Patton Oswalt kowtows to woke culture, says jokes about race provide ‘blueprint’ for alt-right

Warning: Language

Comedian Patton Oswalt took his kowtowing to woke culture to a new level Sunday when he took on the role of “moral arbiter” in blaming his peers for their complicity in “mapping out a blueprint” for expression he doesn’t agree with.

The standup comic joined “The Al Franken Podcast” Sunday where he spoke with fellow comedian and former Democratic Senator Al Franken of Minnesota about their shared profession and their mutual distaste for conservatism. Late in the discussion, after Oswalt had expressed his belief that a current uniformity in the Republican Party “metastasized from the Tea Party,” he fleshed out a comparison between conservatives and Nazis.

“I keep going down this rabbit hole of reading about Vienna right before the annexation, when Vienna was this very, very open society, cabaret, irony, and culture. And they were so ironic that they thought that the Nazis were a joke,” Oswalt offered.

His pseudo-intellectual diatribe continued with him explaining, “They could not imagine of someone like Hitler, who just absolutely meant exactly what he was saying with no irony, no playfulness. And it was so ridiculous to them like we did with Trump. Like, ‘This is insane. Obviously, he’s through’ — we didn’t see it coming. Cause we were so wrapped up in irony.”

“We didn’t realize we were actually mapping out a blueprint for a lot of the alt-right people and a lot of the edgelords and a lot of the sh*t posters to use for them to go ‘I’m just being ironic.,'” the comedian expressed.

It was then that he claimed to know what those “alt-right people” actually believe arguing, “No, no, you actually mean this. You’re trying to grandfather your sh*t in and we are partially responsible for doing that.”

Oswalt had tried to temper his remarks with claims that his use of free speech which he now believes was wrong is what opened up the door for others to use their free speech for what he believes is wrong.

“We thought we were beyond racism,” he said. “There was a lot of ironic racism amongst a lot of alt-comedy, a lot of Gen X, because we thought, ‘Well, we’re beyond it. We can make fun of it.'”

The only rabbit hole the comedian appears to be going down is further in the agenda of woke social justice warriors that demand their feelings be protected and their beliefs be validated. Such was the case when he issued a lengthy apology for simply appearing with Dave Chappelle whom he argued has been a friend for 34 years.

His belief that he could speak for other comedians didn’t land well for Nick DiPaolo, a right-leaning comic and podcaster who didn’t hold back in calling out his peer’s nonsense.

“What an elitist d*ckwad! A stand up ‘comedian’ for censorship! There’s your irony you f*ckin little garden gnome,” DiPaolo wrote of Oswalt’s lack of self-awareness. “Who the f*ck are you to be the moral arbiter?”

Oswalt rebutted DiPaolo and argued, “if you listen to the interview I’m calling MYSELF out as well — there were a lot of us doing ironic ‘racism’ back in the aughts, and it led to some bad sh*t,” before claiming a particular headline was the opposite of what he said.
