No Sense of Humor

I have come to the conclusion that the left wing of American politics is irredeemably fascistic. The evidence continues to mount and the only ones unable to see it are those with their own fascist streak.

Just recently, we had panelists on MSNBC claim that people with conservative views should not be allowed to run for office. MSNBC, of course, being a putative TV network watched primarily by the friends and families of Ed Schulze, Chris Matthews, and Rachel Maddow.

Before that, there was the IRS targeting scandal, which dwarfs anything Nixon did, and which was greeted by yawns of disinterest from the recreants in charge. Followed by the failure to prosecute Lois Lerner for any number of things.

Then, there is the Boko Haram mess. You know, the terrorists that Hillary Clinton wouldn’t call terrorists. Obama, it is reported, pressured the Nigerian government not to fight them. There is nothing more fascist then islam, except perhaps for the supporters of islam, whether overt or covert.

Bernie Sanders, and others in the Senate, want to gut the first amendment by giving the executive the power to punish speech of which he disapproves.

Harry Reid practically foams at the mouth at the mention of the Koch brothers, claiming they’re a main cause of global warming, but says nothing of taxpayer money being funneled into his campaign coffers by public unions like SEIU and the NEA. Nor does he mention his ever-expanding wealth, mostly gotten by insider dealing that would land you in jail.

The litany could go on and on about the attempts by the left to stifle dissent and marginalize opponents of a burgeoning police state.

But what really tipped it for me was a discussion on a computer forum. It was a discussion, almost completely irrelevant to any serious thought, about someone’s ire at the Tea Party. One commenter opined as to how members of the tea party were “aggressively stupid.” He proceeded to post that comment two or three times in a row, seemingly by accident. Whereupon I commented on the irony of someone who couldn’t manipulate an enter key calling others stupid.

That opened the floodgates. I was insulted, called vile names, threatened, etc. I was abused more for that post than for any substantive post I had ever made. And that’s when it hit me. The American left, like every other fascist movement in history, has no sense of humor.

Oh, they can mock, like Jon Stewart and Bill Mahr. But the mocking isn’t humor; it’s angry and bitter, meant to denigrate and belittle. And, the left’s “humor” is never targeted at their own, it is always outwardly directed. And should someone step off the reservation, like Mort Sahl, his career begin drying up.

That’s how you know a fascist. Nothing is funny, everything is grim. Islam proclaims it; the Ayatollah has said that there is no humor in islam. I have never seen a picture of a laughing Hitler or Mussolini. Nor, for that matter, of John Kerry. The left becomes angry when they are made fun of.

As Orwell said, “If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.”

Nobody laughs at that.
