These days it appears that almost everything one says or does is going to offend some liberal snowflake that demands what you think, say and do, must conform to what they think is politically correct or they will target you, create an online lynch mob and figuratively hang you from a rope in an attempt to destroy you... not just online, but total and complete destruction of your life and in some cases your career.
I have lost count of how many things offend liberal, social justice warrior snowflakes, from gender specific Happy Meal Toys to the U.S. Constitution, and just about everything in between, to the point where they will even start eating their own by becoming offended over social media posts that are decades old, from other liberals.
GENERATION SNOWFLAKE TARGETS COMEDY
For years comedians, both on the left and the right, have warned that political correctness would kill the art of comedy. Comedy, something that one used to put aside their politic ideological stances to just enjoy a good laugh without thought to political correctness. Now though, comedians have to walk on egg shells before daring to joke about..... well, anything, because it appears that liberals think certain topics are off limits and can never be joked about.
Comedians such as Mel Brooks, Jerry Seinfeld, Gilbert Gottfried, Dennis Miller, Daniel Lawrence Whitney (Larry the Cable Guy), Chris Rock and John Cleese, are all on record criticizing the demand for political correctness in comedy. Whitney saw this problem as far back as 2006, when he stated in a 60 Minutes interview "It's gotten way outta control, you know. I really think that we're at a point in this country where people really need to take the thumb outta their mouth and grow up a little bit and realize there's a lot bigger problems out there than what a comedian did a joke about."
In 2013, a writer by the name of Carl Unegbu even wrote a book titled "Comedy Under Attack: The Golden Age and the Headwinds," which discussed "the challenges facing contemporary stand-up comics from outside forces, such as censorship arising from out of control political correctness and corporate interests......"
The most recent example of comedians under attack is Louis C.K., who dared criticize the loud-mouthed activists from Parkland, Florida, when they became the face of gun control after the high school shooting, where he blasted them and asked why he should have to listen to them.
Cue the liberal outrage.
Before that it was comedian Kevin Hart, not a conservative by a long shot, and who was chosen to host the Oscars, until he was forced to step down amidst liberal outrage after someone decided to dig into his social media account going back nearly a decade, to find "anti-gay" tweets going back to 2009.
Apparently some people have no life and would rather spend their time digging through almost 10 years of tweets just to cause an online outrage mob to terrorize a comedian for old jokes.
It Gets Worse: Now we see , that going back through 10 years of old joking tweets just to try to destroy a comedian, is nothing, as Bustle tops them by going back over two decades in order to proclaim their judgement that certain jokes from the 1989 to 1998 television show 'Seinfeld' are "super offensive now."
Bustle writer Angelica Florio gets up on her high horse and declares "Thanks to more modern understandings of what political correctness entails — and why being PC is important — it's less common these days to find jokes like the offensive ones that often played out on Seinfeld." She then offers what she considers Seinfeld's 13 "worst offenses."
The Soup Nazi offends her snowflake liberal sensibilities because "in 2018 when groups of Neo-Nazis have become noticeably emboldened, using the term "Nazi" to label someone as a joke doesn't sit so well anymore."
The Indian Giver Joke "was never okay — and it's definitely not okay now," because it is a "racial stereotype about an oppressed group."
Other so-called offensive shows include: Kramer Stomping On A Burning Puerto Rican Flag; The 'Joke' That Someone Thinks Jerry And George Are In A Same-Sex Relationship; When Kramer Has Houseguests From Japan Sleep In His Dresser Drawers; When Jerry Accidentally Gets A Man Deported; Cedric And Bob; When George Got Caught Staring At Breasts; 'The Chinese Woman'; The Joke About The 'Pigman'; When George Pursues A Woman Because She Can't Speak English; The Joke About The Handicap Spot, and; The Joke About George's Girlfriend's Big Nose.
The writer embedded each of the segments she criticized, which shows the Seinfeld cast, purposely created as a group of New Yorkers that are obnoxious, rude, narcissistic and clueless, without any political correctness whatsoever, which is what made them making fun of those same types of people so funny back in the 1990s, yet the criticisms leveled against the show now in present day are because they are obnoxious, rude, narcissistic and clueless without any political correctness whatsoever.
Duh, that was the whole point!
Evidently there is not enough happening currently to offend the likes of the Bustle writer, she feels the need to go back two-three decades to find things to be offended about, regarding a show that purposely depicted characters, for comedic purposes, with the personality traits she is now criticizing.
IMAGINE THESE SNOWFLAKES BACK IN THE 1970s
If modern day social warrior liberal snowflakes want to whine about some edgy jokes by comedians, and want to degrade television shows from the 1990s, well, I can only imagine what they would have been like in the 1970s when 'All In The Family' was considered one of the greatest television series of all time. The show ranked #1 in the yearly Nielsen ratings from 1971 to 1976, and became the first television series to reach the milestone of having topped the Nielsen ratings for five consecutive years. (Wiki)
The shows main character Archie Bunker was created as a bigoted, racist jagoff, surrounded by family members that were aghast over his personal opinions, yet viewers understood the comedic nature of spotlighting this character, and laughed them into the top ratings, even during the rerun years.
Here you go liberal snowflakes.... something to really whine about.
In a world of forced political correctness, where bad news seems to be around every corner, the one true bastion of free speech that is left, comedy, where for the time it takes to see a show, is about nothing but laughing, forgetting the problems of the world for just a moment, is about to become the latest victim of the liberal, social justice warrior, intolerant left.
Readers are encouraged to share some of their old favorites, shows, comedy, and music, that "in the day" was considered great, but which today would make the heads of snowflakes explode all across the country! Share them in the comment section below. We will call it a "nostalgia" thread.
Imagine the pertually outraged liberals in this era, and what they would do to some of the classic comedians, such as Don Rickles, who stood upon stages across the globe and made it his lifes work to be as politically "incorrect" as he could be.
