And it doesn’t take the elitist, detached, morally vacant point of view from a Bill Maher flunkie staff writer to figure that out. Bill Whittle and Andrew Klavan explain the limits of comedy.
Mmmmmmmmmm. Could be.
In this case Rape is not funny, but it is quite telling.
Q: Was the author of the linked article profoundly stupid BEFORE the rape or did she become that way as a result of it?
I liked the bulk of the comments, identifying her as foolish in believing her rapist was simply a victim of white oppression, but I would NOT go so far as to blame the rape victim for the rape – after all, I am not a Leftist.
Why can’t she simply see him as a self-absorbed opportunistic a–hole who had probably never been “victimized” by The Man; if she listened to American female comedians she would understand this.
I was under the impression she WAS an American female comedian.
Words can hurt, but not the way the Left thinks – at least, not when we are dealing with the grown-up world. Grown-ups know that these crude remarks say more about the speaker than the subject, but there are two variables (that I am aware of) in play here:
1 – How crude was the remark (in light of the audience)? A rude private comment can have minimal impact, but a slur mentioned on TV (at the podium of a stadium event) is quite different, and different still if the crowd is “more coarse” than average (for instance, a USO event at a remote island during wartime).
2 – How “grown-up” are the speaker and victim? A leftist will continue to insult the victim if it proves to be an effective technique. This is where Class (on the part of the victim and/or audience) is sometimes all it takes to deflate the speaker, especially if the speaker has (at least) a hint of maturity. Sometimes “being put in one’s place” can be the defining moment in a Libtard’s conversion to Conservatism.
The tired and morally vacant comedic techniques effective in third grade need to retire by adulthood. Is there a way voting rights could be removed from people who find “juvenile humor” funny?
I applaud the gentleman in the video for having proper discretion.
