Yes to the first part. No to the second, I thought I acted as joke arbiter and debate purist in my first post already. But im not the topic of discussion, we can go back to op's thread
Your exact words:

"I mean if you want to get best protection, you have to throw the fat kid. The skinny one won't catch the bullet.

Or if you know the shooter is alt right, you can send any minority, Jew, gay, handicaped person. They attract Nazi bullet".

So yeah I'd agree that joking about school shooting can be funny

Can we get some kind of source?
From Buzzfeed: Louis C.K. Mocks Parkland Shooting Survivors, Asian Men, And Nonbinary Teens In Leaked Audio

In a later extensive riff about the word "retarded" and how C.K. thinks it is ridiculous that it is now widely viewed as an inappropriate term to call anybody who is mentally disabled or to use as slang because of the connotations, he joked that Jenny would be an appropriate name for a girl with mental disabilities, "or a trans retarded boy."

After some in the audience appeared to be shocked at his extensive joke about people with mental disabilities, C.K. told the crowd: "Fuck it, what are you going to take away, my birthday? My life is over, I don’t give a shit. You can be offended, you can get mad at me."

He then began telling a racist joke about the different sizes of penises between black, white, and Asian men.

"You know why Asian guys have small dicks. ’Cause they’re women. They’re not dudes. They’re all women. All Asians are women. And they have big clits, really big clits, and when they have sex they just stick their clits in each other's pussies and then they procreate using math," said the 51-year-old comedian.

There's a whole other level of leering, lascivious nature to his stand-up/show that will forever be tainted by the creepy ass fucked up shit he did. What I had assumed were his absurdist, satirical exaggerations of his neurosis, relationships, understanding of the world, were his legitimate, genuine feelings/experiences written down plain.

Dude is angry and bitter as hell and this is less of a comedy set and more vitriolic bullshit.

Jesus, reality really is turning into a series of Onion articles. It's like he's just running down a checklist of every hack shock-value comic cliche at this point. He should start all his jokes with "RE:RE:RE:RE:RE:FWD:"

Come on media, what were the Black penis jokes? Too intimidated to recite and print them?
It was just the typical stereotype of black people having large penises. The Asian thing quoted above was in the middle of it for some reason. I think part of his schtick has always been lashing out when jealous in a shocking way, knowing how inappropriate it is.

Interesting how when people get rightfully called out for the fucked up shit they say, their solution is to bail out of the conversation instead of taking responsibility for said shittiness.

It's like Monty Python where the guy gets stoned for blasphemy.



At this point he's saying every offensive thing he can think of because he thinks they can't do any worse to him.

Click the tab that says staff posts at the top and bottom of the page.
Oh. So they're avatars are tagged, special font or background whatever to their posts, and now threadmarks? What's next? We start getting text alerts every time a mod posts?

But whatever. His next Netflix special should be interesting.

Comics like Gervais and CK belong in the 80s / early 90s. Instead of making a joke about how fucked up America is with its gun obsession, he goes after kids who survived a horror he'll never be able to comprehend. It's not comedy, it's just his shitty views in the guise of it. However, everything is a joke and a meme these days, no one has any compassion or empathy.

Glad I listened to this when it popped up in my YouTube feed and before I was told by everyone I shouldn’t find it funny or that I need to explain myself if I find it funny.

You guys could at least try to not be obvious.
Just got to the part of the thread where comedy fans or people in comedy clubs are ‘alt-right’ otherwise I wouldn’t know what ‘you guys’ referred to.

Libertarian socialist more correctly identifies my political views but thanks. I also have a sense of human and understanding making a joke about something doesn’t mean you believe something politically one way or the other.
 
Not only is this shit not funny, its not even comedy. He's literally just shitting on us young folk for trying to get shit done, and feeling that he shouldn't have to address nonbinary folk by what they want, because calling some people they is oh so hard. Fuck this guy!

I used to watch Louis CK a lot because his stand up seemed like satire of creepy males and nut jobs, it felt very ingenious. Then it started to feel like it was all a lot less clever than it sounded and he was basically talking about himself. Which is when I stopped, even if I enjoy his work I can't bring myself to watch any more of him, including his past works that I've enjoyed a lot already.

Anti-fascist and anti-racist since before you were born (most likely) but I like comedy and have thick skin
Sure, sure. How do you feel about the father of one of the Parkland victims telling Louis to fuck off? Guess he’s just a stick in the mud who doesn’t get that comedy is subjective. He should understand humor more.

is " libertarian socialism" like the bizarro world version of a "postmodern neomarxism"? or do the two ideologies cancel out and leave you with a centrist?



(unfortunately, before i could make this joke, i checked wikipedia and libertarian socialism is the actual name of an ideology - apparently it is a historical term that does not account for the contemporary definitional drift of the words libertarian and socialism that has generally been superceded by the term anarchism)

((amusingly, the top definition on urbandictionary begins with "not an oxymoron"))
