Wait, you're telling me a professional comedian tried to make a joke but it wasn't all that funny? I've never seen that happen before.

"Woke", a term that originally meant "aware of how invisible structural racism affects everyday life", has quickly morphed in the hands of right-wingers to "lefties complaining about racism", to "lefties complaining about any issue of privilege," to "lefties complaining about literally anything," to now, apparently, "anyone complaining about anything."

People making fun of a rich lady for whining about how tough her cushioned, gold-plated, mansion-dwelling life is? That's not "OMG WOKE", that's what people have been doing -- hell, that's what Fark's been doing -- since the first zero-self-awareness celebrity first opened their mouth to complain about how hard their life is in front of a microphone.

LewDux: Eightballjacket: And then there is the whole worship of rapists like Polanski an Weinstein.

So "cancel culture" is good?


For people who rape?  Yes
For those who enable them and cheer them on, maybe not cancel, but call them out on their BS.  I'll still see their movies, but please spare me from their bizarre moralizing.

Just wait till we get the riveting report about the tweets about the CNN report on the YouTube comments.  It's turtles all the way down from here.

CNN's website has more clickbait than actual news, they should be embarrassed.

Having spent a few days in jail myself, I really don't think anyone who spent more than a few months in jail would take any offense to this joke coming from a 130 lb white lesbian.

This is just another example of people taking offense on behalf of other people.

advex101: blame talk radio (of all political stripes) and the 24 hour news cycle.  When you have 24 hours to fill you have to talk about something and biatching is something that people love to do.

Nurglitch: shoegaze99: Leishu: I think that most people can agree that her comparing waiting this out in her 20+ million dollar compound is probably just not comparable to prison.

It was a joke. Not sure why that's so difficult for people to understand. She wasn't actually making a comparison, she was making a joke. The punchline is right there in the article.

Whether or not it's funny is a matter of taste, but there should be zero question about whether or not she was even a little bit serious, because the answer is obvious: it was a light-hearted quip and nothing more.

The only tone deaf people here are the ones complaining about this.

I wouldn't say they're tone-deaf just for not sharing a sense of humour.


No, they're tone-Helen Keller.

Which illustrates the folly of the concept from the very first beginnings.

When you make everything about racism, sexism, or whateverism, this is the inevitable result.  You don't get to biatch and moan about other people biatching and moaning when your whole raison d'etre is biatching and moaning.

This is like a kid playing with matches, then claiming he only started a small fire in his bedroom so it's not his fault the house burned down.

Not really feeling like "duh, libs, of course we can't ever talk about racism, because otherwise people are mean to Ellen DeGeneres for complaining about being stuck in her mansion" is really the level-headed analysis you think it is.

You forgot to call me a Nazi.   That's what you do now, isn't it?


Yep, that's our ilk
