commented on Gallagher Is a Paranoid, Right-Wing, Watermelon-Smashing Maniac
A lot of comedians make jokes like this, and HAVE been making jokes like this for a looong time, he just rolls them all into one.
I do hate all the stupid spiteful jokes that aren't even jokes, but just snide remarks about society. It's annoying. I paid to laugh, not cringe and feel awkward.
Some of that stuff was overtly racist, though, and a little beyond what other comedians do.
But he's not, as you say, "a paranoid, delusional, right-wing religious maniac"... he's pretty much homophobic and racist. That does not make one a right-wing religious maniac, it makes them bigoted. Right-wing does not mean "cruel" like people think it does these days.
