Jeff Dunham and Political Correctness

Via Videogum:

The fight against political correctness is such a nonsensical throwback argument to the early-’90s. No one is pushing for “political correctness” as a decontextualized blindly dogmatic philosophy. What people are pushing for is not pretending that racism and homophobia and misogyny and anti-semitism don’t exist, or trying to camouflage these things as “jokes.” Suggesting that hate speech is offensive and upsetting and dangerous if used in an unilluminating and…well, hateful way is not “politically correct,” it’s just correct.
