ABC’s Last Man Standing has set the network TV standard for mocking the leftist point of view (though South Park is still king). It’s a rarity on television these days, I know. But the few programs that dare set foot on that territory have found an underserved market that is alive and well. For this, Last Man Standing and South Park, I salute you. On the most recent episode, Eve had to take part in a mock debate and argue as a liberal.
Eve: I’ve been researching liberal positions. I Googled “How to talk out of your ass,” but that was no help. By the way, never Google “How to talk out of your ass.”
Ryan: Look, if you really want to prepare, we should have a mock debate.
Eve: That’s a good idea. You spew your usual garbage, and I’ll mock you.
Ryan: No, because then you’ll never learn how to defend a liberal’s point of view.
Eve: That’s because it has no defense! Zing! How’s that for a cogent argument?
Ryan: First sign of a bad argument — the need for the word “Zing.” Look, if you want to win, you got to practice saying what a liberal would say.
Eve: Okay. Hooray for taxes! Give me free stuff! White men suck! You mean like that?
It’s funny because it’s all true!
Look no further than the comment section of any website with any news story. White privilege? Check. LGBTQAI (silent F)? Check. RAISING TAXES ON THE ONE PERCENT!!? Double check, unless you’re the rich person and you’d rather not raise your own taxes (we’re looking at you, Bernie Sanders).
Arguing with a leftists is mostly an exercise in futility. Primarily because they don’t actually care about opposing ideas. What matters is their feelings. The life of a leftist is quite simple. Wake up, feel something, convince yourself that you care about people. Also, don’t put those feelings or caring into action other than protesting and making hashtags (read Dear ‘Feminists’: You’ll Never Be Relevant Until You Address Islam’s Real Rape Culture…) Don’t be ridiculous. Effort? Work? Don’t be daft.. That’s why people get taxed, yo, so leftists can continue their feeling/caring full time. Read Dear #FightFor15 Whiners: Stop Protesting. Start Earning…
That’s why Last Man Standing tickles our funny bones. We’ve all experienced it. Debating a leftist only to throw up our hands simultaneously throwing up our lunches. Then they show us their lesbian girlfriends. NOTE: the two are unrelated.
Here’s an example of said debate below:
