Over the past several years, I’ve watched several cancers grow within the left and it’s strange to watch. I don’t even know where to begin. Let’s just jump right in.
How many of us have seen intellectuals criticizing different forms of bigotry, misogyny, and intolerance within mainstream religions and then a mob of regressive leftists turn back on them and claim that no, THEY are the bigots. People stand up for women’s rights, gay rights, and free speech and are told they are racist and intolerant of others beliefs. It’s so bizarre.
Or how about the language police? Turn on MSNBC and you’ll see this clown, Melissa Harris-Perry. Apparently, if you claim someone is a hard worker you’re now racist, offensive, and “problematic”. The only real hard workers are the poor single mothers struggling to provide for their children, or the black slaves way back when picking cotton in the fields. They knew hard work! The rest of us? We haven’t a clue and we can’t even use that word anymore. She also feels Star-Wars is racist. Why is Darth Vader, the evil villain, black huh? Was George Lucas trying to imply that blacks are evil? Watch it for yourself. Her sort of ilk live to stir up racism and want to pick fights. They’re vile.
Over half of young people within the left don’t believe in free speech anymore. You might say something that offends somebody. It’s all about safe spaces, coddling everyone, and making them feel at home. Many of you probably don’t follow this stuff, but it’s festering everywhere these days. If you watch this next video from Yale’s campus you see a mob of young people surrounding their chancellor, swearing at him, yelling at him, and telling him to resign. And what for? It’s hard to believe, but if you look into it, this was due to Halloween costumes. These students thought their chancellor should prohibit certain costumes because they thought they weren’t culturally respectful or whatever, and the chancellor basically said everyone should chill out and enjoy the holiday. This next video is what ensued.
I can hear you guys thinking, yeah Jason, those are just a cooky minority, and we always have those. They’re just a loud, vocal minority, nothing more. We can safely ignore them. Really? Let’s look at what these young people are watching on MTV.
To my generation, when Halloween comes around, you just try to be creative and have a good time. Whatever your costume, it’s not a big deal. If girls want to put on a sexy Halloween costume, hey, lucky us right? However, the left is becoming just like the prudish religious people I remember seeing growing up. As many of you know, my father is a pastor, and growing up he was an evangelist. We would travel to all these different churches and I remember one country church in particular where the women weren’t allowed to wear make-up and they all had to wear long dresses down to the floor. You wouldn’t want to give in to lust and sexual temptation! It amuses me to see that feminists are now bringing that sexual repression in a new form; dressing sexy is degrading and women can’t let themselves be sexually objectified. They’re so controlling and judgmental.
Listen to Laci go on about racist costumes, culturally insensitive costumes, sexual objectification, and on and on. She blows it all out of proportion, thinking way too much about it all. With these young people, just going out on Halloween night with your friends has become a social landmine field. You can’t wear that sombrero, it might offend Mexican immigrants. You can’t wear that sexy nurse costume, don’t you respect yourself? You can’t wear that samurai armor, don’t you understand there’s an entire culture and ideology behind that? This is the sort of petty drivel they work themselves up over. They suck the fun and life out of everything.
You’ve probably heard about how comedians will no longer come on college campuses because young people today are too politically correct. You can’t even make jokes. They get offended by almost everything. It’s not about your intent, or anything you’ve actually done. These leftists don’t care about that. It’s all about adhering to all of their social taboos. Certain words are just bad because they’re bad. A black comedian like Chris Rock can’t even make jokes about the culture he grew up in or the things he’s experienced because of uptight, entitled brats with no sense of humor. These campuses could never handle a stand up routine like this video below.
If you want to see how insane it’s getting within universities, check out this one. A transgender woman who was attending an all women’s university changed her sex to a man. Note that it’s very important that we get her sexual orientation right! He now identifies himself as “masculine of center gender queer.” My gosh, what a mouthful. I mean honestly, come on, is sexual identity THAT complicated? He was apparently running for some position as a diversity president of some organization on campus. This caused outrage and all the women screamed out that they wouldn’t tolerate a MAN as their president. Men are the very symbol of the patriarchy and oppression! So they tried appointing several black women for the position, but they didn’t want it and dropped out of the race. So this erupted into protests all over campus and all these women were telling the other students not to vote at all.
Speaking of which, I’ve never understood the left’s obsession with sexual orientation. Pansexual, demisexual, asexual, bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, they’re obsessed with sexual orientation. If you go on a leftist sight like Huffington Post, almost everyday you’ll see some celebrity coming out as some sexual orientation. Miley Cyrus comes out as pansexual! Really? Great! Why is this mainstream news? Don’t get me wrong, I’m very live and let live. I’m not going to interfere with your sex life and frankly, I could care less about it. There’s way more important things to be thinking about.
But the left doesn’t think so. Sexual identity is their big thing. They even try to create a new language around it all. Someone has decided that all these different sexual orientations need their own pronouns now, and those who aren’t using them are insensitive and disrespectful. I don’t agree with everything said in this next video, but take note of all this diversity and inclusion language stuff.
Honestly, I don’t know how these weaklings will ever function in reality. A debate took place at Brown university between a feminist and a libertarian. The feminist women were terrified that this speaker would “invalidate people’s experiences” and so they went to set up a safe space, a special room filled with coloring books, cookies, Play-Doh, calming music, puppies, and blankets. I’m not joking. That’s how infantile and pathetic this is all getting. Any of these poor women who might be troubled or triggered during the debate were to run off into this special room, their safe space, where they’d be hugged and coddled and told it’ll all be ok. I have way too much respect for women to believe that any of you ladies are that weak and can’t even handle a dissenting opinion. This is all because a speaker came in arguing a different position from theirs.
All of this is absolute lunacy. I can’t help but wonder where all this madness came from. The world wasn’t this crazy just a five or ten years ago. This stupidity just exploded onto the scene and now it’s everywhere. My friends and I have talked about this and think that this stuff existed in the past, but these vocal minorities have been very effective with social media, and their madness is seeping into the mainstream, like toxic sludge. Most people are not as crazy as those in the videos above, but you can see young people taking in these ideas and it’s sad.
I don’t really know how all of this happened, but I heard one young woman on Youtube talk about her experience. She started off on Tumbler, sharing her art with friends. Then someone sent her information about the gender pay-gap and some inspiring empowerment quotes from Beyonce. That got her subscribed to these feminist feeds and then she started absorbing all of these sorts of ideas. She started to become a full on social justice warrior until she found some Youtube channels of skeptics pointing out the flaws in all these ideas. Then she thought, my god, what was I being sucked into? That’s my best guess as to how these sorts of people are born and why so many young people are drawn to this garbage. They’re young, idealistic, and naive. This indoctrination of stupidity is happening everyday, as young teenagers sit in their rooms, alone on their tablets and computers, reading Tumblr and Facebook.
