Al Franken Teaches Us Why Comedians Cannot Be Trusted As Political Thinkers  

culture, Democrats, Politics
Comedians used to be funny. Al Franken was never funny, but he demonstrates clearly the danger of allowing our comedians to become political actors. In order for the public to have any confidence in their politicians, there must be an assumption of good faith. When a man like Franken can behave reprehensibly and later defend himself with the cheap line: “it was only a joke!” the problem of allowing comedians in politics becomes obvious. A comedian might be laughed at, but they can never be trusted. One cannot put good faith in a man who, upon being found out, will fall back on the claim that he’s primarily a joke maker.

It seems like every day we’re given a new reason to be less trusting and more suspicious of any fact or opinion whose source is the mainstream media or its lick-spittle politicians. The tragic murder of Kate Steinle and the disgusting media circus that allowed her killer to walk free is only the latest assault upon the decency of this nation. As though the liberal insult to justice was not enough, now they are going after Kate Steinle’s memory. Small memorials have been erected on the pier where Kate was murdered while walking with her family. The media has wasted no time denouncing these memorials “Alt-Right” and demanding that they be torn down and desecrated. Kate Steinle was 34…
