The left can’t meme

Having grown up in the 1980s and 1990s I remember a time when popular culture mocked the right wing stiff.

Think of the school principal in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off or the snobs in Caddyshack. Since the 1960s humour has been on the side of the left and liberal values.

In more recent years that has changed. The left aren’t funny anymore.

They have become the stiffs and worst of all the left can’t meme.

    The last many years of George Carlin’s career descended into angry rants at the audience. Bill Hicks was never anything but. From ‘Mike’ in All in the Family to ‘Maxine’ in The Carmichael Show liberals are rarely funny. They are angry arrogant pig headed scolds.
