In today’s world, it seems that very many people who have some sort of popularity talk about Trump negatively, either attacking him personally, or his family, or what have you. So it is rare when someone with relative or massive popularity isn’t jumping in to bash the POTUS. Seemingly, comedian Kevin Hart has been making a point not to attack Trump, which “comedienne” Kathy Griffin saw as unacceptable.
In an interview with USA Today, Griffin called out Hart for not attacking Trump: “I do feel like this is such an anxiety-ridden time for everyone that there is a thirst for all kinds of comedy. And look, if you want to not hear about Trump at all, go see Kevin Hart. He doesn’t even mention Trump. I personally think that’s a p**** move because he’s a black man. But I guess he’s selling more tickets than I ever will.”
Boy, am I gonna have fun with this one.
Let’s go bit by bit, here. First, this is not an anxiety-ridden time for everyone. With record low unemployment across the board, rising wages and 18-year highs in consumer confidence, the only people who have anxiety over this are those who oppose Trump. Griffin is among the only people who have anxiety over Trump being President at this point. Much of America is already being made great again and people are living better off today than at any point during the Obama presidency.
Second, how dumb is this woman? Attacking someone else for not following the herd in attacking Trump won’t gain her any fans. Frankly, I’d be surprised if she even has any left, after that Trump-beheading stunt she pulled. If anything, she comes off as a bully, wanting to force Hart to attack the President, when he clearly has no intentions of doing so, given that he hasn’t up to this point.
Third, what does his race have to do with anything? It’s a “p**** move because he’s a black man.” What does that even mean? I understand what she is calling him, but THAT is the reason she’s doing so? Because he’s a black man that won’t attack Trump?
At this point, Griffin’s racism is entirely exposed. Just because Hart is black he’s supposed to align with Democrats’ way of thinking? Well, pardon the black people that choose not to be slaves of the Left. And pardon a celebrity who does not wish to alienate half his audience by attacking Trump.
Which brings me to my last point: of course he’s going to sell more than Griffin. He’s actually talented. Beyond that, he clearly does not wish to alienate half of his audience by attacking the POTUS. He wants his comedy to be something that everyone in the room can laugh about. He is precisely the kind of person many people want out of entertainers.
What do I mean by that? In the past year or so, ESPN has suffered massive hits in ratings. Why? Largely because of people like Jemele Hill and other ESPN hosts who constantly bring up the President and attack him. ESPN is about sports, not politics. People who watch ESPN tend to want to get away from the subject of politics altogether. They just want to focus on the world of sports, so when they see people like Jemele Hill attacking the President, people tune out and change the channel.
Similarly, when actors attack and berate Trump, those who voted for Trump decide to not watch their movies or t.v. shows anymore. Part of the reason Roseanne was so popular was because the lead character was a Trump supporter (albeit still a liberal).
The reality is that a lot of people, most likely the majority of the country, like Donald Trump. So seeing Robert De Niro shouting obscenities in front of high schoolers and at the Tony awards causes those who like Trump to not want to watch De Niro’s content.
And do you want to know what’s funny? I wouldn’t be surprised if Kevin Hart’s shows started selling more due to this callout by Griffin. I know that Griffin attacking Hart makes me want to watch Kevin Hart’s content. Now, whether I’ll like it or not depends on how funny Hart is. But if I know for certain that he’s not going to attack Trump, whether he agrees with Trump or not, whether he likes Trump or not, I’m more willing to watch him.
Because I don’t really care what an entertainer’s opinion is. While they are more than free to speak their own opinion, I would rather watch their content not knowing what their opinions are.
That’s why I defend Laura Ingraham when she told LeBron James to “shut up and dribble”. While he does have every right to speak his mind, I couldn’t care less what his opinion on Trump is. I just want to watch great basketball. I just want to watch one of the greatest players of all time drag his sorry team to the NBA Finals. The same goes for the equally “woke” Steve Kerr, Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors. I just want to watch a great team play great team-oriented basketball to dominate their opponents.
So when it comes to Kevin Hart, if and when I begin watching his shows, I can be happy knowing that it will only be about entertainment and not “being woke”.
And one last point about Griffin’s racism: why would Hart attack a President who has helped the black community more than the country’s first black President? Seriously, with how low unemployment rates are for African-Americans, and with tax cuts helping out about 90% of the country, what reason does Hart, or any African-American have to attack the POTUS? His supposed racism? He has never said anything actually racist, at least in the time that I have been paying attention to the things he’s been saying.
And no, calling down-trodden countries “s**tholes” is not racist. Calling illegal immigrants criminals is not racist. They ARE criminals. Even if they don’t rape or murder or hurt anyone, their very status as an illegal immigrant makes them criminals. Oh, and calling MS-13 animals is only insulting to animals.
So the Left has absolutely nothing to call Trump on, or at least, nothing real. They can spin whatever they want out of his words, but anyone who’s paying a little bit of attention can tell that he’s not the racist demon the Left makes him out to be.
In fact, Griffin has said more racist things from that one interview with USA Today alone than Trump has.
What does she think Hart is supposed to do now? Obey his “massa” Ms. Griffin? Do as he is told by his Leftist slave-owner?
This is the kind of racism that I expect out of the Left, to be honest. But the thing is that she says it so casually and as though it’s not hugely racist. He’s black so he’s supposed to attack Trump? He’s not her slave. He’s not the Left’s slave. Whether he is a liberal is irrelevant at this point. He doesn’t have to do anything the Left orders him to do.
21st Century to Kathy Griffin: you Democrats can’t own slaves anymore. You already lost that “right” after you lost the Civil War.
“’There is no peace,’ says the Lord, ‘for the wicked.’”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
