ICYMI: Triumph the Insult Comic Dog ends campus political correctness as we know it

posted at 6:41 pm on February 12, 2016 by Allahpundit

At the end of a long week, it came down to a choice between posting this as a palate cleanser or posting about Jim Gilmore finally suspending his campaign-in-theory. I chose the newsier of the two developments, a guy using a sock to goof on college students.

It’s 10 minutes long but worth every second. My one criticism is that the students aren’t nearly as pissy as you’d like them to be to make a bit like this work as well as it could, although that’s probably unavoidable. How many hardcore Social Justice Warriors are going to sign up for a panel to try to explain “intersectionality” to a dog puppet on some comedian’s hand? Most of the kids here take everything in good humor — although look out for the blonde in the glasses, who does seem like maybe she wandered into the wrong room on her way to the Campus Feminists meeting. It was an act of mercy that Robert Smigel didn’t zero in on her as his prime target for the sketch, which could have been a lot of fun.

There’s some profanity here so do what Rubio would do and make sure the kiddies are in another room.

Saw this earlier, it is hilarious but terribly sad!

It was funny but too long. I have the attention span of a gnat when it comes to online videos.

Haven’t seen the video yet but going by the the screen cap in this thread I’d say the guy on the bottom row, far left has a different expression than good humor.

Trump Triumph for president!

I absolutely hate this election. Feel my pain, Eeyorepundit.

Aizen on February 12, 2016 at 6:53 PM

This gives me hope. Not because of the students, though. Because Robert Smigel was willing to break the comedy embargo imposed on us by Barack Obama.

Anyone recall the rodeo clown who dared try this earlier? He’s been re-educated.

MaxMBJ on February 12, 2016 at 6:53 PM

Ouch. My milk just came out of my nose.

unclesmrgol on February 12, 2016 at 6:55 PM

Tragically, not one of those students actually learned a damned thing from that encounter. Heads full of dog poop Marxist mush.

oscarwilde on February 12, 2016 at 6:56 PM

This is absolutely awesome. The poor brainwashed students were terrified of breaking the PC code.

darwin on February 12, 2016 at 6:59 PM

Our educational system is good…for me to poop on!

What’s the politically correct term for a festival masquerading individual who has been specially educated to avoid any form of masquerade as our Commander In Chief?

Ah, I got it: Presidential.

unclesmrgol on February 12, 2016 at 6:59 PM

Whatever happened to rebellious youth? Are they just somewhere besides this classroom? The way things are now, being Conservative is subversive. Are they just on their best behavior thinking their professors will see this?

trubble on February 12, 2016 at 7:01 PM

I loved the video and watched it a few times. I am now convinced this kids were in on the joke and are very good actors — especially the girl in the glasses, a great straight man, and pretty cute with here expressions of dismay.

Nomennovum on February 12, 2016 at 7:01 PM

The part where he asks the girl to explain “manplaining” is hilarious.

darwin on February 12, 2016 at 7:02 PM

Holy moley, that was much funnier than I expected!

Nah … the fear was palatable in those kids.

Sorry for the iPhone quality of my comment.

Nomennovum on February 12, 2016 at 7:04 PM

It’s a good idea to avoid any girl wearing glasses, as a general rule.

That’s okay, it reminded me of hagfish.

What a bunch of joyless, naive twits. And those “men” in the group.

We’re doomed, folks.

RedNewEnglander on February 12, 2016 at 7:11 PM

AP a little late on this.

Was so good I wondered in was staged too. What incentive those kids from not walking out or lashing out.

Triumph did another GOP one last week. Check it.

Bespectacled girls appreciate your bias.

Oh, bringing in a sketch artist was great.

Wow, I’ve never seen kids try to look so smug and stifle laughter like that.

Those guys were all neutered. Sad.

And people are talking about the draft – LMAO. Imagine any of them being drafted.

ExpressoBold on February 12, 2016 at 7:30 PM

I don’t think those kids were in on it. I think they really are that brainwashed beta personalities. Not even beta, those were omega males and females.

That is our future people. The men are girls, and the girls are even less.

Then how will you get to your parents money?

Mr Soames on February 12, 2016 at 7:35 PM

The kids must have been paid to sit there and take it.

Either that, or the whole generation is low-T.

Hopefully in the future Smigel will write and edit his bits around your attention span.

I said it was a “in general” rule, but you avoid ***coughAvaTaylorcough*** in specific so as to not get a nasty rash and blisters that keep coming back, year after year.

Are you trying to tell me that you have genital herpes? I was referring to the attractiveness of the young lady in particular, not a lifelong disease…

Trust me. Getting drafted, thrown into boot camp, and then shipped off to war changes you real quick.

Most of them are phoning it in, anyway.

I can honestly say this video was worth the entire ten minutes. It was glorious. In a vaginasplaining way.

ArthurMachado on February 13, 2016 at 12:20 AM

What a bunch of sad sacks. These weren’t even beta-males. Gamma-males maybe. Spines of foam. They were schooled by a rubber dog with a cigar!

It was funny how accurate the artist’s sketch was though.

Psycroptic on February 13, 2016 at 12:25 AM

None of them even cracked a smile. They were all mortified. We are doomed. Millennials are such weak individuals it is scary.

Tried the “I identify as a shin guard” shtick last night.

Failed.

PrettyD_Vicious on February 13, 2016 at 12:38 PM

This looks like a group of kids who are deeply offended that this humor exists but, have gone along with it to “show” that they can be tolerant even though it looks like they all ate a sack of lemons.

notalemon on February 13, 2016 at 12:41 PM

Trust me. These kids were NOT acting.

I have plenty of millennials and the generation after them that work for me.

The millennials are super PC while the generation below them (those currently in high school) not so much.

One millennial girl was talking to me about “a transgendered woman of color” and I said “you mean a black drag queen?”

The look of horror on her face was so worth it. I just died laughing.

johnnyboy on February 13, 2016 at 12:44 PM

I wonder how many of these kids would accuse religious people of being prudish and having a stick up their a$$.
Because these kids sure looked like they had sticks up their a$$3$. The uncomfortable-ness of these folks was hilarious to watch.

OccamsRazor on February 13, 2016 at 2:02 PM

My one criticism is that the students aren’t nearly as pissy as you’d like them to be…

That’s because they did not have a social justice warrior field-marshal in charge to tell them what to do.

Mizzou mass media “professor” Melissa Click wasn’t there to bestir them to outrage or whip them into a frothing mob brimming with muscle that could be brought to bear against the hapless hand puppet.

Today’s college kids are programmed from their youngest days to not think for themselves and to not be the initiators of action — only to follow orders from higher up within the hive.

FlameWarrior on February 13, 2016 at 4:54 PM

The students seemed annoyed that their world view is being made fun of. The black homosexual played his part perfectly though.
