Knocking down statues that offend you is good. It's been defended on this site.
Pushing to eliminate Columbus Day is good. It's been defended on this site.
Banning people from burning the Koran is good. It's been defended on this site.
But now we're all supposed to be behind free speech and free expression?
I defended Netflix on page 3 of this thread, but I'm not partisan in my defense of free speech, not saying you are, but the problem exists when only a small group defends all speech and larger groups only defend their speech.
When I start seeing the leftists defending ALL speech, then I might start believing that they are honest and sincere.

Iron Man black girl.
New Batman black dude.
Seems like someone in hollywood has a race obsession. As for the new Iron man featuring that girl i don't think it would last very long. It wont be long before marvels bring back the original iron man.
Hollywood are cucks it seems.

Ever think that Christianity is a easy target because most Christians will laugh it off and not threaten to murder everyone involved in a film (or in the past...a cartoon?).
A majority belief system that people do not go murder rampage over if mocked or questioned.
Very true at least in this age. When countries stopped being Christian theocracies the Christian murder rampages took a steep dive.
Muslim theocracies are still murder rampagey. Yet another good reason to get rid of theocracies.

Again, this wouldn't be nearly as annoying if society were even handed in its irreverence ... but it's not. Treat other groups and religions like they treat Chrisianity, and the outrage mob comes for you. Thing is that the outrage mob isn't just people of this or that group, but also people who get offended on behalf of that group.
No one gets offended on behalf of Christians. Instead, they deserve it. They take the same approach with other majority groups - they deserve it.
So it reveals something even there. Comedy has gone from poking fun at our various foibles to all being mean-spirited ridicule akin to bullyying. Why else is the knee-jerk reaction taken by the outrage mongers either that you're hurting others or that you deserve to be hurt? Comedy used to about laughing together.
