->''"I have the right to criticize other people's things and beliefs because I have a right to criticize other people's things and beliefs. Just as other people, including the hypocritical moron who calls herself "LadyLilyMalfoy", have the right to criticize my things and beliefs. That's the great thing about Freedom of Expression: it cuts both ways. As I say elsewhere in this screed, your right to hold a silly-ass opinion in no way prevents the opinion from being silly. Nor does it protect you from having someone else come up and point out how silly-assed your opinion is. So... to everyone who thinks... or rather doesn't think... just like this LLM person, kiss my wide white ass.

Good for him. What the hell is the point of hounding the actor especially when he is bringing the material to life with such zeal?

->''"I’m starting to develop a Grand Unified Douchebag Theory that begins and ends with Libertarians ruin everything. And I say this not just because Libertarians are a horribly selfish repackaging of the Segregationist movement that worships a greedy sociopath and serves as a convenient excuse for bigoted straight white cismen to be the complete assholes they want, but also because I have never seen a Libertarian pop up in anything and have it be a good thing in the long run.\\\
And in fact, every group that has tenuously accepted the Libertarians in their midst have eventually ended up with an explosion of hostile sexism and racism that created “great schisms” in the community (see video games, comic books, [[HollywoodAtheist atheism]]) between douchebro assholes and everyone else."''

Why, you'd play for free! I don't harbor any favoritism toward Colin Kaepernick. I interviewed him once and he seemed all right, but he's not on my favorite team, so I don't give a shit if he succeeds. All I know is that in the NFL, you either have a QB, or you have nothing.

->''"''[[Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro Nitro]]'' on July 5 broadcast once again from the Georgia Dome, home to some of its biggest past successes...[[Wrestling/BretHart Bret]]'s interview began with him saying that WCW had told him to go ahead and talk for as long as he wanted. He basically said that his family had lived for wrestling their whole lives, and now, tragically, [[Wrestling/OwenHart they'd also died for it]]. He said he wasn't sure if he'd ever wrestle again (this was met with a violently negative reaction), and also that if he never got a chance to say it to his fans again, thank you. Getting into the ring was obviously a lot harder than he had thought it was going to be, and it was upsetting to him to hear the few hecklers who obviously didn't understand the gravity of what had happened to his family.\\\
"And that's about it," he concluded. "Thank you very much.""''

->'''Jay:''' Oh, man, it ''really'' annoyed me initially: The fans chant toward the Crusaders "YOU FUCK {{Wrestling/LITA}}" and "YOU'VE GOT HERPES". I was like, "'''Shut the FUCK up''' and ''watch'' this match!"\\
'''V1''': [[Wrestling/JohnBradshawLayfield JBL]] said the exact same thing. He said, 'look at all these fans paying to ''not'' watch wrestling, and chant.' He does not care for these fans at all.\\
'''OOC:''' I have no issue with the chanting, the fans are havin' fun; but this, for me, it might've stepped over the line. Essentially, they were startin' a fuckin' Mexican Wave.
