Old George Carlin Clip About War Going Viral Again Because It’s Sadly Still Relevant

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar pulled up a 2:20-minute George Carlin bit from 1992 that—28 years later—is more relevant than ever.

In his stand-up bit, Carlin says:

“That’s our new job in the world: bombing brown people. Iraq, Panama, Grenada, Libya, you got some brown people in your country, tell them to watch the f—k out or we’ll goddamn bomb them! Well when’s the last white people you can remember that we bombed? Can you remember the last white—can you remember ANY white people we’ve ever bombed? The Germans, those are the only ones and that’s only because they were trying to cut in on our action. They wanted to dominate the world! Bullsh—t! That’s our f—ing job!”

Omar’s tweet with Carlin’s bit is a response to President Donald Trump’s recent actions. On Jan. 2, the United States Pentagon announced Iranian General Qassem Soleimani was killed in an airstrike. Trump then tweeted a threat targeting Iranian cultural sites.

President Trump’s actions immediately put the world on edge, especially Iranian and American civilians.

Hours after Congresswoman Omar tweeted the Carlin clip, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced that the house will introduce “War Power Resolution,” which is aimed at restricting President Trump’s military actions.

The resolution will be led by Rep. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan and “reasserts Congress’s long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further Congressional action is taken, the Administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran cease within 30 days.”
