SJW is just the latest in a long line of libtard, snowflake, socialist monikers that the right makes up to deal with their own fears.  Fear of women, fear of gays, fear of immigrants, fear of minorities.  I’ve never seen a more pathetic group in my life.  They can’t point to any legitimate data to back up their assertions, so they repost fake news from a Russian troll farm about some atheist shutting down a halftime show that included playing a hymn in Kansas.  When I pointed out this did not happen, their response was “we don’t care if it’s true or not!”  Which pretty much sums up the whole problem, in one sentence.

Yeah, "Cancel Culture" is just the latest, only it's specifically for Celebrities to feel included, in playing the victim.

Rape Culture?  Totally not a thing, what's really wrong with this country is people not laughing at my offensive jokes.

Lisa Bonet, who's career was actually ended, because she wasn't the star, and the fanboys finally got to see her tits, covered in chicken blood.




Angel Heart was one incredibly sick twisted movie. DeNiro as “Louis Cypher” was magic.



This was on last night, and I really wanted to watch it.  It was a bit late though, so went to sleep.  So wholesome Bill fired her for nudity in this movie, and now she’s married to Jason Momoa, and Bill is a universally despised rapist in prison.

He also ended her career, for systematic slut shaming,  

It was her first film.  No, it didn't "Ruin her life," but then she didn't flash unwilling people at a party.  (Instead, she married a rich, and famous guy for financial security, and fell into obscurity.)  The very real fact is that being outed as a sexual predator doesn't ruin your life.  It should, but it doesn't.  Being a comedian that tells dirty jokes, then being exposed for telling dirty jokes before you cultivated this family friendly image didn't ruin Tim Allen's career.

As a starlet, showing your tits can.  I call it the "Alba" principal.  A lot of the appeal for Jessica Alba is her No Nudity Clause.  Halle Berry famously demanded a bonus to show her tatas in a very bad Hacker movie (Where the skillgate boss was hacking into a secure government server, on a timer, while getting a blowjob from a hooker)  It didn't ruin her career, either, but she didn't exactly build that career exclusively on her looks.

I think what is being called "cancel culture" is serious and a big problem.  Three major kink conferences have been canceled recently by a person yelling that some how the leaders of these kink events having flaws.

1 GLLA (Great Lakes Leather Alliance) - In 2017 this event had a keynote speaker that said some controversial things, in the outcry afterward, several people came forward and said they would never support the event again.  The organizers of the event appologized saying they had no idea the speaker's comments would be so controversial, won't repeat, to no avail.  This convention, that had been successful for 10 years, is now cancelled forever.

2. Behind Closed Doors - In 2018 a guy who did not like the producer lied about witnessing something and claimed the producer drew a knife and put it to a girl's throat.  Problem is, it never happened.  But social media didnt care.  Another event around for 10 yers gone forever.

3. Southwest Leather Celebration - in 2019 the same person who led the charge against GLLA (above) was chosen to be keynote speaker for their 2020 event by coordinating comittee.  She had also posted attacks on members of the Board of Directors of the eventcalling them transphobic, etc. (I investigated this, the wife of somone on the board posted a story that was not obviously transphobic on first read, but fell apart under scruitiny as being so. The wife removed the link to the article after it was identified as transphobic)  and this led to the entire board being labeled "transphobic" by association.  The board finally said "were done" and the event was cancelled. Later the board announced it was time to retire the event.

4. Sin in the City - a malcontent who broke the rules was banned from the event.  In retaliation he wrote letters to the hotel, city of Las Vegas, and the State of Nevada.  Result was the event lost the hotel and the event was cancelled.  It is hoped that it will return in 2021.

So this is cancel culture. Have a grudge?  Burn the whole fucking thing down.

I blame the Internet and the social media that it spawned.  It used to take access to the press, and a veracity of credibility, to reach an audience.  Now you can say or do most anything, and it will go viral within hours.  It is destroying lives, careers, politics, and community.  I’m ready to take up an ascetic lifestyle and go live in BFE.

Last week I posted a picture of a Ku Klux Klan hall on my home town’s “memory page” that is devoted to discussion of historical sites and remembrances.  Most of them are things like “anybody remember that great hamburger joint on 3rd Street?”  Some of them are more serious.  Photos of historic buildings and locations.  Some extant.  Most gone.

I’ve been involved with this group for years and am a frequent poster.  Surprise.  Hundreds of posts.

So the last remaining Ku Klux Klan auditorium in the country resides in our fair city, and the owners want to tear it down.  Built in 1927, it has a historical designation, but no historical protection.  Apparently the KKK is not something the city wants to preserve or protect.

And the history group must feel the same way. I posted photos with comments about the building’s tortured legacy. Within an hour, my account was cancelled, and all of my posts were removed.  The Administrators refuse to reply to my PM’s.  I’m ghosted.

You can’t learn from history if you can’t talk about it.  I’m obviously not a KKK advocate.  But now all the work I put in documenting our city’s history is for naught.  All the photos and documents I collected and shared are erased.  Just because some gutless faceless person got triggered, and imposed the death penalty, because I dared to mention the KKK was once a big deal in our hometown.

This is ridiculous.

Same with the tearing down of civil war statues.   It's history.  Can we not preserve it.

At the risk of getting all polemical on a lazy Sunday afternoon, it' not Civil War statues that's the problem, it's statues celebrating Confederate leaders -- and th legacy that they represent.

And they're not really being torn down, they're being removed, and, in some cases, being put it museums, exactly where they belong. Yes, they represent history, but history is taught in classrooms and museums, and not in town squares, and not in a way that distorts historical events.

Until recently, some U.S. history, as it actually occurred,  was not taught in U.S. elementary and high school classrooms. The whitewash versions were taught.  I agree on the statues though, and by removing them to a museum, can be a learning experience for the younger generations if they are told the true historical reasons why the statues were erected in the first place.
