Louis CK on Parkland shooting survivors and the non-binary

I don’t know if he’s groping around trying to find his voice again or what, but I don’t think this (NSFW) is his new sweet spot, unless he’s gone MAGA.

He strikes me as mostly cynical. Comics need a dose of that, but it wears thin in the long run. Especially if it’s revealed you’re a jerk in real life.

Next.

Why not both? (a jerk and disturbed). That sounds like Comedian (and Presidential) material.



San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing."
-- Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."
-- Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

I wouldn't mind if he was still in hiding.

Months ago consensus on the matter was that he'd go full-on entitled-white-male-a-hole rather than show restraint and appreciation for those he'd hurt and offended.

Feels like a missed opportunity.

Like when Tesla dipped over Musk's public appearances when all indicators were that the company was about to break records.

Shoulda' put money on it.

My guess is he’s become the comedic version of the old trope,
‘What do you call a liberal that’s just been mugged?’
‘A conservative.’

He was cynic, social critic and curmudgeon who had a handle on the difference between punching up and punching down. Who knew the difference between playing off the flaws and excesses any group has and being a bully.

He was caught and called out by those who were allies and he’s sounding like he may have lost his compass in a mish mash of anger, guilt, shame and embarrassment. He may be listening to friends and associates serving up the ‘comedy never apologizes’ slant with a dose of, ‘People don’t understand how hard it is being a genius. I’m seeing a lot of that online.

Who knows. I’ll pass though, on what he’s serving up.

I’ll pass as well. Unfortunately he’ll have enough to support himself.

That's not "unfortunate." It's compassionate.

He's an a-hole. That doesn't mean that we have to be a-holes.

He shouldn't be trying to entertain people in that fashion, but the guy is still a human being.

Eh? Do we need to provide him with a stage? Would he want for anything if he never worked again? How do the women he abused feel about his return?

No.

But the man is entitled to try and make a living. Maybe he can sell gold coins on late-night TV.

He was shotgunning a lot of hot takes (NSFW). Parkland survivors, LGBTQ, Asian men, etc.

Someone on twitter put it that his new demographic is 13 year old 4chan ‘edgelords’.

He certainly does know how to get his name back in the lights, rather than fade into obscurity. I know when I’m being played.

.......the same goes for others like Weinstein, Spacey, Moonves, Lauer, etc.......they may not be able to get any future work but should have enough to live in luxury for a long time......
