    Adam Carolla: OWS Movement "Self-entitled monsters"

    Adam Carolla Talks About Occupy Wall Street | Video | TheBlaze.com

    Some people have a way of breaking down an issue, laying it out in its simplest, most rudimentary form. Comic and podcaster Adam Carolla did just that recently when he unleashed what many conservatives will hail an acerbic yet painfully accurate debunking of the Occupy movement and its self-ascribed motivations. The nearly ten minute long lampooning of America’s new “f–king self-entitled monsters“ who ”think the world owes them a living” is peppered with very strong language, still, Carolla’s observations are worth listening through to the end.


    Among the many highlights in Carolla’s rant, he asks why the top “1 percent” of America paying 50 percent of all income tax in the country is not good enough for the Occupiers. He also observes how “envy” never before existed among Americans the way it does now, and that it, along with “shame” plays a crucial role in the Occupiers’ motivation and self-justification.
    Reflecting on how things used to be “back in the day,” Carolla states:


    “You took guys who built something, and you said ‘there’s a guy who accomplished something.‘ You didn’t say, ‘that guy didn’t pay his fair share.’ That guy paid millions of dollars last year, and you paid sh** and you’re pissed at him?”

    (The unedited version contains very strong language, so you may choose to listen to the edited version.)

    I'll have to listen to this when I get home. By and large I enjoy Carolla.

    ...We created a bunch of [badwording] self-entitled monsters. People are so far out
    of it in what they expect and what is realistic and what the rules should be for
    them and for the other guys. I want my Most Valuable Player trophy. . . .
    They think the world owes them a living. . . .

    They grew up and it's fine if you grow up in this little snow globe of a life where
    everything is awesome and there are no losers. But then you get into the real world,
    and you realize, "I'm a [badwording] loser," you're not doing well, and you're not
    making much money, and no one's giving you a participation trophy. Instead of looking
    in the mirror and going, "Why am I not doing better?", you find somebody who's got
    more stuff than you and say, "Hey, man, what do you need all that stuff for?" This
    is what's going on. They're feeling shame. They've been shamed by life, because
    they haven't been prepared for life.


    The real world doesn't care how pretty you are or what you do, all those lies told
    to you by your parents about how special you are. In the real world, you're just
    peon No. 27 who's putting in an application. And your plan is to put a rock through
    my window. That's your plan!..



    that's fairly on the money.

    That is a classic rant for the history books. He nailed it.....and he was funny at the same time.

    We hear the same whiny **** on this board daily. Wah...it's not FAIR...the rich should pay MORE. They should pay their "fair share" regardless of the fact that they pay theirs and any 500 slackers 'share'. Take every penny from the rich, the broke ass losers are still going to be broke ass losers. THEN who do you blame? Success is much more likely when you start with taking care of your own miserable pathetic existence.

    This debate seems to be about a mutual admiration society for conservatives. I shall retire to a debate starring common sense and reason.

    Carolla's spot on. There isn't much of a refutation without coming off whiny - which is why he's spot on.
