Count Jerry Seinfeld among other comedians like Chris Rock, Bill Maher, and Jay Leno who agree that the only safe space for comedy is off of college campuses. The sad thing is that it’s not just Seinfeld’s decision; he’s actually been warned about avoiding colleges.
“I don’t play colleges but I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges, they’re so PC.’ Hey, I’ll give you an example. My daughter’s 14. My wife says to her, ‘Well, you know, in the next couple of years, I think maybe you’re going to want to hang around the city more on the weekends so you can see boys.’ You know, my daughter says, ‘That’s sexist.’ They just want to use these words. ‘That’s racist. That’s sexist. That’s prejudice.’ They don’t even know what they’re talking about.”
That last part is the saddest thing because liberals have so abused words like “racist” and “sexist,” they don’t even know what actual racism and sexism is. Hint: it generally doesn’t include light-hearted jokes ABOUT racism and sexism. If only there was a person who satirized things like this, like a Jerry Seinfeld, who they could talk to on campus about it.
