Clint Eastwood: Bastion Of Common Sense

By Wyatt Earp | February 27, 2009


I knew there was a reason he was one of my favorite personalities.

London: Acting legend Clint Eastwood , 79, apparently believes that political correctness has rendered modern society humourless, for he accuses younger generations of spending too much time trying to avoid being offensive.

Thank you, Mr. Eastwood! I’ve been saying this for ten years now.

The Dirty Harry star insists that he should be able to tell harmless jokes about nationality without fearing that people may brand him “a racist”.

“People have lost their sense of humour. In former times we constantly made jokes about different races. You can only tell them today with one hand over your mouth or you will be insulted as a racist,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

“I find that ridiculous. In those earlier days every friendly clique had a ‘Sam the Jew’ or ‘Jose the Mexican’ – but we didn’t think anything of it or have a racist thought. It was just normal that we made jokes based on our nationality or ethnicity. That was never a problem. I don’t want to be politically correct.

In our clique, we have Vinnie Antonelli the Drunk. Heh, sorry Vin.

We’re all spending too much time and energy trying to be politically correct about everything,” he added. (H/T – )

Amen, sir. This nonsense started when I was in college, and from the onset I was looked down upon by my more liberal friends. Always the jokester, I was immediately transformed into a racist, sexist bigot. Luckily for me, I wholeheartedly ignore other people’s idiotic labels. I still get hate mail – as you have seen this week – and I chalk it up to morons who don’t have a sense of humor.

If this blog offends someone, I see that as their problem, not mine. I make no apologies for my humor and sarcasm.

    Several years ago we had a staff meeting devolve into a bitch-fest about who was offended by what. It got so ridiculous I finally stood up and said,

    “Well, I’m offended that noone is sexually harrassing me and I want to know what management plans to do about it?”

    That pretty much ended the meeting.

    Being a fat, bald redneck with a heavy Southern accent, if I didn’t have a sense of humor, I’d probably be dead or in jail. Can’t understand people who take everything so damn seriously.

    While Clint may be right on this issue, it doesn’t make up for his severe case of liberalism for which there is no cure. Although I liked many of his movies, Gran Torino not withstanding (too preachy, too predictable), his politics really detract from his accomplishments.

    We have arrived at point in our culture where only white “redneck” men may be maligned or otherwise made fun of.

    Oh yeah, blonds are fair game. But only white blonds.

    Yet, the wrappers can toss around racial epithets and demean women and we are told that we are too uptight…

    Liberalism is a cancer and unfortunately the aggressiveness has taken its toll. It’s only a matter of time before people are arrested for cracking wise about protected minorities who do everything in their power to highlight their “race” and engage in segregation tactics yet they decry “racism” and segregation.

    Oh my, I think my head may explode. Quick, someone please find me something to spit redman into.

    Those of us who are retired from the Armed Forces and end up in places with all races and heavy union rules are subject to the PC madness, also. Those who wear the President Obama T-shirts are untouchables. But if one of us says anything about the one or his cabinet and slobbering minions in the congress, all hell breaks loose. Because most of them cannot debate the actual issues. due to the hope and change thing and he will take care of us mentality.
    And I gave people like this the best 20 years of my life. Makes it kind of cheap nowadays.

    One day an Englishman, a Scotsman, and an Irishman walked into a pub together. They each bought a pint of Guinness. Just as they were about to enjoy their creamy beverage, three flies landed in each of their pints, and were stuck in the thick head. The Englishman pushed his beer away in disgust. The Scotsman fished the fly out of his beer, and continued drinking it, as if nothing had happened. The Irishman, too, picked the fly out of his drink, held it out over the beer, and started yelling, “SPIT IT OUT, SPIT IT OUT YOU BASTARD!!!!”


    McQuillan walked into a bar and ordered martini after martini, each time removing the olives and placing them in a jar. When the jar was filled with olives and all the drinks consumed, the Irishman started to leave.

    “S’cuse me,” said a customer, who was puzzled over what McQuillan had done. “What was that all about?”

    “Nothing,” said the Irishman, “my wife just sent me out for a jar of olives.”

    “If this blog offends someone, I see that as their problem, not mine.”

    Surely they can find another blog out of the gazillions out there where they will be happy? If not, they could always turn off the computer and get a life …

    Quack Quack!

    My son’s school let the children come to school in costume on October 31st. I say October 31st, because we weren’t allowed to say “Halloween”, instead they called it “Harvest Festival”. Apparently, some religious groups are offended by Halloween.

    So, what’s next? Maybe we should ban Thanksgiving since vegans and animal lovers may be offended by the senseless slaughter of millions of innocent turkeys. God forbid we offend anyone…

    In Clint’s favor, Gran Torino!, his choice in women, his music shared, his personal life kept personal. I will forgive the golfing because I don’t do it nor understand it. But mostly I don’t live my life based on any celebrity’s and he doesn’t seem to either…

    Kaveman – Remind me to say that at our next appointment for “diversity training.”

    Diller – I’m less fat, but I have been told I have a heavy Philly accent.

    Mike – I didn’t see Gran Torino, but Unforgiven is one of my favorite films.

    Jason – “but only white blonds.” Thank God for that, because African-American women with blond hair look ridiculous. Paging Grace Jones!

    Glenn – The PPD is 1,000 times worse. If you only had any idea . . .

    Admiral – There’s a feather in your cap!

    RT – Well played!

    Alan B – They may be happy, but no blog is better than this one. (Oh, sorry, but I must be drinking again.)

    Mrs. Crankipants – That is ridiculous, but not really surprising. It’s one of the reasons why we moved our kids to Catholic school. Education without the liberal agenda.

    Earl – I golf. I’m not good at it, but I love trying to get better.

    There’s a webcomic called ‘Way Too Random’, done first-person by a college student. My all-time favorite of hers was a stereotypical College Womyns’ studies prof giving out class assignments, to wit:
    “For Tuesday, I want a ten-page paper detailing how the white male has not only caused all the world’s problems to this point in our shared history, but how they continue to under-represent the ‘others’ in their phallic society”.
    When the main character complains about the basic unfairness of this, the Prof threatens to report her to the Campus Tolerance League, finishing with
    “Now, are there any questions that do not support the Phallic Overlords?”
    Oh, the comic is still available at
