What is Hate Comedy? Basically, it is the only form of comedy that one is subjected to these days – from the hate-mongering late night talk show hosts, to all the rabid liberal faux comedians touting themselves as stand-up comedians, to the no-longer-funny Comedy Central Roasts, and even to the White House Correspondents Association Dinner.
Hate Comedy is cruelty and humiliation disguised as humor, confusing no sane person of its motivation, which is visceral hatred of the target of the so-called humor and an unbounding anger that their party did not win the White House or take control of Congress. It is pure, unadulterated hate thinly-masked as satire.
Hate Comedy is, in fact, not comedy at all.
Comedians, the overwhelming majority who are mentally feeble and rabid leftists, hate Donald Trump and all those who in any way, shape, or form, support him or embrace his views, so much that they aren’t funny anymore. They have become so sickening and despicable that people listening to them react to their routines as they would a dog suffering from signs of rabies or liberal millennials act deranged and who scream unintelligible and rantings. First they are repulsed, but then they look on with curiosity, diagnosing them as suffering from a compulsive sickness and noting how advanced their condition is. Only like-minded looney leftist haters get the “humor.” It’s only because they identify with the underlying hate.
They also share the same vile vocabulary, the same lack of a sense of decency, and the same level of disrespect.
Pete Davidson, a cast member of the once-funny Saturday Night Live, is one such so-called comedian… another liberal piece of dog poop who deals in hate comedy. At 25, he seems pretty impressed with himself. He supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, and on December 5, 2017, he stated on his Instagram account that he got a tattoo on his leg of Clinton, whom he called his “hero,” a “badass”, and “one of the strongest people in the universe.” The parents and families of US Ambassador Chris Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and CIA operatives Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty who died in 2012 Benghazi under Clinton’s watch, as well as the millions still waiting for answers in regard to that fateful attack, would hardly use those words to describe Mrs. Clinton. Davidson, who says he “cannot function without marijuana” apparently feels he is qualified to know what is best for the country.
Like so many other liberal comedians, Pete Davidson tries to disguise his hatred of conservatives with humor. But here’s a news flash: Politics and humor don’t mix anymore, not in this political climate, not with Donald Trump as president. What oozes from the mouths of so many liberal self-proclaimed comedians is indistinguishable from the stuff that exits their asses. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich refers to their choice of expression as a pathology “So they exhibit their anger as almost a pathology on late-night television and you’re supposed to laugh because, after all, they’re comedians,” he said.
Two weeks ago, Pete Davidson used a skit on SNL to take a cheap shot at former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw – in particular, to make fun of his eyepatch, which he wears to cover the loss of his eye (lost in service to his country):
(Laughing like a moronic high school kid trying to act cool in front of his classmates) “There are some really gross people running for office this year, so here are my first impressions….. Dan Crenshaw (laughing even harder when a picture of Mr. Crenshaw was shown on the screen)….. You might be surprised to hear that he’s a Republican Congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie. (Unable to contain his laughter; apparently he thinks he’s the next Rodney Dangerfield). I’m sorry (still laughing), I know he lost his eye in a war – or whatever…… “
Crenshaw lost his eye when an IED blew up in his face during his third combat tour in Afghanistan. Unlike Davidson, he is kind and respectful and full of humility, as well as intelligent and informed.
There was a time, years ago, when both sides at least were somewhat respectful and yes, funny. Who can forget the time when Saturday Night Live (SNL) was actually funny and ran skits mocking President Gerald Ford for his clumsiness, teasing President Bill Clinton about his Oval Office shenanigans, making fun of George W. Bush for his clumsy use of the English language, and depicting President Barack Obama as egotistical and narcissistic. Good times. We all laughed and no one was offended by these skits. There never seemed to be any outright hatred underlying the comedy skits.
During the 2016 presidential election season, President Obama appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to help stump for Hillary Clinton. He read a tweet from Donald Trump in which the Republican nominee wrote “President Obama will go down as the worst President in American history.” To that Obama responded, in perfect comedic form, “At least I will go down as a President.”
It was funny. I got a good laugh out of it. The truth is that Obama was good with the jokes and I enjoyed his sense of humor.
But then Donald Trump, against all odds (the Democratic odds, that is), won the election. And everything changed. Sure, he egged folks on with his Trumpian brand of crassness and confrontation, and sure, it instigated the left, but he has backed off on such tactics and has been acting more “presidential” since taking office.
On his late night show, Stephen Colbert had the audacity to articulate this message to President Trump: “The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c–k holster.” (hinting at Trump engaging on oral sex with the Russian leader).
Never-funny Samantha Bee commented on her show, Full Frontal: “We are living in a Golden Age of journalism. Unfortunately, that’s partly due to a golden president who’s rumored to enjoy golden showers.” During another show, she called Sen. Ted Cruz a “fish-faced horses*** salesman.”
Michelle Wolf shocked the entire nation with her cruel insults of White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders at the 2018 annual White House Correspondents dinner. Sarah was sitting right near Wolf and had to endure the harsh insults, including comments on her appearance, while the live and viewing audiences watched. She managed to hide her humiliation with composure and grace.
Chelsea Handler was so over-the-top hateful and so aggressive with her attacks on the president that her Netflix comedy show was cancelled.
The Democratic Party is the home of these whack-a-doo, liberal haters. They are in comedy, in entertainment, in reporting, in our university faculty, and are hosts of talk shows. It is said that the Democratic Party used to be the Party of bad ideas but now it’s the party of bad people. The rhetoric from these individuals proves the point.
Hopefully, Full Frontal will be next to be cancelled. Bee can always don a pink vagina hat and speak at a Woman’s March if she wants to rail against Trump and use the vile gutter language that joins her with the likes of Madonna and Ashley Judd. And maybe someone will convince Lorne Michaels, the producer of Saturday Night Live to finally put the show out of its misery. The show is clearly suffering from a lack of comedic material.
Davidson’s skit was universally condemned as being vile and despicable, and totally uncalled for. He crossed a line. It was offensive and repugnant, and not the least bit funny. Without making any point at all, he disrespected a man who wore the uniform of the United States and made as near the ultimate sacrifice for his country as possible. Crenshaw, taking note, took to Twitter with a perfect, and classy, response: “Good rule in life: I try not to offend. I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope that @nbcsnl [Saturday Night Live] recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.”
Dan Crenshaw served his country in probably one of the most demanding of ways – as a Navy SEAL. We are indebted to men like him who can withstand the physical challenges that SEALS must endure. Pete Davidson can’t even serve his country by treating them to some decent comedy.
