Thank you. Urges to 'lighten up' is a common strategy used to diminish another whose stand sits uncomfortably with the status quo. Ridicule is never a source of amusement. It is,however, influential among those who demonstrate little interest in informing themselves or scratching the surfaces of accepted unchallenged views. In politics distortions work, it seeems.
