Subject: G#%damn Political correctness.
FJV    6/28/2005 4:45:47 PM
Thanks for remembering why I HATE political correctness, the bastards don't even have to try to get what they want! Source in Dutch: A T shirt was put on a statue of a female buste of white mosaic and the statue's back was turned to the public, because the breasts on the statue upset some Minorities (Muslims). The artist didn't agree with this and retrieved the statue. So for all you easily offended gits! (you know who you are)

In England, a land suffocated by the government's pc obsession, a crematorium removed its cross and renamed itself a 'memorial hall' becoz it may 'offend minorites'. I guess one day hot cross buns will be banned, and caterers and cooks will be prohibited from cutting a cross into jacket potatos.

Does this mean I have to take the crucifix out of my vampire-hunting kit, and stop cross-cutting the noses of my silver bullets for werewolves? (And what about the holy water in my Super-Soaker?)

Carl Sagan had a very funny riff on the plaque in "The Cosmic Connection". The gist of it was that a feminist civilization, one that talked entirely by sign language, and one of superintelligent, very spindly spiders all thought they were being dissed- and accordingly set out to blow >us< out of the ether. It's amusing (in a sickening way) how many people who spend their entire lives looking for saomething to be offended by so they have an excuse to be obnoxious. I'd say they needed a lobotomy, but I'm not sure that would do any good- their IQs may >already< be in the single digits.

"Tell You one thing: We are not changing our flag." Unfortunately, give it time. Just like here in the US, I'm surprised we have gotten by this long without some self-appointed-to-correct-the-nation, enraged, distorted christian sect claiming that all the 5-point stars on the US flag are pentagrams representing the devil (and we wonder why middle easterners call us the "Great Satan") and therefore have no place on the symbol of our "One Nation, Under God." My question for England, Europe, and any other nation facing islamic suffocation: what right do those muslims have to DEMAND anything, all the while as they show little or no respect for other previous inhabitants (CITIZENS) and THEIR views and beliefs? Some moron moves into my town and suddenly says, "Sorry, but that symbolic thing that has stood in your town for 2 centuries and represents your past, offends my religious views, so you have to remove it!" is gonna get a rude awakening from some of the (unfortunately) "less friendly" groups who won't tolerate that kind of behavior. If muslims can't correct their own homeland (the middle easterners migrating away from the middle east: are they running away from the problem? or helping spread it?), then they got no business coming to another land and suddenly dictating why all the rest of us should suddenly change our beliefs, traditions, and religious symbology just because it offends them. And for anyone choosing to change their beliefs and adopt the islamic ways, more power to you for exploring your spirituality, but, where do you get off demanding the whole world changes to suit you as you see fit?

Actually, a five-pointed star, whther standing alone or inscribed in a circle, is an ancient protective symbol- which is why it was a common motif for the "hex marks" on barns in the old Pennsylvania "Dutch" (actually "Deutsch") tradition. This was well known to the Founding Fathers, as it'salso part of the Masonic tradition for the same reason, although it actually predates Christianity (it was inherited from Celtic and other naturist religious practices, notably what is today known as Wicca.) Only a star with a point going >downward< relative to your POV when upright at the "base" is a "satanic" symbol, and only gained that status in the 16th Century in Europe (due to the likes of Gilles' de Rais). I've always wondered- is the fact that our national insignia is an upright star inscribed in a circle the reason our aircraft have gone through almost a century of warfare without being overly annoyed by... gremlins? ;-)

It is not active or passive islamic terrorism that creates the entire problem. Like water seeking its own level, atmosphere seeking to fill a vacuum, temperature flowing from warm to less warm, or electricity seeking out the easiest path, terrorism looks at liberal/socialist/internationalism as the easiest path to victory. “Political Correctness” is the grease on the slide. Democrats apply the grease with a wide brush. Main Stream Media applauds. Was it Khrushchev that said something like: we will give you the shovel you will bury yourself with? Contemporary islamic terrorism says we will bury with ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, NYT, etc. My apologies to Condor Legion again for borrowing his style, but I can’t resist. QUISLINGS! appleciderus
