Anti-PC Fun: Get “30 years” if you are sexist against a privileged white woman with a blog :-)

Never ever take the thought police seriously.


I’m not sexist, I’m not racist, I’m not ageist.

We just hate old white men.

Comedian: Neel Kolhatkar, Melbourne. | Youtube.

UPDATE: I’m reminded of this Sydney Morning Herald article two weeks ago. “Seven words you didn’t know were racist”. (Kaffir Lime. Peanut Gallery. Barbarian. Paddy Wagon. Gyp. Bugger and Sold down the River.) We can always rely on the SMH.

      You ain’t seen nothing yet…Just observe the so-called “Social Justice Warrior” movement that is online. (I refer to them as Social Justice W@nkers.)

      This is a bunch of Politically Correct Extremists who:
      * will bully anyone who don’t sing to their narratives. Things like “rape culture”, etc…This includes each other! (If anyone steps out of line.)
      * play manipulative games of deception, organising lynch mobs on their targets, etc.
      * portray themselves as victims when questioned. (Self defense measure).
      * must always create a hash tag on Twitter to demonstrate their fake outrage. (Its a self-esteem, ego, moral superiority complex thing).
      If you have a cause, you need a hash tag! => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeXX_zwhmi8

      Like their elder Leftist activist politician/academic counterparts, these folks produce nothing of tangible value. As such, they will create or look for problems that don’t exist and put themselves as the solution providers of those problems.

      They are the by-products of the Political Correctness education…What some call: The Church of the Left (Modern Universities and Colleges).


      SIDE NOTE:

      Speaking of political correctness, remember how in 2012 the Macquarie Dictionary conveniently broadened the definition of misogyny in order to support Gillard’s speech?
      => http://www.smh.com.au/national/misogyny-definition-to-change-after-gillard-speech-20121016-27q22.html

      Well, the same editor (Sue Butler) and her Left-leaning cohorts (Yeah, a committee) continue their Feminist corruption of the dictionary by making the Word of the Year (2014): mansplain
      => http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/books/macquarie-dictionary-words-of-the-year-mansplain-and-share-plate-20150206-137il8.html

      And you can tell these ivory tower academic activists are completely out of touch with the people; when people decide on share plate as theirs.

      Note the disconnect:
      The former is politically motivated and decided by a committee (collective thinkers), while the latter is motivated by the current culture and decided by the people.

          Bigoted feminist “misandryists” with their ignorance laced hatred against Old White Men, those same Old White Men and their truly admirable women partners who built the technologically advanced Australia that allows those same “misandryists” to use the advanced technology of modern electronic communications to express their bigotry to all and sundry and to publicly slander those same Old White Men.

          Who can give full voice to their misandry under the protection of a freedom of speech that was fought for and made the law of the land by those same Old White Men.

          Who can give full public voice to their misandry where unlike so many other societies, they can do so without a flogging or a savage punishment because those Old White Men fought for and gave equal rights and an equal standing and an equal respect to women both legally and morally and did so before most other nations of the World.

          Those same feminist misandryists can openly slander those Old White Men under the laws those Old White Men created, many of whom fought and died in large numbers for a future that the misandryists would be free and could live a life of leisure and ease free of foreign domination.

          Those Old White Men and their equally strong women built this land, a land that gives misandryists the unparalleled freedom to express their ignorance and hatred.

          And a land created by those Old White Men where the media can freely publish the ignorance, bigotry and imbecility of the misandryists in full measure for all the world to see

              They gun after other women who don’t publicly submit to the Feminist movement. Like the Communist Party, you must publicly declare your vagina alliegance to the movement and to the party.

              If you don’t, you will be considered a traitor of their cause.

              They expressly target successful women because they need to portray to women that all females cannot succeed without Feminism.

              If you dare speak out against their narrative, you will be bullied into a public apology. See that actress (Kaley Cuoco) from that TV show, The Big Bang Theory, as the most recent example of this scenario.

              The modern Feminist movement’s biggest threat are women who stand on their own feet and publicly declare it without backing down. Simply because such examples show other women they don’t need Feminism.

    Satire! There is hope for us yet.

    The one thing that the rabid, sky-is-falling, vaporous, lovey’s can’t stand is satire, and people laughing at them. They are so seriously serious, about being serious. That is where argument from a self-appointed authority, comes from. No real knowledge is required, only a belief that if you think something is true, then it becomes true.

    If you think that you totally understand the way the world works, in all of its intricate and beautiful complexity, when others are still questioning, then that is merely proof of your superiority.

    From that position, it is obvious that all who question your wisdom, are only demonstrating how inferior they are, thus raising your status relative to them. And, of course worth is related to status, and worth can be expressed in terms of money.

    The younger members of society are starting to see through the scam. The first tranche tried to jump on the bus as well, but were thirty years too late, and had to be content with trolling.

    It seems that the current generation have thought about the future that the leftist lovey’s offer, and don’t want a bar of it. I do hope that I am right.

        “Stolen” for my blog page on P.C..

        There’s a more serious quote from Dr. Theodore Dalrymple on that page:

        Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better.

        When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

        I’ve emphacised what seems to be relevant to this discussion and another on Joanne’s blog.

      I hope you’re right too. But from the looks of it a lot more than satire will be required. If I read things correctly Tony Abbott is coming unglued and what glimmer of hope he constituted for Australia is about to plunge back into the darkness of carbon madness.

      Barack Obama continues to ignore his job description, his oath of office, the Constitution and the laws of the United States and does as he damned well pleases like a dictator, thumbing his nose at anyone who doesn’t want to go along with him. And those who have the power of the purse which might reign in some of his lawlessness are afraid to take the necessary steps.

      The UK is in a quagmire way over their heads and can no longer even see what they’re doing to themselves, much less muster up the grit to change course.

      And sitting above it all like the conductor on his platform with his baton in hand we have the UN, orchestrating the whole thing with a gleeful smile — we have won, we have won, we have won.

      I’m thinking maybe satire is all that’s left to us. We’re like the band playing valiantly on the deck of the Titanic as it sinks ever faster beneath the waves, helpless to stop it and desperately putting on a brave face as we go under.

      What is the matter with us? The human race is capable of better than this. Never mind misogyny and sexism, our problem is stupidity.

    It’s Groundhog Day for the 97% climate doomsday believers …

    SMH:
    Climate Council co-founder Tim Flannery said the research strengthened the case for immediate action on climate change.

    “Australians are already feeling the impact of climate change making Australia hotter,” he said.

    Carbon emissions must be reduced rapidly and deeply if the worst of extreme heat in the second half of the century is to be avoided.”
    ~ ~ ~

    Wait! What?

    Is there anything he (Flannery) does that isn’t environmentally sound?

    SMH – ”Bless me father, for I have sinned,” he says. ”It’s been 45 years since my last confession:

    I probably eat too much meat and fly too much.

    But I enjoy the protein … when you do weights, you need the protein.”

    UPDATE:
    ABC, 8 Feb 2015:

    “In a statement, a spokesman for Environment Minister Greg Hunt said the report drew on research conducted and published by the Australian Government.”

      I notice that Flannery is still making appeals to authority, in regard to being one of the “co-founders” of the now defunct Climate Council.

      Those folks who have not been keeping up, might be fooled into thinking that his opinion still has some relevance.

      I was watching an episode of Neil Oliver’s Coast Australia a few days ago (Episode 4), Flannery was in it talking about the Margaret River area and why it is excellent for wine growing – I don’t recall his exact words, but he said it was due to the the region’s long term stable climate. I thought Flannery had been telling us that the climate was warming dangerously everywhere (particularly in WA) but he has found one place where there has been no climate change. How odd.

    Want to see overt institutionalised anti-male policy? Take a job in the bastion of PC that is the civil service. Our department has a stipulated quota target for women in higher level positions. Males are therefore overlooked for promotion in favour of the correct type of candidate. This is done under the banner of EEO. You think your prospects are improved if you speak out against this?

    People outside the civil service would be stunned at how they bend over backwards for certain types of employees. Needless to say, many take full advantage of the system and have an over-sized sense of entitlement.

        Does the overt institutionalised anti-male policy also apply to the armed forces, I wonder?

        It certainly does in the U.S. military. They’ll put a guilt trip on you for even thinking women shouldn’t be represented in the ranks in proportion to their presence in the population at large (slightly more than 50%).

        Unfortunately having mixed men and women on ships, for example, has created rather vexing discipline problems.

        On the other hand, some women have become excellent pilots and have performed that role in exemplary fashion. Just as it is with the men, success in any role depends on the person, not the gender.

        My problem is with women in combat. And if anyone thinks this is sexism then so be it. But to me a man is someone who wants to protect women, not put them in harm’s way.

        But there’s another problem. I first saw it when fire departments were forced to lower their physical standards to admit women to the ranks. Every firefighter I’ve known has had the same single complaint — “I can’t count on a woman to be strong enough to carry me out of trouble if I’m injured and trapped in a burning building.” And that same problem exists in a combat situation.

        You decide.

        I rest my case.

          Interestingly enough women in the armed forces can perform well in many roles. Direct confrontational roles though are a major issue though.

          When I went through recruit training women had a higher physical failure rate, generally knees and backs from packs. Their packs were already specially designed compared to the standard. One of the Corporals of the platoon I was in there was issued a ‘Alice Pack’ as we called them to help with his back problems and he himself swore they were a massive improvement.

          Despite this and heavily reduced physical workloads and testing requirements still more failed than the male groups due to medical discharge. In this I was checking out some research on incidence of injuries in female athletes that seemed to be linked to joints becoming more ‘relaxed’ around a certain time every month which seemed to lead to an increase in injury in sports such as (field or real) hockey that does put stress on knees.

          It does not matter what political correctness says it does not equal biomechanics etc

            Here in the states the “equal rights” thing has gone so far as to assert that women have the right to die for their country just like men.

            Unfortunately, no one has the right to die for their country regardless of gender. We do not send anyone into harm’s way expecting them to die. We train them to fight, survive, fight again and again and then finally come home safe and sound. We realize that some will die in combat and even in training in some cases. But we don’t grant anyone the right to die, only the right to take the chance of death that is normal to any fight. And if anyone shows any lack of competence or ability to survive, we don’t knowingly send them into danger.

            The navy’s very first carrier qualified Tomcat pilot crashed on approach to the flight deck and was killed. This video shows it happening. And this explains what happened in simple terms.

            I have to believe that the Navy was a little bit too proud of its first carrier qualified female pilot to pay close attention to what her skill level really was. The xplanation shows her bad judgment in not initiating a go-around while she was still far enough out to pull it off without trouble. Then she compounded the problem by trying a known dangerous maneuver to get out of trouble. By then it may have been too late. But if she was overshooting the touchdown point the procedure would be to apply power straight ahead and as soon as she had the engines spooled up, initiate a climb to safety.

            Political correctness can kill.

        I read a report from some equal rights government group that had something like:

        ‘We support the employment of minority groups, we employ 76% women!’

        Technically they could twist stats to show how women are a minority, in many government departments etc there are strong representation of men in those roles. This led to some quota systems as mentioned earlier as well as bonus systems for departments to employ certain minorities.

        Women, despite being the majority in the real world are claimed to be the minority so gain preferential treatment. This isn’t a huge issue if you have a large number of applicants for a position and thus ensured of a high chance of being able to fulfil the role….. but a good example would be the ALP (Australian Labor Party) where women made up under 10%, quoted as low as 2% at times and had a requirement of 34% representation of women in Parliament or at least running for seats. This may have helped lead to trash like Gillard gaining as much power as she ended up with since you had such a small selection of aspirants to fill a large number of positions. (this doesn’t mean the male component of the ALP is all that much better, nor in reality the Liberals sadly enough).

    Don’t forget to be constantly on your guard for the new peril of Western Civilisation – MICRO AGGRESSION!

    Micro Aggression is either the concept that people, despite their best intensions, still manage to insult those around them on a daily basis by doing things such as holding the door open (hidden implication that you are not able to hold your own doors), making a comment that a person looks nice today (hidden implication that they look bad on other days) or wishing a Merry Christmas to someone who may not be nominally Christian, OR, a desperate and self centred scream for personal attention from people who studying liberal arts.

    Sadly, whatever it actually is, many people believe it is a Real Thing(tm) and that steps must be made to combat it.

    Current cure suggested by many people in possession of ‘A Life’ is for victims to add a spoonful of cement to their morning coffee.
