Jimmy Dore Sold Out (Tulsi video)


I know he has a lot of fans here, and I admit I watch the show, and he's right about a lot of things, but the Tulsi/israel shilling video today even turned his own fans against him. 99.9% of the comments are ripping into Tulsi and Jimmy. I wasn't expecting that; I expect people to blindly support people they admire, but I was wrong. Honesty can't be mortgaged, and some choose good over indifference.

I never trusted Tulsi, and those of you who read my political posts know I've never been a fan of hers (even lesser fan of Hillary), but a fan of Bernie Sanders (and Ralph Nader for that matter). Maybe Tulsi is is a plant (but not for Russia). She's pro-CFR, anti-BDS, called herself a hawk on Network TV, was extreme right-wing until a few weeks ago to jump on the Bernie Bandwagon (just like EVERY candidate running, and some like Amy will move a tad like Pete to show they are an alternative when they are not). Tulsi answers every question with "I'm a soldier".. Oh really? You feel for the bullshit lies for war - DISQUALIFIED!

And Jimmy Dore isn't that funny, and he repeats a lot of things said by Bill Hicks, George Carlin, and Mort Sahl, using today's issues (and sometimes verbatim). Mort Sahl is the only one who has "kept it real" for 93 years. That's a hero. Most people don't know about his life, but he has his integrity, and outlived all those fascist bastards.

Read the comments for yourself. Astounding.

gYawn. Bernie's a lazy white asshole who's fallen up his whole goddamned life, partially because he appeals to other slacker dudes. You're not lazy deadbeat assholes, you are victims of a conspiracy. Oh, and women fantasize about being raped and young girls are supposed to fuck at thirteen. Jimmy Dore's a raging sexist incel who got booted from google for defining women as cunts o


Tulsi's a----why in fuck do people think she's a Dem?

And who the hell is Mort Sahl, anyway? I don't think I've ever heard the name aside from the OP mentioning him in every single one of his threads.

Ever see a movie or TV show with an elderly B-list actress (or occasionally actor) character always name-dropping actors who were famous in the 1930s but who haven't been thought about by most people for 40 years? ("Fatty Arbuckle once told me that I was the greatest actress since Mable Normand!") That's what MortSahlFan's threads remind me of.

Come on, you liars. Sahl is easily on the same level of fame as Ernie Kovacs, Phil Silvers, and Dobie Gillis.

ETA: all of whom are far more famous than Jimmy Dore — unless we are talking about Jimmy “Diamond” Dore, who used to sing in bar at the Sands at the Chrysler Late Night Las Vegas Revue, until he sang his last note by running his Fisher Fleetwood into the desert and into a saguaro. That guy is a fucking legend.

You're a Berniac who defends Gabbard and pretends sexism (including Bernie's), Russian interference, Repub gerrymandering and voter suppression didn't happen so you can blame it all on Hillary.

Bernie acts like once you get your merit badge for fighting some ism he's done with you until he needs you. ("Bernie marched with MLK!") (Except sexism, which he thinks is directed at HIM.)

Feeling a weeeeeee bit defensive about Saint Bernie, are we?

I of course know who Mort Sahl is, but I have no idea who Jimmy Dore or Tulsi are. Should I?

LOL! You’re still butthurt that your pet Wall Street reptile couldn’t even outmanoeuvre a half-retarded, rapey game show host. Sit down, you self-hating white Wine Aunt.

OP: I'll take, "People I've never heard of and don't care enough to give a fuck", for $500.

p.s.: Heard of Tulsi. Still don't give a fuck.

I will join you in rejecting the random, mindless groupings of millions, but if you really aren't over 60 then you're some kind of freak. I've seen your threads. All of your cultural references are from the 60s and 70s. What terrible thing happened to you? Mort Sahl, for fucks sake.

I'm in my 30s... I love movies from the 1930-50s, too. Great talent doesn't have an expiration date.

Mort Sahl sounds like the guy you call when you don't want to pay retail, and you don't need a receipt.

I dimly remember Lucy dropping his name in a Peanuts comic strip from the '50s or '60s. Past that? Nope.

He still has a show, every week. Just because you haven't heard of it, means nothing.

Tons of stuff on YouTube, but you might want to try your hand at stand-up comedy after that comment.

Repeating lies doesn't make them true, white boy. I notice youince again made sexism----now including your explicit embrace of it---Russian interference, Repub gerrymandering and voter suppression disappear so you could attack women again. This is somehow supposed to counter my accusation of....exactly that.

Nice victim blaming, you Trumpie-lite.

I was going to mock the OP in the first response twelve hours ago but I restrained myself. Where's my medal?

you have cassettes? Such luxury. I'm up a creek because I can't find the right vacuum tubes for my receiver set. And no one sells "A" and "B" batteries anymore.
