In Defense of Charlie Sheen

And I'm not talking about his personal life. Hey, even the best of us, were we making $1M/week, might occasionally find ourselves in a roomful of hookers rolling around in pile of cocaine. The libertarian in me just doesn't give a shite, quite honestly.

But it's the accusations of anti-Semitism that make me nuts. Look, Charlie is doing more than enough to put himself in a less-than-stellar light, the media needs not pile on with stretches like this:

Sheen denied accusations that he is an anti-Semite after he referred to Lorre by his Hebrew name during a Thursday call-in to radio's "Alex Jones Show."

"It's nothing this side of deplorable that a certain Chaim Levine, yeah that's Chuck's [Lorre] last name, mistook this rock star for his own selfish exit strategy bro," Sheen said.

"I was referring to Chuck by his real name, because I wanted to address the man, not the [expletive] TV persona," Sheen told the celebrity website TMZ. .

"So you're telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino?" Sheen told 'GMA,' referring to his birth name.

Ah, the mindfuck that is liberalism. Blacks can say "nigger", but whites can't. Giving your child unique and heritage-based names is the essence of multiculturalism, but using Barack Obama's middle name - "Hussein" - is some sort of hate crime. And calling a man by his given ethnic name, rather than his self-invented stage name, is apparently racist or anti-Semitic or whatever the Left decides it needs to be at the current moment. So we get Charlie Sheen as a raging anti-Semite, and The Muslim Brotherhood portrayed as the embodiment of tolerant understanding...

Charlie gets it. Hopefully, this is a wake-up call for him - no, not to end the non-stop orgy, but to realize that he's been affiliated with the wrong political party, one that will judge him and find him guilty of crimes he never even imagined existed, when they no longer had any use for him...

Hey don't feel too bad for him. He still has Brooke Mueller, and you don't...

(Disclaimer, of sorts: I met Charlie Sheen once, almost 20 years ago, to complete a quasi-legal business deal. Whereas he was already a Hollywood celebrity and I was a mere errand boy, I expected the quick blowoff, but he was charming and polite and we chatted for a good 5-10 minutes. Left quite the impression. Just thought I'd mention it, as I always demand "full disclosure" from the mainstream media..."
There were no hookers, drugs, or X-rated movies involved, Just saying...)

UPDATE: Now THIS is celebrity anti-Semitism, but I doubt it will get much play, as the fashion world is one of the few sectors (along with angry liberal .orgs) that still spills their cash on full-page ads in the dead-tree media:

British fashion designer John Galliano allegedly grabbed a respected art historian’s hair and called her an ‘ugly, disgusting whore’ with a ‘dirty Jew face’ and no dress sense during an unprovoked attack in a Paris cafe.

....She has claimed Galliano concluded his tirade with: ‘I am the designer John Galliano!’ while striking the trademark ‘rock star’ pose with which he often ends his couture shows.

Dior chief executive Sidney Toledano said: ‘...Pending the results of the inquiry, Christian Dior has suspended John Galliano from his responsibilities.’

A Paris police spokesman confirmed all details of the allegations against Mr Galliano, and said he was facing criminal charges...
