    Joan Rivers Tells It Like It Is

    Slurs While Defending Alec Baldwin, Tells America to “Relax” — WATCH VIDEOTruth rating: 10

    Joan Rivers unloads a string of slurs in a new video after being asked about the fallout over Alec Baldwin’s recent use of homophobic language.
    The comedian has no use for political correctness, and makes her case with some extremely sensitive terms.
    “Everybody, just relax,” says Rivers in response to the Baldwin situation.
    She goes on to say, “Everybody is either a wop, a n**ger, a k*ke, a ch*nk, a fairy, a mick… everybody’s something, so why don’t we all just calm down?”
    Rivers adds, “Be thankful that we’re all living in America, and stop everybody getting so damn uptight.”
    Do you think she has a point, or is she way off base?
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    She's way off base.

    I've made a point of not paying attention to what Celebutards from Hollyweird have to say on pretty much anything.
    I wish more people would do the same.

    I think she makes two good points:

    1) Comedians have no use for PC (except to make fun of it)

    2) Everyone is "something" (an ethnic or social minority of some kind)

    However, that's not what the Baldwin controversy is about. What it's about is how he used someone's sexual orientation as the basis of a slur.

    I'm sure right wing whack jobs love this piece.

    Much like they did this piece.

    Joan Rivers: Sarah Palin is a Nazi, ‘stupid’ Bristol couldn’t dance | The Daily Caller

    Oh wait...


    Honestly. Rivers is a used up wrinkled douche bag. Oh, and let's not forget, she calls her self a comic.

    So What ? Does any segment of society get special treatment or freedom from aspersions... Squat!

    Politically, I care little for A.B. It is interesting how MSNBC attempts to disguise media hypocrisy. PC is BS.

    Courtesy counts. Kindness counts. These are lacking in teaching, thought, and actions.

    I was trying to post a comment in another racial thread that was suddenly closed for review...but my comment applies here, and shows why Baldwin and Rivers (and I've always liked Joan Rivers) are simply wrong. The thread was concerning the "right" of whites to use the n-word...but I think we can all agree that the same principle applies when it comes to homophobic slurs...or slurs of any type.

    ============begin paste=========

    The same people who think it should be okay to use the n-word whenever they want are the same kind of people who think it should be okay to say queer, kike, spic, macaca, hymie, raghead, chink, Jew-boy, wetback, faggot, bluegum, coon, rice-n***er, slopehead, wop, zipperhead...the list goes on. There's no NEED to use these words. If someone who really is Jewish wants to call his fellow Jews "kikes", fine, he can do that - Mel Brooks was famous for making fun of his fellow Jews (and he's still the best comedy director ever). If blacks want to call each other names, fine. If a Hispanic wants to call his fellow Hispanics spics, fine.

    You see where I'm going with this - if you want to use the words against your OWN kind...fine. That's between you and those of your own kind, whatever your particular kind may be.

    In fact, if you'll think about it, it's not even about race or ethnicity - it's about those within a group being the ONLY ones who can really get away with insulting those who are a part of that group. For instance, if one Marine calls another Marine a 'Jarhead', they'll likely both laugh about it...but if I walk up and call some Marine a 'Jarhead', he'll most likely laugh with me (or more likely laugh AT me)...but he might also punch me in the mouth and dare me to do something about it (and it would be stupid of me to assume that the Marine would do otherwise). For another example, if I were to walk up to one of my fellow whites in the MS Delta and call them a redneck, he'll probably laugh about it and proudly agree...but he just might see it in the way that I'm no longer a Southerner and have lost any right to call him a redneck, and things might go downhill from there.

    It even applies to religion - if one Southern Baptist (and I was one, once) refers to a SB preacher as "a real hellfire-and-brimstone preacher", other SB's would laugh about it and nod their heads in agreement...but if a Muslim says that about a SB preacher, you'd probably agree that there wouldn't be any laughter, that things might be taking a very dangerous turn, indeed. "How dare that Muslim think he can talk about our preacher that way? He ain't one of us!"

    This is why it's okay for blacks to use the n-word, but not us. It's not about race or ethnicity, but about us not being part of that particular group.

    ============end paste=============

    And this is why it's okay for LGBT's to call each other insulting slurs, but it's NOT okay for those of us who are straight to do so. We're not (or at least most of us are not) part of that group.

    Baldwin is free to cast as many aspersions and slurs as he wants to. Last time I looked, he hasn't been thrown in jail for what he said

    But freedom includes a businesses freedom to hire and fire him
