A sampling of my work in political satire

sat·ire:

The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues

There are few things I enjoy more than formatting evidence in funny ways, to mock and humiliate those who are at war with freedom, America, Israel and Western civilization, and who use bullying as a means of intimidating the good guys into submission.

My ultimate objective in this regard is to create satire that is understandable and persuasive to the widest possible audience, way beyond the “choirs” that many of my contemporaries seek to amuse.  That’s why, whenever possible, I provide the audience with a briefer on the evidence within the satire itself, to enable the curious and skeptical to see for themselves the sources upon which I am basing my views, and ridicule.

Here’s an example of a work product from several years ago, that encompasses all these ideals, in regards to leftists’ shrieks of outrage over the prospect of America building a vitally-needed physical barrier at our southern border, to ensure the only people who are able to enter US soil are those we’ve authorized to do so. Note that I provide a link at the end of the video to a page that contains all of my source evidence:

This was my most publicized political satire, for which Facebook suspended me — three years later, and it caught the eye of a reporter for the Daily Caller.

From FB Suspends User Critiquing Martyrdom – The Daily Caller, March 10, 2018

Facebook suspended a user in March for critiquing Palestinians who force their kids to fire rockets at Israel.

Blogger Jon Sutz of Save the West found himself the target of a one-week Facebook suspension for a post he made satirizing Palestinian martyrdom, according to information he sent to The Daily Caller News Foundation. Sutz’s post consisted of a parody dialogue between a Palestinian terrorist and his nephews, who are reluctant to shoot rockets at Jews.

“C’mon kids, let’s go shoot off some rockets at the Jews!!!” begins the uncle in Sutz’s hypothetical dialogue.

The kids say, “But uncle, won’t they shoot back? Won’t we get hurt, or killed?” to which the uncle responds, “Well duh, that’s kind of the point, Ahmed. If they fire back, and you get killed, we know the ‘news’ media that we allow in here will show your mangled corpses to the world, and claim that the rotten Zionists are murdering innocent Muslim children again.”

Facebook suspended Sutz with a probationary 30-day ban should he violate the social media company’s community standards again.

“My satirical post was based on verifiable facts,” Sutz told Facebook using the feedback feature for his suspension. The blogger linked to three articles, which included descriptions of Hamas’ launching of rockets from civilian regions and reported use of children as human shield[s].

Facebook wrote to me soon after the Daily Caller article was published, and claimed my ban was a “mistake”:

A Facebook spokeswoman told TheDCNF that a member of Facebook’s review team mistakenly deleted Sutz’s post and suspended his account upon receipt of reports that the content violated the site’s community standards. Facebook had restored Sutz’s post, restored access to his account, and apologized to the Save the West blogger, the spokeswoman noted.
