'You Guys All Have Blood On Your Hands'
Adam Carolla is angry with the Huffington Post. You'll like him when he's angry. A lot:
“You are the system, Gavin Newsom,” Carolla said. “Fix the system, but you won’t fix the system, because you know what it takes to fix the system and you’re a f***ing coward. And guys like Huffington Post — you guys f***ing line up behind these people and let me tell you something, you guys all have blood on your hands, because the problem could be fixed. It’s a problem, and it’s a problem that involves bodies. People die every year.”
“There’s people getting shot,” Carolla added. “There’s brown people shooting other brown people on the streets of Chicago every f***ing day of the week. And you guys sit there silently. If it was a Sandy Hook situation or anything else, you’d be all up in arms. But you can’t say a word, so you sit there with your f***ing coward hands over your f***ing little cowardly soup coolers. And then when somebody has the guts to say something — to speak the truth for f***ing one hot second, you jump up his ass and call him a racist. Thus, you silence the media. Now you perpetuate the problem.”
Carolla then took aim at the media as a whole.
“The news media — it’s your job to try to do something,” he said. “It’s your job to blow the lid off these things. This is an epidemic. … If this was sickle cell, you guys would be talking about it. But it’s not. It’s a social issue. It involves family. It involves some judgment and some finger-pointing. And you’re not willing to do that because you’re p***y cowards. You are willing to point fingers at me. You’ll point fingers all day long. But you won’t point fingers where they belong, which are at these families and consequently, kids are living in poverty.”
“Generations are rolling over in poverty, and they’re dying,” he continued. “They’re shooting each other. They’re stabbing each other. They’re killing each other. You won’t say a word. The politicians won’t say a word. The so-called leaders won’t say a f***ing word. And when I say a f***ing word, I’m called a racist so you can silence me. Good have it your way — nobody say a f***ing word and then we’ll watch all the black and brown people just go off into poverty and we’ll hear all the stories about the 14-year-olds on the streets of Chicago being shot by other 14-year-olds. Is that your plan? You f***ing coward p***ies.”
Read the whole f***ing thing. (And/or listen to the audio of Carolla at the Daily Caller, the blistering tone of which would likely make Lee Ermey blush.)
Though I'm not sure I entirely agree with Carolla's conclusion:
You have the racist finger out all the time. But the finger you use for personal responsibility — that stays up your ass. That never leaves your ass***, you hypocritical p***ies.”
Sure it does. And when it happens, the HuffPo live tweets the details.
