The Eighth Dirty Word You Can't Say on Television

Timothy Birdnow

Is it just me, or does this whole tempest about Trump calling Haiti and Africa a euphamism for a toilet remind anyone else of the George Carlin 7 Dirty Words You Can't Say on Television?

For those who are too young or just don't know (or remember) George CArlin made his fame with the infamous "7 dirty words" shtick in which he loudly and proudly used them while saying "you can't say that". Here is a part of the monologue (sans the dirty part): I love words. I thank you for hearing my words.

I want to tell you something about words that I think is important.

They're my work, they're my play, they're my passion.

Words are all we have, really. We have thoughts but thoughts are fluid, y'know like, woo woo woo woo, POP! Then we assign a word to a thought and we're stuck with that word for that thought, so be careful with words.

I like to think that yeah, the same words that hurt can heal, it's a matter of how you pick them.

[...]

There are some that would have you not use certain words.

Yeah, there are 400,000 words in the English language and there are 7 of them that you can't say on television. What a ratio that is!

399,993 to 7. They must really be bad. They'd have to be outrageous to be separated from a group that large.

All of you over here, you 7, baaad words!

End excerpt.

And nowhere is S%$th*\le anywhere visible on the list. Nowhere. zip.

George Carlin was a hero to the liberals during the '70's, I might add.

Of course, Carlin was using the words for shock value, and he used them while "discussing" their being banned, to ustify using them gratuitously. That is precisely what we are seeing with the media and their cigar store indian faux outrage at Trump calling certain Third World countries by that name. In almost every report the media has been quick to use the term they claim Trump has made (and there is no real reason to believe he said it as the primary report comes from Durbin the Turban, the sheik of the Burning Bland). They are delighting in "shocking" the virgin ears of conservatives - they think the maority of conservatives are naive and have never heard such things, and they are doing it while attacking Trump, trying to drive a wedge between him and his nerdy, square, blushing virginal base. That's how they see us.

In my latest American Thinker blogpost I refer to liberals as uveniles, and this instance buttresses my point; like bratty teenagers, they think adults are fools and uncool dweebs and delight in shocking and offending. They think they are the first to do this and that we adults know so little that we are horrified to have our illusitons shattered. They don't know that we did the same when we were their age, and grew up to learn that our parents really did know what they were talking about. That comes with maturity. Liberals are not mature, and this whole tempest in a teapot over Trump and his outhouse comment illustrates quite plainly just how uvenile they are.

The juveniles made George Carlin a superstar because he appealed to their acting out. Now, as adults running the news media and government, they are employing their own seven dirty words, and are the ones who are shocked. Me thinks they doth protest too much.
