Taste the diffidence
Oh no, you're sadly mistaken...he's always tongue in cheek when talking about the slaughter of animals because he finds the subject highly amusing! Remember the time he hysterically compared the slaughter of chickens by KFC to the shootings in Norway? What a hoot that was! Don't you realize he's nothing but a campy queen 24/7...one Paul Lynde and Charles Nelson Riley can be proud of.
True! How could I forget?
But surely there was one time when some responsible party or other sat him down, slapped him with a wet dishrag, and demanded he speak his mind. You know, not in the heat of the moment. Not posturing for journalists. Not trying to score points for one of his "pet" causes.
Surely someone, at some point, confronted him about his rhetoric. Not Paul Lynde or Charles Nelson Riley, maybe. But someone. A fan, maybe. An agent. A family member. Somebody who cared. Somebody who said, "Why don't you just drop the rhetoric for once and say what you really think, so people know?"
I wonder if that occurred?
