Anyone who says you can’t satirize the left isn’t trying hard enough (see WATCH: This is What a Woke Sex Talk Looks Like in 2019 and ‘Secret Life of Pets 2’ Attacked by Leftists for not Being Woke Enough). Tell me the woke teacher in this We The Internet video isn’t scarily real.
“In an ideal world we’d all be gay!”
I’m not sure if this is a response to the Yale study saying white liberals dumb down speech when talking to minorities. Or just a group of writers and comedians sitting around with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and a Michelle Pfeiffer movie, playing “Wouldn’t It Be Funny If….” But it brought a few chuckles, and that’s really all that we’re here for.
Exit question: do you think the left has gone so far to the left (think Christian Right/Moral Majority in the 80s), that it’s starting to swing back to the center? We the Internet is based out of New York City. Not exactly MAGA hat-wearing “ZOMG own the libs!” country. There’s a decent chance some people working on this video may even consider themselves classical liberals themselves. But leftists are so far gone, you can’t help but laugh at them.
It’s making for an interesting time in comedy.
