Pretty nice, if you have followed Aziz, he is a talented guy. He has used lots and lots of gay jokes, racist jokes and sexist jokes, I guess that is OK if you can exploit people to make a living. Seems very hypocritical to say I can say anything I want cause I'm just joshing.
I don't recall hearing any "issues" for the last 8 years.

Aziz said on SNL that there is a small pocket of Trump supporters that are "lower case" KKK. He encouraged Trump speak out against the supposed group. He continues to say that the group of lowe case KKK are not going to have to pretend they are not racist anymore.

As host of the first Saturday Night Live episode following Donald Trump’s inauguration, Aziz Ansari urged the president to speak out against a small pocket of his supporters the comedian calls “lowercase KKK.”
These people, he said, have “gotten way too fired up about the Trump thing for the wrong reasons. I’m talking about these people that, as soon as Trump won, they’re like, ‘We don’t have to pretend like we’re not racist anymore! We don’t have to pretend anymore! We can be racist again! Whoo!'”

“If you’re one of these people, please go back to pretending,” he added. “You’ve got to go back to pretending. I’m so sorry we never thanked you for your service. We never realized how much effort you were putting into the pretending. But you gotta go back to pretending.”

Too many people in this country get their news from comedy shows and stand-up routines.

I have yet to hear a comedian mock the lower case Communists that pretend to be Socialist or the lower case Progressives that pretend they are not Totalitarian.

I am interested to see if the old play book is going to work. I know micro aggression and saferooms are dung piles. Micro aggression and micro racism is umprovable but easy to cry about.

I have yet to turn my tv on and watch SNL, not funny and really stupid, its been 15 years.

Well then since it's a small pocket of supporters.

Then it's statistically insignificant.

And political HACKS like Aziz are making a mountain out of a sinkhole.

so, where`s his proof? or doesn`t he need any proof to make unsubstantiated paranoid claims because he`s a liberal?

I`m really starting to believe that many liberals are clinically insane.

Yes, this is exactly how humans work. I'm not sure what part of this is hypocritical to you. Words are just sounds that we form to express the thoughts in our brains. If you say to me: "Hey, I think you're an a-hole", I'm not mad at you for the sounds you made, I'm mad at you for the negative thoughts you have about me.

This is why it's okay to say, "I liked the KKK until I found out they smoked pot." (Presumably a joke?) And it's not okay to say "I like the KKK."

In the first example, the speaker presumably is being sarcastic. And in the second example, the speaker clearly just supports hate groups.

Humans are not literal. You can say anything you want if you're just joking because you're not expressing real hate (whether or not the joke is funny is a different matter). I don't know that it can be made any clearer than that.

He's a comedian. Surely you all aren't getting emotional because he's making fun of Donald Trump supporters? There's a word people use to describe lefties that do that...

I don't recall him saying all Trump supporters are racist but he called out the racist ones who feel empowered because of Trump. You know, the Alt Right, for example Richard Spencer who held a press conference declaring America to be a white nation while his minions gave Nazi salutes yelling Trump. Or how about David Duke constantly congratulating Trump for this and that.

So not all Trump supporters are racist but all white supremacists are Trump supporters. So lets stop pretending these racists don't exist and don't support Trump.

Seem like he is looking for high 5's and more work.

He opens his mouth and deviates from the official hateful left, he is out of work. There is a black list among accepting and totally un-inpeachable left.

Maybe because it's so difficult to tell the difference?

Trump supporters have been called racist by the media since the very beginning of the campaign. The left sounds like a broken record and severely lacks imagination and creativity.

It was fair and funny. Good for Aziz.

Aziz was right about the GWB joke. GWB (who is the worst president of all time to date) will be "Trump"ed
by Comrade himself as the worst when it is all said and done.

We miss you GWB.

Isn't it interesting that only white people appear to be racist because the left says so.....I remember Rev. Jerimiah Wright, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and about twenty Hollowood stars spewing racist and hate filled generalizations about Trump supporters.

I have very vivid memories of the BLM people chanting "Death to Pigs" and other slurs and threats before being invited to see Obama at the White House.....if I resent my President patronizing domestic terrorists does that make me racist or just someone with a strong survival instinct? I may be alt-right in some of my opinions and just deplorable in others but I find racism completely distasteful and generally a prejudice held by a poor minority.....both black and white.
