The “Political Correctness” Misdirection Play 0

In an interview, Julia Louis-Dreyfus takes issue with Jerry Seinfeld’s recent complaint about what he dubbed “PC crap.”

“If you look back on comedy and drama both, let’s say 30 years ago, through the lens of today, you might find bits and pieces that don’t age well,” she said. “And I think to have an antenna about sensitivities is not a bad thing. It doesn’t mean that all comedy goes out the window as a result.”

The Veep actress said pushing back on political correctness could be a “red flag.”

“When I hear people starting to complain about political correctness — and I understand why people might push back on it — but to me that’s a red flag, because it sometimes means something else,” she said. “I believe being aware of certain sensitivities is not a bad thing. I don’t know how else to say it.”

My take is simple.

When persons start complaining about “PC crap,” it’s generally because they don’t like being called out for being mean for the sake of mean.
