Good Riddance, George Carlin

George Carlin, who never failed to piss off all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, died from a heart attack last night at the age of 71 in Los Angeles.

These comments of his sum up his shitty attitude:

His comedic sensibility revolved around a central theme: humanity is a cursed, doomed species.

“I don’t have any beliefs or allegiances. I don’t believe in this country, I don’t believe in religion, or a god, and I don’t believe in all these man-made institutional ideas,” he told Reuters in a 2001 interview.

Carlin told Playboy in 2005 that he looked forward to an afterlife where he could watch the decline of civilization on a “heavenly CNN.”

“The world is a big theater-in-the round as far as I’m concerned, and I’d love to watch it spin itself into oblivion,” he said. “Tune in and watch the human adventure.”

In a rant about the Pledge of Allegiance, he opined:

These in school kids are required under the threat of social pressure, they’ll get ostracized, for some reason they’ll fuck with you in these schools today. It’s mandatory let’s say, that you pledge allegiance. Think of these words: pledge allegiance. Now, we’re not the only country that has that.

“No country ever had a Pledge of Allegiance except us and Germany under Hitler and Italy under Mussolini. The Fascists, the Nazis, and us. That will tell you the kind of company we keep, okay?”

The kind of company we keep??
Well hell, ol’ George made alot of money in a country with a scary pledge. Not only that, this country defeated the Fascists and Nazis so that Carlin could use his freedom to bad-mouth America.

I’m an agnostic, so I don’t care either way about religion. But when it comes to reaping the benefits of a country that protects your way of life and ensures that you can stand on a stage and spew all the crap you want without being dragged off to a Gulag, I’d say a little gratitude is in order.

The only reason Carlin got on stage was to throw a turd in the punchbowl because that’s just the kinda prankster he was. We know he was a leftwingnutbag who hated the country, the military, and any vestiges of patriotism. We got it.

Note to Hollywood entertainers like Carlin and like-minded fans: The next time you want to take a liberal guilt trip over all the opportunities and the good life you have in this country, take a one-way trip out of the U.S. for one that will better accommodate your ideology. It’s one thing to read about or to briefly visit a foreign country; it’s quite another to actually be subjugated with no possible way out.

He hadn’t really done anything funny since “Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television.”
Later in life Carlin morphed into a bitter, mealy-mouthed, self-absorbed, obnoxious parody. He made a living out of demonstrating just how pointlessly caustic he could be. He thought he was some kind of a Sage who had it all over the rest of us peons. He believed he blessed humanity with the mere presence of his wit and wisdom, and we were supposed to bask in the glow.

That’s why his popularity waned. Us ‘peons’ were sick of his condescending bullshit.
Fuck you Carlin. Good riddance.

  1. SteveS,

    Let me clarify: I’m agnostic and I don’t have a ‘religion’, Christian or otherwise.
    I have a more straightforward, realistic, pragmatic approach to this problem-filled world, which includes gratitude for the freedoms most Americans enjoy, and Carlin took for granted while he spewed his stupid, unappreciative, inane bullshit. He went way beyond ‘pointing out inconsistencies of language and simply being a critic’. He fancied himself to be some kind of social commentator, yet he morphed into a raving lunatic with no redeeming social qualities.

    Yeah asshole, you have a ‘right not to be grateful’, and that’s certainly a ‘right’ that mealy-mouthed asshats take advantage of without ever having to do what it takes to preserve it.

    Some impact.

    Obnoxious ‘comedians’ regurgitate anti-American venom in the guise of ‘social criticism’ when they’re little more than a bunch of puerile attention whores.

    I’m intolerant as well; of nihilist fucktards with no purpose in life other than denigrating the country, rather than providing insight with constructive criticism. The ones who equate patriotism with ‘jingoism’. Like Carlin. And you.

    Yep, some ideas are just too stupid.

  2. You’ve dropped “I’m agnostic” twice now as though it’s a sitting-post in the middle between “atheist” and “theist.”

    It isn’t.

    “Agnostic” means “I do not know whether there is a God.”

    “Atheist” means “I do not believe in a God.”

    They answer two profoundly different philosophical questions and you make a retard out of yourself every time you try and stuff “agnostic” in a place it doesn’t actually belong. This isn’t “grammar nazi” behavior, here – you’re genuinely dropping a non-sequitor and expecting it to matter. There are AGNOSTIC CHRISTIANS. In point of fact, anyone who says (and means) “God is unknowable” is saying PRECISELY THAT. AGNOSTIC. CHRISTIAN.

    Carlin made his early career on being offensive, following in the footsteps of Lenny Bruce. He made his later career by pointing out inconsistencies of language and simply being a critic. Some people like criticism. Some people don’t. Sorry you felt the need to shit on someone who made a pretty solid impact.

    Also? “You live in a country that gives you the right, be grateful.” No. Fuck that. I live in a country that gives me THE RIGHT NOT TO BE GRATEFUL. There are certain ideas, certain policies, certain PEOPLE that aren’t worth any respect – one of them is the jingoist. Another is the fundamentalist.

    I stand for intolerance – because some ideas are just too stupid.

  3. enFARCEr,

    It figures a leftwingnut like you would fawn over an asshat like Carlin. ‘Tarded minds think alike. As for Falwell, I’m agnostic, so I didn’t give one hair on Christ’s ass when he kicked.

    Have a nice life.

  4. I’d expect as much from a neocon thumbdick. I bet you wailed like a widow when that fat hateful swine Jerry Falwell kicked the bucket, and he did more harm to this world than Carlin ever possibly could have.

  5. eviscerator,

    I doubt it, sweetpea. He didn’t like criticism of his particular brand of ‘humor’.

    Negative? I calls it as I sees it.

  6. Thanks for stating this. I absolutely agree. It is right on imho. The shock jock assholes are assholes. They tear down. Fuck ’em all and good riddance.

  7. Kevin,

    George Carlin could have taken the same advice. He took himself way too seriously, and thought mistakenly, that others felt the same way. He wanted to ‘cheese people off’ with vile, asinine, anti-American bullshit. He succeeded. In the process, he ceased being funny years ago. Instead, he became a ranting lunatic who never had the decency to enjoy his freedoms or to be embarrased at his own feckless behavior. As a retired U.S Soldier and war veteran, I saw nothing humorous about Carlin’s stupidity. Buh bye, George. Assclown.

    Har har har,

    SFC MAC

  8. Oh lighten up man, he’s still warm. It’s sounds like you’re just the kind of person he aspired to cheese off. Well done George, rest in peace.
