Jenny Beth’s Journal: American “comedians” stooping to ‘new depths of incivility’
The political rhetoric that permeates American late-night “comedy” has reached a new low, as liberal pundits attack their political opponents using the same – and worse! – vulgarities those same liberal pundits use as ammunition to condemn their opponents. Basically, if you’re a liberal attacking conservatives, anything goes in today’s society; that needs to change, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin says in her latest opinion piece.
Concurrent with the decline of creativity among elite artists has been the dramatic decline of civility – and in its place, crassness and crudeness have been elevated to art forms, as America’s left-wing “entertainers” descend to new depths of incivility in apparent attempts to outdo one another.
In the last several weeks alone, Americans have been subjected to vicious, disgusting, and violent “art” from the likes of late-night comic Stephen Colbert (who gave a vulgar diatribe against President Trump on network television) and Kathy Griffin, whose Twitter feed presented gruesome pictures of a photo-shoot in which she recreated ISIS-type beheading scenes with a bloodied mask bearing President Trump’s likeness.
And, continuing the artistic world’s fascination with the current president, on Monday, the publicly-funded Public Theater’s rendition of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar,” directed by Oskar Eustis, officially opened at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. The Julius Caesar character is styled as President Trump, from his suit and tie to his shock of blond hair. The play faithfully follows Shakespeare’s script, with the President Trump-inspired version of Julius Caesar being knifed to death on stage. This is what passes for art in liberal Manhattan circles.
Liberals attack Sarah Palin, alleging the former Alaska governor’s comparatively mild political rhetoric spawned the anger of the man who attempted to murder former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) yet deny that their own vulgar and violent rhetoric is to blame for the violence playing out in our ballparks and neighborhoods. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! When will the hypocrisy end? And – more importantly – when will the stomach-churning liberal rhetoric end?
