We are now in a world where you have to tip toe around every little thing you say. Anyone can take anything you say as offensive. And then you have the potential to have your life ruined. You would think that the first amendment would protect us against such things. But sadly the left is slowly but surely taking this right away from us.
It’s probably no surprise to you by now that our freedom of speech has been tampered with. From the LGBTAAIP… yada yada yada… to the new age feminist running around on campus, you’re no longer able to say what you please. And now this crusade has effected comedians.
Comedians like Owen Benjamin, Dave Chappelle and Bill Burr are just a few of the latest victims of the left. And instead of laughter, we are left with fake apologies and unoriginal material.
The latest target by the PC police is Norm MacDonald. This man has been a no-holds-bar comedian for a few decades now. And that used to be something to cherish. What’s better then a comedian who has the fortitude to confront the uncomfortable in a humorous way? Isn’t that what made a great comedian?
But now it’s no longer acceptable to tell a joke. If you try to put a humorous spin on something uncomfortable, you may find yourself giving a forced apology. Or worse yet, you may not be bookable anymore. Is this really what we want? Do we really want to kill the art of comedy?
Do we really want to take someone, like Norm MacDonald, and silence him forever? Just because he dared to say something slightly positive about Trump, that’s enough to kill his entire career?
The left has done pretty much anything they can think of to stop these people from their livelihood. From blocking Twitter accounts to canceling shows, there is nothing these PC police won’t do to shut you up! But is this what we really want? Do we really want to kill off comedians?
It irks me to think that one day, if this PC insanity continues, we could end up like the North Koreans; forced to laugh at what we’re told is funny. I don’t know about you, but I prefer to laugh freely. And I prefer my comedians to be uninhibited by speech, and say whatever it is they think is funny.
