Getting Funny Right

402 words

For a long time, Left-leaning satirists and comedians  have owned funny. Credit it to nepotism or closed doors, but the best humor you could hope for Right-of-center was the occasional libertarian toker or cartoonish redneck self-parody. Blogger Jonathan Chait congratulated the Left for their mastery of satire in a post for The New Republic only a few months ago.

The Left cheered for new media and the end of gatekeepers, but it was their own women (and men) were stationed at the gates.

The old Right always seemed to be made up of cranky, carb-faced old men. The new Right is fast, young and far handier with Photoshop.

After an Ohio University student group called Students Teaching Against Racism in Society was cheered on by the media for creating fussy, humorless thought policing posters for its pet minority groups, Youth for Western Civilization fired back with some “gotcha” tit for tat that were right on the money.

The cultures that the anti-racists chose to solemnly protect (suicide bomber culture?) were so selective that it was downright racist. The Right was right.

Either it’s OK to make fun of someone else’s culture or it’s not.

Passionate advocate for hillbilly rights Jim Goad spoke truth to power with his own poster.

My pal Kevin I. Slaughter fired up his cosmic joy buzzer and came up with this zinger for the Church of Satan.

Now it seems like everyone is having a laugh at the expense of the uptight  Left.

A Facebook page for the comedy just started up, and there are already Klingons, self-righteous dinosaurs, and offended Klansmen.

And the Internet wouldn’t be the Internet without some unamused cat posters and cute dog posters.

There have also been a ton of great parodies of the “we are the 99%” meme, associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement. My favorite is the cookie monster.

Right now, the Right spends a lot of time doing self-analysis. I guess that’s what you do when you’re on the outside, trying to find your footing. What the Right needs now is more funny. The Left is becoming increasingly hysterical and absurd. Its narratives are as tired and irrelevant as those of any tone deaf, tuned-out old coot who holds out hope for a return to Mayberry.

The Left deserves to get trolled, and trolled hard.

Not to fix it, but to help it fall apart.

    There’s nothing like a good sense of humour, and I have nothing like a good sense of humour. Nevertheless, even I must admit that the graphics in the Facebook page that Donovan links are completely hilarious.

    The Klansman image is the best, of course, but I also laughed out loud at the Tyrannosaurus poster.

    Alinsky and Lenin taught the same: humor is a deadly weapon. Once rendered ridiculous, all of a man’s ideas are rendered irrelevant with one stroke. Are they true? Who cares! This is the lower human psychology, and our theatre of war. We must not grant them uncontested victory is this arena. And they have grown sloppy thru lack of conflict. We have no where to go but up. The cycle begins to favor us now via the Law of Compensation and the inevibility of decay – their’s.

    I find the originals already funny enough, especially the one with the suicide bomber costume is priceless.

    By chance, I commented on the use of humor a few days ago, and I won’t repeat what I said here, other than that we should exercise esprit in every sense of this French word: spirit, mind, and wit. We should use a style which is bold, lucid, and irreverent. We should use a style in which it is as if we see through our enemies, laugh at them, and advance for the kill.
