Is Humor the Best Weapon?

During the 1960s and 1970s, when modern radical liberalism was young and on the march, humor along with music were two of its chief weapons in communicating its message throughout the popular culture and recruiting youth to their side. They were also used to bludgeon those old fuddy-duddies holding progress back.

It can be said that liberals have lost their sense of humor since then. Their humor now is generally about as subtle and funny as a sledge hammer.

Conservatives on the other hand have gotten much funnier.

Steve Hayward over at Power Line assembled these two great send-ups of the Hollywood “Save the Day” political commercial that appeared a week or so ago.

The first one is good and professional but the second one is genius. You know that’s what those Hollywood airheads are really thinking.

As Kenny Banya would say, “It’s comedy gold!” Watch and enjoy.

Bee’s Broad Sense of Humor

Poor CNN, it stepped a few feet away from the herd and it was yanked back via its leash. Naughty, naughty, mustn’t stray away from the liberal pack…

Doubly amusing, leading the squelching charge was an alleged comedienne, Samantha Bee.

Triply amusing, CNN’s groveling apology abrogating all attempts at humor to Humor Commissar Bee (bee-cause she obviously has such a broad, open-minded sense of humor).

I’m not exactly sure how someone can claim to be a purveyor of humor while also being a censor.

I’m not the first to note that we live in a time when humor has been caged, with certain people, subjects, events, etc., rendered untouchable (unhumorable?), while select others (i.e. Christians, white males [esp. dead ones], WASPs) are considered the only acceptable topics/targets for humor.

Clearly, Hillary jokes are off-limits at CNN and the Bee Hive. She who must not be mocked!

But, remember, Bee is a comedienne (and THE ONLY FEMALE HOST OF A LATE-NIGHT TALK SHOW, the article helpfully reminds us because that’s important in our world of hyper-identity) so if she says it — it is funny and if she doesn’t, don’t go there.

“The Road to Damascus” Sample Available

I’ve posted a chapter sample from “The Road to Damascus.” It can be found at the Samples page at my publishing outlet. Check it out, laugh/cry, then buy!

It’s available at several outlets (see the Books page for links). I recommend Smashwords since I get like 50 cents more per sale but Barnes & Noble is good as are any of the others. Amazon has gotten a little circumspect on small eBooks so it’s not available there (yet). But then who what wants to make the liberal Jeff Bezos wealthier? I know I don’t!

Liberals have been mocking us for decades, I’m pushing back. Help me out!

The Road to Damascus

Look to the right and you’ll see I have FINALLY gotten all the ducks in a row and published the next installment in my series of Val Plum political satires, “The Road to Damascus.”

I encourage you to click on the image, which will take you to my “publishing company,” Kirby Sterling Publishing. From there you can click on the “Books” link. The “The Road to Damascus” segment will have a link to the book’s Smashwords page. There you can actually read the first part of it. The eBook can be bought at Smashwords, which I encourage since I get a bigger cut of the profits from them!

Smashwords also handles distribution so I’ll be updating distributors at Kirby Sterling Publishing as they come along.

I’ll get a sample up as soon as I can at Liberty Island, as well.

Here’s your chance to help out and promote conservative culture and fight against the liberal domination of our culture – including the Alien-like facelock it has on the publishing industry (you wanna know rejection, try selling conservative humor to a big New York publishing house).

Makes a great pre-Christmas gift! Birthday gift! Far more meaningful than Easter eggs (except to the wee ones, don’t stiff them them) and almost as tasty as a chocolate bunny!  St. Swithun’s Day is practically upon us! Cheaper than practically anything at Starbucks and far less politically correct.
