Fuggedaboutit! “The Sopranos”' Vincent Curatola wonders if “book burning” is coming soon

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor

The same liberals who praise The Sopranos as the greatest television show in history were strangely silent when an actor on the series recently said something politically incorrect about… political correctness.

In an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily show, host Alex Marlow asked actor Vincent Curatola (who played Johnny “Sack” Sacramoni on the HBO series) if The Sopranos could be made today (a mere 20 years after it premiered.)

Curatola replied:

“I’m glad you mentioned that, because my wife said something like that to me a couple of weeks ago. We were at the reunion in Manhattan as the School of Visual Arts Theater with David Chase. It was a panel discussion,” Curatola said. “She said to me, ‘You think they would put [The Sopranos] on the air today?’ And I said, ‘Who cares?’ I said, ‘It is what it is. That’s the lifestyle. These guys make jokes. They say this. They do that.’”

Have we gotten to the point where we’re going to start banning books, now? Or we’re going to start to burn them in the town square, because something may be offensive? And I’ll tell you something else. Why in God’s name would any of those characters even think about wanting to be politically correct?” Curatola considered. “They say, ‘Hey, I make money. I say what I want to say when I say it and to whom I wish to say it.’ You know, there’s an arrogance there that you cannot cover up with touchy-feely writing.”

Remember the days when Huck Fin was acceptable reading? Remember when complimenting a man or woman on their appearance was acceptable? Remember when having a discussion of opposing views was acceptable? Remember when speaking one’s mind was acceptable, or having your own opinion was acceptable?

Remember Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451? The Social Justice Warriers don’t, but want to do their own version of the Firemen.

Is it really Social Justice Warriors or rather Social Justice Worriers?

Do these SJW folks realize that Adolf Hitler’s Nazis burned books and policed which movies the people could see? If they want to be like that, they’re welcome to move to Cuba or North Korea. Venezuela is out of the question now since there was an outbreak of common sense there among the people.
