A George Carlin Tribute: "7 Words You Can Never Say On Television" …But That Are Used By the Nutroots. A Lot

Comedian George Carlin, whose routine “Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television” led to a key Supreme Court ruling on obscenity, died Sunday at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica.

In a fitting tribute to Carlin, I am reposting this earlier blogpost first seen at the NewsBuckit:

“Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television…” But, That Are Used By the Left, a Lot.

With the latest profanity accusations by Bill O’Reilly hurled at the premier democratic blog Daily Kos and the latest excuses by Daily Kos apologists who defend their God-given right to post profanity and hate speech…

I thought it was time to dust off the infamous “7 Words Study” comparing language on the right side of the blogosohere with the language frequently used on the left side of the blogosphere.

This is what happened when the students at News Buckit compared nutroots profanity with profanity on the right.

And this is what I found, using what I deemed — through a mix of TTLB and 2006’s Weblog Award lists — to be the 18 biggest Lefty blogs, and 22 biggest Righty blogs. (Not counting this one. :)) I couldn’t account for the 6-month time period, and I even gave the Lefty blogs a 4 blog advantage. But it didn’t make much of a difference.

So how much more does the Left use Carlin’s “seven words” versus the Right? According to my calculations, try somewhere in the range of 18-to-1.

Of course, this does not take into consideration the extensive amount of anti-military, anti-Christian, anti-Semitic or anti-American postings on the Left.

It does compare the frequency of use of the “7 Dirty Words” by nutroots compared to those on the right.

Here are the data tables

Again- feel free to go to The NewsBuckit to get the complete results.

So… The next time you hear a Nutroots blogger compare the profanity or hate speech on the two sides of the blogosphere, just remember… 18 to 1!!

“Seven words you can never say on television”… but which are said on the Internet. A lot.
Nutroot’s Profanity Exceeds Right Wing Profanity— 18 to 1!
