America is definitely not what it used to be. Humor was actually funny here at one time… now, everyone just gets offended. Here’s an idea… if you don’t like a comic or his humor, walk away. Don’t take humor away from everyone else. I enjoy certain types of bawdy humor – Benny Hill comes to mind – but nothing is allowed to be funny anymore. We’re surrounded by communist prudes these days.
British comedian and actor Ricky Gervais, for instance, does not share my political views but he’s funny. He ripped the left a new one this week wondering why he’s suddenly labeled as an “alt-right Nazi” for defending free speech. Good question. This guy is a socialist and an atheist but he believes in free speech and hates political correctness. Since he engages in unsanctioned opinions, the left turned on him like a rabid pack of hounds.
I'm an old fashioned liberal lefty, champagne socialist type of guy. A pro-equality, opportunity-for-all, welfare state snowflake. But, if I ever defend freedom of speech on here, I'm suddenly an alt right nazi. How did that happen? pic.twitter.com/9pYrTJlQHK

“I’m an old fashioned liberal lefty, champagne socialist type of guy. A pro-equality, opportunity-for-all, welfare state snowflake. But, if I ever defend freedom of speech on here, I’m suddenly an alt-right nazi. How did that happen?” Ricky Gervais stated.
Gervais is a lefty but he also knows that his rights are being threatened. Back in 2016, he predicted President Trump’s victory due to the forces of political correctness that have run amok in America. He was right. “People are tired of being told they can’t say things, so he’s suddenly this poster boy for saying what’s on your mind, however terrible it is,” he said.
There is no subject out of bounds. People often get offended when they mistake the subject of a joke with the actual target. It all depends on the joke.

“More recently, Gervais went on a social media tirade in support of Louis C.K. after a leaked set of his took the internet by storm.
“During the set, the former Louie star can be heard joking about “non-binary” people and the Parkland survivors.
“[Young people] are just boring. Fucking telling, ‘You shouldn’t say that.’ What are you, an old lady? What are you fucking doing?” he said.
“‘Nyeah, that’s not appropriate.’ Fuck you! You’re a child! Why aren’t you finger-fucking each other and doing Jell-O shots?”
“Gervais responded to the backlash against C.K., saying, “Please stop saying ‘You can’t joke about anything anymore.’ You can.”
“You can joke about whatever the fuck you like. And some people won’t like it and they will tell you they don’t like it. And then it’s up to you whether you give a fuck or not. And so on. It’s a good system.”
“The 57-year-old also defended offensive comedy in general, saying, “There is no subject out of bounds. People often get offended when they mistake the subject of a joke with the actual target. It all depends on the joke.”’
Humor is supposed to offend as well as be funny. Some of the best shows in Vegas are the most offensive. Don Rickles must be rolling over in his grave right now, right next to Rodney Dangerfield. People need to get over themselves and stop making the act of having fun and a good laugh off limits. This is getting old, especially when I find myself in solid agreement with a socialist.

Bernie Sanders: “There Is No Middle Ground,” ‘We’re Going To Stop Using Gas & Coal’
Gotta love when Millionaire communists lecture you on what you can and can’t do. Good thing he will never be elected President!
Via The Daily Caller:
2020 candidate and self-described democratic socialist Bernie Sanders said that the United States has to stop using gasoline and coal, and that “there ain’t no middle ground” on the issue.
“It is no secret that we must transition away from fossil fuels, period. End of discussion. There ain’t no middle ground…There is no middle ground,” Sanders said during a speech Thursday in California.
The Independent Vermont senator released a climate plan Thursday modeled after the “Green New Deal” that called for $16 trillion in new spending to fight climate change.
A key part of the plan is “Justice for frontline communities,” which refers to “under-resourced groups, communities of color, Native Americans, people with disabilities, children and the elderly – to recover from, and prepare for, the climate impacts, including through a $40 billion Climate Justice Resiliency Fund.”
Sanders’ plan, which is modeled as a “Green New Deal,” also targets “environmental racism.”
“The Green New Deal must serve to address modern and historical inequities and environmental racism,” it reads.
Sanders has sought to separate himself from the field of other 2020 Democratic contenders by proposing far-left plans on a variety of issues.
On health care, Sanders supports a “Medicare for All” style plan which would eliminate private health insurance plans and give free health care to illegal immigrants. Continue Reading
Bernie Sanders Says His $16-Trillion Green New Deal-Like Plan Will Create 20 Million Jobs
Via Daily Caller:
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders introduced a $16.3-trillion plan similar to the Green New Deal on Thursday, which he says will create 20 million jobs.
The plan aims to make 100% of energy for U.S. electricity and transportation renewable by 2030 and have “complete decarbonization” by 2050, according to its outline.
Bernie Sanders just spoke at a rally in downtown Sacramento. Trump supporters showed up & they didn't attack or beat anyone. They just politely discussed their political beliefs with those in attendance. Wonder if MSM will cover that. @realDonaldTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @Scavino45 pic.twitter.com/e1e8gAbZPW

“As President, Bernie Sanders will boldly embrace the moral imperative of climate change and mobilize the political will necessary for a wholesale transformation of our society, with massive investments in sustainable energy, energy efficiency, and a transformation of our transportation system,” his plan reads.
