New Movie Asks: Can We Take a Joke?
SJW leftists are doing everything in their power to kill comedy. If you don't believe me, believe Bill Maher, Jerry Seinfeld, and countless others who've run afoul of leftists lately. Now there's a new movie that asks, 'Can We Take a Joke?'
I mean, WE can. But maybe not the people who they're talking about in this trailer...
Can't wait for this one. I'm as excited as this chick.
Dang, that broad loves her saxophone. Her passion is intoxicating. The trailer description is below:
In the age of social media, nearly every day brings a new eruption of outrage. While people have always found something to be offended by, their ability to organize a groundswell of opposition to – and public censure of – their offender has never been more powerful. Today we’re all one clumsy joke away from public ruin. Can We Take A Joke? offers a thought-provoking and wry exploration of outrage culture through the lens of stand-up comedy, with notables like Gilbert Gottfried, Penn Jillette, Lisa Lampanelli, and Adam Carolla detailing its stifling impact on comedy and the exchange of ideas. What will the future will be like if we can’t learn how to take a joke?
The future is here. The First Amendment is under attack, and it's real. It's also why conservatives or "Christians" need to make sure they don't play the "offended" card when it's convenient for them. Nothing bothers me more than someone feigning disgust at the perpetually outraged left, only to be triggered by an anti-Trump comment moments later.
Wait, strike that. The only thing that bothers me more are comedians like Sarah Silverman who've made their millions off of shock-comedy and then subsequently attempting to socially engineer the next generation with what they can and can't say (read "Sarah Silverman Now Demands 'Offensive' Comics Change with the Times" here).
Wait, strike that. The only thing that bothers me more is HIV.
Back to my point. It's either free speech for all... or it isn't free speech at all. There is no middle ground. At all. Period. End of story. I hope I've crystallized my thoughts for you. The fact that this film centers around comedy is particularly interesting, because it's often seen as the last front for freedom of speech. Unfortunately, as I know all too well, even live stand-up has become the target of professional protesters and triggered leftists everywhere. Here's a video of me going nuclear on them.
