    Wiggy going "all in" for political correctness isn't the result of any sort of soul searching or critical reasoning process. It's simply a cynical ploy to help him land mainstream Hollywood Gong Show type gigs and get more invites to Jennifer Aniston celebutard aromatherapy retreats. We know this because he doesn't even entertain the arguments of those who oppose him. He can't afford to because he knows his position is indefensible. He just immediately hangs up on his critics and then offers up another helping of bullshit while unopposed.

    Wait, are you telling me the same man who begs his audience and friends for $7M to build a cat shelter while at the same spending $10M on a closet is a fake liberal and a hypocrite?

    I'm sure this has been posted here before but I still read the whole thing again as it is both interesting and funny.

    Everything about Stern is hypocritical, he was crying about the Republican stance on the environment last week ignoring that he has 50,00 square feet of real estate for two people, travels by limo, helicopter and private jet and creates mountains of waste with the multiple remodels to suit his whore wife's insatiable greed.

    Fascinating read. I have a friend who's a PD in Chicago with similar views. A little bit for him is burnout and cynicism, but it's real.
    It doesn't man all blacks are like that. It's not attacking any more than an article revealing the waste and indulgence of Hamptonites.
    I wish we could have more honest discussion in thus country. If I printed that article and work and left it out, I'd probably be fired! Like it's porn or something.
    What a sad state of affairs.

    You can definitely see him back-tracking on the rah-rah anti-Muslim, proxy wars for Israel bandwagon.

    He used to be one of the very worst stereotypes of a Jew: Not just racist over Jewish identity, but leveraging that biology into some warped theology where everyone who isn't a Jew is necessarily lesser, an animal. A threat to Israel was like a threat to kill God and in his paranoid mind, they are there in abundance.

    Before Stern found enlightment on the issue, he was a "Glass parking lot! Nuke the dirty Arabs! Death to the ragheads! Three cheers for war in Afghanistan and Iraq!" buffoon.

    And now? The violent zIonism and war cheerleading? It is all scrubbed from replays and never mentioned. The bloodthirsty screeds are "around." Mostly, in my mind, these racist impulses are blown off on his dated and diseased ranting about "gooks" because he doesn't have the balls to be contemporary about it.
