His day will come and when it does, I will have no sympathy for him.

@panchang810:

I see it differently. To me, even the most repugnant speech needs to be defended. I have no issues with the KKK, neo-Nazis, Aryan Nation or any hate group speaking their minds (And I’m a black man…). I say this because if they are stifled, where would it stop? And who would be determining what’s “appropriate”? Those same people may someday say that I have no right to speak out against oil paintings of Elvis on velvet (which I find vulgar, BTW).

I would much rather that speech like Mr. Gottfried’s disgusting jokes, no matter how objectionable, be out in the open. That way, it can be refuted and those idiots like him be exposed for the losers they are.

I do appreciate and respect your passion and fighting the good fight, though, my friend.

So let me get this right. No person should say anything that "imparts negative and bad vibes"? You mean something like these words all in CAPS?

"SHOULDN'T BE ABUSED AND BE USED TO INSTIGATE HATRED AND ANIMOSITY AND SHOULD NEVER BE USED TO MALIGN PEOPLE AND OTHER CULTURE AND ETHNIC BACKGROUND AND MUST NEVER BE USED JUST TO INVOKE JOKE AT THE EXPENSE OF OTHER PEOPLE OR NATIONS WHO ARE IN GRAVE THREATS OR SUFFERINGS!"

So we should ALL censor everything we say unless it is nice and sweet and used only for good. Well, there goes our FREEDOM. And 90% of what's posted in this comment section. You can't have freedom of speech if you believe in being censored. You can't have it both ways. Pick one or the other. Freedom or Censorship. Which will you choose. Good or bad I choose to be free. The Communists chose censorship. Where are they now? Even the Communists realized freedom is better than censorship.

Seriously Gilbert... You really should stick to doing voice overs for Disney parrots and leave the joke-telling to somebody with half a brain.

A great post. Just read the posts from most here, laughing and wishing ill, because it's "free speech" and just do the opposite. Your life will have much more meaning by reaching out a hand, not by slapping a needy one away.

Gilbert is funny as hell (even though these jokes fell flat). If you don't believe me watch the Comedy Central Roast of Joan Rivers. Your face will hurt from laughing so hard.

They are completely overwhelmed right now and it shows a major lack of maturity, compassion and basic sensitivity to even print this story.
