Well, I guess I am in trouble again. Just took my dogs for a walk over the mountain.
Threw some rocks which they fetched, and I said Good Boy and Good Girl. Sheesh.
Clearly, you are a racist. Don't know why but give me time, I'll come up with something. Probably a transgenderphobic and a Dr.Suess fan too.
I'm going to pick some group randomly to oppress this morning, then spend the afternoon basking in my white privilege. That must be code for 'clean the bathrooms' because that's what I have on the agenda.
Oh sure, clean the bathrooms - and take away the legitimate work of our oppressed brothers and sistahs.
OK, here's a weird thought that popped into my head today.
Remember those Kentucky Fried Chicken commercials over the past few years with a different person playing Colonel Sanders? Remember the one where he was ballroom dancing with Aunt Jemima?
What folder does that go in?
What do you call it when you take the cherished objects of a culture and tear them up, bring down all the statues and destroy their books and history? Oh yeah, genocide.
So, I've been fighting WW2 since the 60s. GI Joe and I that is. In the past 15 years or so younger authors had taken different approaches to going over the same old ground; the stories I know have changed. Shattered Sword by Parshall and Tully is the example I'm thinking of that used different sources to dispute the history of a particular event. Ian Toll is another author that really knows how to engage a reader and add new perspective. There are times when history as written has been directly contradicted but universally things like that are identified and put into context. Sometimes there is still emotion and heat involved in those instances. Point is, all of it is part of the story and you can't just clip out and keep the parts you like. Removing them is removing context and the product is diminished as a result. Real history takes time to cook, this cancel culture is nothing but a knee jerk mob reaction driven by the instantaneous brainwashing s**t cycle we call media. Doesn't mean there aren't any valid points to be considered, but what a stupid way to go about things.
Titania McGrath is a parody Twitter account which lampoons modern leftist sentiment. The character was even mentioned earlier in this thread here, by karl 12:
The P C Madness thread.
AMEN But it took a Canadian to show us this.
Canadians are Americans too. (north americans)
And so are Central and South Americans. I meant no offense to the Canadians. I just wanted to
point out that someone looking from the outside had a clearer point of view or was less
inhibited in expressing it.
We should be concerned. The craziness of late, and the weaknesses exhibited recently by our
Pres. are being noted. As is the war in Congress. We should be on our guard against those that
would use this period of time to make a move against us.
Are you pretending like people in the U.S. are not seeing the same thing he is? He is saying it but it is not news, many of us have been pointing it out for a long time. His way of saying it is more clever and memorable. The same goes for sports "heroes" as it does for Hollywood celebrities.
No, I was referring to the fact that Youtube allows Canadians and others to make comments that they might censor from publication by Americans. They seem to give them quite a bit of wiggle room, based on some idea that it represents international content. And I agree with the sports and Hollywood being equally there.

6 Reasons You Should Stop Referring To Women As "Females" Right Now
Speaking about WOKE.... I Just found this on FB... don't know about it's provenance? ... but if it's legit, you can call me whatever you want, but it's just not right!! ... And I just don't know why people think it is???? .. Did I go to sleep a couple of years ago, and somehow wake up in an alternative universe without realising?
It is factual in the case of Charlize Theron, at least, as I happened to read an article about that a while ago (her adopted child supposedly made the decision to be a girl at the age of three). It is currently fashionable for well-to-do liberal parents to change their children's "gender" (which is supposedly different to sex, although the printed dictionaries I have in my house from the year 2000 and earlier indicate that this is a recent development in the English language). If all of these celebrity instances are true, then it suggests that it is more so the modish parents doing the choosing, rather than the children.
Thanks for the chuckle. Google owns Youtube and I don't think censorship on that platform has anything to do with country borders. If you said the same thing that JP Searls says on Youtube it would be allowed if you made money for google. Money is what drives them, not politics. Maybe the owners have predispositions towards certain narratives but based on what I have seen on youtube there is no censoring based on where someone lives.
P.S. Jim, maybe you have a problem with Canadians you need to look at, why else would it bother you that Canadians say anything about anything? Hollywood is where most Canadian actors go to get famous.
Well, they made their play. The Communists joined with the LGBT crowd and the ones that own Hollywood and the News Media, and that's what was voted in, folks. It's bizarro world from now on. They will end up destroying society along with the economy. Until the rising that is.
Why do you care??? It has nothing to do with you does it? Just ignore hollywood, that is a propaganda machine designed to keep us distracted and upset. Besides, if you found it on Facebook, consider the source, there is nothing real on facebook.
