SPACE CADETS …. NOT OF THIS WORLD

I ask you. Can they possibly get any dumber or more politically correct?

Is this what parents and some students are paying for and being educated to?

Good grief.  These are supposed to be …… I don’t know anymore.  Smart people?
They passed rigid tests I would think. 
I just plain do not understand how these young folks can buy into this crap. Can’t they think?  How in the world is a hat offensive or racist? 

And what’s with ableist ?  and transphobic ?

I bet ya if released today, they’d picket and demand closing of theaters showing
The Three Amigos. 

I remember going all the way back to the late 60’s when the Frito people were made to stop advertising Frito Bandito chips.  Does anyone else recall those commercials?

The Mexican embassy or someone or some ppl thought it denigrated Mexicans and made it look like all were bandits. In other words, they claimed the commercials were stereotyping Mexicans.  I guess you might be able to make a case for that although I don’t think the company had that in mind.

I also remember and I hope I spell it right, a radio commercial for Lufthansa in which a voice over encouraging people to visit and spend their holiday in London, ended with the tag,
Fly Lufthansa to London.  Our pilots know the skies of London.
Brit embassy didn’t take to that. It was removed of course but I still get a giggle remembering.

But this story is altogether on another planet.
These kids are not of our world.  And if they are of our world, oh boy. Are we ever in trouble.

Take a look at this.

University student union bans free Tex-Mex sombreros for being ‘racist’

The Telegraph

University of East Anglia student union officials orders Tex-Mex restaurant to stop handing out free sombreros to students
A university’s students union has banned students from getting free sombreros claiming they are “racist”.

Students were being given free sombreros by a local Tex-Mex restaurant in a bid to drum up business with a smile, before uni chiefs ordered them to stop - because it violates strict cultural appropriation rules.

The University of East Anglia student union officials even took the big floppy hats from students at the Freshers’ Fair, because non-Mexicans wearing the traditional item of headwear could be seen as offensive, according to a new initiative.

• Students’ union backs excluding white people from ‘anti-racism’ events
The Union has stated that the handing out of sombreros breached a key advertising policy which was sent to all stallholders before the event, prohibiting any use of stereotypical imagery in advertising.

It read: “Discriminatory or stereotypical language or imagery aimed towards to any group or individual based on characteristics will not be permitted as part of our advertising.”

The policy specifies 15 types of discrimination, some of which include colour, ethnic origin, and nationality.

The sombreros were seen as racist and a form of cultural appropriation, despite the fact that the restaurant’s website says it offers a “Tex-Mex experience.”

When Pedros were asked to stop handing out the sombreros they were amicable in doing so, although some students were less impressed.
Speaking to student newspaper The Tab, one first year who asked not to be named, said: “It’s ridiculous - it’s a comedy hat, not some sort of sacred religious dress.
“Who is going to get offended? Speedy Gonzales?”

Rafel Spilman added: “What utter b*****ks.”

But the Union defended their madcap stance on the floppy hat.

Campaigns and Democracy officer Chris Jarvis said: “We know that when it comes to cultural appropriation the issues can sometimes be difficult to understand and many don’t realise that they may be about to cause offence or break a policy.

“So we’re discussing internally how we can improve our briefing to both external organisations and our own members so that people aren’t caught out at the last minute.”

He added: “At the SU we want all members feel safe and accepted, so at all events we try to ensure that there is no behaviour, language or imagery which could be considered racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or ableist.”

The offending sombreros were being handed out at the University of East Anglia freshers’ fair in Norwich last week.
Pedros Tex-Mex Cantina is an independent, family-owned restaurant that opened in 1991 in Norwich.

starts with B, has five letters and ends in ks?  utter b*****ks.
Is that bullocks?  The paper couldn’t print out that word?

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
