    If it comes from false assumptions, then it just sounds delusional and the joker becomes the joke.

    Worries about civil liberties are legitimate.  Lampooning views that pooh-pooh those worries might be funny.  But what you're lampooning is simply the intelligent examination of claims, as if even questioning that something is as bad as asserted is some kind of inherently dishonest or delusional position.  That's crazy and stupid.
