Jimmy Kimmel, who has been lauded as the “conscience of America,” has an interesting past. Prior to becoming a social justice warrior on his weeknight comedy show on ABC, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel was the co-host of The Man Show on Comedy Central.
The Man Show regularly contained what Kimmel would likely attack as misogynistic content if it were made today. It also hosted its fair share of racially charged content. A recently unveiled video clip from 2000 shows Kimmel impersonating black NBA player Karl Malone while wearing black face.
In the video, he stereotypes black people as unintelligent, mispronouncing a number of words throughout the video. He is also in black face, something that would make Kimmel’s own head explode these days.
The unearthing of this video is relevant in recent days following the cancellation of the reboot of Roseanne Barr’s show Roseanne on ABC, also home of Kimmel’s late night program.
Rosanne was cancelled due to a Tweet from Barr about former adviser to President Barack Obama Valerie Jarett stating:
“If muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”
Despite the fact that Barr has no history of racism, it was immediately attacked as racist, without even welcoming a response. She eventually did respond, stating that it was a joke, which was not enough for ABC not to cancel her show.
Put this in comparison with Kimmel, who has a history of racially charged humor, and has continued that history by making insensitive jokes about first lady Melania Trump’s accent.
The double standard in this situation is extremely clear. If you aren’t a leftist, the bar for acceptable jokes is much lower than those who call themselves “progressive.” Roseanne is just one of many countless cases of character assassination by vindictive leftists masking their hatred with “social justice.”
When will ABC cancel Kimmel’s show?
British Police Officer CRIMINALLY CHARGED for Sharing George Floyd Meme in WhatsApp Group
Free speech is dead.
A British police officer has been criminally charged over a George Floyd meme he allegedly shared with his colleagues in a WhatsApp group.
“Sergeant Geraint Jones, aged 47, is charged with sending the image on 30 May last year by means of a public electronic communications network, an offence contrary to section 127 of the Communications Act 2003,” a watchdog from the Independent Office for Police Conduct announced. “An altered image of George Floyd’s arrest in Minneapolis was shared within a WhatsApp group that included a number of other police officers and staff.”
“Our investigation began in June 2020 following a referral from the force,” the watchdog continued. “At its conclusion in October we sent our investigation report to the Crown Prosecution Service, which has authorized the charge.”
Sergeant Jones is scheduled to appear in court on January 28. He has been suspended from duty since June.
It’s no secret that free speech is all but dead in the United Kingdom. British elites stand out in particular for their fervent belief in neoliberal globalism and veneration of its secular saints. Their society encourages people to snitch and tattle on their fellow citizens to a higher degree than most any other Western nation.
George Floyd is also one of the neoliberal order’s foremost secular saints. Anything you say about him that isn’t equivalent to hero-worship will get you put on notice. Criticizing the intensity of his veneration and the Black Lives Matter movement itself are sufficient to get you labeled as a depraved racist and fired from your job—even in the United States.
Don’t think that hate speech laws aren’t possible in America either. If a majority of Americans and legal scholars in a decade or two come to believe that the First Amendment doesn’t protect “hate speech,” who’s to say that the laws won’t be changed to reflect that?
