This is not the first instance of actual hate speech to be seen, and it certainly won’t be the last.
Actress and producer Ellen Barkin tweeted out (and later deleted those tweets) that she hopes comedian Louis C.K. “gets raped” and “shot at”.
This is in apparent response to the comedian’s leaked audio of a recent comedy routine in which he ripped “gender neutral” millennials and Parkland school shooting survivors for their insane gun control activism.
While C.K.’s routine is certainly out there and not for everyone, it’s simply comedy. But in a day and age when speech is limited and policed heavily, comedy is among the most notorious and saddest victims. For any comedian to make fun of anyone apart from Trump, conservatives and Christ or Christians, that comedian must be rebuked, put to shame, and wished literal rape and death upon.
Any comedian that dares even make fun of a Leftist is someone that ought to be arrested and overall destroyed in the minds of the Left, even if that person tends to be more progressive in general and not a conservative themselves.
But it’s not simply the destruction and enchaining of comedy that destroys a civilized society. It’s both the unending desire to limit speech for anyone that even seemingly disagrees with the collective think-tank of the Left and the casual response to such disagreement coming in the form of the very hate speech these people supposedly fight against.
And while Barkin wound up deleting those tweets, she first made sure to defend them by attacking those who would rebuke her and by lying about the comedian.
“For all of you ready to jump on my back, think for a minute about how Louis C.K. must talk about the women who outed him? What do you think he wishes on them? Do you think he will assault a woman again? Read up on serial sexual assault.”
Louis C.K. did not assault anyone. He was accused of sexual misconduct (and C.K. admitted to it) about masturbating in front of female comedians after he would ask permission to do so. Still not a good thing whatsoever for anyone to do, and C.K. has apologized for it. That’s definitely a bad thing to do, but it’s a far cry from the sexual assault the actress is claiming.
Now, the most interesting part of this thing, in my opinion, comes in what was essentially the actress blowing a lid. I mentioned earlier that she would push back against those who would try to call her out on her poor choice of words. This is what she had to say to them:
“Interesting that most of the aggressive responders to my tweet are anti-choice, anti-science, anti-immigrant, anti-poc (people of color) Christians. I’m a Jew, an eye for an eye has its place for me. This sociopath & serial predator will continue harming. Stay safe while you clap.”
She’s not done: “If all you racist, anti-semitic, woman-hating muthaf**ckers are so distraught over my tweets, why the f**k are you following me? Cuz you’re dumb af. (that means *as f**k).”
I say this is the most interesting part in my opinion because it’s basically a goldmine for me. There’s so much that I can talk about here, even within the larger point of the destruction of civilized society.
First, I find it hilarious that her go-to response to people that are rightfully calling her out for her hate speech is calling people racist, sexist, xenophobes. We on the Right like to make fun of the Left for using this sort of response, but we usually exaggerate how much the Left does this. She’s literally giving the list of things that we make fun of the Left over.
Second, I highly doubt that “an eye for an eye” has its place in this woman. If that were the case, she would not have said what she said and she would not have tried to defend it. If she truly believes in the concept of an eye for an eye, then what exactly does she expect from wishing that someone gets raped and shot at?
Lastly, the reason this also has its part in the destruction of a civilized society is that these very tweets highlight our inability to have a civilized conversation anymore and that the words “gets raped” and “shot at” are being hurled in a serious conversation highlight the fact that we are normalizing this sort of hate speech.
I’m not going to say we never had hate speech in the past, but it’s certainly not progressive to hurl such hateful speech at someone just because you don’t like someone’s comedy routine.
I’ve heard C.K.’s latest comedy routine. Again, it’s definitely out there and I would not recommend audiences younger than 18 to listen to it, but it’s still just comedy.
To react in such a manner is not an indication as to how terrible and offensive C.K.’s routine was, but of how poorly people can take a joke in this day and age, and there is no sign of things getting better in that area.
It’s also an indication that the Left can hurl any sort of hateful speech they want at anyone they want so long as the collective Left is in agreement. Although, this is nothing new either.
People can literally wish death upon the Trump family, upon Christians, Republicans, conservatives all they want with minimal, next to nonexistent, repercussions. So long as the collective Left is in agreement about who can be targeted, hate speech is more than acceptable.
I say this because I remember a story some time ago about a feminist being suspended by Facebook for her stance against transgender women being counted as women. Transgenders are not someone people can negatively talk about in any way, so the feminist, one of the Left’s own people, was punished.
But in this instance, the hateful woman is hateful towards a seemingly acceptable target (seemingly because many other Leftists went bananas over the leaked comedy routine), so her hatred is allowed to carry on.
The reason I say this is all an indication of the destruction of civilized society is because this is the precise language people in the Middle East would use against someone they didn’t like. For example, when Asia Bibi was imprisoned and released years later (oversimplifying things here), people called for her head because she was considered a blasphemer.
Whenever someone does something the Muslims deem unacceptable, the people demand bloodshed, and often enough, they get it.
I draw this comparison between the Muslim world and Barkin’s hateful rhetoric because the Muslim world is not a civilized society (as evidenced by far more things than I have even shared here).
The fact that Barkin spreads hateful words that are so similar to what Muslims would say is an indication of the destruction of a civilized society in America. More-so when taking into account she tweeted those things so casually, went as far as to defend them and call those who would rebuke her as “racists”, etc., and that she ultimately decided to delete those tweets but never apologized for them.
Inwardly, and often outwardly, the Left is no more civilized than the Muslim world. They demand that others obey them and those who refuse are to be targeted and destroyed by any means necessary.
With that last sentence alone, you honestly could not even tell whether I was talking about the Left or Islam.
