No one said anything about any Illuminati-esque groups.
Who in America decides what's okay and not okay for Americans to do?
There are certain things people used to do decades ago that they couldn't do now without getting penalized for it.
For example, it used to be fashionable or socially acceptable to make jokes about homosexuality because that was something looked down upon. You can't do that now because LGBTQIA advocacy groups will be after you.
You can't be publicly racist, especially on social media, and not get penalized for it. Look what happened to people like Hulk Hogan, or Roseanne Barr or Rachel Ray or Micheal Richards or Gilbert Godfrey. I don't know if people could get away with being publicly racist decades ago; I don't know.
This isn't necessary a racial thing. I've read accounts of some African Americans who've lost their jobs or got in trouble some other kind of way because they were publicly racist.
The reason a comedian like Dave Chappelle can do racist jokes is he's not doing it with malicious intent. People know he's joking.
There are things people used to do that they can't can't do now because of "snowflakes".
I remember reading an account of some East Indian/Middle Eastern comedian who was either a cast member of SNL or a writer of that show, and was invited to do standup in front a college crowd somewhere. He got in trouble because the audience was getting offended by the jokes he was telling and he was asked to leave.
This is the reason Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock said they don't do standup in front of college crowds anymore; college kids get TOO easily offended these days. This has to do with political correctness.
