The entertainment industry continues to lash out after six years of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
People on the left still have not figured out how off-putting TDS is.
And this “canceled” liberal comedian gave Democrats one warning about Trump.
Liberal comic Louis C.K. was one of the casualties of the #MeToo Movement.
Despite condemnation from the progressive media class, he’s slowly attempting to mount a comeback after apologizing for inappropriate behavior on his acclaimed HBO show Louie.
And Louis C.K. gave progressives a warning about driving people into the arms of Donald Trump.
The comedian, who’s also a history buff, is in the middle of a podcast series on the American presidents.
During a discussion with the podcast’s co-hosts Louis explained the difference between the way Republicans and progressives talk to people.
He explained, “‘I’m afraid to tell you, but you’re a Republican.’ That’s what people [on the right] do. It’s like, ‘Come here…I’m like you, you’re like me more than you understand.’ And they hedge it. They go, ‘Now, I don’t agree with my opponent’s bill for healthcare, but I have the same concern as you do about healthcare. I have the same values you do. We’re alike. You should vote for me.’”
Conservatives generally know how to talk to people who disagree with them.
He continued, “But what progressives do is you actually say to them, ‘I’m a progressive,’ and they go, ‘Really? Prove it.’ Well, I’m for gay marriage. ‘What do you mean gay? What do you mean marriage? You are a Trump’—they, like, tell other people that they belong to Trump…They push people away because the goal is not actually to win and to change the country…[T]hey’re trying to show what they think and perform what they are…and they’re addicted. It’s a sickness. I feel sorry for them. I don’t hate people like this.”
Louis C.K. is describing a phenomenon experienced by many people who feel isolated by the hard left.
Elon Musk expressed a similar sentiment by retweeting a cartoon that depicted the left running to the fringes.

If progressives keep scaring people away, Democrats are going to have a tough time winning elections.
They’re already primed to get wiped out in the midterm elections.
With Louis C.K. and others speaking out, there could perhaps be a sea change afoot in the entertainment industry.
People are tired of getting lectured to by insufferable scolds that are convinced of their moral superiority.
