Sticks ‘n Stones….you must ATONE…

This is worth sending to everyone you know;  a great description of the insanity of Political Correctness, how bullying toughened us up in the days of old so we could grow and mature, and how overly sensitive we’ve become….to the point of ridiculousness.   Tell me one incident which you think any of this has actually helped.

Where do we go from here?  Any antidote as long as liberals who created this monster exist and still don’t get what they’ve done?

HELP.

    I can’t believe that YouTube hasn’t banned this hurt space video yet. Growing up with 3 brothers and a sister, I became immune to microaggressions before I could walk. Then the school years and macroaggressions. After retiring from fist fighting with a lifetime record of .500, I quickly learned that “you win a few, lose a few”, and the ones you lost could hurt a lot. This lesson reinforces “sticks and stones”. It was a tried and true system until the progressive hippies came along and screwed things up.

    Reminds me of a blog post I saw titled “Reagan always got it RIGHT” talking about a “shift” in America from holding individuals responsible for their actions to blaming society for all transgressions and behavioral aberrations.

    Made me go look for a rant I did some time back on the same subject, but I couldn’t find it. Found a lotta words that dribbled outta the ends of my fingers on the general topic, but not the partic’lar blurb I was lookin for.

    What I know is that we are no longer a nation of do-ers, but a rabble of takers. Gone are the confidence, the enterprise, the energy, the resourcefulness, the creativity.

    We don’t build anything any more; what we do is buy things, and on borrowed money. Our government doesn’t understand public service any more; what they do is provide self service to their own careers and lip service to the rest of us.

    We don’t command respect any more; we encourage contempt. We don’t honor our obligations any more; we kick the can down the road and raise the debt ceiling.

    The sassiness of the post-war euphoria has been replaced by snottiness of the entitlement mentality.

    The push-the-envelope boldness of a world leader has been replaced by the political correctness of a wimp organizer.

    The trust in government which won WWII for us has been replaced by a lust for power which gridlocks progress.

    The accountability of our forefathers has been replaced by contemptibility for custom and tradition.

    Family has been replaced by artificiality, honor has been replaced by terror, and reverence has been replaced by ambivalence.

    The modern-day American resembles the people who built this country in about the same way that modern-day Italians resemble the Romans who once conquered their entire known world.

    All you can really do is teach your own kids not to fall for that junk.

    You can choose whether or not words hurt. Except when you’re faced with rageful haters who know you have to pay for your words which offend them.

    An excellent video and thoughtful presentation. Where do we go? We push back against the insanity.

    And Tom Shillue isn’t even 50 yet (born 1966) and recalls the days before liberalism started to run amok. Tom was around 10 in 1976, when he ignored bullies calling him names. This was when the Women’s Army Corp (WACs) was dissolved, and women were integrated fully into all non-combat units in the U.S. Army. It was still OK in 1976 to tell gay jokes (gay was not the term back then, it was ‘homo’), but women jokes all but disappeared.

    Smoking commercials had disappeared from TV by 1976. “Winstons taste good like a cigarette should.” Or, ‘I’d rather fight than switch.” Tareyton showed people with black eyes clinging to their packs of Tareytons. Can you imagine an ad agency coming up with that pitch today? They’d be arrested.

    Ahh, the good ol’ days, when everybody was meaner than a snake. I miss them.

    Fredd, the old cigarette commercials you mentioned reminded me of a cartoon I saw of a U.S. fighter jet streaking down toward an Arab on a racing camel, with the words “I’d fly a thousand miles to “smoke” a Camel.”
    About today’s blog, yes, we definitely have swung way too far to the left with P.C. and I don’t see it changing anytime soon, sad to say.

    What everyone else said plus too many kids are not getting the anti-gravity pat on the butt from their dad – if they even have a dad.
