Actor and comedian Bill Murray boldly went after liberals and identity politics for ruining comedy. “It’s ‘Clash of Clans’ everyday, first thing in the morning,” said Murray in a CNBC interview.
“My friend who’s a great comedy writer, Jim Downey, he’s accused of being a right-wing comedy writer, if there is such a thing. ‘No, no,’ he says, ‘I just think the way Democrats handle things is poor. They pick out little pieces of a population and say they represent it — we represent the Hispanics, we represent the LGBT, or something,'” explained Murray.
This is so true. We constantly hear liberals talk about how they represent ‘women’ and ‘minorities’ when it just isn’t true.
“They’re not speaking to everyone at once. It’s almost demeaning to say I’m choosing you, because you’re a splinter group, there’s almost a resentment, to say you’re my people. We’re being separated again by a politician,” said Murrsy.
“‘You’re my people, I’m in control of you, I represent you,’ instead of thinking that each citizen has a right to be respected as a citizen first, under the laws of the country,” said Murray. He also disgusted how Kirstin Wiig has been successful for trying to make everyone laugh. “She’s not thinking about being political, she’s thinking about what resonates and what is common to all of us, and I think that’s harder and harder to do because people are trying to win their point of view as opposed to saying ‘What if I spoke to everyone?’” said Murray.
