PC ALERT: HOW IS IT THAT AMERICAN COLLEGES WHEN FROM BASTIONS OF FREE SPEECH AND THOUGHT TO PC SPEECH AND NO THOUGHT?
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld appeared on ‘The Herd’ with Colin Cowherd when he made a rather remarkable and honest comment. Seinfeld said that comedians have told him to not do comedy at college campuses because they are so politically correct now. He went on to say tat colleges students throw out words like “sexist” and “racist” without knowing what those words actually mean.
When did America become so easily offended? Political correctness is not only ruining comedy, its ruining America.
However, before Jerry Seinfeld is given a medal for anti-PC speech, isn’t he the same individual who canceled on a Donald Trump Foundation event that benefited the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital because Trump questioned whether Obama was born in America? Hey Jerry, why so serious?
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld appeared on ESPNU and ESPN Radio’s “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” on Thursday and spoke on how other comedians have told him to not do comedy at college campuses because they are so politically correct now.
According to Seinfeld, people do not even know what they are talking about when they throw out terms such as “racist” or “sexist” and this has made its way into colleges, making them too politically correct to do comedy.
“I don’t play colleges but I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges, they’re so pc.’ My daughter’s 14. My wife says to her, ‘Well, you know, in the next couple of years, I think maybe you’re going to want to hang around the city more on the weekends so you can see boys.’ You know, my daughter says, ‘That’s sexist.’ They just want to use these words. ‘That’s racist. That’s sexist. That’s prejudice.’ They don’t even know what they’re talking about.”
Liberal Comedian Bill Maher Rips Deeply Stupid PC Liberals Like Media Matters … “Hey Media Matters Can I say One Thing to You, Shut the F*ck Up”
WOW, Uber-lib Bill Maher tells Media Matters to STFU …
What has happened lately to Bill Maher and his “fair & balanced” approach when it comes to criticizing liberals? During his most recent episode of HBO’s ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’ … the far Left liberal comedian ripped into “deeply stupid” PC liberals who cant take a joke and even went so far as to tell the far-LEFT Media Matters to “shut the f*ck up”. Go figure. Of course Maher’s idea of fair and balanced is mocking liberals 20% of the time on his show and conservatives 80%, up from 5% and 95%.
Maher said just like conservatives, liberals have crazies of their own they need to rein in. He brought up the controversy over the Economist cover on Latinos and how Media Matters covered it. The liberal media watchdog called it “a tired trope often used to confine the Hispanic community to oversimplified representation in the media.”
Maher reacted by telling Media Matters to “shut the f*ck up.”
He remarked, “How deeply stupid has the far-left become,” and said liberals just need to stop freaking out about every single little thing that doesn’t 100 percent conform to their worldview.
(VIDEO WARNING: Strong language)
Comedian Bill Maher went on a fiery diatribe against “deeply stupid” politically correct wing of liberalism on his show Friday, at one point telling far-left Media Matters to “shut the f*** up” with its fake outrage. Maher is very liberal himself and his comedic attacks are mostly aimed at Republicans and conservatives, but every now and then he goes after the left .
“Yes, we joke about everybody here. And that’s something a lot of liberals have forgotten how to do,” he added. “For folks who take such pride in their love of diversity, liberals increasingly seem to tolerate none in their own ranks. I don’t necessarily agree with Dolce and Gabbana, but what is the point of attacking people who are 95 percent on your side?”
He went on to mock celebrities like Courtney Love and Elton John who boycotted the brand over the comments.
But far-left Media Matters, a progressive media “watchdog,” got the brunt of Maher’s wrath for feigning outrage at an Economist cover that featured an American flag made of red peppers. Maher said the site claimed the cover “the sort of stereotype that ignores Latinos as a multifaceted community and relegates them to chili pepper consuming constituents.”
“Media Matters, can I say one thing to you? Shut the f*** up,” Maher said.
Wright State University President Apoligizes for Black History Month Menu Featuring Fried Chicken & Collard Greens
AM I MISSING SOMETHING, IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE A JOKE. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS REACHES A NEW STUPIDITY … FRIED CHICKEN AND COLLARD GREENS ARE AUTHENTIC SOUL FOOD?
Wright State University president David Hopkins and its dining services vendor have apologized for creating a menu for Black History month that included fried chicken and collard greens. HUH? The menu consisted of fried chicken, collard greens, mashed potatoes and cornbread. Okay, I am still missing the problem, was it the fact that potatoes are not ethnic? This is just another example that some people will complain about anything and will forever be a victim, no matter what. Supposedly, Billy Barabino, a senior organizational leadership major from New Jersey and president of the Black Student Union was offended saying the following, “I was really hurt (by the menu). Extremely hurt.” For me, it was a knock in the face for African (and) African- American individuals who have fought for us to be progressive. I was extremely offended by it because it minimizes who we are as people.” Dude, did anyone tell you that this type of food is your heritage? Isn’t that the point of Black History month, to honor the black heritage and culture in America?
A note to Billy Barabino and the rest of the victims, you do realize that fried chicken, hog maw, collard greens, ham hocks, black-eyed peas, okra, turnip greens, cornbread, Hoecake, Hoppin John, fatback and chitlins are all authentic African-American soul food, right? You might want to try some fried catfish, chicken and dumplings or Collar Greens with Ham Hocks. Instead of complaining about being offended, maybe you might want to try them, they are actually good. Amen to the folks over at The Last Tradition, PC Stupidity when Liberals at Wright State University feel Fried Chicken and Collard Greens is offensive cuisine for Black history month.
After a menu featuring fried chicken and collard greens under a photo of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and other African American leaders for Black History Month, the president of Wright State University in Ohio and its dining services vendor have apologized.
The Dayton Daily News reported that images were circulated on social media, calling it offensive and disrespectful.
President David Hopkins wrote in an email of the university’s commitment to diversity and pride at hosting the Phoenix Project and forum featuring daughters of several civil rights leaders. Hopkins said he would find out why a menu sign included chicken, mashed potatoes, collard greens and cornbread under a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. and other famous black figures, according to the Dayton Daily News.
“I apologize to anyone hurt by the display,” Hopkins wrote in an email. “To our credit, the menu was quickly removed. But the larger question remains: Why was it done? I will find out. We will take steps to prevent this kind of behavior occurring in the future.”
Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services released a statement that read, in part:
“Chartwells celebrates many national events on campus and tries to provide authentic and traditional cuisine to reflect each theme. In no way was the promotion associated with Black History Month meant to be insensitive. We could have done a better job putting this in context of a cultural dining experience. We sincerely apologize.”
I am still trying to figure out how this idiot Billy Barabino is extremely hurt and exactly what action do you plan to take? How exactly is having on a menu, that which is ethnic food that blacks have ate in the past and continue to do so offensive and not an effort in diversity? Seriously, does Billy not understand that is his history? Are you telling me that the many times that I have gone to friends houses that are black and we ate fried chicken, collard greens, black-eyed peas, black-eyed peas, fried okra, turnip greens and cornbread, we were being racist? Maybe some one should tell my black friends. I hate to break it to you Billy Barabino but no one of your ancestors in the United States were eating Kapenta with sadza and Namibian venison.
I guess Billy doesn’t get too much soul food in Jersey.
I can’t wait until the Irish complain that they are offended and extremely hurt on St. Patrick’s Day when when the food vender serve corned-beef and cabbage, boxty, and Shepherd’s Pie.
Or in March during Greek-American Heritage Month when the Greek students conduct boycotts and “no justice, no peace” protests in the cafeteria when they serve Moussaka, Baklava, Tzatziki and Gyros.
And in May during Asian Pacific American History Month don’t even think about serving rice.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd Gives a Reporter a Lesson in Political Correctness … “Make No Mistake About It, There’s Nothing About Politically Correct in a Gun Fight.”
HERO OF THE WEEK … Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.
A manhunt was underway for four suspects who killed two people in the home, a mother and daughter, who, Judd said, were “viciously murdered” in a manner “much too graphic to describe.” People were asked to stay in their homes, as hundreds of officers, including SWAT teams, scoured a Central Florida neighborhood for armed and dangerous men after a suspected robbery, high-speed chase and double homicide overnight. Finally, the police got their men as all four suspects were arrested and are now in custody. However, it was what Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said afterwards in a police press conference that people need to heed. A lily-livered, spineless member of the MSM asked the sheriff the following question, “Some of the comments you made last night about shooting the suspects, possibly, and the comments today about ‘ready for a gunfight’ — was that in the heat of the moment? Do you have any regret about that?” Are you kidding? Thankfully, the media is not responsible to protect and serve the public.
Needless to say Sheriff Grady Judd responded in a manner that should make all people of his country feel safe and secure, just like how you don’t bring a knife to a gun fight, you don’t bring political correctness either.
“I not only have no regret, I’m pretty excited about telling you that — that’s exactly what would’ve happened,” Judd shot back. “Make no mistake about it, there’s nothing about politically correct in a gun fight. There’s nothing about politically correct when you are keeping people alive and well and safe. And the people of this community and these law enforcement officers come first.”
“I meant every word of it then, and I mean every word of it now,” he added. “If you surrender peacefully, that’s the way we prefer it. You start pointing guns at us, you can not only plan on, but you can guarantee that we are going to shoot you.”
Male Passenger Thrown Off American Airlines Plane After PC Scrooge Flippied Out After Airline Staff Says ‘Merry Christmas’
MAYBE THE NEXT TIME YOU FLY, YOU WILL CONSIDER TAKING AMERICAN AIRLINES, I KNOW I WILL …
A male passenger was tossed off an American Airlines plane at La Guardia Airport in New York on Tuesday after he flipped out and took offense to being wished a Merry Christmas by airline staff. The idiot went mental when he was greeted not once, but twice by American Airline personnel with a “Merry Christmas.” Instead of just smiling and accepting the greetings, the passenger had to spew his PC bullsh*t and then went on a rant that not everyone celebrates Christmas and lectured them that they should not say it. This fool would not stop and was in turn thrown off the plane. Good for the folks at American Airlines. As the Grinch was escorted off the plane, the other passengers cheered and applauded. Hell, had I been on the plane I would have led the others on board in a rendition of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” serenading the jerk off the plane.
A passenger was tossed off a plane at La Guardia Airport on Tuesday after flipping out — because airline workers wished him a merry Christmas.
The man was waiting to board American Airlines Flight 1140 to Dallas when a cheerful gate agent began welcoming everyone with the Yuletide greeting while checking boarding passes.
The grumpy passenger, who appeared to be traveling alone, barked at the woman, “You shouldn’t say that because not everyone celebrates Christmas.”
Once on the plane, he was warmly greeted by a flight attendant who also wished him a “merry Christmas.” That was the last straw.
“Don’t say, ‘Merry Christmas!’?” the man raged before lecturing the attendants and the pilot about their faux pas.
He was escorted off the plane as other fliers burst into cheers and applause.
I am all for freedom of speech, but some time people just need to STFU. No body cares that one person on a plane full of people, traveling on the day before Christmas, gets offended by being wished a Merry Christmas. At some point the 99.9% of people do not need to have their lives impacted by the opinions of one idiot. Congratulations to American Airlines for doing the right thing.
Woman Beheaded in Oklahoma at Vaughan Foods by Muslim Convert (Update: Suspect, Alton Nolen Shot by CO’s COO … Victim Colleen Hufford)
Please do not insult our intelligence and call this work place violence …
30 year old Alton Nolen was arrested after stabbing and beheading, yes you read that correctly, beheading 54 year old Colleen Hufford with a knife at Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma. Nolen then began stabbing 43 year old Traci Johnson before he was shot by Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff’s deputy and the company’s COO. But wait, before the PC police and media struggle as to motive and try and say that this is an act of workplace violence from an angry, recently fired employee let the commonsense facts present the obvious. First, Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis stated that recently Alton Nolen, a Muslim covert himself, had started trying to convert several employees to Islam. Second, exactly who these days beheads individuals with knives? Third, Nolen was a convert to Islam. So please, spare us the BS that this was strictly a horrible incidence of workplace violence, the savage brutality of the killing reeks of the violence and savagery of recent ISIS beheadings.
A man fired from an Oklahoma food processing plant beheaded a woman with a knife and was attacking another worker when he was shot and wounded by a company official, police said Friday.
Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said police are waiting until Alton Nolen, 30, is conscious to arrest him in Thursday’s attack and have asked the FBI to help investigate after co-workers at Vaughan Foods in the south Oklahoma City suburb told authorities that he recently started trying to convert several employees to Islam.
Nolen severed the head of Colleen Hufford, 54, Lewis said.
“Yes, she was beheaded,” Lewis told The Associated Press before a Friday news conference.
Lewis said Nolen then stabbed Traci Johnson, 43, a number of times before Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff’s deputy and the company’s chief operating officer, shot him.
Let’s be honest and rid ourselves of the PC filter of the media and even law enforcement … if a murder looks like Islamic jihad and smells like Islamic jihad … IT IS ISLAMIC JIHAD AND A TERRORIST ACT IN THE NAME OF ALLAH. However, the MSM like CBS News in the video below will have you believe that this was just simple workplace violence.
CBS News: Police: Woman beheaded at Oklahoma workplace:
Police say a woman who was killed by a co-worker at a food distribution center in suburban Oklahoma City was beheaded and that witnesses have said the suspect had been trying to convince co-workers to convert to Islam.
But authorities say the killing was motivated by the suspect’s firing, rather than any pre-planned act of terror.
Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said Friday that 30-year-old Alton Nolen had been terminated from Vaughan Foods in Moore, where he worked as a production line employee, shortly before the incident took place on Thursday afternoon.
Colleen Hufford, 54, was beheaded and another woman, 43-year-old Traci Johnson, was stabbed. Both victims were employees of Vaughan Foods, but according to Lewis, it appeared the women were not targeted and were instead stabbed at random.
The FBI is involved in the investigation and is currently conducting a background investigation into Nolen, Lewis said.
According to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections website, Nolen has a criminal history dating back to 2006 that includes charges of possession of a controlled substance and assault and battery on a police officer.
He was imprisoned from April 2011 to March 2013 and is currently listed as being on probation.
Random Robbery or Hate Crime: 60 Year Old Brooklyn Orthodox Rabbi Joseph Raksin Gunned Down & Murdered While Walking to Bais Menachem Synagogue Saturday Morning in Northeast Miami-Dade, FL
Random robbery gone wrong or Hate Crime?
Joseph Raksin, a 60 year old rabbi from Brooklyn, NY who was visiting family, was gunned down and murdered as he was walking to a Northeast Miami-Dade synagogue at about 9 am Saturday for Temple services. The two young, black teen males fled the crime scene and are currently being sought by police. The shooting victim was airlifted to the Ryder Trauma Center, where he later died from his wounds. Police stated that Raksin was walking eastbound on Northeast 175th Street and Eighth Court when he was confronted by two young men and gunned down after an altercation in what was most likely a random robbery attempt.
A 60-year-old Orthodox rabbi from Brooklyn on his way to a Northeast Miami-Dade synagogue was gunned down Saturday morning during a likely random robbery attempt, according to Miami-Dade police and local Jewish community leaders.
The shooting victim, Joseph Raksin, was walking eastbound on Northeast 175th Street and Eighth Court at about 9 a.m. when he was confronted by two young men. Following an altercation, Raksin was shot by one of the men, police said.
The authorities were quick to call this a random act of violence as Miami-Dade police spokeswoman Elena Hernandez in a statement,“At this time there is no indication of this being a hate crime.” However, that is not what is being said from Yona Lunger, a local Jewish community activist and member of the Shmira Patrol, a neighborhood watch group. According to accounts, Lunger spoke to one witness who told him, that contrary to what Miami-Dade police reported, Raksin had no altercation with the two young men. Raskin was shot immediately after the two approached him on Northeast 175th Street. Also, The shocking crime took place in broad daylight was just a few blocks away from Torah V’Emunah, an Orthodox synagogue where swastikas were spray painted last month. Coincidence?
Raksin was on his way to Bais Menachem, 1005 NE 172nd Ter., when he was shot, said Lunger, who spoke to one witness who told him that — contrary to what Miami-Dade police reported — Raksin had no altercation with the two young men. He said the witness, whom he did not identify, told him that Raksin was shot immediately after the two approached him on Northeast 175th Street.
Another local Jewish community leader, Brian Siegal, director of the American Jewish Committee’s Miami and Broward Regional Office, said he believes Raksin’s shooting may be connected to the recent act of vandalism at the nearby Torah V’Emunah, an Orthodox synagogue, 1000 NE 174th St.
Two points to ponder with this story as to whether it was or was not a hate crime. First, other than the VIDEO from NBC News 6 above, no where is it referenced that the two murder suspects were two black teens. Also, just curious, would the police have been so quick to discount this as a hate crime if the murder victim was a religious leader with the name of Abdul or Mohammed? But of course that is the double standard we with in this politically correct world.
More Liberal White Guilt … PC Police Look to Change US Military Helicopter’s Racist Names like Apache, Comanche, Chinook, Lakota, Cheyenne & Kiowa
When will this PC nonsense end … Now PC police going after the Apache helicopter.
How can it possibly be deemed racist to name a protector of America freedom an Apache helicopter? Or is it just more liberal white guilt on behalf of Native Americans? One would think that any group would be honored to be named after something that protects freedom.
Veterans aren’t happy with a recent op-ed by the Washington Post, which charged that the Apache, Comanche, Chinook, Lakota, Cheyenne and Kiowa military vehicles were a “greater symbolic injustice” than the NFL’s Washington Redskins’ name.
“Even if the NFL and Redskins brass come to their senses and rename the team, a greater symbolic injustice would continue to afflict Indians — an injustice perpetuated not by a football club but by our federal government,” Simon Waxman of the Boston Review wrote for the Post on Thursday.
He added that the helicopter names were “propaganda” that needed to end, because Native American life expectancy statistics indicate the “violence is ongoing, even if the guns are silent.”
Readers at the popular military news gathering website Doctrine Man reacted Friday.
“I suspect that the author is less unhappy that our choppers have Indian names, and more unhappy that there is a U.S. military,” wrote Alex Kuhns.
Oh yeah, add in the Black Hawk, named for a leader of the Sauk tribe. Don’t forget there is the Tomahawk, a low-altitude missile, and a drone named for an Indian chief, Gray Eagle and Operation Geronimo was the end of Osama bin Laden. So my first question is Black Hawk, eh? Dies that mean the PC police is going after the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks next? Second, Exactly how is a name like Apache, Comanche, etc racist? I guess these fools will soon be going after Winnebago RV ‘Braves”.
Political Correctness Has Jumped the Shark … Hump Day Camel now Considered Racist & Racially Insensitive
Political Correctness Has Jumped the
Shark Camel … WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN: PC EDITION.
The latest absurd PC reaction comes from the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota and their “HUMP DAY” event. A group of students had planned to bring a camel to the “Hump” day event; however, the event was canceled. Some clueless students thought that bringing a camel would be considered racist and offensive and racially insensitive to Middle Eastern cultures. I think all I have to say to both sides is grow a set. It’s a frigging camel you so-called college educated fools. Hump Day, camel’s hump, get the connection? Maybe the RHA should have brought to the event a Humpback whale, or Quasimodo or Igor from Young Frankenstein? But some how I think the subtlety would be lost on the ignorant or some one would have been offended by individuals with humps.
Enough is enough, I am sick and tired of running everyday life over who might be offended. Newsflash, there will always be some one that will be offended by something. Imagine if we never produced a drug to help people survive with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, high cholesterol and any other malady because of the side affects harmed just one person? Ever take a look at any drug and the long list of side affects? That is what PC has become in the United States. You know what is offensive, kidnapping girls and forcing Islam upon them and selling them into sex slavery, honor killing and sentencing a pregnant Christian woman to death by hanging for leaving Islam. THAT’S OFFENSIVE!!!
BTW, no one seemed to find the used of a bull or a pie eating contest at the Southern Hospitality event. How offensive, are you saying people from the South are obese and are rednecks who just ride mechanical bulls like in the movie Urban Cowboy? But I guess that is different.
The “Hump Day” event, put on by the Residence Hall Association (RHA), was supposed to be “a petting zoo type of atmosphere” in which students could hang out and take photos with a live camel. According to Aaron Macke, the group’s advisor, the camel is owned by a local vendor and trained for special events.
But the event was subsequently cancelled after students took to Facebook to proclaim their concerns. The students said they were concerned about the money spent on bringing the camel to campus—around $500—and the implication that it would be racially insensitive to Middle Eastern cultures.
The Facebook group called “Protest Hump DAAAAAAY!” had more than 100 RSVP’d attendees before it was deleted on Wednesday.
“RHA’s goal in programming is to bring residents together in a fun and safe environment where all people can enjoy themselves,” RHA president Lindsay Goodwin said in a statement on RHA’s Facebook page. “It appears however, this program is dividing people and would make for an uncomfortable and possibly unsafe environment for everyone attending or providing the program. As a result, RHA has decided to cancel the event.”
GET REAL!!! I guess you are going to tell is that the GEICO “Guess what day it is” Hump day commercial is racist and culturally insensitive as well? Come on folks, is this the kind of people that we are breading in colleges today? No one had a picture of Allah and placed it in urine or spread feces on it. No one burned a Koran. No one had a scene of Allah with a camel in a compromising position. All those would be considered offensive. However, when the same things are done with Jesus Christ or the Virgin Mary, it is called free speech art.
Bill Maher says, Liberals can be obnoxious …. ya think?
However, Maher had to admit liberals have made the “cultural resentment” on the right much easier to grasp, with the PC police telling people like him to censor jokes, Facebook providing over 50 genders, atheists suing over crosses, and all the rest of it. Maher admitted “liberals can be obnoxious” and people don’t like political “nagging.”
However, Maher warned that liberal paternalism is no reason to “cut off your nose to spite your face.” He said, “For every liberal with a cause who makes you go ‘Oh, shoot me,’ there’s a conservative with a gun who will.”
