We’re so accustomed to Hollywood types being loony lefties it’s still shocking when they actually make sense. For example we’ve had many an entertaining moment from the likes of Sean Penn and Gwyneth Paltrow in the past. Now, liberal comedian Chelsea Handler has made a career out of outrageous statements and stunts, but here’s one that might surprise you.
As The Daily Caller reports, comedian Chelsea Handler recently stuck it to several key cultural representative groups with a penchant for victimhood, on the subject of political correctness.
“Americans have given political correctness a try and it’s not working,” Handler wrote. “We’re better off just saying what’s on our mind..and thinking about it before we say it…and laughing about it after we say it.”
“This is America, after all, and the First Amendment deserves to come first.”
Handler sat down with representatives from the Media Action Network for Asian Americans, the Anti-Defamation League, the NAACP, the National Hispanic Media Coalition, American Indians in Film & Television and the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Oh, to have been a fly in that room!The comedian’s honesty comes in the same week that boycotts and tears seem to be increasingly defining the Oscars for 2016. And just two weeks after the Women’s Media Center, in a hot rush of blood to the head, decided to try banning the word “foreign.” I wonder who will be the next to fire the starting gun on another event in the Oppression Olympics… Can someone just tell these dopes that folks are simply fed up over political correctness?
We’re sick of being attacked for micro-aggressing and macro-aggressing and trigger-warning and white-privileging and not knowing the 57 new genders and just being no-good racists because we disagree with Obama or use the word “Chicago” in a sarcastic way or think the Ferguson riots were without merit and…. fill in about a thousand more blanks.
