His Opinion Isn't Valid Because He's White and Rich

One of MSNBC's in-house progtards, the lovely Alex Wagner, along with her three liberal guests, ripped Jerry Seinfeld on her MSNBC program for his blast at "creepy" political correctness. Wagner hinted that Seinfeld had "fallen behind the times."  

That was the que that it was off to the races (pun intended):
New York magazine's Annie Lowrey mocked his critique: "I kind of roll my eyes at Jerry Seinfeld. You know, he's a billionaire – like I don't feel sorry for him if people don't laugh hard enough at his jokes.. So, you know, I really think that – that PC culture owes a lot to social media, where, all of a sudden, people – in this case, college kids – can say – hey! You know, I was a young gay person – and I constantly had to hear jokes like this, and it's really not cool.  
Bloomberg Politics's Dave Weigel remarked: "no one wants to think they've stopped being cool or they stopped being relevant – or especially, that they – that they're now a bigot because they believe something they've always believed. There is no down side; there is no social pressure backlash for Jerry Seinfeld here. He still has all of his cars – the gigantic fleet of cars. "I think he's made $820 million in his career. So,the exile will be comfortable."  
MSNBC's Dorian Warren attacked the comedian:  "I think it's so cheap and easy to be able to insult people who are socially're afraid to be criticized, because you can't come up with funny jokes that don't insult people."  (News Busters)
But when it comes to political correctness, as in talking about race, only whites are the holy grail of fodder. Anyone who is unfortunate to land on a black television network comedy show will regularly hear routines about Crazy White people,  like this..... 

Let's change Ireland to Baltimore, Cunt to Nigger, I speak Irish to I speak hip-hop, and You drunk bastard to " you crack head intercity thug..... what do you think the PC crowd would do to a white comedian.....
