During the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee’s hearing on Violent Extremism, U2’s Bono suggested that America deploy its funniest comedians to fight terrorism. Bono volunteered Amy Schumer, Chris Rock and Sacha Baron Cohen for the task. “Don’t laugh,” he told the committee. “I think comedy should be deployed. It’s like, you speak violence, you speak their language. But if you laugh at them when they’re goose-stepping down the street, then it takes away their power.” “So I am suggesting that the Senate send in Amy Schumer and Chris Rock and Sacha Baron Cohen, thank you.” “Actually, that’s not the first time I’ve heard experts on how do we counter violent extremism talk about that,” responded Senator Jeanne Shaheen. “It’s one of the things that we’re looking at.” Schumer, apparently unaware of Bono’s idea, linked to the story on Twitter, adding the caption “Holy s**t.” Copyright(c) 2016 RTTNews.com.
