Writing for Breitbart.com, John Nolte showed more perspicacity than almost anyone I’ve seen relative to the unexpected death of comedian Joan Rivers. Nolte wrote:

“With the death of Joan Rivers at 81 Thursday, we lost one more icon in a dwindling breed: the comedian who does not seek the good opinion of the powerful media and entertainment elite.

“Just two months before her death, Rivers mocked President Obama as ‘gay’ and First Lady Michelle Obama as a ‘tranny,’ and caught hell for it from the likes of the Huffington Post. Those servants to power chided: ‘Rivers took her “jokes” too far yet again this week, when she hurled a trans slur at the first lady.’”

Nolte continued: “Now Rivers is gone and outside of a handful of comedic insurgents like Don Rickles, Dennis Miller, and Adam Carolla, we’re stuck with Politically Correct Palace Guards like Jon Stewart, Sarah Silverman, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Will Ferrell, Lena Dunham, Ricky Gervais, the cast of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ and pretty much everyone associated with Funny or Die–all big government-loving cowards desperate to fit into a comedic class that believes political correctness is a virtue and those who buck it should be held up to ridicule.”

Nolte again: “Joan Rivers attacked everyone–from Michelle Obama to Sarah Palin. Whether you enjoyed her style or not, it was nice knowing that someone–someone!– was out there with the courage to invite the kind of outrage that causes a Huffington Post to accuse you of going too far.”

Nolte concluded his column by saying, “Now Rivers is gone, and any up-and-comer who wanted to take her place, who dared call Michelle Obama a ‘tranny’ during open-mic night at the legendary Comedy Store, would be booed off the stage and blacklisted until she publicly recanted.

“No one will ever call Michelle Obama a ‘tranny’ again, and that is not a good thing, nor is it progress.”

See Nolte’s column here:

RIP Joan Rivers: No One Will Ever Call Michelle Obama A ‘Tranny’ Again

I wholeheartedly agree with Nolte on this one. I have said much the same thing many times. America’s political correctness knows neither left nor right. Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals, Christians and secularists equally share the political correctness disease. But the media and entertainment industries are not only infected with the disease; they are carriers. And, with very few exceptions, they will even turn against their own in a heartbeat should someone touch the politically-incorrect “third rail.” If you don’t believe that, just talk to Mel Gibson or Alec Baldwin.

That most of Joan’s peers did NOT crucify her for her statement that Michelle Obama is a transvestite makes me tend to believe that they all know Joan told the truth and just didn’t have the courage to say it. Plus, she was JOAN RIVERS: the quintessential icon of the entertainment left.

My question is, what if Joan Rivers actually told the TRUTH about the Obamas? What if it’s true that Barack and Michelle (or is the name Michael?) really are homosexuals, that Michelle really is a man, and that they have pulled off the greatest political hoax in the history of the United States? The timing of Rivers’ death is an incredible coincidence, if it’s not true. That is for sure.
