I used to love reading who was the Asshole of the month, because then you knew whoever it was, TIME or NEWSWEAK would be featuring a whitewashed article on them in a month or so.

Larry would say, look at this asshole. 
They are an asshole because A, B, and C.
And he was right.

Then the asshole would be in the news for being a big shot.
And then get brought down,
eventually.
after they had plenty of time to hide assets.

Because that is rich, white justice.

Jerry Falwell Jr. got a 10 million dollar severance package.   What a loser.

He says he loves women but he just let Courtney Love drown. Doesn't have a leg to stand on.

To be fair, the bar is set pretty low on getting the last laugh on Falwell.  He's not exactly on Menza's membership waiting list.

You have to be to last in publishing this long. Other writers don't respect an editor who hasn't been in the trenches.

No, not the publication by far.

Maybe Flynt, though. I believe he understands and possibly practices the tenets of Christ, but those aren't the things that too many Christians hypocritically moralize upon and try to enforce on others.

I was referring to TFA. In it he demonstrates a grasp of Christianity which is much better than that of most American christians, in my experience. Of course, it's all myths and BS anyway, I'm just happy when someone at least tries to use those myths to argue for good, rather than usual in which they're used to argue for whatever evil the "believer" wants to rationalize.

As for Hustler's articles, couldn't say what they're like. Last time I saw a Hustler mag IRL was probably about 30 years ago, and I wasn't reading the articles.

Actually he's a perfect candidate for Mensa. They have two types of members. Slightly above average intelligence people who are so impressed with themselves that they get together just to talk about how smart they are. And average intelligence people who have a lot of money and love to be told how smart they are.

I used to go to a lot of book signings which almost always included a presentation by the author. Larry Flynt is the only author I ever heard who seemed to be of below-average intelligence. I can't even think of anyone else who seemed "average." I doubt he wrote the article but it's just like his book, liberal boilerplate with his signature.

/I'm liberal and I gave Larry Flynt money for his book. All I'm saying is don't look to him for keen insight.

It doesn't matter if the (actual) Christian tenets are attributed to a mythical figure, they're actually not all that bad.  But the moral stuff many Christians get all up tight about is all Old Testament stuff - Hebrew bible, actually.  Ten Commandments along-side just exactly how you're supposed to prepare your burnt offerings and divvy up the conquered people as slaves.  And all that other vindictive and "my people" nationalism, do as I say not as I do stuff that is very un-Christ-like from the old bible is what too many Christians are practicing.

Larry Flynt: "If there were ever to be a Second Coming of Jesus Christ, I have no doubt that his first order of business would be picking up a whip and banishing forever all the hucksters and false prophets who have perverted his message."

I agree.

Larry Flint commented on that bit of egregiousness in TFA. The losers are the dumb kids whose parents' tuition money went to pay off a self-serving evangelist.

I remember a series of articles in Hustler attacking the military/industrial/private security complex during the post-9/11 War on Terror. They were long-form investigative articles. Somebody was getting paid to dig up dirt on the government for Mr. Flint's amusement.
