Chuck Lorre trashes Mitt Romney and 'The Bachelor'

At the end of every episode of Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, and Mike & Molly, the vanity card for Chuck Lorre Productions contains a direct message from Chuck Lorre himself.

Often very personal in nature, the topics are very diverse and even though the cards are only displayed for a few moments on television, CBS has been to known to censor his words. This time, Chuck has decided to censor himself.

Chuck Lorre
In the card that popped up at the end of last night's episode of The Big Bang Theory, Lorre wrote: "I've decided to save everybody a lot of unhappiness and not submit this week's vanity card to the CBS censors (I know when I've crossed the line with these things and don't need a bunch of corporate lawyers getting their cotton blend panties in a bunch). Accordingly, I've banished the offending card to that dark place where all my offending cards go - the internet."

On his official website, Lorre published the uncensored version of his message. An unabashed supporter of US President Barack Obama, Lorre turned intensely political and attacked Republican candidate Mitt Romney less than a week before Election Day. Following is the full posting.



CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #397
CENSORED BY ME

What does it say about us when we are simultaneously pro-life and pro AK-47's? What does it say about us when God's will would allow a rapist to ask for shared custody and child support payments? What does it say about us when a black guy's in charge and we say things like "it's time to take America back"? What does it say about us when we think the institution of marriage is threatened by gay people who love each other, but not by idiotic game shows like "The Bachelor"? What does it say about us when we export democracy with Hellfire missiles, then restrict the right to vote here? What does it say about us when we build nuclear submarines to defend against exploding vests? What does it say about us when we think a guy who doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, keeps his money offshore, stubs his toe and says "H-E-double hockey sticks" and wears magical underwear can feel our pain? What does it say about us when we demand less government and more FEMA? What does it say about us when we completely forgot the colossal shit storm we were in four years ago?

The answer, my friends, is not blowing in the wind.

The answer is, "We are fucking crazy."



While I'm not a fan of Lorre's brand of broad humor, his message here is pretty accurate aside from his comments about Mitt Romney not drinking or smoking. Those aren't requirements to empathize with the general population. How do you feel about Chuck's political statement?

but to be fair what happened to the white half of obama america is run by a person for one, secondly he is half white, you are not run by a color, you are ran by an educated aristocrat at the end of the day that is all most countries will ever be but we get to vote who make the decisions that make the rich richer and the poor content

Oh look, more Hollywood nonsense. > What does it say about us when we are simultaneously pro-life and pro AK-47's? The two have nothing to do with one another. If it weren't for defensive weapons you would not have much of a soap box. > What does it say about us when God's will would allow a rapist to ask for shared custody and child support payments? That isnt Gods will. Take a theology class before even attempting to Understand this. > What does it say about us when a black guy's in charge and we say things like "it's time to take America back"? Nothing. We would say the same if he were white. Racist much? > What does it say about us when we think the institution of marriage is threatened by gay people who love each other, but not by idiotic game shows like "The Bachelor"? Again, the two have nothing to do with one another. Nonsensical point. and on and on....

Hollywood cry baby typical. He has money so he thinks everyone should have to hear his opinion or read about it. He makes great tv but should keep his crap to himself if everyone wants his opinion we would say " hey Mr. Lorre put your opinion on tv after your shows" I love big bang as much as my AK. I don't know but I doubt Mr. Lorre has no way of protecting himself and family. That being said the weapons will always land in the hands of the lawless. Any way God bless America great television just keep it to yourself.

Fred Montreal:

"the day you can write ... in four different languages."

 

What would the 4 different languages you can write in be?  Because English obviously isn't one of them.

 

"You can come in play in my sandbox"

 

Why would anyone want to play in the sandbox of someone who would restrict personal freedoms like you would?  Geeze, you're as bad as Romney :-(

Few people think, most people just react or repet. Those who think they also see while others don't. It seems that having money or a steady income gives most people the feeling of being right... Mr. Lorre can see some of the obvious contradictions of the new American way of life and I'm sure he wrote only about a few of them... the few he thinks American people that read his cards can digest! I believe he is right. To be more right would mean that he will have to go into politics and that I think is not what he wants. So keep up the good thinking and thanks for the effort, even though it is definitely craaaaazzzy to preach to crazy people!

who would want a "Viwer" LIKE YOU anyway, you moron? Romney eats ass and whereas I side with sheen on the whole lorre debacle, you can't deny Lorre's got a ton of talent. And the whole drinking smoking jab is a direct comment on how dangerously hypocritical PRUDENESS is getting in the US of A. (much like the prudeness your comment on this shows in your article. how can anyone claim to care or represent the less fortunate when he was born with a platinum spoon up his ass?

To the last two guys, I'm pretty sure FRED MONTREAL was talking about no longer being a fan of Chuck Lorre, not Joel Thomas. Although I can see how the horrific grammar used in that post could lead to confusion. As for Lorre, while I think he's being somewhat hyperbolic about Romney, he's certainly entitled to his opinion. As we all are.
