    Actually, no they DON’T sell this crap at Wal Mart. Wally World refuses to sell anything with a “parental advisory” because they don’t think anybody is adult enough to make their own choices as to what’s appropriate for them to listen to or not. What’s hysterical is they sell movies with content ten times worse than the CDs they refuse to sell.

    truthnstuff – how can you say they stopped doing patriotic after Sgt Slaughter if you stopped watching it? Fact of the matter is, if you had been watching it you’d know that they have done patriotic characters since then. Right off the top of my head I can name Kurt Angle and Hulk Hogan. Angle’s character has been patriotic from day one, whether he was a face or a heel and Hogan did a stint in 2003 as a patriotic masked wrestler named Mr. America on Smackdown in 2003. More recently, although not overtly patriotic, John Cena has been openly, and demonstrably supportive of American military troops and their families on WWE programming. And again, although not overtly patriotic, but displaying his patriotism on a regular basis on air, there is John “Bradshaw” Layfield on commentary every week. BTW, try listening to Layfield’s commentary when Colter and Swagger are on. Even he, as a heel commentator, states on his commentary that THEY (the characters) believe in what they’re saying and in America they have the right to speak their views, but HE does NOT agree with them. Do you understand that? WWE has a heel commentator saying on air that the heel characters of Swagger and Colter are wrong. People who watch WWE know this and understand they’re balancing the message on air. What really irks me about this whole affair is people who openly admit they don’t watch WWE, yet seem to “know” so much more about it than WWE fans who do watch it faithfully every week.

    Dontcry, do you see those things supported by ME on this site? No, you don’t. Yes, I hate Obama. No, I don’t hate him because of his race, but because of how he’s destroyed our country. That is exactly why you don’t see me engaging in the behavior you’re talking about.

    Even though you have a valid point about the comments of others here it still doesn’t excuse Glenn for insulting his fans simply because some of us enjoy a different form of entertainment than he does. It’s the same as if I were to insult somebody for being an NFL or NBA fan. Wrestling is a theatrical display, nearly often performed in front of a live audience by very athletic people who can tell a story in ways most of us could never physically do. Being able to appreciate that does not make a wrestling fan stupid.

    And as for “living in reality”, I am very much living in reality. I understand that these men are playing roles in a television program. Those who condemn them for that are the ones not living in reality. They are confusing playing the role with condoning the behavior. If playing a role automatically means you condone the behavior of the character you’re playing then Anthony Hopkins must be one of the worst monsters the world has ever known.

    Sorry, seems my last sentence got cut off…as I was saying, could somebody please explain to me what’s racist about wanting to deport ILLEGAL immigrants? (Yes, the character in his speeches on tv and YouTube has specifically stated ILLEGAL immigrants.)

    I’m severely disappointed in Glenn. Colter was right about something, when Glenn referred to “stupid wrestling people” he was referring to some of his very own fans. I’ve been a wrestling fan my entire life. I’m also a long time fan of Glenn. I once drove two hours just to meet him at a book signing. And now after all the years I’ve supported him he insults me based on my choice of entertainment. Thank you Glenn, I appreciate that.

    As for this whole “tea party” thing, it really kills me that everybody keeps saying these are tea party characters, yet at no point anywhere in this story has anybody ever brought the tea party into it. I’ve heard the argument that they use the Gadsden flag, therefore they must be tea party but that doesn’t wash. The Gadsden flag was used by the Continental Marines during the American Revolutionary war, but I don’t hear anybody calling Swagger or Colter Continental Marines.

    And to show how insane this all really is, have any of you ever heard of Luca Lionello? No? He played Judas in The Passion Of The Christ. Strange, nobody bashes him for playing the “bad guy”. Don’t seem to remember anybody going after Pacino for playing Satan either (The Devil’s Advocate). As Colter said, at least WWE fans can tell the difference between reality and entertainment. It seems to me there’s more than a few people here having trouble doing that.

    Oh, and one more thing…could somebody please explain to me what’s racist about wanting to depo
