The rot of political correctness
Washington Times, by Tammy Bruce

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 4/19/2017 8:19:46 AM

In today’s academy, truth is an invention. Expecting people to show up on time is racist. Censorship is good. Silencing opposing viewpoints imperative. Violence to enforce safety is natural. For the last 25 years, under the guise of “political correctness,” we’ve been watching the inexplicable flow into our culture. The idiotic demands of political correctness in the 1980s, ironically relying on the decency of the American people for their acquiescence, was just the prep course, an amuse bouche before the main course of creating social chaos and destruction. It sounds dramatic, and it is, and it’s also the only way

I don´t know if "rot" is the word I would use I prefer the tyranny of politically correctness.

FTA "Last year, we watched political correctness on campus jump with abandon into its perfected state of fascism. Within a year, we moved from weeping students demanding safe spaces to direct, organized violence to stop speakers who do not pay allegiance to the left’s status quo."

To me that violence is tyranny of the left.

In the 1960s, liberals were against government and anyone in authority (´´The Man´´) Now, liberals want more government. Bigger, more intrusive government. Government that dominates our lives.

Why? I think it is because of various frustrations with their lives. They can´t resolve those frustrations, so they want the government to step in on their behalf- Make people do and behave as THEY wish them to. Punish those who believe differently. I think that´s why we see all the emotional outbursts from the many wackos on TV. Emotion emanating from their frustrations and inability to cope.

The sad thing is that they are told they are, indeed victims of society and that political correctness is the proper way to restrain those who disagree with them.

Once you let women vote you run the risk of establishing a "Marriage" where one is provided a home and sustenance but wherein one is subjected to a variety of potential abuses...loss of freedom, rule by fiat, vile and pernicious intrusion into one´s personal affairs.....all the pathologies found in an abusive relationship.

I love women but our proud Republic has been transformed into a vision that our ´Founding Mothers´ might have preferred.

We all grew up as children in a system where mom decided everything and made sure we ´shared´ and played nice. Nurseries are and should be socialist.

But it´s no way to run a country.

Please pardon my ´Sexist´ analogy but it is offered more in sorrow than in anger.

Let´s stop calling it "political correctness" - it is self-censorship to avoid the bullying crowd. It spelled the end of free speech, the elimination thereof has proceeded to mob violence and threats to those with an "unacceptable" message or thought.

This censorship is also being applied retroactively, not unlike other authoritarians who believed destroying the non-compliant past by everything from book/scroll burnings to temple desecration and discrediting the thinkers was necessary for their ultimate, eternal survival.

Yes, PC is blatant censorship. Why would anyone use censorship? Censorship is the last refuge of anyone who can not win an argument on its merit. Obviously, the leftist has no valid argument except in a dictatorial state, getting the State to do his bidding. Nothing leftists say makes sense because they are always speaking from the extremist position.

Adolph Hitler used a famous quite similar tactical argument that is studied (or once was) in university rhetoric classes. The argument went something like this:

A wolf and a rat can not breed (a position that would seem obvious to anyone as true).

The offspring would be more than the rat and less than the wolf. (Huh? There can be NO offspring from such an impossible union!)

Then the substitution;

The Teutonic Perfect , like the wolf, would be greatly diminished as a species (Teutonics are now separate supermen/wolf-like ´species´)and if they were to breed with rat-like Jews. (Jews are rats is the mental imagery wished for), they would destroy the Perfect Teutonic man!.

The argument is utterly that of an uneducated, ignorant speaker who only wants to inflame one people against another. Incredibly, the ludicrous argument was enthusiastically accepted by the masses of people. Hitler was associating Teutonic Germans with a powerful animal- Just like a Sports team mentality - The Chicago Bears, vs the Jerusalem Rats! Yea Team!. The logic and validity of the argument did not matter what-so-ever. It worked on people´s self worth (for both Germans and Jews)!

The leftists use these same mental tactics. Few have called them on it.

DT has, though! And others have seen, it stops the lefties cold and are joining in.

And that fully explains Trump Derangement Syndrome.

A government failure in Charlottesville
Washington Examiner, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 8/15/2017 7:58:16     Post Reply
Saturday´s ugly events in Charlottesville culminated in a neo-Nazi protestor plowing his car into a crowd of his adversaries. He allegedly killed Heather Heyer, a young woman who had been excercising her right to free speech. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is rightly giving a high priority to the investigation, and President Trump has finally gotten around to issuing a proper condemnation of the white nationalists who brought their hate-fest to Charlottesville. Yet beyond this, Saturday´s events represent a serious failure of government. Neither the death of Heyer nor the general mayhem were inevitable. They could have been prevented if authorities there

There is nothing "right" about racism and hate. It’s a learned disease, and the best antidote is unity. This weekend’s events involving white supremacist groups are as disturbing and disgusting as they are heartbreaking. The attack was a stark reminder of the darkness of hate. We must come together, as we have before, to confront the issues that chip away at the very foundation of who we are and what we stand for as a country. Unfortunately, the people of South Carolina know this type of domestic terrorism all too well. Our response to the events in Charlottesville, Va., should mirror

Judge Usurps Congressional Spending
Power in Obamacare Cases

If you are one of those hidebound individuals who believe that the distribution of taxpayer funds from the U.S. Treasury is a congressional prerogative clearly delineated in Article I of the Constitution, Judge Thomas C. Wheeler of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims has some bad news for you. Wheeler has handed down summary judgments ordering the government to pay two separate insurers a total of $266 million that Congress has declined to appropriate. He awarded Moda Health $214 million in February and, two weeks ago, he awarded $52 million to Molina Healthcare pursuant to Obamacare’s unfunded “risk corridor” program.

The Democratic Party Has a Great Opportunity
In 2018. It Might Still Blow It.
Daily Beast, by Gideon Resnick    Original Article

Democrats have been given an enviable political landscape, with an opposition president at a historically low approval rating and scandal besetting his White House. But they risk potentially blowing it due to a lack of central leadership, diffuse organizational structures and disputes over tactics and issues. That’s the fear that some top officials harbor as they gear up for the 2018 elections: that the party has yet to learn its lessons from the 2016 cycle; that a horde of newly organized political groups are drawing money away from party infrastructure; and that a lack of a singular leader has complicated the

In the middle of the Justice Department’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information during the 2016 campaign, Phoenix ABC morning anchor Christopher Sign broke the bombshell news that Attorney General Loretta Lynch held a clandestine meeting with former President Bill Clinton. Obviously a secret conversation between Clinton’s husband and the attorney general overseeing her investigation raised alarms among many Americans. But as was so frequently the case from the years 2008-2016, major media reporters were less than enthusiastic in the face of a potential major Obama administration scandal. Newly released emails showed Washington Post reporter Matt Zapotosky doggedly pursued the

The Democrats´ foolish family feud

The Democratic Party is tearing itself apart, with the forever war between the leftist Bernie Sanders and centrist Hillary Clinton wings of the party erupting once again into open think-piece warfare over the last week. Bodies are strewn everywhere from The New Republic to The Washington Monthly. Left-on-left Twitter looks like Day 110 of The Battle of the Somme. But while the struggle for the party´s ideological soul is important, it is a massive distraction from the critical work of containing the menace of the Trump administration. Messy internecine fighting is also unnecessary. Democrats are being pulled inexorably to the left

Would a fair society have exactly the same percentage of men and women, of whites and blacks and Hispanics and Asians, in every line of work and occupational category? If your answer is yes, and you think that any divergence from these percentages must necessarily result from oppression, then you qualify for a job at Google. If not, forget about it. In your own life, you may have observed that few occupational categories — certainly not that of Google engineers — have such gender and ethnic percentages. You probably guessed that this results in part from people with different characteristics tending to

‘We’re after leakers, not journalists,” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Sunday. Cancel the panic over a supposed Team Trump media crackdown. Yes, the Justice Department is “ramping up” efforts to ID and prosecute leakers, as Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Friday. After all, Justice in the past six months has “received nearly as many criminal referrals involving unauthorized disclosures of classified information” as in the prior three years combined.That prompted hysteria like the Politico headline “Jeff Sessions’ Attack on the Media Is Worse Than You Think.” But Rosenstein put the kibosh on that: “Reporters who publish information are not committing a

Obamacare Lives But Your

While GOP quislings like Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander cobble together a plan to save the health care “reform” law they promised to repeal, and the Democrats demand a new stream of taxpayer money for insurance company bailouts, Obamacare is destroying the foundation of our medical delivery system. During 2016, twenty-one hospitals were forced to close. During the first two months of 2017, another five went under. The facilities that you count on for major medical care are closing at a rate of two per month, and the pace of hospital closures has been steadily accelerating since Obamacare was launched.

In Abusing NSA Intelligence, Did Obama

´Unmasking´ Scandal: Day by day, the scandal of the Obama administration´s abuse of domestic intelligence gathered by the National Security Agency grows. Forget the phony Russia-Trump collusion charges — the Obama White House looks increasingly to have committed a crime by using U.S. intelligence for political purposes. The NSA´s insatiable gathering of data and conversations on Americans make it a potentially highly dangerous enemy of Americans´ freedoms. Who would want to have a federal government spy shop that knows almost everything you do in public, on the phone, by email, or by computer? That´s why the super-secret NSA, which is much bigger

In his July 6 speech in Warsaw, President Trump pledged America to the “defense of civilization itself.” Here in simple terms is the emergence of a Trump doctrine: “The bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are.” By referring to the spiritual foundations of Western civilization, the president echoes our collective civilized humanity: The laws and culture that undergird western civilization. During World War II, Winston Churchill declared that we were fighting to defend “Christian civilization.” When this statement was criticized by detractors as narrowly ethnographic, he defended his position by noting what separates our civilization from

President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace.

A crowd of ignorant protesters pulled down a bronze Confederate statue that stood before a county government building in Durham, North Carolina — the angry national backlash to the Charlottesville brouhaha over the Robert E. Lee monument. This is not how civil societies operate. And yet this is what the left has brought, and now cheers. What’s next — burning books with offensive content? Burning books written by those who used to own slaves? At the very least, museums will have to go. The problem with revising history based on a standard of “feeling offensive” — as this anti-Confederate craze is rooted — is that someone,
