Woman rants at Asian-owned tea shop for not being black owned

https://9gag.com/gag/aLw44R5

It takes a certain type of special to rail against a group of Asians running a tea store that isn’t black owned and accuse them of stealing black culture. She then turns around and calls a black customer a “c**n” for buying tea there. Liberal logic 101.

Fauxcahontas to speak at the DNC Native American Caucus

Unbelievable.

Despite the fact Senator Elizabeth Warren was forced to apologize to the Cherokee nation after discovering in a DNA test she was 1/1024th Native American, the DNC are hyping her to speak at the DNC ‘Native American Caucus.’ What a joke. Do Democrats not see how this hypocrisy hurts their cause? Surely every Native American is well aware of her appropriation of their ancestry to advance her career?

When immersed in so much woke, no wonder the jokes write themselves.

Halle Berry apologizes for gender appropriation

Now acting is off limits.

Halle Berry has issued an apology to the cancel culture mob for accepting a role to play a transgender character. She will no longer play the part and will now use her cisgender voice to promote better representation. Cringeworthy.

Aren’t actors/actresses chosen for their ability to act as those they are not? Isn’t the point of picking stars to play roles connected to box office takings?

Should Berry apologize for playing a CIA agent in a James Bond flick? Should CIA agents be able to tell their own story? Where was her voice for such vocational appropriation? What about Catwoman?

Maybe a real psychopathic serial killer should have played Hannibal Lector and not Anthony Hopkins because it might have engaged in homicidal appropriation.

Here’s an idea. Perhaps Hollywood should set up a politburo staffed with radical Marxists who will dictate to producers who they can typecast in roles for their movies. Perhaps stories should also be vetted. Historical movies will erase fact and be rewritten. Truth be told we’re already there.

The movie Dunkirk was criticized for not having enough actors of colour or women in it and First Man deleted the scene of Neil Armstrong planting an American flag on the moon, sort of a significant point in history that celebrated American exceptionalism.

Self loathing is just getting so pathetic and boring.

In a Time of Universal Deceit, Telling the Truth Is a Revolutionary Act

The activists demanding society changes to their version of a new world order are those least qualified to set the rules for the majority.

Gone are legal and democratic processes. Bypass all that. Topple statues, rewrite history and vilify anyone who wishes to have a civil discourse on how to make changes that benefit all, not just the few.

It is all too easy for those who have little clue of history to tell us about what the future should look like.

Who can blame them? No one is standing up to them.

Police officers taking knees despite not being guilty of any crimes themselves, corporates removing products they were happy to sell for decades on the basis it is now chic to make gushing virtue signaling PR releases to avoid censure and politicians who have been too weak to put anything meaningful on record. Gutless.

Where is the debate? Is this a society the plurality want? Activists riding roughshod over civility under the pretense of injustice is desirable? In other words, fight racism with more racism. Fight sexism with more sexism and protest violence with more violence against people completely unrelated to the cause. Cancel movies, sporting team chants and even comedy. They will tell you what is acceptable.

Decent people are prepared to accept improvements in society. They don’t see it achievable with defunded police, censorship or autonomous zones.

Perhaps CHAZ/CHOP is the perfect example of what the apparatchiks who scream the loudest, covet. For them, Day 1, Year 0 is a mission. Never mind the hypocrisy of everything it stands for. No police, rule by unelected warlords, mob violence with street administered kangaroo courts, demands for whites to compensate blacks and walls with strict immigration policies. That is not all of it. Everything they reject in a democratic society they endorse in CHAZ.

We are being led by cowards. The more our law makers and companies surrender to appeasing the mob, the more they are emboldened.

Like most decent people, we don’t need sanctimonious lectures from corporates, sporting bodies and law makers, many with sordid pasts, on how we should check our privileges and reflect on feeling guilty about things which don’t define us nor ever given a thought.

Yet this is what is happening. Complete submission to a fringe minority who use threats an intimidation to foster change. Who knew shaving required lectures on toxic masculinity? Who knew skin whitening cream was inappropriate despite pale skin being desirable in certain cultures for centuries before people of other races were even known about? Everything is at risk of appropriation.

No thanks.

We’ll continue to make noise in full knowledge we will be the first to be locked up in a new world order because “In a Time of Universal Deceit — Telling the Truth Is a Revolutionary Act.”

Pelosi slammed for her use of African Kente scarf during ceremony

If Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi isn’t showing the extent of her ice cream stocks in a $24,000 freezer during COVID19 lockdown, she decided to take virtue signaling to a whole new level with the appropriation of a Kente scarf to show solidarity.

This lovely lady from Africa wasn’t having any of it.

Keep up the good work Nancy. You’re not fooling the very people you seek to represent. Doesn’t she have ‘culturally aware’ people on her staff across this type of stunt?

CM unreservedly apologises to teenagers, mutants, ninjas & turtles

Image result for time magazine brown face

CM unreservedly apologises to all teenagers, mutants, ninjas and turtles for wearing a TMNT costume 28 years ago. CM hopes no one was offended by pretending to be 19 when I was actually 20 at the time. It was inappropriate and CM deeply regrets the use of the word “Cowabunga, dudes” when referring to Amanda and Claire outside the ANU Refectory.

For the record, CM cannot stand Justin Trudeau on so many levels. From the use of the word, ‘people kind‘ to cardboard cutouts of himself sent to Canadian embassies around the world. The worst of all has been his meddling in the SNC Lavalin affair of which he was found guilty.

However, the liberal media meltdown over Justin Trudeau for wearing brown face at an Arabian Nights costume party in 2001 is taking faux outrage to new levels. Isn’t the point of “fancy dress” to look as close as possible to the character one is trying to mimic? The journalists talking about “regret”. Could they be any more pathetic?

Remember the poor kid who idolized Nic Naitanui, (a coloured AFL player) so much so he went to great lengths to look identical to his hero? All she was doing was trying to pretend to be the man she clearly looked up to. There was no hint of racism to be found yet the mob descended to pillory the poor lass. Nic even tweeted that he was touched by the gesture before the Twitterati bullied him into suggesting he needed to be educated about his own culture. Surely the litmus test is that if he wasn’t offended, why should anyone else be?

In 2019, basically, everything is off-limits. Lots of terrible things happened decades ago. However, to push hard in the oppression olympics seems all that matters these days. The effort to achieve the gold medal in victimhood is something to aspire to.

As much as CM can not stand Trudeau, his actions were unlikely at any time to be insensitive, racially motivated or intentionally hurtful. So for once Justin, you should just tell people to get a life.

If any person of any colour makes fun of CM as a white man with a receding hairline, slightly bulging waistline and poor dress sense, CM will not be in the least bit offended. CM, if instructed by the Twitterati, will issue an unconditional apology for decades of white privilege and express deep regret over the trauma caused by people who lived 100 years before CM was born and has no relation.

Maybe the best way to sort out the faux outrage mob is to demand that their past of 20 years ago is brought up and blasted around the world. Jonathan Pie summed up the oppression obsession best here.

NSW Police forced to apologize to Arab community

So apparently terrorist training has been belted by the PC mob, formally in the name of the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT). The NSW Police has been ordered to apologize to the Arab community for using them as the perpetrators in a training exercise on Sydney trains. Presumably, the white officers will be criticized for cultural appropriation while they’re at it.

One supposes if the police had used terrorists kitted out like Brenton Tarrant of Christchurch infamy then they would be forced to apologize for insensitivity to the victims. Just can’t win.

Why not just scrap training altogether and adopt the Sadiq Khan school of “terrorism is just part and parcel of living in a big city

Naked chef faces naked stupidity

CM is not a great fan of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. He was the one threatening to leave the UK if citizens voted ‘leave the EU’ in the Brexit referendum. (Un)fortunately for most liberally minded celebrities who lay down ultimatums to their adoring fans, they ignored him and he’s still here. Hypocrisy anyone? However CM will defend him against left wing lunatics accusing him of cultural appropriation in the kitchen.

It’s probably harder to believe than making ‘punchy jerk rice’ but a UK Labour MP Dawn Butler said that Jamie Oliver must stop the cultural appropriation of Jamaica. The shadow minister for women and equalities, wrote,

I’m just wondering do you know what #Jamaican #jerk actually is? It’s not just a word you put before stuff to sell products… Your jerk rice is not OK. This appropriation from Jamaica needs to stop.

Factually we could say Jamie Oliver has culturally appropriated the Italians, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese and a whole host of other nations’ with respect to their cuisine. Perhaps he should be forced to pay any monies gained from his success back to the countries he lifted these dishes from. Perhaps anyone who has bought his books should be hauled via drive thru kangaroo courts and summarily executed for brazen bigotry in the kitchen. Why not enforce state officials to monitor parents to ensure their children don’t develop a liking to culturally inappropriate dishes.

The Spectator wrote about other ridiculous events where evil whites plotted to allow people to judge for themselves whether they wanted to dine and consume their products.

Last year a burrito van in Portland was forced out of business after activists accused its two white owners of ‘stealing’ their recipes from Mexico. Soon afterwards, a list was circulated of similarly inadmissible behaviour entitled ‘(Alternatives to) White-Owned Appropriative Restaurants in Portland’. It named and shamed dozens of establishments and included suggestions of more acceptable places owned by ‘people of colour’. In February, the firm that runs the canteen at New York University sacked two white working-class men after they devised an African-American menu to celebrate Black History Month that was deemed ‘racially insensitive’ by a middle-class black student.

This politically correct nonsense needs to stop. Surely individuals can decide from themselves whether they can literally stomach a chef’s cuisine without him or her declaring white privilege before serving. Honestly how many actually care about this absurd nonsense? Probably less than 0.1% might get triggered.

Sure, one could argue that a Japanese chef adds authenticity at a sushi counter as does an Australian burning sausages on a BBQ. However when politicians think serving up such utter stupidity to constituents somehow creates value they only prove just how a lack of intelligence is completely inedible in any culture.

Given the current malaise in politics around the world is it fair to say there are more important fish to fry than accusing chefs of culinary expression.

N.B. CM would like to apologise if any kangaroos were offended by the misappropriation of their species in this article, including wallabies or any other animals identifying as kangaroos.

Trudeau channels the Griswolds

Remember Chevy Chase in European Vacation attempting to be savvy, cool and fashionable by dressing like the Italians but it going so horribly wrong?  Well Canadian PM Justin Trudeau has tried to instill his sense of being culturally in touch by dressing his family as Indians. Even the Indians think it’s a bit much. Perhaps Indian PM Modi should return the favour and dress like a lumberjack provided he can get his axe through customs on his next visit to Canada. Typical patronizing liberal trying to show us all his grasp on diversity and cultural appropriation. When Trudeau swings through Japan will he wear a samurai outfit resplendent with a chonmage top knot? What an embarrassment!

We thought the cardboard cut outs of himself distributed to Canadian embassies was a joke. This ratchets it multiple levels. Can’t wait for Candice Bergen to shred him over his Indian clothing choices in coming sessions of Canadian parliament.
