Watch the late night TV comedians and listen to the audience response to anything negative said about Trump, conservatives, religion, etc. Watch Oprah or Maher or Whoopie. They all say some outrageous, but predictable slam at the right and people cheer and applaud because everyone knows it's accepted leftist gospel. I like comedy and poking fun at the opposition is a fine tradition, but it's gotten snarky, vicious and hateful. Yes, both side do it, but the preponderance of comedy on TV and in the movies and theaters is aimed at the right and much has gone beyond satire and into hatefulness. Guess it reflects the lowering of standards in our society in general.
It was funny years ago when it was satirical, but it's not that anymore, it's blatant hateful shots. I really feel like the extreme hatred began half way through Bush 2's term, and has continued to spiral south since. That's why I stopped watching the late night shows, SNL, etc a long time ago. Everyone has political views, and they are always quick to inject them, appropriate or not. That goes back to the players kneeling, I don't dispute their right to have views, but I find it completely inappropriate to use the platform provided to them by their employers to express those views, particularly when it's at the expense of the customers (fans).
