• Adam Carolla: Hollywood Is “Trying to Turn Everyone on the Right Into a Monster”

    "It's totally insane"

    Adam Carolla is at it again, and really, who can argue with him? Ever since the early days of  co-hosting The Man Show with Jimmy Kimmel and Loveline with Dr. Drew, Carolla hasn’t been afraid to speak his mind…and most of his thoughts are anything but politically correct. He was in Washington, D.C. this week to promote his latest book, “President Me: The America That’s in My Head,” and while sitting in on WMAL’s morning show, Adam really let Hollywood have it:

    “Yeah. I mean everybody’s trying to turn everyone on the right into a monster and Hollywood is pretty squarely on the left, so…

    It’s this kind of thing where if you say: ‘I think people should present a valid ID when you vote’ — ‘oh, so you’re for voter suppression.’  Or if you go: ‘look, parents oughta make their own kid’s breakfast’ — ‘oh, okay, you’re anti-children’ and all this nonsense.

    It’s this spurious, weird battle that they undertake to try to take people who are really just for the kinds of qualities this country had 50 years ago; where, if you have kids, you take care of your own kids, you educate your kids, you keep your family intact, you focus on them, you focus on education, you focus on family, and they try to turn that into something negative like you’re ‘anti-this’ or ‘anti-that.’ It’s totally insane.

    I don’t buy it.  I don’t care.  It probably doesn’t win me any friends or make me very popular, but it doesn’t matter. I have my own pirate ship and I don’t care.”

    That reference to a “pirate ship” would be Adam’s wildly successful podcast, which he’s fully in charge of. There’s no worrying about having to be PC on “The Adam Carolla Show,” since’s he’s beholden to no one except himself. And that’s a great thing when you’ve got a guy so willing to stick it to the liberal elites.
