The opening line "Ex-Marine, Nick... who lost both of his hands in Iraq". Maybe you should watch it again.
Making jokes about current issues is one thing... this is quite another. you're right, there is no grey area... this falls under the outright wrong. If it was just "someone with metal hands trying to fight in the UFC" fine.
How is them setting the scene with a current, believable, story offensive? They are not in any way shape or form making fun of soldiers who have been injured they are simply using it as a believable (because it is current) setting for the joke about the metal hands.
You are twisting it all around to suit your argument. Simply mentioning that he lost his hands in the Iraq war is not making fun of anyone or anything. If I use a playground as a setting am I automatically making fun of kids? If I use a police station as the setting for my comedy am I automatically making fun of all police officers and those who were injured in the line of duty? Would you be offended by this?
'Cause it is exactly the same thing.
Yes real people are being injured in Iraq every day. Does that mean it should be illegal for any war movie to be comedy? How long do we wait until it's okay to make a show like MASH? I guess MASH would be offensive since real people are dying in war every day?
This video will not negatively or positively affect anyone in any way shape or form which is the only basis for censoring any type of speech in a free country.
And you must have misunderstood my comment about the "grey area". I meant in free speech there is no grey area. Either there is censorship or there isn't, and what you are talking about is straight up censorship.
