No Joking in the Authoritarian Society of the 21st Century

Take My Liberty, Please: Censorship is No Joke. Literally. No Jokes Allowed.

Take my freedom, please.

Jokes on a plane and jokes by a standup comedian on stage at a comedy club have resulted in police action — in the USA.

Meanwhile, in Brazil, a comedian was jailed for a political joke.

It’s an 11 minute video. But worth it.

The one guy was thrown off a Southwest Airlines flight for making a JOKE. The other case, a comedian made a joke about himself, and a person in the audience called 911 because they didn’t “feel safe.” No Jokes allowed.
