Comedy is the last bastion for free speech…sort of.
Sure, while most comedians get a little leeway, a lot of the greats simply won’t perform anymore due to the rise of Cancel Culture and society’s penchant for being offended.
But “being offended” doesn’t really mean anything in 2021 because EVERYTHING seems to offend somebody.
However, there’s a little secret that we’ve forgotten about that needs to be rediscovered in our society: just because you’re offended doesn’t mean you’re right.
Bottom line, you being offended is YOUR problem, not mine.
Which is why so many Conservatives LOVE Bill Burr.
Burr is a comedian that doesn’t care whether or not you like him and DEFINITELY couldn’t care less about whether he offends people with his act.
You would think that he’s a dyed-in-the-wool Conservative from the way he acts, but honestly you really can’t tell because NOBODY is beyond his targeting.
That being said, I definitely agree with his most recent target: the very progenitor of fake news, CNN.
Burr Destroys CNN
During his podcast, Burr went on one of his trademark tirades about the “news” outlet – and I have to say, it was GLORIOUS!
“I swear to God, I cannot believe people watch that channel. They’re so dumb,” Burr ranted. “They’re f***ing treasonous un-American pieces of s***.”
That’s a pretty heavy label that Burr just stamped onto CNN…but then again, they’re a news company that sold out to the Liberals and chose NOT to report on the truth, so don’t feel too bad.
It’s heavy, yes… but it’s accurate.
Burr mentioned that his mother-in-law turns on CNN whenever she comes over to watch his kids, “She always puts on CNN and do you know what those f***ing morons are doing? Do you know what those f***ing morons are doing?! They’re f***ing talking about Trump.”
Of course they are.
Trump has been their cash cow for the better part of the past five years. There’s no telling where they’d be if they had stopped reporting on the former president. Maybe bankrupt…
But Burr’s right—CNN is OBSESSED with Trump.
“It’s like, do you think these people give a f*** who’s president? They want Darth Vader to come back,” Burr scolded. “They want him [Trump] to come back. Because they had nothing to talk about, because it’s show business, and Joe Biden is a f***ing bore.”
That’s where we disagree, Burr.
I think Sleepy Joe is an absolute HOOT to watch – though, not for any positive reason. It’s just to see what his brain is going to allow him to say next.
Watching him stutter and lose his way during the shortest of statements is as entertaining as it is sad and angering.
This man shouldn’t be the president for a multitude of reasons…and yet, here he is.
Here’s Why CNN Can’t Let Trump Go
However, Burr is right that the Left keeps their mouth shut on Sleepy Joe – and the comedian explains why.
“They can’t b**** about [Biden] because he’s wearing a blue tie,” he said, inferring that Joe’s tie color is a sign that he’s a Democrat. “So now what do they do? They’re going out there, they’re doing what they did the first time to get this guy [Trump] elected, by giving him all this free coverage, while they act like they allegedly don’t like him. I don’t buy it. I don’t buy it. They are a corporate news channel.”
Again, he’s right.
One of the big reasons that Trump won in 2016 is because of all the free publicity he received from the Left’s constant derision.
Here’s one of my favorite clips about Trump’s “free publicity.”
It’s Ann Coulter on Bill Maher, and when he asked who she thought would win the 2016 election, she declared Donald Trump.
The looks on the faces of the guests and the laughter of the audience were AWESOME now, especially given how dumb they must have felt after Trump won.
Here’s the thing…without Trump as their boogieman, the Left doesn’t really have much.
Of course they’re going to continue to bring him up because his name keeps idiots tuned into their channel.
I’m just glad somebody called them out on it – and it’s only fitting it was one of the funniest men in comedy.
He pointed out the truth that many in Hollywood are afraid to admit: CNN sucks…and it’s time the world accepted that.
