Change the GOP logo from elephant to crying Nazi?

I'm not even sure this is satire.

The genius of today's Onion is they take something many people have been saying and they just come right out and also say it.

To be fair, so does the GOP. Just with "all the best people."

I adore the onion mind you, but this isn't clicking for me. Too true and therefore too obvious maybe.

It is indeed getting far too difficult to satirize the modern GQP.

I refuse to believe anyone actually likes Babylon Bee. Conservatives are just so desperate for conservative "comedy" that they'll latch on to anything and Babylon Bee has the advantage of not needing a lot of overhead or popularity to stay alive.

Holy shiat that's a dumb site. I've never seen even a sentence that wasn't whiny and self-indulgent, and most likely a complaint that liberals are cancelling them.

The Bee benefits greatly from the fact that vastly most conservatives cannot identify comedy in the wild. Anything with the rhythm or structure of comedy will do. Bonus points if it's punching down.

The Babylon Bee is just your standard Republican propaganda rag, but with a laugh track.

For the old timers here, they may remember my character who was a right winger with a penchant for malapropisms, misused homonyms, and general inanity.  He was modeled on another Fark user, and said user never really caught on that it was satire.

I gave up that character approximately 10 years ago because it became too difficult to satirize the GOP.  For every stupid scenario I created, real life intervened with something even dumber.  It became depressing.

Thank you for reading my analysis of conservative comedy.

Man this Kyle Rittenhouse storyarc sucks.  Let's do the one where he's found dead of a heroin OD in the cheapest room he could get at the roadside Super 8 in Sisterfister, Oklahoma.

The Onion is the world's leading news publication, offering highly acclaimed, universally revered coverage of breaking national, international, and local news events. Rising from its humble beginnings as a print  newspaper in 1756, The Onion now enjoys a daily readership of 4.3 trillion and has grown into the single most powerful and influential organization in human history.

Can the Babylon Bee say that? Didn't think so.

Unfortunately with The Onion whenever they mock Republicans, it becomes "so let it be written, so let it be done".

This will become reality in five years.

I just don't think that they are making the point they think they are....

Incoming flood of conserva-derps loudly proclaiming that The Onion is no good anymore and they won't read it anymore. Unspoken being the fact that they've always hated The Onion because right wingers don't actually understand the human sense of humor.

It's not so much that they think of themselves as "punching down," but rather they've convinced themselves that gay people and minorities have unlimited cultural power over society, somehow.

You can just picture each writer sitting back after submitting their shiatty excuse for satire thinking "Ha, NAILED 'em this time!"

I've been assured that fisticuffs, donnybrooks, and dustups qualify as "legitimate political discourse".  If the person on the receiving end happens to be alt-right or alt-right adjacent? (shrug) They should've discoursed themselves better.
