Jon Lovitz Astonished His Anti-Obama Speech Went Viral: ‘He’s President, Not King!’

Actor Jon Lovitz was flummoxed that his expletive-laced, anti-Obama diatribe made international news. “Because I criticized the President, it’s news?” Lovitz tweeted incredulously. “Last I checked, he’s President, not King! This is America! Freedom of Speech. what’s the bfd?”

Once upon a time criticizing the king or the government was a crime called seditious libel:

John Peter Zenger was arrested and imprisoned for seditious libel in 1734 after his newspaper criticized the colonial governor of New York. Zenger spent nearly 10 months in jail before being acquitted by a jury in August 1735. One hundred years later, Nova Scotia’s Joseph Howe also won a jury acquittal on a charge of seditious libel after his newspaper printed allegations that local politicians and police were stealing from the people.

Ever wonder why Jon Stewart doesn’t make fun of Obama? He doesn’t want to anger the Obot brownshirts.

    This isn’t 2008. Jon Lovitz as the child pointing at the naked King Obama and refusing to shut up is funny.

    Stewart isn’t afraid of the Brownshirts – he’s afraid of the drone strikes.

    Lovitz is a personal SNL favorite of mine from the funny daze. Remember when it was FUNNY to play Linda Tripp and Janet Reno IN DRAG !? Bill Clinton as a McDonald’s stealing fries from kids horndog? Hillary as a shrew? Monica doing Bill and Sadam at the same time? Hardy, har, har ? What happened?

    • I think its called PC run amok. Because of SNL’s unwillingness to make fun of anything related to Obama in a substantial way, it is bland and in essence SUCKS now.

      Or Bush as the guy at the kids table while Cheney ran the country. Or Sarah Palin as an idiot and Todd as an incestuous child molester?

    • wmcb says:

      Yeah, continuing to investigate HUNDREDS dead at the hands of our own DOJ’s malfeasance, while the DOJ stonewalls and pleads the fifth is a real “witch hunt” over nothing.

      KEEP GOING, Issa!!!

    Jon Lovitz has I guess had the rude awakening that many others have had. I’m sure he’s getting “Die, you racist bastard” hate mail, to his great surprise.

    He’s labeled a teabagger and republican ratfucker now as well – no matter what his actual political beliefs.

    • Cause he’s no longer a Democrat (or any of us) according to the rules of the New Democratic Party. If you don’t follow Obama law and opt to criticize him, you lose your membership.

        Then why won’t they stop asking me for money?

          Just received an email from Robert Gibbs (me and millions of others). My favorite line:

          Mitt Romney and the Republicans want to take our country back to tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires and let Wall Street write the rules.

          Take us back to that? When did we leave it?

        I was watching Fox’s “The Five” and Bob Beckel (who ran the epic fail that was the Mondale campaign) said Lovitz should not call the president an asshole and then basically said if he doesn’t like it, he doesn’t have to be a Democrat.

        There’s a slogan for you. Obama 2012: If you don’t like it, vote for the other guy.

    There’s been a lot of shunning going on over those who dare insult Obama. For example, Lovitz is being called a “has-been” or a failure. He actually has more work in production than George Clooney.

    Now, I don’t find anything on SNL particularly original or inspired, but I loved Lovitz on Fox’s “The Critic.” I think he’s pretty funny and he was devastating in his critique of Obama’s statements about the rich.

      I have to think that this is going to cast a chill on the Obama-Hollywood crowd. No matter how much they love the way cool preezy, knowing that stepping even a 1/2 inch off the reservation will get them this kind of pummeling can’t be going down too well.

    • DandyTiger says:

      I’m hammering one out right now.

    • leslie says:

      Some of the comments are sooo funny. I think I’ll go back and read some more.

    • zaladonis says:

      Fortunately right now I’m in a rental, so I don’t end up having to do a lot of work”

      People pay rent for rentals. He’s living in subsidized housing.

      But he did tell the truth in saying, “I don’t end up having to do a lot of work.”

    • votermom says:

      I told my apolitical teen about that and she laughed.
      These wind farms also end up shredding birds, don’t they?
      Good example of difference between theory & practice.

      • DandyTiger says:

        And in some areas, like parts of WV, they’re actually cutting down 1000s of acres of forest in order to install them. RFKJr.s on the case of that idiocy.

        In Scotland they discovered that installing wind turbines actually makes the peet rich soil below rot, which in turn release co2s at the level of a coal burning power station.

        Having said that, I’m sure there are some regions where you don’t have the problems mentioned in that article. But the main point is, nothing is a perfect solution for all situations. See for example, growing corn for fuel instead of food, which in turn causes people to burn down the rain forests in order to grow food we need, because we’re not growing food here.

        Stupid should hurt. In fact it does.

    • zaladonis says:

      I’ve never understood why they’re anywhere except the desert, like outside of Palm Springs.

      I also don’t understand (actually I do) why every single commercial building’s roof isn’t outfitted with solar panels that feed into the electrical grid. And, for that matter, our government should fund outfitting private homes with them if homeowners are interested. And our President should have established a Manhattan Project kind of program to develop a high capacity battery, which would completely change the dynamic of energy collection, storage and use.

      Instead, following a horrendous disaster people pretend is all cleaned up, they approve more off shore drilling.
