NY state senator wants Alec Baldwin banned from Hollywood

It’s a bit late for that, isn’t it? I don’t see anybody lining up to go see The Shadow 2. The last time you saw Alec Baldwin in a movie* was his bit part as the sweatiest loudmouth in The Departed**, which was 7 years ago. Since then he’s been on 30 Rock, which America ignored but was kept on the air because of all those times Tina Fey mocked Sarah Palin. Baldwin is pretty much finished and he knows it, which might explain why he’s so angry all the time even though he’s married to a gorgeous yoga instructor who’s a quarter-century his junior.

But according to some folks, Baldwin shouldn’t even be getting the meager roles to which he’s been reduced. Politicker:

Having already conquered the rapper Lil Wayne for his alleged slights against New York City, State Senator Malcolm Smith is now calling for a boycott against actor Alec Baldwin until he seeks professional help. Mr. Smith made the call for Mr. Baldwin to be blacklisted following a New York Post story that claimed the 30 Rock star used racial slurs in a confrontation with one of the tabloid newspaper’s paparazzos.

“If these allegations are true, then no television network or film studio should hire the veteran actor until he seeks help,” Mr. Smith said in a statement. “In today’s modern age it’s a disgrace that people still use remarks that provide hatred to others based on race, religion or origin.”

This is a tough one. For liberals, I mean. Baldwin is a lefty in good standing, so if you’re a lefty, your instinct is to defend him. But Smith is black, so if you criticize him, you’ll be called a racist. What to do? Boycotts and speech codes and such aren’t supposed to bite guys like Alec Baldwin in the ass.

    Now, in fairness to Alec Baldwin *gags* he has been in some other stuff… like… uh…

    Oh, forget it. I can’t do it. I just can’t.

    I so loved him in “Glengarry Glen Ross.”

    Time to use his own lines against him…

    “…*you are* shit, hit the bricks pal, and beat it, ’cause you are going *out*.”

    Wonder why Malcolm Smith isn’t defending Baldwin’s 1st Amendment protections?

    Free speech doesn’t simply allow the airing of differing views, it also allows us to weigh the character of others.

    @Tim; to the lefties free speech only applies when you follow the party line else it beomes dangerous hate speech.

    Anyway, Baldwin has been on the Hollywood version of the dole for the past 6 or 7 years with his role on 30 Rock (it was never a rating’s winner, always running way low). For that matter so has Tim Meadows as well as Tina Fey. I suspect that you won’t see Baldwin or Meadows around again anytime soon and as for Ms. Tina she won’t be in front of a camera (or head writer) unless Sarah Palin comes roaring back on the National scene. In any event, they made their money for being good little soldiers. My only regret is that Baldwin decided not to run for Mayor of New York. Damn, that would have been a great campaign.

    What’s in Alec’s wallet?

    A KKK card, apparently.

    This is a perfect example of karma coming around to bite you. He swore he would leave the country if GWB was elected, and he didn’t. He experiences a “decline” and now someone wants him banned from Hollywood?

    Exxcellllent!

    Madame Pelosistein, (palm reader extraordinaire) sees many rolls of duct tape being used to wrap up the progressive heads that will explode over this liberal dilemma.
