Bush meets with anti-gay censor

Guardian Unlimited | Arts features | ‘We have to protect people’

What should we do with US classics like Cat on a Hot Tin Roof or The Color Purple? “Dig a hole,” Gerald Allen recommends, “and dump them in it.” Don’t laugh. Gerald Allen’s book-burying opinions are not a joke.

Earlier this week, Allen got a call from Washington. He will be meeting with President Bush on Monday. I asked him if this was his first invitation to the White House. “Oh no,” he laughs. “It’s my fifth meeting with Mr Bush.”

So this is how Mr. Bush is exercising his “clear mandate” from the American people. Fuck you, America.

  1. “it’s not censorship”, Allen hastens to explain. “For instance, there’s a reason for stop lights. You’re driving a vehicle, you see that stop light, and I hope you stop.”


    (Would that I had something more intelligent or literate to respond with, but that really does seem to sum it up.)

  2. But will they allow Williams’ Suddenly Last Summer since the gay character is never seen but we’re told he’s brutally killed? Surely that message is ok. [switching from sarcasm to out-and-out anger] These people just fucking suck.
