The problem with comedians getting into politics is that they don't do their research
6 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

He's not a particularly funny guy, but why does he insert himself into the gun debate and politics when he doesn't do the research? People hire him for laughs and instead he does faulty research and then tries to turn faulty research into a joke.

Michael Che has made himself into a partisan hack who uses comedy as a way to promote his political beliefs. I say this as a liberal who believes in many progressive policies, he's made himself into an extreme left-wing person who does poor research.

AR does not stand for "assault rifle" and arguing against ownership of rifles is exactly what he claimed he never would do (previously, now he is fine with arguing against gun ownership). He says you can't own a rifle, but he doesn't understand that rifles are no different than handguns and rifles are 0.6% of gun-deaths per year. So why attack rifles when handguns murder over 10,000 people yearly? When heart disease kills 600,000 people yearly? When car accidents kill 35,000 people yearly? If you add up hands/feet deaths from DoJ statistics with club-deaths, you get more deaths than rifles. So why doesn't he want to ban hands/feet/clubs? It can't get any less logical than this. It's an emotional argument and emotional arguments make for poor comedy.

When Michael Che tried to attack guns on Weekend Update SNL, he backed Hillary Clinton and claimed "no one is trying to take away your guns." This is unequivocally false. It's a false statement because that's exactly what Bill Clinton's "assault weapon ban" did. It took away guns. Hillary herself has said she wants to review the Australian gun ban. Obama himself has said on CNN that China banned guns and everything is just fine there and the criminals have to use knives. He literally used that example. So "no one is trying to take away guns" is a LIE.

Lies like this give fuel to right-wing movements. They can point to your lies, and gather recruits. So why is he lying, misinforming his audiences, and sabotaging the Democratic cause? It's only gonna hurt himself in the end.

How can you turn falsehoods into comedy? Comedy and hilarity comes from TRUTH. It comes from Satire and irony based on the truth. He's not a very funny guy and he's trying to make a name for himself by being extremely left. Don't bother watching this on Netflix. Waste of time.
