...because we know what the media does to enemies of the state. After "discrediting" dissenters (Soviet-style), the media proceeds to smear them, mock them, humiliate them....before they finally turn the bloodied carcass over to the IRS.
And we know what the IRS does to enemies of the state...
Criticism of the Left is not new territory for comedian Adam Carolla, but he's been a bit more subtle in the past. This time, he's going full-Breitbart. Not content with calling out the Huffington Post for accusing him of racism, Caolla takes on the entire media establishment:
...I got news for you: Me saying parents should stick around and raise the children – me saying families and cultures should focus on education — is not radical or revolutionary. It’s the fucking truth.”
“There’s people getting shot,” Carolla added. “There’s brown people shooting other brown people on the streets of Chicago every fucking day of the week. And you guys sit there silently. If it was a Sandy Hook situation or anything else, you’d be all up in arms. But you can’t say a word, so you sit there with your fucking coward hands over your fucking little cowardly soup coolers. And then when somebody has the guts to say something — to speak the truth for fucking one hot second, you jump up his ass and call him a racist. Thus, you silence the media. Now you perpetuate the problem.”
“The news media — it’s your job to try to do something,” he said. “It’s your job to blow the lid off these things. This is an epidemic. … If this was sickle cell, you guys would be talking about it. But it’s not. It’s a social issue. It involves family. It involves some judgment and some finger-pointing. And you’re not willing to do that because you’re pussy cowards. You are willing to point fingers at me. You’ll point fingers all day long. But you won’t point fingers where they belong, which are at these families and consequently, kids are living in poverty.”
“Generations are rolling over in poverty, and they’re dying,” he continued. “They’re shooting each other. They’re stabbing each other. They’re killing each other. You won’t say a word. The politicians won’t say a word. The so-called leaders won’t say a fucking word. And when I say a fucking word, I’m called a racist so you can silence me. Good, have it your way — nobody say a fucking word, and then we’ll watch all the black and brown people just go off into poverty, and we’ll hear all the stories about the 14-year-olds on the streets of Chicago being shot by other 14-year-olds. Is that your plan?
But's only Adam Carolla - a comic who's co-hosted multiple television shows, has a podcast that's the #1 comedy download on iTunes (and consistently top 10 in across all genres), who sells out his live shows, who has written a book, and even owns a freakin' winery, for God's sake.
But hey - it's not like he's a celebrity of any of intellectual heft, like media faves Janeane Garofalo and Sarah Silverman. Now their every word is worthy of great study...and fawning coverage
