    Why doesn't the right get/do humour

    I've mentioned before how right wing memes/cartoons etc are lame because the right just doesn't seem to 'get' humour.

    Couldn’t bear to watch all that. Greg Gutfield is so unfunny. He seems too angry to be funny. Maybe if he had a shot of Botox in is furrowed brow it would lighten up his joke delivery. Maybe.

    I think that may be why conservatives are so not funny, they are just too full of anger to really laugh.

    I would agree with the "not said enough" part.

    Comedy requires thick skin. Republicans are the most thin-skinned people on earth.

    Fox has tried numerous times to showcase Greg Gutless in a new show, and a new format, and each and every time, he falls flat on his narcissistic face.

    I think the inability to recognise humour is not because they are right-wing, but because they are from the USA...

    The right don't do humour?

    But the left are constantly trawling through comedians past jokes and comments to cancel them.

    Here's the thing, if you want a laugh, watch a comedian, not CNN or Fox.

    We're talking more about humourous political commentary I think.
    Did you watch the video ?
    It's like political memes from the right invariably miss their mark and fall flat.

    Comedy require intelligence, an element of compassion, and.........timing.

    Most ‘conservatives’ are lacking one or both of the first two and pretty much devolve to just being nasty and laughing at others misfortune instead of laughing along with them.

    This. Angry and always stewing, full of hatred and thin-skinned unless it is at anothers expense or misfortune they find nothing amusing.

    That's because you're not very bright.

    The main ingredient to be a good comedian in many cases is not a persons political bent but depression. Many of the best comedians suffered from it.
    Robin Williams, Spike Milligan, Stephen Fry, Tony Hancock and Jim Carrey amongst many others.
    The difference in humour between countries might make an interesting thread.

    How quickly would that turn into a shitfight . . . plus, there are many different types of humour within a country - good idea, though

    You know what they say? "Ignorance is bliss" Pink Floyd called it "Comfortably Numb" with intelligence comes discontent and suffering.
    below is a good video Introduction to Nietzsche where his ideas about suffering is explored.

    Very difficult to compare differences in humored between countries, because to understand the humored of a particular country requires fluency in the language and cultural context that can only be acquired by growing up in it. As Panama Hat said it will only deteriorate in a "Shit fight" IMO from trying to talk about something we don't understand.
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.
