Andy Rooney Is My Hero!


Recommended Posts

I remember watching this on air, but obviously couldn't recall it all to comment on it here, but then I just got this email from my aunt, so here's what he said a couple of weeks ago on 60 Minutes...yes, CBS let this air in its entirety:

(sorry for the formatting, blame the email forward she forwarded)



>I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except

>I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a phobia,

it is

>I have the right "NOT" to be tolerant of others because they are


>weird, or tick me off.

>I don't think just because you were not born in this country, you are

>And if you don't like my point of view, tough...





I don't think there's a word he said I don't agree with. Finally someone had the guts to say it all to a national audience. F' the FCC! Go Rooney!

Sorry, I'm breaking my "no-OCC-after-work" pact because I just wanted to say I'm glad there are others here that agree :).



and also because I wanted to bump this up so everyone can read what's really up in this country.

Since homosexuality isn't an individual's choice, thinking it's wrong is like thinking blue eyes are wrong. Lots of good points in there though a little generalized. I especially agree with the guns-don't-kill-people (although that's been said a thousand times) and the African-American points. I will now expect to be referred to as European-American and will be greatly offended if referred to as white. :lol:
