What Progressive Sense of Humor?

Progressives have no problem making fun of their enemies, but like schoolyard bullies, they are the first to complain when they are the target.

The latest incident involved a Saturday Night Live skit poking fun at New York Gov. David Paterson who is blind.

Paterson himself denounced it as a “third-grade depiction of people and the way they look.”

I don't recall the governor denouncing the SNL depiction of Gov. Sarah Palin (which I, a Palin supporter, personally thought was hilarious).

This is the second time recently that Saturday Night Live has fallen afoul of progressive fascists.

Back in October, SNL came under severe fire from the left for a skit they did on the federal bail-out package that satirized such progressive icons as George Soros, Herbert and Marion Sandler, Rep. Barney Frank and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The skit was yanked from YouTube and a sanitized version later posted.

It seems the same thing is happening now with the Paterson skit, which has been removed from the site with the explanation, “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by NBC Universal.”

Both Marxists and their National Socialist cousins believe that all art must serve a political purpose. Their inheritors in the American progressive movement seem to have taken that doctrine to heart.
