The Not So Funny Side Of Satire

This morning many of us awoke to hear the news of the tragedy that occurred to a satirical news organization in France. It will take a while for the true horror of this event to register with many of us who also write satire. These were brothers and sisters who were willing to point out problems that they saw in the world around them using a humorous twist.

Any country, politician, group, product, organization, event, and yes, even religion, can become the focus of satire. When we see things that push the limits of reason and common sense, we will push it further to show just how absurd something really is. We can write funny stories about cats all day long, but that will never evoke any real thought about what is happening in the world.

Each of us who decide to express ourselves in this manner, know in our hearts that there are those that will be offended. I’ve heard many writers joke about having to go into hiding after their next article is published, unfortunately, sometimes it’s not really a joke, but a deeper understanding of just how many people will never see the irony of their words, and only see themselves as the victim of an attack.

Today we are hurt, we mourn for those who have passed, but we also will not stop. To offer silence at the hand of violence is not who we are, we will continue to turn our views of the world into something that not only amuses you, but hopefully, also makes you stop and think for a few minutes. Our brothers and sisters in France will also regroup, their voices will also not be silenced by this tragedy, and we look forward to the day when they are once again putting their voices into print.

The evil talking head spewing nothing but half facts and conjecture returns to continue to fill the empty heads of the brain dead with her distorted and self serving version of history and events. Read more Evil Again Seeps Into Our Lives (Not the IRS This Time Either)

His firmly held belief is that many in the liberal media are taking his irrational comments and using them against him in an effort to form public opinion so that the overall safety of citizens would out weigh his personal desire to continue to enrich himself with money from gun manufactures.
