In the not-too-distant past, comedy clubs were the best places to truly test the limits of what you can get away with. Many of us likely remember the days when the likes of George Carlin and Richard Pryor would push the envelop as far as they could to get a laugh, challenging cultural norms in the process.
Evidently, those days are long-gone. Instead, today’s batch of comedians appear to be celebrating the death of free speech, rather than fighting to protect it by any means possible.
Recently, Seth Rogen appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show, where the Hollywood producer and actor had nothing but seemingly creepy praise for Canadian Prime Minister Justin “Peoplekind” Trudeau. The Canadian premier is perhaps best known today for supporting absurd laws that restrict speech, including his government’s push to criminalize referring to transgender individuals by the wrong pronoun.
In the video below, YouTube commentator and political satirist Steven Crowder takes Rogen and Trudeau to task, pointing out the irony of the comedy community supporting politicians like him. Comedy, at least as we know it, seems to be dying — and Crowder has a pretty good idea why.
