"Punching up"/"Punching down", in reference to comedy.

People who say this almost always have a very black-and-white view of power dynamics. When Dave Chappelle skewers the trans community, he is criticized for punching down because troons are so, so very oppressed. Never mind that they are a protected group by even the most mainstream leftists and that only a comedian of Chappelle's stature could get away with criticizing them on Netflix.

No, Chappelle should instead punch up, which seems to mean targeting only Republicans and Christians and Trump and the cis white devils.

"Punching up/down" is overused and lame, but it's also a pat way for many groups to dodge criticism by making an issue of a comedian's "privilege".

Anyone who's ever been in a fight knows that it's harder to punch down than it is to punch up

"Punching down" really comes down to "White people are only allowed to make fun of other white people (that have their exact sex/gender combination or are filthy cis het males, of course)". It's probably also part of that weird niche protection where only black genderfluid quadriplegic midgets are allowed to play/write/make fun of black genderfluid quadriplegic midgets.
This shit is also seeping into the already sad world of Kraut comedians, which is why the only comedians making fun of Turks are also Turks.

Oh, my poor friend. You are not allowed to remind people that these poor, oppressed and marginalized groups are actually above the law :roll:

What it really comes down to is leftists still thinking they're the rebels/the counterculture and not realising that they're the establishment.

They know. Their behaviour show that. It's just dumb young people that don't and they are just useful idiots anyway.

Whatever. You understand my point. Whether they genuinely think they're the rebels or just want people to think they are, what it boils down to is criticism of the regime won't be tolerated.

Despite what they want you to believe it takes absolutely zero courage to make the same five jokes about Donald Trump
