Liberals Discover New Sacred Victim Group: The Ugly

The cultural Marxist campaign to turn America against itself requires that ever more people be established as sacred victims deserving of special privileges at the expense of demonized normal people. Blacks, Muslims, perverts, who is next? Why not ugly people?

A drumbeat of research over the past decades has found that attractive people earn more than their average-looking peers, are more likely to be given loans by banks, and are less likely to be convicted by a jury. Voters prefer better-looking candidates; students prefer better-looking professors, while teachers prefer better-looking students. …

The galloping injustice of “lookism” has not escaped psychologists, economists, sociologists, and legal scholars. Stanford law professor Deborah L. Rhode’s 2010 book, “The Beauty Bias,” lamented “the injustice of appearance in life and law,” while University of Texas, Austin economist Daniel Hamermesh’s 2011 “Beauty Pays,” recently out in paperback, traced the concrete benefits of attractiveness, including a $230,000 lifetime earnings advantage over the unattractive.

Hold tight to your wallets, non-ugly people. Reparations could be on the way. Already the masterminds are hard at work thinking of ways to exploit this concept by playing off ugly people against everyone else.

Some have proposed legal remedies including designating unattractive people as a protected class, creating affirmative action programs for the homely, or compensating disfigured but otherwise healthy people in personal-injury courts. Others have suggested using technology to help fight the bias, through methods like blind interviews that take attraction out of job selection. There’s promising evidence from psychology that good old-fashioned consciousness-raising has a role to play, too.

“Consciousness-raising” is liberalese for propaganda. If our moonbat rulers could convince whole generations that it is bad to be white, why couldn’t they convince us that it’s bad to be attractive?

As with all things liberal, coercion will be entailed. Consider these laws to be precursors:

The state of Michigan banned height and weight discrimination in 1977, and six municipalities, including Washington, D.C., and San Francisco, have followed suit with similar statutes.

This is good news for dwarves interested in pursuing careers in the NBA, but very bad news for anyone who would like to live in a free country, in which employers would hire whomever they deem fit, rather than whomever liberal bureauweenies have granted the supreme privilege of being designated “oppressed.”

Hamermesh has proposed “affirmative-action programs for the ugly,” or extending the Americans with Disabilities Act to include the unattractive.

Insane? Obviously. But once you open the door a crack to insanity, you can be sure the liberals shoving from the other side will soon have it open wide.

The law no longer allows airlines to cater to the preferences of male business travelers with all-female steward staff, for example, so why is looks-based discrimination acceptable just because customers may prefer it?

It would have been better to resist at the beginning, when sanctimonious tyrants first proclaimed their right to impose their deranged whims on employers under the guise of “civil rights.”

The alleged oppression of the unattractive opens a new area of research for the social engineers who are redesigning us in accordance with their utopian ideals.

Research on how to prime ourselves to overcome this bias is still in its infancy, but [Connor Principe, an assistant professor of psychology at Pacific University] says there are promising hints from the more robust research on racism that bad cognitive habits can be broken. A paper published last year in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology showed how researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison devised a “habit-breaking intervention” that included teaching subjects to recognize their own responses and adopting the stigmatized person’s perspective. The intervention drastically reduced subjects’ racial biases, even months later.

These subconscious “racial biases” serve to keep people who live in urban environments alive by causing them to avoid dangerous situations. But the masterminds have decided this self-defense mechanism must be eradicated. A preference for beauty presumably serves its purposes too; however, our politically correct overlords know much better than Mother Nature

Here’s a question worthy of some research: Why would liberals want to brainwash and/or coerce people into no longer preferring beauty to ugliness? The same question can be applied to the arts. The answer could be the key to unlock the mysteries of the moral horror that is liberalism.

    Q: Where is the biggest whore house in the country?
    A: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    It’s the place where, if you’ve got enough money, and you lean far enough to the Left, you can have yourself a ball. And don’t worry about America’s school children and their tax-paying parents who are on the outside looking in. They’re not allowed in the “peoples house”, so they won’t bother you.

    The movie “Gattaca” released in 1997 is a film that deal with the subject of genetic engineering. For ten buck, watch it on Amazon and you’ll understand where the left wing tyrants want to take the world.

    How does this jibe with the success of progs like Hillary “What difference does it make?” Clinton, Helen “Jews go back to Poland.” Thomas, Chuck “Democrats don’t relate to middle-class people.” Schumer, Michelle “America is just downright mean.” Obama, Janet “I’m not fancy.” Reno, Henry “Pig Man” Waxman, and myriad other hideous progs?

  6. the last laugh is the best says:

    This should be a big payoff for libtards and their mongoloid zombie low information followers.

  7. Softly Bob says:

    Ugly? At long last, a minority group that I can identify with!

  8. WOOHOO! Finally. It’s my turn. Bite me, Attractive people!!

  9. Outlaw Scumfuck says:

    Stay fugly and proud!

  10. Jacquelyn Morrow says:

    Who gets to decide what constitutes “ugly”? Because I find many of our “celebrities” extremely ugly!

  11. chronos the wonder pig says:

    compensation for the ugly?? I’ll be rich!!!

  12. SNuss says:

    Rush Limbaugh had it right (again):

    “I have long told you, for example, Undeniable Truth of Life No. 24, written back in 1987: Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.”

    It has just been expanded to ALL Leftists now.

  13. Tchhht!!! says:

    Holy smokes the Democrats will never have to raise campaign funds again!!!

  14. whotothewhat says:

    Well since Hillary will most likely be the lefts choice for POTUS demonizing ugly bodes well for her.

  15. Martin Vorbrodt says:

    Well I’m screwed… I’m white, 6’4″, 185lbs, 33-yo one sexy stud!

  16. JamesJ says:

    Pure genius! You could win a national election courting the “ugly” vote.

  17. Gary Benson says:

    The primary goal of cultural marxism is to balkanize and create victim politics, while at the same time ignoring the majority. The majority has NO voice whatsoever, while the “victimized groups” have bullhorns provided by the Jewish owned/run media. It’s all about making sure that there is absolutely no cohesion at all in the society, hence feminism and abortion and open borders and gay rights and affirmative action and the banishment of Christianity, etc., all designed to destroy the white Christian people. It’s happening in every western nation by the way. Thank Horace Kallen and the rest of his tribe.

  18. Jimbo says:

    Well, this explains the liberal love of Henry ‘Batman’ Waxman.

  19. AK BeagleOne says:

    The leftists need to gain victim status for ugly people because, well, have you seen them? Leftists are hideous, inside and out. They think more people will listen to their insane tirades if they’re even more protected than they are now. Surely we’ll do what they want if we just feel bad enough for their plight.

    If only there was a way to stop the scourge of ugliness. Maybe the government should decide who gets to reproduce – you know, to prevent ugliness and junk.

  20. Spider says:

    So now the ugly are victims? Have the Demoncrats taken a look at some of the broken down hags on the Left? Hitlary, Feinstien, Pelosi, etc. If they’re victims, they’re victims of Mother Nature. And, she ain’t no feminist.

  21. Leonard Jones says:

    Decades ago Limbaugh did a spoof on “Uglo-Americans.”
    Has anyone noticed the truly ugly are usually liberal?
    The fugly lesbians from the last two democrat admin-
    istrations alone could fill the casts of a thousand
    horror movies!

  22. TED says:

    Ugly!? Of course, it fits 99% of them!

  23. rinardman says:

    What’s left unsaid: if you’re conservative and ugly…you’re still screwed.

    = = = = = =

    Short version: you just answered your own question. To see differences is to make judgments. Beauty. Ugliness. Horror.

    Humans are hard-wired to discern differences, to see patterns, and to decide that some things are preferable to other things. People who look at “what-is” and make judgments and choices based upon Reality are inoculated against The Narrative that Progressives use to control those Low-Information-Voter types. (The old “Who you gonna believe? Charming wonderful me, or your own Lying Eyes?” shtick.)

    The long version: Liberals want to “eliminate discrimination”. Look up that word, “discriminate”. (Sample below:)

    transitive verb
    1
    a : to mark or perceive the distinguishing or peculiar features of
    b : distinguish, differentiate
    2
    : to distinguish by discerning or exposing differences; especially : to distinguish from another like object

    intransitive verb
    1
    a : to make a distinction
    b : to use good judgment

    Synonyms: differentiate, distinguish, draw a distinction, tell the difference, tell apart.

    An important part of what the word means, (and mostly glossed-over in the above definitions) involves ASSIGNING A VALUE TO the differences observed. To “discriminate” is to judge, to compare similar things, and ultimately choose one over another based on its perceived merit or value. (Example: “Discriminating diners prefer to eat at Le Monde instead of McDonald’s.”)

    Liberals/ Progressives don’t WANT you to make value judgments. Haven’t you noticed they treat Islam as the moral equivalent of Judaism and Christianity? They downplay the virtues of Western Civilization and celebrate the “cultural heritage” of savages. When it comes to immigrants, they prefer tribalism (self-segregation by class, or ethnicity/ nationality, or religion) over integration/ assimilation into the host society.

    These people believe that THEY should get to define all the values you’ll ever need in life. Don’t you dare start thinking in terms of “good/evil”, “right/wrong”, “beautiful/ugly”, “practical/foolish”, “crazy/sane” and so forth. THEY are going to tell you what is right, good, proper, legal, and wise — but they can’t make it stick if you keep trying to “discriminate” in the fullest sense of that word.

    Orwell has already told us about the power of language to shape thought. You must not be allowed the freedom to decide that importing hundreds-of-thousands of Muslims, or legalizing millions of Mexican illegals, is “double-plus-ungood”. War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength. And we are all supposed to be good little sheeple, dutifully following our Masters’ dictates.

  25. Tim from TK says:

    “The law no longer allows airlines to cater to the preferences of male business travelers with all-female steward staff…”

    Alas, yet another reason why flying on US carriers is more painful than foreign carriers.

    “The state of Michigan banned height and weight discrimination in 1977, and six municipalities, including Washington, D.C., and San Francisco, have followed suit with similar statutes.” Excellent – the eternal illogic of progressive ideology – we can’t discriminate against fat folks, but we must control what people eat lest they become fat.
