The Schmidt theatre in Hamburg dismisses one of its stars for a joke. It is just the latest cancel culture absurdity and I will run you though the joke and provide its cultural context. Some waiters did not like to hear it and complained to the owners of the place.
Comedy used to be equally irreverant to all groups and Mr Ray does not wish to apologize. He insists on his right to express himself and pledges to continue the production of art worth its name. Despite these dire corona times, which are difficult for many industries and as such also for stand-up artists, he is now searching for a new opportunity
The joke text in the original:
Kay Ray macht Witze über den Islam und wird gefeuert
Hollyweird is a SJW cult. True. They have hijacked brands and franchises and they squeeze the last bit of fun out of beloved characters and ideas. But the professionals in L.A. do it voluntarily. They exploit and plunder what their elders had left them. As dire as this image is it could be worse.
Cut to Germany: For decades everybody with a thought of his own has been shouted off the stages. The theatres and microphones are under the firm control of the mediocre. Barely anything of value is produced and the entire industry is uncommercial. They cannot stand international competition, but that does not mean they would not compete at all. They have to be accepted in the circle of the cult, and for that they need to produce content and raise funding. #Arts in Germany today is dependent on government #subsidies.
This year the movie subsidy office of the city state of Hamburg and the state of Schleswig-Holstein have compiled a mandatory application form for the inclusion of the inclusively included inclues, the diverse and multisexual. I run you through the questionaire so that you, too, can raise government funds to produce #propaganda garbage one day. Maybe you’ll be lucky and your work gets aired on the public broadcasters *gush*.
