Welcome to the new world of American politics where Alinskyites have been hoisted by their own petard and beaten over the head with their master’s playbook.

Things are becoming progressively worse for American leftists when Saturday Night Live begins satirizing their snowflakes.

Check out SNL’s skit, The Bubble, a safe-space community where life goes on for progressive “Americans” as if the 2016 general election never happened.

The inhabitants of the One State live in a rationally planned society in which all activities are programmed according to the Table of Hours.

The only human activity which has not been completely organized is the sexual act. Citizens are allowed free unscheduled time each day, referred to as the Personal Hours, in which they are allowed to draw the curtains of their glass rooms and engage in sexual or creative artistic activity.

Love and marriage have been eliminated. Any citizen may register to have sexual relations with any other citizen by obtaining a pink coupon. Conformity of thought, dress, and behavior is rigidly enforced. All citizens wear blue-gray uniforms and are identified by a number.”
