Politically Correct Radio Station Yanks Christmas Classic Off The Air

Is this how far we are willing to go in order to not offend anyone?

political correctness

The liberal left has been imposing a new set of unwritten rules on society as of late, disguised as “social justice” or “political correctness”.

While there are certainly offensive utterances that should lose their favor in a modern society, the idea of weaponizing this emotional response across the board in order to stay “ahead of the societal curve” is likely damaging to future generations of Americans.  We need the grit and grime to exist in order to maintain our edge and our ability to recognize right from wrong.

What’s worse still is that the line between “right and wrong” has been moved so many times by the social justice warriors that conflict is now inevitable.  Any conversation you have is a potential powder keg, and you don’t even know it yet.

Trending: Biden Speech Writers Salivate Over Emerging July 4th Narrative

What’s worse still, the line of political correctness is being aimed retroactively, with some of the more zealous arbiters of historical revision pulling to have love songs removed from the radio for being too offensive.

The holiday classic “Baby It’s Cold Outside” has been removed from an Ohio radio station’s playlist.

Star 102 Cleveland said that the song’s lyrics may not be appropriate, especially in light of the #MeToo movement, WOIO reported.

The song, written in 1944, includes lines normally sung by a woman including “Say, what’s in this drink?” and “I simply must go,” followed by the woman singing “The answer is no.”

The insinuation is that this drink may be spiked with rohypnol, or “roofies” – the date rape drug.

Well, here’s the problem with that:

The history of Rohypnol is deeply intertwined with the history of benzodiazepines. Originally benzodiazepines were first developed in the 1950s by the scientist Leo Sternbach while he was working for the Swiss pharmaceutical company Hoffman-La Roche.3 Sternbach directed a team of researchers that helped him create and introduce many benzodiazepines. Rohypnol was first introduced by Hoffman-La Roche in 1975.

I would imagine that a song written during World War II would likely be referring to a stiff drink as opposed to a drug invented in the 1950’s.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
