Probably because he was supporting conspiracy buffs. I did not make any of these. I just thought ol' George hit on these current problems years
ago, and no one really listened. I love how they flash "George Carlin, actor/comedian" under his face while he was being very serious.
Carlin like many others suffered from "seeing reality for what it is", or as Southpark calls it, Assburgers.
Bill Hicks, Carlin, and Don Knotts, 3 comedians who saw things for what they were, Don Knotts literally "saw" reality I think.
Is that not a trick of the truly great comedians though? They make you laugh so hard it almost hurts and at something so silly that it just can't be
true. Except it is. After the laughter stops, people start to think about what was really just said.
He may have been supporting 'conspiracy buffs', but that does not mean that he was advocating the ridiculous nonsense of shape-shifting lizard
people. In my opinion, a few of the images in that video were disrespecting George Carlin.
The first time I ever heard a thing about George Carlin was after watching Zeitgeist The Movie. Being a Brit and living now in Holland he has never
really been on tv here. Zeitgeist features his religion rant. I don't know what it is about his delivery that appeals to me but I think it is the
barely veiled biting scorn and sarcasm combined with fact. I think he is possibly the most cerebral comedian I have ever heard. I ended up spending
several days watching just about every show he made courtesy of youtube and similar sites, and then the various talk show clips and other bits and
pieces. The man was consistently intellectual and critical. A true patriot, nothing less.
Now, I must go and find me some blue food. Its a conspiracy right there!

In deference to the OP and out of my respect for my favourite comedian, I think this shows a little more of his skill and intelligence. He's like a
60 year old rapper in this one but it's oh so cerebral and real.
