Every time I read a story like this I'm reminded of the studies which show that just 8% of the population are sensitive snowflakes that can't separate jokes from genuine hate yet they are given the time of day to have someone like this de-platformed. What we need now is not a partisan group on one side of the fence or the other. We need media outlets that will take this BS head on and ask the hard questions like 'does the average person even give a rat's arse about 10 year old edgy jokes?' Only then will the snowflakes lose their influence.
