Poor Little Politically Correct Snowflakes - Couldn't Handle Michelle Wolf's Jokes Saturday Night

Image may contain: 1 person
"Seriously! You people ought to be paying Trump with all the attention and column space you get from him!"

"Because fascists aren't known for their self-deprecating sense of humor, Trump skipped another White House correspondents dinner. (Can you imagine Benito attending an Il Duce roast?) In fact, fascists aren't known for possessing any sense of humor. " -  Blogger P.M. Carpenter on 'American Nazis Hold Cult Rally in Michigan'.

" As soon as a comic does his or her job too well and uses comedy to speak a truth that could jeopardize the press’s attempt to befriend the political players they cover, reporters put away their cellphone cameras and cry, 'Who invited such a rude woman?'   I'd like to offer this unofficial response from America's comics: If you don't like comedy then don't hire us!"  - Adam Conover,  NY Times, 'Michelle Wolf Did What Comedians Are Supposed To Do'.

The Times' Adam Conover is spot on about the little wussie, priggish press only wanting comics when it suits their purposes and never wanting to be made to feel uncomfortable.  Blogger P.M. Carpenter is quite correct that fascists and fascist - Nazi snowflakes absolutely hate humor takedowns of themselves by wiseass comics.  Who can forget, or maybe too many never knew, that the Three Stooges were put at the top of Hitler's "kill list" after their spoof ('You Nazty Spy')  came out taking der Fuhrer down a few notches, e.g.

(This short  evidently had Hitler in a spitting rage and came out four months before Charlie Chaplin's 'The Great Dictator'.)

In a similar vein, all the Right's  (including their media pawns) self-righteous snowflakes and fascist poltroons took umbrage at comic Michelle Wolf's humor at the White House Correspondents'   dinner. They failed to process that in extreme times, with a fascist like Trump defiling the nation, extreme humor is called for. You can see her performance here:

Trump didn't attend, opting instead to hold a rally for his little Nazi - fascist followers in Michigan. Just as well. Had he been there I'm sure Michelle would have roasted him to a far thee well. But-- like Hitler before him with the Three Stooges- he preferred to attack her on his twitter feed. (At least he doesn't have a Nazi kill list yet)

He called the Correspondents'  dinner an "embarrassment to everyone associated with it" oblivious to the fact the real embarrassment was to those fascist Amerikkans who attended his fascist, hateful rally in  Michigan's 93-percent white Washington Township, "the only sort of territory that will have him"  - in the words of blogger Carpenter,


"He prattled on for 75 torturous minutes, mostly elevating himself by tearing down pretty much everyone else. He particularly laid into Montana's Sen. Jon Tester, at one point declaring that "I know things about Tester that I could say … and if I said them, he’d never be elected again." (So why did he not say them?)

Added to Trump's familiar bête noires last night were James Comey, Andrew McCabe, the Justice Department, American intelligence agencies, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, California sanctuary cities, the European Union and, of course, the Fourth Estate, which has an appropriate habit of criticizing this godawfulest of U.S. presidents and best of two-bit authoritarians."

But the wannabe and actual Nazis that attended that hate fest are likely beyond humor anyway, just like their hero Doturd.

As for the media snowflakes and lily-livered imps bellyaching about Wolf's takedown of Huckleberry Sanders, they ought to hear some of Janice's choice comments whenever Sanders appears on the tube in typical 
über liar fashion.   All the petty little media whiners (like CNN's Chris Cillizza, NBC's Andrea Mitchell, and Mika Brzezinksi) bitching about Wolf assaulting Sanders' appearance have it all wrong, a fact they might have absorbed had they read the transcript of the riff on the Wa Po as I did.  As's  Matthew Rosza noted:

Objectively speaking, her comments about Sanders did not involve her looks. When she joked about how Sanders "burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye," the commentary was not on Sanders' appearance, but on her dishonesty. Similarly, when she compared Sanders to Aunt Lydia (whom Sanders looks nothing like), the jab was at the expense of totalitarianism. You could make the argument that comparing the Trump administration to a dystopian society is extreme or even silly, but it's absurd to claim that Wolf was trying to take down Sanders' appearance.

Maybe all these mewing media clowns merit being fired for their lack of intelligence and perception.

Responding initially to the Right's  crybabies and whiners  on why Wolf wasn't "vetted" first,  Margaret Talev (head of the White House Correspondents' Association)  told a CNN interviewer on Sunday

"It's a night about free speech and so by tradition we do not vet monologues"

Adding that "comedians invited over the past 30 years have often been controversial." 

Jeez Louise, who'da thought? Free speech for a White House correspondents' dinner!  Alas, the wimps, media whiners and  politically correct wussies  later got her to backtrack, saying "
unfortunately the entertainer’s monologue was not in the spirit” of the group’s mission."  Horse manure and balderdash! It was every bit in the spirit of a comedian recruited to entertain the assembled group. Recall Stephen Colbert's roasting of Bush Jr. some years ago? The deal is to make these entitled fuckers feel uncomfortable and get a few laughs while at it. (See the link at the end)

Carpenter's ending comment:

"What's to hate? Perhaps their love of a man who, as Ms. Wolf put it last night, "loves white nationalists, which is a weird term for a Nazi. Calling a Nazi a white nationalist is like calling a pedophile a kid-friend."

"Less than 20 minutes into the speech," reports the Washington Post, "some in the mostly white and older crowd headed for the exit." We await Trump's doing the same, so that America can get back to being America."

Is worth a re-read. If some of the crowd were indeed heading for the exits, maybe they will soon wake up and head for the exits electorally.

As for the reaction of the whiners to the Wolf comic remarks at the Correspondents' dinner, if their skin is so thin and they're so invested in the politically correct, maybe they shouldn't attend next year. (Oh, and a newsflash for CBS'  co-anchor Alex Wagner who prattled this morning that the event is "all about scholarship". No,  the WHCD is not about "scholarship".  If you want scholarship then go to the next series of journalism seminars sponsored by the Columbia Journalism Review!)

"The contrived uproar over Michelle Wolf’s comedy routine at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner is just that—contrived. It doesn’t merit dignifying as even a tempest in a teapot. In truth, her act was surprisingly tame, muted, even reserved. It didn’t begin to roast the attendees in a manner appropriate to the damage they have inflicted and continue to inflict on our country and world.

The media poses as a watchdog of the public interest, a “fourth estate” holding the powerful to account. But it’s a pose. It is critical to their maintaining credibility with the population they are assigned to pacify. For that is their real function in the cultural food chain: pacifying the people into quiescence and docility, even as their country is being stolen and wrecked out from beneath them. That’s what they get paid the big bucks for. It was Wolf’s naming that single fact that ignited the most contrived indignation."
