This is a humor blog. It is not an insult blog, although I do enjoy a good insult done well, especially by master insulters like Jon Stewart and John Oliver who do it to make a valid point.
I do not appreciate when others equate my sense of humor with the poop-flingers who promote hate and violence. If I thought a joke I made would inspire someone to assassinate the Bozo President, I would stop making jokes entirely. Seriously… President Pence would have me boxed and euthanized within days. (See what I mean? HUMOR! Not a call to violence.)
I am NOT like Mark Levin .
Who is Mark Levin, you say? Good for you. You must have relatively good luck avoiding human Pepe the Frog memes.
Yes, Mark Levin is a radio insult-flinger who hates President Obama and basically all things reasonable. He argues in favor of the Confederate Flag and the more racist policies and anti-LGBT policies of the Republican Party. And a Facebook commentator recently sited him to me as proof that Obama really did wiretap Trump Tower during the election. Which, of course, makes perfect sense, since the Twitter twit-wit tweeter we elected president most likely got his early morning accusation fuel directly from Levin’s radio poop sack. Or possibly second hand via Fox News who took it from Levin’s poop sack and re-packaged it in a form easily digested by all the poop-loving goobers and gomers (not “gomer’s” by the way) that feast from it.
So why is it critical that I disassociate myself from a radio bad-word-shouter like Levin?
Because I am a word-warrior in the cause of goodness and light, not darkness and evil.
You may have seen recently that a new statue has been installed in front of the Wall Street Bull. It is a girl standing in a confident and defiant pose. It is a very timely and very creative statement about where we need to be mentally now. And I am not ashamed of the fact that it was placed there by liberal pro-women activists. I hope to be so fearless and determined too. But it has inspired backlash. A recent viral meme shows a man in a business suit pantomiming a rape of the statue. I refuse to show you a picture of that here. I won’t honor it with any publicity beyond the horrifying fact of it. But it is the effect the current president has had on the brains of this country. He has convinced his half of the country that it is okay to have bad, violent, or racist thoughts. He has made them think that all of their worst desires towards people who are not themselves are now somehow validated and okay. I won’t stand for it.
This is what it is really for. Giving little girls the notion that they have the right to stand up against the forces of stupidity is priceless. No amount of loud, angry insults and poop-flinging can defeat that.
