Late Night Comedy Is About Politics Not Comedy

What moonbattery infiltrates, it subordinates. Take late night comedy. It once served to entertain Americans of every stripe. Now it has little to do with comedy or even entertainment, having been reduced to Two Minutes Hate sessions. Instead of laughing at jokes, audiences applaud stridently partisan rhetoric.

Jay Leno and David Letterman are left-wing, but they managed to appeal to a broad audience. Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel have no interest in entertaining those who don’t conform to political correctness. The objective is no longer to make money by reaching a wide audience. It is to shore up the hegemony of liberal establishment moonbattery.

Mark Dice documents the descent of late night comedy into leftist political rallies:

Now for the good news:

It is possible that the abundance of liberal political satire shows has opened the door for conservative Greg Gutfeld to beat these programs in the ratings game because he offered a different perspective. According to the entertainment website The Wrap, “Gutfeld!” surpassed every other late-night show in August with a total average of 2.120 million viewers.

Television isn’t everything. The most popular talk show host may actually be Steven Crowder:

According to YouTube data, the “Louder with Crowder” show averaged 1,398,575 in viewers aged 18-44 between September 2020 and August 2021. This metric doesn’t include viewers aged 45-49, and doesn’t include views on Crowder’s home of BlazeTV, views on the video platform Rumble, Facebook, or various podcast platforms. …

The viewership figures are even more impressive when you factor in that Crowder’s YouTube channel has been suspended multiple times by the powerful video-sharing social media network owned by Google, which has prevented episodes of “Louder with Crowder” from being broadcast.

Even with Big Tech moonbats trying to hamstring him,

Crowder’s channel has amassed more than 1.4 billion views on YouTube.

The information infrastructure is controlled by leftists. Think of the viewership that might be achieved if regular Americans create their own.

Cancelation of Clint Eastwood Is Canceled

At age 91, Clint Eastwood may be the last remnant of a Hollywood that reflected American culture rather than trying to replace it with a contrived culture more to the taste of moonbats. The liberal mob has inevitably demanded that he be canceled.

The thought police excavated an ideological infraction from an awards show that took place half a century ago. Via Fox News:

The clip in question comes from the 1973 Academy Awards in which actor Marlon Brando famously refused to accept his award for best actor in “The Godfather” and instead sent a Native American activist on stage to lament Hollywood’s treatment of American Indians by the film industry.

“I’m representing Marlon Brando this evening, and he has asked me to tell you, in a very long speech — which I cannot share with you presently because of time, but I will be glad to share with the press afterwards — that he very regretfully cannot accept this very generous award,” the activist, Sacheen Littlefeather, said on the podium. “And the reasons for this being are the treatment of American Indians today by the film industry, and on television in movie reruns, and also with recent happenings at Wounded Knee.”

Eastwood had been starring in some excellent Westerns. Before giving out the award, he made a harmless joke in reference to Littlefeather’s moonbattery:

“I don’t know if I should present this award, on behalf of all the cowboys shot in all the John Ford Westerns over the years.”

In light of the remark, this Hollywood icon ought to be erased from movie history, according to progressive activist Rafael Shimunov, who denounces Eastwood as racist.

For once the mob might not get its way:

The campaign against Eastwood appears to have fizzled out with many of the commenters on the thread defending the 91-year-old “Cry Macho” director.

Sooner or later, the worm will turn. A few will show courage, then a few more. Before long, the cancel mob will find itself canceled.

Rolling Stones Cancel Their Own Song

Back in its golden era, rock was rebellious. Some classic rockers maintain that spirit even now. Eric Clapton is reviled by the liberal establishment for failing to toe the line on Covid tyranny. Others were probably only posing all along, and consequently have aged less gracefully. Rather than risk the wrath of the cancel mob, the Rolling Stones have canceled one of their own songs:

The Rolling Stones announced Tuesday the rock band will no longer perform the hit song Brown Sugar amid accusations the 50-year-old classic is linked to the subjugation of slaves.

The lyrics are about the sexual abuse of slaves in centuries past. Obviously, the song does not endorse this abuse, yet it drew the attention of an idiot mob desperate to find something else to cancel. It is their second most-performed song after “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.”

Keith Richards wrote the song with Mick Jagger.

“I’m trying to figure out with the sisters quite where the beef is,” Richards, 77, said before asking his critics: “Didn’t they understand this was a song about the horrors of slavery?”

Yet they took it off the playlist anyway. Someone seems to be lacking stones.

Transsexuals Are to Women What Blackface Is to Blacks

No wonder the thought police have a warrant out for Dave Chappelle. There is only one thought crime more grievous than blackface: to say anything LGBT militants don’t like. Yet he made the stingingly valid point that transsexuals are to real women what blackface is to blacks — that is, a tasteless, demeaning parody. Then he doubled down by pointing out that only women are women:

These commonsense observations, which no one outside of a lunatic asylum would have found objectionable until a few years ago, have lit liberals’ hair aflame. The Blaze reports on the meltdown by a guy who calls himself Jaclyn Moore:

A white transgender showrunner is leaving Netflix over comments made by iconic comedian Dave Chappelle…

Moore said [he] could not work for a company that allowed Chappelle to “misgender” people.

I thought “misgendering” meant to refer to people by the appropriate pronouns even if they don’t like it. Chappelle calls Bruce I mean Caitlyn Jenner “her,” just like the media does.

But that’s not good enough. Recall from 1984 that in Room 101, even when Winston Smith said he saw five fingers rather than four, the torture continued, because O’Brien knew he didn’t really believe it. Likewise, Chappelle clearly does not believe that Bruce Jenner is a woman.

Looks like Moore stepped on an intersectional rake by calling attention to himself. His protest…

…was met with bewilderment by many black users on Twitter who were surprised and upset to discover that the show, “Dear White People,” was written in part by a white transgender woman.

“Wait a f***in minute. The show ‘dear white people’, which is supposedly about black ppl’s struggles & has a 90s soundtrack has a lead producer that is non-black??? & wants to boycott a black man???” read one popular tweet.

Moore effectively pretends to be black, just like he pretends to be a woman. You might even say that by writing for the show, he is wearing blackface. Then he boycotts someone who really is black. What a racist misogynist.

Tom MacDonald: America

Canadian Tom MacDonald understands what America has always been about better than Americans addled by moonbattery do:

Leftists have infiltrated and subverted virtually every institution previously dominated by patriots. Tom MacDonald gives them a taste of their own medicine by infiltrating rap.

Not Brainwashed” and “Clown World” also score direct hits on the moonbats.

Lee Greenwood Purged

It isn’t just the military (see here, here, here) that is getting purged of patriots. With Biden’s handlers in control, anyone leftists find threatening is subject to cancelation — even Lee Greenwood, who helped hold the country together with the song “God Bless the USA.”

Via LifeNews.com:

He wrote the song in 1983 to unite Americans and instill pride in the country. Ronald Reagan loved the song and played it at the 1984 Republican National Convention. It surged to the top of the charts in the aftermath of 9/11.

Greenwood was appointed to the National Council on the Arts by President George W. Bush. He was reappointed by Barack Obama and by Donald Trump.

But now the Biden Administration is kicking him off. Given the rigid intolerance of today’s Democrats, it isn’t surprising.

[Greenwood’s] anthem is pro-American and anti-globalist. And Joe Biden and the left are all in for globalism. That’s why they refuse to defend our borders. That’s why they claim America was founded by evil men.

America was founded by some of the greatest men who ever lived. However, it is currently ruled by evil men, determined to impose their stamp on every corner of life.

Maybe Lee Greenwood’s point of view is an anachronism in the age of Black Lives Matter…

But then, that’s why we need him more than ever.

Rose McGowan Targeted

There is a price to pay for bucking the Democratic Party in its strongholds like the entertainment industry. Rose McGowan has begun to pay it:

Before she actually turns up dead, let me say again that Rose McGowan did not kill herself.

Daniel Craig Pooh-Poohs Affirmative Action James Bond

Daniel Craig is stepping down as James Bond. The media wants him to endorse an identity politics token as the next 007. Craig shot this down:

[The Radio Times] asked if Craig would support a “more diverse appointment as his replacement.”

Craig’s response:

“The answer to that is very simple,” he began, “There should simply be better parts for women and actors of color.”

That is, instead of transmogrifying white male characters into representative tokens of preferred identity groups in the service of cultural Marxism, modern moviemakers should try creating an engaging character of their own, who they can make black, female, transsexual, pansexual, differently abled, undocumented, or whatever they like.

This isn’t actually an option, however, because the talentless phonies infesting Hollywood are incapable of producing compelling characters. All they can do is subvert characters created by more gifted generations.

They can’t even appreciate good entertainment and leave it alone, much less create something themselves from scratch. That’s why they feed the public a starvation diet of comic book superhero sequels and lame remakes.

The world has been inherited by idiot savages, who create art by breaking into the Louvre and snickering maliciously as they scrawl stick figures on the masterpieces. Kudos to Craig for not taking part.

Carl Clemons-Hopkins Makes History

Long ago, the entertainment industry presented us with people we liked. Now, it shoves down our throats people we are supposed to like for leftist social engineering purposes — like Carl Clemons-Hopkins:

Carl Clemons-Hopkins became the first non-binary person to be nominated for best supporting actor at the 73rd Emmy Awards on Sunday.

You need an edge to win these awards. For some, just having the right skin color isn’t enough.

To celebrate, the “Hacks” actor walked the red carpet in a custom Christian Siriano outfit inspired by the non-binary flag, according to the designer. The actor’s white button-down shirt, black trousers, purple belt, and purple and yellow train featured the colors of the flag.

Siriano lisps that “it will definitely go down as one of my most memorable looks that really has a meaningful purpose behind it.”

Like everything that comes at us through the liberal establishment media these days, it does indeed have a meaningful purpose behind it. That malevolent purpose is to subvert, corrupt, defile, and make disgusting every aspect of American society in the name of moonbattery.

The actor’s tasteless costume is explicitly intended to undermine “the heteronormative standard,” according to his stylist Jyotisha Bridges.

If this really is our culture now, the ChiCom conquest is overdue.

Maskless Hollywood Elite Laugh at You at Emmys

In case you didn’t get a bellyful of our sneeringly hypocritical limousine liberal ruling class at the Met Gala, let’s visit the Emmys. This event took place in the People’s Republic of California, where even 4-year-olds are forced to wear Covid obedience muzzles, despite this qualifying as child abuse. Only servants wore masks at the Emmys though, because rules don’t apply to the liberal elite:

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Dave Mustaine

As Nicki Minaj has been reminding us, not everyone in the entertainment industry is a spineless moonbat conformist. Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine is an actual countermoonbat.

At a concert in Camden on Wednesday, Mustaine let his fans know where he stands on the authoritarian overreaction to Covid:

“I just want to tell you how great it is. Look around you, guys. Look to your right, look to your left, and look how wonderful this is. We’re all here together. … We’re not freaking out, and we’re not yelling at people, ‘Where’s your f***ing mask?’”

Megadeth concerts are the wrong place to look for mask Karens.

“F*** Joe Biden” and the chant “USA” erupted from the crowd. Mustaine continued:

“Right now, what’s going on is tyranny. This is called tyranny. Look it up when you get home. And tyranny isn’t only in government. Tyranny right now is in the schools and tyranny is in the medical business. … We have the power… we have the power to change things.”

That we do. But we will have to stand up to the moonbats and push back.

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Nikki Minaj

The military has always been a bastion of conservative values; progressives have attacked it from within by installing leftists like Mark Milley and Lloyd Austin in key positions. Now moonbats get a taste of their own medicine, as they are attacked from within their most secure redoubt — the entertainment industry. Nikki Minaj has doubled down on her rebellious stance.

First, she enraged the liberal establishment with a commonsense tweet advising those unsure whether to get the Covid jab as Biden demands to “pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied.”

The mob came at her like a swarm of flying monkeys. Admirably, she chose not to cower and apologize like most do these days, but to stand her ground and denounce leftist cancel culture, aptly comparing it to the totalitarianism imposed by the regime in communist China:

This illustrates why the country used to function and doesn’t anymore. No doubt there is plenty that most conservatives would disagree with Nikki Minaj about, but we can respect each other because we are all Americans who agree on the importance of fundamental freedoms like free speech and bodily autonomy. Liberals used to agree too — but not anymore, which is why Nikki Minaj has set their hair on fire.

Tom MacDonald: Not Brainwashed

Not everyone in popular music is an obedient shill for the left-wing powers that be, even outside of country, even in rap. Tom MacDonald caters to the rebellious streak that still occasionally characterizes youth:

Highlights from the lyrics to “Brainwashed”:

We only dedicate one day to remember our fallen soldiers
The men and women who died young
But if you come out the closet as Caitlyn Jenner
You’re a hero and you get a whole pride month
The most dangerous pandemic’s propaganda from these clowns
Only mask that’s gonna save us is duct tape on they mouths
Don’t speak, we don’t need to defund police
Need to defund the media who lies through they teeth…

The government wants everybody fighting with their neighbors
‘Cause they know that if we get along, we’ll probably go against ’em

They can’t stop us ’cause we’re ready to fight
Try to brainwash us but we won’t let freedom die …

[C]ensoring the president and kicking him off Twitter
Is a bigger threat to freedom than foreign ballistic missiles
You don’t trust the police or the government but you want
People giving up their right to own a firearm

Not exactly ideologically aligned with the monotonously homogeneous entertainment industry.

MacDonald’s “Clown World” also gets high marks for countermoonbattery.

Megan Fox Sends Son to School in Dress

Actress Megan Fox has been milking the media for free publicity by complaining that her 8-year-old son showing up for school wearing a dress has not been received by the other kids with the politically required enthusiastic approval.

Weeps CNN:

Fox, who stars in the new movie “Till Death,” said in a recent interview that her eldest child, whom she shares with her ex-husband Brian Austin Green, has been criticized by “mean, awful and cruel people.”

Barks Fox:

“I send him to a really liberal, hippy school, but even there here in California he still has little boys going, ‘Boys don’t wear dresses,’ or ‘Boys don’t wear pink.’”

It will take more than a few decades of woke social engineering to eradicate every boy’s innate sense of what behavior is acceptable. If Ms Fox doesn’t want her son teased at school, she should stop sending him there in a dress. She is the one making his life miserable, not his schoolmates.
