Comedian Claims Liberals ‘Turned Thinking into a Hate Crime’

Conservative comedian Evan Sayet spoke at the United IE Conservative Conference this past Saturday, and went on a riff about how liberals have made “thinking into a hate crime” by demonizing people’s opinions through the mere virtue of their background or white privilege.

He charged that the reason liberals really hate Fox News, the blogosphere, and conservative talk radio is because “every single one of them is a medium where debate and discussion takes part,” and liberals prefer lecturing to debating.

Sayet argued that unlike in the liberal mainstream media, conservative outlets actually welcome dissent and debate, and that makes the liberal thought police uncomfortable.

“They have cowed us into not speaking. For one thing, we’re polite. They have made debate and discussion something that is ugly. ‘You’re a racist, you’re a bigot, you’re a homophobe, you’re a xenophobe.’ They’ve actually turned thinking into a hate crime.”

And anything someone who isn’t a liberal says, he continued, is “so tainted by your personal prejudices” that the “only way not to be a bigot is to never think at all.”
