“Don’t laugh, I think comedy should be deployed…It’s like, you speak violence, you speak their language. But you laugh at them, when they’re goose-stepping down the street, and it takes away their power. So, I’m suggesting that the Senate send in Amy Schumer, and Chris Rock, and Sacha Baron Cohen, thank you.”
That is what U2 frontman Bono had to say when addressing a group of Senators this past Tuesday. “Actually, that’s not the first time I’ve heard experts on how do we counter violent extremism talk about that,” Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) responded. “It’s one of the things that we’re looking at.”
Could comedy be the answer? Schumer, no stranger to politics, has stepped into the arena herself when it comes to gun laws in this country standing alongside her cousin Chuck Schumer – (D) NY on the matter.
