    Dreary Woko-Drips Stain Stanford 


    Having observed Oxford and Cambridge dredge down to ever new depths of self-debasement…

    Oxoniental Obeisance…Stinks! 

    .Poor Little Bronwen!

    .Cambridge – Clare College’s Crawling Creeps 

    Wot Next? Oxbridge Obliterated? Project Fear Gets Nuttier! 

    …..

    (while the ‘Conservative’ government refuses to use public purse-strings to bring the academic klutzes to heel)

    ….

    …now we see that an American university, once of great distinction, has stained its stellar reputation…

    .

    .

    ….by proscribing perfectly good ‘words and phrases for being “culturally appropriative” – which evidently means upsetting Red Indians…

    .

    ..

    …of the nasty, uptight variety.

    Bury the hatchet” is excised because it appropriates “a centuries-old tradition among some North American indigenous peoples”. It should be replaced by “call a truce”.

    Similarly, a “pow wow” becomes a “get together...”

    Oh, and not just Indians of the redskin sort.

    Mustn’t call a “guru” an expert, to avoid negating a word seen as a sign of respect 

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/world-news/2022/12/20/stanford-university-cancels-dozens-harmful-words-phrases-avoid/

    Those examples are infantile, of course, but IMHO the idiocy about ‘ableism‘ is even worse.

    .

    Examples?

    0000

    “blind study” – which “furthers an ableist culture” – becomes a “masked study”

    Woops!

    Doesn’t that ‘masked’ impinge on burka culture?

    “tone deaf” because it trivialises disabilities. Unenlightened, however, is acceptable.

    That leaves me speechless – or should I say ‘tone-dumb?

    0000

    Talk about pathetic!

    Who cares if some jerks with hang-ups get weepy?

    Leave our rich and vivid English language alone!

    Why Stick Up For Dead Red Picasso? 


    Museums have long been wary of this period in the artist’s professional life. In an era of ‘cancellation’, it is even more pertinent…

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/art/artists/picassos-primtivist-art-still-acceptable/

    Ooo

    Portrait de Picasso, 1908.jpg

    Picasso in 1908

    Far be it from me to roll up my sleeves on behalf of a long-dead Red – and make no mistake, Picasso was as slimy a Communist as ever there was!

    .…his commitment to the French Communist party (PCF), which he joined in 1944, with great fanfare, and never left.. https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2010/may/08/pablo-picasso-politics-exhibition-tate

    Nor have I ever had a high opinion of his infantile daubing, reminiscent of an excitable 5-year-old’s paint play-time, like that ‘Guernica’ propaganda picture.

    But the quote at the top of the page refers to the fact that because Picasso, among other arty types….

    …thought it might be creative to draw inspiration from ‘African’ influences, some whiney sorts are accusing him of some sin akin to ‘cultural appropriation….’

    .

    .

    ..a heinous sin, which we have looked at more than once in recent years.

    How To Lose Friends At Hallowe’en! 

    Tranny Granny? Why Are Pinkos So Humourless? 

    What it boils down to is the essentially racist notion that White people should not emulate Black people’s art, culture, clothing or even hair-styles!

    Now would those who resent Picasso’s drawing on Africa for inspiration be similarly aghast if a Congolese or Kenyan artist mimicked Rembrandt, or Hogarth?

    I tend to think not.

    It’s a bit like like ‘reverse racism.’

    CBC says racism against white people “doesn’t exist” https://tnc.news/2022/03/25/cbc-says-racism-against-white-people-doesnt-exist/

    Cultural marxist creeps…

    …like those who control Canada’s tax-funded propaganda system, have the nerve to deny such a concept is possible!

    But let’s go back to hair-styles.

    .

    .

    While art critics are not usually into violent behaviour, the ‘cultural appropriation’ nonsense is a kind of cancer, which can spread and pose deadly danger to innocent people

    No?

    Read on, please.

    Ms Jenner’s Hair-Style Generates An Uppity Gale! 


    I’m not at all sure why anything Miss Kylie Jenner says or does should matter enough to make headlines.

    She’s a comely enough wench, true.

    But It turns out that the ‘Independent,’ a UK leftist newspaper, which helps me out by explaining who she is –

     …the reality television star reportedly shared then deleted a picture on Instagram…

     – thinks her hair-style merits media prominence!

    0000

    KYLIE JENNER ACCUSED OF CULTURAL APPROPRIATION FOR WEARING HAIR IN TWISTS

    Some uppity moron ‘critic’ is then quoted thus –

    Celebrating the biggest era of cultural appropriation in modern pop history…’

    Same with this other, Twittering, uppity..

    “The cultural appropriation jumped out. Disgusting!” 

    000000

    up·pi·ty
    /ˈəpədē/

    adjective

    INFORMAL. – self-important; arrogant.

    Oxford Dictionary

    ..

    Only in the past few years has the term ‘cultural appropriation’ been introduced by cultural marxists aka pinko twits, further to degrade the language of Shakespeare.

    It’s been used to torment people ‘inappropriately’ wearing sombreros, Red Indian war-bonnets, etc…

    =

    Not Kylie Jenner, this photo has no particular relevance, but she’s a yummy and if it annoys pinkos, all the better!

    =

    ….and funnily enough it’s almost always been invoked to persecute white people, merely for having fun at fancy-dress parties or Hallowe’en.

    Pinko Killjoys Target Hallowe’en

    Hair-styles are a personal choice, not to be dictated by uppity racists, black or white!

    How the girl wears her hair is entirely her business.

    My own ever-diminishing hair makes it an academic issue at a personal level…

    …but even were I as hirsute as a Haight-Ashbury hippy in the Sixties, I would not contemplate appearing in public like this…

    000

    …but it’s Miss Jenner’s business, just as it would be a black girl’s business if she goes to a salon and has her cute curly hair straightened.

    Snarky, nasty comments, like those from ‘critics’ above, are pure insolence, from badly brought up twerps who never got taught good manners.

    O

    O

    The sheer naked racism of some comments is nauseating.

    “I don’t find it as a compliment because my people still are losing jobs and viewed as ‘ghetto’ for protective hairstyles, while most white people see it as fashion..”

    ‘My People?’

    By that, one expects the writer to mean Canadian, or British, or American.

    .

    O

    Sadly that dork, or dorkess, clearly sees everything through a racist lens.

    October 14th Election? One In The Eye For Whom? 


    Ignoring much of the asinine opinions expressed in the Guardian this week…

    ..and by God this week’s pages were positively infested by imbecilic ranters, like that ugly uppity Un-Australian Yapper, Yassim Abdel-Magied…

    .

    Far-Left’s Anti-Migrant Ranting Deafens Australia! 

    …who went nuts because another lefty luminary showed a tine wee bit of sense, viz.,

    ..the argument became a tirade. It became about the fact that a white man should be able to write the experience of a young Nigerian woman and if he sells millions and does a “decent” job — in the eyes of a white woman — he should not be questioned or pilloried in any way.

    All together, now, YAWN!

    ….

    It became about mocking those who ask people to seek permission to use their stories.  https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/sep/10/as-lionel-shriver-made-light-of-identity-i-had-no-choice-but-to-walk-out-on-her

    ..

    And Malignant Magied’s hogwash howl is only arguably the most deranged drivel the Guardian thinks worth inflicting on readers!

    Get this!

    Life began for me as a queer teenager amid the happy excesses of Great Yarmouth

    The editors apparently imagine that there are people remotely interested in reading about a sexual deviant’s adolescent antics!

    However….

    That, all that, above, is just a kindly mental-health warning – avoid the Guardian.

    It does stress you out after a very short perusal of its pearls of pinko wisdom.

    Today, it’s BORIS, or at least his alleged scheming, that I want, very briefly, to look at, and in particular…

    .

    Boris Johnson to seek 14 October election if rebels succeed, says government source – as it happened

    …I was fascinated by the announcement of the date of the next UK election.

    October 14th!

    As we noted two years ago…

    October 14th – Hastings Day, As England Faces Invasion 

    ——

    ——

    …that’s the anniversary of the Battle of Hastings!

    So can we read the runes of history to predict the outcome?

    Will Boris be blind-sided by Europhiliac renegades…

    …and the realm continue to be ruled from abroad?

    Be cool!

    History is a valuable tool for those Brits wishing to learn what mistakes should be avoided when fighting off enemies across the Channel.

    But anniversaries, unless forgotten by unwise husbands, are not indicators of what happens next!

    Pinko Killjoys Target Hallowe'en, Once Again! 


    And here we go again, infantile uptights into their annual whining exercise about Hallowe’en,

    A brief glance at previous years, like when the University of Florida offered ’24/7 counselling’ to students ‘troubled’ by somebody else’s Hallowe’en costume.

    “If you choose to participate in Halloween activities, we encourage you to think about your choices of costumes and themes,” the school wrote.

    “Some Halloween costumes reinforce stereotypes of particular races, genders, cultures, or religions. Regardless of intent, these costumes can perpetuate negative stereotypes, causing harm and offense to groups of people.”

    =

    …schemes drawn up by students, academics and college administrators, none of whom would be any the worse for a brain transplant from a mentally retarded newt. .

    A campus magazine at Ohio State University has a similar flow chart this year, with a similar racial element.

    Again, white people cannot dress up as a person from another race, but non-white people may.

    =

    This photo has no particular relevance, but she’s a yummy and if it annoys pinkos, all the better!

    So white kids can’t go trick or treating as complementary pairs of Cowboys and Indians? But black kids can?

    Good old days indeed – look at those 1956 prices!

    ====

    And we mustn’t disrespect followers of Wicca?

    I thought Hallowe’en was a fun day for everyone – it used to be!

    The chart also adds a political element. It asks “Is it politically charged?” and, if the answer is yes, the next question is “Does it make fun of Donald Trump?” From there the only option is “yes,” and the result is “DO IT.”

    Hallowe’en In USA – The Season of the Witch? 


    Hasil gambar untuk halloween 2016

    ———————-

    I used to love Hallowe’en when I was a kid – they do it much better in North America, and in those days nobody worried much about kids going to and fro after dark.

    Nor did we have imbeciles babbling bollox about who might erupt into tantrum-mode if you donned a sombrero or wore an Indian (NOT bloody ‘Native American’) war-bonnet.

    The neurotic nincompoop who invented the crack-pot catch-phrase ‘cultural appropriation’ was probably not even born back in those wholesome times.

    —————

    But back then we stuck to ACTUALLY appropriate costumes – good old-fashioned ghosts in sheets, and witches.

    Hallowe’en is about the supernatural, after all, the night before All Saint’s Day, when demonic activity abounds. A lot of us children believed ‘they’ might be out there in the dark! 

    Hence God-fearing parents would reassure us, as we toddled off, eagerly but yet warily, to trick-or-treat the neighbours…

    ..there were NO SUCH THINGS! 

     

    Little did we know that parents can be wrong.

    But no worries…just enjoy the party!

    This is not an issue that would normally catch my eye, but somebody sent it to me as an example of PC imbecility, and I must agree.

    —————————

    The concept of cultural appropriation has become a frequent topic of conversation..

    Oh yeah?

    Where?

    I’ve never heard it talked about on the angkot, or in the warteg, where normal Indonesian people mingle. Nor in any bar where expats hang out. I suspect this cultural marxist hogwash term is only ever used among creepoid pinkos.

    They make up this kind of pseudo-language, then get paid to whine about it. It’s a growth industry, really – one of that writer’s ideological clones boasts of her commercial enterprise in a letter to the Huff Post supporting the silliness –

    I engage in cultural sensitivity, cultural responsiveness, and bullying prevention workshops at schools, corporations, correctional facilities and other organizations, through my publishing and consulting company

    Neat trick, pinkos.

    …but still, the fashion world continues to make the most painfully obtuse, racially insensitive editorial decisions….

    I don’t have a lot of hair myself, these days, so there’s no personal stake in this debate, but one might think how people wear their hair is nobody’s business but their own, and certainly none of this uppity sticky-beak’s. 

    When white women wear black hairstyles, it’s a slap in the face to black women…. 

    Grow up, silly cow! Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

    A slap in the face?

    Personally, I like girls with typical Indonesian glossy straight black hair, but some of them like to tint their locks reddish or blondish or even pink. No sweat.

    Afro styling is not my cup of tea, but I wouldn’t crawl over a cutie with an Afro to get to Hilary Clinton!

    Many black girls have straight hair, and look ‘cool’ enough to my admiring eye.

    There follows a right royal rant about slavery, white supremacy…I think she missed out lynchings but I’m not sure, the rant was so turgid I wearied of reading it.
