  • The Court Of Master Sommeliers Will No Longer Use The Word 'Master' When Referring To People [Let Us Eliminate 'Master' to Soothe the WOKE!]

    The Court of Master Sommeliers is getting rid of the word "master" in common practice. It's typical for master sommeliers to be referred to as "Master" followed by their last name, but the prestigious wine organization is changing that in an attempt to make the wine industry more inclusive. >>> How many other 'masters' need to be eliminated to satisfy these purblind fanatics?
  • Rap Sheet: ***133*** Acts of Media-Approved Violence and Harassment Against Trump Supporters

    When not calling Trump supporters “Nazis” as a means to dehumanize us, the establishment media like to whine about the lack of civility in American politics, even as they cover up, ignore, downplay, or straight-up approve of the wave of violence and public harassment we are seeing against supporters of President Trump. It is open season on Trump supporters, and the media is only fomenting, encouraging, excusing, and hoping for more… The media are now openly calling Trump supporters “Nazis” and are blaming Trump for a mass murder he had nothing to do with. This, of course, is a form...

    Saying “God bless you” after someone sneezes is listed as a microaggression on a lengthy “anti-oppression” guide posted online by Simmons College. “This guide is intended to provide some general information about anti-oppression, diversity, and inclusion as well as information and resources for the social justice issues key to the Simmons College community,” it states, adding “this guide is by no means exhaustive.” Yet it includes hyperlinks to more than 100 resources, such as articles and videos, and boasts eight different subsections: anti-oppression, anti-racism, anti-transmisia, anti-ableism, anti-Islamomisia, anti-sanism, anti-queermisia and social justice zines. The guide’s authors explain that they replaced...
  • University Of California Guide: Saying “I’m Not Racist” Is Racist

    “Microaggression” list scorns would-be bigots An official University of California list of racist “microaggressions” asserts that saying “I’m not racist” is racist. The university guide defines microaggressions as, “everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership.” Examples listed on the university’s official website include telling someone, “you speak English very well,” telling an Asian person that they are good at math and insisting that “America is a melting pot”. Using the phrase, “I’m not racist, I have several...

    Massachusetts college librarians state that wishing someone a “Merry Christmas” or saying “God bless you” if they sneeze is an act of “Islamomisic microaggression”. Librarians at Simmons College in Boston have banded together to write what they have titled The Anti-Oppression Library Guide. While controversial, the guide is intended as a resource to promote equality and limit religious oppression. While the guide is not an official policy of Simmons College, some of its beliefs have already made their way to reports in mainstream media outlets like Fox News. Librarians at the college argue that “Islamomisic Microaggressions are commonplace verbal or...
  • The Women's Convention in Detroit Was a Feast of Microaggression

    The pink knit cap made famous by last winter’s Women’s March on Washington is already an anachronism. Not more than a couple dozen or so of the eye-catching toppers bobbed among the 4,000 or so activists attending “Women’s March Presents: The Inaugural Women’s Convention.” And those few “pussy hats” stuck out like embarrassing artifacts, reminders of the high hopes many on the left held for an anti-Trump feminist revival just 10 months ago. These three days at Detroit’s Cobo Center are billed as a chance to “Reclaim Our Time” and “March On” in the momentous spirit of the post-inaugural protests....

    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...

    Two professors claim to have discovered a new form of politically incorrect offense called “invisibility microaggressions,” which are said to be even more subtle than regular microaggressions. Their proposed solution for these offenses is to get rid of meritocracy. In social justice jargon, a “microaggression” is when someone — say a white person — asks an Asian person where they’re from. While the question isn’t offensive in and of itself, the act of asking a person who may get the same question repeatedly throughout the week can be annoying and therefore offensive. Campus Reform reported on Thursday that a recent...

    Two professors recently discovered that there are five different types of “invisibility microaggressions” women of color face, according to an article published Monday. Jasmine Mena, a Psychology professor at Bucknell University, and Annemarie Vaccaro, who teaches Higher Education at the University of Rhode Island, claim they are the first academics to argue that “invisibility” is a “common form of microaggression” experienced by professors of color.

    Came across an article from a few years back . . . It lays out the entire horrific truth about Che Guevara. Here's my thought. Time to turn around the microaggression movement on the college campuses and give them a taste of their own medicine. Every time a conservative student sees a poster of Che in a dorm room, listens to a nutjob professor try to whitewash Che's legacy or something similar . . . report it to the school as a microaggression and demand removal of the offending image and request the professor to write a public apology...

    Incredibly, it wasn’t until I was 19 that I learned that there had been a Holocaust. My hyper-assimilated, New England Jewish family and friends looked only to the present and future. We focused on the polio vaccine that promised to banish the iron lungs that had been our childhood terror. We trusted in the United Nations, whose gleaming buildings my father took me to see when they were brand-new, and from which I came away with hopeful admiration—mixed, however, with a vague sense, which I couldn’t have put into words then, that perhaps an enterprise housed in architecture so grandiosely...
  • Asking If A Transgender Person Had Surgery Or Just Enjoys Crossdressing Is A 'Microaggression' Now

    Asking transgender people if they have underdone genital mutilation surgery or if they are just run-of-the-mill crossdressers is now a "microaggression." A "nonbinary Ph.D. candidate" using the pseudonym Francis Walker discovered this new, menacing microaggression and added it to the world’s perpetually growing stockpile by way of a 1,245-word essay at Inside Higher Ed. [Snip] "One of the most common examples of a cissexist microaggression is asking a transgender person if they have had the surgery," Walker explains. "The question implies that there is only one surgery (not true), that the surgery is the only way the person can...

    Spoiled, self-absorbed, tyrannical brats: Remember, people who cannot be reasoned with, can only be fought. People like thinking the best of themselves, which is partially why we have “trigger warnings,” “microaggressions” and claims of “taking offense”—so these complainers don’t have to come to terms with the fact they’re spoiled, self-absorbed, tyrannical brats. Here’s how it works: When accusing you of “microaggressing,” the truth is that, generally, these snowflakes just don’t happen to like what you’re saying. But shouting “Shut up! I hate that type of expression!” makes you seem intolerant. So to preserve your image and self-image, you use the...

Mike Kinman, the rector of All Saints Church in Pasadena, broke the news to the congregation in a blog posting that was filled with all sorts of liturgical lunacy.

    Freshmen at a college orientation event have been told not to address other students with the phrase 'you guys' because it could be interpreted as excluding women. Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, has hired a chief diversity officer, Sheree Marlowe, who has directed students on how to avoid subtle insults known as 'microaggressions'. The trained lawyer who is 'committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in higher education' recently told freshmen at Clark they should avoid asking a black student if he plays basketball.

    UNC has removed “guidelines” for avoiding micro-aggression incidents on campus that included both of those behaviors. According to a statement released in the wake of concern over its free speech policies, UNC says the information, which was posted by a school employee in a forum intended for faculty and staff to share information and discuss potential policy changes, does not reflect the school’s official policy on handling questions of campus speech.

The whole purpose of college is to learn how to deal with difficult situations, not to run away from them. A microaggression is exactly that, micro.”
