Dumbing Down our Vocabulary

All I can say about this is Good Freaking Grief!

And the liberals, in high-dudgeon, remain intolerant of intolerance, and are determined to pass laws against hateful speech.  Which they have every right to do since they refuse, morally,  to allow disgusting subhuman wingnut bastard haters who hate to use derogatory terms that may harm the esteem of groups these progressive angels — who care! — single out for championing.  To do so would be to allow putrid, conniving, mouth-breathing retards and knuckle-dragging cousin humpers hiding behind their Bibles, their guns,  and their gas-ass teabagging to ruin civil discourse.

Daily Mail, UK:

People living in Seattle can no longer enjoy a brown bag lunch after city bureaucrats banned the term from official use for being racist.

A memo sent out from the Office of Civil Rights also banned the word ‘citizen’, claiming it could lead to people feeling excluded in the multi-cultural city.

The memo went on to offer politically correct alternatives that could be used in official documents and discussions.

Luckily, we’ve got options,’ Elliott Bronstein wrote in the internal memo, according to Fox News. ‘For “citizens”, how about “residents”?’

Mr Bronstein defended the ban on a Seattle radio station, and said that the term ‘brown bag’ had historically been used as a way to determine skin color.

Paper bags had once been used as way to decide if African-Americans had what was considered to be a light enough skin tone to be admitted to certain college teams and houses.

‘For a lot of particularly African-American community members, the phrase brown bag does bring up associations with the past when a brown bag was actually used, I understand, to determine if people’s skin color was light enough to allow admission to an event,’ Mr Bronstein said.

Last week, when Eagles receiver Riley Cooper got in all kinds of  hot water for saying the word Niggers, yes, I said the actual word, it is a word, get over it, I was not surprised to hear Cooper apologize, then grovel for forgiveness for using that word. Fine, in my view he should apologize if he is really sorry. If not, why apologize? I mean what is a phony apology worth? Squat, that is what. And, if any of his teammates, many who are Black, pop him in the mouth for using the word, fine. But, the media firestorm over a word, yes, it is just a word, is appalling. It is the latest signpost letting us know we are now speeding down the Highway to Hypersensitivity at break neck speed. I remember when I was little, my parents taught me the saying “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” Now, of course words can hurt, and yes feelings are important. But we are allowing offending someone to become the single worst anyone can do, and that is very bad for all of us. We are also allowing careers and lives to be ruined over “offensive” language. That is even worse. How soon will we be so afraid of saying anything that our freedom of speech will be useless?

Again, I understand that certain words are hurtful, and I personally avoid such words, but we are increasingly seeing words, yes words, ostracized as if they were bad people. How soon till we start spelling words like parents do in front of their three-year-olds? Sorry, but if a word causes you THAT much pain, that is a YOU problem.

 

Union Thugs Demolish Black Man’s Iconic Lansing, Michigan Hot Dog Cart, Yell Nigger, Uncle Tom

Union Thugs Demolish Clint Tarver’s Iconic Lansing, Michigan Hot Dog Cart [Photo-Donation Link] Update: Thugs Yelled “N*gger Uncle Tom” Update 2: Revenge For Americans For Prosperity Catering Gig (?) Update 3: A Romney Supporter, All We Need To Know – Ironic Surrealism

I support Clint:

Early today[December 11, 2012], Clint Tarver, known as “The Hot Dog Guy” here in Lansing had his business attacked and destroyed by out of line and out of control protesters near the Capitol.

Everyone who has passed the hot dog cart knows what a kind and caring individual Clint is. He never fails to bestow a smile or friendly greeting. In no way [did] he provoke this attack, nor any of the behavior displayed toward him.

Beyond the Cart: The Story of Clint Tarver:

.

Regardless of your position on current legislation, rebuilding Clint’s Hot Dogs is something we can all support. Please give what you can to get this deserving businessman back out there!

Update 2: The plot thickens!

The woman (Lorilea Susanne) who set up the fundraising page for Clint has spoken to his wife. Apparently Clint was hired to provide catering for the Americans For Prosperity tent which was also destroyed by union thugs.

*UPDATE* 11:40am – I have spoken with Linda Lee, Clint’s wife. She says he is absolutely overwhelmed with our support, even more so than by the events of yesterday. I would like to clarify the events, however. Clint hired as a caterer for the AFP tent which was torn down. He was much more concerned about the others, and particularly helped to get the women out of the tent. It was when he returned to gather his equipment that the taunts and racial slurs began. He says the working people did not respect the working man. He was not there to be political; he was just there to serve. This is the Clint we know and love. Please, let’s respect him and leave our political opinions out of this. This is about our support for Clint.

Emphasis hers.

Update 3:

Slate:

Romney’s Saturday started off well. He was the star of the Ingham County Lincoln Day breakfast, an eggs-and-coffee-and-county-commissioner-placards affair in the dining room of a Lansing, Mich., country club.

Before he spoke, Republicans heard “The Star-Spangled Banner” sung by the Old School Fellas, a zoot-suited amateur doo-wop group. “Mitt’s a good, Christian man like I am,” explained Clinton Tarver, wearing the reddest of the zoot suits.
