“Political Correctness — which is just a euphemism for the totalitarian concept of ‘Newspeak’ written about by Orwell in 1984 — has nearly destroyed comedy in the same way that it has nearly destroyed education, journalism and the other fields where the powers-that-be are on the Left,” Sayet told TheDCNF. “Now, just as the ‘education’ system is used to indoctrinate children and ‘journalism’ is used to give credence to Leftist policies and positions, comedy (and the whole of the entertainment industry) is used to reinforce Leftist propaganda.”
