And by suck, I mean sucks in a sucktacular fashion! Matt has more
Imagine that a five year old is surviving Leukemia, and has had this fatal disease since they were a toddler. Now, also imagine that Make-A-Wish arranged to make the little guy Batman for the day, and get him some recognition. Sounds like a wonderful story, doesn’t it? Well, not to some liberals, who thought it was terribly unfair! Stacy McCain has some more…
Here is the Tweet from a Racially Obsessed Moonbat and Matt’s response, which is dead on target!
I’ve said before that liberals have a rather narrowly defined world view. Thanks to critical theory, AKA, Political Correctness, AKA, Cultural Marxism, liberals subsist on a victim narrative. In their little world, someone is always exploiting or abusing someone else, and even good news is bad news, because someone’s good news created bad news for someone else. So, this little kid got to be Batman, but to make that happen, some little dark skinned kid must have been deprived of something. I know, it’s asinine, but liberals always look stupid when they try and shove any possible story into their victim narrative. But that won’t keep them from trying.
This also qualifies my belief that Liberalism is an ideology for the pessimistic folks in society. Think about it, is there any group that loves them some pity parties more than Liberals?
I love Steak and Shake, great burgers, better than those over rated burgers at In And Out any day, great shakes, great service, but recently there was an outbreaks of Racial Obsession Syndrome and Offendeditis at a Steak and Shake. Chicks on the Right has more
According to this, a Steak ‘n Shake customer complained to the corporate headquarters here in Indianapolis that he was mistreated at a St Charles, MO store location.
You wanna know what happened? His receipt said the words “black guy” on it, presumably because the cashier was using the most obvious physical characteristic as a way to identify him and his meal charges.
And here’s the kicker. The cashier is also black.
So apparently, it’s offensive now for black people to notice when other people are black or to refer to them as black. This is how strict the rules of political correctness have become.
As I have often said, soon we will all be afraid to say anything to anybody. I hope the miscreant who complained is told to grow up and shut up, but the corporate “brainy types” will likely prostrate themselves in a apology orgy. One more thought. The left teaches Blacks that their skin color is EVERYTHING, so why would they get offended when someone notices said color? Maybe we should all get OVER our color?
In a staggering case of affirmative action gone wild, officials in a major U.S. city are actually recruiting minorities to be lifeguards at public pools even if they’re not good swimmers. It’s all in the name of diversity.
You can’t make this stuff up. It’s a real-life story out of Phoenix, the capitol of Arizona and the nation’s sixth-largest city. It has more than 1.4 million residents and, among its official mottos is “value and respect” of diversity. This means “more than gender and race,” according to the city’s official website. It also encompasses “uniqueness and individuality” and embracing differences. “We put this belief into action to provide effective services to our diverse community.”
Evidently officials are willing to compromise those “effective services” at 29 public swimming pools spread throughout the city. To diversify the lifeguard force, Phoenix will spend thousands of dollars to recruit minorities even if they’re not strong swimmers, according to an official quoted in a news report. Blacks, Latinos and Asians who may not necessarily qualify can still get hired, says the city official who adds that “we will work with you in your swimming abilities.”
There’s a good reason the city is hiring lifeguards that can’t swim. Public pools are largely used by Latino and African-American kids, but most of the lifeguards are white and this creates a huge problem. “The kids in the pool are all either Hispanic or black or whatever, and every lifeguard is white and we don’t like that,” says a Phoenix official quoted in the story. She added that “the kids don’t relate; there’s language issues.”
How did it ever come to this? Competitive swimming is a sport dominated by whites. In fact, studies have found that blacks and Hispanics have lower swimming proficiency compared to whites. In Phoenix public pool lifeguards have traditionally come from “more affluent parts of town” where schools have swim teams. That means virtually no minorities, so the city launched this special program to recruit some.
Though this is a local effort in one city, it’s also part of a national trend to boost the minority workforce at whatever cost. Under President Obama we have seen a lot of this at the federal level through a variety of specially-designed government programs that give ethnic minorities special treatment at all federal agencies as well as medical and agricultural fields, among others.
Earlier this year the administration made history by hiring the government’s first “Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity” to mastermind a multi-million-dollar effort that boosts the number of minorities in biomedical research and slashes discrimination in the federal grant process. The effort was initially launched last year after a government-sanctioned study uncovered a “disturbing and disheartening” lack of racial diversity in the field.
Before that the administration created a new office help build a “diverse and inclusive workforce” at all federal agencies and Obama appointed a “Diversity Czar” at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to help advance the goal of greater inclusion and diversity in government programs. Who could forget the race and gender employment quotas required at private financial institutions under Obama’s financial reform measure (known as the Dodd-Frank bill) to overhaul Wall Street? It’s all in the name of diversity.
Pathetic! Who are they trying to appease?
Unbelievable. They are erasing their own heritage. And for what? Do they think they will somehow grow as an organization? Or are the leaders just caving in to political correctness? Frankly, the members should quit, and reform in a new group, or boot the leadership ASAP.
.UPDATE!! The DAR is saying this report is untrue, here is the link
NSDAR is disappointed to learn that false and incorrect information has recently been circulated regarding the 2011 edition of the DAR Ritual and Missal and the use of the name Jesus Christ in prayers and other ceremonial events of the National Society. The purpose of this message is to clarify NSDAR’s position on the matter for anyone who has not previously viewed the blogs written by President General Merry Ann T. Wright.
First, the question was posed by a national media group that if the motto of DAR is God, Home and Country, then “…why is DAR taking out references to God…” in its printed material. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, as currently written, the 113 page Ritual and Missal contains over 300 references to “Almighty God,” “Great God our King” (America hymn), “Our Heavenly Father,” “Heavenly Father,” “God of Hosts,” “God,” “Lord,” “Eternal God,” “Your Holy Spirit,” “Lord your God,” “Gracious Lord,” “Almighty and Everlasting God,” “Gracious Father,” and similar variations.
Second, the allegation has been leveled that Chaplains and others have been told not to pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Again, this is an absolute falsehood. Each Chaplain and other officers are strongly encouraged to create their own prayers into which they may insert the name of Jesus Christ as deemed appropriate for the occasion and the audience. This is what the President General wrote in her blog of April 10, 2012 when questions about the change to the Ritual and Missal first arose:

Here they go again, the perpetually offended, are always finding something inane to get their dander up. Via Lee Stranahan at Big Government
At Ohio’s Sinclair Community College, Elizabeth Verzi, the school’s Manager of Construction and Planning, ordered the crew to remove a Men Working sign that she called “sexist.”
The incident occurred the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, as an all-male construction crew from the company JCrane was working in an area of Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio. The crew was told to immediately cease all work until the “sexist sign” was removed. Crew foreman Matt Peters initially thought the request was a joke, and the work continued. Sinclair employee Jim Fauzy appeared on site to say that the men needed to stop immediately until the Men Working sign was gone.
Breitbart News spoke to foreman Matt Peters, who confirmed that Liz Verzi told him in a meeting that the sign was sexist and should be replaced with a “Crew Working” sign. Peters quoted Ms. Verzi as saying, “That sign is sexist and it’s not up for discussion.”
The incident caused serious fallout. Jcrane, Inc. owner Jack Stull said in a letter that he would continue the work but would not replace the sign. “I’m through with appeasing, I’m tired of political correctness, and I’m no longer fearful of their media or their lawsuits,” he insisted. “I will stand for truth.”
The response from Mr. Stull is EXACTLY what is needed when these miscreants start whining that they are offended. Anyone with a clue would never see the sign as sexist. In other words, the problem here was not the sign. The problem, as it always is with PC, are the malcontents and their victim mentality. The more we, the normal people, stand up to them, the sooner they will shut the Hell up and let us alone. But, the more we appease their fanaticism, the more they will bully us.
Via Bob Belvedere, who sums up political correctness quite well.
America, unlike every other nation in History, was founded on a set of ideas. They were based on the wisdom gathered over the millennia and absorbed by The Founding Fathers. That modern Americans are willing to deny the legitimacy of such ideas when shamed into feeling guilty about holding them by people who want to destroy everything we stand for is a sign of a people gone soft.
Political Correctness is nothing but a tactic straight out of the Leftist Playbook that seeks to undermine our confidence in our capacity to reason. It aims to sow self-doubt. It often works because it plays on the natural human tendency of people brought up in a Judeo-Christian Culture to feel guilt [PC-inspired guilt is misplaced guilt; the only guilt we should feel is when we disappoint God].
Could This Be One Explanation?
We are perishing in an orgy of PC-based guilt and unless we resolve to cast this misplaced guilt into the depths of the oblivion it deserves, we shall be consumed by it and overrun by America’s enemies [most likely, the Left].
Very well stated sir!
Students are being told to leave the Christmas cookies, cakes, candy bars, and soda at home and to bring fruits, unsweetened juices, popcorn and raisins instead.
Well, at least they are not banning them because “Christmas” might “offend” someone.
But the thought process behind the ban is just as offensive.
Superintendent Everett Olsen says the ban on holiday sweets has nothing to do with being politically correct, rather, his motive is simply promoting a healthy lifestyle.
“We aren’t trying to take the Christmas out of Christmas. We’re not trying to take the enjoyment out of children’s lives. We’re just trying to act responsible,” he told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mike Macklin.
Ah, the Nanny State rolls on, minding everyone else’s business. This is an intrusion upon our collective liberty. Sure that is a strong statement, but it is also true.
I know I do. One of the most disturbing trends over the past decade has been children, being punished, suspended, maybe even expelled from school, for being children. The list of kids, hurt by “zero tolerance” is long, and troubling. Recently a nine-year-old boy made news for being suspended from school. His “crime”? Calling his teacher cute. Yes, apparently that innocent remark is sexual harassment to the politically correct. The Lonely Conservative has the story for us, with not only a happy ending, but with punishment for the idiot principal who made the asinine decision to punish this child.
Jerry Bostic told The Gaston Gazette he could understand being written up for the suspension and having someone follow up during the school year, but he added that he was disappointed because this is how his 44 years in education ended.
“To me it’s a really sad final note to a career that I have found very satisfying and enjoy working with kids,” Bostic said. “I really don’t believe I was treated fairly.”
Awww, he was treated unfairly? Too bad. Some might think it mean to celebrate the firing of this man, but to me, people with his lack of judgement do not belong anywhere near kids, good riddance! I wish the same thing would happen to every teacher/principal who punishes kids for acting like kids.As The Lonely Conservative puts it……..
Well, now he knows how that young boy felt when he was suspended.
A Seattle public school has decided that Easter eggs are super offensive and not politically correct. They’ve renamed them Spring Spheres (even though eggs are not spheres. This is our public education system at work, people):
“At the end of the week I had an idea to fill little plastic eggs with treats and jelly beans and other candy, but I was kind of unsure how the teacher would feel about that,” Jessica said.
She was concerned how the teacher might react to the eggs after of a meeting earlier in the week where she learned about “their abstract behavior rules.”
“I went to the teacher to get her approval and she wanted to ask the administration to see if it was okay,” Jessica explained. “She said that I could do it as long as I called this treat ‘spring spheres.’ I couldn’t call them Easter eggs.”
Rather than question the decision, Jessica opted to “roll with it.” But the third graders had other ideas.
“When I took them out of the bag, the teacher said, ‘Oh look, spring spheres’ and all the kids were like ‘Wow, Easter eggs.’ So they knew,” Jessica said.
Of course they knew. Because they are Easter eggs.
Oh, it’s Seattle, one might say. Of course such things happen there. Hippies! Well, a similar thing occurred in my old hometown in New Jersey. The town Easter egg hunt was changed to “Spring Celebration. With Bunny.”
They have since changed it again. One of the dreaded “E” words is no longer forbidden. No, no… not “Easter.” That would be going too far!
They only allow the word “egg” again.
Annual Spring Egg Extravaganza
by Jack Terhune on Mon, Apr 11 2011 11:31 AM
The Annual Spring Egg Extravaganza Is this Saturday April 16, 2011 in Wood Park. The “Hunt” begins at 10:30 A.M. sharp so don’t be late!!! Jack Terhune
I don’t know what a “spring” egg is. How is it different from, say, a summer egg? It looks better in different colors? What if you get a fall egg instead? Will it clash with all the rest?
It should be noted that I no longer live there, what with being an evil conservative, intolerant diversity-hater and all.
This town in New Jersey is rather swanky. And leans Democrat by a very large margin. Most of the time, there isn’t even a Republican on the ballot come city council election time. It is mostly white and primarily Christian and Jewish. In my nearly 40 years, I’ve yet to come across a person of the Jewish faith who was offended by Easter bunnies or Easter eggs. But, I suppose my 40 years of “rich life experiences” don’t count, since I’m plain old Caucasian and all.
Reality is not taken into consideration, natch. The Left’s default position is that other cultures, no matter how barbaric, must be not only tolerated, but embraced. In fact, we should give up some of our rights – like free speech – just to be all tolerant and accepting. It’s enlightened multiculturalism and all! Plus, they don’t know any better. We can’t expect them to have moral compasses. We have to just pat them on the head and appease them.
American traditions, however? Must be eradicated. They are the root of all evil, you see. Anyone who doesn’t believe the same, must be a redneck-y rube. Love to see children frolicking and giggling, searching for Easter eggs – and calling them that?
You are obviously bitterly clinging to your bible. I’m sure it’s somehow racist and anti-woman, too.
(Daily Mail)– In the nursery rhyme, the Gingerbread Man fled from the clutches of an old woman and her husband.
But now he has been cornered by an even more unforgiving foe – political correctness.
Council bureaucrats have stripped gingerbread men of their gender and renamed them gingerbread ‘persons’ on menus for 400 primary schools.
Parents in Lancashire were astonished when they discovered the change.
‘It is absolutely ridiculous,’ one mother said. ‘Someone has obviously taken the effort to change this and it is almost offensive.
‘I am all for anti-discrimination but this is a pudding. The gingerbread man is a character from a rhyme in a book, for goodness sake.’
