I'm not across it as much as you clearly are, but I do know politically un-pc comedians are, as a matter of routine, having to justify their jokes/sets to thought police in their audience (why you would pay to go and watch someone whose views you find offensive is a mystery to me) and, sadly, to mainstream left-leaning comedians. Left-leaning is mainstream these days, which is a sign of the hyper-sensitive times, sadly. People are out there actually looking to find offence.LOL - imagine believing edgy, offensive and tasteless humour doesn't exist in 2019 (and can't still be very, very funny). Ever watched Another Period? Anything by PFFR? David Cross? Anthony Jeselnik? Veep? People can still have a sense of humour, mate, calm down.
What happened to Louis CK is disgrace. I'm a big fan of Bill Burr and he talks about this in his podcasts frequently, the issue of censorship.
I'm not suggesting that I get off on racist/sexist humour. But I am saying that people are entitled to express their opinion (Israel Folau case in point). I find it utterly ridiculous that in 2019 organisations like the AFL and Rugby Union take a more serious stance on opinions than on-field thuggery, actual cases of domestic violence, common assaults, etc. Folau gets his contract torn up for expressing an opinion. Players in other codes have committed criminal assaults and yet 'play on'.
