People ask McDonalds to bring back Szechuan Sauce, Racial Obsession Syndrome soon follows

The Left is redefining petty, petulant, pathetic, and likely many other words that start with the letter “P”

In fact, rolling out Szechuan sauce with the original Mulan was itself problematic, though critics were less aware, then, of how the film collapsed millennia of complex Chinese history and culture into a flat, oversimplified pastiche. Maybe they just cared less. Either way, it’s not surprising that the country’s elaborate cuisine and varied flavor profiles were likewise distilled into that catch-all sweet-spicy-sour Chinese condiment — the aforementioned Szechuan sauce — and served up alongside all-American chicken McNuggets.

Clamoring for the simultaneous release of Szechuan sauce and a film inspired by a sixth-century Chinese folktale is the same as asking for Mickey D’s to serve up a rich Hollandaise or Béarnaise in honor of the quintessentially French Beauty and the Beast. Delicious as that situation might be, it has nothing to do with the roots of the legend it purports to celebrate. French cuisine is lauded for its geographical nuances (Normandy gave birth to Hollandaise, while Béarnaise is Parisian; three other French “mother sauces” exist), and reducing it into a single flavor profile would be viewed as disrespectful by home cooks and connoisseurs alike. Because it is.

The same goes for thinking Szechuan sauce could represent all of China — Sichuan (the traditional spelling) is just one of the country’s 34 provinces — but it’s obvious that this instance of cultural and culinary reductionism doesn’t seem to hold as much weight. It’s not hard to imagine why.

Oh good freaking grief, it is sauce! Nothing more! No one, and no culture is being reduced. How many variants of BBQ sauce are there, and BBQ rubs for that matter? Should Southerners examine each ingredient in each rub or sauce and then claim some imagined offense? Maybe we should defend the cultural purity of our BBQ, cornbread, fried chicken, or collard green recipes and preparation? Of course not because again, there are many different ways these cultural dishes are prepared.

In other words, relax, it will all be OK, after all it is only sauce

One thing I note about this piece by Yasmin Tayag stands out in its hypocrisy. Read this paragraph

While we’ve come a long way since Mulan, we unfortunately still live in an age where Scarlett Johansson is our best Japanese actress and Asian men are beat up on airplanes for no reason other than gross ignorance. There’s no telling whether McDonald’s will actually bring Szechuan sauce back, but the last thing Asian-Americans need is a sauce to obscure the diversity of their cultures in the same shade of faceless, nationless, Western-approved brown.

Odd, she is right in noting the diversity of different Asian people languages, cultures, etc. Yet she uses the Asian-American label, which gives an impression that all Asians are the same. Remember Yasmin, consistency matters. But, of course, Liberalism is an ideology of convenience, so consistency, is, well only useful when it is convenient to whatever failed narrative is being pushed. 

Whiny students demand safe spaces University President tells them to grow up

Outbreak of Snowflake Syndrome in 3,2,1……

Students at Northern Arizona University are demanding their president step down because she refused to endorse safe spaces at a recent forum.

During the forum, one student asked President Rita Cheng how she could support safe spaces when she doesn’t “take action in situations of injustice,” citing an incident the previous week “when we had the preacher on campus and he was promoting hate speech against marginalized students.”

Cheng corrected the student, explaining that she doesn’t support safe spaces at all, according to KPNX.

“As a university professor, I’m not sure I have any support at all for safe space,” Cheng asserted. “I think that you as a student have to develop the skills to be successful in this world and that we need to provide you with the opportunity for discourse and debate and dialogue and academic inquiry, and I’m not sure that that is correlated with the notion of safe space as I’ve seen that.”

BOOM! Great response from Cheng. In short, she is telling them that not everyone in the world will agree with them or their views. This is what every university head should be doing

Your MUST READ Post of the Day

Ever wonder just how far the Left could take what I am calling yet another Liberal Malady Identity Obsession Disorder? This far!

(Daily Caller)  The professor, Teresa Blankmeyer Burke of the philosophy and religion faculty at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., espoused her theory of “cultural genocide” earlier this month at Impact Ethics, a website covering bioethical issues.

“Members of the signing Deaf community argue that research which aims to eliminate or cure deafness is a form of cultural genocide,” Burke explains. “The argument goes like this: the use of gene therapy to cure hereditary deafness would result in smaller numbers of deaf children. This, in turn, would reduce the critical mass of signing Deaf people needed for a flourishing community, ultimately resulting in the demise of the community.”

It can’t get worse than that, can it?

“This bias of Hearing culture can be seen in the normative claim that it is better to be a member of the dominant, mainstream Hearing cultural community than to be a member of the non-dominant Deaf cultural community,” Burke writes.

Suffering from hereditary deafness “confers on deaf children a Deaf way of being in the world” with “advantages” that “are not always obvious to members of the Hearing community.”

Withholding medical treatment that might allow children to hear? hey if an adult wants to remain deaf, that is their business. But children? What of their choice? Or will the Left force identity upon them? What is the next stop on the Leftist road to Hell? Objecting to cures for blindness? Paralysis? How far will they go in their moral depravity? Maybe they will start diagnosing the “identity” of children, then force that on the child? Seems pretty sick, but consider how far out from reality the Left is. And given their penchant for desiring control and their hatred of Individualism…………

So now wearing patriotic clothing causes Offendeditis

Let me get his straight. High school students should not wear red, white and blue to their team’s game because refugees, who are being helped by this country, might get offended?

The Valley High School-Des Moines North State Tournament game was one for the ages. “They played hard,” said Morgan Wheat, an assistant coach at Des Moines North. “We had a chance to win at the end. Hats off to Valley, they made more plays.”

Following the matchup, some fans were more concerned with what was happening in the crowd.  Wheat said, “Everything just blows up after the game and I’m still hearing about it this morning.”

Valley students had chosen to wear red, white and blue instead of their school colors black and orange.  “Any normal person, any educated person can look at that and think what the hell are these kids thinking,” said Wheat.

OK, let me to get this straight. Having an American-themed night is now “abnormal” and something only the “uneducated” would do? To believe the idiocy Wheat is spewing we would have to believe that America, and patriotic clothing is somehow inherently offensive to anyone who is “educated”. Perhaps Wheat has been educated beyond his hat size? And, we would also have to assume that because several players from Wheat’s team come from refugee families that they would be bitter and offended that America, the country that has allowed them in, would actually allow Americans to wear patriotic themed clothing. Mr. Wheat it is you who needs to be asked what the Hell you are thinking.

Perhaps Americans are supposed to stop loving this nation because an ungrateful refugee, and yes, any refugee offended by U.S.A. themed clothing being worn by Americans, in America is deeply ungrateful. Maybe we, as a nation should beg for forgiveness and vow only to wear clothing that will not offend the delicate egos of people our nation has reached out to help escape oppression?

News Flash! Sense of humor is now a hate crime or something

Alternate title, Offendeditis outbreak at American University, Feminists and Snowflakes hardest hit

The College Fix reported:

‘Anti-feminism’ posters at American University investigated as a ‘hate crime’

Law enforcement personnel are searching for the person who hung up “anti-feminism” posters around American University’s campus late Tuesday evening.

The posters parody the recent International Women’s Day as “International Nags [sic] Day,” and include the meme “Stop talking and bitching woman on March 8 and make me a sandwich.”

Rather remarkably, as Fox-5 reports, police are investigating this “vandalism” as a hate crime.

A crime alert was issued to the A.U. community which included photos of the suspect:

Here is the super duper extra offensive poster that some people think should be criminalized. Brace yourself, and make sure no children, or small animals can see the horror….

Oh no, how will our republic survive this? At worst this is in bad taste. To me it is funny, partly because it has some possibly inappropriate elements to it. But also because it is true. Feminism has devolved into angry, irrational hyperbole being screamed by perpetually pissed off “victims”. These women who go heavy into Feminism see discrimination everywhere. Hell they cannot order lunch without seeing the “Patriarchy” somewhere in the experience. But, I must say, I would have really liked these posters to be put up as well

A quick note here, I only put the photo of a hot woman drinking beer because men will like it, and Feminists hate anything that men enjoy.

Democrat makes sexist comment about Kellyanne Conway, Nancy Pelosi refuses to condemn him

It must be all that Botox, or maybe Selective Outrage Syndrome?

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Sunday refused to condemn Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond’s sexist attack on White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

Richmond, referring to a picture of Conway kneeling on the Oval Office couch while taking pictures for the presidents of historically black colleges, said the White House staffer “looked familiar” in that position–a sexually charged joke that even Chelsea Clinton called “despicable.” Pelosi, however, refused to condemn the attack when pressed by Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Leader Pelosi, the joke was sexist, it was disgusting. Shouldn’t the congressman apologize to Kellyanne Conway? And, honestly, where is the Democratic Party in expressing outrage about this?” Tapper asked.

“I wasn’t at the dinner. I’m just finding out about this. The fact is, I’m still in sort of a state of ‘What is going on here?’ that the person who occupies the White House is a person who was on that Hollywood video, that said the crude things he says about women,” Pelosi dodged. “You all are criticizing Cedric for something he said in the course of the evening — and he maybe should be criticized for that, I just don’t know the particulars.

She sounds like a babbling idiot. Which is to say she sounds like herself. The fact is Conservative women are not protected by the Left because the Left despises women who refuse to “know their place”. Pelosi is part of that misogynist mindset frankly.
