When Comedian Are Prophets
George Carlin gave many truly great performances later in life which served to awaken millions. Some of those performances were loaded with classic quotes that have become extremely popular on the alternative side of the Internet. The previous banner is a perfect example of George’s outstanding and highly relevant wordsmithing.
What has become the stuff of conspiracy theories is the timing and place and way that George Carlin died.
He died as his popularity was rising again. As matter of fact, his political screeds were becoming the hit on the World Wide Web. And then, out of nowhere, he died of heart failure. Here’s an interview he conducted just one week before he passed away. From the looks of it he gave every indication he had another 20 years on stage … at the very least.
“He died on June 22, 2008, at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California, of heart failure. He was 71 years old. His death occurred one week after his last performance at The Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.”

This is why the conspiracy theories won’t quit about his untimely death. TPTB absolutely detest famous people speaking against them and their agenda. They will not tolerate anyone of George Carlin’s stature mouthing off against their System. Doing so poses way too big of a threat to the entire power structure. And nobody skewered them like George did with his ever-spinning verbal rotisserie. TPTB were skewered and broiled by George at the same time.
Here’s another great example of George Carlin’s searing social commentary, especially his laying bare the realities of the American way of life.
The following video is perhaps George Carlin’s greatest performance ever. It took place not long before he
was murdered died. If ever there was a perfect political and social commentary all wrapped up in one comedic tirade, that really gets right to the root of the problems facing America, this one is it.
