Are Comedians Finally Fighting Back Against the Far Left’s Cultural Clampdown?

Are comedians fighting back against the cultural Marxism of the critics?

So-called political correctness — which, oddly enough, is a line of ideological adherence which is neither political nor correct — has appeared to be clamping down on the comic stage for quite a while.

But there’s recent evidence to suggest those at the mic are trying to break free.

Buzzfeed recently scolded Dave Chappelle for “truly vile” jokes about transgender people, Michael Jackson, and the #MeToo movement in his Netflix special Sticks and Stones. Vice told folks to “skip” the performance, and Vanity Fair called the act “stale.”

Surely some on the far Left were also none too fond of Dave’s bit on the pro-choice position’s natural conclusion.

These days, as noted by The Daily caller, “One wrong word can get you canceled.”

Just ask Norm Macdonald: His Tonight Show appearance got shut down over his expressed empathy for Roseanne Barr and Louis C.K.

Comedian Nick Di Paolo — who’s politically conservative — told TDC the Left have come all the way ’round:

“It’s come full circle, now they’re eating each other. I’m the counter-culture now, guys like me that lean right. Those people, the woke ones, they are the culture. That’s how bad it is, that Chappelle and Bill Burr are labeled like the Anti-PC guys.”

Nick believes initial intentions were good:

“It started off with the right instincts. Nobody is for sexual harassment. Now they’ve taken it too…far. They’re lumping [Louis C.K.] in with Harvey Weinstein. And they’re not making any distinction. They got way ahead of their skiis on that one. It just got crazy.”

Joe Rogan pointed out some of the madness — specifically, the Left’s new notion that men and women are athletically the same — in his new video Triggered:

“It’s not sexist to say that women can’t do big physical labor things as good as giant men can. But people will tell you it is. Well, I’m not sexist. As a matter of fact, my favorite people are all female. I have a wife, and I have three daughters. They’re my favorite people in the world. But I could beat the **** out of all of them.”

In one of Chappelle’s segments, he did an impression of the audience telling a performer if they make a mistake, they’re done:

“If you do anything wrong in your life, and I find out about it, I’m gonna try and take everything away from you. … If I find out, you’re ****ing finished.”

“That’s what the audience sounds like to me,” he explained. “That’s why I don’t be coming out doing comedy all the time, ‘cause y’all…[are] the worst [people] I’ve ever tried to entertain in my…life.”

Other entertainers are echoing the sentiment:

To me personally, it seems that the whole idea of a joke has kind of gone out the window. It’s supposed to be a light comment not meant to be taken seriously.

But boy are there some serious people listening.

“This is the worst time ever to be a celebrity,” Dave lamented. “Everyone’s doomed.”
