Where is the line between ‘comedy’ and ‘inciting violence’… and has this guy crossed it?
When Trump called Rosie a ‘pig’ the left nearly lost their mind!
Misogynist! What a b@stard!
But if the woman DARES to be strong and independent enough to side with the right, instead of being protected by the left, she becomes a lightning rod for it. Like all the names they call Ann Coulter George Lopez calling Melania a whore.
Is it a personal attack, and slander? Surely. But disgusting as it is, that’s still within the Left’s USUAL (low) standard of stopping short of calling for actual violence. However disgusting an expression of their right to free speech… it is simply speech.
The guy on stage AFTER Lopez was a different story.
Eddie Griffon called on his audience of roughly 15,000 people do DO something. The issue is WHAT he called on them to do:
Dallas, he pleaded, do your historic duty. You guys assassinated JFK. Next time he comes to Dallas, stick him in a convertible, drive him by the grassy knoll, get the rednecks out to the grassy knoll. He then acted out killing Donald Trump. He told them to do their job and kill him. This went on for about two minutes.
Ya’ll took out one president, you need to take out another,” he railed.
“Ya’ll need to put Trump into a convertible and take him out, or better yet, the driver should take him out,” he continued.
He acted like a sniper while doing this and suggested the driver turn around and shoot him, Ferguson said.
Not only did he say it, the audience went crazy.
There were all-star athletes at the event. Media had to be present but not one reported it.
Twitter and Facebook silenced Ferguson and that has never happened to him before. Ferguson has never had a video disappear.
The video started to go viral but Facebook took it down and took down copies by others. Videos of the other vile comedians are still posted but not this one. — Independent Sentinal
What an insensitive b@stard.
It hasn’t even been a full year since someone with JUST as much as hate as Griffon — but who at LEAST had the balls not to delegate his hate — and with the SAME action that Griffon pantomimed… snuffed out the lives of 5 uniformed officers, and wounded eleven other people.
These same ignorant asshats who see neo-nazis lurking under every bush stand in front of an audience and call for bloodshed.
If people don’t start getting arrested for such threats, such speech is normalized. And if we get to the point were it is normalized and accepted by society… some whackjob is going to have the justification he needs to act on it.
And while we’re at it… Why is THIS guy still a free man after directly calling for 10,000 people to murder white men?
Is ‘civil society’ now so uncivil that we need to TELL people that public calls for violence are NOT OK? Didn’t Obama spend a ton of money on anti-bullying campaigns?
A lot of good THAT did.
