Nancy Grace, Asshole of the Day for January 19, 2014
Today President Obama said “I don’t think [pot] is more dangerous than alcohol.” He went on to say that:"Middle-class kids don’t get locked up for smoking pot, and poor kids do," he said. "And African-American kids and Latino kids are more likely to be poor and less likely to have the resources and the support to avoid unduly harsh penalties."
So when Nancy Grace starts ranting about “people on pot that shoot each other, that stab each other, that strangle each other, that kill whole families — wipe out a whole family”, it’s hard not to hear her spewing lies to support a system and lies that incarcerate minorities. Take a look at this in context:
Sensing an opportunity, Grace responded, “in a nutshell, could you say why you think marijuana should be legalized — because, I mean, you know it’s addictive, highly addictive.”
Tvert replied that “marijuana’s addictive properties have been found to be actually pretty mild compared to alcohol and tobacco, and even caffeine.”
“So you — you are admitting it is addictive,” Grace interjected.
“Yes,” Tvert replied, “so is sex, so are video games.”
“So you’re admitting it! You’re admitting it!”
After Tvert calmed Grace down by pointing out that many recreational users are “normal people, just like you, who enjoy using marijuana for the same reason people enjoy having a drink after work,” Grace again interrupted him.
“The reason I’m against legalization is that I’ve seen too many felonies — felonies — and I don’t mean pot sales or growing pot,” she continued. “I mean people on pot that shoot each other, that stab each other, that strangle each other, that kill whole families — wipe out a whole family.”
Her guest tries to lead her away from this crazy talk, but of course Nancy Grace didn’t get to be Nancy Grace by listening to other people. Nope, she just keeps going. And, as I said earlier, given that what she’s saying is NOT TRUE, that pot doesn’t make people more violent, and that she has a responsibility to know what the fuck she’s talking about, she might as well have said:
“The reason I’m against legalization is that I’ve seen too many felonies — felonies — and I don’t mean pot sales or growing pot,” she continued. “I mean
people on potblack people that shoot each other, that stab each other, that strangle each other, that kill whole families — wipe out a whole family.”
Or, instead of being racist, maybe she’s just a huge pothead, since we know that paranoia is one of the actual side effects of too much pot smoking. But whether racist or a closet stoner, I think we can all agree that this outburst makes Nancy Grace the Asshole of the Day.
It is Nancy Grace’s first time as Asshole of the Day.
