There’s always something to howl about

It looks like the dam is finally bursting on politicaly-correct self-censorship in behalf of Islamofascist rageaholics.

You bastards!

The essence of Political Correctness is to get people to volunteer for their own self-imprisonment. In fear of offending some perpetually-offended jackass, the victims of Political Correctness come to be stunted, stilted, stifled — and ultimately silenced. But, alas, they never, ever manage to escape the snide, sneering insults of all those perpetually-offended jackasses.

Why? It’s simple: The sole objective of Political Correctness is to take power of other people — who are innocent of all offenses against anyone — by inducing them to to volunteer for their own self-imprisonment.

Heads up: If you don’t have the guts to stand up these cowards, these moral midgets, then you deserve what they are doing to you.

There’s more, and I’m loving it: Mark Steyn, Diana West, a wonderful unsigned manifesto, a kickin’ cartoon from Chris Muir, and, finally:

May 20th is everybody draw Mohammed day. This last strikes me as being a little over the top, since the objective would seem to be to offend Muslims, rather than simply to defend one’s own right to express oneself at will, without fear of a violent demise. But that distinction delivers precious little difference, and the time for phlegmatic reason in this particular dispute was three years ago.

I’m nobody’s artist, but I do love to make jokes. My poor long-suffering wife can tell you that I can make some raucously funny jokes about religion. Normally I don’t do this in public, because people have a right to believe what they want. But as soon as you or anyone tries to tell me I can’t make fun of religion — that’s when I’ll tell you why Bill O’Reilly says you should never, ever, ever cut Mohammed off in traffic.

This is bug-stomping, carrying out the trash, but it is absolutely necessary. Whenever exponents of savagery manage to stop denouncing the West, they commence comparing themselves to it, instead: “Well, the Incas invented the wheel.” “The Chinese invented explosives.” This is twice sad: It’s the most pathetic kind of collectivism — racism — and it misses the point of Western Civilization entirely. The West didn’t invent this technology or that one. The West invented the individual — and that individual separated himself from the herd by the act of ridiculing the powerful.

All of the amazing technology we take for granted was invented by Western spirits, wherever and whenever they happend to be born. But the absolute most important invention in the history of the West is satire — the formalized and enduring ridicule of the powerful and of the pitiably, comically, impotently inept morons who aspire to power.

There are no satirists better than Matt Stone and Trey Parker, creators of South Park. But when our right to ridicule the powerful is threatened, we must each one of us poke fun at our would-be overlords. To fail to fight for your freedom is to surrender it by default. That’s what Political Correctness is for…

      The CC network execs are cowards. They profit from the boundaries of free speech… and cower down over this issue.

      Shameful.

      LOL, this post reminds me of any friday afternoon conversation back in college, debating the merits of arguing with the powers-that-be when you knew full well that you are right. I completely agree with you on this one, fight the power!

      Anger or angst? Which do I choose today? Do I mind if they take away one episode today? Do I mind if they take away one individual today?

      I don’t mind at all…..
