People are literally dropping dead in a climate change driven 48C heat wave in India, and right wing people are wondering how many libs they will trigger with their I heart oil bumper stickers.

Rolling coal in their emotional support trucks will give them cancer, too. And more prolonged exposure relative to the amount subjected to the rest of us, "to own the libs."

Shoots dog

Marries off child to 40-year-old

Bullies trans kid to suicide

"Oh I'm sorry LIBERAL, does my extremely NORMAL behavior TRIGGER you???"

"Humor"

The others don't laugh along because they find the jokes funny, they just do it to show approval and encouragement of saying slurs or degrading women or whatever

[–] Duamerthrax 17 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago) (1 children)

"Humor" is how the body copes with getting unexpected information. A crafted joke sets up an expectation, then subverts it. Every joke is essentially that. Have you ever heard a conservative "joke" where you didn't see the punchline coming from a mile away. That's why they only have "one joke" for every topic.

They laugh because they aren't used to things that don't fit their ridged norms. "Trans person funny because they shouldn't exist lol" 🤪

"My pronouns are 'he/he'.

Because I identify as a comedian."

"Transgender people... aren't what they used to be."

- Jimmy Carr

It's like you can tell jokes without being a transphobe

[–] Viking_Hippie 30 points 1 month ago (1 children)

Yeah, there's a big difference between

A) telling jokes that make light of a somewhat touchy or controversial subject, which people like Jimmy Carr and Anthony Jeselnik are masters of and

B) telling jokes about how persecuted minorities are insane and should not be "indulged" in their "delusion" like Babylon Bee and every unfunny far right bigot do.

In case you couldn't tell, I'm a huge fan of A when done well and absolutely deplore B..

Though, maybe he should be dialing back the "let's murder all Roma people" jokes.

Michael Jackson was not a regressive.

My pronouns are her/she because I'm an unhealthy snack ~and the product of imperialism in Latin America~

[–] [email protected] 29 points 1 month ago

The other 10% is bragging about how strong their unhealthy behavior makes then.

Crimes. Literally crimes.

Left wing memes: [giant wall of text explaining an entire situation]
Right wing memes: [literal racism]

[–] [email protected] 27 points 1 month ago

The answer is: no. It doesn't "trigger" me. You're not important enough to me to "trigger" me. I just think you're a piece of shit.

[–] steeznson 17 points 1 month ago (8 children)

This is mostly accurate. I think it's classic in-group/out-group psychology where they enjoy making a straw man out of their opponents, then mocking the straw man (who is presumably "triggered" despite not existing).

Worth pointing out that no one is immune from this type of tribalism. Even if it is applied more lazily by one side.

[–] qaz 8 points 1 month ago

Isn't that also the case with this meme itself?

Last time right wing humor was funny was the first half of Team America.

[–] [email protected] 26 points 1 month ago (2 children)

I always looked at Team America as a satire of right wing thought. Basically the Bush worldview taken to comical extremes.

I know Parker and Stone are lolbertarians, but they managed to actually skewer the right pretty well back in the day.

[–] I_Has_A_Hat 5 points 1 month ago

Best evidence is in America (Fuck Yea), democrats get the normal "Fuck yea!" response while Republicans get only like 2 or 3 guys saying "Fuck yea". They know what they're about.

[–] John_McMurray 4 points 1 month ago

There's libertarians, and then there's libertarians. A good portion can't really be considered right wing, or at least not the same right wing. Being not in favor of most communist/socialist philosophy doesn't automatically make you in favor of conservatism or fascism, and neither of those are the same either.

Reminds me of this shirt I don’t care if your feelings are offended.
And I’m like… okay but why are you such an asshole person that you don’t care? If you were a decent human being, you wouldn’t just want to just hurt someone’s feelings, that’s just… being an asshole.

Isn't this true for pretty much all political humor?

I mean, Joe Lycett's right wing comedy is really good

[–] TheBat 12 points 1 month ago (1 children)

Gods, I love him. His trolling is so on point and he's always a delight to watch and listen to.
