Louis CK talks about 'Louie'2 on Opie and Anthony(2011)

by hoohoohoorobin • 46,811 views

Louis CK talks about his TV Show 'Louie', Sarah Palin and censoring Mark Twain on Opie and Anthony. January 5, 2011. Sirius-XM Satellite Radio.

That caller Kyle has my utmost respect. He did what a lot of people do and formed an opinion based solely on emotion, came up against valid criticism, and then changed his mind once he realized his argument was untenable. Most people will go to their grave holding stupid beliefs just because they are too stubborn or proud to admit that they based them on emotional reasons. The majority being ideas based on race, politics, and religion.

Perspective from literary critic Russell Baker:  "The people whom Huck and Nigger Jim encounter on the Mississippi are drunkards, murderers, bullies, swindlers, lynchers, thieves, liars, mows, frauds, child abusers, numbskulls, hypocrites, windbags and traders in human flesh. All are white. The one man of honor in this phantasmagoria is 'Nigger Jim,' as Twain called him to emphasize the irony of a society in which the only true gentleman was held beneath contempt." Its not accidental that the character with the most humanity is even referred to so inhumanely.  I'm a supporter absolute free speech and original artistic intent.  The more you use this word.. and speak loudly of its ugliness, the less power it truly has over people.  To withhold from using it, in proper context, is to give it an undo reverence.  But I'm on the losing side of this.

@Frankay615 That's good for you. Millions have an awful time. Should parents be forced to pay for failing public schools that cost 3x as much to educate a child as the private schools do and yet provide a much worse service? The truth is public schools are worse than ever, millions of kids are coming out functionally illiterate! The majority of kids did not enjoy their schooling. If you enjoyed it you probably were either reasonably popular, or you lived in a good area code.

How many other comics have this level of intelligence and awareness about why Huck Finn is so important? Maybe Carlin and Lewis Black. Today comedy seems to be about a bunch of infantile jesters that are trained to amuse and distract the docile masses. Keep 'em giggling over mindless shit while they are being bled dry by a system that ruins their lives every day.

at the beginning of huck finn in some editions it has a forward by mark twain that that book should not be taught in shcools. Not becuase it was unpleasant but becuase he didn't want it to be taught in that setting.

Also, the more I listen to O&A, the more I really have a lot of respect and admiration for Jimmy Norton. He's funny, he's humble, he's intelligent, and he's quality entertainment. I really appreciate havnig his voice both on the show and just out in the world. Very cool.

True it is a good sum of money, but when you have two kids and an ex-wife AND you're stepping down from making what you make having a primetime television show and national tours as a stand up, it doesn't seem that much I bet

Anybody 30 to 40 grew up with black pride as the norm in school, and you knew better not to say the n-word, but future generations will be totally different. I see it already. There are whites in their 20's and younger saying the n-words just to say it, say it to be funny, and even say it to be racist. If you keep the n-word in the proper context people will learn not to say it at all. Like if they read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn for example teaches people what the n-world means.

@eescobar719 Yeah but there are other awesome comedians who I also admire who would totally disagree with Louis CK here... Doug Stanhope or Joe Rogan come to mind. I don't need to be a genius to know it's not as obvious as "louis thinks it so it must be right" I can simply observe other geniuses disagree so somebody has to be wrong. My experience of public schools is that they FUCKING SUCK.

So true, censoring is changing history which will cause things to repeat as you can see.

Also, I think Patrice was right about "the cartels" of Hollywood. As much as I love that poker scene, the truth is that it is misleading. That's not the origin of the word faggot (it is demonstrably, verifiably false) and for them to present it as such demonizes it in ways that are not tied to reality. Go look it up. I like Louie but he's disseminating false information via that scene. Other than that, it is very good.

@CoolerKing37 Your name says it all, "Coolerking". Why are you wasting time with a "cunt" like me?Don't you have lots of drinking to do? I bet you're just the life of the party that everyone gets tired of after about two minutes. A real Belushi aren't you? A drunken oaf that just loves to start shit with anyone that you disagree with. Because you are incapable of an honest and intelligent dialog, you lash out with simplistic and malevolent comments. Grow up you child.

PC culture (like the Xmas/Happy Holidays shit) is pathetic because it's all about censorship, which is about placating weakness. Weakness should not be coddled or pandered to, which is what PC culture and censorship do. Words are words and they can hurt if they're in context, but only stupid people, mentally weak people, don't understand context. Do not let weakness endure. Do not suffer censorship. Faggot, nigger, cunt, anti-American sentiments, anarchy, hate are all okay in a free society.

@Bodatiousfilms It was a book, that was made into a TV mini series in the 70's. A saga of African-American life, based on Alex Haley's family history. Kunta Kinte is abducted from his African village, sold into slavery, and taken to America. He makes several escape attempts until he is finally caught and maimed.

16:20 Ugh. The "socialist" who caved on a Public Option after a month, despite having a near Super Majority in Congress, and went on to support and sign into law a bill that benefits private insurance companies. The tax rates into the late 90s worked and there's absolutely no disputing it, whatsoever. Wanting to return to that doesn't make you a socialist...

@davyjames on the contrary, I was not very popular at all, and was in a area code just outside the city where many inner city kids caused trouble. I was just raised by my parents to care about my education (that's why we go to school) rather than focus on making a million friends or being cool. Your experience is how you make it. There is only so much teachers can do. Those same kids in my public school, if sent to private school, would have most likely acted the same. my 2 cents.

@Frankay615 You might have an instinctive reaction to what I'm going to say and wanna argue with me but I assure you that if you really think about it you'll know it's true. Your success came from your good parenting and your own desire to learn, not from your school. If you had never gone to school but kept the same good parents you would still have learnt all you needed to know. For any child who has even a modicum of curiosity and desire to learn public school is dreadfully slow and boring.
