I always considered him a bit of a douchebag, but he's a funny douchebag, and he's outdone himself here trolling the Social Justice Police.










































A little earlier this afternoon Patton Oswalt began trolling Twitter and the rest of the internet, trying to drum up outrage over nothing. Literally, nothing.



















What he did was simple: He started posting tweets that referenced and apologized for tweets he says he deleted because they were offensive, but of course the "deleted tweets” weren’t real. They never were. So this is what his feed looked like:























































Thousands of angry tweets ensued.














Salon.com is particularly butt-hurt.




































Is there anything remotely amusing about watching a guy using his considerable talents to simultaneously mock the stupid and needle the allegedly "humorless” online? Far be it from me to judge how anyone spends their free time, but as a spectator sport, shooting fish in a barrel leaves a lot to be desired.


































Hell yes, It's amusing

Only thing I know him from is Constable Bob from Justified.

I'd bet that more than 87% of the "outraged" people, who said they are now "unfollowing" him, never followed him in the first palce.

The whole butthurt is akin to Spartanatheart ceasing his support for the NRA.

Who follows a comedian on Twitter if they are upset by attempts at humor?

Let's see what Constable Bob has to say about this:




Raylan doesn't look to amused right now.

He's a liberal twit.

But at least he's a funny liberal twit.

I usually get a couple chuckles out of him.

The angry replies from people who saw his posts secondhand are pretty amusing.

I just chalked it up as a glimse into the crazy mind of a liberal, but you're right too.

I appreciate his trolling but don't like his progressivism showing through:

"I do NOT want Rush Limbaugh losing sponsors. I want him on the air 'til his conscience kicks in, Dorian Gray-style, & he disintegrates."

"This was crucial, hilarious & perfect: John Oliver and Bill Nye school climate change skeptics http://huff.to/1l3eMyw"

"[email protected] I was trying to attack outrage amplifiers like @salon, who I feel hurt progressives. Was not trying to kick down."

"Wow, @salon -- is there anything LESS progressive than telling people NOT to read something? Or to unfollow someone?"


There was this funny retweet by him from his brother, though.

unlike my pussy brother I NEVER delete my racist or misogynistic tweets but rather knit them onto pillows and sell them at flea markets

It's why I know what's in the news (and of interest to conservative-types like us) before arfcom does.

I don't always like his politics, but he's one of the better comedians out there right now.

His first 3 CDs are especially great.

He got his ass beat by a same sex jilted ex-lover/personal assistant.  Doubt he is a 'conservative'.

This is what happens when the gray matter stops producing viable material.

He was never funny. Not in King of Queens, not in Justified, not in Burn Notice, not in person.

He was halfway talented in Ratatouille, but only because it was scripted by a good writer and we didn't have to see his pasty mug.

It was his personal assistant. I have never seen anything indicating it was a spurned lover.

Nope-sorry no link, purely anecdotal job knowledge and gossip.  ETA-Spade MAY not be gay (really, who cares?) but his PA/the perp was/is very gay-and claimed Spade was too.  Regardless, Spade is funny and sarcastic as hell, but his humor leans a little left.

I caught his last special on Comedy Central and he sounds like a pill head now. Half his jokes were about abusing and taking prescription medication.
