Comedian Jerry Seinfeld was a guest on ESPN radio’s the Colin Cowherd Show when the funny man admitted something that many liberals aren’t willing to admit but many comedians are starting to come clean about.
The politically correct culture in our country has run amok and its gotten so bad that Seinfeld won’t even appear on college campuses anymore!
“I hear that all the time. I don’t play colleges, but I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges. They’re so PC.’”
Seinfeld says the youth today don’t understand what it means when they use these politically correct terms so easily. “They just want to use these words: ‘That’s racist;’ ‘That’s sexist;’ ‘That’s prejudice,’” he said. “They don’t know what the hell they’re talking about.”
Seinfeld went on to tell the radio host about a conversation he and his wife had with his teenage daughter which he thought illustrated his point perfectly.
“My wife says to her, ‘Well, you know, in the next couple years, I think maybe you’re going to want to be hanging around the city more on the weekends, so you can see boys. You know what my daughter says? She says, ‘That’s sexist.’”
A few days later Seinfeld appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers and doubled down on his angst with the modern PC culture.
Seinfeld told Meyers that:
They keep moving the line in for no reason. I do this joke about the way people need to justify their cell phone. I need to have it with me, because people are so important. They don’t seem very important the way you scroll through them like a gay French king.
Well, I did this line recently in front of an audience, and you can. Comedy is where you can kind of feel an opinion. They thought, ‘what do you mean gay? What are you talking about gay? What are you doing? What do you mean?’
And I thought, are you kidding me? We can’t even?
I could imagine a time when people would say that is offensive to suggest that a gay person moves their hands in a flourishing motion and you now need to apologize.
This is a creepy PC thing out there that really bothers me.
