    Still don't agree with this type of stuff, she was clearly making a joke/social commentary and I don't think it was malicious.

    That said seeing the left eat their own is strangely satisfying and will hopefully wake some leftists up: it's only a matter of time before the mob turns on you.

    Hopefully Kimmel is next.

    “I think it’s really scary and it’s a very odd thing that it’s invaded the left primarily and the right will mimic it,” she explained.

    She continued: “It’s like if you’re not on board, if you say the wrong thing, if you had a tweet once… everyone is, like, throwing the first stone. It’s so odd. It’s a perversion… It’s really, ‘Look how righteous I am and now I’m going to press refresh all day long to see how many likes I get in my righteousness.”

    Not a fan, never found her particularly funny but this is ridiculous.

    You don't condemn people for shit they did over 10 years ago by employing the standards of today. (Not including serious crime like murder, rape etc)

    I mean hell, will Robert Downey Jr be forced out of future films because of Tropic thunder?

    Just hypocrites.



    Kimmel used to be funny though, so at least he has that over Silverman who has never been funny.

    she was alot more into the virtue signalling before it was pointed at her.



    which was always weird, given her past comedy style. eh, live and learn.

    I have nothing positive to say about her other than that I'm impressed by her intrinsic knowledge of nazi-symbols in urban areas, with that said I think being fired for something like that is weak sauce.

    I'm quoting a direct sentence in your OP?? How can I be anymore on topic? On a scale of 1-10 how warm inside did it make you feel to type that?
