Ridicule is not only an effective weapon, it is often the only weapon that can be used against dangerous, inane foolishness.
Ridicule is manâ€™s most potent weapon. Itâ€™s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

Rule 5 – Rules For Radicals, 1971
Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them.

Some surprising citizens of America understand this and are not afraid to make use ridicule in the attempt effect change and restore hope for the rebirth of America and the cessation of certain forms of destructive stupidity.
During the opening segment of the 2013 Country Music Awards (CMA), hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley did a hilarious skit and song about the abysmal but expected failure that has been the ObamaCare quasi-launch.
As you might guess, American viewers were laughing out loud at this lampooning of Obama’s signature and singular “achievement.” Contriwise, Liberals and their minority tenants – the few of the latter that actually watch the CMA show – were outraged.
The outrage is unsurprising. After all, this was a pair of country music performers – a quintessentially White and American musical genre – performing for an audience that is overwhelmingly equally White and American, is going to be declared as racists, knuckle-draggers, and with other epithets for lampooning any of Obama’s many failures.
Of course, the Liberals’ and minorities’ outraged response is just more evidence that ridicule is both effective and the best and only non-lethal weapon against Obama, his destructive foolishness, and his followers. 😉
BONUS: If you’re like Brad Paisley and myself until quite recently and don’t know what twerking is, this is twerking:
I’ve got to say that, while I don’t care for music in the least, I do like the moves these women are doing. Much like traditional – not Cabaret! – belly dancing, it’s a very pleasant mixture of eroticism and extreme precision and muscle control.
