“The Guineas Show” is Now Banned on Youtube
Thanks to the vigilant opposition of Italian American groups like the Sons of Italy and the Italian American Civil Right League, the disgraceful and stereotypical “The Guineas Show” has been removed from Youtube. This was after the show had already been removed from Blip TV.
You would think that this last blow to the producers of “The Guineas Show” would make them quit, but that seems not to be the case. In answer to the outrage displayed by Italian Americans throughout America, the producers of “The Guineas Show” agreed to appear on a left-wing progressive radio show called “The Steve Gelder Show” to state their case why “The Guineas Show” is not offensive to Italian Americans.
After the producers, Ray St. Clair and Debra Scotti (whom I will forever refer to as “Dumb” and “Dumber”) said they were Italian Americans themselves and in no way found the terms “Guineas” offensive, they launched into a diatribe stating that “Guinea” was no more an offensive than the term “Guidos,” which is constantly mentioned on the TV program “Jersey Shore.”
I’ve never watched “The Jersey Shore” and have only heard bad things about the show, but in my opinion, the word “Guidos” is not as offensive as “Guinea.” But even if it was, you should never justify your bad behavior by pointing to the bad behavior of others.
Then Dumb and Dumber said things on the radio show that were downright absurd. They pointed out the fact that the name “Guinea” is a legitimate surname, and that millions of people have the last name “Guinea.” But they conveniently forgot to mention that the last name “Guinea”, in fact, originated in the country of Guinea, and the surname has no connection to Italians except as a slur.
The rest of the radio show (as far as I got) was one nonsensical comment after another by Dumb and Dumber, and everything they said was backed up by Gelder, who should also be ashamed of himself for defending the indefensible. Gelder said an Italian American group representative at first agreed to appear on this show, but at the last minute pulled out and sent a letter by the group’s lawyer instead.
I applaud this Italian American group and their lawyer for not lowering themselves to appear on a radio program where they would have to verbally combat people who are either oblivious to the fact they are incorrigibly wrong, or who know they are wrong, and want to figuratively spit in the face of people who represent the very Italian Americans whom they have slandered.
The fact is, we won, and they lost. Their horrible show has been banned from Blip TV and now from Youtube. So there’s nothing else to gain by engaging lowlifes who have nothing more to lose. This confirms the old saying, “Quit while you’re ahead,” and Italian Americans are certainly ahead of the game concerning the banning of “The Guineas Show,” if they have not already earned an outright slam-dunk victory.
Dumb and Dumber also had the nerve to send me the link to the radio program, as if to say, “Here, see not everyone thinks ‘Guinea’ is an offensive term.”
I was so angry at their impertinence, I wanted to send them a pointed email, but I decided not to. After all, we are the winners and they are the losers, so what’s the point?
However, where there’s money to be made certain people would make a pact with the Devil to do so. As a result, there’s a good chance Dumb and Dumber will continue to try to market their repulsive show.
D & D – go ahead and make our day. In case you haven’t noticed, we are all watching.
