FBI Had 12-Page File On George Carlin Because He Made Jokes About Government

3 posts in this topic

Comedian George Carlin is known as one of the most controversial and outspoken entertainers of his time, and as far as the government is concerned, he could have possibly been a terrorist.

Carlin was not a violent or criminal person in any way, but he said things during his routines that struck at the root of the problems in our society. He went into great detail about corruption in government and business.

During the 1978 Supreme Court case, FCC v Pacifica Foundation, the government cited Carlin’s work as an example of profanity. They used his “Seven Dirty Words” segment to show the type of language that was being used in records and broadcasts. However, the government’s interest in his work did not stop there.

Just after his 1969 appearance on the Jackie Gleason show, Carlin caught the attention of the FBI because he made jokes about then-FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover. According to the government, Carlin had “referred to the Bureau and the Director in a satirical vein.”

Aha, so it is true then? "Many a true word is spoken in jest."

Maybe, just maybe old George was just too close to the core for them to not retaliate, and in the process distort, manipulate and massage the facts!  Is it not so in this case, Seems the lady (government) doth protest too much me thinks!
