SNL sinks to new low, mocks veteran and GOP candidate who lost his eye in Afghanistan

SNL sinks to new low, mocks veteran and GOP candidate who lost his eye in Afghanistan

“You may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie”

https://youtu.be/ukbtA3df8BI

Saturday Night Live used to be funny.  Remember Roseanne Roseannadanna or Chevy Chase being politically incorrect on Weekend Update and the catchphrases that permeated our culture:  “Jane, you ignorant slut,” “You look mahvelous,” and “could it be . . . Satan?”?

SNL is no longer funny.  Case in point, this week they mocked Navy SEAL veteran Dan Crenshaw, a Republican congressional candidate who lost an eye in an IED explosion in Afghanistan.

Newsbusters reports:

Since the Vietnam War, liberals have been known for their great disdain for America’s service members, despite their efforts to hide it. During NBC’s latest edition of Saturday Night Live, that disdain poked its ugly head out in the form of supposed comedian Pete Davidson mocking Republican congressional candidate and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw about the eye he lost to an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan, “or whatever” according to the funny man.

The vile attack came during the SNL’s faux news segment “Weekend Update” where Davidson was mocking multiple Republican politicians for their looks. The comedian stated he’d “realized there are some pretty gross people running for office this year”. When a picture of Crenshaw was put on the screen, co-star Michael Che blurted out: “Oh, come on, man!”

“Hold on,” Davidson told him. “You may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie,” he ridiculed Crenshaw to the uproarious laughter of the liberal crowd. “I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war or whatever.” [emphasis in original]

He goes on to include a Democrat so that he “looks fair.”  It doesn’t work.

Here’s the clip:

For his part, Crenshaw responded with class.

Crenshaw further told TMZ that he does not want and is not owed an apology for this insensitive “joke.” Instead, he says we need to “get away from the culture of apology-demanding every time someone misspeaks.”

TMZ reports:

Pete Davidson and ‘SNL’ don’t owe GOP congressional candidate, Dan Crenshaw, a mea culpa for making a crack about his war-caused disability … according to the man himself.

We spoke with Dan — who’s running for an open seat in Texas’ second congressional district — and, somewhat surprisingly, he shoots down the idea that Pete and co. must issue an apology to him because they made an insensitive joke about his missing eye.

. . . . One person who’s not outraged is Dan, who tells us he wants society to get away from the culture of apology-demanding every time someone misspeaks.

Check out his take — it’s quite nuanced, and he’s definitely taking the high road.

Watch:

A class act indeed.

Absolutely despicable. These people, whose right to speak like this, and make fools of themselves, is there only because of brave people like Dan Crenshaw and those who did not make it back. I search for adjectives to describe my disgust, but I have failed.

SNL hasn’t been funny in 30 years.

    Even more, closer to 40 years. Wasn’t it 79 or 80 that Belushi, Ackroyd and Murray left? That’s when I quit watching.

I’m sad only because I can’t vote for Dan Crenshaw, and I have to vote for the idiot who is my congressman.

But I will…

    “…and I have to vote for the idiot who is my congressman. But I will…

    I feel the same way, and let me guess – your Congressman is Duncan D. Hunter in San Diego….? He’s my Congressman as well if so, but I’ll be voting for him nonetheless just to keep that chair Republican. Besides, I wouldn’t vote for the progeny of two generations of PLO terrorists (Grandfather was part of the Israeli Olympic team slaughter in Munich, Germany), Ammar Yasser Najjar, no way no how. And, Duncan Hunter and his wife may be indicted but he hasn’t been convicted of a single solitary thing – yet.

Is that show still on?

I was around when SNL was new.

The show always blew goats, right from the beginning.

Chevy Chase staggering around with his puerile President Ford is dumb and clumsy shtick. Puh-lease . . . Never clever, and old after about two seconds. (And I was no Ford fan—but I know painfully unfunny when I see it.)

Samurai Tailor was passable, but nothing to base a reputation on.

But I agree, this was both monumentally unfunny and just plain low. Gutter low. Dogshit-on-the-bottom-of-your-shoes low. Have I mentioned lately how much I detest these people?

    SNL degenerated into political advocacy. It’s too far gone, and about as funny and relevant as the porcine amy schumer or that other blonde idiot claiming she’s funny.

    Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo were hilarious on SNL.

      I forgot about them! Yep, so funny. Eddie Murphy’s “passing” skits with him getting special bonus “white” gets was funny then because it was absurd; now it would simply be seen as documentary by the humorless, rabid leftie hordes.

      The cast with Mike Myers, Dana Carvey and Phil Hartman was terrific. SNL is totally driven by it’s cast members. When they are good the show is good. When they’re not it sucks. I haven’t watched in years but it sounds like the current cast isn’t very good.

This NPC looks a lot like Dennis Rodman – only uglier and less useful. (Rodman, it turns out, was a great basketball player, and apparently, a helpful in getting North Korea a little bit out of the its madness.

May this arrogant dumbass one day experience – and it couldn’t be too soon – Dan’s loss.

Btw, anyone of these dumb NPCs who deny Nazi Germany was socialist, would be wise to read this:

Give Davidson a break. His career is over and he is just not very bright. Look at him. He’s the poster child for all types of abstinence – especially drugs.

He is still wearing the clothing he broke out the asylum with.

Stay classy, SNL.

WOW

Univision Reporter attempts to paint an injured white man as a racist for wanting to America to defend its borders.

His friend, who happens to be a black man, stands up and tells the reporter “what’s what” about racism leaving the reporter SPEECHLESS

    Progress of anti-nativism and collateral damage at both ends of the bridge and throughout. Note, Obama’s trail of tears was formed for lack of security and safety on the ground, press and NGO cover-ups, quasi-religious organizations’ profit and followers, Democrat demand to gerrymander the vote, population replacement (i.e. reduce visible collateral damage from Planned Parenthood and selective-child policy), and business preference for high-density population centers.

SNL is Pro-Choice, selective, opportunistic, and notably politically congruent (“=”).

SNL, and indeed the Left in general operates on that assumption that they have the right and power to attack the rest of the country with impunity, AND that if the rest of the country wins that all the attacks will automatically be forgiven and forgotten. That assumption may not hold forever.

Seems to me this shallow idiot has a lot of hate for himself, when you hate yourself you allow projection of that hate to spew on everyone else.

I remember the days when comedians were funny, for far too many of these people who call themselves comedians these days, they are not funny. Politics has always been a target of comedy, but these creeps today seem to think it gives them license to be tasteless and cruel and vile, rather than funny.

SNL had produced some pretty funny stuff in the earlier years, but they have long outlived their time. They have always delved into politics, but they now allow their hatred to drive them over the cliff.

This particular person puzzles me, as I cannot figure out how he ever got a gig as a funny man. Other than his strange appearance, he can’t even tell a joke that his elementary school friends would laugh with him about. And he truly thinks he is hilarious. He is just sad.

I think there is a place in the world for tasteless humor but the thing about this bit is…. its not even funny. Not even close. That the audience is laughing just shows how low expectations for SNL are these days.

I don’t believed the point is made strongly eneouuu7gh. If a word is repeated LOUDLeY AND SLOWLY ENOUGH it becomes the truth.

    I am in a very weird situation and I don’t know how scared I should be. Yesterday I thought I called a mature woman who, believe it or not, I went elephant hunting with in 2009. I have the DVD. But I when I rang her for what I thought was for old times sake I got what I believe to be a ten year old girl. I couldn’t believe it. I called back. Same thing. So I called back a third time and left a message.

    I’m thinking of trying again, as it’s programmed into my phone. How can it all of a sudden misdirect? If I get the child, whom I never conducted myself in a vile way, my plan is to ask to speak to her parent and explain myself. Is that a plan? This is a number that has worked since 2005.

    I still can’t believe it. It’s staring me in the face, but I can’t believe it.

That’s MY CONGRESSMAN!

a pitiful attempt to dishonor a true warrior–davidson, like so many of those in the ” entertainment ” industry, has no honor himself, has led a mediocre life at best and must disparage those who are truly honorable in order to get any attention at all–otherwise NO ONE would listen to him

crenshaw and his colleagues are and will always be the real deal–they don’t need or seek attention–they go about their tasks calmly, risking their very lives to keep us safe

such men and women are unconcerned about the opinions of alleged entertainers

I don’t think there’s been a Congressman with an eyepatch since right after the Civil War. Dan Crenshaw is breaking ground both historically and among the marginalized blind community. Is that a decent joke?
Seriously, this ass on SNL didn’t even manage to “land” his joke. He is mentally ill, on drugs, and needs help. SNL has some talented people, but their writing has been garbage. They have some great bits making fun of conservatives: Don Jr. and Eric are hilarious. But they are so blinded by hatred, that they cannot manage to make a joke about the infinitely mockable Democrats.

Fuzzy, the cast of SNL hasn’t been funny for decades. And also, they haven’t been funny for at least that long. I haven’t been able to see (yes, I did go there; you want to see my ID card, as I am a member) why they still exist as a franchise.

One Saturday I woke up in the Batchelor’s Officer’s Quarters onboard what was then known as Master Jet Base Oceana. I couldn’t freaking move. I am laying their like an iguana. The Navy had made angry. I wanted to be an EOD diver. I was hanging around with the EOD tpese

My computer locked up on me. Anyway, I was hanging with the EOD types (odd, isn’t it, that when travelling a few hundred thousand tons of aviation ordnance and gas you’d have bomb disposal experts handy), They kept telling me they needed people. They convinced me. I took and passed the diver qualification test during our next port visit in the Philippines (again, that will tell you how old I am).

So I get back to Miramar and give the EOD detailing officer a call and ask just how soon this desperate group of people can welcome me into their loving arms. And the answer is, never.

I’m really looking forward to the idea that at the end of every day I’ll know if I’m a totas screw-up or not.

But as it turns out if you want to be EOD in the Navy you have to first become a Surface Warfare Officer so you can command a minesweeper or submarine rescue vessel.

But I could go straight into the teams. It wasn’t what I really wanted, but I’m like, “OK, f****rs, if that’s how you want to play it, I’m game. So I spent the next year in Panama doing counter narc0tics. Running with the coatimundis and hauling my fat @$$ a mile a day through a swimming pool. I am not a natural in the water. I’m OK at the survival stroke and drown-proofing. But don’t look at me for any sort of speed. It’s painful to just watch me swim. Imagine dragging Montana through the Pacific. Yeah.

So I wake up, and now my shoulders sound like bowls of rice crispies. I can’t even roll over to fetch the remote. BET is OK, for some things. But an entire weekend? Like I said, I’m laying there like a toad on a freezing New England morning. Fortunately by Monday I could shift myself to make it to the conference.

But all I could think about on Saturday and Sunday while I was staring at the TV was, “Well, it looks like I’m not going to be a SEAL.”

What is SNL? I don’t know. I don’t want to know.
