Did you see the HBO documentary? Its very good, but the end of the second half they cut and edited his comments into a leftist political message. The made it seem as if he was an advocate for censorship and total government control.

Carlin was a pretty big lefty


notlazarus1010 t1_j0qtxjd wrote

a lefty by standards from decades ago. today he’d be centrist-righty.


Shebatski t1_j0qug3p wrote

Yeah sure, he called for the elimination of all golf courses to be transformed into housing for the homeless. Totally a righty position lmao

Edit: also Carlin, in reference to Bush Jr "I have an addendum to that. The real looting in this country takes place in the transfer of the wealth from the poor to the rich... The rich have been made richer under this criminal, fascist president and his government."

Thanks for the laugh at least!


GayBird69 t1_j0qxr78 wrote

bullshit. See the comment below or any interview with his daughter and they bring this up, he constantly advocated for wealth distribution, highly critical of religion, pro gun control, pro gay rights. Good try though.

George Carlin was basically a marxist but would have wanted to be referred to as a Carlinist

America is crazy imo, simply having like rational thought, and being anti establishment, and like wanting corporations and the systems that are in place to not purposely opress people. Its a big club and you aint in it

Sure, but NWA was arrest over three words. Group of rappers arrested over three words, while it took seven words to get a white comedian arrested. Exchange rate varies.


400asa t1_j0t4qww wrote

The words being "fuck the police".

I'm French so it feels somewhat okay to get at least arrested for that, cause it's illegal to insult a government employee. Insulting people at all can cause prejudice legally.Telling someone to kts on social media can get you up to 3yrs in jail, 5 if it's a kid.

But in the USA freedom of speech is a bit more "free" isn't it ? On the paper ?

So how do they work around that, civil court ?

(light googling)

Nvm, the cops arrested NWA with some bullshit maneuver, not because of the lyrics LMAO.


FlyWithChrist t1_j0t5jzq wrote

How can insulting someone being illegal feel somewhat ok lmao especially a government employee, it’s the DUTY of a citizen to insult the government


Beliadin t1_j0tk2sn wrote

Smacks of Lèse-majesté... I thought you guys got rid of that in 1789

Any kind of incitement to violence, hate speech or similar should if course be illegal towards authorities as it should be against all others, but just insulting people seems ridiculous


Goalie_deacon t1_j0tw6cg wrote

It worked out for NWA, as they still made a ton of money. Also, the law they were arrested under is no longer on the books. It happened in Michigan, and the law was repealed about 20 years ago.


laughingRiles t1_j0tzw57 wrote

You can say anything you want, but you are not free from repercussion for the context of your speech. Honestly with fuck the police the charge usually has to do with inflammatory speech, inciting a riot, or the ever popular shouldn't be able to exist as a single charge resisting arrest

Television in the ‘70s was laughably prude by today’s standards. The bathroom shown on The Brady Bunch didn’t have a toilet because it was seen as offensive to show one on TV.

The real comedy

>Tom Schneider, then a young assistant district attorney, had been at Carlin's show. In the office the next day, Schneider says in the documentary, Carlin was brought in, accused of disturbing the peace.

Schneider's boss, who knew he'd been at the show, asked him if Carlin had disturbed the peace; Schneider told him Carlin received a standing ovation.

The charges were dismissed in December 1972
