Bill Burr has a habit of pissing off liberals with his comedy. He’s not a conservative, he’s an equal opportunity offender. But when you disagree with anyone on the left in the slightest, like Bill Burr does on occasions, they go bananas.
Now this is not a new bit, but with the new “gun control” push taking place in the country, it’s been trending and making the rounds again. It’s a classic. And the Left is going to hate it…
“I wanna get a gun. I’ve never had the feeling before, until I moved out to Los Angeles. This city just messes with your mind. It’s over populated. It technically doesn’t have a water supply. The dollars’ crashing. The s*** just keeps you up at night. What am I going to do when the zombies come?”
Zombies? In Los Angeles?
Seriously though, he does boil down the gun argument pretty perfectly…
That’s funny though when you talk about getting a gun, you know, people like they’re either totally for it or completely against it, you know they either go nuts and start screaming, all right, well they start throwing up those stats.
You know, actually you increased your chances of getting shot by 80% the second you get a gun on the house. Really, what, cause I am going to load it and shower with it, like – what the fuck, I know it’s dangerous. If you get to pool in your backyard, you immediately increase your odds of drowning in your backyard, right? You couldn’t do that before, now you step on a rake and you go.
No, I am telling you, I don’t buy any of that s***, stats are so f**** stupid. You know, not that they are stupid, it’s the way people apply em, you already have your mind made up and then you go to armright.com, and you start memorizing a bunch of s***, and just [raaaaah] throw it up at people.
True story, AMIRight.com was the original name for Vox.
See this is why leftists like Sarah Silverman and Amy Schumer want censorship in comedy. It’s historically been an art-form with very little barrier to entry. Once Lenny Bruce broke onto the scene, comedy became a tool, a looking glass. It was one of the purest arts that offered an unfiltered, raw voice on culture at large. Traditionally, it’s always leaned to the left. Now a big part of that is that being liberal or progressive was seen as anti-establishment.
But now with a leftist media, entertainment industry and yes, government, bits like this are the true counter-culture. So it’s very telling to see leftists become upset with it, along with their subsequent calls to action for comedians to submit to today’s liberal establishment.
So what’s happening? More comedians are moving to the newest, “pure” form of entertainment. One with an even lesser barrier to entry. The internet.
Oh, by the way, leftists want to control that too.
Sometimes you just can’t win.
