Daily Show Co-Creator Laughs at ‘Targeted’ Tornadoes Victims


insideMONKEY_Lizz-WinsteadThe folks at Comedy Central like to maintain that they are in the business of being clowns. They’re right, except that clowns typically make jokes at the expense of both sides of the political aisle. If Lizz Winstead is any evidence, the clowns at Comedy Central are unfair and unbalanced.

Winstead, the co-creator of the Daily Show on Comedy Central, took the opportunity on Monday to tweet about the tornadoes ravaging Oklahoma. First:  “How long as Obama known about this Tornado?”  Then she followed up with a doozy: “This tornado,” she tweeted, “is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives.”

Outrage quickly ensued on Twitter, and Winstead pulled back from this offensive contention. But this wasn’t the first time she had used tornadoes in Oklahoma tastelessly for a cheap, pro-Obama shot. Back in April 2012, after the Oklahoma Senate killed a bill that would have allowed for alternatives to teaching of climate change, she tweeted, “GOPklahoma geniuses finally realized those tornadoes didn’t just show up onna count they were bored.” In other words, tornadoes happen because conservatives don’t wholeheartedly believe in anthropogenic climate change.

People who tweet about certain areas getting the natural disasters they deserve areas generally have a label: jerks. But for Hollywood, the real jerkiness is denying climate change. If you deny that driving an SUV somehow kills polar bears, you are not only uncouth, you are immoral. You can participate in rape of an underage child (Roman Polanski), murder (O.J), driving under the influence (everyone), and get away with it. But if you’re driving a Hummer while doing any of those things, you’re evil.

Climate change belief has become a substitute for moral belief in Hollywood. That’s why so many Hollywoodites spend their time pushing the green agenda. Only worship of Mother Earth could lead investors to sink $15 million into the waste of time and effort Promised Land. Only belief in Gaia could lead to an investment of $175 million in Waterworld (which grossed $88 million domestically). Environmentalist movies in Hollywood are far more common than movies about the dangers of terrorism.

The Hollywood set sees itself as the standard-bearer for the “civilization has ruined nature” clique. Of course, they bear that standard from high atop their energy-consuming mansions in the Hollywood Hills, while being chauffeured aboard their private jets. And they never seem to realize that while Americans have the luxury of worrying about gas guzzlers, the poor folks in the rest of the world don’t. The only way to raise those countries up financially is to produce goods and products that make lives easier. And the only way to do that is to embrace capitalism.

But Hollywood won’t do that. So Tinseltown is stuck between a rock and a hard place, trying to claim that the same capitalism that could end pollution is the cause of pollution (even as non-capitalist China leads global pollutant countries, and plutocratic Russia comes in third).

So instead, Hollywood will rail at all those rubes in Oklahoma. They’ll pretend that they’re doing something righteous and good by railing at the dupes who vote Republican in the sticks.

Then they’ll take the bucks they earn from mocking middle America, buy fuel efficient vehicles, and – in the imagery of South Park – create a cloud of smug over cities like Los Angeles. It’s even uglier than smog, and twice as irritating.

    Take a good look at the sick, self-righteous, deluded b…. These are the same types who think gulags and firing squads are funny, as long as it is their political enemies being imprisoned and killed. These are political sociopaths peddling their sociopathic humor. I'm sure she doesn't have a clue as to why her "jokes" aren't funny or are seen as depraved. Sociopaths don't have compassion or understand human emotion.

    That has to be a pretty old picture.

      Please put warning labels on photos like that. I'm still dry heaving over it.

    They are not liberals. They are leftists. There is nothing liberal about them. They have nothing to do with the writings and legacies of real liberals like John Locke and Adam Smith.

    • Guest

      No, they're "progressives" :)

      • kikorikid

        inadequate- Social-Justice Progressives is their full moniker.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          "inadequate- Social-Justice Progressives is their full moniker."

          They're all delusional communists but won't respond to that call. So we entertain their delusions just long enough to get their attention when we need to talk things over.

  • no name

    She might nit be joking, were they spraying chemtrails before it happened? Perhaps abeed Hussein Obama not only knew about, but, caused it.

  • SoCalMike

    Omar echoes what I have been saying and the winning essays precisely and elegantly express.
    They aren't liberals. They are leftists and fascists hiding behind an American term they hijacked for purposes of camoflauge and subterfuge.

  • Jim Walter

    That pic of Lizz Winstead, I can't tell for sure…is that a cloud of smug on her mug, or a smirk of a jerk?

  • Lan Astaslem

    Another liberal schmuck – what else is new?

  • PhillipGaley

    “This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives.”?

    Lizz Winstead betrays her poorly formed character, . . . so, . . . what's new?

  • BS77

    90% of TV is garbage. The news, the comedy shows, the talking heads….awful.

    Lizz and the Hollywood ilk disgust me. I do not go to movies because I will not support them. Most of them have little or no education. They get paid millions to read scripts someone else wrote; dress in clothes someone else designed; and pretend to be someone they're not—AND get multiple takes to get it right. Try being a nurse, doctor, EMT, police officer or firefighter–these people save lives, sometimes lose their lives and they don't get a do-over.
    Boycott Hollywood.

      Doctor's and nurses also get sued by slip-&-fall lawyers.

      But with Osamacare kicking in, they'll be retiring by the bushel.

    Apparently none these self identifying geniuses can read.
    The planet has been "warming" for 10,000 years. Just as all life on this planet is,the earth is in a constant state of change and evolution.

    Tornadoes require strong wind shear (wind speed and direction changing rapidly with height in the lower atmosphere), the kind which develops when cold and warm air masses “collide”. They have nothing to do with global warming.

    We haven't seen serve tornadoes for decades.
    The worst tornadoes in recorded history were 1890-1930

    The St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area has a history of tornadoes. The 1896 St. Louis – East St. Louis tornado, injured more than one thousand people and caused at least 255 fatalities.
    More tornado fatalities occurred in St. Louis than any other city in the United States. Also noteworthy is that destructive tornadoes occurred in winter and autumn, as well as the typical months of spring. Additionally, damaging tornadoes occurred in the morning and late at night, as well as the more common late afternoon to early evening maximum period.

    There are thousands of records like;
    1974 USA, Southern U.S. – Mississippi Valley tornado outbreak – 4 fatalities Outbreak ended only 17 hours before Super Outbreak began in same areas .10 significant, 3 violent, 4 killer Tornadoes.
    1974 USA, Super Outbreak , Eastern United States to Ontario – 319 fatalities .The second largest recorded outbreak .95 significant, 30 violent ,6 – F5, 24 – F4, 49 killer Tornadoes.
    1974 USA, Great Plains tornado outbreak -22 Fatalities .
    22 Significant, 4 Violent, 4 Killer Tornadoes.

    Leave it to a small minded ,uninformed ,hateful liberal to make such an ignorant "joke."
    I doubt the parents of deceased children are laughing.

    If your dumb enough to believe in global warming, your a non thinker…or very easily lead be the nose. It has become extremely obvious there is no global warming…and in the words of CNN's Erin Brown…" we do not know enough about the weather to understand it" or something very close to that…… Progressives never tell the truth…

  • WilliamJamesWard

    The farther away from decency these jerks in TV comedy can get the better they are
    liked by thier moronic fans and idiot peers. Ignoring them is smart but knowing they
    are there is enoying at best. Tragedy is not funny, Winstead is way off base……….William
