Greg Gutfeld must have been jealous of all the attention Bob Beckel got when he told CBS to take its Amazing Race show "and shove it" a few days ago. Either that or there's something in the water (or the Fox brass' instructions) at The Five that has them looking for reasons to become unhinged. Yesterday's excuse was Jim Carrey's Funny or Die video spoofing Charlton Heston and the NRA. Whatever the reason, Gutfeld accused Carrey of killing more people than "all the rifles combined." Really. And, of course, the whole thing got re-played over and over on Fox.
From Video Cafe:
GUTFELD: “(Carrey) is the most pathetic tool on the face of the earth. And I hope his career is dead, and he ends up sleeping in a car the way his life began. This video only made me want to go out and only buy a gun. He thinks this is biting satire and going after rural America and a dead man. Let’s talk about Charlton Heston. Charlton Heston was one of the first actors to be behind the civil rights movement and march. What did this jackass Jim Carrey do? He was behind the anti-vaccine panic. There are what, 165,000 people that died from measles last year, according to the World Health Organization.”
“Jim Carrey has killed more people than all the rifles combined,” Gutfeld continued. “He is a dirty, stinking coward. He is a moral coward. He did a video attacking rural America. But he wouldn’t do video about gangs, which kills way more people with handguns — he wouldn’t do that because he is worried about his career. Such a pathetic, sad, little freak. He is a jiberring mess. He is a modern bigot, he is a modern bigot. He is a bottomless pit of insecurity and the desire for acceptance is why he is doing this, because he knows in his heart he is a fraud.”
So according to Gutfeld, homelessness is a suitable punishment, or just deserts, for holding an unpopular opinion.
The last time I saw this much hatred towards a white person, it was Sandra Fluke.
The green monster of unbridled envy raises its ugly head.
Isn’t envy one of the seven mortal sins? …. Along with wrath?
