I set about writing this article thinking it would be easy, but when the editors told me it would be tactless to include my own HILARIOUS videos from 2011, that left me with NINE GAPING holes to fill! Even with me, the field of conservative, right-sided, liberty-loving humorous videos is indeed thin. Sadly, most of the funny is on the other side of the debate, but the exciting thing is how fast that is changing!
2011 was a great year for right-sided funny videos. Below are my top ten, #1 being the best in my view. I hope you will use the comments section to call out any that I’ve missed, as I’m sure there are some, and of course to tell me how I have all these in the wrong order.
Someone on Roger Williams’ staff is brilliant. Good for the person who thought of this, and good for Roger Williams for having the guts to go along with an unconventional ad and give us all a good laugh. Roger Williams is The Donkey Whisperer. Watch him try to turn these stubborn asses into elephants. “You’re not a victim!”
Obama’s fascist AttackWatch.com SNAFU was comedy gold. I wrote a very popular piece on it for PJ Media and one of my favorite videos of 2011 is the AttackWatch commercial parody by Misfit Politics. These guys came out of nowhere and they are just freaking brilliant!
In this video, economically clueless President Obama has a brand new idea to solve the debt: a Kickstarter campaign where everyone can contribute money to solve our debt problems. And like any Kickstarter project, there are gifts depending on the size of your contribution. Such as an “American flag pin. I don’t need it.” Of course you don’t, Barack…would you prefer an Iranian flag pin?
Steven Crowder, talented funny man, had a number of good videos this year, but I love this one titled UNION SUPERPOWER! Featuring “Wisconsin Vern.” It’s informative, funny, and he’s got great chemistry with his pal Wisconsin Vern:
Remy writes wonderfully clever lyrics and can sing in so many styles. In this video, he explains how our soldiers fought and died so we could get groped at airports, among other things.
I had to include one of these Bad Lip Reading parodies even though the creator might be a liberal. They’re funny and not at all mean spirited. The one featuring Rick Perry is a close second to my favorite, which is this one with Ron Paul. “Hoo-Ha, Cherry Soda!”
This is exactly what I think of environmentalists. They’re really just a bunch of nihilistic haters and so I loved this Funny or Die video featuring Don Cheadle as Captain Planet showing his true human-hating colors.
This is one of the funniest things I saw all year so I’m including it even though it’s not technically a “video.” Martin Short wrote a little ditty about the death of Osama bin Laden for Letterman and, well, get a tissue ready – TEARS OF LAUGHTER await you:
Oh Remy, Remy, Remy…I wish we were friends. (Call me!)
This video made a huge splash. I think we were all outraged by Elizabeth Warren’s infamously vehement and disgustingly unjust bitter, envy-filled trashing of the rich, small business owners, and really, any hard-working American. So it was GLORIOUS to see her get made fun of so expertly by actress Molly Erdman, who plays Elizabeth Warren, with writing by Eddie Geller.
Happy New Year Right-Siders! Thanks for your support of political satire!
