What do Fascists, Communists and Democrats Have in Common?

They have absolutely no sense of humor.

February 24, 2020


Seriously - study all repressive regimes and you will find that one of their common characteristics besides violent, intolerant, and fanatical commitment to rigid dogma is that they are totally unable to distinguish satire - especially when it is directed at them.

Perhaps that’s because what passes for humor among the left never rises above childish schoolyard bullying and taunts. The left thinks that throwing rocks through windows while shouting, “Blank you! I hope you die,” is the height of thoughtful expression.

Thus it should surprise no one that the pundits of leftist propaganda are going all out to take down a small Christian website that gently mocks leftist absurdity by being - well… absurd.

Anyone who has had the patience, coupled with a fair amount of masochism, to read or watch the Left stream media knows that while they make the most vitriolic and hate-filled rants against all things conservative, the slightest whisper of criticism sends them into full-blown hysterics.

That is exactly what CNN is doing over a spoof ran in the satire website, 'The Babylon Bee', which read; " ‘CNN Purchases Industrial-Sized Washing Machine To Spin News Before Publication." (1)

And before you ask, yes, CNN, the masters of ’spin’, took it seriously and went berserk.

Their surrogate, Snopes, which hides under the guise of ‘fact-checking,’ solemnly intoned:

"...some readers may have ‘interpreted it literally.’" With the stone-cold solemnity of the internet humor void, Snopes rated (2) the claim that CNN ‘invested in mechanical assistance to help their journalists and news anchors spin the news before publication’ as ‘false’. Eventually, after further outings (3) in its self-crashing clown car, Snopes changed its ‘false’ ratings to ‘labeled satire,’ the salt content of that ‘labeled’ appearing dangerously high. Fact-checking a satire site might sound like something from the Babylon Bee itself but it’s a serious business: acting on Snopes’ ‘false’ rating, Facebook warned (4) the Bee that a repeat offense would see ‘their distribution reduced and their ability to monetize and advertise removed.' (5)

The normal reaction of normal people possessed of a modicum of intelligence and blessed with a healthy sense of humor as well as the ability to occasionally laugh at themselves, would be to simply shrug one's shoulders and move on.

But remember, we’re not dealing with normal people here - we’re dealing with leftists. This is not anything that America has ever seen before. These are ideologies of the same ilk that destroyed freedom and subjected millions to a lifetime of misery and poverty throughout the world during the 20th century.

So remember - the absurdity of the Democrat rants and their shrill, self-righteous, blind, and humorless ideology may be worth little more than a sigh and shake of our collective heads, but if you could ask any American who ever fled to this country from a totalitarian regime they would tell you… “That is how it starts.”

And that is nothing to laugh about.

People on the left have no sense of humor? LOL. Really? Hmm. Let’s ponder this ridiculous statement. Saturday Night alive features liberals. Most stand up comedians are liberals. It takes higher intelligence to produce and understand humor and we can all agree conservatives just aren’t as smart. After all, you aren’t well repressed at university. You believe there are actually people in the sky who control your destiny. The absurdity and vitriol in this article is a good example of why this country is so divided. It’s not our fault we’re superior to you and we’ve had just about enough of your jealousy. Blue tidal wave coming and you will have earned it given your servile treasonous behavior. Shame on all Republicans. You’re no patriots. You have no love of country or Constitution. You need to be deported because at this point you’re little more than dead weight.
