STIHIE: Stop Using Proper Words

There’s a new campaign targeting another injustice perpetuated by traditional society – the use of an offensive word to (correctly) label certain individuals.

There’s a new campaign targeting another injustice perpetuated by traditional society – the use of an offensive word to (correctly) label certain individuals.

Can you guess what the offensive word is? It’s not that “n” word since the campaign makes a note that it begins with an “r.” Give up?

It’s retarded.

The R-word hurts because it is exclusive. It’s offensive. It’s derogatory.

Our campaign asks people to pledge to stop saying the R-word as a starting point toward creating more accepting attitudes and communities for all people. Language affects attitudes and attitudes affect actions. Pledge today to use respectful, people-first language.

And here’s a sample of some of the thought that is put into pledging to no longer use the r-word again:

Sometimes I wonder why people hurt other people’s feelings and stuff. When some people use this hateful word, it hurts the person they say it to to so much that they might commit suicide. Next to bullying, it’s the highest among suicides in the world. People get so depressed. I know how it feels to be called by this word even if you have autism and some other disability because I have autism and I have a very short temper. It’s a hateful word. Please stop using hateful words like this. Thank you.

Now proper forms of speech are considered hateful and cruel. It seems like there might be a new need for a Language Cheka to make sure we don’t use words that might hurt other people’s feelings.

Prepare to start using the term “specially-gifted” for these individuals if you plan on maintaining your reputation in polite society.

STIHIE: Libido for the Stupid

In the last decade, the real-state, home-building, and financial industries ran out of enough middle-class buyers to maintain their expansion; they thus looked down market, to a previously untapped pool of “subprime” suckers.   Similarly, as the “higher education” industry recognizes that its certificates can barely guarantee a job folding sweatshirts at the Gap, it, too, is beginning to view the left-quadrant of the Bell Curve as a source of growth.  

A new term should be added to the language.

Emotional Porn
Noun
A form of self-gratification, in which a postmodern White person confuses indulgence in pity or sentimentality with political action.

Exhibit A: “Noah is going to college!”

In the last decade, the real-state, home-building, and financial industries ran out of enough middle-class buyers to maintain their expansion; they thus looked down market, to a previously untapped pool of “subprime” suckers. Similarly, as the “higher education” industry recognizes that its certificates can barely guarantee a job folding sweatshirts at the Gap, it, too, is beginning to view the left-quadrant of the Bell Curve as a source of growth.

And something deeper is at work as well. Americans pride themselves in resisting the two siren songs of totalitarianism: socialism, Marxism, and Leninism, on the left, and fascism, nationalism, and racialism, on the right. America, it is maintained, achieved a glorious “middle-ness,” a free, middle-class society, where government guarantees basic rights and dignities for all.

What this rosy view overlooks is the fact that, for at least the past 50 years, America has pursued a new kind of socialism—one that might be more enduring than the socialism of yore but which is equally unsustainable and equally dependent on myths, lies, and wishful thinking.

Washington is loathe to nationalize an industry; and it has never been willing to redistribute wealth with any seriousness. However, Washington does use its powers and seemingly infinite ability to issue debt to create the semblance of what a society would look like if liberalism and egalitarianism were actually true.

Hence, the government doesn’t nationalize the healthcare industry and provide services to low-income citizens; instead, it organizes an elaborate and unworkable system that putatively helps the poor get health insurance, just like rich people. The government doesn’t directly provide the hungry and needy with provisions; instead it issues EBT cards that allow the poor to pretend that they have credit cards, just like rich people.

Finally, the government doesn’t seek to foster excellence in higher learning; instead, through affirmative-action and the lowering of standards, it creates a parallel universe in which innate cognitive differences and heritability no longer have any effect. Everyone goes to college! And now Noah is going to college!

The average IQ of a person with Down Syndrome is 50; the top one percent have an IQ of 70, according to the Down Syndrome Foundation. Surely, there are ways for such people to live fulfilling and productive lives. To send them to university, however, amounts either to denying the existence of intelligence altogether or else to converting universities into massive day-care centers for every featherless biped with a pulse.

Emotional Porn like “Noah is going to college”—porn that appeals to the American “right” as much as the “left”—gives us a glimpse into America’s peculiar egalitarian imagination, and its libido for the stupid.

STIHIE: Postage Stamps Honoring Gay Porn

Well, apparently a real cultural icon of the country is Tom of Finland — a gay pornographer the Finnish government is honoring by way of stamp art.

When you hear “Finland,” what do you think of? Snow? Skiing? For the more historically literate, the answer may be the White Death, who sniped over 500 Soviets in about three months.

Well, apparently a real cultural icon of the country is Tom of Finland — a gay pornographer the Finnish government is honoring by way of stamp art. Although “Tom” had a thing for Nazis (recall that Finland aligned with Hitler for a time), those drawings don’t seem to have made the cut…

Granted, Finland’s fall has been a long time coming, but this just might be how the land of a thousand lakes ends.

STIHIE: Boss Wedding

If you needed any proof to confirm Gregory Hood’s assertion that marriage is a dying institution, look no further than the wedding promo video “Boss Wedding.”

We’re bringing back Alternative Right’s famoous “So This Is How It Ends” feature, which highlights particularly insane current events and developments that remind us that we are truly “Revolting Against The Modern World”

If you needed any proof to confirm Gregory Hood’s assertion that marriage is a dying institution, look no further than the wedding promo video “Boss Wedding.”

Made to imitate a rap video, “Boss Wedding” features an interracial couple (pretty blonde/black dude pair) doing ghetto fabulous things before descending into a nightclub packed full of Indian dancers and other signs of the Kali Yuga — all with Jay Z and Kanye West’s “Niggas in Paris” providing the soundtrack. It’s obvious that it cost a small fortune to produce this 2-minute clip.

Note: the groom, Bambo Obaro, is a lawyer who works for one of America’s top law firms, Weil Gotshal (they must’ve been founded by Germans or something). We sure do wonder how Obaro landed a gig there with a degree from a lesser law school…
