Blue Checkmark Feminist: Blame Racism on Eric Cartman and Michael Scott
Our country faces serious issues, requiring serious conversations. We find ourselves discussing ugliness of antisemitism and dialing down the rhetoric we use against each other. Super serious issues for super serious people. Which is why I spit coffee at my MacBook when I read a tweet blaming racism on Michael Scott and Eric Cartman. Yes, the Dunder Mifflin idiot and a cartoon.
Steve Carell has commented the audience of 2018 may take Michael Scott too seriously. The above kind of proves that point. Thankfully, the guys from South Park still have their sense of humor which they refuse to temper. The people responsible for last week's terrorist acts probably have no idea what this idiotic woman is talking about. Generally speaking people don't take cues from cartoons. And if they do, not much we can do to fix the stupid rattling around in their mostly empty noggins.
@DiscordianKitty's tweetstorm is nothing you haven't heard from a blue-haired leftist before. I don't know what annoys me most: that she can't tell the difference between actual racism and a fictional sitcom that pokes fun at stereotypes; or she thinks the rest of us are too stupid to do so. Laughing at each other's stereotypes and joking with each other doesn't cause racism. If anything, it helps prevent it. Try hating someone who shares your sense of humor. Cartman doesn't inspire racism any more than he inspires the fat pride movement.
If we're being honest about Michael Scott, his "racism" came from him trying too hard to impress people with his wokeness. Like Hillary Clinton and the bottle of hot sauce she stashes in her bag.
HE'S. A. CARTOON!
This country faces serious issues that require serious conversations about serious people. if you're blaming a cartoon and the most popular TV show on Netflix, you don't have what it takes to get a seat at the table.
