But this is how things work in Liberal World. Isn't that what you want?

Issues don't have labels, they have moral power or moral weakness

The man has just gained quite a bit of esteem in my eyes.

What he should have said

Apologizing for something I said 10 years ago, is so gay

He should have followed that up with

White peoples be crazy....

Apparently the offended people are not interested in forgiveness or redemption. Ever.

Funny how this site had no tolerance for James Gunns' jokes from over a decade ago.
Jimmy got shafted by people with no sense of crude, caustic, and sarcastic humor.
He is still a great writer and director in my opinion.
I understand that his jokes were just tacky jokes.
He used to write for Troma for Christ's sake.
He's not a kid fooker.
Is every comedian who appeared in 'The Aristocrats' now out of work indefinitely?
Lighten the hell up.

I would watch if Oscar the Grouch hosted.

Well I apologize for making that assumption. I was just going by your post history which is about 10% liberal drivel and 90% Orange Man Bad.

This is what a person does when their living is made off of what the public thinks of them.

Yeah, and John Wayne Gacy was always a great children's entertainer as Pogo, but people always get caught up on that other stuff.

Again, Gunn didn't get shafted by people with no sense of humour. He got shafted by people who had just watched Roseanne get publicly flayed and fired (along with everyone else who worked on her show) for one tasteless, offensive tweet which she later apologised for numerous times. They saw it as a response to her having Republican views.

Personally, I think the whole situation with both of them, and all the other people who got caught up in the fauxtrage, was ludicrous and pathetic. To me it showed how hyper-partisan things have become.

You see, if you want to monitor my OP’s look up the numerous anti-Obama threads I started.
You are an automatic thinker. Pedestrian.

And you're higher than me since your posts are 100 percent conservative garbage

I think the time is far overdue for everyone to stop focusing on what political party everyone belongs too, or assuming things based on which party they call themselves. Because I am pretty Liberal and I do not believe in gun control, and I also feel a comedian should be able to make fun of EVERYONE without having to apologize because its a minority or someone thinks it was mean. As long as the joke is poking fun and not being full out cruel.

He still kind of caved in the end.

Not surprising. You're really screwed either way in the modern age.

Guilt is tried in the court of public opinion/outrage now and exhibit A is your social media history. Can't say I feel bad, people dove in and this is what you get when you let the lunatics run the asylum.


I dont think it was caving.

Like you said he was stuck. But this was the best possible way to handle it IMO.

Say screw you I dont want the job, But I never intended to offend anyone and for that I do apologize.


Hell no, he INTENDED to OFFEND people, because it was FUNNY. The world needs to get over this sissy crap. I am glad he made some sort of a stand though, hopefully this will get the ball rolling into a catastrophic avalanche that buries this nonsense once and for all!

They might as well save us all the time and make it the entire alphabet.

All these PC movements are about control. You can't criticize x because that makes you an x-ist. Criticize Obama? Racist. Hate Hillary? Sexist. It's all about control and keeping people quiet.
