DiCiccio Calls For People To “Get Our Sense Of Humor Back”

Phoenix City Council member Sal DiCiccio's social media post

Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio told Facebook and Twitter followers we “need to get our sense of humor back,” on Wednesday after one of his posts was found offensive. DiCiccio had asked followers “what are we offended by, today?”

DiCiccio deleted the posts after followers accused him of lacking humor and sensitivity.

DiCiccio issued a statement it was intended to be a joke, and many followers saw it as one.

DiCiccio took the post down, and issued the following statement:

“I have zero tolerance for Nazis, Neo-Nazis, white supremacists, or anyone else who puts the race of an individual before the character of that individual — period. I find them despicable. At the same time, we need to get our sense of humor back. We need to stop conflating policy disagreements with personal attacks. Stop accusing our fellow citizens of hatred simply for holding different beliefs. Stop making every problem worse and start working together again on solutions.

  1. I often wonder what will be offensive today, everybody seems to be offended on a daily basis. It has become a part of our society, like putting on your clothes, you put on your offended alert button. The guy making a joke you don’t like, the color of someones skin, the driver in front of you, etc.
    It just keeps on happening, being offended. Sheesh, give it a break, laugh and think of Phillipians 4:8
    “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”
    Walk by the things that offend, usually they are petty little things not worth our attention and time. Remember the Golden Rule, Matthew 7:12
    ““So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”

  2. Everyone and rightly so should condemn the so called “White Nationalists”, but we also need to condemn that same hatred that calls itself Black Lives Matter, and Antifa. The left has deep roots with fascism, and intimidation, The KKK was a brainchild of the Democrats, so they could keep the Black man down and afraid. Now they do it with Democrat Policies that have kept the Black man in his place for almost 60 years. Robert Byrd friend and mentor to both Hillary and Barack. William Fulbright mentor to Bill Clinton. Albert Gore Sr. father of Algore Jr. Lynden Baines Johnson who gave us the Great Society, the absolute worse piece of legislation that has kept the Black Man dependent on the New Democrat Plantation. The Democrats don’t want to talk about ideas they just want to erase their identity to the worst ideas. It’s hard to rewrite history when so many are still around who remember it. But the dems are trying hard, pulling down those monuments now.

  3. What I forgot to mention with all these democrat mentors is that they were all segregationists. The dems are desperate to clean the skeletons out of their fascists closets.
