Comedians, as a practice, are comedic. They tell jokes. It’s their craft. Some may argue their whole career. In 24 hours, the left has decided quite deliberately in my opinion, to find every single joke uttered by comedian Norm Macdonald, “offensive.”
Macdonald: Oh, did they? Well, those women should get their money back, because I know it was a surprise set. I wasn’t there, but everything I heard about it was that he did very well. But if some women were upset, the Comedy Cellar should give them their money back and $200 each.
Macdonald: $200.I think they could get through the trauma if they were paid $200 and could buy some nice shoes.
Note the byline, a woman be writing this post. A woman who loves shoes. Show of hands to the ladies in the audience: what lady doesn’t like shoes? Tweet me or leave a comment. Because I don’t know of too many ladies who are hashtag anti-shoe.
Second point: it’s a joke. A stereotypical joke, yes. But stereotypical jokes are funny because often stereotypes are true. In this case, women like to buy shoes. Prada, Paul Green and Manolo Blahnik were unavailable for comment, due to selling ladies shoes.
Besides, even if you’re a lady who doesn’t love shoes, you probably know of ladies who love shoes. The point is still it’s a joke. People need to lighten the hell up.
But wait it gets even dumber. Because Norm Macdonald made another joke on a separate appearance. He’s really burning up the comedy circuit lately. He said the following in defense of his original defense of Roseanne:
“You’d have to have Down Syndrome to not feel sorry for— #MeToo is what you want for your daughters and you want that to be the future world, of course. And I meet all kinds of women with terrible stories of what’s happened to them. So, I wasn’t talking about the victims. They asked me about Roseanne.”
How dare Norm Macdonald say you have to have Down syndrome not to feel sorry for victims of #MeToo. Because obviously he’s marginalizing a group of people the left is fine with aborting in the womb. Here’s looking at you, Iceland.
Also, and send me your hate tweets, are we telling people with Down syndrome about the #MeToo movement? I ask only because people with Down syndrome, while absolutely deserving of life, respect, and human dignity, are at a bit of a learning disadvantage due to having Down syndrome. I know that’s politically incorrect to say. But Down syndrome is a syndrome for a reason. It has complications.
Norm Macdonald made a joke. You’re free to hate it. You’re free to love it. But it is still a joke. The liberal media, who is fine with aborting Down syndrome people womb-side, is choosing to find offense over a comedian comparing people who found his comments on #MeToo, to a Down syndrome mental comprehension level.
There’s an Inception joke here, I just know it. If only it came to me sooner.
We’re reaching terminal levels of stupidity for stupidity’s sake. Obtuseness for obtuseness’s sake. We cannot survive as a society when people are being purposefully ignorant for the sake of a narrative. In this case, that Norm Macdonald has a show (e-i-e-i-o) where he refuses to talk politics. That’s what got alllllllll of this started. Media has Norm Macdonald in their sights because he doesn’t want to bash Trump.
Let that sink in.
