Alec Baldwin proves once again that left-wing celebs are the biggest jerks. What is it about liberal stars? George Clooney, Rosie O’Donnell, Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Al Franken, Bill Maher, Cher... So foul of mouth and mean of spirit. You never hear such crap from that nice Mr. Eastwood. Baldwin, especially, is a real beaut. This time the target of his tantrum was not some Republican “oil whore” or a Tea Partier. The 30 Rock volcano’s latest eruption is a reportedly racist tirade against a New York Post photographer. The NYPD hate crimes unit is even looking into it. Baldwin, 54, allegedly called lensman G.N. Miller, who is black, a “crackhead,” a “drug dealer” and a racial slur that begins with “c” and rhymes with loon. Miller and a reporter had approached Baldwin on a New York sidewalk about a lawsuit filed against his wife, Hilaria, 28, by one of her yoga students. Little did Baldwin know Miller, 56, is not so much a crackhead as a retired NYPD detective. The actor “was saying some serious racist stuff,” Miller told the Post. “He said some choice words about my mother, and he was telling people in the street that I’m a drug dealer. “He could have said a lot of other stuff, but he used all the stereotypes associated with black people.” How very bigoted of the “liberal” Mr. Baldwin, who has filed his own harassment complaint against Miller and denies saying “coon.” Hmmmm. Alec also tweeted the “crackhead” reference, but deleted it. Wait. I thought Alec quit Twitter after his tweeting attack on American Airlines, which kicked him off a flight for being “violent, abusive and aggressive” and refusing to get off his cellphone. Phones are the ill-tempered Baldwin’s undoing because they leave evidence. Remember the voicemail for daughter Ireland calling her a “rude, thoughtless little pig (without) the brains or the decency of a human being.” She was 11 at the time. Nice. I don’t know why Hollywood lefties get so viciously personal, why they savage the likes of Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney not on issues, but personally. Perhaps stars feel guilty about their own great wealth, leisure and privilege and are overcompensating. Maybe they have concluded they are smarter than conservatives and libertarians and are bound by the laws of natural selection to insult us into extinction. Perhaps, like Alec Baldwin, they are simply more prone to petty rages than are regular folks. Too bad, really. I’d love to see Alec Baldwin try a hissy-fit on Chuck Norris.
