Amnesty International Accused of Unwokeness

You might think nothing could be woker than Amnesty International, an organization that draws virtual signaling donations from liberal elitists by advancing leftist politics in the name of “human rights.” Yet we read this from the Guardian, flagship publication of Britain’s liberal establishment:

Amnesty International has a culture of white privilege with incidents of overt racism including senior staff using the N-word and micro-aggressive behaviour such as the touching of black colleagues’ hair, according to an internal review into its secretariat.

By now we know enough to treat assertions that the forbidden N-word has been uttered with skepticism. But who can deny microaggressions, which include all behavior that sacred BIPOCs choose to be offended by?

It came as eight current and former employees of Amnesty International UK (AIUK) described their own experiences of racial discrimination and issued a statement calling on senior figures to stand down.

One of the whistleblowers, Katherine Odukoya, said: “We joined Amnesty hoping to campaign against human rights abuses but were instead let down through realising that the organisation actually helped perpetuate them.”

Yes, touching the hair of a Person of Color qualifies as a human rights abuse. Senior figures’ heads must roll.

Rather than attempt to defend their organization, representatives of AIUK crawl on their knees, coughing up abject apologies. Given the current climate, this does not indicate that they did anything wrong. To respond in any other way to accusations of political incorrectness would be politically incorrect.

Accusers shriek that someone used the “P-word.” What P stands for is unclear, considering how many words have been deleted from the Newspeak Dictionary. Given the British context, I’m guessing they mean “Paki,” which is short for “Pakistani colonist” and apparently now forbidden.

The internal review at Amnesty’s international secretariat was “commissioned following the Black Lives Matter movement.” That means if there are any white people to be found, they will be found guilty.

Alleged violations of wokeness include:

• Systemic bias including the capability of black staff being questioned consistently and without justification, and minority ethnic staff feeling disempowered and sidelined on projects.

This is why blacks must always be put in charge of projects, regardless of who is most qualified. Otherwise, they will feel disempowered and sidelined.

• A lack of awareness or sensitivity to religious practices resulting in problematic comments and behaviour.

The religion in question must be Islam, the only religion championed by moonbats. Raising your eyebrow if someone drops to the floor to praise Allah in the middle of a meeting would qualify as human rights abuse.

Amnesty International had encouraged these accusations by proclaiming itself guilty of whiteness:

In June last year the international board of Amnesty International sent an email to staff addressing the Black Lives Matter movement and racism. Citing the killing of George Floyd, it said racism was encoded into the “very organisational model” of the human rights body, which had been shaped by the “colonial power dynamics and borders” that were “fresh” at the time of its founding in 1961.

A violent Criminal of Color with Covid and a heart condition dying of a massive fentanyl overdose presents an ideal opportunity for any organization created by white people to denounce itself for “colonial power dynamics.”

Perfect political correctness is an ideal that can never be achieved so long as white people still exist. Any organization largely comprised of white people must be canceled.

Lena Dunham, Please Put On Your Clothes

Wondering what motor-mouthed moonbat Lena Dunham has been up to lately? Two things: packing on pounds and posing for photographs with nowhere near enough clothes on.

The New York Post reports:

Lena Dunham has become one of the most vocal advocates of body positivity. From her role on “Girls” to her very own Instagram page, Dunham has put herself on display all while challenging naysayers and harsh critics. So when she announced the launch of a new plus-size clothing line, the connection was clear. Take a look at the body-positive photos that drew her to her new venture.

Dunham’s fellow progressives may want to click the link and get an eyeful. Others are forewarned that what has been seen cannot be unseen.

Body positivity is as pernicious as any other aspect of political correctness. You are not your weight. Like psychosexual dysfunction, obesity is a health problem to be confronted, not an identity to be seized upon. Obesity is a major risk factor for a long list of serious and even deadly ailments, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease. It also makes you more likely to die from ChiCom virus.

Caturday Thought Crime Dwarfs Less Serious Crises

Don’t get distracted by the country being under full-scale invasion, the maniacs in charge debasing the currency by wasting $trillions we don’t have, or a senile corruptocrat canceling the Constitution by executive decree. We have serious problems regarding the way some people name their cats:

Can any apology, no matter how abject, really suffice?

Let’s hope this lady can claim Woman of Color status; that way, she may be able to salvage her career, even after letting humor slip through.

What Was Your Woke Breaking Point?

Only two months into the Biden’s Handlers Administration, and already the moonbattery is so insufferable that we have a self-described liberal asking, “What was your woke breaking point?

The replies defending leftist violence and woke cancel culture can be even more enlightening. For example,

De Blasio Wants Police to Scare the Politically Incorrect

Meanwhile, as New York City disintegrates into anarchy, Mayor Bill de Blasio is doing his part to exploit the racially irrelevant shootings in Atlanta by deploying speech police:

Bill de Blasio said the NYPD could visit those accused of racism or discrimination, “even if something is not a criminal case.” The exchange happened near the end of the “media availability” event when a Washington Post reporter questioned de Blasio about his response to reports of racism, specifically toward Asian Americans over the course of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The idea that “white supremacists” are targeting Asians is the liberal establishment media’s false narrative du jour. In reality, if there has been a rise in violence against Asians, it was caused not by Trump saying “China virus,” but by the collapse of law and order in the face of Black Lives Matter. That’s why most of the perpetrators are black.

Never mind reality. Let’s return to the pseudo-world fabricated by Democrat politicians with help from the media. Yaps de Blasio:

“And my message to all New Yorkers and particularly to Asian American New Yorkers at this point, is please report what you see. We need it. We need to know what’s happening. We need to know if you’ve been treated wrongly. If you’ve been a victim of discrimination, if you have been a victim of a hate crime, if you’ve been a victim of violence based on who you are, we need to know about [it] immediately.”

What if it’s not actually a crime, but just some statement that could be construed as insensitive? Call the cops anyway, says de Blasio:

“One of the things officers are trained to do is to give warnings. If someone has done something wrong, but not rising to a criminal level, it’s perfectly appropriate for an NYPD officer to talk to them to say that was not appropriate. … I assure you if an NYPD officer calls you or shows up at your door to ask about something that you did, that makes people think twice. And we need that.”

That is, we need the police to intimidate people over accusations of political incorrectness.

De Blasio boasts that his administration has been creating “a new policy to widen the definition of what would qualify as hate crimes.” It is already illegal to say “illegal alien” in New York City. Soon the cops may do more than put a scare in you if a neighbor rats you out for calling COVID-19 the China virus.

Asians make more money than whites in this country. They are systematically discriminated against through Affirmative Action. Keeping them in the Democrat cultural Marxist coalition won’t be easy. That’s why the media/Democrats reacted to the Atlanta shootings with such a hysterical barrage of lies.

Of course, authoritarians like de Blasio will also welcome any opportunity to restrict free speech.

Physics Term “Quantum Supremacy” Struck From Newspeak Dictionary

The cancer started in social science departments, where no one was learning anything useful anyway. Unfortunately, social justice ideology has metastasized to every corner of academe — even real science:

In an op-ed, titled, “Physicists Need to Be More Careful with How They Name Things” for the Scientific American, St. Anselm College physics professor Ian Durham, University of Bristol math professor Karoline Wiesner, and freelance journalist Daniel Garisto call for doing away with the physics term “quantum supremacy” in an anti-racist measure.

The concept of white supremacy is so horrific to moonbats that the word “supremacy” must be banned by association. Revise your copy of the Newspeak Dictionary accordingly.

The popular term, coined in 2012 by quantum physicist John Preskill, refers to quantum computers outperforming classical ones. It has nothing to do with racism, which the authors of the op-ed even acknowledge, but say that it is “uncomfortably reminiscent” of “white supremacy.”

Everything in academia is about political correctness; that is to say, it is about hatred of white men.

The authors add that while abolishing the term “quantum supremacy” would not in itself diversify science, it is a small step toward making the scientific community “less white and male.”

It doesn’t matter what discoveries are made or even whether they are made. All that matters is that if there are any discoveries, they are made by members of approved identity groups.

The corrupted liberal arts have established supremacy over the sciences.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Features Cross-Dressing Mixed Race Guy

Horny teenagers of all ages used to look forward to the annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. But like every other nook and cranny of American culture, this has been infiltrated, subverted, and ruined by left-wing social engineers.

“Progress” must always progress. That means the moonbats at SI have to keep upping the ante on wokeness. The current state of the art in political correctness entails featuring a guy who calls himself Leyna Bloom. In addition to being transsexual, he is not only nonwhite but mixed race:

The New York Times crows triumphantly that he is the first transgender woman of color to appear in the swimsuit issue.

What historic first will next year’s swimsuit issue offer? I’m guessing a transgender person of color who happens to be otherly abled due to conspicuous birth defects.

If anyone still buys this, it won’t be to look at the pictures, but to virtue signal political correctness. Nothing is for sheer enjoyment in a country under the thumb of a totalitarian ideology.

Kew Gardens Labels Racist Plants

Warning labels are needed not only on racist movies like Dumbo and racist TV shows like The Muppet Show. They are also needed for racist plants:

Kew Gardens has vowed to show visitors how plants on display played a part in British colonialism and the slave trade.

The famous botanic gardens in London will change display boards for plants such as sugar cane – previously harvested by slaves – to highlight their ‘imperial legacy’.

Kew director Richard Deverell said the gardens – a major attraction for UK and overseas visitors before the pandemic – would ‘move quickly to decolonise’ collections.

To “decolonize” means to purge of all traces of Western Civilization, which leftists consider to be politically unclean.

Summit News pushes back:

This is yet another capitulation to woke mobs who are trying to subvert the United Kingdom and make its population ashamed of their heritage and birthright, despite the fact that Britain was the first major country in the world to end slavery.

Brits like William Wilberforce literally risked their lives to travel to the colonies and free slaves.

However, there is no point arguing history with a placard on a plant. The only point is that whichever way you turn, you will be confronted by wokeness.

Under totalitarianism, absolutely everything is engulfed by the oligarchy’s chosen ideology. Even botany.

Biden Says Indians Are Taking Over USA

Joe Biden famously warned that in Delaware, “You cannot go to a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.” As titular POTUS, he continues to sound the alarm regarding encroachments from southern Asia:

Biden on Thursday made one of his most head-turning comments since being sworn in when he told an Indian American aerospace engineer that immigrants from the subcontinent are “taking over” the US.

“It’s amazing. Indian-descent Americans are taking over the country — you, my vice president, my speechwriter,” Biden told Swati Mohan, NASA’s guidance and controls operations lead for the Mars Perseverance rover landing.

He wasn’t complaining; in the context of Biden’s ideology, Indians taking over America would be a good thing, because they are not Caucasian. However, when anyone other than Biden makes a remark like this, there is hell to pay. His cognitive decline defends him from criticism almost as effectively as Obama’s parentage.

Jeep Commanded to Change Name of Cherokee

Looks like Jeep could be forced to make a name change:

Jeep has sold SUVs under the Cherokee name for decades, with the Jeep Grand Cherokee currently the brand’s bestselling model and the Jeep Cherokee its third bestseller. The original Jeep Cherokee was first introduced in 1974.

Like most things that have been around long enough to have become traditional, the Cherokee brand has been targeted for erasure.

“[I]t’s time for both corporations and team sports to retire the use of Native American names, images and mascots from their products, team jerseys and sports in general,” Chuck Hoskin Jr., principal chief of the Cherokee Nation, told Car and Driver.

It is clearly not an insult to have vehicles and sports teams named after you. But apparently some are willing to dispense with this honor in exchange for the thrilling opportunity to boss others around.

The Washington Redskins are now the “Washington Football Team.” The Cleveland Indians banished Chief Wahoo and will be changing their name. In Atlanta, the Tomahawk Chop is on the chopping block. Even the Indian maiden on the packaging of Land O’Lakes butter has been canceled.

Soon there will be nothing left to remind us of Indians. People will hardly know of their existence. An important aspect of American heritage will have been obliterated.

We’ll see how long it takes Jeep to cave to the demand — unless a donation of some kind can make it go away.

Big Tech Robotic Moonbat Overlords Censor Chess Videos

Thanks to our reliance on social media, Big Tech’s robotic moonbat overlords determine what we can say to each other. This is bad news for people who are into chess.

Croatian chess player Antonio Radic (aka Agadmator) had his popular chess videos blocked by Google’s YouTube due to unspecified “harmful and dangerous” content.

Computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon suspect Radic’s discussion of ‘black vs. white’ with a grandmaster accidentally triggered YouTube’s AI filters.

Running simulations with software trained to detect hate speech, they found more than 80 percent of chess videos flagged for hate speech lacked any—but did include terms like ‘black,’ ‘white,’ ‘attack’ and ‘threat.’

They must have a liberal definition of hate speech. My guess would be that closer to 100% of chess videos lack any hate speech. But as the definition of hate speech expands, it incorporates ever more harmless conversation.

As has been previously determined, chess itself is racist because white goes first.

Wokeness Is Job Qualification for Chemistry Instructor

Political correctness is now the primary qualification for any job — even chemistry instructor:

Portland Community College is hiring a “culturally responsive” chemistry instructor who has the “ability” to develop a “culturally responsive curriculum.”

According to the job posting, the position is meant to “diversify the college’s faculty and advance our efforts towards achieving equitable student success.”

Equitable student success would mean the same outcome for all students, all variation in their aptitude and effort having been leveled in the name of moonbattery. Literally, it would mean giving all students the same grade. Since C is supposed to be average, give everyone a C and your job as an instructor is finished. Any knowledge of chemistry that the teacher might be able to impart to students is superfluous.

But applicants do have to hold the correct politics if they want to get the job:

[T]he ideal candidate is supposed to understand “structural privileges/inequalities and how they impact educational practices; empowers learners to analyze and overcome the effect of institutional bias/inequality.”

The posting also requests that those who apply understand the differences “between prejudice, discrimination, and racism and how they operate at the interpersonal, intergroup, and institutional levels.”

Maybe a degree in sociology isn’t such a waste of time after all. You might need one to get a job as a chemistry instructor.

You can see why public schools focus on leftist indoctrination rather than teaching students to read. They are preparing the next generation for the job market.

Aboriginal Politician Oppressed in New Zealand

Here’s some surprising news. New Zealand’s parliament has failed to accommodate a sacred Person of Oppressedness who rejects the colonial oppression of business attire.

Via Breitbart:

A Maori politician who claims a necktie symbolises “a colonial noose” was ejected from New Zealand’s Parliament when he defied custom and entered without one.

The tieless Rawiri Waititi was not allowed to ask questions in the debating chamber.

Waititi, 40, who became an MP for the first time in the election last October, was wearing a taonga, a Maori greenstone pendant instead, Reuters reports.

Waititi says a taonga is a tie in his culture. It would be colonial oppression to expect him to comply with the norms of New Zealand culture.

“It’s not about ties, it’s about cultural identity, mate,” Waititi said as he exited the chamber, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

It is about cultural identity, all right. More specifically, it is about obliterating social cohesion through multicultural madness.

At least he didn’t show up in a loin cloth. Waititi saw fit to culturally appropriate shirt, jacket, cowboy hat, metrosexual eyeglasses, and presumably pants.

But he doesn’t like wearing ties. Does anyone?
