It's ironic that so many of these 80s-era game show hosts are vocal right-wingers when you consider that they basically made their careers out of giving free sh*t to poor people.
 
2013-04-19 08:54:40 PM  
So I'm reading his Tweets and thinking, hmm...OK...that one's not unreasonable...or that one...heard that before...so where's the punchline that got it on Fark?... OH SWEET MERCIFUL CRAP!

Here's to you, game show guy. Wrap up that career with a bang!

I am more interested in Brett Somers take on this.

So when he starts losing money and job offers will it be overzealous staffer or Twitter account hacked?
 
2013-04-19 08:57:50 PM  
Chuck Woolery... Really?
 
2013-04-19 09:01:32 PM  
Melt down?
 
2013-04-19 09:04:17 PM  
Not much of a meltdown.  Actually, his opinions aren't that extreme.  I'm not outraged.
 
2013-04-19 09:05:35 PM  
That was a pretty sedate meltdown.

Anyone know where their mother is or if she is alive? No mention of her or where she is. Maybe I'm missing something.

Salon.com has some pretty low farkin' standards on what is considered a melt-down.
 
2013-04-19 09:32:08 PM  
Islam does have genuine issues when it comes to violence.  His opinions are blunt but they aren't without a historical basis.
 
2013-04-19 09:32:34 PM  
If that's what you call a meltdown I would say you've lead a pretty mild life.

"One thing for sure. Muslims can't seem to live in peace with anyone. Even each other. FACT."  Might not bepolitically correct but there's a lot of truth to that.

I only read a few, but not seeing any meltdown.
 
2013-04-19 09:39:52 PM  
That's not a melt down. Its just everyday douchebaggery. At best

Well, in Salon's defense, I figure that has to be about as meltdowny as Chuck "I'm an aggressive shade of beige" Wollery can get.

I feel so blessed to know Chuck Woolery's opinion on this issue.  In other news, making sweeping, negative generalizations about other cultures or races tends to upset people.
 
2013-04-19 09:43:46 PM  
For the record, is it wrong to be amused that both the far left and far right got what they wanted?

The far right got muslims terrorists
The far left got pretty much white guy looking terrorists.

Salon wants its readers to know what they should think in the future in case some sense of reality begins to slip in.

Chuck Woolery?
Seriously?

So a few insensitive tweets = meltdown?

But more importantly, what do Pat Sajak and Jim Lange have to say about this very important issue? I care deeply what mild mannered past-their-prime game show hosts have to say about the marathon bombing suspects and will consider any off-color remarks an epic meltdown.

All religious and ideological communities have genuine issues when it comes to violence. Chuck Woolery knows nothing about the historical basis of anything remotely Muslim. He couldn't tell tafsir from qibla from the ramy al-jamarat if his life depended on it, and neither could 99.9% of Farkers. Please refute that.
 
2013-04-19 10:05:17 PM  
So good to hear from Chuck.  Nice to know he's still with us.

LoL, right. Because when someone says "white person" the first thing that comes to mind is is "immigrant radicalized Chechnyan Muslim". But, hey, as long as you explain what you mean by "white person" in the future the next time a big bomb goes off you'll be making some progress.

That's because "Whiteness" is an inherently unstable category deployed to racialize people. Using it tells you lots about the person using it and nothing about the ostensible target of the conversation. TMYK.

Ah here we go, the false equivalence brigade has arrived.

"Islam is no worse than any other religion! In fact it's The Religion of Peace™"

Just be a good dhimmi and disregard everything that recent history has shown you.

Well here's the thing, conflating Mulsim with terrorist is wrong.

However, if you hear about a terrorist bombing, the  presumption if you have to make a guess, is that the terrorist was Islamic.
Just as if you hear "Abortion Doctor shot" or "Abortion Clinic Bombed" you presume "It must have been a pro-life christian activist"
And "serial killer" you presume it's a middle aged above average intelligence white guy.

All muslims are not terrorists. Most, if not all terrorists are muslims. Please dispute that.

Like I tell my students, if you don't have the basic terminology down first, you'll never be able to explain the historical and cultural relationships between the concepts, where most of the actual learning is.  :-) And I'll be very surprised if Chuck Woolery has any of that. We'll be back in two and two.
