College kids – too fragile to handle a Presidential debate?

by Skip September 27, 2016

Sheesh.  Hofstra is all over themselves for being the only institute of higher learning that has hosted a Prez debate in the last three cycles.  You’d think that their students would be all set with all of the attention that comes with that.  But sadly (and scary), not even these “seasoned” students can stand on […]

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 […]

If the Left believes that a gun is an animate object, well…

by Skip September 17, 2016

“It seems there is a hitherto unnoticed species of oppression that has yet to be addressed on most campuses:” This is preferential parking spaces for cis-engined electric vehicles. As it happens, my Ford F-450 XL Extended Cab Diesel Super Duty self-identifies as an electric/bioethanol hybrid. This makes parking in university parking lots a very traumatic […]

Data Point – CEO compensation

by Skip September 14, 2016

Instead, advocates of redistribution cavalierly diminish the importance of incentives. They claim the success of America’s 1% stems from rising cronyism despite overwhelming evidence that the status quo has grown less entrenched. Seventy percent of the wealth of the top 0.1% is owned by self-employed business owners who bested competitors to satisfy customers, not cronies, […]

Notable Quote – Victor Davis Hanson

by Skip August 16, 2016

Orwell was wrong only on his dates. Had he entitled his novel 2016, we would immediately have recognized his parallels to the present “overseas contingency operations,” “violent extremism,” “undocumented immigrants,” and “man-caused disasters.” The campus diversity czar is our Big Brother. Imagining that all lives matter is a thought crime. Due process on a campus […]

Comedians Punching Back at the PC Speech Police

by Scott Morales June 8, 2016

A documentary entitled, “Can We Take A Joke?” produced by Adam Carolla and Gilbert Gottfried came out.  It’s about how the offended class (Ahem, the pansy left control freaks) are too sensitive to hear words without spinning into a petulant frenzies.  They’re petulant and they have a frenzy when they hear words or phrases they […]

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 […]

Daryl Hall on Cultural Appropriation: Appropriate This!

by Scott Morales May 17, 2016

The PC pantywaists at Salon got a little smack back by an 80’s icon during an interview last week.  During the interview with Daryl Hall, from the Hall and Oates fame and who also has a television show currently airing somewhere, the interviewer asked about the latest progressive drop of insanity in the lefty crazy […]

Notable Quote – Ezra Levant

by Skip May 10, 2016

“Universities are now just daycare for millennials who don’t want to grow up, whose only real purpose is to become little soldiers of political correctness and radical activists. I’m not calling for a ban on anything. Except a ban on forcing the rest of us to pay for this crap.” -Ezra Levant Problem is, we […]

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon”. Identity politics is PERFECT to use it against

by Skip April 18, 2016

So who SAYS I can’t be anything I want to be – YOU??  The folks at the Family Policy Institute of Washington, in showing just how delusional this ability to accept just about anything about what/who someone wants to identify as,  just keep taking those poor Politically Correct college students down that road to complete absurdity […]

Frankly, they’re ALL daft and all too concerned with making victim of themselves

by Skip March 31, 2016

I don’t write much about the loonyness that is going on in the Ivory Tower (Ground Zero for the stupidity that is known as Political Correctness) – it just gets too bizarre that these precious snowflakes that seemingly haven’t had to work a second in their lives and pay taxes are all up in arms […]

Cultural Appropriation: If you want me to stop taking yours, stop taking mine!

by Skip December 28, 2015

Cultural Appropriation – what a nonsense idea!  It’s all the rage with the PC college campi and Social Justice Warrior jihadists in that one culture (generally white because RACISM!) decides to seriously or lightheartedly take some aspect of an oppressed (generally non-white because RACISM!) culture (oops, I just appropriated “jihad” from a culture that is […]

Then why have standards at all? Feminist ideology still trying to trump reality

by Skip December 27, 2015

No, not THAT Trump – the reality that standards are generally there for a reason in life, safety, and the military.  Physical strength counts and counts for a lot (yes, I just got a reminder of that this weekend when *I* couldn’t open the Saab’s coolant cover no matter what I did and the Eldest […]

Does this make Bing Crosby an enabler of racism? Sheesh!

by Skip December 22, 2015

This really is the evil confluence of political correctness, racism around every corner and thing, and the obvious failure of our educational system.  Seriously, “White Christmas”? Is nothing sacred anymore?  (H/T: The Blaze)

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 […]

The Lost Focus Of Terrorism

by Rick Olson December 9, 2015

“I am politically incorrect, that’s true. Political correctness to me is just intellectual terrorism. I find that really scary, and I won’t be intimidated into changing my mind. Everyone isn’t going to love you all the time.”   –Mel Gibson Candidate Donald J. Trump declared that he wants to stop all Muslims from entering the […]

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 […]

Feminist Contradiction: How can one be a victim AND empowered at the same time?

by Skip October 26, 2015

Hmm, I just can’t decode this logic.  Professor Suzanne Venker was “disinvited” from giving a “harmful” speech at uber-Liberal Williams College – apparently, the students there think they are adults but prove they are little better than children. Its “paper of record”, The Williams Record, has a pitful editorial that, well, mirrors well what Venker was saying on […]

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and flies like a…

by Skip October 23, 2015

duck, it’s a duck: You can argue theology all day long, but if they’re shooting at you, take them at their word and JUST SHOOT THEM!  But always be ware that there are more ways to wage war than just with gunpowder and bullets.  Unfortunately, our “Leaders” can’t seem to figure out that Political Correctness […]

Should be one of our WTF entries for tomorrow’s GrokTALK!

by Skip October 2, 2015

I read the post – totally unhinged from reality and it proves my point – the Left doesn’t care at ALL who it must tyrannize in order to “grant” freedom to “the oppressed”.  Once again, we see that the Left must TOTALLY distort the common language (“…freedom from destitution…”) in order to make their point. Adding […]

Political Correctness – when the Left really has no winning argument

by Skip October 2, 2015

We’ve railed against Political Correctness for years and how it is the hobgoblin of minor minds.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been called a racist, misogynist, homophobe, cold-hearted, uncaring…and a TEA Partier (heh!).  Frankly I don’t much care and a couple of times I’ve started laughing – which drives that Progressive nuts […]

Notable Quote

by Susan Olsen September 30, 2015

“There’s a level of anger far deeper and more consequential than expressed rage or visible behavior. Cold Anger does not need to go to violence. For those who carry it, no conversation is needed. You cannot poll or measure it; and even those who carry it avoid discussion. And that decision has nothing whatsoever to […]

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, […]

Political Correctness gets skewered by Colin Quinn absurdly

by Skip August 26, 2015

As a national comedian, he should know – the SJW and Political Correctness crowd are about as humorless as it gets.  There is a saying that conservatives like comedy and we know that being politically incorrectness HAS to be a part of it.  But the Humorless People?  I just don’t get it – if you […]

Feminists: getting human nature wrong

by Skip August 24, 2015

From the article at the Union Leader (reformatted, emphasis mine): Women go topless to send message of equality at Hampton Beach To this ordinary schlub, it just seems that the feminist movement has lost its mind over the rather silly idea that parts of the female body can just be “declared” to be asexual just […]

RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

by Skip August 15, 2015

In this day of absolute insanity on college campuses (campi?) from the Left’s censorship via Political Correctness, the Obama Administrations destroying the idea of due process when accused and being judged by a jury of your peers (as opposed to an academic Star Chamber), and the feminists’ perpetual victimhood and that the victim MUST always […]
