Why would ridiculing a CoC have anything to do about kicking downward?
Promoters of CoCs are certainly mostly found in the same social classes
as their detractors.

Monty Python have ridiculed militant practices and jargon in the past
(e.g. the anarcho-syndicalist commune in Holy Grail, or the various
Liberation Fronts in Life Of Brian).  I'm sure if the CoC frenzy had
appeared in the 1970s they'd have made fun of it too.

Note ridiculing a CoC is not the same thing as ridiculing marginalized
people, just as ridiculing a self-proclaimed "Workers' Party" is not the
same thing as ridiculing factory workers.
