‘Mr. Bean Knocks Cancel Culture’

March 28, 2021

“British actor and comedian Rowan Atkinson has become the latest celebrity to criticize so-called cancel culture. During an extensive interview with ‘Radio Times’, Atkinson, who is best known for his satirical “Mr. Bean” character, said cancel culture was eroding freedom of speech and made him fearful for the future. 

It’s important that we’re exposed to a wide spectrum of opinion, but what we have now is the digital equivalent of the medieval mob roaming the streets looking for someone to burn“,
he said.
So it is scary for anyone who’s a victim of that mob, and it fills me with fear about the future.”

‘There’s Blight in the Potato Patch’

March 9, 2021

Does evolution have a turning point, when it sharply reverses course? Have we passed that point? Are we well launched on a downward and implacable slope?

“No surprise there’s turmoil in the potato patch, weeping in the vegetable cellar. It’s all in the wake of that ‘Hasbro’ crowd sucking up to the ‘woke’ crowd and trying to knock the most famous potato in the world, one of the toy company’s top-sellers for almost 70 years, off his — deservedly-earned — ‘Patriarch-of-all-the-Starches’ Throne, the venerable ‘Mr. Potato Head’.

‘More ‘Decolonized’ (Dumbed-Down) Education’

March 1, 2021

Another university going down:
“A top historian today hit back at Leicester University’s (U.K.) plans to drop literary giant Geoffrey Chaucer in favour of replacement modules focused on race and gender. Plans emerged last week to shelve Chaucer’s “The Canterbury Tales”, as well as other works including old English epic poem “Beowulf”, in favour of a ‘decolonised’ {‘dumbed-down’, ‘politically-correct’} curriculum. 

“The University quickly faced a barrage of criticism and a spokesman insisted the authors were not being dropped for being ‘too white‘. (more…)

‘Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa’

August 18, 2020

   “‘Forbes’ has decided to unpublish an article by award-winning climate activist Michael Shellenberger, in which he apologizes “for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years“. 

   “Schellenberger, a ‘progressive’, was named one of TIME’s “Heroes of the Environment“, while his book “Break Through” was heralded by ‘WIRED’ as potentially “the best thing to happen to environmentalism since Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring”“. His book “Apocalypse Never” was widely praised as an ‘eye-opening, fact-based approach’ to climate science and ‘engaging and well-researched.’

   “Now that he’s apologized for three-decades of climate alarmism, ‘Forbes’ has now blocked Shellenberger’s article without explanation.

So, here it is:

‘Man Hijacking Miss Universe?’

December 16, 2018

“‘Angela’ Ponce is the first ‘transgender’ ‘woman’ to compete for the title of ‘Miss Universe’, and he’s said to be a heavy favorite to win. Ponce, a 27-year old model from Seville, bested his fellow countrywomen in Spain’s top beauty pageant in June, earning himself the right to compete for the international, if not intergalactic, crown in Bangkok in December.

“‘The Blast’ celebrity website reported Tuesday that Ponce is far-and-away the frontrunner going into the pageant, at least by the reckoning of internet odds-makers. (more…)

‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’

December 7, 2018

The collective lunacy that is ‘Political Correctness’ continues to subvert Western culture:

“Bell, Rogers, CBC (Canada) pull holiday classic ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ from radio playlists. The 1944 song features a back-and-forth between 2 singers, in which the man pressures the woman not to leave; the lyrics are being criticized as inappropriate.”

‘Social Justice’ Killing Education’

December 27, 2017

“Canada’s biggest school system has some problems. Math scores are flat or in decline. Too many kids aren’t doing well in school, and too many of them are ‘visible minorities’. Something must be done. What is it?

The answer is to make ‘social justice’ and “equity” the main focus of education in Ontario. Every school board, school and classroom will be re-engineered to root out {only ‘white’} ‘racism’ and ‘discrimination’. School boards will collect data on race and ethnicity to ensure that ‘equity’ {‘race’} is reflected in everything from staff hires to student suspensions. Teaching materials will be revised to be less ‘Eurocentric’ {‘intellectual’}. Children will be taught the {one-sided, Leftist} history of ‘colonialism’, residential schools and ‘oppression’. Kids in the “applied” stream will be placed in the academic stream, because streaming is ‘discriminatory’. (more…)

‘Political Correctness and Control Freaks Are Ruining Halloween’

November 3, 2017

“Canadian schools are wrestling with how to guide students and parents towards Halloween costumes that aren’t considered ‘offensive’ or ‘culturally insensitive’.

“In early October, a Canadian school board emailed a checklist “Is my costume appropriate?” to parents planning their children’s Halloween costumes. Fuschia Martians, mythical creatures, and animals got the all clear.

“On the what not to wear list for 31 October — cowboy and Indian costumes, slaves, terrorist, gypsy, Rastafarian and “urban ghetto resident”. (more…)

‘Taharrush in Sweden: Update’

July 21, 2017

“Sweden’s largest music festival has been cancelled next year {2018} due to reports of rape and sexual assaults at the event over the weekend.

“Allegations of rape and sexual assault at several music festivals in recent years have sparked outrage in Sweden.

‘Playing The Fool’

July 20, 2017

Here’s a famous musician/songwriter making a complete fool of himself. First, he claims he wrote a song that was too vulgar to release; then, he proceeds to recite the vulgar lyrics. For performers, the need for attention even overrides their inherent intelligence…

“Veteran songwriter Randy Newman revealed in an interview this week that he wrote a song mocking the size of President Donald Trump’s penis.
