Anyone vaguely familiar with George Carlin's work will know that he is not an activist for ANYTHING DLerner 23:37, 2 March 2008 (EST)

He strikes me as a run-of-the-mill anti-religious liberal. Does anyone doubt that?--Aschlafly 23:33, 2 March 2008 (EST)
Carlin isn't run-of-the-mill anything, he attacks left-wing political correctness as much as anything. His attitude is "the worlds coming to an end, I'm here for the show" DLerner 23:37, 2 March 2008 (EST)
If I had to guess, I'd say he was a libertarian, but I'm not too familiar with him. Some of the most licentious celebrities out there are. It's probably 50/50 between libertarian and liberal. DanH 23:39, 2 March 2008 (EST)
Good point. The key question to ask him would be whether he favors taxpayer-funded abortion. He might, in which case he would be more liberal than libertarian.--Aschlafly 23:53, 2 March 2008 (EST)
My goodness, have either of you ever listened to him? He can't be classified in any label, in fact he wrote in one of his books that people say they're libertarians 'cause they think it's hip, but, it's all the same drivel DLerner 23:57, 2 March 2008 (EST)

Carlin is pretty apolitical - or rather he hates all politics equally. He has nasty things to say about anti-abortion activists, but also has equally nasty things to say about strident feminists. Really nasty. His biggest hate-on is for religious busybodies and people who try to use faith as a means to limit the freedom of others....AliceBG 23:58, 2 March 2008 (EST)

He makes me laugh, and that can't be all bad. He also makes a good point about the "all-loving God" contrasted with the doctrine of eternal damnation. I don't think we should dismiss him as virulently anti-Christian. He pokes fun at contradictions, but I didn't hear that he is an activist. --Ed Poor Talk 13:12, 17 April 2008 (EDT)
Why shame on you Ed, enjoying such a potty-mouthed comic LOL. It's up to God to decide whether someone lives or dies, I thought Christians believed "judge not etc." ---user:DLerner--- 13:15, 17 April 2008 (EDT)

Anti-Authoritarian

Most Americans don't make a career out of criticizing authority. It's a bit like noting that someone's a priest; the fact that most Americans believe in God doesn't make it irrelevant. Would "anti-establishment" be better? --Benp 11:42, 2 July 2008 (EDT)
