Everyone knows Hollywood holds a bias against conservatives.
Elites in entertainment routinely go out of their way to bash people who stand against leftism.
But one performer crossed the line with what he said about a war hero.
Politics Over Comedy
Hollywood obviously skews left.
But the 2016 election changed things.
Donald Trump’s surprise victory sent shockwaves through the country.
And Hollywood particularly felt the effects.
Trump Derangement Syndrome took over.
Celebrities took their leftism and kicked it into overdrive.
They organized marches.
They railed against the president.
They involved themselves in campaigns across the country.
Some, like Cynthia Nixon and Jim Carrey, openly called for socialism.
This mania seeped into the art itself.
After Trump’s election, cast members of Saturday Night Live cried at the end of the show.
They promised that they would “get through this.”
That type of leftist emotional meltdown is all too common these days.
Crossing the Line
SNL and late-nite comedy shows attack Trump and conservatives endlessly.
SNL even invited Stormy Daniels onto the show.
But liberal echo chambers often go too far.
That’s what happened with SNL cast member Pete Davidson.
During a “Weekend Update” sketch, Davidson made a tasteless joke about GOP congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw.
Crenshaw is a former Navy SEAL who did multiple tours in the Middle East.
He wears an eye patch after losing his sight to an IED blast.
Somehow Davidson — who has a tattoo of Hillary Clinton — thought this was hilarious.
Davidson said, “You may be surprised to hear that he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie.”
The “joke” stooped even lower.
Davidson added, “I’m sorry. I know he lost his eye in war or whatever.”
The sketch badly misfired.
People on both sides of the aisle condemned the blatant disrespect for a war veteran.
Even Davidson’s own castmate didn’t approve.
Kenan Thompson said, “You know my father’s a veteran, Vietnam, and I personally would never necessarily go there, but it’s tough when you’re fishing for jokes.”
Fortunately Crenshaw responded to the dig with class:
Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.

The midterms are here.
And everyone is on high alert.
Polls show Democrats may not get the blue wave they’ve been expecting for months.
This has the left very concerned.
If they fail to take back the House, their plans of impeaching Trump have to wait another two years.
And according to reports, the Mueller probe is all but over, and it’s looking like another nothing-burger.
So the ammo to impeach Trump looks weak.
The Democrats seem to be feeling this desperation.
That’s why their trusted soldiers in Hollywood are ramping up their attacks.
In light of this, Davidson did not do anything surprising.
This is how the left operates.
But if the Democrats reclaim the House, they will feel justified in their smear tactics.
And they would only get worse.
