It is okay to like different comedians on tv. Political humor is a mainstay


of night time television. I like different comedians that people in my family don't like. I like to laugh at Trevor Noah's jokes on The Daily Show, or Comedy Central specials with Gabriel Iglesias from Long Beach who talks about growing up Latino --- but my husband thinks those two are vulgar.
( They are rarely vulgar, but my husband thinks so). Everyone has different taste in comedians.
That's fine.

My anger today is directed towards EBN because 1) he laughed about a horrible situation in California which affected my city and called people SJW. ( a derogatory term for civil rights workers). He knows nothing about California, but he assumes he does.
Then mid-week, he said that LeBron James would probably speak up on behalf of the guy who mowed down the people at the Wisconsin parade. The guy is a tweaker ( meth head) who was already out on bail, which he should not have been. I asked EBN, why should LeBron James comment on that?
EBN's remark is a dog whistle. A dog whistle says just enough to make the racial point it is intended to make, but it stops short, so that the joker can have plausible deniability. Dog whistles push the envelope, which is what he intended to do.
Today, I get up and make breakfast for our relative who is here for Thanksgiving. I get some chores done. Then I turn on the computer and see EBN commanding and threatening Democrats to "do yourselves a favor" and "take 8 minutes from your life", to learn about messaging from Bill Maher. But I don't want to do that. It is the tone of EBN --- the commanding, sneering, overbearing, aggressive personality. I know what Maher feels about culture wars issues and so-called wokeness. I just disagree w/ him. Sure, he has a right to say that. But he's a libertarian, not a spokesman for the Democratic Party.
