Gulags were 'compassionate', 'educational' institutions, say trans rights campaigners:

I'm sure there's a government somewhere in the world which will be happy to recreate the experience.

This is not a racist cartoon:

Image

Cartoons and caricatures are necessarily exaggerated. Progressives have commented on things like wishing to not just "palate swap" skin colors as representations and now laugh at the notion when someone says "I don't see color". On their first point I generally agree but it has nothing to do with politics and more to do with a sense of taste, on the second I guess it depends on the context of how that phrase is said. Either way, this is part of the consequences of their own "aesthetics" (though I know progressives have no aesthetics and are by many of their own admission anti-art and utilitarian)...but it doesn't matter because someone depicted someone they imagine to be on their side in one of their stupid causes was portrayed badly, so it's "racist". I think they would defend Charlie Hebdo in the depiction of Islam (I think? maybe not), or certainly any of their exaggerated feature of "red necks" but not this.

Besides all that, even a photograph requires subject perspective and the human action of deciding to put it out and interpret the photo as worth something. I know progressives see all things as deterministic process, and have a need for one "identity" to only be able to interpret it's own "identity" otherwise it's cultural appropriation, I guess and if it doesn't portray it's identity "correctly it is a class traitor or has "false conscience. Anyway, in our New Progressive Era that started around 2014 this does reinforce my beliefs though that progressives can't handle art, and can not handle anything other than propaganda.

I'm preaching to the choir I know, but progressives should call " multicultralism" by what they really mean and that is "monopoliticalism". Their "diversity" and demand for "representation" is like the old bolshevik defense of "proletariate"; women, race, even muslims are simply vapid meaningless and abstract political blocks and classes.



Fortunately, so far, the Newspaper this was printed in is defending the cartoonist:

New Shakespeare play was discovered by the BBC!!!!

https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-45356908


And this time the new Shakespeare play was written by....A A WOMYN!!! It was "written" by adding all the lines of Queen Margurite of Anjou from Henry VI pts I,II, and II and RIchard the III. The Author, O'Hare wrote her own lines with Shakespeare's as well. This gives the TRUE meaning of Shakespeare updated for the times and allows marginalized voices to a platform to speak truth to power.

Jeanie O'Hare, who was a diversity hire hired to be the Royal Shakespeare Company's first female literary manager had the idea to put Margaret in the spotlight while working as at the time when the company put on the Bard's epic history plays in full a decade ago. And to keep with the spirit of the times and diversity hires, the lead will go to a black woman with an alerna teen haircut...and the role will be played as the identity of a marginalized black womyn.

Forunatley this seems to be part of a trend in modernizing Shakespeare as: " at the same time Queen Margaret is at the Royal Exchange, a play called Othellomacbeth is also putting the spotlight on Shakespeare's female characters down the road at Manchester's Home theatre. Othellomacbeth is a condensed version of both plays in the title, and the scenes not featuring women have been stripped out."

You go GRRRRLZZ!!!! You Don't need no man writing your plays (kind of).... You Go! (Seriously, go, please go)

UK Police (with a supposedly impeccable record) officer may lose his job for using the racist anti-social phrase "whiter than white" to describe how actions ought be faultless. Clearly racist.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/0 ... ter-white/

in New Britain another officer is under investigation for using the phrase "pale, stale and male"

The end of privileged reactionary, patriarchal language is near as the dawn of a new age approaches.

That is massively retarded. Just because there's a recurring character over many, many plays it does not follow that they are ever the main character. Also taking all her dialogue out of context makes zero sense. Game of Thrones got worse in the last season because they wanted to get a greatest hits character interactions but it was hugely flat because the characters weren't written to be in those circumstances. This Shakey head seems like the worst type of fan girl who loves a character so much so thinks they deserve a whole story to themselves - philistine.

1) Game of thrones 7 was disorienting. The most amusing part is where it jumped full hog on the feminist wagon. I'm not a fan of George Martin, but from what I can tell he has a bit better sense than to do paint by the numbers corporate progressive shibboleths

2) I have the thought that "seizing the means of" progressivism is much worse than those who just want to outright level everything. A "seize the means" indicates entitlement, and all this stuff is yours, and it's yours right now. So these people have no problem "updating" Shakespeare, liberalism, capitalism, or any institution that has existed in space and time... as it can be interpreted to be the progressives.

With those who openly wish to level you have the option of at least attempting sectarianism, sending them to the monastery, in the future sending them to mars, or at least acknowledging open and irreconcilable differences.
