Jonathan Pie is a British satirist that Crowderheads may remember from Internet ‘Satirist’ Rants About Why Americans Hate Liberalism. Think Bill Maher, in that he’s on the left, though gets angry and fed up with a lot of the same things we do. Our common ground is muddy with liberal tears.
Today that sopping common ground is over precious snowflakes and other leftists on college campuses censoring speech.
“All this youthful energy concentrating on stopping debates rather than winning them. No wonder being right-wing is the new Rock’n’Roll on uni campuses. That’s how you rebel these days.”
“If you’re offended by To Kill a Mockingbird because it uses language of its time that is no longer acceptable, if you can’t make that distinction, then you’re a f’ing idiot…”
For the clear and constantly reiterated record, the utterance of words one might find displeasing is not on par with public defecation. As rancid as one’s diction may be. Words are also not on par with throwing Fido and Fluffy into the park pond for a game of “Who’s Going to Grow Up to be a Psycho Serial Killer.” Words are, in fact, just words. Sure, words have a way of illustrating truths, causing ego inflammations, or can be as useful as an old Apple TV unit which cuts out during dramatic scenes. But they’re still words. Speech which one finds irksome can be combatted… with more speech. It’s rather a lovely exercise, discussion. Even if that discussion devolves into calling the other person’s mother a gelatinous sea-cow.
Thankfully there’s been an increase in people confronting these sniveling Pampers models (see Claremont Students Stand up to #SJW Protestors and Ohio State Brilliantly Shuts Down SJW Student Protesters). But there is something about a British accent that makes everything sound more dignified. Even when he’s calling them to the prayer mat for their acceleration in sissiness. Bravo, good chap. Cheers to your mother.
Not that being undignified isn’t more fun…
