Leo Laporte: Racist for Life

Leo Laporte’s “Gradient” of Blackness (IEEE 205-2001)

In what can only be considered an early Christmas present, Leo Laporte had the opportunity to double down on racism this week when both Owen JJ Stone (Patreon link) and Ant Pruitt (Patreon link) appeared on the number one racist show on the TWiT network, This Week In Tech.

Leo Laporte has made an illustrious career of spewing casual racist remarks. If there was a Pulitzer prize for racism, Leo Laporte would have won 10 of them by now. Some of Leo’s highlights include:

Self-explanatory

Well as luck would have it, there were 2 “nigras” on Skype this week so Leo Laporte simply couldn’t resist this amazing opportunity to say more racist shit and try to pass it off as a joke. Leo Laporte’s #1 bootlicker Mike_B must have taken the night off as there seemed to be nobody trying to stop him this time. Video is above, you ungrateful bastards.

  1. I don’t even understand a little bit how his little pretend empire has not imploded and taken him with it. I gave up on the whole network of shows but SN about 5 years ago and then when the JCD BS happened, I had to drop even SN.

    I keep coming here for the inevitable crash and entertainment from it but somehow, he just keeps on going like a cockroach…

    I also don’t understand why people like OD still go on that show. I like Owen but damn man… There are better things to do with you time…

  2. Owen appears because Twit LLC pays its guests. That’s it. He was clearly uncomfortable at the cluelessness and carelessness from Leo. The “black-to-really-white” bit doesn’t bother me, but his insensitivity to the others was unforgivable.

    1. Though the carousel of guests for TWiT has massively declined with the same faces showing up week on week and many times it will consist of Elgum, the Priest and other close friends or employee’s. Everyone else has been alienated or been turned into offsite producers.

  3. I’m sure the last thing the guests would want when coming on a tech show is to be called dark. How much are they getting paid to stand there and take it?

  4. And once again. He know’s he’s being watched. He knows it will be clipped and hosted. And here we are.

    This was one of the most extreme facepalm moments I’ve seen from him yet. Most folks can pick up when what they consider a joke hasn’t gone over well, and they’ll quickly move on. Not Leo though. He’ll stick with it to achieve maximum handprint on the face.

    It reminds me of when I used to watch, and he’d start WW. He would open with Paul’s old Delphi book and carry on about it. After several times of this, you could tell from Paul’s face that he was tired of it and it was time to give it a rest. Nope. One time I thought Paul was actually going to call him out and say enough with the stupid book. He contained himself. I think he spoke offline about it because I think it finally stopped shortly after that.

  5. “The time he failed to identify Katie Benner because all Asian people look the same to him”

    And white people all look the same to asians. It’s biological. Differentiating is a thing that is learned. Why don’t you get pissy about things that matters instead?

      If he was a trump supporter instead of a pussy ass Hillary supporter I would still watch twit

      ???? Oh my, a comment from someone who actually drinks the Leo Kool-Aid and believes what Leo says as opposed to just picking up on all the obvious clues to the real Leo. Sure, he likes to put on he’s got some kind of background from the liberal hippie culture but reality always slips out when he’s just babbling. His life is all about reinforcing his bubble of entitlement, a sexist, bigot pig that enjoys a completely consumerist, ‘be wary of government’ Libertarian, class-based lifestyle. A leftist democratic socialist or even a centrist Hillary advocate? Not hardly.

  6. Remember when Leo and Amber were bosom buds?? They were falling all over Obama. Greatest thing since Marx. His FWB, Lisa is fairly republican , so I’m sure Leo is conflicted every time she climbs on top and rides the Leo micro penis…

  7. How the hell is Owen JJ stone even anywhere a tech journalist? Doesn’t write or do anything with tech except some BS consulting right? His uncle Leo comments are old and never listen when he is on.

    1. I enjoy Oh Doctah’s appearances on TWiT, but it’s clear that he’s one of the great BS artists of the Internet age.

      What and or who is he consulting? He glommed onto Kevin Rose and suddenly his analysis is deemed valuable? Leo likes him simply because he’s a black man that allows him to check off a diversity box when confronted about how white his network is.

      Not knowing squat about either Stone or Pruitt, I assumed when I check both both their Patreon pages that each would have at least 50 patrons and probably a lot more than that.. but I was wrong!! Between them they have only ten (10)!! And Stone, after being on Twitter ten years and tweeting out 38,500 times just has 11,000 followers & 2880 likes. In addition, he has 357 YouTube subscribers, and 156 Facebook followers. I expected much higher numbers. Maybe part of Stone’s problem is he has an identity crisis as he goes by three different names/handles/nom de plume (Stone, OhDoctah and IQMZ). Gotta believe Stone and Pruitt are on TWiT for the publicity which probably means they are willing to take some Uncle Leo abuse just to get any followers they can.

      Probably to Leo, Stone and Pruitt are as much “tech pundits” as Brian Brushwood was during the first couple of years of the TWiT Brick House when apparently Leo insisted every guest be live in studio and Brushwood became the designated guest to fill out any non-full panel as he seemingly appear everywhere as a “tech expert”. Brian is currently #11 (not counting Leo) in number of appearances on TWiT (Christina Warren and Jason Hiner probably will blow by Shwood by next year) with OhDoctah tied for 15th place in appearances.

        So basically he is a no one with a side consulting gig. Lol

        Yeah agree but oh doctah or whatever he is going by is just a consumer at best, not a journalist.

        Leo gets his token black guy and makes his sponsors happy.

    1. Yes

      Ben:
      Leo, this blog is very strange– trying to contact you! Are these you fans?

      Yes, we are his biggest fans! It is tough love, we just want him to be his best <3

      We have been supporting him since the day we learned he had contacted HIV and needed our support 🙁

    2. Maybe you should try tweeting him,. Oh you can’t he’s quit all social media and cancelled phone service. Says he’s tired of talking to the real world and he looked strange walking into a soup kitchen with multiple thousand dollar smartphones in hand asking for the free soup of the day…

  8. Did Leo Laporte Sell off Twit? Havn’t seen him on any shows…?

    I’m interest in a chunk… can start my shitty social media spam, like I pioneered in the ’00’s Good ‘ole mind numbing junk content.

  9. Who is hosting Security Now?

    I kinda liked that show but when Leo started blabbing about some security issue of a Bluetooth dildo that he had used, I was done.

    Is SQRL or Spinrite 6.5, or whatever it was supposed to be, done yet?

  10. Hmmm 404 I don’t want Leo’s Salad… That’s not mayo…..

  11. Anyone else notice that Leo deleted all of his social media accounts? No Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.

    Is this another protest that’ll last all of 3 weeks or did something go down?

    1. Yeah, I believe he did keep his Google Plus account but the only persons that still uses that is Mike Elgan and Jeff Jarvis, a yellow journalist and a fake professor who teaches yellow journalism.

      It also coincides that that his Sunday guests consist of the same rotation of guests., sycophants, ex-employees and employee’s (forced under contract of employment) appearing.

    2. It’s not a protest. He’s facing criminal charges in a sex assault case so he had to try to delete the evidence. It’s what all the politicians are doing now, so maybe he thinks it will work for him too.

    3. Protest? Leo? He’s not that committed to anything except vacation planning (and then following through on the plan) and keeping track of all the local joints that serve good soup (when he’s not away on vacation).
      Never even thought his social media drop-outs were about actual protest and/or taking a consistent stand on any issue, it was always so he could use that as some sort of attention grabbing PR stunt. His usual pattern has been to 1) spout faked outrage, 2) make all kinds of hoopla about suspending his social media account, and then 3) a few weeks later re-activate his account based on some dumb-ass reason or otherwise fabricated excuse.

      1. I would add 4) Constantly snipe at celebrities who have far more social media followers than he does, as if he’s dispensing pearls of wisdom while some Kardashian is offering material of lesser quality.

      1. First off, let me suck on them toes, baby!

        Second, I agree. Sarah got a pass because she was quirky and attractive, but the truth is she wasn’t that talented. She mailed in a lot of her hosing duties on TWiT and the network hasn’t suffered since she left.

        Tom Merritt is another story…

    1. Steve had better get to work in the bedroom then, at the current rate of progress version 7 will be written by his grandchildren.

      You just know a guy is leading a life that is just a tiny bit TOO comfortable when he’s willing to BS (and downright troll) his paying customers for over a decade while indulging open source flights of fancy that offer nothing exept personal glory.

  12. It’s obvious you have given Leo the thrashing he has well deserved. It’s over, It’s time to remind Leo that when he takes something he will not always get away with it. Remind him what it was. Let him die in peace.

  13. Wow… I don’t know what I’ve stumbled into here. This website appears to be a nesting ground for a strange subset of SJW that really doesn’t like Leo Laporte for some reason. Interesting. Can’t say I’ll ever be back, but gosh was it ever a fun visit. Feels like that one time I went to California.

  14. I can’t believe no one caught what happened on Sunday’s show.
    Leo actually fucked a turtle live on the web. That’s right, full on turtle fucking right there in front of me. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, later in the show he picked up the turtle and took a bite out of thinking it a hard roll roast beef sandwich with extra mayo.
    Oh the turtanity!
