Clint Eastwood Slams Political Correctness

Friday, February 27, 2009 11:37 PM

Actor Clint Eastwood sees nothing funny about political correctness.

The "Dirty Harry" actor told Germany's Der Spiegel that modern society lives in a state of fear over the possibility of being labeled racist for telling jokes based on ethnicity or nationality.

"People have lost their sense of humor," he told the magazine. "In former times we constantly made jokes about different races. You can only tell them today with one hand over your mouth otherwise you will be insulted as a racist.

"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 normal that we made jokes based on our nationality or ethnicity. That was never a problem.

"I don't want to be politically correct. We're all spending too much time and energy trying to be politically correct about everything."

Clint rules

Political correctness has even created a more hateful environment.

Some of us

still live like that. On my first tour in Iraq, I got moved to a different platoon and my driver was a 6'4" black former gang member from NYC. I was told he was a discipline propblem, so the very first thing I told him was that I would treat him like a man unless he acted like a kid, in which case I would treat him as such. It was all he was looking for the whole time. We got to where I referred to him as my chocolate covered jungle bunny or my porch monkey, and he referred to me as his little cracker. I'm not sure I'm going to fit in when I retire from the army and have to deal with the private sector.

Friends and confidants can act like that once a bond or mutual respect has been attained. PC is just another way to seperate the races. The Socialists want us divided, because divided we fail!

A middle school teacher in my county lost his job because the local school board has a ZERO tolerance for racial slurs... two young lads were being disruptive in his class arguing among themselves and after repeated attempts on the teacher's part to correct their behavior, he finally lost his temper, and loudly told the two guys to "quit acting like a bunch of niggers and behave [themselves]". THe teacher, who was also black, said that he was addressing their behavior, not them as individuals, but the (mostly white) school board decided to uphold their decision to terminate him... Hell, I'd have given him a raise for having the balls to stand up to the students.

Good for Clint

I am tired of all the PC bull shit. Where I work we are constantly having to do what they call tolerance traing. Our faciluty has one mexican the rest are white, but we are part of a corparation that most the facilities are in California. Everytime there is a new hot topic in Cali we get hit by more training.

the old (better) ways, and I thank him for it. I recently read that he was in a coffee shop in NY, when some prissy boy was giving a young girl a hard time about messing up his order. The bitch boy was demoralizing her, when Clint stepped in and offered to take him outside so they could dicuss things if he did'nt apoligize to the girl. If only all of Hollywood had these morales.
