How come mainstream comedians never have a go at political correctness? If there’s something that needs to be mocked and ridiculed it’s political correctness, with its twisted sense of logic, made-up ‘values’ and total intolerance to anything that goes against its dogma. Have you ever encountered ridicule of political correctness, say, on Saturday Night Live or on The Daily Show, the two beacons of political satire in America? No, of course you haven’t. And have you heard any jokes about PC by the TV chat-show hosts who position themselves as great comedians these days? Nope, nothing like that happens.
For the mainstream comedy lot political correctness is sacred. They would rather sell their mamas than laugh at PC.
We have so-called comedians these days who manage to be unfunny throughout their whole routines, laughing at their own joke themselves mostly. And in an attempt to spice up their routines they introduce swearing that is considered ‘controversial’ among fans of modern comedy. And never mind that all those F-words are often said completely out of context, the audiences still roar with laughter, obviously thinking that it’s very politically incorrect to say the F-word, over and over again.
Swearing in comedy routines, so that you know, is very politically correct. Why? Because it doesn’t upset any of the lowlifes that comedy and satire should be upsetting. Just like toilet jokes or jokes about sexual intercourse in all its glorious detail are the epitome of political correctness. They are meaningless and offend no one. So they are considered safe by the lot that populated the mainstream comedy circuit who dream of becoming rich and famous and even get some advertising deal with a big bank or some retail giant. All this rubbish about mainstream comedians giving a hard time to big business is just that, rubbish. They are very careful so as not to offend possible corporate clients. Yes, in case you don’t know that, corporate gigs are big business for big names in comedy.
But religion, apart from mocking Islam, naturally, is considered a safe target for the PC lot who populate the mainstream comedy scene. Because they know perfectly well that they stand nothing to lose, what with the entertainment world run exclusively by liberal lefties who have their own idea of what’s funny and what is not. These people would never in their life allow any proper politically incorrect comedian to achieve success. Doesn’t fit into their narrative, you see.
And there are more politically correct subjects that the comedy world is peddling, pretending that they are controversial and politically incorrect. Having a go at family and marriage is considered a must for any non-talent on the comedy scene. And talking about booze and drugs in a way that makes them look funny and harmful is top of their list as well. In fact, some of the comedy acts have done so much to promote dope that you could be forgiven for thinking that they are sponsored by the drug cartels. Mind you, some of them must be into drugs as well, as what they say most of the time doesn’t make any sense at all.
But you know what happens when political correctness takes over comedy and satire? They become so unfunny that you wouldn’t even know whether it’s a joke you are hearing or it’s just some ranting of an idiot who has no idea what he’s talking about. Yes, people, political correctness is a vicious form of censorship that has been turning humour and satire into pathetic exercises of avoiding saying anything even slightly offensive to the liberal mafia that is running the world of entertainment and media. And that is why there are no funny comedies around and no funny books while stand-up comedy routines attract audiences consisting of people who would laugh at any leftie drivel.
And when humour and satire die, everything else starts to go wrong as well, because mankind loses its ability to laugh at itself. And that in turn means that it finds itself in a giant mess. Which is what is happening now.Share
