The Genre of Liberal Politics

Political nonsense (or Liberal nonsense politics) is a broad categorization of politics that uses sensical and nonsensical elements to defy language conventions or logical reasoning. Even though the most well-known form of political nonsense is class warfare hokum, the genre is present in many forms of politics.

The effect of nonsense is often caused by an excess of meaning, rather than a lack of it. Nonsense is often humorous in nature, although its humor is derived from its nonsensical nature, as opposed to most humor which is funny because it does make sense.
