Why does "conservative humor" fail so badly?

121 posts in this topic

you really take this all very personally don't you?

I don't take any of the stuff on here personally. But I do take raising taxes seriously because it is my taxes that all of the liberals want raised.

The liberal philosophy is so ridiculous that it is just too easy.

Don't want to work....that's ok, we will support you.

Don't want to get a good education and end up in a low paying job...don't worry, we will support you.

Want to continue to have children's out of wedlock with no possible means to support them....don't worry, we will support you.

Basically their whole party is based on the premise that you can do as little as you want...because someone else will support you.

There us little to no incentive to be accountable for your own decisions and actions under their philosophy...just hate those who have more than you and expect them to continue funding the entitlements.

I would imagine that if most of you were in the group that has to pay for all of this with having your taxes raised, there would be more bitching about it here.

It is easy to be ones either with your hand out or sitting on the sideline pointing fingers at others who should pay more.

Everyone should pay some level of taxes. A system where nearly half don't pay federal income tax is flawed at its core.

Larry the Cable Guy is just lazy comedy. He's the corny guy at your parent's church with slightly better timing.

Also, its difficult to make it nationally if your politics lean to the right. Could be that only the ones that are polically correct make it on the national scene. Some of the funnies comedians I have heard are playing the little clubs on the ckt, and most of them wisely keep their politics, right or left, to themselves.

Fwiw, most comedians, musicians, actors etc.. can barely speak coherently on politics, so if the left gets all of them, its not a great loss.

what makes that joke conservative?

The joke isn't conservative. The reaction to it by conservatives and liberals is what's different.

Conservatives: I've spent all day on the job dealing with jackoffs, I like to laugh without thinking "who does this offend" when I get home.

Liberals: I only like humor if people in power are getting knocked down a peg or two.

Back when the PC crowd didn't control the airwaves, conservatives had options. Now it's different. You don't have "conservative comedians" because if they slip up once it gets analyzed and Zapruder filmed to death by the PC crowd.

Which is why we like to point out to you libs when one of your own does it, and you don't attack them. It's a double standard.

Don Rickles was one of the funniest MFers on TV when I was a kid. He was Jewish, and he made fun of everybody...old people, white people, black people, hispanic people, even his own people. You watch the old roasts on TV, and everybody is doubled over laughing at his jokes. We don't have that any more, at least not on regular TV. We have watered down PC crap.

He was funny as hell in the Blue Collar days. Since then he HAS been lazy, simply cashing in on that fame with bad movies and rewritten jokes off his old stuff.

And look at All in the Family. If you'd let down your PC guard long enough, you'd realize that the show at its heart was extremely liberal. Every show came down to Archie and his old fogey views proven wrong in the end. Every single time.

Uh, yes, it's well known that Archie was a parody. Carrol O'Conner is very liberal.

It appears that your entire concept of conservative humor is that it's attacks on minorities and modern society won't let you get away with it. That's actually really gross and sad.

Exhibit A, ladies and gentlemen.

And if you think comedy is PC you should perhaps actually look into modern comedy. Comedy these days would make Don Rickles cry.

But I realize you're a conservative and your entire view of society, past and present, exists in your own mind and is independent from reality.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
