Okay, we’ve had “libertarian tough guys” telling us it is “the right wing” that stands up for free speech.
Milo Y kept on saying horrible things ™ and his supporters kept telling us that it’s only right wing comedians who have the courage to make challenging critiques of society.
Right wingers kept on telling us that it was those gawd awful lefties that try to shut down free speech, go on purges to get people fired and all that fun stuff…
Now, the shoe is on the other foot…
You have likely heard of the recent Kathy Griffin scandal….
So, why aren’t the “libertarian tough guys” defending her? After all, it’s supposed to be about “ideas” and not which side of the fence you sit, right? After all, didn’t they say the thing that made Trump gr8 was his refusal to kowtow to political correctness? Isn’t it a comedians job to push boundaries and test the limits of common decency (even if they admittedly go to far?)
Here’s Mr. Where’s the Beef, or was that ‘Roids, Joe Rogan….
Notice how his towel boy says, “Everyone would flip out if it was O’bama.”
Well, uncle Ted went there….
but he called the comparison “apples and hand grenades….”
So “libertarian tough guys,” which one is it? “Freedom of Speech” or “I need muh safe spaces?”
