The Left has completely destroyed comedy.
A glaring example is the late-nite shows, which have just become nonstop leftist political rants.
And one late-nite host just shockingly justified this deadly act and no one is laughing.
Comedy is in a bad place right now.
Humor used to be a method of counterculture, but comedy has now morphed with the Left’s monoculture.
Conservatives, libertarians, or liberals who are willing to speak out against the Left are constantly attacked by the far-left outrage mob that’s gained a foothold.
For example, Ricky Gervais is very left-wing, but he’s championed by conservatives because he’s willing to stand up for free speech and go after the elites, a streak of boldness that is no longer present among many comics.
One of the “comedians” who’s now a part of the “in” crowd is Daily Show host Trevor Noah.
A rabid leftist, Noah went on a YouTube rant where he had the gall to defend rioting and looting.
Noah said, “When people burn things . . . there is never a right way to protest. And I’ve said this before, there is no right way to protest because that’s what protest is. It cannot be right because you are protesting against a thing that is stopping you.”
This is absurd.
The Constitution grants the right to peaceably assemble.
If what Noah said were true, the civil rights movement which was based on nonviolent noncooperation would be invalidated.
Rioting and looting is not an acceptable form of protest, particularly in America where there are so many avenues of expression.
Noah continued, “[T]ry to imagine how it must feel for black Americans when they watch themselves being looted every single day. Because that’s fundamentally what’s happening in America. Police in America are looting black bodies. And I know someone might think that’s an extreme phrase, but it’s not.”
No, it is an extreme phrase.
This is not supported by evidence at all.
And more often than not, the rioters and looters are destroying socio-economically depressed areas.
Noah doesn’t seem to have any compassion for the black business owners who are providing goods, services, and jobs in their communities.
Noah and other leftists only care about causes that can be used to inflame the masses.
Making excuses for rioting and looting only further terrorizes and impoverishes struggling communities.
That’s what makes Noah’s comments so dangerous.
