the use of irony to mock or convey contempt. (Google search “Sarcasm”)

*the following remark is meant to be taken sarcastically but I predict that many in North Carolina will begrudgingly align with it in coming months because of external pressures:

Wow! with all of this new pressure from so many organizations it is now obvious to me that those who disagree with the moral and sexual revolution are akin to southern racists in the Jim Crow era and should be coerced into obedience and acceptance of the new and correct views of sexuality. How could I have been so blind until now? Thanks to the help of well meaning and principled organizations, I have been convinced and can finally shake off the tired old views of past generations that have impeded social progress. Only now, after these organizations have taken hundreds of millions of dollars from the economy of North Carolina (my state) do I see how foolish and ignorant I was in my views related to bathrooms. Thank you ACC, NBA, and NCAA and the hundreds of other socially relevant groups who are taking an exemplary stand for doing the right thing.
