PHILADELPHIA (CBS) Chris Stigall spoke with comedian Rob Schneider on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT about the struggle comedians face in todays current political environment.
Schneider struck on ominous tone when discussing the path he sees the country on.
Democracies dont end well. We are sliding very fast towards fascism. Its an ugly kind of thing. Theres this kind of mob mentality that we have to be careful of, he said.
He believes comedians are pressured toward one side of the political spectrum.
Theres a polarization thats happening I do think you look can look at government and go, Wow, it is out of control now, and if you do criticize or tend to be not directly along a liberal stand, you can get murdered, Schneider commented.
Schneider was very critical of the Presidents handling of the economy and he feels certain policies are impacting businesses.
Theres not one segment of business under the Obama administration that hasnt been hurt he attacks for-profit schools, which is totally an elitist thing from a guy that went to Harvard. I think for free, by the way, Schneider said.
He was also critical of the media for being overly influenced by the government and not standing up for the American people.
We dont really have freedom of the press. Its owned by about eight different companies, and it doesnt really express or help the average American, Schneider stated.
We are already there.
And comfortable with it.
Uh, not quite............its going to get a lot worse.
Interestingly, quite a few SNL alumni lean to the right, including Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, Jon Lovitz, and Victoria Jackson. Could be a few more that are on the down low.
Where’s Andrew Dice Clay when you need him?
Oh he drives through FR occasionally. He’s conservative too.
The former lost his job, the latter will lose his business (which he has owned for a number of decades). Both happened over private thoughts and beliefs.
The next step is (as of right now) to go after places like Amazon to stop the publication and sale of non approved material, followed by the shutting down of websites by ISP’s for the same reason.
I suspect there will be mass arrests, banning of non goodthink churches, followed by a Great Terror.
We are well on the way to the end of the democracy. The Republic died during the Civil War, and the Democracy started to die during WWI and II.
pretty much too late for alarm
the book burning is coming
Victoria maybe but a guy who makes gigolo movies is no conservative
Norm what’s his name was always right
Murray on occasion says old school moral stuff....but he’s more old union lib
Welcome to the party, Rob. We’ve been saying this for years.
I always thought old Dan was a right winger............
Like I said “lean to the right”, which is probably about as good as we can hope from the Hollyweird.
before i read your name, i knew this comment was yours! :)
He never actually had sex with any of his customers.................
