Media Tries to Corner Jerry Seinfeld Into Apologizing Over Indian Themed Episode...
Leftists are endlessly fond of destroying all happiness the world. Along with the attacks on all semblances of fun, they seem hellbent on destroying comedy (see Legendary Mel Brooks: “Political correctness will be the death of comedy…” and AltLeft Shuts Down Toronto Comedy Show Over Words ‘Free Speech’). Laughter isn't allowed. It's offensive to mute people.
Now SJW's are crying OUTRAGE over a scene from Seinfeld because it featured Native American jokes. The nerve! Hold my scalp.
Of course, now they're trying to make old Jerry feel bad. HuffPo ran a piece with a title suggesting Seinfeld has "admitted" the err of his ways. But... that's not exactly what happened.
Jerry Seinfeld was the star of a late night event at The New Yorker Festival Friday, where New Yorker magazine editor David Remnick asked the comedian about politically incorrect jokes from the show, “Seinfeld.”
Remnick played a clip from the 1993 episode, “The Cigar Store Indian” for Seinfeld and the audience. That episode involves Seinfeld’s character repeatedly offending a Native American woman he’s trying to date. Part of this involves the Seinfeld character gifting a cigar store Indian statue to his friend, Elaine. The Seinfeld character later insinuates the Native American is an “Indian giver,” a derogatory term.
“You could never do that today,” Seinfeld said of the episode to Remnick. According to Deadline, which reported about the event, Remnick asked if not being able to do those kinds of jokes today was a loss to the culture. “One door closes, another opens,” Seinfeld responded. “There’s always a joke, you’ve just got to find it.”
Translation? HuffPo was trying to play off Seinfeld's reply as a "gotcha!" moment. Instead, Seinfeld sounded quite reminiscent of the days where he could just make people laugh without worrying about some redskin's feels. Sorry, Indian? Native American. No, it's definitely indigenous peoples.
Jerry was simply pointing out the facts, sans apology, like he tends to do (see Jerry Seinfeld Claims Liberal Colleges are Killing Comedy Because...). He couldn't get away with making such comedy today because leftists would find it offensive. Hence how they're digging up a 20-year-old episode now.
Speaking of the facts. You want facts? We have facts. Put two and two together and watch below.
