Many liberals love comedians who rip on President Trump and conservatives. Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel are mouthpieces for the Democratic Party. They no longer host purely comedy shows; late-night shows now resemble something you would normally see on CNN and MSNBC.
Jimmy Fallon was stoned by the leftist mob for “humanizing” President Trump. Fallon famously ruffled Trump’s hair on the Tonight Show, which was met by laughter from the crowd. The bit was funny.
However, comedy is set aside in favor of political tirades on late-night shows. The Johnny Carsons of the world are gone.
Liberals can’t take a joke now. Many of their favorite comedians are raunchy and push the line of what is permissible in social interactions. However, you are not allowed to push these boundaries if you are a conservative comedian.
Comedian Steven Crowder is feeling the wrath of the leftist mob. He has made fun of them, and they don’t like being the butt of the joke.
A Vox reporter is so mad that he has called for Crowder to be removed from YouTube for jokes Crowder made about him on his BlazeTV show, Louder with Crowder.
Vox Reporter Goes on Twitter Tantrum Over Crowder YouTube Ruling
Vox’s Carlos Maza reported Crowder to YouTube, asking them to ban Crowder for “offensive” jokes the comedian made against him.
YouTube denied his request. They released the following statement:
“Thanks again for taking the time to share all of this information with us. We take allegations of harassment very seriously- we know this is important and impacts a lot of people. Our teams spent the last few days conducting an in-depth review of the videos flagged to us, and while we found language that was clearly hurtful, the videos as posted don’t violate our policies. We’ve included more info below to explain this decision: As an open platform, it’s crucial for us to allow everyone-from creators to journalists to late-night TV hosts-to express their opinions within the scope of policies. Opinions can be deeply offensive, but if they don’t violate our policies, they’ll remain on our site. Even if a video remains on our site, it doesn’t mean we endorse/support that viewpoint.
There are other aspects of the channel that we’re still evaluating-we’ll be in touch with any further updates.”
Translation: Suck it up, buttercup.
Maza responded by unleashing a long Twitter temper-tantrum.
Warning: It’s a long tantrum. Here is a taste of what he tweeted.
“I don’t know what to say. @YouTube has decided not to punish Crowder, after he spent two years harassing me for being gay and Latino. I don’t know what to say.”
“To be crystal clear: @YouTube has decided that targeted racist and homophobic harassment does not violate its policies against hate speech or harassment. That’s an absolutely batshit policy that gives bigots free license.”
He wasn’t done yet.
“And if you’re an LGBT employee working @YouTube, what the f**k are you doing? The company isn’t your friend. It’s arming the monsters that we’ve spent our lives trying to get away from. Walk out of there.”
You get the point; I will spare you the rest of the tweets.
This episode illustrates liberals’ inability to withstand humor thrown at them. If you are going to be a media figure, you are going to be a target. Suck it up; it’s life. People say mean things in life and make offensive jokes. That doesn’t mean you go running to tell the principal every time you are made fun of.
YouTube didn’t give in to his pity party; good for them.
