[VIDEO] This Skit Pokes Fun At Wokeness In A Big Way
One of the most effective means of taking down a political opponent or an ideological agenda is to make fun of it to the point where nobody takes it seriously. AOC’s Green New Deal met its end when the junior congresswoman released the fourteen-page draft to scores of laughter to the point where even she refused to vote in favor of it when it came to the floor for a vote.
In the interest of poking fun at the ideology of the political Left, check out this skit from comedian Troy Kinne.
While there is some truth to the insanity of this ideology, it is more important to remember that it is difficult to debate an agenda that has ever-changing rules that even its own participants can’t keep straight. Just look at where we have come in regards to the debate over the rights of transgendered individuals. We have gone from ‘trans people just want to use the bathroom of their choice’ to ‘biological men should be able to compete in women’s sports’ to ‘nobody is qualified to define the word woman unless they are a biologist or unless they identify as a woman themselves.
When it comes to social justice warriors and their brands of going woke, the easiest way to deal with them is to simply point out how ridiculous they are and have a laugh. Stop taking them so seriously and you will see that they will quickly lose their power.
This idea of mocking the enemy gained fame in recent history during the rise of community organizer Barack Obama and former First Lady Hillary Clinton, both of whom saw the pro-Communist author, Saul Alinsky, as an inspiration.
Alinsky wrote the book “Rules for Radicals” and featured mockery as a tactic to take down the other side:
“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.”
It should be noted that, although Snopes claims that Alinsky never dedicated his book to Lucifer/Satan, they will admit that there is an epigraph in the book that reads:
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.
— SAUL ALINSKY
Who are we to say that this is an endorsement of Satan when the established fact-checkers of the world tell us not to believe our lying eyes?
The point of all of this is just to say that humor and laughter are often-times career-ending forces when it comes to politics.
One of the most incredible examples of this was in 2004 when Howard Dean was running in third place during the Iowa Caucuses. He was in the midst of naming multiple states he was planning on winning and gave what sounded like a cross between a cheer and a “yee-haw.” It was loud and unexpected and the legacy media, as well as the Internet, was merciless in laughing at the man. They called it the Dean scream. It was not long after that he dropped out of the race.
It takes a rare breed of politicians to be able to withstand the power of the masses laughing at them.
