    Clint Eastwood on That Generation

    By Kyle | January 6, 2009

    Clint said it, not me, in Esquire:

    We live in more of a pussy generation now, where everybody’s become used to saying, “Well, how do we handle it psychologically?” In those days, you just punched the bully back and duked it out. Even if the guy was older and could push you around, at least you were respected for fighting back, and you’d be left alone from then on.

    (H/t John Nolte.)
    What’s strange about this quotation is it takes a very different tone from the softer and less flinty-eyed Clint who spoke at last fall’s New Yorker festival, at which he disparaged the “fantasy cowboys” and “fantasy detectives” he played as more or less meaningless jobs he did for a paycheck, and also made fun of “Dirty Harry” fans. Could it be that Clint is skilled at playing to his audience?

      Clint Eastwood is a Gemini, as am I, and like our fellow Geminian, Walt Whitman, he contradicts himself because he contains multitudes.

      Multitudes of dumbasses in your case, Hunter.

      “Hunter Tremayne” is into astrology? Awesome!

      I’ve grown tired of our generation getting dumped on, and for that matter hearing about the “greatest generation.” Maybe Clint hangs out with the same pussies Brokaw does.

      Every generation rises to the occasion when it has to. I doubt Clint would call the firefighers who charged into the WTC on 9/11 — about 350 of whom sacrificed their lives — pussies. Nor would he call pussies, the brave people who fight for our country around the world, nor teachers who work in delapidated schools for poverty wages, nor doctors and social workers who labor in overrun inner-city hospitals. Our generation is not more or less a collection of “pussies” than any other.

      Who cares what this guy says? He’s just an actor, for heaven’s sake. He was just pretending to be a hard guy in those movies.
