the mermaid

The world may be advancing thanks to a handful of very tech savvy people, but it sure seems to have lost other things along the way to this bright new world.

Like common sense.

Political correctness has become a fixture to a degree where too many are practicing it as a religion.

University students have caused a bit of a stir, by taking PC even further into never, never land.  “Safe Zones” for example, where nothing can be displayed or spoken that might in any way upset or offend someone. A place where, “never is heard a discouraging word, and the skies are not cloudy all day”.  The idea that past figures for whom statues have been in place for a 100 years, they want taken down if that person made their fortune through or engaged in, slavery in any way. Or had anything to do with empire and colonialism.  In other words, if they can’t rewrite history, they want to erase it.  Currently it’s Cecil Rhodes who is in their narrow sights.  I’m waiting for them to target the statue of old Honest Abe the Brits erected so long ago, who in a speech once opined that blacks could never be the equals of whites, nor should marriages between the races be allowed. He had a few other un-pc words on the subject that today, were he alive, he’d be tarred and feathered and disbarred from office.

But maybe those brainless twits are only vaguely aware of Lincoln due to that famous address he gave.  You know.  Friends Romans Countrymen …. I came here to bury this guy.

So anyway … what brought this on was something I read the other day.

Had to read it 2wice to make sure I actually saw what I think I read.

Yup … here tiz.  Glommed it from iNews.

Facebook censures Little Mermaid

A Danish politician who wanted to use a photo of Copenhagen’s iconic

Little Mermaid statue on her Facebook page, was told the image violated

nudity rules and could not be published.

She received a notice saying that the image contained, “too much bare skin”.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  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
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

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.
