge, saying Ms. Herb’s language, however offensive, was protected as free speech. The American Civil Liberties Union and Barry Dyller, Ms. Herb’s attorney, announced the settlement Wednesday. The money will cover Ms. Herb’s legal expenses, but Mr. Dyller said it also should send a message that there’s a price to pay for violating...

    New Study Shows Broadcast TV Family Hour Fare Filthier Than Ever Fox is the worst broadcast network overall LOS ANGELES, September 6, 2007 ( - A new Parents Television Council study of Family Hour programming conclusively shows that children watching television during the first hour of prime time are assaulted by violence, profanity or sexual content once every 3.5 minutes of non-commercial airtime. During the 2006-2007 study period, almost 90% of the 208 television shows reviewed contained objectionable content. The PTC found that Fox is the worst broadcast network overall, noting its 20.78 instances of violent, profane and sexual content...
