You find things of value in the darnedest places. I was doing research for my Star Trek Club’s 40th Anniversary when I ran across a clip from an episode I hadn’t seen in many years, “The Savage Curtain” (1969).
It would give the Politically Correct apoplectic shock if they could get their Political Correct brains around Star Trek, that is. They couldn’t handle “The Dukes of Hazzard” after all. 🙂
LINCOLN: What a charming negress. Oh, forgive me, my dear. I know in my time some used that term as a description of property.
UHURA: But why should I object to that term, sir? You see, in our century we’ve learned not to fear words.
KIRK: May I present our communications officer, Lieutenant Uhura.
LINCOLN: The foolishness of my century had me apologising where no offense was given.
KIRK: We’ve each learned to be delighted with what we are. The Vulcans learned that centuries before we did.
SPOCK: It is basic to the Vulcan philosophy, sir. The combination of a number of things to make existence worthwhile.
Imagine the politically correct not being “offended” by mere words!!! The mind boggleth.
The left without fear mongering. Not afraid of words.
Now that is a utopian vision for you.
Written for a show about a vision of hope.
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.”- Dr. Martin Luther King (1963)
Some on the left consider this “mind rape” and race baiting by the white patriarchy.
How is possible that the 1960’s could be MORE tolerant in many ways than the “enlightened” 21st Century?
The politics of power.
There is no actual power in equality or celebrating actual diversity. Only in division. And there is more division now than there has been in 50 years or more.
The Progressive Left celebrated it’s victory at Ferguson, MO one year ago. Where they took an aggressive black man who attacked a white cop and made not only Cops the bad guys but White People in general.
Many in the crowd in Ferguson wore T-shirts emblazoned with Brown’s portrait and the words “Choose Change.” Others carried signs, including one that read: “STOP killing black children.”
What Change? White people stop killing black people, of course.
NAACP president Cornell William(I always love these guys because their organization’s own name is Politically Incorrect, oh the irony)
He urged passage of laws against racial profiling by police and support for reforms requiring body cameras, independent prosecutors and retraining of US police departments.
Cops are politically incorrect to shoot black people, especially White cops and they must be retrained to be think of Political Correctness first and their safety and the safety of the public, second. If that gets them killed, oh well, their only cops… Cops Lives Don’t Matter. 🙂
“No accountability, no justice. Police are still killing us — it’s a crisis that’s going on,”-Erica Snipes, the daughter of Eric Garner.
#Blacklivesmatter becoming its rallying cry. (Yahoo)
Everyone else, screw off you racists!
They stormed the stage of Socialist Bernie Sanders, he’s more “progressive” than they are. (they even stormed the ultra-ultra-ultra Liberal Netroots Convention)
“I was going to tell Bernie how racist this city is — with all of its progressives — but you’ve already done that for me. Thank you.”
“If you care about Black Lives Matter, as you say you do, you will hold Bernie Sanders specifically accountable for his actions,” Johnson continued.
He may be the biggest socialist in Congress and the biggest one running for President, but he’s evil. He’s white!
But, don’t worry, it’s only “Star Trek”, no one really cares about that. 🙂
Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Or in the case of the Progressive those who refuse to learn continue to strive for the perfect division so that there power is perfected and if you don’t succeed keep doing it until you do.
Say one thing, do the opposite.
The end justifies the means.
And that is the Progressive Left in a nutshell.
