This is what Boston Antifa had to say after comedian and charity fundraiser Jerry Lewis passed away yesterday (hat tip: Michelle).
The lonely comedian behind his facade was a man who harbored a lot of misplaced hate and his career is nothing to idolize.
Jerry Lewis embraced the power of white supremacy throughout his career. People who found comedy in his “jokes” and characters portraying POC stereotypes are as much to blame for why we continue to deal with this situation in 2017.
Unsafe humor, as well as many problematic comics of today who were inspired from Jerry (Gilbert Gottfried for example), should be given no further platform and no praise. Let the memory of an old bigot like Jerry fade away.
Jerry Lewis was a Jewish comedian who not only entertained millions, but raised millions in charity. Yet they call him a White supremacist and bigot.
If you find yourself on the same side as these people, seriously consider just how far off your moral compass
Update: It has been claimed this is a fake Antifa account designed to discredit them.
