Cancel culture has become a plague on society.
People are always under threat of losing their jobs due to political correctness.
But one liberal comedian said something that the cancel mob won’t like.
Perhaps people in the entertainment industry are finally getting sick of cancel culture.
Comedians in particular seem to be getting fed up.
Comics typically have free license to shock and offend, so they serve as the canary in the coalmine for society.
Comedians were arguably the first notice that something had broken in the culture.
Now Trevor Noah is the latest liberal comic to speak up about the censorious society that has been constructed by authoritarian leftists.
“Comedy Central’s The Daily Show host Trevor Noah is the latest comedian to publicly condemn cancel culture, saying people have become too quick to judge others. He also said everyone deserves a chance to redeem themselves. Trevor Noah joins a growing list of comedians who have denounced cancel culture as a harmful trend not just to the world of comedy, but to society as a whole. Others who have taken a stand against cancel culture include Dave Chappelle, Jerry Seinfeld, Eddie Murphy, John Cleese, and Rowan Atkinson. Trevor Noah made his point during an interview with Variety‘s ‘Awards Circuit’ podcast on Thursday, though he didn’t use the term ‘cancel culture’ by name.”
Some “woke” comedians have attempted to sanitize the profession, but veterans are beginning to grow a backbone.
Noah said, “I think we have gotten very comfortable discarding human beings, immediately tossing them away and making them irredeemable characters…When in fact, I think all of us should be afforded the opportunity to redeem ourselves. All of us should have an opportunity at redemption.”
Noah routinely has horrible leftist takes, but he occasionally has moments of lucidity.
He once caught a lot of heat for bringing conservative commentator Tomi Lahren onto his show, then grabbing lunch with her.
In the entertainment industry, being cordial with right-wingers is one of the most transgressive things a person can do.
Noah also stuck up for Kanye West, who was banned from performing at the Grammy Awards due to his “online behavior,” according to the organizers.
The industry has been uneasy with West ever since he donned a MAGA hat and met with Donald Trump at the White House.
Noah added, “Human beings are a paradox…We can love people who we hate, we can hate people who we love. Human beings as a whole are a complicated paradox. And so, I don’t like to live in a world where we constantly discard human beings like pieces of trash.”
But that’s exactly the type of society that leftists are trying to create.
The election of Donald Trump truly broke the left.
His victory in 2016 gave leftists permission to go as insane as they wanted.
Now left-of-center liberals have to decide if they are going to continue enabling the radicals, or put a stop to the madness.
