The Tolerant Left in Action

by Michael Walsh

Via my friend and former colleague, John Nolte, the peerless editor of Big Hollywood, comes this pungent collection of tolerance. Some samples:

 From The Street we learn comedian Gilbert Gottfried has been fired by Aflac for his “jokes”:

Gilbert Gottfried was fired by Aflac on Monday after the comedian made a number of distasteful jokes about the devastation in Japan.

“Japan is really advanced,” Gottfried tweeted on Monday afternoon, “They don’t go to the beach. The beach comes to them.” 

Aflac quickly cut ties with the comedian following a string of similar comments. 

Hollywood Reporter has more:

Aflac, which does 75 percent of its business in Japan, also plans to donate $100 million to disaster relief.

Gottfried has yet to apologize for the jokes, which included: “I just split up with my girlfriend, but like the Japanese say, ‘They’ll be another one floating by any minute now.’”
