The liberals have unleashed a “war on comedy,” as anti-PC comics storm the nation with awesome, offensive, funny humor that makes fun of everybody and everything.
Liberals are panicking.
Dave Chappelle, Bill Barr, and Adam Carolla are leading the charge against the liberal “cancel culture” agenda, that’s not only squashing free speech, it’s killing fun and humor, too.
Case in point – a new SNL cast member, Shane Gills, was fired abruptly, after some of his past “jokes” were now deemed “offensive” by intolerant communist liberals.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
Pro-Trump comedian and former SNL cast member Rob Schneider, who has blasted SNL in the past for being “unfunny” due to their hatred for Trump, is speaking out again to show support for Gills, and shredding the liberal’s “war on comedy.”
Actor and comedian Rob Schneider gave Shane Gillis a show of support after the newest “Saturday Night Live” cast member was abruptly fired from the show.
At a time when it seems the word has forgotten how to laugh or be forgiving, Schneider offered Gillis some perspective in a tweet saying he was “sorry” that he had been chosen to join the cast of the long-running show in an “era of culture unforgiveness.”
Schneider also correctly pointed out the “risk” it takes to be a comedian and deliver material that might offend or not resonate with an audience. The kind of risk most network execs likely would never take.
Gillis was fired from the late-night NBC show after a video surfaced of him using a racial slur during a podcast discussion about a Chinatown neighborhood with another comedian.
“As a former SNL cast member I am sorry that you had the misfortune of being a cast member during this era of cultural unforgiveness where comedic misfires are subject to the intolerable inquisition of those who never risked bombing on stage themselves,” Schneider, an “SNL” alumnus, tweeted Monday.

After the firing, Gills defended himself, saying he is a comic who likes to push the boundaries.

I mean, isn’t that what comedy is all about? It’s fun to laugh at each other and poke fun at our differences. Comedy is actually what “unites” us. Laughing at each other breaks tension and loosens up the mood. That is exactly what this country needs right now.
We need more comedians to step up and take on the left’s tyrannical Political Correct culture. These people may be able to save us, one laugh at a time.
