#rsrh Make Tom Hanks live by his own set of rules.

Via The Daily Caller. For those without video: it shows Tom Hanks involved in a private comedy skit that involved one guy making slams on conservatives – and another dressed in a stereotypical ‘native African’ costume, complete with blackface.

And Mr. Hanks just let it all pass without comment.

Please note: if Tom Hanks cannot live by the aforementioned set of rules, then perhaps Tom Hanks should contemplate not being so quick to support an ideology that dictates that others do.

PS: Unlike Ed Morrissey I’m not torn about hitting this at all. I have had it up to here with sanctimonious hypocrites who think that they can lecture people on standards that they themselves either surreptitiously violate, or let others violate without comment. Put another way: I’m perfectly fine with the idea that dressing up in blackface, and in a fashion that evokes crude racial/cultural stereotypes, is is a tasteless activity that shouldn’t be allowed to pass unchallenged*; I just wish that Tom Hanks agreed with me.

*Note that I don’t think that this sort of thing should be illegal. People can be and should be allowed to be schmucks in public. But then, I think that social disapproval for a particularly egregious violation is sufficient negative reinforcement.

  1. Example #246,907 in the list of ‘if this was done by conservatives, the MSM would be all over it pointing out the racism’.

  2. Ya have to love the class clowns. Dinero, hanks,While they make fools out of themselves everyone laughed with them, after they left everyone laughed at them.
