‘‘It’s harder to laugh when you’re scared, and much of the left is terrified.  They know that an inappropriate chuckle, the wrong tweet, or last year’s term for an aggrieved minority can lessen their standing with progressive peers, if not get them fired from a job.  Lefties also have turned the negative of humorlessness into the positive of moral superiority.  Sniffing ‘That’s not funny!’ at an inoffensive Caitlyn Jenner joke signals that you are more evolved than the average cis-het-white-oppressor.  The same people who laughed at Dana Carvey’s ‘Church Lady’ now aspire to be her.’’ - Jon Gabriel
