  • Seriously, Who Cares if A Liberal Is Offended?

    Go offend a liberal. It doesn’t matter. The left gets offended over everything. Literally. They will find a reason to be upset about something. The ultimate goal of a leftist is to shut up the opposition. By taking the fifth rule of Saul Alinsky, ”ridicule is man’s most potent weapon,” liberals try to shut up anyone with whom they don’t agree. To render the fifth rule ineffective, the recipient of leftist attacks must not care and voice their beliefs. Charles Davis is the dean of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia. Recently, a...
  • In a World Where Everyone's Offended by Everything, Can Comedy Exist? (Much Apu About Nothing)

    One of the greatest comic minds of the twentieth century, Mel Brooks, said late last year that "stupid political correctness" would be "the death of comedy." "It's not good for comedy," Brooks said in September 2017.  "Comedy has to walk a thin line, take risks.  Comedy is the lecherous little elf whispering in the king's ear, always telling the truth about human behavior." It's safe to say Brooks speaks from a podium of unparalleled wisdom on this matter.  His movie Blazing Saddles remains one of the least politically correct movies Hollywood has ever made.  It's also probably the funniest.  Brooks has said that that "political correctness...

    Remember when people used to let things go? When people would just get along, not hunt for secret meanings behind actions and ways to be offended for the sake of being offended? Thanks to the progressive left that day is done.These guys suck the joy out of everything. The simple things, the complex things – everything is now fertile ground for being offended, for outrage, for an opportunity to attack Republicans, especially President Trump. Being a victim is now a coveted status on the political left, so liberals aspire to it by creating asinine things such as “microaggressions.” A microaggression, for...

    So, get to work Trump Team; stop putzing around saying “I’m innocent I tell ya!” “We the people” already know you are innocent. Track down and prosecute the guilty. Stop dithering and start playing offense—HUGELY President Trump and his aides want to know what to do about the Trump/Russia collusion brouhaha. Glad they asked. This is what they need to do: First of all, STOP PLAYING DEFENSE. Anyone with half a brain already knows that there is no “there” there, and playing defense is a waste of time. Enough with the “I’ve been framed yer Honor, framed I tell ya!”...

    Trying not to offend someone these days is really hard apparently. When you do, it’s often those people shouting for peace and calm that like to assault people they disagree with. Probably the most hilarious way of offending someone, however, is when they are offended that you aren’t offended by something! That’s exactly what happened to model Christine Teigen earlier this week. As was also reported by Newsbusters, Teigen ran into some unexpected hot water when she made two seemingly innocent tweets about how she found the word “oriental” to be odd when talking about her salad dressing:
  • Tis the Season to be Offended: The war against Christmas Symbols is not a "manufactured" controversy

    America Thinker ^ | 12/23/2015 | John Dietrich
    This is the time of year when news of people being offended by Christian symbols reaches a high point. Progressives view complaints about a “war on Christmas” as manufactured. Barack Obama commented on this in 2006: This notion that's peddled by the religious right -- that they are oppressed -- is not true. Sometimes it's a cynical ploy to move their agenda ahead. The classic example being that somehow secularists are trying to eliminate Christmas, which strikes me as some kind of manufactured controversy. Most of these “manufactured” offenses take place in schools, the media, the military, and government bureaucracies. When...

    I am angry all the time. I am constantly upset to the point that I can’t eat and can barely sleep. Just the sight of other people laughing fills me with painful rage. Because that’s how tolerant I am. We are in a golden age of progressivism. We are hurtling to new frontiers of tolerance and understanding that not even the most fevered imagination could have conceived of a decade ago. And that’s because we’ve unlocked the core of progressivism, the sine qua non of people of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual preferences, and categories yet to be added getting...

    National Review ^ | 07/30/2015 | Katherine Timpf
    According to a “Bias-Free Language Guide” used by the University of New Hampshire, the word “American” is “problematic” and therefore should not be used. “North Americans often use ‘American’ which usually, depending on the contexts, fails to recognize South America,” the guide explains. “[It] assumes the U.S. is the only country inside these two continents,” it adds. It recommends using “Resident of the U.S.” or “U.S. citizen” instead. According to the guide, other “problematic” terms include “opposite sex” (it recommends using “other sex,”) “senior citizen” (it recommends “old people” or “people of advanced age”) and “obese” (it recommends using...

    I suspect that somewhere, there is a top secret organization that does nothing all day but look for innovative and novel ways that society offends one group or another. How else do you explain this? CBS Pittsburgh: The Port Authority is looking into bus slogans that some are calling offensive. Officials say they’ve recently received complaints that one of its slogans, “Ziggin Zaggin,” is offensive when read backwards, seeming to spell out a racial slur. Are you kidding me? Backwards?  im Ritchie with the Port Authority says they will remove the messages from buses. “… due to recent complaints about how this message...

    The Daily Beast ^ | 05/12/2015 | Kirsten Powers
    College should be a place of new ideas and challenging views. Instead, liberals have made it a place of fear and intimidation. The root of nearly every free-speech infringement on campuses across the country is that someone—almost always a liberal—has been offended or has sniffed out a potential offense in the making. Then, the silencing campaign begins. The offender must be punished, not just for justice’s sake, but also to send the message to anyone else on campus that should he or she stray off the leftist script, they too might find themselves investigated, harassed, ostracized, or even expelled. If...

    Dear America, Lena Dunham and Trevor Noah might not be funny, but that's no reason to form a posse. Lena Dunham received plenty of criticism for her insufferable New Yorker piece titled “Dog Or Jewish Boyfriend? A Quiz.” In it, the creator of “Girls” weighs the pros and cons of getting a pet or keeping her Jewish boyfriend: “He doesn’t tip,” and “he never brings his wallet anywhere,” and so on. The jokes may tell us something about her comedic abilities, her audience and the New Yorker, but, despite much handwringing, it tells us nothing about anti-Semitism. The ADL’s National...

    .........Earlier this week, [Obama] waded into state politics, sharply denouncing Walker for signing legislation in Wisconsin that prohibited mandatory union dues. "Even as its governor claims victory over working Americans, I'd encourage him to try and score a victory for working Americans - by taking meaningful action to raise their wages and offer them the security of paid leave," Obama said in a statement. In both instances, he signaled he was not going to entirely ignore the 2016 contest or its main players if there was an opportunity to advance his own agenda. "We're going to engage in this dynamic...

    Crisis Magazine ^ | August 26, 2014 | PETE JERMANN
    Taking offense certifies the modern man as one who cares. If we take offense on behalf of another, we can number ourselves among the sensitive and loving. If we take offense personally, we can brandish a stop sign declaring to all that the offense must cease. In either case, the offending words must stop and the conversation must end. For the modern lover never offends. Instead he unfailingly affirms. He affirms us with an “okay” that builds our self-esteem, engenders good feelings, and requires nothing of us beyond self-affirmation.But can people who love one another do so simply by...

    Ralph Nader on Tuesday said President Obama has committed impeachable offenses dating back to the United States' effort in 2011 to create a no-fly zone in Libya. Nader, who has previously called for Obama's impeachment, said Congress would not take up articles of impeachment at the time of the Libya mission because it has “abdicated” its responsibility in matters of war. "Libya was the most egregious violation of the Constitution by President Obama," Nader told ABC News-Yahoo News. "He attacked Libya with European nations without a declaration of war, he didn't ask Congress for an authorization of funds. He didn't...

    A top advisor to President Barack Obama urged Congressional Democrats on Friday to "go on offense" against Republicans on the issue of taxes and argued that the Supreme Court ruling upholding the incumbent's signature health care law should be the "clear and final" word on the issue. In a memo made public by the White House, David Plouffe accused Republicans of "trying to misrepresent" Obama's record on taxes. "We welcome this debate on middle class taxes, and we urge you to seize this opportunity to go on offense to illustrate how the President and Democrats in Congress are standing up...

    Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.(Luke 17:1-2)There are times when, although you already know about a bad societal trend, an event occurs which crystallizes all that you sense was wrong about it. I had one of those moments when I opened a Saturday edition of the Cedar Rapids Gazette, our local newspaper, and read an...

    Rep. Joe Sestak, the winner of the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary, says quite openly and repeatedly that he was offered a job by the White House if he would drop out of the race against Sen. Arlen Specter. Having secured Specter's conversion to the Democratic Party, thus giving the party a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, the Obama administration obviously sought to keep its word to Specter that it would do its utmost to deliver the Democratic nomination to him. According to Sestak, that included a job offer. Who made the offer? What position was offered? And when did it...

    Doubling-down on defense isn't going to win the War on Terror. Yesterday's scare in Times Square shows just how hopeless that strategy is -- if a cooler can be a threat, not even the NYPD will be able to stop them all. Yet the uptick in home-turf terror plots -- with last Saturday's bomb attempt just the latest -- has many screaming for us to fund an infinite range of new security steps. Faisal Shahzad hadn't even been charged before the rear-mirror scrutiny began. How did he slip past security and board a flight to Dubai before finally being nabbed,...
