They are Coming For You…

 

Mary Katharine Ham and I have written a new book, End of Discussion, which explores and exposes how the Left (primarily) increasingly seeks to “win” cultural and political debates by preventing them from happening. Instead, they move to delegitimize, disqualify and demonize their opponents through the impugning of motives, name-calling, and bullying — all of which is intended to raise the cost of disagreement, and to stifle open conversation. This phenomenon is born on college campuses (Chapter 5: “Speech Police Academy”), weaponized in DC, and has begun to permeate all aspects of American life (Chapter 2: “Everything’s a Thing”). Mary Katharine quasi-launched End of Discussion with Bill O’Reilly on Monday, then we appeared jointly on The Kelly File last night. Among other things, we analyzed stories illustrating how the Outrage Circus is making America less free (see the gay marriage purges in Chapter 8: “Bake Me A Cake Bigots”) and less fun (“Chapter 9: “The Uptight Citizens Brigade”):

End of Discussion is available in Hardcover, digital and audiobook editions. It’s on sale at Amazon, elsewhere online, and at retailers across America — including Barnes & Noble, Walmart, Books-A-Million, Costco, and others. By the way, I’m joining the ladies of ‘Outnumbered’ on Fox News as #OneLuckyGuy today at noon ET. Please tune in!  I’ll leave you with a link to Rare’s excerpt from our chapter on the “war on women” aspect of the Outrage Circus’ acrobatics, entitled, appropriately enough, “The Vagina Demagogues.”  Enjoy, and please buy the book!

Jerry Seinfield: Seinfeld says teens and college-aged kids don’t understand what it means to throw around certain politically-correct terms. “They just want to use these words: ‘That’s racist;’ ‘That’s sexist;’ ‘That’s prejudice,’” he said. “They don’t know what the f­—k they’re talking about.”

He forgot the one of the Left’s favorites: “Islamophobia”.

Leno said much the same in March:

He said: ‘College kids now are so politically correct. I mean, to the point where — I’ll give you an example, we had interns at the show, college interns.

‘Like, the last year of the show, one of the interns comes and says, “Mr. Leno, I’m getting lunch. what do you want?’ I said, ‘I don’t know, where are you going?’

‘He said, “we’re getting Mexican.” I said, “I don’t really like Mexican.” He goes, “whoa, that’s kind of racist”.’
Leno then shouts: ‘That’s not racist.’

‘No, being anti-guacamole is not racist, okay? You have no idea what racism is. That’s not racist, you idiot, you moron.’ (Hot Air)

All the guys above are white dudes, which allows liberals to say, “Hey, aren’t you a white male? I think that’s enough out of you. End of Discussion.”

Rich, White dudes! Even WORSE!

There’s a whole chapter in “End of Discussion” devoted to these battles called, “The Uptight Citizens Brigade.” We applaud Joan Rivers for her genuinely unapologetic approach to comedy. We highlight the ludicrous spectacle of the outrage industry going after the famous drinking card game, “Cards Against Humanity,” for a card that was offensive even though the entire reason for the card game’s existence and every card in it is EXPLICITLY TO OFFEND.

Go watch “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” with an audience. That is the most Politically Incorrect movie environment left on Earth.

Hint: every time Susan Sarandan’s (yes, her!) Janet says just about anything you yell “slut” at the screen. It’s so un-PC! 🙂

Their mission and their guarantee is that they WILL OFFEND everyone. Then you’ll have a good time doing it!

< Comedian Colin>Quinn believes that this PC mindset has expanded from colleges to American society as a whole in recent years. “Now people are outraged over any ‘buzzword’ that they think is offensive which has led to George Orwell version of ‘groupthink’ that demands conformity.”

Pizza anyone? 🙂

At The Spike TV Guys Choice Awards Clint Eastwood was introducing The Rock, he compared the San Andreas star to former athletes who have become actors, like “Jim Brown and Caitlyn Somebody…,”

That “somebody” was considered so “offensive” that it will be edited out of the broadcast.

Yes, just that. That’s all it took for the PC police to go nuclear!

You know what Eastwood’s guilty of? He’s guilty of trying to use Jenner as a punchline, irrespective of what the point of the joke is. And that really is a thoughtcrime first-degree, bordering on blasphemy, in the current media climate.

That’s it.

Enjoy that freedom of thought because the Left is gunning for you, RIGHT NOW!.

You racist, homophobic, islamophobic, hater you!

You will comply. You will conform. You will do as you are told and think only thoughts we have approved of.

END OF DISCUSSION. 🙂

Political Cartoons by Dana Summers

Remember way back in 2009 when D.C. Democrats were promising that the $787-billion you-know-what program was going to start you-know-whating the economy almost immediately with those shovel-ready projects that were going to keep unemployment below 8%?

Well, tomorrow night you’re going to get the same ugly pig trotted out with new lipstick.

“stimulus” has been banned and officially does not exist anymore.

The unions would love it. And although their membership is only 11% of U.S. workers now, they make up a much higher percentage of the crumbling political base Obama needs to win reelection.

So, Pelosi has launched a campaign to pressure Obama to include some kind of gigantic “job creation” package in his grand Thursday night jobs address to Congress that will finally surely fix the nation’s troubled economy once and for all.

He’s had — what? — 961 days to get his economy act together and chew through all those economic advisors. Obama won’t be calling his plans S-plans either. They’ll be investments, which sound less lethal than another dying S-word, “spending.”

Also, FYI, “Recovery Act” is also gone the way of the Obama administration’s “man-caused disaster.” Now, it’ll be something about Made in America. Make It in America. That sort of thing. Which will make all the difference in the world.

It’s Miss Pig In the Pork 2011. Time to “invest” (spending-most for unions) in “job creation” (mostly for unions). Again…

Don’t worry, Be Happy…

So if you’re an angry Liberal have I got the release for you…

Angry liberals can now vicariously hunt down and kill the world’s most dangerous prey.  No, not human beings; Tea Party Zombies.  The Left continues to usher in our great new age of selective “civility” with the introduction of TeaPartyZombiesMustDie.com.

You know what they say: Never negotiate with terrorists. It only encourages them. These last few months, much of the country has watched in horror as the Tea Party Republicans have waged jihad on the American people. Their intransigent demands for deep spending cuts, coupled with their almost gleeful willingness to destroy one of America’s most invaluable assets, its full faith and credit, were incredibly irresponsible. But they didn’t care. Their goal, they believed, was worth blowing up the country for, if that’s what it took.

For now, the Tea Party Republicans can put aside their suicide vests. But rest assured: They’ll have them on again soon enough. After all, they’ve gotten so much encouragement. (NY Times)

And yet you know the next time there’s the slightest, remotely exploitable tragedy or hint of violence, the same reporters, editors, producers and politicians are going to insist that blood was spilled because of the right wing’s rhetoric.

Or even if no blood is spilled, they are all racists anyhow so why would it matter.

Hence, conservatives have morphed from figurative bogeymen into virtual, butcherable bogeymen.  I’ll admit that if liberals hadn’t wet themselves repeatedly during their pious civility crusades, maybe — just maybe — I’d find this game slightly entertaining.  But any propensity towards amusement is immediately stricken from my imagination the instant I picture the indignant media firestorm that would undoubtedly arise if the growling death targets resembled, say, Barack Obama.  In case you’re unclear on the rules of the rhetorical road, here’s a user-friendly recap:

Anti-conservative death fantasy game: Oh, lighten up, wingnuts — it’s just a silly game.

Anti-Obama death fantasy game: National. Crisis.  Hell, the emergency would be so acute, Congress might even reinstate bipartisan seating for Thursday’s presidential address.

To our valued Lefty readers: Don’t even try to pretend I’m inventing a nonexistent double-standard here. Spare me.  Oh, and to save you the trouble, once you’ve slain every last terrorist/racist/zombie, you’re rewarded with the following “victory” screenshot.  Congratulations, creep: (Guy Benson)

Politicians, intellectuals and whole armies of caretaker bureaucrats are among those who benefit, in one way or another, from picturing parasites as victims, and their lags behind the rest of society as reasons for anger rather than achievement.

Leading people into the blind alley of dependency and grievances may be counterproductive for them but it can produce votes, money, power, fame and a sense of exaltation to others who portray themselves as friends of the downtrodden...For those who think in terms of scoring talking points — as distinguished from trying to get at the truth — this kind of argument may sound good. (Thomas Sowell)
