Be Politically Incorrect - Please! Author: TriSecDate:07/11/2015 11:24:03
Well good morning, bitches and bastards! As well as faggots, queers, spics, wetbacks, hook-nosed Jesus killers, japs, krauts, canucks, surrender-monkeys, redskins, chinks, crackers, dagos, wops, yankees, niggers, camel-fuckers, gooks, cossacks, coons, and cunts.
Have I got your attention now? Good! That was the point.
How often have we been out in our daily lives and heard snippets of conversation where one or more of those terms enumerated are casually dropped, or worse, used with malicious intent?
What did you do?
I’d hazard a guess that most of us simply shrugged it off, ignored it, and moved on with whatever we were doing.
A few weeks ago, I was in the supermarket, and I observed a tall, rangy-looking fellow harassing some Muslim women in hijab. He was suggesting that they weren’t welcome here, and should go back to where they came from. I interposed myself between him and the ladies, and simply stated, “That’s uncalled for, sir.” He immediately softened his tone, stated he “served in Iraq”, and that he “loved Muslims”. Again I simply stated, “Your words say otherwise.” I held my ground with arms crossed, glaring harshly at him. He said not a word more and disappeared further into the market.
In the wake of the Supreme Court decision regarding gay marriage, and even more so in the debate about the Battle Flag of General Lee’s Army…much has been said about “political correctness” going too far. There are things that we shouldn’t say or do anymore because it might offend somebody.
You read my opening paragraph. I hope I did offend somebody today – it was intentional. If you felt uncomfortable reading those words, imagine how a recipient of those aural barbs might feel if they were the target of them being used as they were intended; to hurt, denigrate, frighten, bully, and intimidate.
“Polite” society doesn’t say those words anymore, and many of us are offended by them when we hear them. But I daresay that’s the wrong approach. Given what they mean when used in context – I say, fire away. Speak your mind. Say the most vile and hurtful things you can think of. I might find it offensive, but I have a purpose in hearing them.
It allows me, and indeed, the rest of that aforementioned “polite” society to mark you. Calling somebody a faggot, nigger, rag-head, or something even worse, reveals your inner soul to all those around you.
In short, using those terms that I find offensive tells me something about you. I can now safely brand you as a closed-minded, narrow, bigot…and somebody who is to be avoided at all costs. So go ahead – be politically incorrect. I and the rest of society will thank you for that Scarlet Letter you now so proudly wear.
