Former “Man Show” host laments the dismantling of America’s meritocracy
Don't expect Adam Carolla to join Jackson Browne down at Zuccotti Park anytime soon.
The former "Man Show" host had a fiery little sit-down with conservative organization Media Research Center recently, unloading on the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Lamenting that the top 1 percent of earners in the country — reviled as the enemy by the OWS crowd — are already carrying more than their share of the financial burden in this country, Carolla went on a tirade about the mentality that he sees driving the Occupy movement, seething, "We've created a bunch of f—ing self-entitled monsters."
As Carolla sees it, the seeds of self-entitlement were planted decades ago, as parents began to coddle their children instead of emphasizing a merit-based system.
"There's something that's come up in this country that didn't used to exist, which is envy. And it's a big issue," Carolla posited. "We're now dealing with the first wave of participation trophy, my own fecal matter doesn't stink, empowered, I feel so f—ing good about myself, everyone's a winner, there's no losers … we're dealing with the first wave of those f—ing assholes."
Carolla isn't alone in his disdain for the Occupy movement — earlier this month, graphic novelist Frank Miller likened the OWS protestors to "rapists," warning, "These clowns can do nothing but harm America."
