Sarah Silverman Caves to PC Speech Police - "Change with the times..."
A lot has been made about comedians not wanting to play colleges because it's not worth the hassle of dealing with wimpy, politically correct students who find everything offensive. SJWs are why we can't have nice (or funny) things anymore. Most comedians err on the side of the 1st amendment. Though of course not all (as seen in the latest "Louder With Crowder" podcast )
Thankfully for the thought police, they have Sarah Silverman...
“But, I do think it’s important, as a comedian, as a human, to change with the times. I think it’s a sign of being old if you’re put off by that. It’s not hard to change with the times, and I think it’s important,” she continued. “And when you have new information and when you become more aware of the world around you, you can change.”
The problem is that the people making the "new rules" arbitrarily decide what is acceptable and not acceptable based on how they can politically divide people in order to play them off each other. You won't know what's "offensive" until someone randomly claims to be offensive.
Even worse, Sarah Silverman made her living deliberately being as offensive as possible. She was the quintessential "shock comic." From joking about "pregnant children, starving in Africa" to her show "Jesus is magic," controversy is how Silverman made her bones. But I suppose what's good for her, is not for you.
But that quote isn't even the dumbest thing Sarah Silverman said said.
“You have to listen to the college-aged, because they lead the revolution. They’re pretty much always on the right side of history.”
Yeah, no. I've met too many college kids. The college hippies in the 60's were just as wrong as the SJW hipsters of today. Surprisingly, compare that to what President Obama - yes, THAT President Obama - had to say...
"I've heard of some college campuses where they don’t want to have a guest speaker who is too conservative. Or they don’t want to read a book if it has language that is offensive to African-Americans, or somehow sends a demeaning signal towards women. I’ve got to tell you, I don’t agree with that either. I don’t agree that you, when you become students at colleges, have to be coddled and protected from different points of views."
Yes, the President is right.
Excuse me while I find a salve to soothe my aching buttocks after that flock of pigs just flew out of it.
