Friday, October 16, 2015 petitions to keep Donald Trump off SNL

I belong to so you don't have to.

I am not supporting Donald Trump for the Republican nominee for President and think he is somewhat of a carnival barker and a joke. However, I think he would make a great host for Saturday Night Live. He is entertaining.

I am posting this email solicitation from Move ON as an example of the bullying, anti free speech position of the left. The left loves to preach tolerance and acceptance. They are only tolerant and accepting however of those with whom they already agree. They like diversity- as long as it is diversity on the left end of the spectrum. They tout free speech as long as it is politically correct free speech.

I know this does not reflect the view of everyone left of center and I know there are those right of center who also would like to silence those with whom they disagree, but it is not conservatives who shout down speakers on college campuses and impose speech codes. 

Dear MoveOn member,

"Saturday Night Live" recently announced that Donald Trump would serve as host of the program on November 7, 2015, one year from the 2016 general election. The popular comedy show, which has been criticized for not adequately representing Latinos, is broadcast by NBC—the same network that terminated its relationship with Donald Trump over his derogatory comments about Mexican immigrants.  Now, just three months after cutting ties with Donald Trump, NBC is seeking to boost its ratings at the expense of Latinos and immigrants by allowing Trump to host one of its most popular shows.

Will you join me in calling on NBCUniversal Chairman of Content Matt Bond and "Saturday Night Live" Producer Lorne Michaels to dump Trump?

Mass deportation is not funny! By allowing Donald Trump to host "Saturday Night Live," NBC is excusing and even validating Trump's hateful comments about immigrants and Latinos. Tell NBC to dump Donald Trump as host of "Saturday Night Live!"

By inviting Donald Trump to host "Saturday Night Live," NBC is demonstrating that it doesn't care about its Latino and pro-immigrant viewers. It is providing a platform for Trump's insulting attacks on immigrants and calling it entertainment—something we do not find funny. It is shameful for NBC to allow Donald Trump to host "Saturday Night Live," a comedy show, when one of the main policies he has promised would rip apart millions of immigrant and Latino families. NBC cannot bill hateful rhetoric as comedy, much less entertainment. Tell NBC to drop Donald Trump as host of "Saturday Night Live!"
