Ricky Gervais, Liberal Champagne Socialist With Brain

Everyone that’s being fired and publicly embarrassed about a misdemeanor and being called a Nazi — there are real Nazis who are getting away with it. This must be amazing for real racists to be out there, and going, “It’s all right, everyone’s a racist now, this is a great smokescreen, we’ve got people out there calling people who aren’t Nazis, Nazis. . . .
They don’t know the real Nazis from people who said the wrong thing once!” . . .
It plays into the hands of the genuinely bad people.

Ricky Gervais is
making sense with Sam Harris

Some foul language.

The first hour of a two-hour-long conversation between Sam Harris and Ricky Gervais. (You’ll have to pay a tiny amount of dollars to listen to the rest of it and many more interviews on Sam Harris’ website.) Gervais – stand-up comedian, actor, director, and screenwriter, shares his opinion on the impact of social media, the changing state of comedy, off-color jokes, political hypocrisy, Louis CK, Donald Trump, and other topics.

If you’re conservative, most of Gervais’ opinions (particularly his comments on Pres. Trump) won’t trigger any round of applause. Still, sometimes it’s good to hear the different points of view, especially when the person you’re listening to is cool, calm, and articulate.
