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!
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.
