… of whom I had never heard before today.
For those of you who give a damn, he's the new host of the show that Jon Stewart used to have on Comedy Central. It seems he's a bit of an anti-Semite.
Comedy Central says that Noah's tweets are OK, because he 'pushes boundaries'. Hmmm … Mike Pence should try that defense for Indiana.
But anyway, no doubt some exec has pulled him aside and said, “Hey, Trev, it looks like you'll have to can the Jew jokes until things cool down.”
I'm going to go not very far out on a limb and guess that Trevor Noah is a left-winger. It's probable, in fact, that in drawing up the specs for job interviews Comedy Central had a line that said something like, “Must hold predictably liberal and PC positions on all issues.”
What's interesting is that, among large segments of the left, anti-Semitism is not just an acceptable outlook, it has become PC.
Here's a post about left-wing anti-Semitism in Europe from a while back.
