War on Christmas – how can she say that “Jingle Bells” isn’t related to Christmas

by Skip December 17, 2017

EVERYTHING to Progressives/Leftist/Socialist HAS to be either indirectly racist or outright racist.  And if it isn’t, they’ll make sure that those invisible, unconscious, racist dots get connected somehow and some way. Boston University theatre professor Kyna Hamill recently argued in a research paper that the popular Christmas song has racist origins. “The legacy of ‘Jingle Bells’ is one where […]

Catching up Part 4 – NHDP Chair Ray “Bomb the Hague” Buckley throws the “You will be made to care” card at Sununu

by Skip October 23, 2017

That would be gay Ray “Bomb the Hague” Buckley of the militant LGBTQRSTUV (and whatever other letters have been added this week – I’m too busy to keep up) wing of the Democrat Party that will use any and all issues.  In this case, he decides to use the Democrat Cultural Marxism tactic of  “you’re […]

A professional Muslim singer can refuse to sing at a Christian church but a Christan…

by Skip March 12, 2017

but a professional Christian flower artist / photographer MUST can’t refuse a gay marriage? “That’s such a sticky situation”. Er, NO, it is not.  Only Political Correctness (aka, Cultural Marxism) makes it plausible ONLY if you really don’t think about it.  And most of these Precious Snowflakes are never challenged to really think. “Everyone agreed […]

How we got to this point (in part)

by Skip September 18, 2016

Political correctness grew out of the Marxism of the first half of the 20th century, particularly via the “critical theory” obsessions of the Weimar-era socialist Frankfurt School. Similarly, with their purges, speech codes, and purity tests, college campuses in the 21st century are essentially a recreation of the internal terror wars of the Soviet Union […]

The ACC’s adoption of Cultural Marxism gets a smackdown big time

by Skip September 17, 2016

First the NCAA and now the ACC have decided to strip North Carolina of any championships, especially football (as that is the time of year) because its state’s legislature decided that your chromosomes determine which bathroom you should go to with the passage of HB2. I am glad to see that Gov McCrory has stayed […]

Notable Quote – Theodore Dalrymple

by Skip May 31, 2016

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they […]

It seems this is a feature, not a bug: Yalies sign petition to repeal First Amendment

by Skip December 20, 2015

Absolutely gobsmacking!  Here ARE the Elites-in-waiting at one of the most prestigious school in the world and here in America.  One would expect that these wonderkids would “get” our history, given how many Presidents, Congresscritters, and Supremes (and others in lofty places in American society) it has graduated. Micro-aggressions, safe spaces, ability not to be […]

An observation on these college Precious Snowflakes

by Skip November 28, 2015

As we have been watching, the culmination of the Frankfurt School efforts has intersected with the elementary Ed crowd’s “show up trophy and self-esteem-o-rama” and the landing pads of helicopter parents (will SOMEBODY please stick a stick into that rearward prop??).  This from Powerline’s Ammo Grrrll seemed sufficiently cogent in summarizing how to salve their […]

Notable Quote – George Will

by Skip November 18, 2015

On what Progressivism and its tool, political correctness / cultural Marxism, has wrought in the Ivory Tower (emphasis mine): But whatever responsibility attaches to the parenting that produced those brittle Yalies, a larger portion of blame goes to the monolithic culture of academia. Where progressivism reigns, vigilant thought police will enforce a peace of wary […]

Well then, why didn’t Paris have a “safe space”

by Skip November 15, 2015

The inanity of this crybabies-on-campus just keeps going, prattling on about non-existent “white Privilege” (a made up Political Correctness submission tool”), “violating safe spaces” (a made up Political Correctness submission tool”), “micro-aggressions” (a made up Political Correctness submission tool”),  “trigger warnings” (a made up Political Correctness submission tool), “college is supposed to be a healing space” (funny, […]

Political Correctness – it really IS about silencing opponents and criticism

by Skip November 11, 2015

And when you manipulate definitions of common words and socially suppress even the speaking of ideas that “cause hurt and pain”, you win the argument because any opposing ideas, philosophies, or arguments can no longer even be expressed.  Doubt me?  Just listen to Bruce Jenner’s own words (emphasis mine, reformatted): BRUCE JENNER: MEDIA CAN’T SAY […]

Free Speech? On college campuses, that’s considered HATE speech

by Skip September 3, 2015

Orwellian: freedom from religion is religious freedom.  Owellian: freedom of speech has become freedom OF speech.  Both of our fundamental rights are being redefined to its exact opposite by the Marxist Left a la Political Correctness and “never offend anyone”. GraniteGrok’s response to that is short and pithy: screw you.  If you can’t withstand criticism, […]

“How the New Left Took Over the Democratic Party”

by Skip August 24, 2015

Rarely do I repost an entire article little commentary – this will be one of those times as the content and style of the piece is such that it hangs altogether on its own.  To pull a snippet here or another one from there would be a slight to the author and I still haven’t […]

Appropriate, given our GrokTALK! banter on “Left handed Albino Lesbian Studies” feminism

by Skip January 10, 2015

And the applicability of such a degree to today’s job market: “Left handed Albino Lesbian Studies” – heh!  I guess none of them would like the line that I see on some T-Shirts: “Yeah, now go make me a sammich”

The University Where Nobody Gets Raped

by Steve MacDonald September 21, 2014

Watching Liberals dance around their own cultural Marxism is fun, but rape is serious business.   Parents will want to consider alternatives to sending their daughter into sexual bondage at some progressive rape emporium, no matter how big their “endowment” is.

Well, isn’t that the purpose of Political Correctness – to eliminate speech?

by Skip August 27, 2014

Political Correctness = Cultural Marxism.  Or if you prefer, Orwell’s doublethink.  Eliminate the use of words and you eliminate the ideas they stand for.  Why do you think our schools and politics are so PC? (H/T: Liberal Logic 101)

The Battle of Competing Resentments

by Steve MacDonald August 8, 2014
Thumbnail image for The Battle of Competing Resentments

The Democrat party is the party of labels, stereotypes, and prejudice.  It is the party of division.  It feeds off this division to pursue power based on what it promises it can do with that power to get any given division of society whatever they claim or can convince them to think they deserve.  These […]

Democrats hate “Washington Redskins” but embrace Andrew Jackson – the real “Indian Killer”

by Skip August 4, 2014

Remember here, the Leftist activists and the hoi-polloi of the Democrat elite solons (e.g., Reid, Pelosi, and others of the Cultural Marxist (more the Marxist, notably)) that have decried their outrage they have (faux as it is) for any of those “racists” that believes that the Washington Redskins and Chief Wahoo mascot of the Cleveland Indians […]

“Caucasians” – I’m supposed to be offended by this white Chief Wahoo? Ha!

by Skip August 2, 2014

Let’s get right to the nub of this – the Progressive Left’s attempts to force a name change of the Washington Redskins (and college / high school teams and their mascots) is simply Political Correctness (aka, really Cultural Marxism) run amok. It is “groupthink” under the rubric of “politeness” – you WILL think like us about them or we […]

Cultural Appropriation: Er, who WOULD you ask for permission?

by Skip June 6, 2014

Seriously,  this Political Correctness on campuses is just getting well past “Stuck on Stupid”.  Does anyone study any serious subjects anymore?  Or is this stuff just the end result of the intersection of the Self-Esteem Trophy movement in our educational system with the Cultural Marxist (aka, Political Correctness) – just a huge puddle of precious […]

(North Hill Elementary) ROCHESTER, Mich. – If you don’t understand the phrase “cultural Marxism,” this is a good example. The purpose of the day is for our school to get together for an enjoyable two hours of activities and provide an opportunity for students, teachers and parents to interact cooperatively. Since we believe that all […]

And if you don’t think that GLAAD is authoritarian or totalitarian in nature…

by Skip December 23, 2013

Up to this point, I’ve said little on the Duck Dynasty imbroglio – but I will as Rick is absolutely spot on.  We are in a culture war that has been a “hot war” for a few years now.  Government is now in the business of enforcing a secular-humanism religion in the public square and […]

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon” – Hey, he used to teach it; time it is used on him

And so it begins: Government declares that sexual orientation trumps the First Amendment

by Skip July 31, 2013

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. And in this case, that would be the Freedom of […]
