I Really Hope This Is True

“The world is changing. America is changing. Europe is changing. It started last year with Brexit, yesterday there was Trump and today the freedom-loving parties gathered in Koblenz are making a stand. The genie will not go back into the bottle again, whether you like it or not. The people of the West are awakening. They are throwing off the yoke of political correctness.” –
Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom (PVV)

Political Correctness is like a set of blinders that make it impossible to see the world as it really is, that prevent us from being able to discuss any topic with total honesty. It is impossible to solve any problem without first getting to the truth of it. And, I’m sorry leftists, truth is not a subjective thing. Being obese really does have negative health consequences, and it’s not “body-shaming” to point this out. It’s not a “Rape Culture*” just because the law does not let a woman retroactively withdraw consent after giving it.  The use of logic, reason, and facts to explain how the world works is reality, not “mansplaining.”

* If you want to know what a real Rape Culture looks like, this is what a real rape culture looks like.

The 2016 Election in Three Memes

Last Tuesday, Obama gave his “farewell” address, which prompted all sorts of ridiculous, weepy posts from Obama supporters about how “classy” he was and how much they would miss him, and how his administration was “scandal-free.” Needless to say, these folks will remain clueless as to why Trump won in November as long as they put Obama on a pedestal. Most of us don’t remember the last eight years with any fondness at all. Instead, we remember a thin-skinned, spiteful, petty man who always had his mind set on one thing, and that was advancing his own power and his party’s grip on power.

Back in October 2013, I wrote a post where I called Obama’s administration the Dawn Davenport Presidency, and it has remained as true in the intervening years as it was then. At the time, I used the website meme creator to create a meme which I considered using to illustrate that post, but I didn’t post it at the time. Now that there are only five days remaining in Obama’s second term, I am bringing it back, because it provides one explanation for what happened with the voters in 2016.

Of course, this election was also about Hillary Clinton.

In the past week, there has been a lot of buzz about Meryl Streep’s harangue at the Golden Globe Awards. Over the summer, though, Streep also attracted attention for two things, her film about Florence Foster Jenkins, and her deranged appearance during her speech at the Democrat National Convention in August. The Jenkins film was what interested me, though, because it seemed to offer a perfect metaphor for Clinton’s political career. Florence Foster Jenkins was famous for having a tin ear and little talent in her chosen field. She benefited largely from her husband’s connections.

Last February at ZeroHedge, I saw a great post outlining Hillary Clinton’s Six Foreign Policy Catastrophes where a commenter named Elliott Eldrich memorably declared: “Hillary’s greatest ability is her uncanny talent for producing the most wretched results imaginable, and then loudly claiming how amazing her accomplishments are. I believe it’s because she somehow manages to convince herself of this first, which makes selling it to others all the easier. She’s the Florence Foster Jenkins of statecraft.”

Cindy Brady in the Doghouse

Susan Olson — who  a way, long time ago was a lisping, pig-tailed child actress — got into a Facebook flame war with a Z-list gay actor (Leon Accord-Whiting), and as a result, she’s out of a job. Mainly because of saying stuff like this:

“Hey there little p–sy, let me get my big boy pants on and Reallly take you on!!! What a snake in the grass you are you lying piece of s–t too cowardly to confront me in real life so you do it on Facebook. You are the biggest f—-t ass in the world the biggest p–sy! My D–k is bigger than yours Which ain’t sayin much! What a true piece of s–t you are! Lying f—-t!”

She used to go off on Eve Plumb the same way.

All kidding aside, even though this Leon Acord-Whiting person seems like a complete d-bag, this should serve to remind us there is absolutely no upside to getting into a fight on social media. You would think, a decade into this social media phenomenon, we would all be aware of that. But, apparently, not.

Really, Ms. Olson, a 55 year old woman should know better. You should just know better.

Will PC Ruin the MST3K Reboot?

Posted by V the K at 11:36 am - July 9, 2016.
Filed under: Political Correctness

Probably. The reboot is being driven by Joel Hodgson, who was never as funny as Mike to begin with. Joel always seemed ored and too cool for the room. Mike Nelson had a fresh enthusiasm for the material. I have always preferred Mike to Joel.

If this review of the new host’s debut is any indication, I’m not going to like the new direction.

More importantly, we got a hint of the new voice (Jonah) Ray will presumably provide; Ray’s riffs included jabs at xenophobia, racism, cat-calling, and Internet trolls.

But if the new show is going to be MSJWT3K — forget it. I’ll stick with Rifftrax.

Yes, even though Felicia Day will be attached to the reboot.

Europe will be speaking German

…at some point, I predict. For now, they’re simply abandoning English.

The more that countries leave the EU (except Germany), the larger Germany looms in it.


Different subject (via Instapundit and Betsy Newmark): It seems that al Qaeda has gone politically-correct, or rather, what the Left would consider racially-correct:
Lone wolf jihadists should target white Americans so no one mistakes their terror attacks for hate crimes unrelated to the cause of radical Islam, Al Qaeda writes in the latest edition of its online magazine.

Sadly, we must consider what this portends for future tragic massacres by ISIS / al Qaeda of the U.S. gay community.

  • Will they again target gays? (from their Islamist gay-hatred and/or the tendency of ‘visible’ gays to be white)
  • Or grant us a sort of ‘exemption’? (so that the meaning of their next attack can’t be obscured, as the Gay Left obscured the Islamist nature of Omar Mateen’s attack)

Discuss.

New York City to Fine Businesses for Political Incorrectness

Posted by V the K at 8:21 am - May 19, 2016.
Filed under: Political Correctness

New York City — once again raising the question of why the hell would any sane person want to live there — is fixing to levy six-figure fines against businesses that don’t use the politically correct pronoun when addressing gender appropriators.

 A directive issued by the city’s Commission on Human Rights puts merchants and their employees on notice that fines will be levied against businesses that fail to use a customer’s or client’s preferred gender pronoun in transactions.

The Commission can impose civil penalties up to $125,000 for violations, and up to $250,000 for violations that are the result of willful, wanton, or malicious conduct.

Does anyone else remember when the left used to claim that political correctness was just a right-wing myth?

“Political correctness” symbolizes speech codes and censorship. It is largely a myth propagated by the conservative right. The belief in a monolithic and fascist politically correct culture that preys on conservatives and conservative ideology is often accompanied by delusions of persecution, as well as paranoia.

A suggestion in the comments is that New Yorkers can avoid any of these fines by addressing each other as “comrade.” Works for me.

Update: In America’s Hat, they want to send people who aren’t onboard with Transgender Political Correctness to prison for a couple of years. You only get six months in jail in Canada for killing a moose out of season, so they are obviously pretty serious about this. Hurting a gender appropriators feelings = four dead moose. Contemplate that for a moment.

Sports Figure Fired for Un-PC Wrongthink

Posted by V the K at 8:51 am - April 21, 2016.
Filed under: Political Correctness

Curt Shilling was fired from ESPN (a sports-themed leftist propaganda network) for his radical and extremist opinion that men should use the men’s room and ladies should use the ladies room.

Schilling, a baseball analyst for ESPN and former Red Sox pitcher, posted a Facebook comment criticizing a transgender women.

“A man is a man no matter what they call themselves,” read Schilling’s comment, which he apparently posted in response to a photo about a recent North Carolina law that restricts transgender people’s access to bathrooms and locker rooms. “I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”

ESPN issued a statement on Tuesday, saying “ESPN is an inclusive company. Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.”

The second to the last sentence is a lie; by firing Schilling for having the wrong opinion, they have proven that they are not ‘inclusive’ at all. But, as a private company, they have and should have the right to fire people whose values conflict with their own.

And, that same standard ought to apply to Christian businesses who don’t want to participate in homosexual weddings, but for some reason it doesn’t.  And by “some reason,” I mean the systematic abuse of state power to selectively enable certain politically favored groups to bully other politically disfavored groups.

This is not about empathy for transgendereds; it’s about enforcing compliance with political correctness and punishing those who refuse to comply. In other words, it’s about using power to bully others.

Just in Case You Weren’t Convinced Left-Wing SJW’s Are Completely Insane

A college student in Scotland has been targeted with violating a ‘Safe Space’ because she raised her hand in the course of a group discussion.

 A university student was threatened with being thrown out of a meeting after being accused of violating “safe space” rules – by raising her hand.

Ms Wilson, 22, was subject to a “safe space complaint” over her supposedly “inappropriate hand gestures” during a student council meeting.

Among the rules the left would like to impose on all of us is the idea that you can never, ever do anything that might make a neurotically hypersensitive individual in any way uncomfortable.

According to the association’s rules, student council meetings should be held in a “safe space environment”, defined as “a space which is welcoming and safe and includes the prohibition of discriminatory language and actions”.

This includes “refraining from hand gestures which denote disagreement”, or “in any other way indicating disagreement with a point or points being made”.

According to ‘Safe Space’ rules, you are not allowed to indicate disagreement by making any forbidden gesture… nodding your head, shaking your head, shrugging, jazz hands… all forbidden because they are “triggering.”

According to EUSA safe space rules, only gestures that indicate agreement are “permissible”, and then only as long as “these gestures are generally understood and not used in an intimidating manner.”

This isn’t about sensitivity to the feelings of idiots; this is a means for the left to control discussion and punish those who dissent from the One Acceptable Politically Correct Viewpoint.

Robert Stacy McCain – a blogger who often reports with great accuracy on radical feminism — has had his Twitter account suspended by Twitter’s Orwellian “Trust and Safety Committee.”.

The left is, of course, celebrating this development.

Once again, I am reminded when the speech below reflected consensus liberalism. To believe in Free Speech today, unfortunately, marks one as a racist, sexist, homophobic enemy of Social Justice.

What if, instead of a Mohammedan terrorist who had shot up state employees at a Christmas Party … Tim Cook were asked to crack the iPhone of a southern white Christian who had murdered people at a gay nightclub? Or an iPhone owned by someone who made undercover videos of Planned Parenthood?

Do you think he would do it? Do you think the left and the media (but I repeat myself) would be covering this story in a *very* different way?

“Segregation Now, Segregation Forever” – Modern Progressives

The University of Connecticut is planning on building a dorm to segregate its African-American students, and giving it an appropriately ghettoized name.

Called the ScHOLA2RS House, the living community for African American males is set to open in 2016. According to UConn’s website, the ScHOLA2RS House is “a scholastic initiative to groom, nurture, and train the next generation of leaders to address grand challenges in society through the promotion of academic success in undergraduate programs at the University of Connecticut and in competitive graduate programs.”

Dr. Erik Hines, an assistant professor of educational psychology and the future faculty advisor to those in the dorm, said UConn will implement the living space as a “forward-thinking” solution to the fact that black male students graduate at a lower rate.

Which I believe is the PC version of “Colored folk is best off if they keep with their own kind.”

If the issue is really that African-American students are failing, how is putting them all into one segregated building the answer? And what about White and Hispanic students who are failing? Shouldn’t they get help developing better study habits as well?

If “White Privilege” is a problem is the ultimate Progressive solution by segregating the races into their own colleges.

Here’s an interesting hypothesis: What if the whole campus SJW Movement is just leftists tricking their dumbest and most radical students into blaming ‘The Patriarchy’ and ‘White Privilege’ for the fact that the Leftist-Academic-Complex has tricked them into going heavily into debt financing worthless educations?

Social Justice Wankers: MLK’s Dream Speech Is Kinda Un-PC

Filed under: Political Correctness

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I have a dream…”

Hey! Hey! Move it along, bigot. The University of Oregon doesn’t need your hate speech.

Seriously, the Student Government at the University of Oregon considered removing MLK’s most famous quote from a campus building under renovation, because, y’know… what’s so special about black people?

But as renovation continues, the Oregon Student Union seriously considered replacing that quote. “The quote is not going to change,” reports student paper Oregon Daily Emerald, “but that decision was not made without some hard thought by the Student Union Board.”

When the student union considered the question, some students asked, “Does the MLK quote represent us today?” The problem wasn’t so much the message, but the fact that it only focused on racial diversity instead of gender identity.

“Diversity is so much more than race,” said one sophomore architecture major. “Obviously race still plays a big role. But there are people who identify differently in gender and all sorts of things like that.”

Americans Grow Fed Up with Elite Condescension

From RCP: Americans Are Tired of Elites Considering Them Stupid and Vicious

George W. Bush, after the attacks of Sept. 11 made a point of visiting mosques and calling Islam a religion of peace.

Undoubtedly, he then feared that many Americans would attack and assault Muslims, actual or perceived, and a very few such attacks occurred. But government statistics count far fewer “hate crimes” against Muslims than against Jews.

Nonetheless Obama still behaves as if any suggestion that terrorists shouting “Allahu akbar!” has something to do with Islam will spark massacres and persecution across the country. The American people are seen as a great beast, incapable of reason or cool judgment. Stupid and vicious.

The Rebellion against Political Correctness…. which Donald Trump has successfully tapped into… is in part a rebellion against the Ruling Classes condescending to us; which is a passive aggressive way of expressing their contempt for us.

Back when I lived in Maryland, I knew more than a few people who thought that everything west of the DC suburbs and east of I-5 was a savage wasteland filled with dangerous inbred hicks. When we decided to move to the Midwest, a lot of people expressed what they thought was genuine concern for our safety. It’s incredibly how provincial the coastal elites are. And, yes, the contempt of the coastal elites for ‘Flyover Country’ is deep and sincere.

Swedish Police No Longer Allowed to Describe Race or National Origin of Suspects

Posted by V the K at 1:40 pm - January 16, 2016.
Filed under: Political Correctness

The Left will go to great lengths to deny reality, and prevent facts from destroying The Sacred Narrative.

Swedish police will no longer be able to give descriptions of alleged criminals for fear of being seen as racist.

According to an internal letter, police in capital city Stockholm are instructed to refrain from describing suspects’ race and nationality, according to news website Speisa.

The letter specifies that, for everyday crimes such as burglary, basic information such as ethnicity, nationality, skin colour and height should not be given.

Imagine future police reports: “Police have released a description of the suspects in the latest series of gang rapes. They are described as males with penises. The public is warned to be on the lookout for males with penises, and to report any males with penises to the authorities.”

This policy has been unofficial policy among American news reporters for quite some time, and the public has learned to decipher the race and ethnicity and political affiliation of suspects from the information left out of news accounts. So, as a result of this political correctness, a lot of people have kind of become more racist because if the police and the media don’t state the race or ethnicity of a suspect, they just automatically assume it’s a member of a minority community.

There is a great huge difference between the racist assumption “All members of Race X are criminals” and the equally racist counter-assumption “Acknowledging that some members of Race X commit crimes is equivalent to saying all members of Race X are criminals.” However, this nuance is lost on the Progressive Left.

After all, a rapist is just as likely to look like Bill Clinton as Bill Cosby.

SJWs: Hollywood’s Biggest Night Is a Racist Anachronism

Today’s Social Justice tantrum concerns the Academy Award nominations. Apparently, not enough non-white people received nomination.

It really doesn’t surprise me that the Culture of the Participation Trophy has decided that Academy Awards are an entitlement. They should just hand out Oscars to everybody, like the high school that had 117 valedictorians.

BTW, in this era of gender equality, why are there still separate categories for Best Actor andBest Actress.

Not very progressive, if you ask me.

Rape Culture

Over New Year’s Eve, at least 60 German women were sexually assaulted by over 1,000 Mohammedan migrants in Cologne.

Previously, German women were instructed to dress modestly to avoid offending their new Mohammedan overlords.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the Rolling Stone to do a big story on this. Also for the American Feminist Branch of the Democrat-Media Complex to raise any alarms about the Regime’s plan to add hundreds of thousands of additional Momhammedan “refugees.”

They’re too busy planning the theme for the next ‘Slut-Walk.’ I think they’re going with “Smash the Patriarchy.”

 

2016 “Dangerous Faggot” of the Year: Milo Yiannopoulus

If you are not following this guy, you should be. His resolution for 2016 is Total War on the Social Justice Wankers.

It’s now clear that progressives, lecturing the rest of us on how we ought to live from their bully pulpits in the media, academia and the entertainment industry, are terrified of the internet and don’t want to know what we have to say. Well, tough. In 2016, it’s time for the counterculture to go to war. Over the past year, I’ve seen people from all over the world stand up and fight back against the authoritarian, censorious world being built around us.

From video games to reddit to college campuses, we’re beginning to realise that there are more of us than there are of them. Our YouTube videos get more views, our fundraisers smash their targets, our numbers on social media eclipse theirs. And by the way: we see your hypocrisy. Social justice is always a cover for something, as the endless queue of progressives who get busted for being sex pests or worse continues to grow.

The public is getting sick of nasty, spiteful rants from people who pretend that their objectives are nice-sounding things like “diversity” and “equality” but who are really just bullies.

2015: The Year of the Hissy Fit

[Language Warning]

YouTube Preview Image

The shrieking harpy in this video was upset because the gentleman in the video sent an email in which he expressed an opinion that it really wasn’t the university’s business to regulate how students should dress up for Halloween.

2015 was the year every college campus (seemingly) became Berkeley. College students at the University of Missouri threw a massive hissy fit (led by the privileged black son of a millionaire father) because they didn’t think their solidly-left-wing president expressed sufficient solidarity with students upset over racial incidents of dubious providence occurring on or near campus. Students at Oberlin College in Ohio threw an end year tantrum because cafeteria food was servedin a manner deemed insufficiently culturally sensitive.

In Baltimore, #BlackLivesMatter activists (and the people they claim to represent) burned out their own neighborhoods and killed each other some 343 times so far in order to teach the White Power Structure a lesson; the White Power Structure in this case being a city run by a black mayor, a majority black city council and a majority black police force led by a black police chief. Activists in Oakland CA and Ferguson MO made their feelings known in a similar matter. Other activists took on the white power structure by shutting down shopping malls and highways and by staring at white liberals eating Sunday brunch.

Viewers of the entertainment industry’s annual Orgy of Self-Celebration And Repugnant Smugness (OSCARS) were treated to the spectacle of a millionaire actress whining about income inequality. Another mentally ill feminist spent two years dragging a mattress around a college campus because university officials refused to prosecute a boy for refusing her sexual advances after accepting her sexual advances. In Oregon, a student was allegedly banned from campus because he resembled a boy a mentally ill feminist had had an unhappy sexual encounter with.

Other feminists showed their outrage at being objectified as sexual objects by joining in Slut-Walks and parading around half-naked.

There was also the Mohammedan woman who became a hero to the cry-bully left when she threw a tantrum because a flight attendant didn’t give her a full can of soda (which nobody gets in the Age of the Flying Cattle Car).

Black activists, spoiled college brats, and feminists were joined in 2015 by science fiction writers… of all people. The Hugo awards were effectively sabotaged by Social Justice Warriors, who decided if awards couldn’t be given on the basis of Victim-Group Identity, they would rather give no awards at all.

And it wasn’t all on the social justice left. Some of the most epic tantrums came from the Republican Establishment as they realized their plans for a Bush sequel were being shot down by vulgarian with a ridiculous hairdo.

The really scary part of this is look at the video again. The target of that deranged woman was forced to resign. Also, the president of the University of Missouri was forced to resign. And Oberlin officials apologized for serving ethnic food in a culturally insensitive manner and promised to do better in the future. The tantrum-throwers are winning. So, it’s only going to get worse.

2015: The Year of the Bully

Bullies are people who delight in using a position of power to inflict suffering on people with little or no power. As the progressive left accumulated unprecedented power in the Obama Era, they have demonstrated themselves to be peerless bullies.

The Progressive Left dominates the judiciary, the media, and nearly all Government bureaucracies. As such, they were able to force the public to accept gay marriage as a matter of law. The gay left had previously claimed that all they wanted was ‘Equality,’ defined as state recognition of gay relationships as marriages. As it turned out, achieving this goal was not enough. Those who did not support gay marriage had to be punished, had to be forced to acknowledge the greatness of the gay left; whether it was a Silicon Valley Executive who donated to a group supporting traditional marriage, or a mom and pop bakery who declined to participate in a gay wedding. The gay left used their control of the courts, the media, and some government agencies to punish their defeated opponents. They became bullies.

The path from “victim” to bully was even shorter for the sexually dysphoric. Refusing to believe that a human being with a penis is a brave and stunning woman brought down the wrath of the gender-bullies. By the end of the year, the city of New York announced a plan to inflict fines of tens of thousands of dollars on those who offended the sexually dysphoric by not using their preferred made-up pronoun or in any other way offending their self-proclaimed “gender identity.”

2015 also brought the rise of the ‘Cry-Bully.’ The Cry-Bully is a product of what happens when a spoiled and coddled generation of ‘Special Snowflakes’ is incubated in a college environment where victimhood is prized above all else. Above all else, cry-bullies seek the power to deny Free Speech to those who would disagree with them, claiming that such words and opinions are traumatizing to them. Their inability to deal with mere words is to be seen not as neurosis or weakness, but as something ennobling.

As 2015 closes, the front-running candidates for both the Democrats and the Republicans could be described as bullies. Hillary Clinton has a long history of treating underlings, critics, and her husband’s women with abuse and contempt, and her position of power within the Democrat Party has enabled her to construct a primary process that amounts to an anointment. Jeb Bush thought his network of cronies and power players would assure him a walk to the Republican nomination. Instead, he ran into a more traditional type of bully, Donald Trump. To a segment of the Republican Party dispirited and demoralized by their party leadership’s consistent knuckling under to Democrat bullying; Trump’s swagger and insults make some people feel like they are on the other side of the power equation for once. After decades of ‘Go Along to Get Along,’ it can be hard to blame them?

Protecting Special Snowflakes from Harsh Reality

This is of a piece with the Dinesh D’Souza story from Saturday. Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro was invited to give a talk at a high school in California. About mid-way into the talk, one of the schools educrats cut off his speech and dismissed students because Shapiro had said something so outrageous that it “crossed the line” of acceptable discourse.

What did he say? He said that a lot of times, poor people are poor because they make bad financial choices.

I am not making this up.

“The reason people are permanently poor in the United States,” Shapiro said, “isn’t because they don’t have money, it’s because they suck with money. The reasons people are temporarily poor can vary.” As a rumble ran through the crowd, Shapiro continued, “That’s not even controversial. If you’re permanently poor [in America] for your entire life, you’re not great with money by definition…”

That’s when Nafarrete stepped in and dismissed the students.

[Snip]

As they left, Shapiro told Breitbart News, Nafarrete stated that he had to let the students go in order to “protect” their feelings, since many came from low-income homes.

Not to mention, teaching people that they, and not the Government, are responsible for their own economic security is Blasphemy Against the Progressive State.
