When they go after Kimmel then I'll believe they are serious. Blackface - check. And The Man Show, sleazy sexist humor and having young women grope his crotch.

Yet there he is every night doing his popular talk show, no problem.

SJW's believe in selective outrage. Right now they are targeting Sarah Silverman and are yet not ready to come after Jimmy kimmels for doing black face. Sjws better come after Jimmy Kimmel fast before the culture war dies down.

Very true. Live by the sjw, die by the sjw. Sjws purge their very own people.

Kimmel is "in" with the mainstream media and thus he's shielded. The mainstream media controls the narrative. There might be some SJW nutjobs somewhere screaming for Kimmel's head but they might as well be screaming into outerspace if the mainstream media decides to ignore them.

This is how it works. The nutjobs and rejects of society (SJWs) are constantly screaming, and the mainstream media picks and chooses when to give them a megaphone.

I believe this to be very true. Look at Kimmel's past on the Man Show. Along with items mentioned already, like blackface and being very denigrating to women, he's also done skits like trick women into signing a petition to take away their right to vote, and on and on.

If the Hollywood elite wanted to, he would be gone now. So he has some shield around him. For now at least.

Interesting no? Over in the CD Retirement Forum we have people talking about “asexual homosexuals”, and how it somehow all makes sense...

He makes fun of Trump. Perhaps because he has to. If he defends Trump (or makes fun of Trump's opponents), the media will axe his career and blacklist him.

It is very obvious, he is being given a pass by Hollywood. His co-host Adam Carolla, not so much.

But when having this discussion among those who are happy to see celebrities punished for their past material, Kimmel's got to be in the conversation.

Personally I think comedy should be allowed to push boundaries and be edgy. Howard Stern had a real KKK guy on his show many times, and did an experiment called The n***er or the Nazi, where they would have a black guy and a guy dressed in a full Nazi uniform standing on a NYC street hailing a cab to see who got picked up, and the cabbies would often bypass the black man and pick up the Nazi. It was "funny" but of course uncomfortable, and edgy comedy does that.

The Man show was so over the top that it highlighted sexism and Bro Culture, so I think it was also edgy.

Silverman's show made you feel kind of uncomfortable because she played a grown woman with the mind and appearance of a spoiled, narcissistic child. Thus she could get away with saying and doing shocking things.

Same with South Park, cartoon 4th graders that can say anything but there's a message.

PC humor is hollow and dull. There is no edge, art or message.

And then a story like this comes along. Even being a rabid SJW Jewish Female isn't enough to be forgiven for retroactively-defined Social Justice Blasphemy.

We've got a long way to go folks. This could get into Cultural Revolution territory before it flames out.
I wasn't around for the "red scare" and McCarthyism but I am starting to imagine this is what it felt like. "Gee Bob, your college roommate was in the communist party we just can't hire you anymore."

I'm not talking about nailing guys like Epstein, Cosby, Weinstein to a wall (deservedly).

I'm talking about crap like "Mattress Girl" at Yale or whatever school that was out east that had consensual sex and then months later revoked consent and accused the guy of rape....or this case....and so forth.

Ted Danzen (Cheers) got in hot water for black face many many years ago and is still well employed so not sure what happened with Silverman, sometimes these things are just used as excuses in business or perhaps she strayed off the reservation with some tweets?

I think that you're picking up just a hint of what it takes to "get a pass" or at least just a slap on the wrist from the SJW mob but it's probably a truth you're not going to be able to internalize.

Hint: Like the far right giving Trump a pass for things that they'd pillory Obama or Clinton over.

Wow, I'd forgotten about that show. Wasn't that the one where they had eye-candy girls called the "Juggies" that would jump on trampolines and wear school girl outfits?

LMAO...yeah Kimmel gets the free pass, if only we could figure out why?

Couldn't possibly be his level of "right think" eh?
