Buh-Bye, Charles Barkley: Don’t Let the Door Hit You on the Way Out

By Debbie Schlussel
It always amazes me how some so-called conservatives will idolize “conservative” celebs, just because they claim they are conservative or Republican. Doesn’t matter how immoral and offensive their behavior. So desperate for celebrity in the GOP that all caution is thrown to the wind.
An example is blowhard Ted Nugent. The man is a Vietnam War draft-dodger and a wealthy deadbeat parent of at least one of the children he fathered out of wedlock (until a court finally ordered him to pay after he fought it tooth and nail). This is a conservative? No. Just a stinking hypocrite. He keeps claiming he’ll run for Governor of Michigan. G-d help us. (More details on his less than “conservative” life here.)
Then, there’s blowhard Charles Barkley, an overgrown punk. Conservative jock sniffers from all over worshipped this racist merely because he said he was a Republican and was going to run for Governor of Alabama.

Buh-Bye, Charles Barkley!

Sorry, but a guy who says, “That’s what I hate about F-cking White people” (in this case, the F-word was an adjective, not a verb he performed with groupies), will never get my admiration or support, regardless of which political party he identifies with. Ditto for a guy who says, “I am not a role model,” when he made millions to be just that. Both of those apply to Charles Barkley. Plus, there’s his record of violence, arrests, and gambling addiction (blew $10 million). But, regardless of those things, Barkley got the worship of many Republicans and conservatives.
Not this one.
Well, now the joke is on them. Barkley says he’s switched back to the Democratic party and will run for Governor of Alabama in 2010. Yeah, we’ve heard that before. Don’t hold your breath.
Barkley said he switched parties because the Republican party “lost their minds.” No, the party lost its mind when it proudly accepted this racist as a member. Now that he’s gone, it’s good riddance. Now, the Democratic Party is welcoming him. He’ll be more at home with the rest of the anti-White, anti-Semitic racists who make it their home. Why TNT continues to employ and broadcast this racist over the airwaves is a good question.
Charles Barkley? Fat, old, racist, and washed up, he’s out. Gnarls Barkley–far more pleasant to listen to.

Patrick Swayze resides in the “whatever happened to _____” file. The low point of his career was when he swirled Baba Wawa on the dance floor during one of her soft ball interviews back in 1985.

Debbie,
Another great gem was Barkley’s quote when David Stern fined him for whining about some post-season officiating when he was with the Phoenix Suns. Barkley said “Well I guess i’m just another 90′s ni&&@r.”
You can find the entire gammit of Barkley’s quoted lunacy throughout this link: http://www.clintcam.com/barkley/

Since when is someone who makes millions of dollars a role model? To whom? The stupid people? “I’m not a role model” is the only thing that round mound of expound has ever said that was actually true.
PRO ATHLETES ARE ALWAYS ROLE MODELS. THEY CAN’T PLAY IT BOTH WAYS–HAVING BIG MULTI-MILLION $$$ ENDORSEMENT DEALS TO SELL THINGS TO KIDS WHOM THEY KNOW THEY INFLUENCE; THEN SAYING, “DON’T LET ME INFLUENCE YOU–I’M NOT A ROLE MODEL.” IT’S THE EPITOME OF HYPOCRISY.

I read somewhere that Cynthia Mckinney was the smartest democrat of all,…Well now she finally has some competition.

There few celebrities in public life who really are conservative. We don’t need those who are loudmouths, racist or lacking in the character department listed as conservatives/Republicans. There’s a line the GOP shouldn’t cross. Fame is so overrated. As for the “heart and soul” of America exemplified by Ted Nugent and Charles Buckley, let the Democrats have them.
We can keep our values and that’s more important than whether someone famous is in the picture – it matters a lot more in the long run, too.

Every celebrity is a role model. Why has so much ink been spilled on Mel Gibson? Because he’s somebody, that’s who. If he was a nobody gutter level anti-Semite no one would give him the time of day. As a celebrity, what he says and does sets an example for others. And these people shouldn’t be allowed to have it both ways – they make their millions and off their high living they persuade impressionable people to imitate them and when they’re caught with their pants down, they wriggle out of responsibility for their transgressions.
Nah ah. They come down twice as hard. If someone famous doesn’t want all the attention, positive and negative, they shouldn’t be a celebrity in the first place. They’re always role models whether they want it or not cause people look up to them and that’s true whether they’re actors, singers or pro athletes.
Now if only they would behave like the “heart and soul” of America, they would gain more admiration and fewer jeers from the public. As Debbie said, its the hypocrisy that puts people off.

when it comes to hollywood, conservatives like jews have a desperate need to be liked…hence the usual lists of ‘conservative celebrities’ and the embrace of completely dubious people who refuse to even identity themselves as conservatives or address republican events as ‘conservatives’

While I’ve always loved Ted Nugent’s music and stance on some issues such as drugs, he has many problems. Chronic infidelity can never be on the resume of someone who preaches values. Unfortunately, there seems to be no contrition on his part. Nugent is a great spokesman for the second amendment and his anti-drug stance, just not family values. I knew in my teenage years back in the late 70′s that “Uncle Ted” was a great act and little more.

Before anyone in Alabama votes for fatboy,consider the facts:The late,great heavyweight champ Joe Louis-born in Alabama and raised in Detroit-voted Republican and opposed Roosevelt for not endorsing an anti-lynching bill.

All professional athletes are not role models. They are, for the most part, dumb jocks. Only stupid people think they are to be revered. The same goes for actors – a LARGE percentage of them are high school dropouts.
And they certainly can play it boths ways. Michael Jordan is a well known degenerate gambler, forced to resign from the NBA, and he still peddles crap to the stupid people. PT Barnum was right.
