Iconic comedian Jerry Seinfeld has unleashed a scathing critique of what he perceives as the stifling influence of the “woke mob” on comedy, lamenting the erosion of creative freedom in the face of political correctness.

In a candid statement, Seinfeld attributed the decline of comedy to the pervasive influence of the “extreme left” and the relentless fear of offending others. “This is the result of the extreme left and PC crap and people worrying so much about offending other people,” Seinfeld asserted. He expressed frustration with the bureaucratic process of scriptwriting, where jokes are scrutinized and sanitized by numerous committees and groups, stifling the spontaneity and wit that define comedic artistry.

“They move the gates, like in skiing. Culture, the gates are moving. Your job is to be agile and clever enough that wherever they put the gates, I’m gonna make the gate,” Seinfeld declared defiantly, emphasizing the importance of adaptability and ingenuity in navigating the shifting landscape of cultural sensitivities.

Despite his own left-leaning stance, Seinfeld’s willingness to confront the excesses of woke ideology is noteworthy. His aversion to political correctness is not a recent development; a decade ago, Seinfeld openly mocked inquiries about diversity on his sitcom, ‘Seinfeld,’ during an interview with Buzzfeed.

“I have noticed that most of the guests are mostly white males. Of twenty-two episodes…”

“Yeah, let’s get into that!” Seinfeld quipped, playfully redirecting the conversation. “Take a look around, Peter,” he gestured to the audience, highlighting the demographic composition. “A lotta whitey! What’s going on here?”

Seinfeld’s disdain for political correctness was further underscored in 2015 when he revealed his decision to avoid performing on college campuses due to the perceived over-sensitivity of the younger generation.

In an era marked by heightened cultural sensitivities, Gary Seinfeld’s unapologetic stance against the encroachment of woke culture serves as a rallying cry for comedians and artists striving to preserve the essence of free expression and humor.
