Rob Schneider Tells Chris Stigall: We Are Sliding Very Fast Towards Fascism

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Chris Stigall spoke with comedian Rob Schneider on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT about the struggle comedians face in today’s current political environment.

Schneider struck on ominous tone when discussing the path he sees the country on.

“Democracies don’t end well. We are sliding very fast towards fascism. It’s an ugly kind of thing. There’s 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.

“There’s a polarization that’s 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 President’s handling of the economy and he feels certain policies are impacting businesses.

“There’s not one segment of business under the Obama administration that hasn’t 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 don’t really have freedom of the press. It’s owned by about eight different companies, and it doesn’t really express or help the average American,” Schneider stated.

Sliding?

We are already there.

And comfortable with it.

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.

First Victoria Jackson. Then Dennis Miller. Jon Lovitz was pushed to the right when the left attacked him for some innocuous comments. Now Rob Schneider.

Mozilla and the Clippers are test cases. The first was for a man who donated to a cause, and did so following the letter of law. The second was for private comments made over a private means of communication.

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.

Like I said “lean to the right”, which is probably about as good as we can hope from the Hollyweird.

I’d to see Akroyd on the right to offset dip$hits like Matt Damon, Sean Penn, and George Clooney. I suspect Decaprio will be a rightie before long.

DiCaprio has said some things in the past that have led me to believe he's a right-of-center thinker. There's a reason Leo hasn't won an Oscar, and I suspect his politics have something to do with it.

To me the Mozilla CEO case is far more ominous. The Left has a detailed, thoroughly thought-out plan to go after and punish those who financially support(ed) Conservative causes.

Both are concerning.

The Mozilla for a private donation. The Clippers because they are attempting to steal his property from him.

Norm McDonald. He is great. You should hear him on gays. Watch him on youtube with Dennis Miller. Course talk but it is funny. Especially the gay stuff. Makes points I have made for years like why do gays consider being gay an accomplishment.

He always was a Republican. Remember DUKAKIS AFTER DARK? I had a bad cold and actually collapsed I was laughing/coughing so hard.

Remember when only ponytailed lefty professors tossed around “fascist”? I laughed @ them.

Now, it’s happened. Here. And most of us are perfectly happy with it.

Well, they seem to be winning the test cases.

I hadn’t heard about them going after Amazon. If they are, I can only guess that means they’re uping the ante on censorship.

I was 14 when it originally aired. I’m guessing I may not have seen it (too late at night). But, yes, it is hilarious (watch for the scene-stealing Phil Hartman as Ted Kennedy fawning over Kitty Dukakis).

Alas, you realize their leftist ideology was a failed loser and marginalized by 1988, but yet today those radical and discredited forces hijacked our nation today. It shows how much we’ve changed for the worse... :-(

I just clicked on it, a short commercial ran and the video played OK. I tried 3 other websites that claimed to have the video and it was taken down. You might try it again and see, unless something is blocking it on your server ? :-\
