A conservative with a sense of humor

Did you know Greg Gutfeld wrote a book a couple of years ago entitled, The Joy of Hate: How to Triumph Over Whiners in the Age of Phony Outrage. In this video, he speaks at the Reagan library in California. He says he had a lot in common with President Reagan. Reagan was the governor of California, and Greg was a citizen of California. Reagan was once a Democrat, and Greg once bought a counterfeit watch in Times Square.

Questions from the audience indicated that Greg is popular because he is a conservative with a sense of humor.

Greg notices how many leftists cover their car with bumper stickers because they want you to know how they feel all the time.

Conservatives, Greg says, believe in competition, while leftists believe in self esteem. Where are the highest incidence of people with high self esteem? Prisons! Criminals believe they can commit crimes because they deserve it! "I don't have to work for it. I take it!"

America has replaced exceptionalism with tolerance. Greg was hopeful that we would learn how to communicate the value of free markets, free minds, individual freedom and hard work. Presciently, Greg tells the audience "We have two years to find someone to run for president who is funny and interesting."

Here is his talk.
