    alas the standing of stand-ups like Mr Burr, and many other modern ‘comedians’, was mightily diminished by his appearance next to the consummate old-time funny man, Jerry Seinfeld in ‘Comedians in cars getting coffee’. Judging by his SNL 7 minutes that decline is continuing apace.

    I don’t know what I think about that. Bill Burr is strongly on the side of the leftists. He hates Christianity, loves black people and his future lineage is black.

    He obviously doesn’t like white women, also why he didn’t marry one. That rant was 80% his wife’s input.

    I don’t see how white women are taking over the Woke Movement, unless his wife, being a black leftist, is noticing Jewish Female Leftists for the first time.

  6. Perhaps this is sign of a new trend. With the Trump defeat almost in the bag, the MSM can ease off on the nonstop censoring and propaganda and allow a smidgeon of open discussion and alternative perspectives.

  7. Wow, this is what passes for edgy? Laugh about Moranis being “sucker punched” without mentioning the who and why. Pick on White women for appropriating the role of the real oppressed. I will admit that launching into the LGBTQWERTYUIOPTTY was a bit edgy, but he did it in a light-hearted way, and then immunised himself by pointing out how they had it better than the poor ADOS crowd. Yeah, real edgy. Glad they opened it up to the world so I didn’t have to bother to VPN in to see it.

  10. He said what he thought. The way we used to do things in America. Applied to everyone, regardless of ideological commitment.

    We’ve now got a two-decade wide cohort of college educated Americans who are prissy bluestockings, terrified of laughing at anything that hasn’t been approved as a target of humor. Indeed, much of what passes for humor amongst them is merely scorn in demonstrative forms. Unfortunately, the college educated are more than half the population in that age group, so, if the humor deficiency persists for a full generation longer (thanks to what looks like unshakeable ideological and dogmatic pedagogy) we may well end up as a really dull and boring people and culture.

  11. The audience won’t laugh at anything that pokes fun at Leftists. They’ve reached a level of narcissism that makes comedy impossible.

    It’s prevalent among young gays, women and liberal Whites/Jews. So, I’m guessing the parenting style of Boomers really did lead to creating monster snowflakes. And it was compounded by schools calling any non-fashionable opinon “hate” and teaching them to destroy the non-conformer.

    These Orwellian Creeps are taking power in key areas of culture.

    Exactly. All his criticism of the left is just that they’re not sufficiently deferential to blacks. White women are taking attention away from blacks. Gays are taking attention away from blacks. The pro Rick Moranis getting beat joke is essentially heading off any criticism of BLM and saying that we should be celebrating the rise in black criminality as an expression of authenticity and righteous rage. Even his “defense” of John Wayne/ “attack” on cancel culture is really just saying that all white people of that generation as horrible racists and that cancelling individual white people just takes away from that broader truth.

    He has it completely backwards. The left gives TOO much attention to black issues. This is not the kind of criticism of the left wing that I can get behind.

  13. @PhysicistDave

    Are right wingers so pathetically desperate for anyone with any actual status to make criticisms of the left that they have to latch onto internecine leftists disputes over the optimal way to dispossess white male christians, close their eyes and pretend that the enemy of their enemy is their friend?

    The audience is very small, and they are being paid to end-run rules against public performances put in place for COVID … in other words, they are employees.

    So the reaction cannot be compared to that of a pre-COVID SNL audience, making it harder to read. I imagine that audience members sometimes don’t want to be first to laugh, so a smaller number of people will act as a laugh range restrictor.

    The traditional SNL audience is roughly 1/3rd fans of the musical guest, who are encouraged to sleep on the sidewalk and be really amped by showtime (which is why, no matter however what-the-hell-is-this the ordinary viewer’s reactions, the musicians always get wild applause), 1/3rd tourists for whom this is the highlight of their trip to NY, and one third locals who are really into SNL. The show used to comp a lot of celebrities in its early days, but they were too sophisticated and unenthused, so they got dropped in favor of people who really, really want to be at the heart of show biz in Midtown Manhattan at 11:30 PM on Saturday night.

    You can’t say Lorne Michel is bad at his job.

    I liked it, and I believe the reason he was canceled is the same reason comedians don’t do college campuses anymore. The same liberal infection that decimated the campus has now infiltrated the television viewing audience.

    Thank you for putting into words what I was feeling

    All the commentators here thinking he’s breaking up the coalition of the fringes are very wrong

  22. The unique about Bill Burr is that he will attack groupthink and PC dogma. He mocks audiences for being uptight. Points out how silly gays are for acting so oppressed. As far as White women go, he’s attacking the LIBERAL White women who attack White men. Not all Karens are liberal, but most are.

    So yeah he’s probably as anti-White as anyone, but as an act, it’s interesting culturally to see some of these anti-PC messages get out there.

    The creeps have already taken power. They are consolidating and applying it now.

    I work for a mid-size American corporation. Every weekday we get a woke email from HR celebrating anything that is not heterosexual White men. The woke employees do not hesitate to post pro-BLM crap and bash Trump on company-wide message boards. Not a single person posts anything political that “our side” would agree with. They are afraid. The company has begun to donate huge sums to Black organizations to essentially promote anti-White leftism.

    Our school district had an “anti-racist” seminar this summer. Included was a session on White privilege. My son was just working on an English assignment on diversity. He had to watch videos of Black women saying how tough it is in America for Blacks like them because of all the racism.

    The creeps are now in the position of those that asked Havel’s shop owner to put up propaganda signs in the shop’s windows. That is, they are in positions of power. We are CURRENTLY living in a country run by leftists.

  25. Eh, who needs standup, when the whole world has descended into some sort of surreal comedy sketch. Never was a fan of Burr anyway. The Dave Chappelle show was brilliant and funny in his prime, probably the only standup act I ever liked – and a real eye-opener on the effects of HBD.

    He’s done some MRA-themed stuff about women (redpill blogs will link him sometimes), so this is kind of up his alley.

    As PhysicistDave says, he’s doing a bit of jujitsu in turning one oppressed group against another (really, two). Black tends to trump the others in the oppression olympics because there really is a big historical crime against them (slavery) in this country. Theoretically Native Americans would fit the bill as well, but they live in the country rather than the city and hence tend to be forgotten these days.

    Whether you support this depends on whether you’re (more of) an MRA or a pro-white guy. Latino MRA? Thinks this is hilarious. White nationalist? Thinks he has it in for white women. If the arrows go in different directions (generic bitter white guy–anti-black, anti-woman) you’re likely to have mixed feelings.

    If you’re not particularly into identity politics but you’re anti-PC, you probably thought it was funny or at least agreed with the guy.

    My main thought is that I should learn German and join the AfD. “Haha, see, any criticism of me is antisemitic–you are a Nazi! Now, about these Muslims raping German girls in Ko:ln…”

  28. I hate to sound like an old man, but I stopped watching TV years ago. Please note that I didn’t just stop watching TV, I stopped letting that kind of entertainment into my mind.

    So I don’t care what Bill Burr has to say, or about that lady’s wet pussy, or how the avengers are going to defeat the purple guy, or really any of that stuff. I see it, I observe it as something that people really care about. But to me it’s no different than when my sister would, years ago, care a lot about the exploits of Luke and Laura.

    But why do you care what some comedian said on some TV show? It doesn’t affect you unless you let it affect you. It’s not like but listening you can gain insight on some secret enemy action. It’s not like you can’t get this stuff in a million other places.

    Are people just addicted to disagreement? Are they just addicted to moving pictures? Even here, you can’t go twenty comments without someone posting a video.

    Would it really be so bad if more people just decided the whole entertainment industry doesn’t suit them, so they stop caring about it, stop feeding it, stop engaging with it?

    Anyone who works in Corporate America has to applaud Bill Burr’s mocking of white women. Modern corporate culture is essentially designed for women. The fact that people still are not returning to their offices 7 months into this scam virus is thanks to oceans of busybody HR white women. Whiskey might be insane, but he is on to something with his rants. God bless the Karen memes. College educated white women are atrocious.

  34. Besides the racist cruelty of the assaulting the elderly bit, I would have thought SNL would have more solidarity with Rick Moranis. Great sketch comedian who hosted the show twice. Can’t wait for a future host to laugh at a brutal beating of Bill Burr. Lorne Michaels should apologize and stand up for Moranis.

    Over the years I have seen Burr in less sophisticated, more necky settings a few times. He has changed a lot, especially after he married a black woman and she is a real black woman, quite a few drops in there. She is Black. Like Michelle. His kid is Black(with a big ‘B’) and so Burr changes and now he is pretty Black too.
    So naturally he went from working class, Irish, red headed, low life Bostonian to more of a skinny a WOKE-ining shaved head noticer. What else is he gunna do? His old audience looks to him for some of that old timey, YT, eff u, political incorrectness but he has been compromised by matrimony(It happens to us all)  What else is he gunna do? He is married to it, like the other commenters said, ‘It’s the wife”.
    I thought Burr looked fake and unbelievable as a NY fireman in ‘the King of Staten Island”.
    Too skinny. Where’s the beef? twenty years ago he had some beef. However if he was the Bill Burr of  2000 he would never be allowed on SNL.

  37. Arclight says:

    There is no doubt Burr is more sympathetic to the left and on racial stuff, being married to a black woman, he’s not going to say/do anything that leads to him having to sleep on the couch. That said, his schtick is basically making fun of people and ideas with extreme examples – look up his bits “There’s No Reason to Hit a Woman” or “Epidemic of Gold Digging Whores.” I appreciate him taking shots at woke white women – because in my book, of all the different segments of society we currently have to contend with, they bear the greatest responsibility for our current cultural madness.

In a random conversation with my 103 year old mother she mentioned Will Rodgers as the funniest man ever. Who am I to dispute that. I dropped off my copy of “The Comic Mark Twain” for her to read.

    From one of those links (I can’t be bothered to tell which):
    “Given that the monologue began with a groan-worthy invoking of cancel culture, it’s likely that this kind of furious response, which flew fast off the keyboard, is what Burr was courting or interrogating. ”

    I am so glad “court” and “interrogate” are basically synonyms now. Instead of a man courting a lady, he may interrogate her. They can one day tell their children of the interrogetory phase of their relationship. It wasn’t a date, it was an interrogation.

    Perhaps “interrogate” is a euphemism for something, that I have missed entirely? Or maybe one day it will be?

    Also, what is “a[n] invoking?” Is it like a quickening?

  42. Half the monologue was reminiscent of Louis CK castigating whites who ever complain about their problems because poor black people suffered so just shut your white mouth. You can hear his black wife throughout the entire monologue. I imagine she spends a lot of time bitching about white women getting attention for woke causes and gays calling themselves oppressed when of course we know sacred Black Bodies have suffered the most. Anyone who listened to Bill’s podcast knows that his wife is domineering and nagging, sucking the fun and humor out of any conversation. I think he even mentioned her incessant nagging in a recent standup special, and now he has to include negro worship into any act so he doesn’t have to sleep on the couch that night

    The fact that he has been able to keep this show on the air for 45 years and that it is still considered to be relevant to the current generation and not some kind of nostalgia piece for its aging Boomer audience like a “’70s Rock” radio station is remarkable. In order to accomplish this feat he had to repeatedly discard multiple generations of his original audience and cast.

    Very few 75 year olds have the necessary flexibility and willingness to change that is needed to accomplish this (combined with the ability to tune your antennas to the new frequency and successfully execute ). For example, most people here who are Michael’s age are fixated on the mostly white, male dominated America of their youth. An era in which comics were funnier, singers sang better, etc. (in their view). Never mind that most of those guys are now dead or in nursing homes.

    Did anyone actually watch the clip?

    I wouldn’t say this is Bill Burr’s best work, but he takes some reasonable sarcastic shots, especially considering the national audience of SNL.

    At cancel culture – “How stupid is that cancel thing. They’re running out of people to cancel. They’re canceling dead people now… Like John Wayne. ‘Did you hear what he said in an interview in 1970?’ Well, yeah, he was born in 1907. That’s how they talked then.’

    At white women: “The way white women hijacked the woke movement… Generals around the world should be analyzing this… It was supposed to be about black people and oppression… But white women swung their Gucci-booted feet over the fence of oppression and took their place at the front of the line…

    The nerve of you white women… Trashing white guys… You [white women] stood by us toxic white males during centuries of our crimes against humanity, you rolled around in the blood money.. and if occasionally you wanted to hook up with a black dude, you said it wasn’t consensual… you should just sit down and take your talking to.”

    Haven’t I heard the bold-faced bits here at Unz? But Burr said them to 8-10 million woke leftists live (because who else watches SNL?).

    He also expanded his business model, realizing that there was more money in using the show to develop young stars, and develop their comic characters, and then monetize it by getting them into movies.

    He also realized the difference between the experience that people want on Saturday night (exciting New York nightlife, being with a crowded audience, seeing live music) and then just picking out the best clips to show with commercials on Youtube.

    Turn the coalition of fringes onto each other. This might hard for white nationalists to accept, but a white women majority have joined the coalition of the fringes to “destroy the patriarchy”.

    He made a joke about ‘woke’ belonging to Black (true). He made fun of white women and reminded them that when their jungle fever went sideways in the past they could claim rape. He pointed out that gays shouldn’t have a pride month because slavery only earned Blacks 28 days of February.

    It was funny, but very very much in line with the BLM left’s prevailing dogma. The joke was not on who you think it was on.

  57. Only days ago, the CDC admitted that the coronavirus can be spread through aerosols. This was of course completely obvious, because there’s no magic filter in your throat that keeps the virus particles only in the bigger droplets.

    So, there’s Bill Barr, without a mask, speaking loudly, voice projecting in an enclosed room full of victims, spewing his sweet, sweet virus particles all over the room, while berating people for not wearing masks. But he fucking loves science.

    But it’s OK, because the masks don’t protect against aerosols anyway.

    BTW, know what happens to the droplets your mask catches? They evaporate over time into, wait for it .. aerosols, which you both inhale into your lungs and blow out all over the room.

    Know what standard cloth masks don’t protect against? A gold star to the first one who says “aerosols.”

    For example, most people here who are Michael’s age are fixated on the mostly white, male dominated America of their youth. An era in which comics were funnier, singers sang better, etc. (in their view).

    Weren’t they though?

    I’m one of those guys–though more Steve’s age than Michael’s–but i’m pretty focused on the “right now.” I’m concerned about what the hell is happening to America and what sort of future i’m leaving to my kids.

    When i reminisce it usually back to great times–road trips, vacations, hikes and holidays–with my own kids. Or rarely–have some old friends coming here the week after the election to commiserate or celebrate together–back to grad school days.

    I very, very rarely think back to my own childhood. Then i think of fresh faced girls in my class in pleated skirts … and i do shed a tear at what we’ve lost.

  63. I’ve never found this guy particularly funny, and his “I’ve had it up to here!” schtick doesn’t take any political courage whatsoever. You toe the line on race (while avoiding the J word altogether) or you lose your livelihood. It’s just that simple. As Steve knows. I’m going to see a much funnier (and to a degree brave) comic tonight: Tim Dillon. But even he sort of tries to have it both ways. Not that I don’t have sympathy for people trying to make a living. I try to protect my identity like everyone else here and for the same reason.

    I’m not a “white nationalist” and my wife isn’t even white. Yes, there’s something gallingly hypocritical about the enthusiasm of white women jumping on the woke train. But Burr was criticizing them from the Left, like a black person would. If he had even the slightest inclination to attack from the right, he wouldn’t be hosting SNL. He is not going to say anything might damage his career. He won’t even come close.

    Back then Negro kids in the nation’s “ghettoes” could walk to their local school, play in the street, and work or run errands without their or their parents’ living in agonizing fear that they might be shot and killed, whether accidentally or on purpose, by some gang banger with his pants hanging halfway down his ass crack.

    There were some thing in the past that were better than what we have now. There were other things that were worse. (I for one am glad every summer that pretty much everywhere you go is air conditioned now.). It’s easy to look at the past and remember the good things fondly and forget the bad parts.

    But the main thing about the past is that it is past, it is gone, often literally dead and gone. There is no point in using it as a yardstick because it no longer exists and can’t be brought back. Sometimes you’ll buy a new product – say a brand of toothpaste or a kind of shampoo and you’ll say that this product is not as good as that other product, so I am just going to switch back to that other brand. But you can’t do that with past America. It’s not on offer anymore. It can’t be had at any price. No genie is going to grant your wish and give you back that America.

    The pro Rick Moranis getting beat joke is essentially heading off any criticism of BLM and saying that we should be celebrating the rise in black criminality as an expression of authenticity and righteous rage.

    Didn’t hear it as a pro-beating joke. “New York’s back!” can be interpreted differently, not necessarily as approval… What it will actually do is get a national audience to look up the Moranis incident on the internet…and many will draw their own conclusions.

  75. I personally cancelled Bill Burr after his woke lie-filled rant against Kyle Rittenhouse, wherein he said he hated to see it when the BLM demonstrations turned violent “because it hurts their position.” He’s a sad, sad shadow of his former self. He loves his Black wife and his kids, which is admirable, but the attendant biases killed his act and he should have gone the Seinfeld route and retired with a strong legacy.

  78. The age of standup began in the 1880’s with Mark Twain and one other fellow who’s name I can’t remember.

    Your statement, while understood, smacks of fatalism.

    A lot of white parents who have children that don’t look like them end up with kind of a chip on their shoulder which manifests itself in their being socially reactive . I think of Robert De Niro or Bill de Blasio who in spite of their wealth, fame, and power end up with a legacy of weird looking children. This sounds harsh but sexual polarity is such that a ugly powerful high status man typically mates with the most attractive woman he can to balance out the scales genetically. Instead what these guys did is marry a political soul mate and ended up with a clutch of ugly ducklings. It is easy to see why these guys hate Donald Trump with such a passion. He produced 3 clutches of attractive, intelligent, high status white children whereas all Mayor Bill got were useless SJW underachievers.

    No one should fetishize 1960, but it’s pretty damn important to look at how things were in 1960–for example illegitimacy–and then ask questions about “how we got here?” and “is it possible or desirable to get back?”

    Some things are doable – there has been a revival of craftsmanship in certain fields. Generally speaking American architecture hit rock bottom in the ’70s and now historical styles and ornamentation have come to be valued again by many.

    Other things are not doable or only in the context of war. If you had spoken to a Polish nationalist in 1925 and told him that in 20 years the population of Poland would be virtually 100% people of Polish ethnicity, thus restoring Poland to some distant (and mythical) past glory, he would have thought that to be a dream come true. (Poland in 1925 not only had a large Jewish minority that was not loved by many Polish nationalists but several other large non-Polish minorities – Ukrainians, Germans, etc.). But then if you told him that the price for this was the death of millions of Polish citizens, that Warsaw and many other Polish cities would be reduced to rubble, the loss of large swaths of territory and 40 more years of life under the Communist yoke and occupation by Russian troops, he might not have taken that bargain. Be careful of what you ask for, because you just might get it, but not quite in the way that you were hoping for.

    masks don’t protect against aerosols anyway.

    While masks don’t protect against aerosols, their primary purpose is to prevent the aerosols from being emitted from the source. Additionally, the filtration they provide reduces the intake into the recipient. That is a big deal since the degree of disease depends on viral load intake.

    They evaporate over time into, wait for it .. aerosols, which you both inhale into your lungs and blow out all over the room.

    That is not accurate. Evaporation causes H2O molecules on the mask to become vapor. The virus particles stay on the mask and eventually die due to desiccation and lack of incubation into a living cell. Same as evaporating sea water and finding salt in the residue.

    At least he did better than De Blasio. A lot of men (it seems to be mostly men) here complain that black females are not attractive compared to white women (and most aren’t). But I would rate his wife top 10% among black females. Her weight seems to be under control – something which escapes many white females nowadays. And most of her pictures on the Internet seem to show her with a warm and genuine smile rather than the fake scowl of the Woke – this is very promising. I don’t know the woman from a hole in the ground – she could be a nasty be-atch for all I know. But in that case she is a nasty be-atch who seems to smile whenever there is a camera around.

    It should be added that Meader was yuuge in the Kennedy years, based solely on his impersonation of JFK–he was definitely a one trick pony. But he was the toast of the town while it lasted-he did a ton of TV, sold out personal appearances in Las Vegas, sold millions of comedy records–his debut album won a Grammy and was the fastest selling album of any kind-a record later broken by the Beatles.

    That all ended the day Kennedy was killed.

    The story goes that Lenny Bruce insisted on doing his standup routine in the club that he was booked at on the same night JFK was killed. Here’s Wikipedia:

    “According to several sources, stand-up comedian Lenny Bruce went on with his November 22 nightclub show as scheduled. Just hours after Kennedy’s death, Bruce walked onstage, stood silently for several moments, then said sadly, “Boy, is Vaughn Meader f**cked.”

    Which is hilarious in a horrible way, or horrible in a hilarious way.

  99. Not Burr’s best by a long shot. But that’s SNL for ya—it makes most everything sub par.

    His best is usually taking feminists to task. Not “white” women, all women.

    He’s still not good on race. As many here have said, its because he married a black chick. But on feminism/female entitlement, he’s usually much funnier.

There won’t be much more immigration from now onward, both due to travel restriction and, more importantly, contraction in the economy, especially, immigrant attracting kind – restaurants, hospitality etc., The much larger expenditure through deficits etc., will hopefully kick up inflation back to 1970’s levels and discourage immigration. The best deal would be the loss of the $ as international reserve, the bane of our existence.

That is, Black men just can’t let up beatin’ on they bitches, while in white culture, it’s extremely frowned upon, especially beating on black women, so when black women speak their mind, and refuse to stop, their chances of the pimp hand coming down on them is minuscule. Bill has said on many occasions that his wife won’t stop needling him when he asks her to give it a rest, and sometimes has to leave the house to escape her needling.

    Then he could extrapolate on that by noting how the Chicago Police department uses black misogyny against black men, enticing their violent predilection towards women by hiring female policewomen to rile them up by ordering them around, which makes a violent response likely, allowing the Police to shoot stabby black men with legal and social impunity:

    Someone here the other day mentioned that anti-mask position was based upon viewing masks as binary devices – either they are “effective” or “not effective”.

    Among some people. Not among all. Some of us are quite cognizant of the non-binary nature of safety measures. But not everyone is wearing an N95 mask, and there is a lot of question about looser-fitting masks.

    Fundmentally, I don’t care. This virus is not the black-death. You want to wear a mask? Wear one. If other people don’t wear one, that’s your problem, not ours. Stay indoors, if it frightens you. It is not the legitimate business of the government to prescribe what I wear on my face.

    If I told you that body armor reduced the severity of wounds by 80% would you tell the US military to stop using it because it’s not 100% effective?

    Hey, you could get shot anytime. Maybe the government should mandate that you wear body armor any time you’re out in public.

    I agree. It was awesome. Kind of surprised by the number of people on this thread who don’t understand Bill Burr (he’s definitely not on the left, even if he’s not like us.) Not surprised by his poor reception at SNL, though. Audience reaction in standup comedy is close to half the equation (in my uneducated opinion) so when an audience is largely unreceptive, it kind of negates the cleverness or insight of the performance. It’s even slightly difficult for sympathetic fans to watch. I thought Bill’s material was great -outstanding, in fact – but SNL audiences want Alec Baldwin’s Trump or Tina Fey to validate their world view, so there’s no way that they’re going to respond positively to something like this.

    That is not accurate. Evaporation causes H2O molecules on the mask to become vapor. The virus particles stay on the mask and eventually die due to desiccation and lack of incubation into a living cell. Same as evaporating sea water and finding salt in the residue.

    Not when there is a consistent source of new moisture via your breath on the mask. I probably used the wrong term with evaporation. Ever see one of the old room humidifiers that has a belt of wet porous material that passes over a blower fan? The belt dips down into the water supply, picks up new moisture, moves up to the fan where the moisture is blown out into the room.

    In this scenario, your breath is the fan and the mask is the belt, continuously remoisturized by your breath instead of a water reservoir. You keep passing air through the damp mask which will carry moisture from the mask out into the air along with virus particles.

    When the mask is new and dry, it traps a lot of droplets. They’re only intended to be worn for a brief time. They have a finite carrying capacity, and the mask doesn’t have to become literally saturated to release aerosol particles back into the air with your warm moist breath. A typical retail worker wears the same mask throughout a shift. People keep the same mask stashed in their car and wear it through multiple outings. They touch the masks frequently. The masks aren’t tightly fitted. All these lapses conspire to make the masks of very dubious harm reduction.

    Vouchsafed mean granted in an amicable way. That would be nice, but it’s the opposite of the truth. Israel lost about 1% of its Jewish population during the 1948 war. The compares to about 2% of the US population from the War of Independence in 1776. In American terms today, the Israeli body count is analogous to 3.2m American war dead.

    Meader did indeed fall on hard times after JFK’s murder.

That first album sold 7.5 million copies and won the Grammy for Album of the Year–not Comedy Album–the Album of the year, beating Tony Bennett, Ray Charles, and jazz great Stan Getz, among others.

    After Kennedy’s death, he had serious troubles with drugs and alcohol, the latter problem dogging him for the rest of his life. He had lost all the money he had made (in excess of a million dollars, in one year, in 1963 money). He was also married four times. He did seem to have come to peace with things in later years.

    It’s destroying Hollywood and Sportsball, Inc., as well.

    So is the one in the magenta dress or gray tie Bill Burr?

    The only way to win against these leftists. Turn the coalition of fringes onto each other.

    Terrible comment. The only way to win is for white people to unite in support of our group interests. This idiotic “make the minorities turn on each other” strategy leads nowhere. It can’t work. Even if they did turn on each other, they would still all be opposed to white interests. White women are white and should support white group interests, as many already do. We have a divide now between white nationalists and these boomer type race realist individualists. The boomers are in many cases older Gen X white men over 50 who just don’t get it. They are boomer adjacent fools.

    I can explain a little about the significance of this to boomers and boomer adjacent older Xers. Bill Burr is part of this thing from the 2000’s decade of white male comedy that served as a sort of alternative media for young white guys. Around 2000, mainstream media — TV, movies, pop music — became very unfriendly to young white men. It became more feminist, more gay, more black, more brown. Most young white men stopped paying attention to mainstream media and became more interested in alternative media like video games, online spaces, comedy and obscure music genres that were unaffected by the increasingly black, multi-culti, gay, feminist mainstream media.

    A lot of boomers didn’t notice because the old white men in the media were grandfathered in. So boomer white male icons continued to get gigs and get respect, but all the young men in the media were black, gay, Jewish or wiggers like Eminem or Justin Timberlake. The best example of this is how after 2000, two mixed race mulattos, Vin Diesel and The Rock, were appointed by Hollywood to fill all the action hero roles. To younger white men, it was obviously an attempt to replace us. Which is why so few young whites went to see Vin Diesel movies, whose audience skewed wildly non-white. But boomer conservative white men didn’t notice or care that young white men were being replaced. Many of them thought having mulattos as all the heroes was some kind of progress towards the boomer fantasy post racial utopia.

    The alternative white guy media space in that era was anti-political correctness, but not overtly political. It avoided going along with the anti-white zeitgeist on radical individualist grounds rather than on pro-white grounds. It was full of nihilism and libertarian thinking. In recent years, the audience of this space has been broadly moving towards white nationalism. Younger Gen X and millennial white men were never influenced 60’s style utopian liberalism, like many white conservative boomers still are. But they have baggage from this libertarian/nihilist alternative culture. The process of becoming politically aware for white men under 50 is largely about casting aside individualist delusions and embracing our collective ethnic identity as white European people.

    Bill Burr totally selling out is part of the process of that 00’s era white guy culture being exposed as fraudulent. It fits the narrative that white nationalists were saying back in those days — that this nihilist individualism is garbage that doesn’t lead to any positive outcomes. So Bill Burr’s bowing down to anti-whiteness is another step towards the growth of white nationalism, showing that there is no viable individualist alternative to white identity politics.

    I got one of Vaughn Meader’s JFK albums used when I was a kid in the later 1960s. It was funny.

    Thanks! This pretty much disappeared after Kennedy was shot.

    Most of the old British comics were lefties- The Pythons, Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Leonard Rossiter, Rowan Atkinson; but they were lefties with a sense of humor…

    Great tip. I had never heard of Brian Regan. I went to YouTube and what do you know, he is hilarious. Thanks. I need lots of laughs to get through the grand finale of 2020.
