Hugs for Thugs

San Francisco is a den of feckless PC nuttery, so I’m not surprised at anything weird emanating from that particular cesspool of filthy hippiedom. After all, this is the city where a middle school recently decided to delay announcing the results of a student election, because they weren’t diverse enough for the howler monkeys’ tastes. Because kids voting for the peer they believe would best represent them in student government is not good enough. “It’s not okay for a school that is really, really diverse to have the student representatives majority white,” the principal said.

So teaching kids that their vote only counts when it’s the “right” vote is acceptable?

So disrespecting those kids who ran effective campaigns and those kids who voted for them is OK, because they’re white.

But it’s not racism when they do it.

So, no. I’m not surprised at all with any sort of dimwittery that emanates from San Fran, but I will ridicule it whenever I run across it, because Jesus Feckin’ Christ in a Pink Tutu! The idiocy is EPIC!

Today’s dipshittery comes to you in the form of community organizer Malkia Cyril, who suggests that we are insulting and dehumanizing criminals by calling them… CRIMINALS. She also claims that calling them what they are and telling the truth about their illegal actions shows a lack of empathy and understanding.

Cyril pointed out that instead of calling the thief who took the bicycle from your garage a criminal, you could be more respectful and call him or her “the person who stole my bicycle.”

“I [suggest] that people who commit property crimes are human and deserved to be referred to in terms that acknowledge that,” Cyril, who’s the executive director of the Center for Media Justice in Oakland, writes in the thread.

So now we’re supposed to respect and empathize with a scumbag who has no respect for others’ property. We’re supposed to recognize the alleged “humanity” of those who take a large, steaming dump on the hard work that allowed another person to purchase that bike, or that cell phone, or that car.

We’re not supposed to brand someone who commits a CRIME as someone who commits a CRIME, because Teh Feelz™.

And worse yet, this Malkia Cyril creature thinks that having your property stolen is a mere inconvenience, because PRIVILEGE!

How DARE you bitch about your property that you can replace anytime you want, you selfish, privileged, pig, instead of being concerned about the poor thugs who stole it?

I would submit that anyone who has so little respect for others’ rights and their hard work and doesn’t understand the value of said work or fundamental property rights, probably hasn’t done a lick of hard work herself. That’s why she is so intent on pushing her “hugs for thugs” mentality, while sane people point and laugh.
This is just another example of the social justice mission to change the meaning of language, to shield those whom they consider “victims” from the realities of life, and to paint the rest of us as unfeeling jerks, undeserving of sympathy at being victimized by her pet thugs, because we happen to be white, or male, or… whatever it is they consider privileged this week.She has no respect for other people’s efforts. She has no respect for their earnings. She has no respect for their property. The concept that a white male can be victimized by a thieving savage doesn’t occur to her, because white men are barely human in her world. So even as she screeches that we need to have “respect” for those who have no respect for us, she dismisses us as privileged and therefore not worthy of her empathy merely due to the melanin content in our skin or our ability to make a purchase.

    Yeah, it’s a tactic that is sometimes used. In Southern Colorado there is an (obviously leftist) group that is pushing for amnesty for immigrants. One of their arguments is that a person can’t be “illegal”, so we are supposed to call them “undocumented immigrants”. Pssssh. Whatever. That is a slippery slope argument they are using to try to have us look the other way and give their law-breaking behavior a pass. I won’t buy it.

    This Malkia Cyril; I hope she gets something she values (even if it’s her dignity) stolen from her at some point. Maybe she can foster a couple meth addicts and watch them slowly drain the resources and life force out of her budget before she wakes up and realizes not every thief is Jean Valjean.

    As far as those kids in San Fran….man, do I feel sorry for the children who diligently voted and got involved in student government, only to find out that democracy doesn’t work when it’s not convenient to those in charge. If I were one of the parents I’d (a) encourage a walk out in protest of having legitimate election results thrown out (b) tell the news, and/or (c) not have my kids participate (either as a voter or a candidate) in elections where it makes no difference, and tell the school why. That’s just ridiculous.

    Except… refusing to call a criminal a criminal because it is dehumanizing is in and of itself dehumanizing.

    Basically, the only reason not to call them a criminal would be because they aren’t responsible for their actions. But that only works if they either lack free will or cognitive ability. So… if they’re not culpable for their actions they’re either legally insane and need compassion and treatment, or they’re not human.

    Somehow I don’t think the person is arguing that criminals are mentally ill, leaving the other option. Which is in fact denying their humanity, humanity that includes the possibility of making wrong decisions.

  3. Is Malkia Cyril subconsciously telling us she has a death wish of some sort?

    Is it the balloons and candlelight vigils (which she would never see if she’s dead) that make her say these things?

    You really do have to ask just how disconnected from reality some of these people are.

    Taking the vote away from people who voted for their choice comes off as awfully reminiscent of some part of history past… oh, yes – I remember it now. It was the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Yeah, that was it.

    So are we going to find unwilling ourselves back in the USSR? (HT to the Beatles on the White Album.)

  4. How about “The armed person I shot dead right there when he violently and feloniously invaded my home with malice aforethought”? Would that be respectful enough to suit you, Malkia?

  6. There is also the fact that people like Malkia seem to assume that the only victims of criminals are people who “can afford it”. The people who can afford it because they have good insurances or can even just replace whatever was stolen are far more likely to live where there isn’t much crime, and it happens to them less often.

    The ones who are more likely to be victims tend to be people who are poor themselves and live in areas where those criminals are their neighbors. And most of the criminals aren’t Robin Hoods who only steal from the rich, they take what they can easily get and amuse themselves by hurting those who can be easily hurt. And those people damn well can’t afford it, losing the junker car or cheap bike they maybe need in order to get to the only job they managed to get could easily derail their whole lives.

  7. ” people who commit property crimes are human and deserved to be referred to in terms that acknowledge that”

    Hmm, well I usually use terms like scum, thug, and low-life, which is about the level of respect these selfish, uncivilized, criminals deserve.

    I am guessing that is shining light of intellect has never saved for months on end to buy something only to have it stolen. Sorry, darlin’ not everyone can “replace [it] anytime you want”

    Another funny trivia note, a good deal of theft is committed against middle to low income households, not the upper class with their state-of-the-art security. Too bad this junior genius doesn’t know that.
