Apu is dead...we have killed him!

Does being politically correct take itself too seriously?

Is the PC movement blocking freedom of speech?

Is people being so offended just a sign of their/our world being so out of their control?

APU has their very own stop on the Gold Line. What are you complaining about?

I always loved Apu. My stereotype of East Indians is they are really intelligent. Maybe Hari Kondabolu suffers from an inferiority complex, or his numbers were falling, or he didn't have anything more important to do, or he's trolling. Odd thing a comedian being upset and not wallowing in parody.

Another stereotype of mine use to be thinking alcoholics are ugly. Latter I felt the label, alcoholic, really doesn't say anything about the person e g are they loving, mean spirited, kind, lost, ambitious. Statistically most of them hold jobs and some have been great writers. Mankind has been using intoxicants for eons. Then I started thinking how just about anything we 'wallow in' is intoxicating e g emotions, sports, anger, climbing, etc.

It has nothing to do with people.
It's about being a target of progressive's attack pack.

I already gave up trying to understand their logic and predicting the next victim.

Next victim?

Global warming!

Sorry if that offended you.

Oh, one more,

Separation of church and state.

Sorry again.

Maybe one more,

End Citizens United.

Wow, I can't stop!

Bring the criminals in the government to justice.

Stop the wars.

Provide health care to all.

Free collage.

Gun control.

You poor victim, Yury. Those evil progressive are after your most cherished values.

Take heart, though. It's not going to happen. Big corporations will make sure of it.

Seinfeld and Chris Rock will no longer perform on college campuses because the PC snowflakes can't handle it. That's some kind of humor death, methinks.

I had to Google his opening statement to understand the Portland mental angst that has seized the poor fellow who started this thread.

Sooo-sad, although I do now remember apu from the few episodes of the Simpsons I watched.

I suspect a more-correct thread-title would be:
The Day humor died on Fox.

Fuk Fox & the conservative pinheads who watch it.

Doug Stanhope is brilliant. Saw a guy have a seizure at his show once. His response was, "If I stopped my set everytime somebody had a medical emergency I would never get anything done." Everyone laughed. Except the guy convulsing and being dragged out by his armpits.

I'll miss Apu, but I haven't seen a new episode in sometime. I guess they said it was black face for voice. Dr. Hebert is voiced by a white guy, nobody cares.
