    This Thread is dedicated to the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics

    The U.S. political scene - today - is a degradation into REPUBLICAN-LED fascism. I see no humor in it - - - - - - at all. Sorry.

    No attack on you, Hotwater. I'm not into division and hate.

    Ridicule is a powerful political weapon. If you insult and smear your opponent -he will just turn the insults against you. If you accuse him of wrongdoing, he will deny and call it a lie. If you make laughing stock of him, well there is little he can do about that and like a garrote the more he writhes and cavorts trying to escape it, the more its grip tightens. Never underestimate ridicule.

    A prominent Italian politician became the protagonist of a less known comic strip. It was vile, insulting beyond imaginable but also totally spot-on. It was ferocious and hilarious. Did the politician sue ? HELL NO. That would have meant making the strip popular so the politician decided to ignore all that stuff altogether. And that was a smart move.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^ This is spot-on. It's VERY TYPICAL conservative REPUBLICAN HYPOCRISY. Pro-life ................ but with caveats???? Mitigating factors??????

    But this is them. Self-righteous HYPOCRITES. This clip is a gem.
