Watch: SNL embarrasses itself with "comedy" sketch on antisemitism hearings (though Harvard's actual non-response is worse)
SNL had a dilemma this week. The news dropped a goldmine on their lap with near universally despised villains. The rub is those villains were progressive, and acknowledging they were bad would go against the narrative. So the former comedy show did that exact thing you would expect them to do. Make the Republican the enemy.
This is why people needed to dial back the praise of that lazy "men competing against women" sketch.
Where SNL found the comedy was NOT in elite university presidents claiming that calling for Jewish genocide was protected under the First Amendment when they believe almost nothing else is (misgendering someone, whatever the hell "fatphobia" is, having a single viewpoint to the right of Rep. AOC, etc). The comedy was in how they did such a bad job, they made Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik likable and gave her a win.
THAT, to SNL, was more offensive. If my brief description doesn't accurately portray how horrible this cold open was, the near-universal silence of the live studio audience will.
"Is calling for the genocide of Jews against the code of conduct for Harvard?! Keep in mind, if you don’t say yes, you’re going to make me look good — which is really, really hard to do.”
While this sketch wasn't even ironically funny, Harvard's actual response comes closer to unintentional comedy. PENN President Liz Magill had been wished well on her future endeavors after her attempt at an apology didn't work. There is a debate about what to do with Harvard President Claudine Gay.
On one hand, she embarrassed the University, and there are calls for her to be fired by prominent voices. On the other hand, firing her would give Republicans a win. Remember, the bad guys are NOT the ones who don't believe in Free Speech in any other circumstances outside of that speech causing Jewish students to be afraid to leave their dorm rooms. The bad guy is the GOP congresswoman who asked them a question about it.
“People familiar with the closed-door debate over Dr. Gay’s future also said there was a tension between what some people on the Corporation board view as her mishandling of the questions and a desire not to allow Ms. Stefanik and other critics to force an ouster on the board,” they add.
On an unrelated note, the people supporting Harvard during this difficult time of Republicans seizing also support the government paying off the student loans of people going to Harvard.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
