While the rest of Hollywood is busy deleting their history, Hart stood up and owned his.
Because he has something the rest of Hollywood doesn’t — a spine.
Kevin Hart has been working his ass off. He has been giving The Rock a good run for the title of “hardest working man in Hollywood”. He has some very big dreams and goals, with working his ass off being the only way to get there.
His hard work had paid off. He was asked to fulfill one of his ‘lifelong dreams‘.
For years I have been asked if I would ever Host the Oscars and my answer was always the same…I said that it would be the opportunity of a lifetime for me as a comedian and that it will happen when it’s suppose to. I am so happy to say that the day has finally come for me to host the Oscars. I am blown away simply because this has been a goal on my list for a long time….
That was until some Leftist Thought Crime zealot went sifting through his social media for a reason to hate him, and finding one, they took his dream away.
Rich and Doug talk about Kevin Hart getting booted from the Oscars in this politically correct world gone mad! They swing for the fences at just how messed up the Left’s view of comedy has become. (Enjoy!)
Sure, Hart later spoke all the right words about not wanting to offend anyone today.
But that wasn’t really the point, was it? Deconstructionists that they are, the zealots wanted to erase Hart’s YESTERDAY. They wanted to erase and invalidate the way things USED to be, the way we USED to see society. It’s absolutely Orwellian.
If it truly was about ‘not offending’ a protected group, they would have given Mika the Rosanne treatment after her nasty comment calling Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Trump’s ‘Butt Boy’ (it’s an unambiguous term for a homosexual male who’s a sexual submissive). She got no such treatment. Outrage is always selective, and with an eye toward a societal goal.
Hart, to his credit, played the man and didn’t bite. That was HIS bit, it was HIS joke, it was HIS comedy. Full stop, no excuses. Does yesterday’s comedy ‘work’ today? That depends on the joke. Humor — like fashions — change with the times.
Doug and Rich mention Monty’s Life of Brian in today’s show, and their bit about the guy who wanted to be a woman is even funnier in today’s cultural madness than it was back then.
But Hart didn’t flinch, and good for him. He’s a comedian, it’s not his job to make people comfortable. His job is to find things that are funny and make us laugh. The best comics can use that opportunity to make us think while we’re laughing. THOSE observations are, by definition, Politically Incorrect — and they make a society the better for it.
Kevin Hart is on the right side of history here.
Status is always ripe for satire, status is always good for comedy. Stephen Colbert
Colbert is only half-right. It isn’t just STATUS that’s always ripe for satire, but it’s the sacred cows too. Haven’t our ‘social betters’ learned anything from history? From failed Totalitarians and the Soviet repressions of expression? The harder they privileged class protects pet special interest groups from fair criticism, the more they open them up to open mocking.
Comics will ALWAYS get the last laugh… it’s only a matter of time.
