Larry The Racist Cable Guy?

Is Larry The Cable Guy a racist prick. Well, I've never found him funny, so I wasn't planning on seeing his new feature length fart joke anyway, but a tirade on David Cross' website has me wanting to spread the word. I'll let Larry speak for himself. Here are quotes Cross uses in making his argument that Larry is something much worse than just an amazingly unfunny comedian. And note, the insertions, in parenthesis are Cross' not mine.

Re: Abu Ghraib Torture -

"Let me ask some of these commie rag head carpet flying wicker basket on the head balancing scumbags something!"

Re: Having a Muslim cleric give the opening prayer at the Republican Convention -

"What the hell is this the cartoon network? The Republicans had a muslim give the opening prayer at there (sic) convention! What the hell's going on around here! Is Muslim now the official religion of the United States!... First these peckerheads ( Ironically, "peckerhead" was a derogatory word slaves and their offspring used to describe white people) fly planes into towers and now theys (sic) prayin' before conventions! People say not all of em did that and I say who gives a rats fat ass! That's a fricken slap in the face to New York city by having some muslim sum-bitch give the invocation at the republican convention! This country pretty much bans the Christian religion (the religion of George Washington and John Wayne) virtually from anything public and then they got us watchin' this muslim BS!! Ya wanna pray to allah then drag yer flea infested ass over to where they pray to allah at!"

Cross then posts his favorite quote:

"...now look, I love all people (except terrorist countries that want to kill us)..."


The group I think Larry's the's most racist against are the white southerners that love him. He is to southern whites what black face was to Southern Blacks. Here's a guy who did not grow up in the south, playing a big southern dumb ass for all the wannabe country goofballs of the country to eat up.

I'm not a big David Cross fan either to be honest, but I'm glad he's bringing this stuff to light. You can read his open letter to LTCG here and witness him wasting lots of space being un PC and congratulating himself on being un PC. Compared to the Cable Guy though he's a freakin' genius.

Thanks to Heckasac for linking the Cross story.

he does sound racist, i seriously think that the people who can tolerate that kind of derogatory laungage are close minded and ignorant, the problem with having racist people in america today is, they teach their kids to be racist and there kids teach their kids to be racist and so on, jeez

he isnt racist hes awesome

Keith Lowell Jensen said...

Uh, yeah, compelling argument there anon. I mean, I don't know what to say. After reading your impassioned and well reasoned argument I'll have to retract my statements and admit that Larry is indeed "awesome" and despite calling people "rag head carpet flying wicker basket on the head balancing scumbags" he is clearly NOT a racist. Thank you for opening my eyes.

OK...DOES THE WORD COMMEDY MEAN ANYTHING TO YOU GUYS? HE SAYS IT ALL IN JEST. HE MAKES FUN OF HIMSELF AS WELL AS EVERYBODY ELSE. HOW MUCH OF LARRY THE CABLE GUY HAVE YOU SEEN/ LISTENED TO? HOW MUCH COMEDY HAVE YOU LISTENED TO FOR THAT MATTER? MAYBE BROADEN YOUR HORIZONS A LITTLE.
ULTIMATELY HE DOES RAISE SOME GOOD POINTS. YOU GOTTA LEARN TO LAUGH AT YOURSELF AND YOUR FUCK-UPS. OTHERWISE LIFE IS TOO FUCKING DEPRESSING.
HE'S NOT RACIST HE IS JUST COMMENTING ON THE WAY THINGS ARE AND SAYING THEM WITH HUMOR. AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT OK THEN DON'T LISTEN TO IT, BUT DON'T SMEAR PROPAGANDA AND SLANDER ALL OVER THE INTERNET JUST BECAUSE YOU DON'T "GET IT"! ALSO IT HAS BEEN NOTED THAT WHAT ONE HATES MOST ABOUT OTHERS HE HATES IT BECAUSE THAT PARTICULAR TRAIT IS FOUND IN HIMSELF. THINK ABOUT THAT THE NEXT TIME YOU MAKE A JOKE ABOUT SOMEONE...THE NEXT TIME YOU PUT SOMEONE DOWN IN HUMOUR. THINK TWICE BEFORE SPEAKING. AND BEFORE YOU CRITICIZE SOMEONE FOR RAGGING ON YOUR BELIFES REALIZE THAT YOU ARE DOING THE SAME THING TO HIM.
AND NOW TO QUOTE ONE OF MY FAVOURITE COMEDIANS...
GIT R DONE!!!!!!!

Keith Lowell Jensen said...

I've listened to and performed comedy all my life. (For real, I was a ventriliquist nut as far back as preschool.) What you can consider funny can betray racism. Black face comics were "just joking" yeah?

As my spreading propaganda "all over the internet", I think it's you who needs a sense of humor. I'm expressing my opinion honestly with no hidden agenda here on my little personal blog. You say "If you don't like, don't listen." I could say, if YOU don't like, DON'T read, but I won't. Do read, do express your opinions. I'm glad of it, and I'll do the same.

As for me "criticizing someone for ragging on my beliefs" I write with the assumption that I'm writing for other people who hold anti-racist beliefs. If I'm not showing courtesy towards racists, I'm okay with that.

One last thing, you're caps lock seems to be stuck. You might want to look into that.

Git R, oh I just can't do it. It aint me.

Anonymous said...

I agree with anonymous. Larry is a very talented comedian and many of his jokes have en element of truth behind them. As for being a racist? So what? I don't know one person who isn't racist! EVERYONE has their prejudices. EVERYONE.

Keith Lowell Jensen said...

Everyone's a racist?
What is your argument here?
Should we not be concerned about showing support for someone who is a member of the Klan because we maybe get a little nervous walking at night through a neighborhood where most of the people are a different race than we are?
That's just silly. And it's not like I'm saying I won't like him because off stage he doesn't do enough to prove he's not a racist. I'm saying I want nothing to do with the guy because he says straight out racist as hell shit right there on stage.

Anonymous said...

What a bunch of crap to post this and ask for comments. He's speaking of assholes in this world who want to kill any American just because we are an American. Those people are racist, sexist, bigoted and homo phobic. It's a fact that they throw homosexuals off tall buildings. They stone to death female adulterers, or give the man or woman 100 lashes with a whip. Those people usually die from the lashing.

And I read here how some of you are concerened Larry's racist. I do not see him advocating throwing homosexuals off the Empire State building, stoning to death a woman for adultery, or giving 100 lashes.

As for Abu Grab.... They had pictures taken.... I saw no beheadings, or beatings with wire, no genitals being hooked up to a battery, like Saddam or the Terrorists do.

Larry is not racist...

Go to the Middle East..... Walk down some of the streets unarmed... You'll find out what racism is. You'll be attacked just because you're an American. When that happens...
Do you belive you deserved it ??
Did YOU do anything to anyone over there ?? I haven't and I will never deserve it.

Keith Lowell Jensen said...

Calling people rag heads or complaining that a Muslim prayer be allowed at an American political function, that is racism.
All you're doing here is showing that you too are racist in that you approve of this and consider such behavior okay because of the beliefs and behavior of some Muslims. There are Christians and there are Americans who believe in killing homosexuals as well you know, and who blow up clinics, kill doctors, in fact I think it was a white, Christian American who committed the Oklahoma City bombing. Would this excuse me hating all white Christian Americans? Hmmmm, maybe it would excuse these American hating Muslims you mention.
As for weather you deserve hatred and anger from the people of the middle east, you probably don't, but they're hating you because of the actions of people they affiliate you with. It's the same reason you're hating them. Want the hate to stop? Try harder.

ian said...

I think all these comments add even more credibility your post. Thanks folks.

Keith Lowell Jensen said...

Yep. I do think you're right there.

Larry aint racist, he just don't like them other races.

He's just tellin' it like it is.

He's just not afraid to be politically incorrect.

blah blah blah

Hans Jensen said...

I absolutely love racist comedy, and joking around about race. When you read those quotes, they are not funny in any way. Now if he said them in a creative way, and actually turned it into a joke, then you could propose the argument that he is saying it in a funny tone, but regardless, still racist.

The fact that so many people have come on here and said this is not racist, proves my theory of his fans not being the most intelligent individuals. The kind of people that would laugh at something like "git r done".

Keith Lowell Jensen said...

Yeah, it really does require a certainly level of sophistication to know the difference between laughing at our racial differences and the resultant tension and celebrating the hatred while cheering on your team. It's a level of sophistication that Larry or at least his fans have not reached.

Anonymous said...

get a sense of humor.
stop being so damn politically correct.
its a joke. hes a comedian.

KLJ said...

I love comedy. Dedicated my life to it in fact.
And I love well done humor about race; Pryor, Carlin, Mull, Dick Gregory.

It's a weak argument to excuse anything someone says because they're a comedian. Lenny Bruce and Charlie Chaplin were both comedians as well who were really passionate about what they had to say.

Yes, it's a joke, but what is considered funny is important here.

Anonymous said...

Anyone can make an argument in their favor when they hand pick various quotes and stack them together to suit their cause.

I've listened to a lot of Larry and I hear him picking on EVERYONE! hmmm... I sure didn't see any white trash jokes on your page but I've heard him make plenty. If I want a lop sided perspective, I'll just turn on the TV and watch the news because just like you, they're open minded and intelligent.

Lighten up, it's funny!

p.s. anonymous #3... you make a good point but stop using all caps, it's impossible to read FFS. :)

KLJ said...

You wrote: Anyone can make an argument in their favor when they hand pick various quotes and stack them together to suit their cause.

So, you're suggesting that
"commie rag head carpet flying wicker basket on the head balancing scumbags" was maybe taken out of context?

That's a riot.

And you're right, I don't make white trash jokes. Here, let me try one:
"You might be a redneck if... You live in an economically depressed area and do not have access to quality education or health care."

Nope, guess I really can't do it. Damn!

Larry is not racist and is pretty much hilarious.
Just beause he cracks racist jokes doesnt make him racist.
Everybody cracks racist jokes nowadays.
And like that one guy said below me, its just comedy.
He is a conservative, blue collar comedian that and we find him pretty funny over here.
Yeah, hes not politically correct but oh well.
Black comedians crack white jokes but its okay if they do it.
Larry cracks foreign jokes and yall get all butthurt about it.
LIVE A LITTLE seriously.

Keith Lowell Johnson you must be a pretty crappy comedian.

KLJ said...

Well you're right about Keith Lowell Johnson. He's awful.

You guys all make the same argument. I've already adressed that there are white guys who do racial humor and its done well. Martin Mull is fine example. George Carlin's another, as is Lenny Bruce. It's not that he's white, it's that "rag head carpet flying wicker basket on the head balancing scumbags" is not funny. Sorry. Go ahead, excuse it as a joke. It's racist.

If you excuse all racism by saying "It's just a joke" what are the racists supposed to do whent they WANT to make a racist joke? Seriously man, be fair to the racists.

By the way I'm on tour right now with a man from India, a women from Iran, a Jew from Arizona and a born again Christian white guy. I do LOTS of racial and religious based humor. For some reason people never doubt that I'm joking. Hmmmm? GO figure.

And anyone else who wants to comment, why not read the other comments and see if six people have already made your same argument first?

KLJ said...

1. If you're going to call people retarded, you should proofread your post first to assure that you don't come off a bit disabled yourself.

2. I never once implied that he doesn't have the right. I merely criticized him for comments that I perceive as racist. "think about it" yourself.

3. Are you arguing that he isn't racist? I'm a bit confused. You refer to "those damn immigrants" and this leads me to believe that your real message is; "Yeah he's racist. YAY! Woo Hoo! My strong white hero."

4. The Sioux Indian tribe just called. They wanted me to let you know that they agree with your statements about "those damn immigrants."

5. I love you.

Anonymous said...

There are more "rednecks" and/or country folk in this country than not. If your calling Larry the Cable Guy racist, then your calling Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor, Martin Lawrence, Chris Tucker, Eddie Murphy, etc. racist as well. Its called an "act". You know actors usually do "acting". Do you really think Edward Norton was a skin head in American History X. Grow the fuck up you ignorant fuck

KLJ said...

Your comments are tiresome. Did you read the conversation that has already going on here? You're just repeating the same tired line. At least you are familiar with punctuation, capitalization and basic sentence structure. I'll give you that.
As I've pointed out, there is a difference between the jokes of Martin Mull, Lenny Bruce, George Carlin (all of whom did racial material, all of whom are white) and your man Larry.
Larry calls people "rag head carpet flying wicker basket on the head balancing scumbags" and that in itself is the joke. If you're not sophisticated enough to see the difference between that and the comics you mention than I doubt I can help you.
I do wonder though, if a comic WERE a racist, what would that look like?
Lastly, if you have a compelling argument to offer, why resort to comments like "Grow the fuck up you ignorant fuck?" You weaken your own argument and make yourself look bad by behaving in such an uncivilized manner.

Its funny when i came across this about a month ago A guy got arrested near here who was wearing a Larry the cable guy T-Shirt for a hate crime,he assaulted two fairly old Sikhs who he called "terrorist!" they had no idea who he was and were just walking on thier way.

The Frank truth is people like larry the cable guy are enablers of Racism and Genocide as they promote it as normal and Even noble and its only going to get worse as the ecomony staggers hatred will be directed torwards everyone that looks different eventually it will(and is) being directed to thouse who think different,I am sure most of larry's fans would probably support sticking "non patriotic americans" into concentration camps

KLJ said...

When did I ever ask you to care about my life?
I posted my opinion on Larry's comedy and on racism in comedy and I made a much better attempt at an argument than you've been able to conjure.
You call me a bitch and you point out that more people like him than like me. It's a weak argument. Hitler enjoyed amazing popularity in his time as well. No, I'm not calling Larry Hitler, he's too stupid to ever be that dangerous.
As for you intentionally writing like a teenager, I hope that you are one. If not I'm very embarrassed for you.
Why are you afraid to put your name to your argument?

3AM said...

Yeah, I think a large part of the problem is that his audience, or at least his intended audience, is just too stupid to recognize the difference between laughing at a joke and letting a comedian tell them to be xenophobic and homophobic. I think that's more of a problem than whether he is joking or not (which I don't think he is). I've seen the same thing with South Park, which I actually enjoy most of the time. Some people just don't get that it's over the top. Also Chappelle's Show (which I REALLY liked). I don't think people actually figured out he was trying to make an intelligent social observations through comedy, they just liked yelling "I'm Rick James, BITCH". I think Dave said it best-

"You know why my show is good? Because the network officials say you're not smart enough to get what I'm doing, and every day I fight for you. I tell them how smart you are. Turns out, I was wrong. You people are stupid."

In hindsight, none of that really applies here, because I honesty don't believe Larry is trying to make an intelligent anything.

KLJ said...

Well stated.
I'm so glad I wrote this because the collection of moronic comment I have compiled here are just so amazing. It's like a museum of stupidity. I should apply for some grants.

Mark Park said...

It doesn't matter to me whether he is a racist or not because the real point is that he's not at all funny. It's not just a matter of taste anyone who thinks he is funny is a lame moron.

I'm black living in a small white town. People can never get over their own sterotypes; and people run to their sterotypes before they get to know some one. For the past decade I've realized comedy like Larry The Cable breeds alot of negativity.

People who live where they are the majority and dominant culture are lucky that they don't have to be looked down on and hated for reasons beyond their control. It is something that most people have no idea about. And if you do, then why not try to stop this kind of nationalized slander? It's impact is poisoning the well of this country, and by relation the world.

clearly you don't know what satire is. you, and all the rag heads that follow you, need to look that up in the dictionary. as a matter of fact, its people like you, that have made the world so full of political correctness, that most people are nervous about saying nigger, spic, dune coon, and the like. have you never made fun of anyone in your pathetic little life? if not, i guess that would make you similar to ghandi, or mother tereasa. go back to where ever it is that you came from, if you don't like it here!

KLJ said...

Too bad you'll never read this reply because you were too much of a coward to be anything but anonymous in your post.
Go back where you come from? I come from HERE! The place that has championed people like MLK Jr., Mark Twain, Ben Franklin and other folks who didn't love it or leave but stood up and complained and worked to improve.
As for comprehension of satire it is you who do not have a sophisticated take on the subject to think that you can't be a racist idiot just because you're also being funny. I assume you have known racists yes? They do make jokes.
And I'll hold up Carlin, Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Louis CK and so many others as examples of race being dealt with in a way that is irreverent, ballsy and NOT racist. You do not have a monopoly on comedy fandom and you are talking to a passionate consumer of all things stand up. Larry is hack comedy for morons. Enjoy.

Alex said...

The 2 quotes of "larry's" that you used for examples are just blatant racist statements. There's nothing funny about them at all, they're just racist insults. Read them over everyone, where's the joke. If your argument is that it's just comedy and he's not seriously racist then I ask you to read it over and tell me where the joke is. "Larry" has a right to free speech but he's not free from critisism and I think he deserves a lot more critisism for his racist statements. Not to mention his juvenile jokes about retards. It makes very sad to know that all that Dan Whitney aka Larry the Cable Guy had to do to be the most popular comedian in America is adopt a southern accent and make jokes about "ragheads" retards and whitetrash. The same shit I heard in elementary school.

Mike said...

I'm aware this is an old post, but I had to say something. I find some of LTCG's material amusing. The things you mentioned here, not so much. But to be honest, I'm not here to talk about the post, so much as to say that the conversation in the comments here, is 1,000x funnier than anything I've ever heard from LTCG. These comments, are hilarious. Again, I know it's an old post, but I felt like contributing anyways.

Anonymous said...

period and point blank. jokingly of course, Eddie Murphy "jokes" about "honkies", "crackers", and "whities" and its all fun and games, a redneck make fun of "niggers" and its racism at its best. what happened to equality? why is this such a big deal?? just because at some point waaay back in the day, we took some africans out of africa, brought them back to america and put them to work. Well, i am irish, can i go live for free in england? because we were slaves to them. before christopher culubus ever set sail. its the attitude stupid. its the constant give me give me. lets live off welfare and sell crack for a living while middle class people work their asses off for what little they have.

KLJ said...

It's not black and white. Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor make race jokes, and you're right, I'm fine with it but I'm also fine with it when George Carlin and Martin Mull do it (white guys) and I find Paul Mooney (black guy) just as offensive as I find Larry.
So, there's goes that theory. The rest of what you said, shows a knowledge of history and currently race relations that is absolutely pathetic. I have Irish heritage as well and yes the Irish were treated terribly but it was a national and cultural distinction. An Irishman can walk down the street and you'd never know he was an Irishman nor would anyone in this day and age care one way or another.
I know many middle class black people working ever bit as hard as us middle class whites and I know plenty of white drug addicts and white frat boy, rich kid pricks. Judging a race by their worst puts us in big trouble, as I am loath to be judge according to my kinship with the likes of you!

crowliosis said...

I'm curious how comments that refer to a failed philosophy of governance, a religion prcticed by people of many different races, and a type of headgear worn by many races across an entire geographical region, are considered racist? Do you actually understand what racism is? Are you trying to be just another person who vilifies anyone who says something they don't like by branding them with an -ism? He is insulting a religion specifically. I'm curious how that offends you Keith.

Dan Allenderwest said...

Did someone really say "we took some blacks out of Africa and put them to work?" Seriously? I usually try to create a reasoned argument, but no. Fuck that guy.

KLJ said...

C'mon Crowliosis, Rag Head is just describing the attire? It's not a racial slur? And nappy headed just describes hair, and Alabama Porch Monkey just describes a geographic location, a nice place to sit in front of one's house, and certain simian qualities that some humans may be seen to possess. And when you're insulting a people and you use these terms your not singling out qualities or perceived qualities of their race or ethnicity to deride them, you're just being helpful so that it is known to whom your comments are addressed right. Wow, that was really hard work trying to see your argument there.
Rag head is a racist term. Commie is not racist but stupidly inaccurate and ignorant in this context and please remember that this is all in response to Abu Ghraib where we committed horrible, embarrassing offenses against many innocent people. They were all innocent in that they weren't found guilty, but many would never be found guilty of anything more than being Iraqi. I'll give you this much, bigoted or xenophobic may have been more accurate terms than racist which undersells what a full on prick this guy is.
