“Retarded”

“Retarded”

It’s true. In my hundreds of older videos, I’ve uttered the word retarded a few times. I apologized for this but it’s now clear that I shouldn’t have. The Washington Post maliciously spun the apology as if I’d been talking “about” people with special needs.

“Gay”

Likewise, in the same comedy video, I referred to the cliche use of clones in youtube videos as “gay”. I never sought to insult or offend anyone. For years I’ve proudly displayed an anonymous youtube comment declaring me “the gayest thing I have ever seen” at the top of my homepage. Everybody should be able to marry who they want to marry. Any conservative politician who doesn’t get that is just being gay.

“Sexist”

I’m being called “sexist” for saying “I support a woman’s right to choose what to do with her own body” followed by “but I’m not ‘pro’ abortion — I’m amateur with abortion at best.”

“Misogynist”

Conspiracy theorist Louise Mensch has taken the bait, calling me a “misogynist” for putting “Hillary Clinton’s face onto an S&M model”, neglecting the fact I didn’t single out Hillary Clinton for being a woman. I also put Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush in the same style clothing. Warning: the autotune actually is offensive.

“Hillary = Trump”

The same twitter troll that revived my dumb old videos to get me off the Sanders campaign also lied that I made a video that “proclaims Hillary Clinton & Trump to be no different in 2016”. Even though, the video begins with Sure there are differences between Trump and Hillary” and ends with “Like I said in the beginning, sure there are differences, and if you’re in a swing state, you should probably go ahead and vote based on those differences.
