Adam Carolla: MSNBC's Thomas Roberts is a P*ssy

Well, obviously. But when the obvious is denied or overlooked, it's useful and necessary to say it.

For backstory, the other day Thomas Roberts gave a scripted Progressive Hero Speech on MSNBC, and if you can imagine such a thing, called for MSNBC to be even more hippy-dippy and hyper-ideological than it already is.

Don’t we need to do more about our social contract with each other in this country when it comes to being others? Because, as we look at this, we can use this as a great pivot point to talk about race relations in this country.

But, being an “other,” whether it’s LGBT, because you’re suspected of being a pedophile and a rabid disease carrier.

And if you are a woman, well you don’t have a right to your own body and your own reproductive health, because if you do you’re a slut that wants to sleep around and use abortion as birth control.

And then, if you’re Hispanic, you want to lay off the land and have anchor babies and you just want to lay off the land.

Isn’t that the — and I want to challenge this network: we had to have an “I am other” agenda and have a forum for it, because others need to unite to talk about this and figure out where we are going as a country.

The social contract that we have currently negotiated that is so wrong and how this is happening in a country where we have this huge group of people that– it’s supposed to be a melting pot, but we treat each other with such disdain it’s not even funny.

Well, Carolla's not having any part of this Clapper Moment from Roberts. If I know Carolla's basic take -- and I think I've do, I've heard it a few times -- it's this: There is racism. Racism is responsible for 15% of the Bad Outcomes black people experience in America.

On the other hand, a bad culture among underclass blacks is responsible for 85% of Bad Outcomes they experience.

So yeah, we can sit here jerking each other off in our Progressive Hero Speeches and relentlessly focus on the 15% it's Fun and Rewarding to talk about, and sure, you'll get your Standing Ovations from your fellow progressives for Daring to Say What Every Single One of Them "Dares" to Say.

Or we can talk about the things that cause 85% of the problems, which have nothing to do with whitey. But you won't get applause for that. In fact, some people might even take issue with you.

So that's why Carolla calls him a p*ssy -- because like any other coward, he wants to talk about the stuff that it's Easy and Rewarding to talk about, not the stuff that would actually have the most beneficial effect.

Sending the message that we’re broke — we have a broken moral compass and we have to have a dialogue about it to fix it is an insane and dangerous message to send, and you can listen to this pussy ass-wipe on MSNBC explaining to his co-host — it’s a weekend show. He’s filling in for the host. Hear him explain what kind of society we’ve crafted in 2013.”
