So, in 2006, they made a movie, called “Death of a President.” It was based on the assassination of George W. Bush.
Do you remember the outcry, the protests, and the movie executives getting reprimanded and fired? Nope, me either, because it didn’t happen.
September, 2008, Russell Brand, scumbag sex-addict British comedian, at the MTV movie awards, said this:
But I know America to be a forward thinking country because otherwise why would you have let that retard cowboy fella be president for eight years?
We were very impressed. We thought it was nice of you to let him have a go, because, in England, he wouldn’t be trusted with a pair of scissors.
Remember the outcries, the protests that a foreigner made fun of our president, the protests of using the word “retard” in relation to a sitting president that resulted in Russell Brand not appearing in America for awhile? Nope. Brand actually hosted the same awards the next year. You can watch his mocking speech here; it’s about a minute into the video.
Here are some of the mocking pictures of George W. Bush when he was president.
Remember all the outcries over these? No, no you don’t. Because there weren’t any, at least not in the main stream media.
I won’t even go into the mocking of Ronald Reagan. I was keen to it because I had just started following politics and I liked President Reagan. Katied Couric, America’s favorite little cutie-pie, called him an “air-head” once, on national TV.
So now a rodeo clown makes fun of Obama. And, “gasp” it’s so horrible. So, here’s the question. Can we not make fun of the president because he’s black? That’s really the issue here, isn’t it?
Honestly, I was a big follower of “The Daily Show” until the Clinton-Lewinski scandal. I stopped watching because, even though I thought he had it coming, I couldn’t stand to watch the constant mocking and jokes. I stopped watching.
I think we should show some respect to the office, no matter how much we don’t like the person holding it. However, I didn’t set the precedent. It’s been established. The media has allowed all-out mocking of presidents. Well, you know, all the republicans, anyway.
Was the rodeo incident inappropriate? I don’t know. I wouldn’t have done it. But I don’t think anyone should lose their job over it. The NAACP wants an investigation by the Secret Service. Predictable, I suppose. But look at this stuff they said about Bush and there was never a peep. No, don’t even argue with me. Not about this. They made a movie about his assassination, for God’s sake.
So we’re battling two things here. The media’s love affair with liberals, and the “For God’s sake, you can’t make fun of the president because he’s black” factor.
Free speech, baby. Too damn bad. It’s sad that you make the rules and then change them. The guy’s the president, and that trumps being black, at least when it comes to the shit you gotta take.
All presidents take their fair share of the stabs.
If you really want some insight, read Bush’s book, “Decision Points” and he talks about taking the stabs. Stand-up guy, I don’t care who you are.
Sorry, rodeo clown, you’re the victim of the national mania of politically correct insanity.
