Here’s another Unfit For The Internet award. Although, it most certainly qualifies as unfit for anything.
If you haven’t seen the videos from Planned Parenthood selling body parts from aborted babies you should. They are truly shocking and abhorrent. The videos highlight something that the local and federal governments were not aware of. That Planned Parenthood not only convinces women to have abortions and carries them out, but they harvest the bodies of the killed babies and sells the body parts. Paying special attention to the parts that will bring in the most money. The callous nature that these doctors show for the bodies of the babies shouldn’t be allowed. Even Hillary Clinton has come out and said that the videos were disturbing.
Now comes in Jay Inslee, the moronic Governor of the State of Washington, to open his mouth and show why electing him was a mistake. He released a statement after he received letters from people who have a conscience asking for either an investigation to start into these allegations or funding being removed from Planned Parenthood. It’s not surprising that letters like these be sent to every governor in the union given the nature of this problem, but Governor Inslee doesn’t see it that way. The Seattle PI’s article states…
“Planned Parenthood provides millions of women across the country access to a full range of affordable health care and family planning services,” Inslee said in a statement. “National extremist organizations are engaged in a concerted effort to discredit, and ultimately eliminate, an organization that so many women rely on.” (emphasis mine)
That’s right, Inslee is calling people who conscientiously object to the selling of the body parts of the babies they are aborting “extremists”. That’s right, if you have a conscience and feel that at the least an investigation to these allegations should be started, you are an extremist. It’s apparently wrong to even ask for an investigation into likely illegal activities shown in the video.
But you would be remiss if you thought that this was an original thought out of the brain of Inslee. It sounds as if he’s just parroting the how the President of Planned Parenthood feels about those who caught them in the act. His statement and his choice of words speaks volumes about how he feels with those of conscience. He’s telegraphed his actions and will not do his sworn duty to uphold the law.
And for his part, he has earned the Unfit For The Internet award. Governor Inslee, you are unfit!
Here’s the latest installment of true “Unfit for the Internet”.
There’s been some articles floating around which are just range from lazy to asinine. The sad thing is, there are some folks who actually believe this. Which is why these articles are boarder on insidious.
Apparently, while claiming the term “cracker” is a “term of endearment”, there’s a few “code words” that when used really are racially charged words to describe something, anything, that might be related to a Black person or persons. Of course, the only people who are really using them in a way to be racist are only Republicans or Conservatives. Joe Biden can use the words and not be racist, cause he’s rich white Democrat who just wants the Blacks to do his bidding.
Curious what these words are?
- Urban/Inner City
- Welfare and Food Stamps
- Law and Order
- Cut Taxes
“OMG, I’m like, horrified that people still use these words!” Although some of these are terms, not words, we’ll let that slide. While I could just go on and on about these words, I’m going to quote from a reply to the article because it’s pretty good. Go to the article and look for Harry Merkin’s response at the bottom of the page.
1) THUG http://misterroosevelt.blogspot.com/2008/06/suprising-origins-of-word-thug.html.
All this time I never knew black people were actually from India.
2) URBAN http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/urban.
Do any of you people KNOW what a dictionary is?
3) STATE’S RIGHTS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/States’_rights.
In American political discourse, states’ rights refers to political powers reserved for the U.S. state governments rather than the federal government according to the United States Constitution, reflecting especially the enumerated powers of Congress and the Tenth Amendment.
4) LAW AND ORDER I don’t even NEED to give proof of how asinine THIS ONE is. You don’t think white people commit crimes? Jeffery Dahmer used to EAT black people. Casey Anthony killed her child. Charles Manson, Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin….I could go on. Jesus, do you think every criminal is black? Guess that makes the TV show LAW and ORDER the most racist shit being broadcast today.
5) CUT TAXES This word is racist? Hard working Americans don’t like paying taxes. People too lazy to get off their asses and work and expect others to pay their way, don’t worry about a higher tax bracket.
Some of the other responses are entertaining of course. One even suggests that the writing is using an Andy Kauffman tactic. Act like an idiot so people think you are an idiot.
Now, we all laugh at this and think that they aren’t serious, or that nobody could possibly be that gullible. Surely this is new. But it’s not. I found these words grouped together in this same claim in what may be the originating article. Of course the original article is targeting Senator Paul Ryan and his racist terms in a speech he gave. The list in this article has 8 words, 5 of which got carried over to the article above. The 3 dropped words are “forced busing”, “shariah law” and “illegal alien”. The last two are just as stupid, but extra because the connotations have nothing to do with race, that is unless you are going to be disingenuous.
“Shariah Law” obviously is religious word, one of the Muslim faith. If anything, it’s a religious word not racist. Because a large portion of the worlds population is Muslim, and that spans many races, how can its usage be racist? If anyone knows anything about Islam is that it’s one of the largest religions in the world which spans across the globe. Which means that it covers all races. So, which race is using that term racist against?
Ironically, by mentioning President Bush and the Iraq war the author is doing the exact same thing that she is claiming Ryan is doing with using the term “forced busing”. She “simply dropped in the phrase[s] to trigger resentment and gain supporters.” Again. it looks like the author is being disingenuous.
“illegal alien” is another term that is often misrepresented by Socialists, Progressives, and Liberals. It is in fact a technical term that is used in government documentation. While these people make these assertions about things they know nothing about, those of us who have actually gone through the immigration system and deal with it often understand that this term is in no way racist. The simple proof is asking the author which race she thinks this is pointed against. It’s obvious that she’s talking about Mexico. Of course, Mexico is a country, not a race. Then there’s the claim that it’s against Latinos. But again, anyone who knows anything about our immigration system know s that one of the biggest problem we have is people overstaying their visas. These offenders are also “illegal aliens”. And which race is that? Well, just about from every country in the world.
The thing that is interesting in this whole thing is that if the use of these words were really so truly racist and an actual problem the articles wouldn’t be pointing to only 1 group of individuals, the Republicans. It would be pointed to all people. It’s my assertion that these articles point to people doing just what they claim the Republicans are doing. They are trying to set up “code words” for common themes used by Republicans so that when Republicans use them people just push them off as Racist and the condemnation begins.
These types of articles are truly “unfit for the internet”.
I have no delusions that I’m a good writer, or that I make really good points. Most of what you read here is just stuff that I try to get off of my chest. But lately I’ve been running into really, really stupid articles. (what, stupid stuff on the interwebs?). I’ve decided that since I’m calling this heap of junk that I put out on the internet “Unfit for the Internet”, I might as well start point out what I see as articles and other internet stuffs that is, well Unfit for the Internet.
The first item that I bring to you is an article from the extreme leftist website “PolicyMic” written by one Eileen Shim, which highlights one of the cool things about Japanese culture, honor. But first, a little hatred and over the top generalization to get things started…
The article starts off in a bad way…
The news: When American fans win a major sporting event, they often like to celebrate by turning over cars and burning everything in sight. When Japanese teams lose, it turns out that fans commiserate by cleaning the stadium.
That’s right, every stinking sports fan in the grand ol US of A is exactly like those LA Laker fans who took the opportunity to engage in a little civil disobedience. Shim’s talking to you golf fans!
Now that a proper villain has been established, in comes to good guy…
On Saturday, Japan lost its first World Cup match with the Ivory Coast by 2-1. While that could have been a demoralizing start for most sports enthusiasts, a bunch of Japanese fans who attended the event at Arena Pernambuco in Recife, Brazil decided to respond with an unbelievably classy move: cleaning up the stadium.
This is an awesome thing. No doubt about it. And I’m not picking on Shim for pointing this out, she’s right to do so. It’s what she does next that gives this article a “Unfit for the Internet” stamp of disgrace.
In true fashion, she begins to deluge us with image upon image of just how awful America really is. I mean, surely every person who enjoys sports is exactly like the LA Laker fans or College Frat boys who’s celebrations include turning over cars and setting them on fire. No other country in the world has fans like those horrible Americans. I mean, look at these Seahawk fans celebrating wildly when their team won the Superbowl. That’s one group of fans living on the edge I tell you.
So, file this one under Unfit for the Internet.
