One of the greatest weaknesses of the Woke and leftoids in general is their lack of humor.

@BattleDwarfGimli One of the greatest weaknesses of the Woke and leftoids in general is their lack of humor.

It's been said the left can't meme, and it's true. A meme is essentially a modern, internet, crowd sourced version of the old editorial cartoon. Like all cartoons or comic strips, it has to be funny, and the person creating it has to have a sense of humor. A sense of humor requires the ability to self deprecate, brutal honesty, self reflection, and the ability to read the room.

The left abandoned all these a while ago. They used to fight "The Man". But then, as they succeeded in taking over the various institutions (academia, media and entertainment, the bureaucracy, and eventually the military) they became "The Man". When you find yourself in power, it is natural to want to defend that power. That means they went from being the cool, merry pranksters fighting against the system to being the humorless, Puritanical, finger wagging, system defending, scolds we see today. They are now the inflexible, vaguely angry, stick in the mud, system pig squares their hippy grandparents fought against.

This means they can be defeated the way the hippies defeated that previous generation of squares; we only have to adopt the tactics and strategies of that earlier generation of counter-culture types. Hopefully, we can do that with slightly better music and much better personal hygiene. Mocking laughter can be a devastating political weapon. Make them scowl, make them squirm, highlight how completely uncool they really are.
