Now HERE Is ANOTHER GREAT Idea.

I’m ALL for using THIS approach to dealing with the insane left.

Found this at Breitbart.com.  Damn, the more I read it, the BETTER I like it.

 

Weaponizing Comedy in the Culture War Against Liberalism.

 

THESE guys were FUNNY.

THESE guys are just ridiculous. Scorn and derision should be SOP on them.

In his Monday interview with me, Big Hollywood’s Christian Toto rightly quoted me as saying my stand-up act (wholly separate from my more serious works which many of you have seen) is intended to “preach to the (conservative) choir,” and that my purpose, in part, is to make my audience “feel comfortable.”

I should have elaborated.

I do, in fact, seek to preach to the choir. This is because I recognize that just because someone can sing the songs doesn’t mean he understands the gospel. And it doesn’t mean that, even if they are steeped in the gospel, that, when they step outside the congregation, they take that gospel with them and stand firm (much less evangelize) when confronted by people hostile to their beliefs.

Far too often, the conservative foolishly sees his libertarianism as synonymous with “surrender” and lets his “to each his own” ideology lead him to cede the battles to those who are most willing to promote, proselytize, propagandize and co-opt–starting with our children–the masses.

And I suspect that the Christianity that suffuses the movement (happily so to this Jew) sees too many conservatives believing that “being nice” to others–including those whose ideological purpose is the undermining of all things Christian–is somehow a Christian value. Remember, Jesus did throw over the tables from time to time.

Whether I deliver my message in a serious dissertation, like my book, The KinderGarden of Eden: How The Modern Liberal Thinks or in my more comedic take as I will do Thursday Oct. 3 at the world famous Laugh Factory in Hollywood, I want my audience–“the choir”–to “feel comfortable” knowing what they already know but think it is somehow wrong to act upon: that modern liberalism is an infantile and destructive ideology at war with all things good, right and successful.

I want “the choir” to understand that their libertarian streak and their Christian hearts (no matter their faith) are under assault and that this is, in fact, war. Thank God it’s not–thus far–a shooting war (although violence and the threat of violence has been at the heart of modern liberalism from the day it first began to take over our society, from the terrorists like William Ayers who now just wait for us to die as they brainwash our children into accepting their ways; to the movement attempting to undermine our commerce, a movement that takes its very name from the Nazi occupation of Europe–“Occupy Wall Street.”

I want “the choir” to “feel comfortable” with what they already know: that this is a war for the very survival of all that has given us our freedom, prosperity and progress. I want “the choir” to “be comfortable” with the knowledge that fighting this war–not just singing about it when alone amongst ourselves–is good and right and just.

It’s a different kind of war, one in which the weapons of persuasion can still be effective. I want “the choir” to be “comfortable” using those weapons as needed and at every turn.

The “weapon” of persuasion I bring to bear through my stand-up is one that Saul Alinsky includes in his “rules for radicals”: ridicule. I do so because modern liberalism is ridiculous. It is infantile to its core–with one famous Leftist author, Robert Fulghum speaking for them all when he declared in all seriousness, “All I ever need to know I learned in kindergarten”–and like the small child, while he cannot build anything, the Modern Liberal can and will, if left in charge, destroy.

Even though these are serious subjects we’ll be talking about Thursday, I want “the choir” to laugh–laugh with the joy of the sublime stupidity that is modern liberalism–made comfortable in their knowledge that the enemy they face is not merely wrong, he is ridiculous.

What an outstanding idea. Using comedy, scorn, and ridicule on the left.

I LOVE it. I’ve maintained that if we can get a laugh out of exposing the left for all the ridiculous shit they do, espouse, believe in, act on, whatever, it is a bonus for us.

This program gets the Clyde Seal Of Approval.

    Clyde, I’ve been trying to do that since 2007. Following is my intro to Pesky Truth’s satire page:

    “It should also be noted that in writing this satire, I am following Rule Four created by one of Barack Obama’s role models, Saul Alinsky (said to be the father of community organizing), who wrote in his book “Rules for Radicals” that “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” I will do my best to follow his rule by ridiculing our politicians at every opportunity.”

    All of my later works are also posted here on N&F, but get meager readership. I agree that comedy, scorn, and ridicule of the left can be influential, but unless folks have access to it, it’s like a fart in a hurricane.

    We are doing better now on N&F 2.0 and hopefully will continue to expand our viewership and thereby influence those whose leftist heads are still filled with mush. We are producing some pretty good stuff, both serious and satirical and we have a quality group of writers, we just need more exposure.

    Another good one, my friend.

    and
    “Even though these are serious subjects we’ll be talking about Thursday, I want “the choir” to laugh–laugh with the joy of the sublime stupidity that is modern liberalism–made comfortable in their knowledge that the enemy they face is not merely wrong, he is ridiculous.”

    These two got my attention. Yes, they are brainwashing our children as they have at least since I was in school in the ’40’s and ’50’s and it is a problem that will not go away without a concerted effort on the part of parents and PTA groups…

    And to show the stupidity would be the best way to bring young minds into the light.
    One of the things that captivates and eventually converts a virgin mind to socialism is the tidbit thrown out there that it is the intellectual way to think. To think only conservative minds are low brow and posess moronic iq’s. Illuminate the dumb asses that are today held up as brilliant, illuminate them for the dolts they are and you will start to show younger minds the way.

      Buck, I agree with your observation. In this culture war, we will not win it by playing nice. We must be willing to “punch below the belt” because that is exactly what the left has been doing for a long, long time.

    • Clyde says:

      Buck, take a bow. That is the Comment Of The Thread. Spot-on, man. Thank you.

  3. Laughter can often get the most serious points across in a very subtle way. “Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down”. More than just a Mary Poppins ploy~!
    Good one, Clyde ~!

    We don’t have to do much, they look pretty ridiculous on their own, but I try to do my part on a daily basis. 🙂

    • Clyde says:

      And THAT is EXACTLY the way to do it, Kathy. I believe you, Garnet, Gunny, along with a host of others, need to spread that like clotted cream on a scone.

  5. Buck says:

    Clotted cream? Scone?

  6. Terry says:

    Exposing the absurdity of the left is what I live for.
    And I would do it even if I wasn’t being paid big $ by ‘Nox !
