It would seem in today’s America that a requirement for survival is a thorough and constantly evolving knowledge of what particles of life will get you cancelled for displaying your “white supremacy.”
This past Tuesday Kelly Donahue, a three time champion on the long running American game show Jeopardy, learned this lesson the hard way.
In celebration of his third consecutive winning appearance on the show, this man cruelly and unthinkingly held his hand extending the wrong three fingers and touching the wrong part of his body. Little did he know that in so doing he had declared his allegiance to white supremacist hate groups and ideologies.
As was so nauseatingly expounded in a LETTER claiming to be from hundreds of former contestants, even if done innocently or inadvertently, a servile public apology and disavowal is required:
“Most problematic to us as a contestant community is the fact that Kelly has not publicly apologized for the ramifications of the gesture he made. If something has been misconstrued, an apology and a total disavowal of any connection to white supremacist doctrines is called for.”
So, according to this collection of self righteous fragile snowflakes, dancing to the tune of their woke overlords, regardless of Donahue’s motivation or intent, he is duty bound to satisfy their standards of contrition and apologize and disavow.
I reject that.
If it were me, I would simply state my actual intent and never mention it again. Every time somebody surrenders to these crackpots it not only further elevates this ridiculous hyper sensitive mindset, but also legitimizes the poisonous ideology from which it is spawned.
The object is to coerce conformity and secure the total normalization of critical theory and intersectionality as the lingua franca of what was once the United States of America.
Of course even that is only a means to the end of “fundamentally transforming” America into a Marxist toilet wherein the benevolent, morally superior elites dictate to the rest of us the best way to… well… EVERYthing.
This episode (pun?) with a game show is simply another indication of how no area of American life is off limits. In recent months we’ve seen big business, airlines, sports leagues and teams, books, child’s toys and Coca Cola, among others, being swept up in this deadly net of wholesale revolution.
Where will it end?
I’ll take “Failed Republican Democracies” for a trillion Chao-xing.
