Punditry KKKramer by Jeffrey Miller November 20, 2006 written by Jeffrey Miller November 20, 2006 I guess it is a good thing Michael Richards never directed a movie on the life of Christ – or otherwise his racist outburst against blacks at the Laugh Factory would be getting a whole lot of media attention. *Title came from Steve Dillard’s post at Southern Appeal. 14 comments 0 FacebookTwitterGoogle +Pinterest Jeffrey Miller previous post Future Priests of the Third Millennium next post A full-scale Ronald Reagan conservative You may also like Brokeback Cathedral February 19, 2007 Bad Translation Indult November 20, 2005 Vatican offers ‘time off purgatory’ to followers of...

Sad. Hoodlum November 21, 2006 - 2:11 am Hey Jeff, the fact that Richards is a B list celebrity who has done nothing in the last (almost ) decade, while Gibson was doing some illegal, had the police try and cover it up, and had a major motion picture project on the way is probably why the media is giving it less play. But feel free to wallow in your conspiracy theory. P.S. While I understand your religion is not big on freedom of speech, censoring comments simply because the poster is smarter than you is sad. lar November 21, 2006 - 4:11 am P.S.

Hoodlum ^^^^ lol,smart people do not feel the need to remind others of their smartness. R November 21, 2006 - 7:26 am I’m rather inclined to agree with Hoodlum here – I’ve never even heard of this guy before. Andy November 21, 2006 - 8:38 am Michael Richards is a (relatively) famous person show said these thing while COMPLETELY SOBER. While inebriation doesn’t excuse Mel Gibson for what he said, this was unprovoked by substance. The content was also much, much worse. Scott W November 21, 2006 - 8:52 am I notice in the video comments the usual, “The mask is off! Now we see who he really is!” Check out Mark Shea for an analysis of this bit of bad thinking: http://www.mark-shea.com/name1.html Sister Yesterday November 21, 2006 - 8:57 am Have you noticed that people who are arrogant enough to tell you how smart they are generally aren’t all that smart? That pretty much leaves them with arrogance! Kind of reminds me of lone terrorists and unibombers etc. Pray for the poor Hoody. As to Michael Richards-he is in no way in the same class with Mel Gibson – Gibson actually has done some major league work. Also – he was personally horrified by what he had said and done and is endeavouring to learn from it. All people sin, but some realize it and repent. BTW – this was given some big airplay in Canada which surprised me. The TV news even ran the tape with the offensive words beeped out. Whatever popularity Richards had is pretty much gone now. A lot of people liked his character on Seinfield. He always annoyed the heck out of me – another arrogant idiot. ” A little learning is a dangerous thing” – true, true, true. Jeff Miller November 21, 2006 - 9:08 am Hoodlum, Your post got deleted since you felt you could come on my blog and charge me with Antisemitism or Jewish conspiracy theories. If you were so smart and had been reading my blog you would never have made such an dumb statement. Scott W November 21, 2006 - 9:26 am As to Michael Richards-he is in no way in the same class with Mel Gibson – Gibson actually has done some major league work. Agreed. But this is a good opportunity to apply the Sin-doesn’t-name-us rule to a (presumably) non-Catholic. Thus making mincemeat of the charge that we only defend our own. John November 21, 2006 - 1:51 pm I may sound stupid here, but from what I have heard, Mel Gibson never said he hated Jews, just that they “start all wars”. Well I have heard countless of people blame the Germans for starting war after war and being militaristic, and to not think that if and when there is a huge blow up, and lets all be honest the only reason the Islamic world hates us is our undying support of Israel not for any other reason. The old “they hate our way of Life” is just plain garbage as UBL and Al Quada is not sitting in a cave reading the Declaration of Indepence or the Constitutions saying “I hate those Americans”. I have heard very very few politicians with guts come out and be honest about this fact, but this has been a spin from day one so that Americans and the world dont turn on the Jews. So saying that Jews start all wars may be a bit off as they may not actually start them-but it has been the cause of hatred and tension since the Balfour declaration and then the end of WWII when the British decided to hand over someone else land and hightail out of their (as they themselvs were being killed off by ZIONIST Terriorists), history does go full circle does it not? Catherine L November 21, 2006 - 3:00 pm and lets all be honest the only reason the Islamic world hates us is our undying support of Israel not for any other reason. The old “they hate our way of Life” is just plain garbage as UBL and Al Quada is not sitting in a cave reading the Declaration of Indepence or the Constitutions saying “I hate those Americans”. Actually, John, bin Laden was quite frank in stating what he expects of us. It’s basically to kick the Jews out of Israel and submit to Sharia. So yes, the presence of Jews in the world is an irritant, as is the presence of wine, women in the workforce, and a secular government in the Philippines. And don’t forget that we haven’t endorsed the Kyoto accords. http://observer.guardian.co.uk/worldview/story/0,11581,845725,00.html Scott W November 21, 2006 - 3:34 pm And don’t forget that we haven’t endorsed the Kyoto accords. Wow. That point doesn’t get much play in the MSM does it? 🙂 Catherine L November 21, 2006 - 4:57 pm Yes, endorsing the Kyoto accords would go a long way to appeasing the jihadists. Then we would finally have the bird-chirping, butterfly-flying, daisies-in-the-hair, sharia utopia that they’re promoting. JohnS November 21, 2006 - 9:08 pm Jeff, let’s be honest, its probably just simply a good thing that Michael Richards has never done a movie on the life of Christ. Period. Comments are closed.
