    The choice of the comedians material and the decided bias they display is apparently a profitable path to take or they would not be doing so.

    The willing blindness of the audience being duped is what is concerning to me.

    The next step will probably be stars sewn onto the outfits of those that have been chosen to be the appointed enemies of the elites.

    Even in this thread, there are a huge number that justify blind, reflexive hate because they hold the blind, reflexive hate.

    We live in a world in which being on the right "side" is more important to many than having a logical, well reasoned set of principles to guide their actions.

    They "hate" those things they are told to hate and cannot see that the corrosive element is the hate, not the things.

    They don't see that the mob they have joined in is a lynch mob. It couldn't be. They hate lynch mobs, too, as well as the guy they conspire to lynch. A logical conundrum they cannot grasp.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Exactly. There is an insane amount of hate out there, and the left claims that it comes from everybody else but them, but in reality, the vast majority of it comes from them. It's scary how easy it truly is to expose leftist hypocrisy...

    My intention was to condemn both of the presented examples: BOTH Trump and Racial slurs. I suppose if you have no issue with one, then you have no issue with the other and so your confusion rises as evidenced by your post.
    How about this: I have a problem with people who make jokes that demean people based on their race. I donít have a problem with jokes that demean Trump because of his politics, narcissism or the fact that he has demeaned people because of their race (or gender).

    I like humor.

    I dislike hate and hate based actions.

    IF the jokes about Trump that you enjoy are funny because they are funny, that's terrific.

    Most of them are funny only because they attack and demean.

    As an example, there are legions of jokes regarding Trump having orange skin or a particular kind of hair. I would guess you enjoy these.

    Were you similarly amused by jokes regarding the color of Obama's skin or his particular kind of hair?

    Don’t enjoy jokes about Trump’s hair or skin, most are silly, and I saw him good-naturedly allow a late night host to muss his hair up. There is no need to make jokes about his appearance as he has done about women, or make up facts about him, as he does so frequently. But his narcissism, extraordinary lying and cynical use of race cry out for satire and ridicule.

    Those are less plentiful than the others.

    Do you have an example of his "cynical use of race"?

    Making fun of spray on tans is an American tradition. It isn't racial, it's about the stupidity involved in getting your skin color from a can. I bet this makes you angry you can't make jokes about black people stealing TVs and Obama being a dirty Kenyan.

    That's a bet you'd lose.
