Tracy Morgan under fire for ‘retarded’ jokes | Inside TV | EW.com. You know the standard sermonette: I’m totally for freedom of speech, even for the speech I dislike, and so on; so I won’t bother you with the rest of the clichéd disclaimer.
But talking about stabbing a gay son and pretending it is a joke, is not a joke, either. It’s plain, distilled bigotry. Tracy Morgan learned this the hard way, because none of his peers (but Chris Rock, albeit briefly) gave him a free pass. Then he had to face the GLBT Inquisition, i.e. GLAAD who toured him to an entire “rehabilitation” tour, in which he apologized and came out… for gay marriage. GLAAD should have affirmed its almighty authority in all things gay, but Morgan looked like he was desperately looking to save his never-that-bright-now-crumbling career. Anyway, he played by the rules and was promptly forgiven after his heresy retraction.
Still, he had bills to pay and he had to develop “new material” for his so-called “stand-up comedy routine”. So he turned to a safe haven (or so he thought): trashing conservative women, but with a difference: trashing their children with disabilities, too.
Why not? After all, he had HUGE success by demeaning Sarah Palin and her whole family is fair game by decree of the left-leaning intelligentsia, i.e. Hollywood. NOW, and any other women’s (or womyn’s) right organizations ever dared to protest the sexist way all things Palin are handled on the lamestream media. Trig, her son is not big deal, too, according to this insane logic.
Tracy, you never were that funny, either.
