It's amazing that the Left thinks their most effective messengers are comedians. But John Oliver's latest rant against Ted Cruz, complete with profane poetry borrowing a page from Dr. Seuss, shows comedians are better at angrily emoting than they are at enlightening.
On Sunday, he ended the poem by calling Cruz a "f--king knob." In 2019, his first poem asked Cruz to "suck my balls." Is that racist? Is it sexual harassment? Left-wing media outlets love Oliver's attempts to "own the conservatives."
Sometimes, Oliver is a blatant hypocrite. For example, he inveighs against tax breaks for the rich and yet...Oliver had a tax attorney set up two revocable trusts, one for him and one for his wife, to hide the couple’s purchase of a snazzy $9.5 million 39th floor Manhattan penthouse with "panoramic views of the city skyline." They "used a tax loophole created by Donald Trump himself back in the 1970s.”
Plus: CBS Sunday Morning admits pressures on free expression from left & right, but big liberal spin emerges with GOP pushing how many bills are pushing "Educational Gag Orders" (a la the leftist group PEN America) and "the spirit of McCarthy" is alive and well in the schools!
