    HAHAHAHA, yeah no

    So not only did he not learn anything, he's decided on the Chris Brown School of Douchebaggery to be an even bigger asshole just as people had moved on from him jerking off in front of his colleagues.

    Yeeeeeeeeeah. :dayton:

    Bonus: apparently he goes on about Asians with short penises, because that exactly the best play with his dick waving history :lol:

    Theory: Having pissed off everybody who isn't a rape apologist, he's learned that MAGAbots are the only remaining demographic he can go for, so he's making a play for them.

    Yeah, I'm done with him.
    I had one little teensy weensy spark of a hope left he could snap out of it, and be his old self again, but if he's gonna drink the MAGA potion, fuck it, he's dead to me.

    Who the fuck do they have to be?

    I could see if it was "I got shot at, and survived, so therefore I'm gonna launch a NASA rocket".
    OR
    "I got shot at, and survived, so therefore I'm gonna play Iron Butterfly through the Large Hadron Collider, and see what comes out".
    OR
    "I got shot at, and survived, so therefore I'm gonna do your grandpa's asshole operation".

    No, none of that, they got shot at, and are taking steps in the political process so no other kids get shot at!!
    They're supposed to shrug that off, and go drop mushrooms!!??
    FUCK!!!
    :mad:

    But yeah, tafkats nailed it, redhats eat that shit up.
    Total pandering.

    I would have to say this is it. He was pretty popular among the incel crowd to begin with, and his routine was always fairly politically incorrect. He is going to try and make money, and they don't care so just go further down the road since he blew his Netflix contract anyway.

    First off, every entertainer plays to their audience. He has always been about offensive humor and these sorts of cracks. Him doing the same routine and not caving to the censors and people at Netflix despite losing money and contracts is actually the opposite of selling out. Selling out would be for him to tone his shit down, entirely change his routines to remove the sexual humor and satisfy the bland, and stopping hios old style in hopes for making a comeback. You can call him a raunchy son of a bitch who offends you and never listen to him, but this is who he is and he is not doing a Cosby and playing a moral and non offensive family comic while raping bitches.

    His audience may have gotten smaller, but they are the same people they always were. LCK has never been the guy catering to the big venues to make a buck.

    IMHO, he's always been an unfunny douche. Take his routine about why we shouldn't complain about smartphones because when he was a kid we didn't have smartphones and they're a "miracle." What this overlooks is that if it hadn't been for people bitching about having to use a phone mounted the wall, we'd never have smartphones. Contrast this with Lewis Black's routine about his phone where he bitches about how it always seems to drop a call and he knows that they can make a better phone because when he was a kid, they could make a phone you could kill a puma with.

    In what might be a record-breaking consensus in the WF Red Room, I will also jump on the "Louis CK is a fuckin' D-bag" train. There are some folks in Hollywood that just don't have any redeeming qualities, in my opinion. This guy is one; Bill Maher and Sarah Silverman are others, but that's not an invitation to an argument- maybe just fodder for a future thread.

    Silverman seems like a genuinely sweet person who initially made it big playing an awful version of herself. CK is turning out to be an awful person who made it big pretending to be "woke" and self-aware. :async:

    That was what we thought was his act. It turns out that is what he was. Some comedians lie about fucked up situations and ideas, and some of them don't. There is comedy in the wisecracking loser routine, but when you turn out to be the same character in your act it is probably less funny overall.

    This. I thought the whole douchey "I'm just sayin'" stuff was an act, like it was meant to provoke for fun. George Carlin did it all of the time. He'd say shit just to piss people off, knowing that it would rile everyone up and make people think about what they truly believed.

    Why does Silverman get a pass? She was far worse than Kevin Hart ever was. He made a statement about how he felt about his kid, and I am pretty sure it came from his comedy routine. But I don't remember him speaking like a 12 year old gamer using gay as an insult for years like Silverman did. Now all of a sudden she is a hero and playing fag hag?

    Dave Chapelle has made some racist, sexist, and gay jokes, and I am not running away from him for observational humor. Lois went further and hurt people instead of just being an act, but plenty of good comedians have offensive jokes.

    But guys like Carlin would give you clues as to where they stood and what was their act. One moment Carlin would be saying how easy it is to piss off feminists ("Which one of you cute little cookies wants to come home with me, cook me dinner and give me a blowjob?") and the next he'd drop a line that every feminist would agree with ("Have you ever noticed that women who are against abortion are ones you wouldn't want to fuck anyway?"). Never saw anything like that with Louis.

    I remember a routine Richard Pryor did about how he got into an argument with his wife and shot up his car. The routine is funny, and his point of view when he tells the story is not one of being a good person in control. If you look at the incident as he tells it he got into a fight with his wife, was probably on something, grabbed a gun and shot his own car so she could not leave. That is a domestic violence horror. When he is doing the routine he is laughing. He is not a moral pillar of society either. Richard did some wrong things. He makes you laugh at it. He made him burning himself up freebasing Coke and almost dying funny.

    I know all of that, but I still love his humor. Sometimes the best humor comes from the fucked up things we have done.

    The problem I have with what is going on with CK is some people are going to laugh. I may not be able to ever separate his humor into a character and find it funny again because I know he did some fucked up shit. However, I am not up for removing his access to self promotion where he has no power to harm a person. I just simply do not like the censorship of watching his routines. I could get it on a bigger network, but on something like Netflix which has all sorts of worse things and Weinstein films, I don't see where that censorship is serving the purpose.

    Louis played it off that he was a scumbag and self depreciated all the time. He poked fun at himself all the time. The problem was that IRL he was arrogant and the women were not there of their free will. Women had to take it because he held the access that would help them, and it seems he would also work against them if they did not.

    Look at the creators of south park. Have you seen how they acted in orgasmo and basketball? One of them is cartman. They write the scenarios cartman does. It all comes from their minds. If they did that shit in real life that would not be funny. It is when the act comes into real life that there is a problem, not the character itself.

    It wasn't funny. :marathon:

    He may have been better off making fun of the coward cops who stood by and did nothing along with their bumbling idiot of a Sheriff who we now know changed the policy from "shall" to "may" in regards to entering an active shooter scene. That's one bastard that shouldn't still be a Sheriff.

    Odd, too, that in light of this attitude and the SCOTUS ruling that citizens have no right to police protection, the mental retards and fascists in this country still want to strip the right of armed self defense from the law-abiding. Well, not on my watch. Molon Labe, motherfuckers. Come and take them. :sniper:

    CK would say awful things for shock value, but usually there was some sort of reasonable and progressive point attached to it. Stuff about how men are horrible to women and society treats it like no big deal. "There's a shirt called a wife beater, and no one gives it a second thought. Can I wear child murder pants?"

    Now I'm thinking he had a silent collaborator helping him polish his act and make him sound less monstrous. :shrug:

    Then we go to reality. The cops show up to take your guns and you surrender them without a fight because the things they will take away like your iPhone, TV, comfortable bed, or life are more valuable to you than your gun. You are not saving any of us with your gun. You are not a hero. You are not going to win a shootout with the police with your gun. The only thing your fighting might do is get your face on the TV as they tell us how the police put you into a grave for shooting at them.

    Now take your underwear off your head and calm the fuck down Beavis.

    It's not about guns per se, it never was, and that statement is the most blatant display of ignorance on this entire topic I've ever seen- dangerously so, if enough people actually believe it. It's born of your own values: because all the things you list are more important to you personally than your own freedom. They aren't to me. And it's not just that they aren't more important to me than my own freedom, they're not more important to me than YOUR freedom. That's what people like you never get about people like me, who swore an oath once upon a time. The difference between me and people like Anna is that I believe in it with every fiber of my being. To her and people like Anc it was just a meal ticket.

    I never said I was going win. I just said 'come and take them.' If you think it's going to be me against my son (now an LEO who's a bigger gun nut than me), you really don't understand anything, cupcake. ;) Better take a harder look at national news on this topic.

    Your son is the only LEO around? I don't live in the middle of nowhere needledick. It would be highly unlikely having a son on the police force would save you around here.

    I do understand enough not to need to cling to my gun because the world is too rough for me. But the world does need sniveling cowards like yourself.

    You obviously don't get it.

    There it is: the inevitable personal attack. The RR never disappoints.

    I don't think you understand the underlying principle I was driving at. Most Sheriffs in the country are on my side, not yours. Research it.

    Well, once upon a time, one of us wrote a blank check to the American people offering his life for his country. Anna and Anc did that, whatever their personal motivations, and nobody can ever take that away from them- that's why no matter how much I disagree with them on any given topic, their opinion will weigh more than yours ever will- they backed theirs up with a willingness to do something for their country and their people beyond their own wants and desires- something you've never done. So you don't get to call anyone a coward- not until you put yourself between home and the war's desolation. Put up or shut up, you fucking punk. Action, not words.

    Yes, a personal attack on an obvious trolling dipshit in the red room. Deal with it fucko.

    If a sheriff is ordered to take your gun you will lose it. I am pretty sure the police seize guns all the time, look it up.

    As for your personal opinion about things the military people say, I don't have your idiocy. I do not automatically assume someone is right or smart because they served. About the best I will say is if they are speaking of life in the service or their experience I would take their word over someone who has not served. But nothing about being in the military makes you automatically right, or even more likely than someone else to be right. That idea is stupid.

    Oh, and yes you are a coward. You are a sniveling coward who needs a gun to feel safe when he is not under attack. I have walked through the worst places this country has to offer. I did not do it with a gun to protect me, and I did it in a dress. Any day you want to step the fuck up with that much courage, feel fucking free. So you roaming around with your privilege and your gun squaking like a chicken because you are afraid someone is going to come for you does not impress me one single little bit fucko.

    So take your little needle dick and your little gun, and remember I don't fear your cowardly ass. I also know that if there is ever a reason for law enforcement to take your gun you will say yes sir and hand it over without a shot. You are not brave enough to stand up and die for your guns, and probably not stupid enough to either.
