    You realize that your post actually illustrates the very point they are making here! It's the ridiculous, oversensitive feigned outrage over silly, exaggerated or fabricated reasons that they are pointing out. Some comedians won't even do colleges anymore, because so many students have been "conditioned" to be offended by everything. There is REAL suffering and oppression going on in the world, but in the mean time we have spoiled, privileged Americans who are conditioned to expect to be fawned over and treated as victims, because of something stupid, like they took something the wrong way, or couldn't handle a harmless joke! To people like that, I'd say to remember that it's NOT all about YOU. Think about what it's like for people who are starving or dying of a tropical disease somewhere else. You have it much better than they do! Quit with the personal pity parties...


    Nobody is "diminishing" anything. They are making the point that MLK was trying to solve legitimate oppression, while most modern SJW's are usually just screwing things up, being selfish, or trying to push a separate political agenda that isn't even really related to their SJW agenda.
    Leftists elites have ALWAYS praised and supported socialist/communist countries and leaders........At least until the 'experiment' fails, and the countries collapse. It's ONLY then, that they start claiming that "it wasn't real socialism"!

    How do you guys get this SO wrong?? MLK isn't the one being mocked here!! They are using humor and sarcasm to point out how a reasonable, credible, legit civil rights leader like MLK, has in modern times, been replaced by a lot of counterproductive, or selfish, or corrupt, or hypersensitive snowflake SJW's who are mostly making a mockery of the GOOD leaders of the past.

    WE aren't mocking MLK, the hateful charlatans of today's politically motivated, hyper-partisan SJW's are the ones who are making a mockery of MLK! He wanted true equality. They want to turn the tables and aim the hatred and oppression in reverse. He's rolling over in his grave..

    Perhaps you are correct; I was frankly so completely annoyed by the first 60 seconds I turned it off in disgust. To me, it made a mockery of MLK by using him as a present-day vehicle to push a purely partisan agenda... which it absolutely did. Sorry it didn't give me the giggles.

    It reminds me of a Jordan Peterson speech from the perspective of a typically calm, generally nonpartisan scientist, who is some times confronted by angry, spiteful people who literally know nothing about him, except for the negative, disingenuous propaganda they've heard from some Marxist source that seeks to defame, not to be reasonable.

    I thought it was hilarious. I'm telling you, if MLK had not died, but(as in an episode of Boondocks) had awoken from a coma he'd been in for the past 50+ years, he would be happy to see that so much progress has happened in race relations, compared with his time. But he would be baffled by the seemingly neverending new sources of outrage and offense in our society! He's been to 3rd world countries, so for him to see upper middle class white college kids being so triggered over nonsense, and literally demonizing the notion of free speech, would probably make him wish he could go under sedation for another 20 years, in hopes that people came to their senses by then!

    In the last six decades I have had my (previous) religion mocked and laughed at, My politics, my military career and so much more. I laughed at a lot, cringed at some, and said DAMN to others....

    All the time I could see dispassionately the what made the jokes humorous to some.

    MLKs speech will stand on its own merit for eternity. It is powerful. It touches people at many level. It is a call for unity. It is a challenge to do the right thing.

    That does not make it a sacred cow that cannot be chuckled at.

    Actually I think the only point you’re making is how over the top you are. I have an opinion and nothing more. I didn’t call for a boycott, I didn’t say it should be banned and I didn’t call for some comedian Jihadi over it. The only thing I did was give my comment over it. Stop looking more into it than I gave. Damn man stop looking to be a martyr for every comment you make.

    I didn’t find the skit funny and thought it was stupid and gave the reasons for it, nothing more.

    Fair enough.

    All my sacred cows died long ago. Too much Cheech and Chong, Sam Kinneson, SNL, Fridays, George Carlin, Robin Williams, etc.

    Perhaps I am jaded.
