Seinfeld Now Offensive to Millenials
Quote:Now, one of the most popular and successful TV shows of all time is considered problematic for several jokes that were okay – or a little edgy – in the 1990s that are now offensive to American millennials. The previous victim of this new, politically correct world was “Friends.” Now, “Seinfeld” is getting the social justice warrior treatment.

Move Over ‘Friends,’ Millennials Now Find ‘Seinfeld’ Problematic

Is it offensive to "millennials" or is it offensive to 20 easily offended gay people on twitter?

Year Zero (Communist master plan)

Quote:The idea behind Year Zero is that all culture and traditions within a society must be completely destroyed or discarded and a new revolutionary culture must replace it, starting from scratch. All history of a nation or people before Year Zero is deemed largely irrelevant, as it will ideally be purged and replaced from the ground up.

The way it works, is those 20 gays on twatter will become 20 million people due to articles such as this telling them it is now wrong. NPC mentality and all that.

I am afraid that women appreciate cruelty, downright cruelty, more than anything else. They have wonderfully primitive instincts. We have emancipated them, but they remain slaves looking for their masters all the same. They love being dominated.

RE: Seinfeld Now Offensive to Millenials
I wonder how long it will be before they stop showing it in syndication? Another fun sitcom from the 90s was Fraiser, also with the kind of jokes and material that would never fly today.

Freaking leftist loons have to ruin everything. I keep waiting for the pushback that never seems to come.

An era where blacks and whites could hurl hardcore race jokes at eachother and still be friends.


This 1 scene alone from 1974 would send a million SJWs into meltdown every minute that passes.

RE: Seinfeld Now Offensive to Millenials
Makes sense if you watched Curb Your Enthusiasm. Larry David was essentially making fun of SJWs by playing a character with reasonable sensibilities trying to navigate the social justice obsessed limousine liberal culture of LA. A lot of Seinfeld episodes did the same thing by lampooning liberal "tolerance" (Why won't you wear the AIDS ribbon!?!), just that back in the mid 90s most people were sane and it was funny.

RE: Seinfeld Now Offensive to Millenials
I'm not buying this one. I know a lot of millennials that consider Seinfeld one of the greatest shows ever. But, to add to the above, the Seinfeld and Friends fan bases don't tend to intertwine. Either you're a die hard fan of one or the other. I consider Seinfeld and Curb two of the three or four greatest comedy series of all time.

Insanely accurate. It's barely on TV anymore except during the graveyard hours and not really on the streaming services so it's a bit hidden for the younger generations. I only found it because I'm a night owl. But, that's the type of show I could see being blacklisted or put on a banned viewing list if things ever got that extreme. However, it's one of the earliest dysfunctional family sitcoms I know of so you could argue it was ahead of its time in a way.

This will probably get a pass. For the time, it's considered kind of a progressive show because it's one of the first to talk about feminist viewpoints with an archetype like Bunker. Plus, Jefferson got his own series after that.

As far back as I could remember, I always wanted to be a player.

RE: Seinfeld Now Offensive to Millenials
It's shocking how ahistorical they are.

I can't say that I've ever watched All in the Family - just clips here and there like the one above - but I immediately recognize it as part of the agenda to erase old standards, to imply that there's no good arguments supporting them, just old-man biggotry.

The above clip of the wedding is hilarious - but it's purpose is to destroy distinctions between people. Both Bunker and Jefferson are treated as grumpy old men from a bygone era, they literally toast to "Yesterday" without having any reason - aside from biggotry - as to why "Yesterday" was better than today's progress. The final joke in that clip comes when Bunker's wife asks him "What would be so bad about the whole world interbreeding, and becoming the Beige Race?" To which Bunker replies "How would we tell eachother apart?"

Funny joke; but it implies that there are no cultural differences worth preserving, no heritage that ought to be held on to. The widespread adoption of this policy can only result in one of two things:

1. Transracialism - where you can pick any aspect of any culture and declare that you're heritage. On the soft side, this is White fedoras owning samurai swords; on the hard side, it's outright transracial people.

2. A dilution of culture to the point where it's nothing but Coke, Nikes, and Netflix. Black elves in Lord of the Rings, and Whites serving in a reimagined Zulu army.

I think something precious to humanity is being eroded by this attitude.

The SJWs who would take issue with Archie Bunker seem incapable of realizing that he is on their side. The show was pushing an early version of their agenda - only now they're so much more woke, that they can't appreciate it.

Historical illiteracy is very effective at creating a generation of slaves.

Curb Your Enthusiasm is probably the funniest show ever made because it does exactly that. There is nothing funnier in life than recognizing truth and the absurd nature of society's programming. Seinfeld did this as well but Curb perfected it.

Larry doesn't know when to play the black card:

Funny how they're targeting it after Roosh listed it in his book as a game improvement tool.

Andy Griffith would probably trigger them the most though. Doing a show that portrays a white police officer and a small southern town in a positive light means being blacklisted and deplatformed at the speed of light now.

I posted this in another thread a while back. Young people reacting to Seinfeld. Half thought it was funny but felt guilty, and the other half were scandalized.

Definitely a 'not all Millennials" sort of issue.

Would be better to say that Seinfeld is offensive to 'Millennials who want attention on the internet.'

It is a good video, and the generational inversion, with the young people scolding their elders, is interesting in and of itself.

RE: Seinfeld Now Offensive to Millenials
Back in the late 80s and early 90s I used to watch the Super Dave Osborne show (RIP, he died yesterday) for his crazy stunts which was part of a sketch comedy show called Bizarre that he co-hosted with American John Byner in Toronto. Bizarre was hilarious, one of the funniest acts they did was The Bigot Family where they joked about racial sterotypes of Irish, Polish, Black, Mexican and Jews.




Then there was the Kids In The Hall, another Canadian show that featured a bunch of faggots making fun of themselves being faggots, it was back when the queers still had a sense of humour




Both of these were on Canadian public TV in the early evening so I would watch them with my brother and my parents didn't give a shit, they thought it was hilarious. The Kids In The Hall was on CBC so Canadian tax payers money literally funded a show that could never be aired today 25 years later because of all the pussy snowflakes who can't take joke, sad!

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.

I don't even think any of the BK Kids Club were truly scandalized by any of that. It's the same phenomenon as in the Soviet Union where Stalin would give a speech, and the audience would clap for hours at the end because each audience member knew the first one to stop clapping would get dragged off by the secret police.

These kids have grown up in an world where feckless comments on social media result in public shaming, firings, police investigations, and torrents of death threats. They aren't going to risk being the one to unambiguously say the show is funny and draw the attention of the puritans stalking the internet and slavering for another opportunity to "call out" someone.

Note that the girls are better at pretending to be offended, women are better primed to avoid social ostracism by following the herd.

Was just talking about Bizarre today with my bud (commiserating the passing of Bob Epstein). That show was the greatest! Fuggin hilarious. Not only was it hilarious, you could see boobies on prime-time TV in the early 80s, what more could a teenager ask for?

Totally. When women are actually offended they tend to gape their mouth and put their hand over it or do that face scrunching thing where they look like they're getting little whiffs of dog shit. These women had really neutral expressions.

"Problematic" is another weasel word, like "toxic" and "violence" that SJWs love to use over and over again because it's vague enough to suggest something sinister, without committing the speaker to actually saying ... anything at all.

Quote:The Roosh Program
May 9, 2012
Game
[by] Roosh

4. Watch one episode of Seinfeld a day. Seinfeld is an American comedy program that will teach you two things: (1) how to spit humor that girls like, and (2) how to have long, meandering conversations (i.e. how to ramble). What’s great about the show is that it offers quintessential American humor that will be well-received anywhere in the country, and even in foreign countries as well. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve successfully used word-for-word bits from the show in my pickups. The best time to watch an episode is right before heading out to approach. You can find used DVDs of the show for only a few bucks.
(emphasis added)

Mr. Roosh's pickup game is issuing some SJW-triggering comedic gold.

A joke was funny if somebody laughed at it.

And that is what I do whenever crude humor triggers somebody who takes it personally, a person that thinks one can or should censor comedy.Popcorn3

No severity of (purported) victimhood per se qualifies a critic to make absolute generalizations about the quality of the humor of a joke.

Repeating that you were victimized ... ok we heard you--go back to the above point.

Nobody owns the commons. You don't have to listen.

And if you think grown adults can't make up their minds about what they listen to on their own without your oversight, then that makes you authoritarian.

Pretty paradoxical, right? since your whole shtick is about the essential injustice of hierarchy or inequality.

Back to the drawing board!
