An article at The Federalist titled “Seinfeld’s ‘Comedians In Cars’ Is A Welcome Respite From The Insufferable Wokeness Of Comedy” had comedian Chris Rock praising Jerry Seinfeld while linking the story:
Seinfeld Is A Respite From The Insufferable Wokeness Of Comedy https://t.co/w1Y5YtPdqw. Thank God for Jerry.

Guess what happened next!
Wow, humorless, woke leftists are really pissed off that Chris Rock tweeted an article from @FDRLST

Bingo! Rock’s tweet got some blowback, that’s for sure:

The criticism that came back at Rock for that tweet had many noticing the irony:
The responses to @chrisrock tweeting an article from @FDRLST are exactly why the article needed to be written. Good lord, how do these people put on their panties successfully every morning? https://t.co/B2tiHPRD9U

Chris, listen to me. You and Jerry have a *right* to be upset to what the 'woke mobs' are doing to comedy.
They are now going to stream in and tell you to shut up, apologize and remember your place.
Tell them to f off.

The incensed replies to this just drive home the author's point and the need for entertainment like Seinfeld is producing. https://t.co/TNDC5PnIeA

So what’s next?
What are the odds he deletes this perfectly logical tweet and apologizes? https://t.co/3PL9gYhiKs

GASP! He is reading from one of the unapproved publications! SJW Twitter Mob, activate! Attack until the apology tweet!
