Memo to thuggish left wing “comedians”: Assassination “jokes” aren’t funny

Posted by: ST on June 7, 2011 at 12:28 pm

Looks like yet another left winger didn’t get the “New Tone” memo. Via Daily Caller’s Jeff Poor:

Sometimes there is a line that is crossed between what appropriate for comedy and what’s likely off limits. But did comic Christopher Titus cross that line?

In an appearance on Monday’s “The Adam Carolla Show” podcast, Titus may have waded into that territory. In responding to a question about former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” in which Palin defended her interpretation of what happened during Paul Revere’s pre-Revolutionary War famous ride, Titus launched into a description of what he would do if Palin were elected.

“You know what man?” Titus said. “I am going to literally — if she gets elected president, I am going to hang out on the grassy knoll all the time, just loaded and ready — because you know what? It’s for my country. It’s for my country. If I got to sacrifice myself, it’s for my country.”

Do us all a favor, Titus.  Quit your day job.  Please.  l-)

    Good thing liberals don’t use violent euphemisms to incite the people listening to them. It’s only conservatives that do that!

    So if anything (God forbid) should happen to Palin can we nail this guy for “causing” it? If threatening the president is illegal can we arrest him for threatening a hypothetical president? *sigh* Just another example of how liberals consider whatever they do as ok, and only people who disagree with them are crossing the line.

  2. Liberals are amoral. This guy should be questioned by the FBI or whoever has jurisdiction.

  3. SpideyTerry says:

    Given comments like that, if he really wants to help his country, he should just turn the gun on himself.

  4. Phineas says:

    I suppose this means, should she be elected, we can expect the return of Bush-era “assassination porn.” 8-|

  5. Coastal Eddie says:

    If he is on any grassy knoll with a weapon,that should be ok with the following admonitions.
    1. Use a large caliber [.357 on up]. 2. Place the barrel in your mouth before pulling the trigger.
    3. Fire when ready, Gridley. 4. Try not to miss. 5. Bring some money to pay for clean up.

  6. tommy mc donnell says:

    its part of that liberal political civility that obama talked about in his speech in arizona. judging by the actions of liberals since that speech i think republicans were the only ones that listened to it.

  7. Carlos says:

    If the idiot really wanted to do something for the country, he would get a real education, not a government indoctrination. He would concentrate on the following:

    The Constitution. History. The Constitution. Civics and Civil Discourse. The Constitution. Debate. The Constitution. Ethics. The Constitution.

    Or, he might want to do the entire country a favor and leave?

  8. John Scotus says:

    It is frightening that anyone would even imagine for a moment that this would be funny. What kind of country has America become, when such a thing is thought an acceptable thing to say?

  9. Average joe says:

    Isn’t Carolla supposed to be conservative, or at least libertarian leaning? Did he bitch slap this punk or what?

  10. Average joe says:

    Just for my own edification and for youse’s information, I went to Carolla’s website and listened to the performance. Carolla, Titus and some others were at the Irvine Improv before a live audience. The crowd was clearly Palin-Haters, as the clowns had been mocking Sarah’s Paul Revere statement to the delight of the dim-wits in the cheap seats. Titus’ assasination remark was met with big laughs, a female ‘comic’ said something about the ‘grassy knoll is gonna be crowded” and Carolla said something about a “guy from Sprint Club is gonna shoot Titus in the parking lot…” Then they changed the subject. But no, Carolla didn’t object to the joke or defend Palin.

  11. Drew the Infidel says:

    Who the hell is Christopher Titus? And for the sake of historical accuracy, JFK was not shot from the grassy knoll but the Texas Schoolbook Depository Building.

  12. Kate says:

    Yes, who is this dimwit and why should anyone be exposed to him?

    Doing improv on shooting Obama would be met with righteous indignation and rioting…sort of like those cartoons of Allah.

    I recommend a short visit from the FBI….once Palin announces all the moonbat liberal heads will be exploding all over TV and the internet.

  13. Jim McDonald says:

    Somebody gave Adam Carolla a show? Does he come on after Olbermann?

  14. Lorica says:

    Drew, According to Congressional investigation on the JFK assasination. There was more than 1 shooter, and the three most likely places for those shooters were The Texas School book depository, the fence line between the grassy knoll and the rail yard, and the on coming overpass as a place of last resort.

    As far as this moron, just another idiot who suffers from Bush Derangement Syndrome, and has now switched the object of his hatred to Palin. This is just another Jared Loughner waiting to happen, who also hated Bush and most likely Palin.

    Yeah the left sure do have some compassionate people. LOL :) Whatever!! – Lorica

    I’m glad Conservatives can just shake their head and think what a nut this guy is. Liberals on the other hand probably get erections from talk like this.Pity!
