“Lefties’ claims of “satire” are strictly out of Alinsky’s Rules For Spoiled Brats.”

Just what kind of satire do you believe should be permitted?

It's not a question of satire being "permitted."

We have to be alert to prevent "satire" from being presented to the public as "fact." It is indeed an Alinsky spoiled-brat tactic to use satire for that purpose. IMO.

The example of Esquire -- I think it was -- claims that it was just satire.. No, no. They weren't trying to damage Dr. Corsi at all.

In that manner it is no better than flat-out lies -- for example google "potatoe spelling" and quayle shows up. In this case it is not satire -- it's became the basis for satire -- but it was plain lying by MSM employees, et al.

I actually do recall the day that happened and I recall the initial MSM reports. By my recollection is was the next day that using phonetic spelling became proof that one is stupid -- it is if one is a conservative and one is the VP and a long popular joke is: If President G.W. Bush is assassinated the Secret Service is instructed to immediately shoot the Vice President.

We are defending against an enemy (one of them) who are a bunch of aging psycho spoiled brats and their ideological offspring. Arguable now "the Establishment." As they used to say, "Bring it all down, man."
