Stephen Baldwin is the Sarah Palin of the Drug War

Since the last US presidential election, Sarah Palin has come to epitomize what I see as a major flaw in modern conservative politics. To me, there has been no better example to date (George W. Bush is a close second) of the Ignorant leading the Emotional.

Palin is a symbol of reactionary, gut-based politics and has a long list a gaffes and ridiculous statements under her belt that many feel have contributed significantly to the demise of the Republican Party.

Actor turned media loudmouth Stephen Baldwin is the Sarah Palin of the Drug War. Watch this debate between Baldwin and Quentin Hardy of Forbes magazine on CNBC.

Wow. Brilliant arguments Stephen!

While politicians and media personalities like Palin and Baldwin succeed in whipping up support from their die-hard supporters – by representing their side so poorly, their mindless arguments actually give their opponents a boost.

I have a feeling if Stephen Baldwin became the poster boy and public face of the prohibitionists, all drugs would be legalized in a few months!

    I didn’t hear Kudlow or Baldwin answer If they should have gone to prison they just kept dodgeing the question.

    What do you expect from Alec Baldwin’s brother? Didn’t you see Team America? Alec Baldwin is Kim Jong-il’s buddy. He calls him Awec Bahwin. He’s the leader of the Film Actor’s Guild, FAG for short.

    Just so you know, everyone is already stoned out of their minds, and speaking of which, Stephen, you look more stoned than an Asian man right after a fat sticky bowl of natures goodness, brought to you free of charge by lets see… our creator? I don’t know just an idea i thought id toss out there. Man you’re ugly, how the hell did you get to where you are now? I’m curious

    You have to understand the opposition to properly ‘discuss’ things with them. Those of you that are getting all worked up by what he says, look at the bigger picture from his side.

    He, and his brothers, have all had drug and alcohol problems. They’ve all gone through rehab numerous times. I won’t say that their brainwashed, but you could call it that if you wished. You have to reprogram your brain to get over those issues, add in the 12 step ‘god’ aspect of most treatments and you end up with not only a born again christian but someone who is also anti-drug/alcohol. I’ve met my fair share of ‘born again’ christians in my life and they’re bad enough on their own. They’re usually the ones telling you you’ll burn in hell for x inane reason. So really it’s doubly worse.

    We have to understand the other side or we’re just as bad as they are.

    “long list a gaffes and ridiculous statements” uh ok…ever heard of Joe Biden? Baldwin is a douche but at least he is not 1 step from the presidency.

    Baldwin is a jesus freak. Not worth the time to listen to. Anyone who believes in imaginary beings should be locked up and studied. So, like his belief in god is based on made up stuff, so is his belief in prohibition. The guy is a mental midget.

    I could argue and show all the facts with Stephen, but I won’t. Odds are, if you visit this site, you already know.

    I just want to point out one thing though. I, and most all else, don’t want it legalized because I WANT to “smoke it and get high.” I, and most others, want it legal be cause I DO smoke it and get high.

    I think it should be illegal to masturbate! It makes as much sense as prohibition. At least with masturbation being illegal, there is some slim hope douches like Stephen could go to prison for something so harmless as well…as if his slate is so clean as it is.

    Stephen Baldwin is definatly a douche…nice Jesus shirt, you must have missed the first ten minutes of church when they read-
    “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food.”- Genesis 1:29
    Not some.not,just these,not those… It says EVERY. God said.
    you must have also missed-
    “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” George Santayana (1863-1952)

    You Stephen, are a dolt.Stop talking and just walk away, save whatever shred of integrity you have… and let people with brains use their mouths.

    Baldwin: “We keep looking at the past”
    Other Guy “Cause that’s where the facts come from”

    I just about spit my coffee all over my computer!

    Oh the KIDS…. SAVE THE CHILDREN… I find it amusing how he right out of the gate takes away his debating credentials by mocking his counter part….

    Favorite Quotes: “Science says this and that” , “It’s always so funny how we go to history about this and that” “Where are the facts where is the proof”

    He is obviously confused, in a previous interview with Stephen Baldwin he claimed he started in Half Baked… LOL

    He is being paid handsomely by the prohibitionists, and he has accepted this path because he has no other marketable tallents to keep him from living in a box on the street or a camp outside of LA.

    Whats with the host… Talk loud much?

    i just feel sorry for him, it can’t be easy to make a good living when you’re that stupid/uneducated. it’s easy enough to get away with it as a actor but he’s in the real world now and he hasn’t got a scriptwriter to tell him what to say.

    That dude is a total burnout. He’s just trying to milk what’s left of a dismal acting career, by becoming a media whore of the highest order.

    Man, Steven Baldwin is a fucking MORON. You’re right about him being a Palin. Good god, when is humanity ever going to move beyond moronism and stupidity? For fuck’s sake.

    I think the saddest part about this is that there are even more fucking idiots out there who believe the verbal diarrhea that fuckstains like Baldwin spew.

    Pardon my cynicism, but this fucking world sucks.
