Is Alec Baldwin a Dangerous Lunatic?

Posted on | August 24, 2011 | 21 Comments

Ace of Spades calls Alec Baldwin a “Polite Company Truther”just askin’ questions about 9/11 — but I think that’s far too mild considering the gravity of Baldwin’s vile insinuations against the U.S. military.

It’s said that Baldwin is eyeing a run for Mayor of New York, but he seems far more likely to end up in the psych ward at Bellevue than in Gracie Mansion.

Let us remember that Tucson massacre gunman Jared Loughner was also into 9/11 conspiracy theories and, given Baldwin’s notorious temper, it’s probably fair to say that these obvious symptoms of Baldwin’s incipient paranoia indicate that he could soon become a danger to himself and others. (John Wilkes Booth was a professional actor, you know.)

Something else: When you scratch a 9/11 Truther, nine times out of 10, an anti-Semite bleeds. Conspiracy theories about 9/11 are almost always advanced by people who talk a lot about “neocons” (nudge, nudge) and “Zionists” (wink, wink), and if it turned out that Alec Baldwin is a secret Jew-hater, I certainly would not be surprised.

So while I have no specific reason to believe that Alec Baldwin is furtively stockpiling weapons or plotting to assassinate anyone, nor do I credit those ugly rumors that he is a crypto-Nazi whose bedroom closet conceals his personal shrine to Martin Bormann . . .

Well, I’m just askin’ questions . . .

    He’s just another looney liberal that no one should take seriously.  And if they do take him seriously, they are no doubt another looney liberal.

    This idiot is everywhere I can’t understand it.  He is even on my favourite TV station TCM. He’s a fat over rated douche-bag.  I saw him once host “Live from the Met” interviewing Juan Diego Florez one of the greatest tenors in the world – WHY???

    Who’s dick is this guy sucking???

    I do not like that bloated jackass, but I try not to hate people, however, I really fucking hate 9/11 trufers.

    Don’t forget, he’s also rabid anti-nuclear power.  Has been supporting the Tooth Fairy project for years now.

    “John Wilkes Booth was a professional actor, you know.”

    Yes, but in those days shooting Republican presidents was still frowned upon.  Now, it falls under the general heading of “Civility, progressive.”

    He’s almost as bad as Barack Obama.  I’m half expecting to see his face in the water cooler in the dugout of the Mets-Cubs game.

    Why does anyone pay any attention to that porcine faced, fat bastard? He has less relevance than the cockroach I just squished under my shoe at work today.

    Baldwin must have tourrette’s. Every few weeks or months, he spouts off like he’s smarter than a fifth grader, and fouler of mouth than a prostitute.

    But don’t worry. He played something sophisticated and intelligent in a movie once.

    The short answer to Stacy’s question: yes.

    The Long answer requires several costumes changes, an inquisition of Baldwin on why he turned down playing Jack Ryan a second time (epic fail), detailed list of  exactly how pointy Kim Basinger really is and an obligatory trip to Wegman’s Groceries.

    Alec Baldwin has wonderful comic timing, is very handsome, and has one of the most wonderful male voices in the world. What I don’t get is why that means we should listen to his idiotic political opinions.

    Alec Baldwin is an asshole, in the complete and total sense that Team America: World Police ascribed.
