Comedy’s Cultural Correctness
The next chapter against “PC” is being written and acted out.
Hopefully, more people will speak out so life will resume to being funny when things are funny.
Today, in its most recent form, PC (political correctness) has been taken to new levels of absurdness by the college generation of sensitive ears and paper-thin sensibilities. It’s ridiculous. We can’t say anything about anything or anybody. It’s that bad. Most of the time, it’s just jokes. Fortunately, Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Colin Quinn, Amy Schumer and others have taken a stand recently to remind this delusional generation that we are allowed to say what’s on our mind and to do so is quite normal.
In America, there’s this notion of free speech. It’s incredibly valuable in our society, as well as in our continuous development as human beings.

If only George Carlin was alive to tackle this resurgent cultural problem.
He’d certainly have more than 7-words to say to today’s PC Police…
