“By the way, making fun of obvious faults, or ridicule, or satire, is a nice way to let off steam in this rather trying times for the human race.”

Yes, but at a dinner party or among friends of like mind. But not so much on a large special interest list. It diminishes you. Just as it does performing artists who choose to preach from the stage, it disturbs a large portion of an audience that has paid to hear them perform.

Here’s a test: would you direct ridicule or satire at a leader of a “protected group” no matter how ridiculous? That would take a huge amount of courage.
