Attack Of The Cry Bullies

Ben Garrison does a great job of summing up my feeling, as well as a lot of people I have discussed the Mizzou incident with.

It appears there is little to no substance to their claims. I just can’t understand why the university administration and professors buckled.

Here’s the graphic that was removed from Facebook, followed by the narrative.

I like the fact that college students are angry enough to revolt against the massive debt being piled on their backs just because they want to get a college degree and a good job. They should be protesting because the expenses involved have gotten ridiculous. Then, if they do graduate, a great many of them can’t find employment. Too many are forced to remain living with their parents without a chance at the American Dream, which has now become just that—a dream.

Unfortunately, too many of these young people are also upset about ridiculous things. They are part of a hypersensitive, hyper-politically correct group known as ‘Social Justice Warriors.’

A few years ago when I first heard the term ‘Social Justice Warrior,’ I wasn’t sure what it meant. I thought SJWs were doing some kind of noble, laudable work. I pictured them as volunteers at food banks. Maybe they were trying to help senior citizens get the prescription medicine they couldn’t afford. I pictured them trying to help the downtrodden in society. Instead, SJWs epitomize political correctness gone amuck. They are incredibly thin-skinned. They browbeat and scold others into giving up freedom of speech or expression. Want to wear a Halloween costume? You’d better check with the campus commissar of political correctness first. (Yes, the protesters want some sort of official on campus who will determine what can and cannot be said or done). Don’t want to date a tranny? What a hateful person you are!Now we hear terms such as ‘micro-agression’ which can mean a tone of voice or expression that might cause slight discomfort to the recipient. Micro-transgressors are vilified, shamed and screamed at. Slights don’t even have to be real—they only need be imagined. Political correctness has now become a form of mass insanity. Do you still say ‘Merry Christmas?’ Watch out! Did you accidentally call a man from China a ‘Chinaman?’ OMG—look out for the pearl clutchers—you’re a horrible human being who needs to be shunned! It doesnt’ matter if the man from China was offended or not. He probably wasn’t. After all, he’s a man and he came from China.

What matters is YOU said the WRONG thing. During the Spanish Inquisition, people who said wrong things were labeled ‘heretics.’ A heretic was seen as someone who was contaminated with erroneous thinking. A heretic was going to go Hell. A heretic could be tortured because such a person had lost a connection with the omniscient church. Now that word is ‘racist.’ A racist can be scolded, driven out of jobs or forced to make a blubbering apology because they are no longer seen as connected with humanity. It doesn’t matter if the person is actually racist or not…all that needs to happen is for a SJW to perceive or imagine such a heinous transgression. It’s not only insanity, it can be amusing at times. The liberal scolds are now themselves being scolded by the generation they mollycoddled.

Please, SJWs, if you really want to do something useful, hold a mass protest calling for the end of the Federal Reserve. You’d be doing all races a favor. It’s also time to END the tyranny of ‘political correctness.’

Further Proof They Are Cry Bullies

Black Lives Matter and Mizzou protesters responded to the murder of scores of people in Paris at the hands of Islamic extremists by complaining about losing the spotlight and saying their “struggles” were being “erased.” Their struggles, remember, consist of a poop swastika of unknown provenance and unsubstantiated claims of racially-charged remarks somewhere near Missouri’s campus.

So debased has the language on American campuses become that these incidents, which many observers believe to be hoaxes, just like previous campus scandals celebrated by progressive media, are being referred to as “terrorism” and a “tragedy” by moronic 20-year-olds who have never been told, “No.”

The Overblown COVID-19 Pandemic

As a retired marketing executive, I have a strong background in statics. In fact, I Aced my college stats class and used what I learned extensively in later years.

I find it interesting that the mainstream media and Progressive Left constantly use scare tactics to coerce people into getting vaccinated by reporting large numbers that are exaggerated and for the most meaningless.

What really counts is how many people actually got COVID-19 and how many of them died as a result, keeping in mind:

  • Many people acquired COVID and recovered but showed no symptoms, so we will never really know how many people actually had it to use for a data point.
  • It is now common knowledge that the approved tests to determine if individuals have COVID were oversampled which resulted in false positives. In fact, the CDC has inadvertently admitted this because it is now changing the rules on how many cycles are done for a positive rating, downward, because they want to send a message that the vaccinations are working and want fewer new cases reported. So again will never really know how many people actually had it to use for a data point.
  • While other countries have more realistic guidelines for determining actual deaths from COVID, the U.S. counts COVID as the reason if the person who died tested positive for COVID, regardless of other factors, such as heart disease, cancer, etc.

Based on current numbers taken from the Coronavirus Dashboard on 5-14-21, there have been 331,626,464 confirmed cased in the United States to date. They always report new and existing local and national numbers, along with whether they are rising or falling, but when they do report related deaths, they fail to compare the percent to the total. Don’t you think that might be important!

They are not reporting that because it shows that this supposed pandemic is a total farce and the disastrous shutdown of our economy was a very bad idea.

As you can see from the numbers below the U.S. reportedly has had 331,626,464 confirmed cases to date which resulted in 598,583 deaths, or an average death rate to the population of .18%. Look carefully, that is NOT 18 percent or even 1.8 percent, but rather .18 percent. If you falsely assume that the reported “Confirmed Case” numbers are correct the National death rate to confirmed cases equates to 1.78 percent which is a much higher rate but totally bogus because we will never know the total number of people who actually acquired COVID-19 because so many that got it showed few or now symptoms. I’m probably one of them because I had what appeared to be a bad cold with a 102-degree temperature, with 8 of the 11 COVID symptoms, but my symptoms resided in about 4-days, not the typical 7-10 days of a regular cold.

I feel sorry for the people who died, but numbers like this don’t support what has been done to America by mindless government employees and politicians with an agenda that is not in the best interest of the public.

During the 2018–2019 influenza season the CDC estimates that common influenza was associated with more than 35,500,000 million illnesses, 490,600 hospitalizations, and approximately 34,200 deaths, which equates to a death rate of about .01 percent. The 1957 Asian Flue resulted in ~116,000 US deaths or a .068 percent death rate. COVID is clearly much more serious, but our total lockdown response was still way overblown.

Here are the numbers, decide for yourself.

For those of you with EXCEL skills that want to do some sorting on your own, here is the spreadsheet I used.

 

The Left vs Right On Society

I was born in 1943, so have seen how things have changed, for the worse, over the years. We were taught to be responsible for our actions and character was all important.

Now, everyone gets a “participation” trophy so nobody feels bad, and it’s always the other guys fault, or that of society, when people make very bad choices and/or are complete failures.

The video below explains a lot. Take time to watch it and think about it.
