Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Finally Finds Some Racism

“It sounds almost so silly to say.” But Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Future of the Democrat Party, is a silly person, so she says it anyway. In the midst of Wuhan virus panic, people are allegedly avoiding Chinese restaurants — because of “straight up racism.”

Moonbats were bound to find racism against someone other than whites if they looked long enough.

But wait, if people are avoiding Chinese restaurants because they are racist, why don’t they always avoid them? Is racism a symptom of the virus? If so, no wonder the media has gotten so hysterical about it.

Intersectionality Debunked

Progressives have no reasonable arguments, so they attempt to make those who resist them appear reprehensible by attacking them on the grounds of their race, sex, sexuality, religion, et cetera. That is, they do exactly what they accuse their opponents of doing.

Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro pull back the curtain to reveal the hypocrisy, malevolence, foolishness, and inanity of intersectional moonbat ideology, aka Cultural Marxism:

Dissecting Cultural Marxism

Political correctness, aka Cultural Marxism, is a strategy for attacking society in hopes of destroying it so that a very different social order can be imposed in its place. Douglas Murray and John Anderson explain how it works:

How Goldman Sachs Imposes Cultural Marxism on Other Companies

The malignant discrimination inherent in identity politics is becoming inescapable. As with attacks on the Second Amendment, the private sector is as much a threat to freedom as Big Government. For example, Goldman Sachs demands that other companies select board members based on their membership in politically preferred identity groups:

Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon told CNBC on Thursday his investment bank will help companies go public only if they have at least one “diverse” board member.

Only one allegedly oppressed board member would be a token. No worries; Goldman Sachs will soon demand that companies add more.

“Starting on July 1st in the U.S. and Europe, we’re not going to take a company public unless there’s at least one diverse board candidate, with a focus on women,” Solomon said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “And we’re going to move towards 2021 requesting two,” he added.

Why stop there? They could signal even more virtue by declaring that no board members can be white men unless they are Muslim or homosexual. According to trendy ESG ideology, that would surely increase the return on investment.

The result of the growing discrimination against white men is that potential board members will be denied positions in favor of less qualified candidates who check the right boxes on the Cultural Marxist scorecard. Either that, or boards will be packed with dummy members who are there only to meet the quota. Neither favors efficiency.

Fatphobia Is Thoughtcrime

Cultural Marxism requires that ever more “marginalized” groups be discovered or created to be arrayed against the shrinking minority of normal people. Even people who are overweight now qualify as aggrieved. Consequently, Jillian Michaels of the weight loss TV show The Biggest Loser is a thought criminal for failing to celebrate the body positivity of an obese exhibitionist named Lizzo.

Lest you too fall into thoughtcrime, be mindful that exerting the effort to keep yourself fit makes you guilty of “thin privilege.” According to liberal ideology, achieving anything through effort or discipline is wrong, because it undermines equity and leads to privilege. You can only deserve what the government has forcibly confiscated from someone else and bestowed upon you in honor of your status as a victim.

Now that the obese have joined the exalted ranks of the marginalized, normal chairs are regarded as a microaggression against them. As we draw closer to utopia, such chairs will be phased out, along with physical fitness and everything else liberal social engineers regard as problematic.

Mark Dice sounds the alarm on fatphobic thoughtcrime:

Moonbattery Eats Its Own: J.K. Rowling

Moonbat children’s author J.K. Rowling is getting canceled by the outrage mob she helped create with her political correctness. Paul Joseph Watson can’t stop laughing at the poetic justice:

Being an icon of wokeness like J.K. Rowling is not enough to spare you from the guillotine if you cannot refrain from insisting that 2 + 2 = 4. Once Jacobinism spirals out of control, no one is safe, as the architect of the Reign of Terror Maximilien Robespierre could have told you on his way to the guillotine.

Feminists take note: Cultural Marxism is a caste system. Your caste clearly falls below the LGBT caste.

It’s “Sickening and Disgusting” to Think It’s Okay to Be White

Rebellious types, tired of being bullied, demonized, and treated as second-class citizens on account of their race, have enraged liberal establishmentarians by posting stickers reading, “It’s okay to be white.” This is a Class A thought crime, because the power of the Cultural Marxist ruling class rests on an ideology that requires whites to despise themselves for the accomplishments of their kind.

In light of someone posting the forbidden message on lampposts and drainpipes throughout Perth, Scotland over the weekend, the BBC expresses the mandatory attitude toward the concept that it’s okay to be white with the usual tactic of quoting those we are supposed to agree with.

John Swinney, Scotland’s deputy first minister, calls the notion “atrocious.” Perth Against Racism proclaims that it makes people feel unsafe — a menacing response, when coming from leftists.

An anonymous citizen who I presume probably exists is quoted regarding the stickers:

“It’s sickening and disgusting to know that people think like this.”

No one is quoted asking the obvious question, “Why is it not okay to be white?”

No worries, moonbats; the police are on the case:

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Although no complaint has been made to police regarding these posters, they have been brought to our attention and officers are currently looking into the matter.”

Someone could be in for a stay in George Orwell’s Room 101 if apprehended. Coincidentally, Room 101 “was named after a conference room at the BBC where Orwell would have to sit through tortuously boring meetings.”

Iowa State University Imposes “Cultural Humility”

Campus indoctrination goes beyond instruction on which identity groups must be revered. If you are a member of the core population that created and still constitutes the main populace of American, you must be trained to hate yourself, your kind, and your heritage. Iowa State University calls this “cultural humility.” Students, educrats, and instructors alike are subjected to the brainwashing.

Via The College Fix:

In response to [radical] student demands, last month the school’s administration released a statement outlining the significant diversity initiatives the school will be implementing. Those include “cultural competency and cultural humility training before the start of spring semester 2020″ for the school’s president, senior vice presidents, deans and other high-ranking administrators.

As well, next semester, the school’s Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching will “conduct annual training for faculty in each academic department on the importance of, and approaches to, creating an inclusive classroom environment.”

“Inclusive” is Orwellian for rigidly exclusive of anything not in full compliance with the lunatic fringe of leftist ideology.

The school’s hiring and tenure processes will also be subject to “diversity, equity and inclusion training.”

You don’t want white male heterosexuals getting hired or promoted if you can help it. That would not be consistent with cultural humility.

As for the students,

Further, starting next semester, “everyone who lives in a residence hall will be required to take annual online diversity, equity, and inclusion training,” according to the university.

School officials were almost uniformly silent on the content of the proposed trainings.

The public is not ready for the extreme moonbattery inculcated on campus just yet. But if the universities churn out enough indoctrinated zombies, it soon will be.

Campus police will also be subjected to brainwashing, so that they know who they can expect to obey the law and who must be treated with special deference, under the rubric of “racial intelligence training.”

Surprisingly, a leftist student demand was no acceded to. Students Against Racism displayed its open-minded tolerance by demanding that the Students for Trump club be shut down. That won’t happen for now, so long as SfT follows the Student Organization Recognition policy, because “We cannot punish individuals for having bigoted or hateful thoughts.” Even if a club supporting the POTUS is not officially banned, no one is left wondering whose side the educrats are on.

More Woke Astronomy

As noted earlier, political correctness is a totalitarian ideology whose adherents demand that absolutely everything be subordinated to it, including astrophysics. Progressives have their work cut out for them, but they are progressing.

The Heising-Simons Foundation launched a postdoctoral fellowship to develop talent in planetary astronomy. Only two of the first 12 awardees were female. According to the prevailing ideology, this could not possibly be because men are more likely to excel in this field. It could only be a consequence of patriarchal oppression.

Science Magazine reports:

That low ratio sent shock waves through the small family charity, which is based in Los Altos, California. “We realized we needed to self-reflect before we went any further,” says the foundation’s Cyndi Atherton.

The established solution to imaginary discrimination is to impose real discrimination. For that, Joyce Yen was brought in from the University of Washington.

Atherton and Yen spent 1 year revamping the process by which young scientists applied and were chosen for the 3-year, $375,000 fellowships. …

Atherton also hired Yen to lead the panels rather than using a scientist from the discipline. As facilitator, her role was to watch out for comments that might bias the process by straying from the stated criteria for selection.

Let’s not get distracted with irrelevant science stuff when the purpose of astrophysics is to destroy the patriarchy.

The changes had the desired effect: Four of the six fellows in this year’s class are women.

Success! But… how many of the fellows are persons of politically preferred pigmentation? How many are transgender? How many are undocumented immigrants? The work of social justice warriors is never finished.

As for the Final Frontier, it looks like the Russians and Chinese will have to be the pioneers. Americans have other priorities.

Student Group Wants Limit on Materials by White Authors

The Notre Dame student group “End Hate at ND” demands fewer reading materials produced by white scholars so as to “eliminate the violence of only privileging white scholarship.” In the funhouse world of academia, “violence” can be used to mean, “failure to marginalize hated Caucasians.”

The College Fix reports:

The group describes itself as “an initiative for organizing civil action against racist, xenophobic, sexist, trans-exclusionary, & queer-phobic structures at Notre Dame.”

Other demands include more “diversity” indoctrination and an end to the proscription against spending the night in opposite sex dorms, on the grounds that this rule enforces “white, cis-heteronormative hegemony.”

As for the demand labeled “Decolonize Academia,” the student activists argue “cultural competence is key in building empathy for marginalized folks.”

“Cultural competence” means purifying the curriculum of our own culture, in the hope that one day America can be replaced by a utopia consisting of swarthy savages engaging in perverted sex acts on the floors of their dung huts.

End Hate at ND wants to advance toward this goal by evaluating all course materials through the lens of Cultural Marxism, and dictating that at least half of readings not be produced by male Caucasians. If the goal is to rescind civilization, they are on the right track.

Now It Is Racist Not to Like Indian Food

Every opinion is now interpreted through the lens of Cultural Marxism. That means we are no longer permitted to dislike Indian food, because that would be racist.

Via the BBC:

“Indian food is terrible and we pretend it isn’t,” said international affairs professor Tom Nichols. …

The remark led to a wider discussion of the immigrant experience and how many in the US have experienced racism in relation to food. …

[Screeching moonbats] pointed out how smell and flavour have long been prevalent in racist comments towards minorities, and accused Mr Nichols of intolerance. …

[S]ome foodies dismissed the row outright saying simply: “I see someone on twitter has racist views on Indian food. Well, more for me then.”

Good thing I love Mexican food. That means I am a good person. Unless it means I am a bad person for committing the sin of cultural appropriation.

Let’s hope they discover a Third World country where the favorite cuisine is dried monkey turds. It would be hilarious to watch self-righteous moonbats munch on them and pretend to enjoy it. But then, if they can swallow their own ideology, maybe they would like the taste.

Now We Can All Achieve Oppression

True equity is possible at last. Soon, all of us will be able to bask in oppression, thanks to the University and College Union.

Via Breitbart:

“UCU has a long history (from predecessor unions) of enabling members to self-identify whether that is being black, disabled, LGBT+ or women [sic],” [boasts] a six-page position statement from the union, which “represents over 120,000 academics, lecturers, trainers, instructors, researchers, managers, administrators, computer staff, librarians and postgraduates in universities, colleges, prisons, adult education and training organisations across the UK.”

The reference to “enabling members to self-identify whether that is being black, disabled, LGBT+ or women” comes up repeatedly.

All we need to do is expand this from academia to society as a whole. Then, everyone can be oppressed.

When everyone is oppressed, no one is oppressed. Then we can go back to taking responsibility for our own success and failure, instead of advancing at the expense of the more deserving by belligerently wallowing in sniveling self-pity. Everyone wins.

Words “Boomer” and “Sooner” Now Offensive

As we approach the ultimate goal of limiting permissible vocabulary to inarticulate whimpers of submission, deletions from the Newspeak Dictionary come fast and furious. The words “boomer” and “sooner” must now be removed because they have been declared offensive to politically sacred American Indians.

From the University of Oklahoma’s OU Daily:

The Undergraduate Student Congress saw legislation authorizing a name change for the Sooner Freshman Council, among other things, in its Nov. 12 meeting.

Student Government Association President Adran Gibbs, who authored the act mandating a name change for the group, said the words “boomer” and “sooner” are inherently offensive to the Native American community.

Gibbs says that OU students are merely “visitors on this land,” which he evidently regards as belonging not to those who settled it, but to Indians. It appears that Indians have the authority to declare which words we are and are not allowed to say on their land.

Native American Taylor Broadbent was called upon to explain why Oklahomans can’t say “boomer” or “sooner” anymore.

Broadbent said the words were originally used to describe settlers in the Land Run of 1889, which facilitated the theft of tribal land.

Presumably the word “settler” will be forbidden soon on the same basis.

They would cut to the chase and just ban anything remotely connected with Western Civilization so as to return the hemisphere to the hand-to-mouth pre-Columbian era of human sacrifice, cannibalism, and savagery, but progressives like to do things progressively.

The act passed with a roll-call vote of 19-8-7.

Yet Taylor Broadbent still isn’t happy. He pouted:

“I was saddened by the amount of ‘noes’ and ‘abstains’ in the voting process.”

This is a classic example of the tactic known as “crybullying.” It is far more effective than the raping, pillaging, and murdering of settlers that took place in days gone by.

Virgin Atlantic’s Scarlet Lady Replaced by Black Woman

The primary purpose of advertising is to advance political correctness; selling products and services is secondary. How else do you explain the preponderance of blacks in television, online, and print advertising, in a country that is only 13% black? The percentage in Britain is even lower at 3.3%, due to it being, last I knew, a European country. Yet they are replacing Virgin Atlantic’s Scarlet Lady logo with a black woman, “to better reflect modern Britain.”

Artist Ken White is not happy:

He created the ‘Scarlet Lady’ after being asked to produce something similar to the art painted on World War Two planes and that of Peruvian pin-up artist [Alberto] Vargas. …

Mr White said: ‘It was a design which I thought worked and was changed to include the British flag, but then I read that they were changing it to a gay person and a black woman.

‘I don’t understand what was wrong with it in the first place; it was an icon and people knew the airline for it.’

If it was an icon, it was part of British culture. Therefore, it must be erased, to clear the slate for the globalist utopia.

A black woman does not “reflect modern Britain” yet, but will in the future, if demographic trends continue. Subtle brainwashing is used to prevent people from rebelling against their nation being erased. Whether there will still be airlines when Europe’s post-European future has been imposed is doubtful.

The Scarlet Lady, another casualty of moonbattery.
