“An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.” – The Ayatollah Khomeini
“Comedy in our progressive society today can no longer afford to be crass, or provocative for the sake of being offensive. Sexist humor and racist humor can no longer exist in comedy because these concepts are based on archaic ideals that have perpetrated injustice against minorities in the past. Provocative humor, such as ones dealing with topics of race and gender politics, can be crass and vulgar, but underlying it must be a context that spurs social dialogue about these respective issues.” – A college SJW
Jerry Seinfeld, a stand-up comedian who had a popular situation comedy on American television in the 1990s, recently lamented that colleges are no longer desirable places for comedians to perform because of Social Justice Warriors parsing every joke, every line, every gesture for something to take offense it. Being offended at something, in progressive culture, is a means of claiming status over those who are not offended by it. Mr. Seinfeld was attacked by the progressive left because progressive leftists have zero tolerance for truths that don’t fit into their narrative.
While Caitlyn was still a man named Bruce, Stewie Griffin once called Jenner a woman, “an elegant, beautiful, Dutch woman.” In another clip, the show made a more blatant point when they showed Jenner dancing provocatively for a group of sailors with a pink boa.
When asked about the transgender issues and their relevance to the clips, MacFarlane refrained, saying that he was “too savvy to comment on the issue to the media.” MacFarlane elaborated that he would be happy to discuss the issue after the outrage passes, but for now, he said that his words could and would be used against him. “Even though I’m on the side of support, you just got to play it safe because the climate is just too charged.
“Once the outrage industry shuts down, I will be happy to have an adult conversation about all of this stuff anytime anyone wants…”
And yet none of these leftist comedians acknowledge that it is their own progressive leftist comrades who built the PC Tyranny they are complaining about. They didn’t speak out when the left decided that speech they didn’t agree with was “hate speech.” They didn’t complain when leftist were driving people out of their jobs for having the wrong opinion about gay marriage. They can’t blame conservatives for being humorless sourpusses because conservatives aren’t the ones trying to destroy people’s lives for saying the wrong word or having an unpopular opinion.
MacFarlane wants to have an adult conversation with a leftist? Good frackin’ luck, pal.
