When our comedians blow it

Here’s the whole problem with these arguments about bad liberals misusing free speech:

  1. There’s a guy in the White House who campaigned saying far more misogynistic and racist stuff that was broadcast all over the world, but nothing happened to him except winning the election.
  2. There are hundreds of radio heads and bloggers saying even worse stuff, even throwing out hints and code words that advocate violence, and nothing happens to them.
  3. Every branch of government is dominated by a party whose primary goal (after cutting taxes) is to increase institutional racism and sexism with every horrible law they pass, or uphold in court.

If there are no consequences for the people who are really hurting the world, why are we even focusing on a couple of comedians who cross the line?
