Alec Baldwin

FIRED FROM MSNBC

Alec Baldwin didn't get a Cadillac Eldorado ... he didn't get a set of steak knives ... but he DID just get his ass FIRED from MSNBC.

After the actor went on ANOTHER homophobic tirade earlier this month, the news network has finally decided to cut bait on Baldwin, who hosted the poorly-rated weekly show, "Up Late with Alec Baldwin."

Sources close to the firing say the decision to axe Alec was based, in part, on his recent homophobic outbursts ... when he called a photog a "c**ksucking f*g."

Alec immediately went into damage control mode after the incident -- but it was pathetic -- with the actor trotting out a male hairdresser to vouch for his love of gay people. He also spoke at a conference and professed his platonic love of several fellas.

A rep for MSNBC called the firing "a mutual parting" ... adding, "We wish Alec all the best."

Oh, and if you don't get the opening line of this story -- just watch the clip from "Glengarry Glen Ross." It's actually his finest work.

Good.... this slug is a total slob. They need to pull the plug on that entire network called MSLSD,. What kind of brain dead people watch this trashy network? They have zero ratings every week.

I am not sure I understand what he did wrong.

Was the photographer gay? If so then then he is in fact a "**** sucker", as they (the gay people - as well as many women) suck on the "****" of their partner in order to physically stimulate him. As an "enlightened" individual, I understand and accept this behavior as I have been lead to believe that it is both beneficial and strengthening for a society to allow such behavior among same-sexed people.

If the photographer wasn't gay, then Mr. Baldwin was just mis-informed, and the straight photographer was in fact not a "**** sucker". No harm no foul.

If one is called a "****sucker" but one is not gay, then one certainly shouldn't be offended. Certainly if I were to call a staunch anti-war activist a "baby killer", he would screw up his face in confusion and wonder what I was talking about; but not be offended.

So... Mr. Baldwin got two photographers confused. One, a ****-sucker and the other a *****-****er. He simply got confused. What's the big deal? Since he is doing so much for the movement, I'd think the ****-suckers would give him a pass.

Alec Baldwin, an ultra Liberal, fired from ultra Liberal MSNBC? Huh?

So, Alec, how's that Liberal Political Correctness working out for you?

Liberals have been stifling "Free Speech" for years. You probably didn't notice previously because you were blinded by Liberal propaganda.
