The Patriot Ass

So it only took a spamming jackass to get me blogging again.  
First the e-mail (an alleged anti-political correctness
tirade by Andy Rooney) then my reply.

Andy Rooney said on "60 Minutes" a few weeks back:

I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of
anything except numbers. The only things I can think
of that are truly discriminatory are things like the
United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black
Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America. Try
to have things like the UnitedCaucasianCollege Fund,
Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or
Miss White America; and see what happens...Jesse
Jackson will be knocking down your door.

Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes
you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat
or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving
to the ball game.

I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason,
that is why there are no girls allowed. Girls belong
in the Girl Scouts! ARE YOU LISTENING MARTHA BURKE?

I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is
not a phobia, it is an opinion.

I have the right "NOT" to be tolerant of others
because they are different, weird, or tick me off.

When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in
cities where 70% of the population is black, that is
not racial profiling, it is the Law of Probability.

I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, a
pack of cigarettes, a newspaper or a hotel room, you
must do it in English! As a matter of fact, if you
want to be an American citizen, you should have to
speak English!

My father and grandfather didn't die in vain so you
can leave the countries you were born in to come over
and disrespect ours.

I think the police should have every right to shoot
your sorry ass if you threaten them after they tell
you to stop. If you can't understand the word "freeze"
or "stop" in English, see the above lines.

I don't think just because you were not born in this
country, you are qualified for any special loan
programs, government sponsored bank loans or tax
breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop,
trinket store, or any other business.

We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries
and risk our lives in wars to defend their freedoms,
so that decades later they could come over here and
tell us our constitution is a living document; and
open to their interpretations.

I don't hate the rich I don't pity the poor.

I know pro wrestling is fake, but so are movies and
television. That doesn't stop you from watching them.

I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny
he made and continue to make more. If it ticks you
off, go and invent the next operating system that's
better, and put your name on the building.

It doesn't take a whole village to raise a child
right, but it does take a parent to stand up to the
kid; and smack their little behinds when necessary,
and say "NO!"

I think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want
them, but please don't pretend they are a political
statement. And, please, stay home until that new lip
ring heals. I don't want to look at your ugly infected
mouth as you serve me French fries!

I am sick of "Political Correctness." I know a lot of
black people, and not a single one of them was born in
Africa; so how can they be "African-Americans"?
Besides, Africa is a continent. I don't go around
saying I am a European-American because my great,
great, great, great, great, great grandfather was from
Europe. I am proud to be from America and nowhere else


And if you don't like my point of view, tough...

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES
OF AMERICA, AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS,
ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND
JUSTICE FOR ALL! AMEN!

I was asked to send this on if I agree or delete if I
don't. It is said that 86% of Americans believe in
God. Therefore I have a very hard time understanding
why there is such a problem in having "In God We
Trust" on our money and having "God" in the Pledge of
Allegiance. Why don't we just tell the 14% to Shut Up
,lay down and BE QUIET!!!

If you agree, pass this on, if not delete. .

And here's my reply:

We already have White Entertainment Television. It's
called ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX TV.

True, believing homosexuality is wrong is an opinion.
It's just a stupid opinion.

I also have the right to NOT be tolerant of whoever
wrote this e-mail. That doesn't mean I get to put
him/her in jail or even pull his car over simply
because I don't like the way he looks.

The Law of Probability? If 70% of city-dwellers are
black then why aren't 70% of mayors, city officials,
police officers, CEOs and teachers black? If
California is quickly becoming a white-minority state,
shouldn't this "Law" mean that English speakers be
expected to order cigarettes, porn and copies of
"Jackass Monthly" in Spanish?

By "giving aid" to other foreign countires, which
bombing are you referring to?

Bill Gates is choosing NOT to keep every penny he made
and is pumping money into education and fighting
disease in other countires (including Africa by the
way).

I doubt that 86% of Americans believe in God, but if
they do I am sure many would say that God, if he
exists, would say this e-mail writer is kind of
missing some major "themes" in the Old and New
Testament...say, like, tolerance...loving thy
neighbor...having faith...building a better
world...you know, little things like that.

Hear, hear! Nick got this email from his MOM, and responded so viciously that he was blacklisted from the family for several days. What kind of morons keep forwarding this crizap?

Andy Rooney died well before this email was written by whomever wrote it. So no point in rebutting...the author already shat upon his own integrity by deceiving the populace.


Too much of this and you gonna have a heart attack, Donohoe.

Hear hear on Andy Rooney...

You have no idea what he was talking about...

Nobody "shat" on anything...he said the 100% truth!!! Anyone who doesn't think so isn't reading his words the right way...

And don't come back by saying I'm racist because I am anything but...but let's call a spade a spade. Maybe the white house is mostly full of asshole rich white men (which I do not support)...but that doesn't mean the rest of the people in the world that are white are asshole rich people either....

Can't we just look at things as they are and not play the race color?????? PLEASE!!!!!!

First, Rooney most likely didn't write this. Whoever wrote it doubted that his opinions would be taken seriously...so he stole Rooney's name. That says something.

Second, who exactly are you calling a spade?

Third, I'll try to read his words the right way. I'll be back in a minute...........Okay I'm back, and, yup, he still sounds like an ignoramus.

Lastly, I don't think all white people (rich or poor) are assholes. But white folks don't get to say "I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers." Well, sure, I guess they do get to say that cuz, hell, it's a free country isn't it? But saying that kind of thing, well, it just makes us sound like assholes.

Andy Rooney is not dead, people. But I don't think he wrote that either. Still, it has some good points. For example, African-Americans can be black or white. If you were born in Africa and moved to America and gained citizenship, then you would be an African-American whether you are white, black, yellow, or red.

Andy Rooney is not dead, so you are wrong there, diebold. However, I don't believe he wrote that either. Although the author does make some good points, such as Americans being Americans, not African-American or European-American, etc. Also, not every arrest of a "minority" is a hate crime or racial profiling. If I was a cop, I would arrest a criminal too. And African-American is a stupid term just like any other racial term to describe a group of people and make them somehow different from everyone else.

Andy Rooney DID NOT write this. You should do a little research before posting this kind of stuff as truth. Kind of cuts your credibility down a knotch or two.
