Stephen King scares conservative watchdogs (video)

News & Politics

The hysterics at the Media Research Council put out a CyberAlertâ„¢ (boo!) upon watching King's address to the graduates of his alma mater, the University of Maine at Orono. Here's what spooked 'em (video and transcript here): "King urged the graduates to 'give away a dime of every dollar you make,' arguing, to applause," recounts the MRC's Brent Baker, "that 'if everybody did it, maybe we could make Mr. Bush let go of the weapons he loves so well and give back some of the money that he spends on them to the farmers, the unwed mothers and the working poor.'" As yet, no calls for the revocation of his citizenship. Here's another sample from the commie pinko:

"Hug and kiss whoever helped get you - financially, mentally, morally, emotionally - to this day. Parents, mentors, friends, teachers. If you're too uptight to do that, at least do the old handshake thing, but I recommend a hug and a kiss. Don't let the sun go down without saying thank you to someone, and without admitting to yourself that absolutely no one gets this far alone."
