Comedian asked to sign “safe space” contract for campus gig to avoid “triggering” snowflakes

David MenziesMission Specialist

Was it comedy or tragedy when standup comedian Konstantin Kisin was asked to sign a social justice “contract” prior to his gig at London University demanding that he steer clear of subject matter that might be too “triggering” for the snowflakes on campus.


And what are the no-go zones, you ask?

Well, there’s racism, sexism, ageism, classism, ableism, biphobia, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, anti-religion and anti-atheism, and because this is 2018, “Islamophobia” gets a special mention as opposed to being covered off by the term “anti-religion.”

In the final analysis, what is there left to joke about?

An incredulous Kisin recently posted the contract on Twitter, where it took top spot for the most unintentionally funny piece of black humour on social media.

Meanwhile, up in heaven, a roster of funny men from Don Rickles to Sam Kinison, weep.

David, you know you can’t say “black humour”. Its racist, appropriation of the humour of blacks, and isn’t inclusive.

At least they didn’t include (how dare they!) chamber pot/toilet humour.

In Canada 80% of university courses are a ridiculous waste of time and money………most university professors don’t deserve minimum wage.
It’s hilarious how PC and scared of the truth they are.
You could learn more in any library.

Employer’s that have to make a profit are apparently hiring people from Private Universities, as their Business skills are better than the big public names. Lately the lack of Free Speech at these Public Universities is helping to develop even worse job candidates.
There doesn’t seem to be a correction on the near horizon. The only solution according to Jordon Peterson is to retrain or replace the Professors.

By these standards, Russell Peters’ and Jeff Dunham’s careers are finished.

These snowflakes are a joke without a punchline.

Take heart me righties; all those ‘isms’ are backed by little thinking assholes.

How sad that even my tame humour would be forbidden on campuses. These SJWs are stealing our material and unemploying comediens.
