Leftists are engaged in a war on words, a crusade which has led to absurdity rivaling the most ridiculous sketches of Monty Python. Only the humor is unintentional (read NOT SATIRE: University Now Won’t Allow You to SAY Something Is ‘Politically Correct’). Well, in honor of Christm…I’m sorry…The End Of The Fiscal Year, leftists have gifted us with yet another knee-slapper…
A Connecticut principal is siding with political correctness over school spirit by injecting race relations into a student chant.
Students at East Hampton High school have chanted “blue” and “white” – school colors – for years, but principal John Fidler thinks the word “white” could be construed as racist, so he posted a notice that the cheer is “under suspension,” WFSB reports.
Fidler thinks the word “white” alone is offensive to some folks.
“Given the current social climate across our country, our use of the ‘white’ cheer is under suspension,” he wrote in a notice ahead of the winter sports season. “Please show your pride in our town and in our school through other means when cheering on our teams.”
So the color “white” itself might be taken as offensive? Because it’s a word in “white supremacy?” Well, I guess the school had better ban the word “blue” while they’re at it. You know, safe side and all. Wouldn’t want to be mistaken for being Smurf supremacists and incur the wrath of Gargamel now, would they?
Honest question: if the school is on a crusade against the word “white” will they also torch anything which needs to be described as “white”? Such as paper, shirts, walls, book pages, the space between margins on a book page, milk, Apple charge cables, toilet paper, toilets themselves, and those handy nose-wipes more commonly referred to as “tissues.” All these things I just listed are white. So if the word “white” is so triggering, perhaps it’s time the school purge anything which needs to use the word “white” to describe it. So long toilet paper.
Yes, I know he’s just banning the word “white” in a school cheer. But how long before the word “white” needs to be banned everywhere else? Follow the absurdity trail all the way to completion to see just how ludicrous banning a word is.
Ideas. Just ideas.
Is the principal a leftist? Beats me. It could just be the guy is under constant threat of having his rear-end chewed into hamburger meat. By pudgy left-wing lesbians with green armpit hair. Mmm, snack time. Hey lefties gotta fuel up. Keeping that hate speech off campus requires energy, bruh.
The left has policed language and culture to the point where administrators and employers have to ban things preemptively. Not because they’re giant bundles of care themselves. But rather because they’re living in a constant state of fear. Fear of getting beaten with the flaps of fat hanging from leftists’ underarms who insist they care about tolerance and diversity. Fear of being fired from their jobs for simply voicing an opinion which might run contrary to the progressive decrees (read Canadian Teacher FIRED. For Being Pro-Life…). To say something a sensitive lefty finds in anyway triggering is Verboten.
So as we approach
Christmas the holidays, remember to adhere to political correctness. Especially you white color that shall not be named people. Avoid the fat flaps.
Speaking of PC…
