Steyn: There’s Noah Business Like Shoah Business

On Monday, when Trevor Noah landed the gig as Jon Stewart’s replacement, Salon’s headline writers assured us:

Right-Wing Rage At ‘The Daily Show’ Is About To Get Very, Very Ugly

That’s because Trevor Noah is a mixed-race South African, and everyone knows right-wingers are ugly racists consumed with rage over miscegenation. As it turned out, there was not a peep from rage-consumed righties, perhaps because they don’t watch “The Daily Show” and had never heard of Trevor Noah, or perhaps because they were preoccupied with inconsequential foot-of-page-37 news stories like the nuclearization of Iran.

So instead by Tuesday morning it was the left that was all in a lather – or as those self-same Salon headline writers put it a mere 24 hours after their previous headline:

Did Trevor Noah’s Twitter History Just Kill ‘The Daily Show’?

That’s because the lefties were all mad about the oddly misogynist and anti-Semitic Twitter feed of Mr Noah, full of jests about porking fat chicks and running over a Jewish kid in his German car – which is certainly a strange choice of joke for a 21st century comic…

      Sounds like the offensive tweets were crafted specifically to generate media buzz for Mr. Noah.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        Perhaps.
        But is it too much to ask that they be funny?

        • luna

          Actually some of these tweets are old. On second thought this guy may just be an a–hole.

    When you want to be a comedian in an ineptly run but vibrantly violent black kleptocracy like South Africa, a sense of what is safe to say must be job #1.
    Making jokes about witch doctors who are consulted by morons with AIDS being told raping girl babies will cure them and who proceed to do exactly that probably wouldn’t fly.

      Not to worry, the commies have it covered; ‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.’

    an Obama approved comedian.. mixed race, from Africa, thinks he is really smart.
    have never laughed at Stewart or Colbert … nor this guy

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Yes.
      Comedians approved by the bureaucracy of the Ministry of Silly Talks.
      Late night is dead to me.

        I’m safe… no tv.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          I wasn’t a hipster douchebag back in the nineties because I didn’t have a TV.
          I was just poor and living in a 12×20 foot cockroach infested basement suite downtown.
          I used to write back then.

          • Surele Surele

            and?

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Now I’m a hipster douchebag because I don’t have a cellphone.
            Really, it’s just because I’m cheap.
            And if I’m not at work or at home then I am on Schrodinger’s Highway.

      • mauser 98

        he will play race card against any critics

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Kind of like the gene for sickle cell anemia inoculates people against malaria.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Ooh, do I have to explain that metaphor?
            Not getting a lot of takers.

          • Minicapt

            Nope …
            Wait till someone queries him about his people following the white man into South Africa.

            Cheers

    He fits right in to the Poo Generation…. epitome of the times

  • Clausewitz

    The only thing funny is that for someone who hates the US so much, why would he be going there for a job? Funny that.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    S.Africa isn’t funny.

  • Hard Little Machine

    The left, TDS left will always shriek and whine when you call them on something but that’s their intention all along. Like Obama, the point of everything is to double down. Don’t like his tweets? Fine, now his show will be openly antisemitic, racist and woman hating. Proudly.

    Steyn is right in that there are a lot of people who don’t care who is on the Daily Show. He should have also added “Who gives a damn what faggy Salon magazine says about anything”?
