It’s been stated that reactionaries have no sense of humor. I’m not sure if their tinfoil fedoras filter out the funny or anything above the level of Larry, Moe and Curly is way over their head. This is especially true with satire. They just don’t get it!
Case in point: Last weekend’s Saturday Night Live! (3/11/17)
In the Cold Open, Alec Baldwin reprised his role as our “so-called” president. During the skit, there was a line about Alex Jones telling Trump that he believed shapeshifting aliens have been living on Earth for years. That was a (sort of) joke folks. And, almost everybody, except Alex, got it.
After all, Alex’s InfoWars is “Conspiracy Central.” (Eat your heart out, Glenn Beck!) And, there was Alex’s InfoWars program on March 16th of last year, in which he warned us about “An Alien Force Not Of This World Attacking Humanity!”
Be that as it may, the SNL Open hurted Alex’s widdle feelin’s and he was as mad as a frog jumping on a hot stove. So mad, in fact, that after calling Baldwin the non-PC version of “anal pit,” he challenged him to a battle of fisticuffs (of the bare knuckle variety).
Pretending that Baldwin was actually listening to his drivel, he shouted,
I hate you! My listeners hate you, and remember that scumbag forever! We are going to defeat this anti-human scum! We’re going to wreck their world!
Oh, and he’s also not a fan of Jake Weber, who portrays a Jones-like character in “Homeland.” Alex claims the character makes him out as a sexual predator.
He goes on to ask for Big Daddy’s help in destroying these actors.
I am going to put my energy and all of my aggressive warlike energy into politically annihilating you.
God knows I mean what I’m doing, so God, please, please, please, please open everybody’s eyes and raise up other leaders to defeat these people. I just want to see this scum defeated. They hate us so much. They are sickening filth. God they are the most dishonorable monsters the world has ever seen.
I guess he hasn’t looked in the mirror lately.
