This is what the left considers humor in 2018.
The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards featured a cornucopia of liberal vitriol, from racist jokes to jabs at conservatives but the anti-Christian humor is what left many viewers angry.
The opening monologue of the show Monday featured ceremony hosts, Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che, who insulted Christian conservatives to the delight of the audience.
Che noted that his mom would not be watching the award show because “She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough… The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”
The ‘joke’ continued to run as a theme through the night, reinforced when apparently no white person thanked God.
“I don’t even believe in God, but I’m going to thank her tonight,” Thandie Newton, the winner of Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for “Westworld,” said.
The Emmy’s ceremony had the predictable swipes at conservatives during the show, with self-congratulatory speeches about diversity in Hollywood, and even a presentation of “Reparation Emmys,” following Che’s announcement that he wanted to “finally right some of those wrongs.”

But the swipe at Christians was a “low blow” for RNC spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany who slammed the “lowest-rated award show” that has become “irrelevant” during an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday.

McEnany was not alone as many Twitter users sounded off on the insult as well.
The very reason I don’t watch. As a Christian and Republican, my values are challenged every day. I don’t need to hear it from whining Hollywood malcontents

Michael Che – do not knock JC – Jesus is just all right with me. #emmys

99.9% of all actors/actresses thank God or Jesus for their success when winning an award. Someone needs to make a compilation of that and send it to #Emmy host Michael Chen. You are dissing your own people.

Latest Alt-Left drive-by. If a conservative host had said something similar about the beliefs of a Liberal Dumbocrat the skies would have opend up with criticism and a call for the person to be fired.

Who would know more about crackheads and less about Jesus than the “stars” in Hollywood.

It’s really sad the Emmys decided to alienate half the country! Some people want to just watch their favorite actors get awards, NOT be derided for their politics on live TV!!! https://t.co/kaAK7snJrw
