Why does "conservative humor" fail so badly?

121 posts in this topic

I think it's time to stop taking the internet so serious and constantly making weird call-outs/bets/challenges every time someone makes you upset.

Joking about doing stand up is a far cry from being upset. Totally goofing on which side is funnier with asolutley no ill will involved at all.

Your response is disappointing.

As many times I have posted here this is maybe the 2nd time I got truly ticked off.

You missed it but I'm gonna be the bigger guy here and simply walk away.

Also for someone that "knows someone" with AS you were pretty quick to join in and start bashing them when you were trying to insult me.

Get the fug outta here with your fake outrage kthx.

pretty simple really. comedy pushes boundaries. its antithesis is conservatism.

Not sure you have the right antithesis.

What's the difference between OJ and Christopher Reeve?

O.J.'s gonna walk.

This joke pushed boundaries and went over big with conservatives 18 years ago. Liberals were disgusted. Ten years later I saw someone post a picture of the Twin Towers with the caption "I'd hit it, twice!" Roles reversed on that one.

Humor is tragedy times time. How many times have you heard a Jewish joke referencing the Holocaust? Imagine hearing it in 1945.

This is a huge broad brush, but conservatives prefer jokes that poke fun at the poor and unempowered. Liberals prefer jokes that make fun of the rich and powerful. It's not more complicated than that, really.

there being, of course, a difference between political conservatism (as it relates to the prism of issues and constituencies and voter blocs) and social conservatism (as it relates to establishment belief systems independent of specific ideological identity.)

You: Hey, you wanna play the rape game?

Her: No!

You: That's the spirit!
