Well, Peter, from one Jew to another, my satirical posts point to the irrational rationales of our president.

Do you have any doubt the Orange Accident could have said what I wrote?

Your reaction just affirms what I know — outrage is a positive result of satire, that gets people to take action, not the opposite.

“Satire is, by definition, offensive. It is meant to make us feel uncomfortable. It is meant to make us scratch our heads, think, do a double-take, and then think again.” — Maajid Nawaz (British activist)

Thanks again for your thoughtful reply.
