Politically Correct Thinking Is Now A Confirmed Mental Illness: Part 2

Hey there boys-n-girls, I’ve got a joke for you.

What do you get when you cross a Mexican with an octopus?

“Uh…I dunno.  What?”

I don’t know either, but I bet it sure is good at picking lettuce.

Ha!

So.  Are you offended?

Now take a look at this short video.

How about now?

I know the audio isn’t very good, so I’ll explain to you what’s going on here.

That video is a recording of democratic California congresswoman Loretta Sanchez being interviewed on a liberal radio show, talking about her experiences meeting members of the Tea Party.  She’s using a southern accent to represent, well, apparently all of them.

Here’s a transcript of what she said:

Sanchez: “Hey, what’s your name?”

Tea Party member: “My name is M-O-E.”

Sanchez: “Ok Moe. Moe-ster.  How you doing baby?  What are we going to do today?  What’s your interest?  What can we work on together?”

Tea Party member: “Well, it’s unconstitutional.”

So not only are all Tea Party members southern, but I guess they’re stupid too, because all they can say, according to Sanchez, is that everything is unconstitutional.  If I were Sanchez, I’d bet they all have stills in their backyards and bring gallons of that “white lightnin” to every one of their get-togethers.

Out in the sticks, of course.  With a few banjos and some corn-cob pipes.

Now are you offended?

Well, according to society, no matter what has been said or done, if you’re a Caucasian, you shouldn’t be.

Let me rephrase that.  You’re not allowed to be.  You should just take it as a joke.

So let’s turn the tables for a minute.

What if, say, Mitt Romney had told that Mexican joke I mentioned above at a campaign function?

“Oh no he di-int!”

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, it would be ‘Hands Across America’.  Every Latino worth his salt would be out the next day, protesting at his state legislature.  And it would make national news.

Heck, ol’ Mitt would probably earn himself a visit from the ACLU.

But what about Sanchez?  What’s going on with that?

Since I’m guessing that this post is the first you’ve heard of the story, not much.

Hmmm.  Seems like I’ve mentioned this type of politically correct behavior before.

This is how political correctness tears society apart.  There’s one set of rules for one group, and another set for others.  With both sides being at odds all the time, somebody is going to feel neglected and put-upon when all is said and done.

Politically correct behavior is insane.  We’re like a bunch of little kids, getting mad at other kids for calling us names.  Like we’re five years old or something.

“Mooooom.  Jimmy called me a dog-faced booger eater.”

You know what my mom would have said? 

“Call him one back.”

I would have, and we would have left it at that.

America, we won’t make it as a nation divided.  It’s impossible.  So let’s put aside these petty differences and focus on the important things in life.  God, family, and country.

For God’s sake, whatever happened to the old “Sticks and Stones” mantra??

If you walk away from this post having learned nothing else, please take this saying to heart:

A house divided will not stand.”

I wonder who said that?

Islamophobia: The Video. The Truth.

I’m usually not one to write short posts, but I think this video says more than I ever could about how politically correct people in America view the religion of Islam.  Please be sure to watch the entire video, as it changes drastically at about the halfway mark, and that’s where the truth really starts to shine through.

Thanks to the folks over at Answering Muslims for turning me on to this video.

Note:  If you didn’t catch it, the “preacher” is preaching from the Qu’ran, but using the passages as if they were from the Bible.

Please let me know if you enjoyed this video.  Or even if you hated it.  Thanks in advance!


School Forces Kids To Eat Cafeteria Food Or ‘Go Hungry’

A banana. PB & J.  Some chips.  Maybe a cookie.  And a box of apple juice.

“Hmmm…What are…things you eat for lunch at school when you’re a kid?”

“Oh, I’m sorry Janet.  The answer we’re looking for is ‘things you eat for lunch at school when you’re a kid unless you attend Chicago’s Little Village Academy.’  Looks like Sonny Jim takes the lead.”

“In your face, Janet!”

Mocking facial expressions and lewd hand gestures ensue.

Elsa Carmona is the principal of Little Village Academy in Chicago.  Along with her teaching degree, Carmona also has a master’s degree in food sciences, an associate’s in human development, and devotes her most of her spare time to the nutrition research program at the Mayo Clinic.  She really is quite gifted.

Oh, and she has one more degree.  A doctorate in BS from What Gives You The Right university.

It’s in Texas.  Google it if you don’t believe me.

No, Ms. Carmona doesn’t have any of the degrees I mentioned.   As far as I can tell, she’s just a regular elementary school principal.  What she does have though, is quite a high level of audacity.  Principal Carmona has banned home-made lunches from her school’s cafeteria.

“Yeah, well stranger things have happened.”

True enough.

The fact that one principal, in charge of one school, decides that she’s the queen of nutrition and knows more about what’s best for her students than their parents do doesn’t surprise me.

What gets me is that it’s happening in other places too.

A school in Tucson, Arizona won’t let kids bring anything for lunch that contains refined sugar, white flour, or any other kind of processed food.  A few schools in New York have banned cupcakes.  Schools in numerous locations throughout the country ban their students from eating take-out for lunch.

“They’re only doing this because of the childhood obesity epidemic.  Leave them alone…”

No, I don’t think I will.

Childhood obesity starts at home, and that’s where it needs to be dealt with.  Rather than banning sack lunches or certain foods from school cafeterias, maybe the district should offer some educational resources for the parents.  Or at the very least, if the schools are going to institute a ban like this, they need to be chipping in to help finance these meals.

The bottom line is, schools don’t have the right to tell parents what to feed their kids.  Granted, many parents probably need to step it up in the nutrition department.  But outlawing cupcakes, and the ‘eat school lunches or go hungry’ mandates infringe on some very basic rights, not only of the parents, but of the students as well.

We need to remember the function of public schools in our society; to teach our children basic academic skills.  Schools are not daycares, nor the teachers nursemaids.  It is not the responsibility of public schools to raise our kids or monitor what they consume.

Stories like this make me wonder what’s next.  Nightly visits from school officials, making sure mom didn’t undercook the chicken?  Frisking students for Pixie Stix at the door?  Mandatory hypodermic broccoli injections?

I can just see the headlines now.
