Alberta: U of R cheerleaders' cowboys-and-Indians photo was normal; politically correct reaction was extreme



Every age has its officious moralizers, people who try to assert their superiority by embracing the prevailing orthodoxy—whatever it happens to be—with exaggerated zeal. They want to feel righteous. So they hunt for transgressors at whom they can point an accusatory finger.

In the post-Christian West, the holier-than-thou types enforce the codes of political correctness. The proverbial witch whom these p-c Puritans long to prosecute is the white racist, who (in their minds) lurks around every corner. And since they believe the act of accusing others bestows virtue on the accuser, they cry "racism!" whenever they find a pretext for doing so.

They recently worked themselves into a lather of self-righteous indignation when they found out that the University of Regina cheer team, which happened to be all white, dressed up as cowboys and Indians for a costume party.

The outrage! The girls must be punished for their "racism," the Twitter mob demanded. The dean of kinesiology promptly ensured everyone that the team would be subjected to "cultural sensitivity training."

Now I'm not saying this is equivalent to "burn-the-witch!" hysteria. But the difference is only one of degree.

hell, anything you say or do will offend someone these days, who cares?

If it wasn't this it would be the feminists complaining that their outfits were demeaning to women because they showed too much or too little or whatever absurd thing they came up with to complain about. If they had all gone as cowboys there would have been complaints that the costumes were racist because no minority cowboys were portrayed or that cowboys are a bunch of white racists who abused minorities and animals. Whatever you do these days there is a grievance group to complain about it.

Nowadays they take a step back and think about it first, and make sure they weigh the same as a duck before burning them.

"make sure they weigh the same as a duck"

Cool reference.

The PC correct people should be the ones going to "sensitivity training"

Instead of a "Cool reference" from Monty Python, Luke the Bible-quote-miner maybe doesn't want to quote what it says there about God's clear and plain injunction to kill witches - and many innocent victims of such an accusation were so murdered throughout history using that very Biblical authority to back it up.
I expect Luke will now embark on one of his famous diatribes in a hopeless attempt to excuse the Bible, God and himself!

"The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent. They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office."

When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know, the end result is tyranny and oppression no matter how holy the motives.

There is no point at which morality, decency, or sanity would kick in among the herd that elected Obama, because nothing is so depraved or horrific that liberals would not support it, so long as they believe it to be politically correct. Partial birth abortion is only the most obvious example.

Review the history of Third Reich and Stalinist Russia to get an idea of where their mentality is likely to lead if non-progressives don’t start putting up more serious resistance.

Its funny to see some leftist talk about how some "evil white guy" talks in general terms about blacks while it is leftists that do that constantly (i.e. blacks cannot support themselves to they need their help, i.e. welfare).

White liberals approach issues of race and racism from an essentially irrational, moralistic standpoint. White liberals do not simply judge racism to be based on bad thinking and criticise it for its illogical collectivism. Instead, white liberals make the issue of racism, as with other issues, all about them. White liberals have colonised the discourse of racism and anti-racism because it offers them an opportunity to boast of the superiority of their virtue and to demonstrate their purity and holiness through ostentatious and vacuous public displays of self-flagellation.

there is a tremendous amount of white guilt amongst the white liberal intelligentsia in this country, in a selfish way they try to assuage this guilt with a form of racism, the racism of low expectations.

This form of racism caters to the most idiosyncratic behaviour of the immigrant. It sets standards of behaviour for our (i.e. white) community, but when dealing with immigrants and others like Muslims and especially the black community, it does not expect them to live by the same standards.

Not sure which of the Anonymous gutless cowards has the hardon for Luke, but I'll scattergun the lot and they can deliver the mail to the correct addressee.

Anon, you hypocrite. If you studied God's word, even you'd perhaps eventually notice that He hates unrighteous judgement....which you in your sefl-righteous way admitted by saying "innocent victims of such an accusation". However, if the acusation is true, then the sentence is fitting, which you must logically conclude by your own words. You may also be interested that blasphemers and scoffers such as yourself have a significant spot in the limelight, as you will likely find out when He looks at you, Personally. Repent, and get a name, worm/s.

Btw, if one went by appearances alone, any of those squaws and cowgirls would be welcome to beat the tomtom in my wigwam any day, but only after proper marriage; which carries the condition of her being a godly woman. As for the fat stinky jealous bitter hateful progressive bitches, even if they wore burqas we'd know not to go near that flyblown marquee, and yet be thankful we can't see the horror inside. Shame we can still hear them. Are corks appropriate islamowear?

Stefen,

I hear that a major book store is going to place the Bible in the Science Fiction and Fantasy section of their store. Todd Starnes of Fox News is up in arms.

It is a waste of time to try to debate with the religious faithful.

I guess that makes the religious faithful master debaters.

Stefan's rant doesn't even address the point why God orders witches to be killed, even if any of those murdered as witches really were witches or sourcerers. Of course the reality was that in the Old Testament witches and sourcerers represented rival pagan practices to the religion of the jealous god Yahweh (or rather his priests and prophets, as Yahweh didn't exist in reality like all gods).

Anonymous said...

Academic research shows that Yahweh/Jehovah was just one among other Canaanite gods that the ancient Hebrew tribes picked up as their own, and then the priests of Yahweh supressed the worship of other gods (including female gods) to have this male war god as the sole god and special protector of the Israelites (much like the Muslims later selected just one of the pantheon of pagan Arab gods to be their own, namely Allah) .

Sorry about typo - "sorcerers" was meant of course.

Stephan,

The trolls don't care about the truth, just stirring up trouble. That should be clear from how they cherry pick passages and refuse to acknowledge context. If you give them a precise detailed explanation, they say "too many words" and ignore what you wrote. If you simplify it for them, they still ignore the explanation, or try to get you to chase them down yet another rabbit trail. They/he is a classic example of the person described in Luke 16:31.

It's best to ignore them and starve their trollish appetite.

Anonymous said...

So everyone is a troll who does not agree with stinky and you. That says a lot, sonny boy.

stinky said...


Luke,

Agreed. They have nothing to offer. Punt.

Stefan v BBotAS said...

Spot on, Luke....but if we tell them anyway it will go harder for them when sentencing time comes, because the excuse "but nobody ever told us!" is gone; but the elect will hear His word. So, heap the coals high. His Name isn't Yahweh, it is Jehova, mighty to save. Or not, as He pleases.

Yep, only the holy duo, Stefan and Luke, have the right to be right and must condemn the opposition to the eternal flames. Their arguments are just self-serving and self-righteous. The religious wrap themselves in a cacoon of delusion to protect themselves from reality.

Anonymous said...

The holy trinity, Stefan, Luke and Stinky.
And who cherry-picks the Bible more than the religious; ignoring what doesn't suit them or applying some fake context to make it sound better. But then highlighting what does suit their prejudices without bothering with context (such as the meaning of the word translated as "abomination" and why it was applied to sexual acts between men).

Use the Name, Luke said...

Stefan,

They've/he's been told, clearly and carefully (which is why they/he thinks they can get a rise out of me). You can see how well that explanation has worked. Like I said, a Luke 16:31 type person. You can see how they're/he's throwing out loaded "have you stopped beating your wife yet" type questions just to start an argument and/or cause hard feelings. They/he have no care for the truth, except to suppress it.

This is a case where (IMHO) Proverbs 26:4-5 and Matthew 7:6 apply. Romans 1:19 is clearly a sufficient level of knowledge for God to justly deal with them/him, and the only thing we should be piling on them is Romans 12:20.

BTW, my apologies for misspelling your name in my first reply.

Again Luke mis/uses Bible quotes to justify his beliefs and prejudices - talk about circular arguments. He just pontificates, and castigates any opposing view as vexatious to his sensibilities (petulantly dismissing it as trolldom). Well that's aways been the religious method - invoking blasphemy, etc. This site doesn't belong to the likes of Luke and his cohorts, even if his solipsism leads him to believe he has the Host of Heaven on his side.

Anonymous said...

I've just read Luke's refs in his "Book of Spells", which of course just reveals him as the smug, self-righteous, condescending d***, that was previously obvious, and so much like the Philistine prigs that even Jesus in that same book so often criticized - how ironic!

Anonymous said...

Sorry - for "Philistine" read "Pharisaic".

Anonymous said...

As regards witchcraft and sorcery, weren't Jesus' tricks like turning water into wine, turning a few loaves & fishes into numerous copies, walking on water or raising the dead, much like sorcery. And then people doing serious scientific research were accused of being sorcerers by the ignorant Christians around them.

Luke's puerile retort shows he has nothing intelligent to say.

Stefan v BBotAS said...

S'ok, Luke, since you and I are the only ones that dared use names, I know who you were referring to, and a little misspelling doesn't bother me.

Rage on, heathen, comeuppance is nearing. God will laugh in derision, and accomplish exactly what He intended. Your blasphemy and mockery is a part of that. And still none of you have the guts to own a name, other than "Anon". Never mind, you'll be forgotten in eternity anyway, unless The Lord has mercy on you in His grace and gives you a hearing ear.

So using 'Stefan' or 'Luke' is some kind of ID more revealing or brave to use than 'Anon'?
But surely to speak on behalf of God as you have, or presume to anticipate His judgement, is itself pure blasphemy. I do hope God is kinder to you than you are to your fellow humans.
I suspect Judgement Day won't turn out quite as you so smugly expected!
