    “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...

    All this commotion over campaign signs? Proving that more often than not, Republicans are their own worst enemies, a Wayne, New Jersey, councilman has been hit with a harassment complaint after a profanity-laced tirade directed at a fellow party member. Passaic County Regular Republican Organization employee Susan Enderly filed the complaint against Councilman Richard Jasterzbski after a heated argument Sunday about campaign signs being removed from the PCRRO headquarters, according to The Record. Unfortunately for Jasterzbski, the exchange was captured on video… by the woman’s daughter, who was standing right there! “You would be so lucky if I were f—ing...
  • FCC to investigate, 'take appropriate action' on Colbert’s Trump rant

    Late night talk show host Stephen Colbert's controversial joke about President Trump drew the attention of the Federal Communications Commission. The agency received "a number" of complaints about Colbert's commentary earlier in the week, according to the FCC's chief. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai promised to "take the appropriate action" following a comprehensive investigation of Colbert's remarks. The FCC's response will depend on whether Colbert's remarks are considered "obscene."

    Artnet has confirmed that Emma Sulkowicz, the former Columbia University student known for “Mattress Performance (Carry That Weight),” is behind the website “Ceci N’est Pas Un Viol .” The site hosts an artist’s statement from Sulkowicz, who graduated from Columbia in May of this year, and a video she filmed with director Ted Lawson several months ago over the university’s winter break. The eight-minute video features Sulkowicz and a man, his face blurred, engaging in what appears to be consensual sex that turns violent. The unidentified man open-palm slaps Sulkowicz, chokes her, removes the condom, then continues to have very...

    In its eight years of existence, Toronto’s BMO Field has become known as a refuge from workaday decorum—a place where soccer fans can let loose their animal subconscious, gulping beer and braying out their frustrations far from the disapproving eyes of colleagues and bosses. It was living up to that reputation two Sundays ago, when Shauna Hunt, a reporter with CityNews, dropped by the stadium’s southeast plaza to catch fans spilling out of a match between their beloved Toronto FC and the Houston Dynamo. The bacchanalia had ended with a 2-1 Toronto loss, but civil order was not yet in...

    Rapper Azealia Banks on Saturday reportedly tweeted a close-up photograph of genitals to The Blaze blogger Matt Walsh and conservative radio host Wayne DuPree after they criticized her for declaring her hatred for “fat white Americans” during a recent Playboy interview. Ms. Banks received the ire of conservatives last week when she told Playboy she hates everything about America and can’t wait to leave. “Like, I hate fat white Americans,” she said. “All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their...

    Florida State announced Wednesday that starting quarterback Jameis Winston has been suspended for the first half of the No. 1 Seminoles' game vs. Clemson on Saturday for yelling an "offensive and vulgar" phrase in the student union on FSU's campus. Deadspin collected a number of tweets from Florida State students who said they saw Winston standing on a table Tuesday "screaming" the phrase (one made popular by a series of recent viral hoax videos), which uses graphic sexual language. (Both links use the phrase and other R-rated language.)

    The team behind Miley Cyrus's Bangerz tour is reportedly meeting to respond to a flood of complaints by parents that the tour is too explicit for her still-young fan base. Cyrus left her Hannah Montana persona behind starting last year with an uninhibited performance at the VMAs telecast. Now, with her Bangerz Canadian tour featuring simulated oral sex, twerking and lounging atop phallic symbols, some parents say enough is enough.

    Newspapers are among the last places in America that have close to zero tolerance for [expletive deleted]. I could give you a hint about what word is between the brackets, but I’d best not for fear of arousing the ire of the editing Comstocks. About twice a year, I quote a profanity from a public figure, using just the first letter of the word and then some bowdlerizing asterisks for the rest. No dice, my editor tells me. You’re writing for a family newspaper. There was a time when such standards were the norm at major media institutions in America....
  • FCC May Allow 'Brief' Nudity, More Cursing on Broadcast TV

    The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering whether to loosen restrictions for obscenity on broadcast television and radio. This rule change would allow brief “non-sexual-nudity” and isolated expletives in prime time, while children are still awake and watching TV. The FCC claims that it will consider the public’s sentiment as its members make a decision and has given Americans the month of April to file their comments. Outgoing FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski previously had to order the Enforcement Bureau only to tackle “egregious cases” because of the “backlog” of reported obscenity cases. In the last 6 months, the FCC’s caseload...

    Twitchy reported earlier today that the most vile tweets from Jason Biggs’ Twitter feed had quietly disappeared, and now it seems there might be a very obvious reason why — Nickelodeon has begun tweeting Biggs’ Twitter handle in promotions for its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, for which Biggs provides a voice. That’s right: kids following Nickelodeon’s @TMNTMaster — an account which boasts nearly 2,400 followers — are literally one click away from the feed that introduced us to, well, this, not to mention a quick bit of Christian-bashing as a follow-up...

    The radical anti-American Code Pink group is encouraging their members to send snapshots of their vaginas to the RNC Convention in Tampa, Florida. LifeNews reported: Taking the silly “War on Women” rhetoric to another disgusting level, the pro-abortion feminists at CodePink have come up with a new campaign: Send your vaginas to the Republican convention. Upset that Republicans and presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney support religious freedom for groups opposing the Obama HHS mandate and wants to end taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business, CodePink thinks it has a great idea on how to respond. The “women’s group”...

    Santorum Says He Would Enforce US Obscenity Laws That Obama Ignores By NBC's Andrew Rafferty ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL -- Rick Santorum accused President Barack Obama of not enforcing the country's obscenity laws and said Friday that as chief executive he would crack down on illegal pornography. Santorum found himself answering pornography questions during a stop at an Italian restaurant here after the discovery of a statement posted in his campaign website in which he asserts that "America is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography." Recent reporting has shed light on the letter in which the former Pennsylvania senator vowed...

    When a politician makes a statement like this, he or she is putting it all on the line. That said, I’d like to point out American’s have already expressed an opinion and Congress has passed federal “obscenity” laws. It’s the Executive Branch’s job to enforce those laws. Should the president not enforce the law? Quite honestly, as it pertains to laws on the books, this is very similar to the current and previous administration’s refusal to vigorously enforce illegal immigration laws. In this statement, GOP candidate Rick Santorum stated he agrees with current law, gave the reasons why, and confirmed...

    We've got one more thing to say about "the bird" and singer M.I.A.'s flipping of her middle finger on national TV during Sunday's halftime show at the Super Bowl. On All Things Considered later today, American University law professor Ira Robbins will make the case that the digitus impudicus (as it was known back in ancient Rome), just isn't obscene anymore. "Is it inappropriate? That's another question," he tells NPR's Audie Cornish. But, he says, "it doesn't mean what it used to mean." "In the time of Caligula ... it was intended to be representative of a phallic symbol. Not...

    The Atlantic's socially liberal Andrew Sullivan asked in March 2008 two very interesting questions: "1. Why is it illegal for me to pay a prostitute for sex, but it’s NOT illegal for a film director to pay two people to have sex in front of a camera and then make money for his product in the form of a DVD or an online download? 2. As a corollary: Why are a prostitute and her john held in such contempt by the media and the public, but Jenna Jameson and Ron Jeremy are treated as rock stars on both cable and...

    Not to be outdone by show-business personalities, President Obama and Vice President Biden also feel free to drop F-bombs in public. When we discuss those at the highest levels of our government, we are dealing not just with teachers but with professors − in this case, professors of public speaking. When gray-haired public officials feel that they must mimic foul-mouthed middle-school boys and cursing rappers in order to appear “cool,” we know we are in deep trouble. For centuries, public figures were able to express themselves − in fact, to express deep thoughts and inspiring ideals − without the use...

    The smug certainty with which leftists insist that they're better people than conservatives has always been an interesting phenomenon. We’re asked to believe that our opponents are more moral, more responsible, more enlightened, and more sensitive than we are one minute…and one of our betters turns around and asks what the big deal is about some outrageous case of moral degeneracy the next. Such is the case of the latest pontifications from The View co-host Joy Behar. In a discussion of Skins, the new MTV show which might have broken child pornography laws by filming actors as young as 15...
