Ridicule as a weapon of (political) war.
No one likes being laughed at.
In an attempt to mock the Green New Deal (and the rest of climate change mumbo-jumbo) promoted by New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, LaRouchePAC planted one of its activists at AOC’s Town Hall meeting.
Even if we were to bomb Russia, we still have too many people. Too much pollution. So we have to get rid of the babies. That’s a big problem. Just stopping having babies is not enough. We need to eat the babies.
Using ridicule as a way of fighting political opposition isn’t new. People have used ridicule and satire as a powerful weapon to cut their enemies down to size since — oh well — since there ware enemies in need to be cut down to size.
Let’s borrow a couple of thoughts from leading progressive thinkers…,
The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
This is the war — this is our World War II.
(Before she realized that no one with the social intelligence above that of a sea sponge was going to take her seriously.)
People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction.Greta Thunberg (Activist)
(Before she realized that she should be back in school on the other side of the ocean instead reading to a bunch of people in UN.)
Can you Imagine Eating Human Flesh?Prof. Magnus Soderlund
I feel somewhat hesitant but to not appear overly conservative…I’d have to say….I’d be open to at least tasting it
(Before he realized that that suggestion of having just recently deceased member of immediate family for lunch, is not going to sit well with the most of the civilized population.)
…and using exaggeration, elevate them to the next, satirical, level of insanity.
(NOTE: I don’t think there’s any need for exaggeration in case of this Soderlund guy. Hi’s already way up there.)
Twelve years? That’s way too long. Let’s cut it down to just a few months.
We are not even going to survive until Christmas. It won’t matter anyway, because by that time, the North Pole will melt, and beloved Santa and the rest of his crew will die miserable deaths as a result of drowning in crystal clear, icy water — assuring that way proper nutrition for other North Pole residents, who are better swimmers.
(Sorry, no Christmas presents for you.)
What about all those people dropping like flies because of our fragile ecosystems are collapsing?
Well, let’s be practical and listen to the advice of Prof. Soderlund. We should take those who are no longer contributing to our society (individuals killed by collapsing ecosystems), and use their remains to replace traditional meat products.
By doing so, we’ll be able to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions by forcing all those evil methane-producing, farting cows into extinction without creating any food shortages in the process.
(Passing gas will become a criminal offense.)
But wait! Why not push it a little further. (this is where LaRouchePAC satirical drama comes in.) There’s no need to wait for someone to die to be eligible to become part of our menu.
Let’s go after our babies. Nothing, ladies and gentlemen, is going to prevent us from saving the planet!
Save the planet — eat the children!
(Over time, propagation will grow to be an occupation paid by the food industry.)
This approach will take care of two problems: over-population and assurance of proper, high-quality nutrition.
Fewer kids — No replacement for old geezers. Fewer humans to feed. More food for the rest of us.
Higher food quality — Veal is better than beef.
Is satirical sketch presented by the LaRouchePAC member at the AOC’s Town Hall meeting , that much off from reality? Progressives are pushing the idea of abortion after birth already.
Was that insane? Of course, it was! But…
Some times just explaining why your way of life is superior to the way the opposition wants everybody to live by, is not enough. On occasion, there’s an unavoidable need for ridiculing the ideas or solutions to problems proposed by those on the opposite end of the ideological spectrum to make people listen to your arguments.
Shocking the people who are too busy, too tired, or just simply too ignorant to care about what is happening around them and forcing them back into paying attention, ensures that all of us, and not only those in power, are influencing the way our country is governed.
The headline like:
THEY WANT TO EAT BABIES!!!,
works much better than:
The controversy around the new abortion bill explained.
So, ladies and gents — bon appétit!
