Sometimes I wonder if my progress in life is actually working to make me a better human, or if I'm veering off in the wrong direction.

I have realized recently that the older I get the more conservative humor disgusts me, which gives me hope that I am, in fact, improving as a human being.

Conservative humor is an oxymoron.
 
2022-10-07 10:57:07 AM  
Yes, humor that punches down is so amazing.

Word!

I've been posting very funny stuff on Fark for years and rarely get more than one or two funnies. Not because my humor isn't funny but because absolutely everyone else doesn't understand it.

I thought White people wearing "Black Lives Matter" t-shirts was funny, too. My GF (Black) and I (White) ignore all this crap and sometimes joke about it.

People with mental illness shouldn't be congregating, they should be seeking professional help for treatment...

No. I understand terrible things can be funny. I survived TNF last night.  They just aren't funny.

Good political humor often pokes fun at hypocrisy, the establishment, and people in politics doing stupid things.  It is why it works so well going one direction but not the other.

there's a line in Bob Odenkirk's action movie...

Punching up is funny, but punching down is not.
 
2022-10-07 11:17:41 AM  
"Conservative humor" lacks 2 very important qualifications. It isn't funny, and it ISN'T TRUE. This is why George Carlin was so funny, and why Dennis Miller is such a dick.

I do like his ex wife's big ass. That's about the only thing he did right. That and his first two albums.

What's TNF?
 
2022-10-07 11:20:45 AM  
Never mind the phrase. Having them both in the same room at the same time is like the black hole of stupid. It could have torn the fabric of space and time-or something.

If he wanted to get a laugh out of me for that, it would require Mike Myers staring at the camera like a deer in the headlights again, except even more confused than 20 years ago.

Idiot conservatives never understood (or perhaps deliberately presented not to understand) that the Black Lives Matter movement was an attempt to address police brutality in America and how it is rendered disproportionately toward minorities.

Yes, White Lives Matter; in that police brutality is waged against all Americans, in direct violation of their motto, "to serve and protect."

But Kanye West is too much of a coward to address police brutality. He is a stooge, and not the funny kind.

Tucker Carlson and Kayne West in the same room?

It's a wonder the space didn't implode into a singularity of puckered asshole.
 
2022-10-07 11:25:55 AM  
Dennis Miller is probably the only funny conservative comic who was funny. And I stress the was... back like 25 years ago. I've watched a shiat ton of of material from the people who are Fox news crowd popular they are not funny. Then the conservative hosts who are supposed to be funny are absolutely shiat.

"Conservative humor"

The term itself is the only thing funny about it.

Conservative humor is no laughing matter
 
2022-10-07 11:30:51 AM  
Conservatives don't generally think before speaking and lack empathy even if they consider their words before hand.

If the reaction they get from saying something obnoxious is positive enough from their tribe then they take a "fark you feelings" approach.

If they don't get the attaboys from their tribe, but instead face criticism for what they said then they claim that it was meant to be a joke.

This has the added benefit of reinforcing their view of themselves as victims because the not joke you didn't take as a joke means you're picking on them.

Heads they win.  Tails they win.
 
2022-10-07 11:31:14 AM  
What do you mean? I totally get this, and think it's motherf**king hilarious.
Not in the way Tucker and Kanye think it is - but hilarious, nevertheless.

So many folks never understand that simple concept - to them, that's why those folks are there. Mocking them is the right of the oppressor, and taking it is the burden of the oppressed.

If they didn't want it that way, they should've been born rich or powerful.

The thing is, he was funny in part because he mocked people in power - now, he kisses their asses and begs for seconds.

"Conservative humor"?

No such animal.

Exactly this.

"Conservative Humor" is cruelty dressed up in clown shoes, grease paint, and a rubber nose.

I doubt he understands the concept of thorn - it'd be hilarious if we just called him "The" from now on...

He is angling for the position of "Kapo" when the Republicans assert authoritarian control.

Weatherkiss: Punching up is funny, but punching down is not.


Yeah the problem is that people tend to disagree about where they are in the pecking order. Lots of white working class folks don't think that someone hitting them is punching up.

I wonder, how much of this would have been avoided if the original slogan were "black lives matter too"

I'm guessing not much, because for a lot of people opposed to BLM its not about misunderstanding the slogan. But maybe some.
