Satire is used to expose vice, folly, or stupidity through the use of irony, sarcasm, and ridicule for the purpose of instructing and improving society. In essence, satire makes people laugh before it makes them think.
That said, there is nothing funny or thought provoking about Jack Stuef’s piece titled “Greatest Living American: A Children’s Treasury of Trig Crap On His Birthday” posted at the purportedly satirical, leftist blog Wonkette.
Stuef’s hateful, cruel, vulgar pathetic attempt at satire ridicules Sara Palin’s 3-year-old special-needs son Trig on his third birthday. Stuef’s morally reprehensible, off-color humor suggests that Trig was the victim of incest, and the accompanying Youtube clips mocks the boy’s disability.
Stuef’s unfiltered thoughts reveal the awful blackness that lurks in the minds and hearts of most leftists, as was evident by the indecent, vitriolic assault displayed by the teacher and SEIU unions in Wisconsin.
The rules that govern common decency demand that the naïve and clueless atone for their living in denial and excusing the left’s vile behavior. Plausible deniability is no longer an option.
