I reject PC. That's why I now call a stale bigot a stale bigot. A half-educated, superstitious slack-jaw a half-educated, superstitious

Posted by: SenJohnBlutarsky on Feb 08, 11:09 in response to VictorY's post So definitely PC... If I read this right. The fans are...

slack-jaw. A racist a racist, a lowlife gay-basher a lowlife gay-basher, an incel misogynist an incel misogynist. I do not allow culture war casualties to hide behind euphemisms such as "traditional values," or "color-blind," or "conservative values," or "Republican," or "heartlland values." I call a can't-keep-up backwater a can't-keep-up backwater, and the depleted human residue that remains in our desolate southern and rural stretches after generations of bright flight (all of the smart, ambitious, decent young people leaving and never returning) the Trump base.

One of the great achievements of America's liberal-libertarian mainstream during my lifetime is that the bigots no longer want to be known as bigots, at least not publicly.  Same with the substandard people who appease bigots. But we should call a bigot a bigot . . . . until that bigot is replaced, as all clingers are to be replaced, by a younger, better American.

Others are welcome to wallow in political correctness, and give the deplorable culture war casualties a pass. I'll call a bigot a bigot.

So definitely PC... If I read this right. The fans are right that the film has every man in the film as bad. {nm} VictorY Feb 08, 09:15

You keep using that word. I don't not think you know what it means {nm} Inigo Montoya Feb 08, 09:30

PC meaning is apt, PC is all about controlling the narrative, PC is any male, anti-white, marxist agenda.. watch this vid PC-fascism disguised as manners Feb 08, 20:21

Nah, 90% of PC is basically another word for “polite”. PC is just a made up phrase to describe new rules for politeness that some RogerMore Feb 09, 07:35

Big change in America over 50-75 years: Bigots no longer wish to be known (publicly) as bigots. SenJohnBlutarsky Feb 09, 09:23

Not the first time you’ve missed the entire point. {nm} RogerMore Feb 08, 09:32

You do realize you sound just like a Bizarro World inverse of an arch-evangelical, right? Pepe_Nolan Feb 08, 11:43

I root for reason, education, science, modernity, tolerance, freedom, inclusivity. I have disdain for those who prefer bigotry, SenJohnBlutarsky Feb 08, 12:33

You are so tolerant to different opinions, so open minded... you, keeper of the truth, you brave person! {nm} Filmstardust Feb 08, 17:32

Appeasing bigotry is nothing to be proud of. {nm} SenJohnBlutarsky Feb 08, 19:39

"Bigotry: stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one's own" So, you are talking about yourself {nm} Filmstardust Feb 08, 20:54

Clingers try that 'Dems are the real racists' and 'calling a bigot a bigot is bigoted' stuff, but it only works w half-educated clingers{nm} SenJohnBlutarsky Feb 09, 09:24

There's a justifiable limit to tolerance. Karl Proper theorized that there has to be an end to tolerance or ideas used to harm others Moviesnob Feb 09, 09:27

The owners of the truth. Congratulations. {nm} Filmstardust Feb 09, 12:00

I prefer the words "collective wisdom {nm} Moviesnob Feb 09, 12:20

So collective wisdom is enough for you to shut up and prosecute anyone who doesn't think as you do. Filmstardust Feb 09, 19:46

thats not what collective wisdom means. Its not an absolute ideology. Its a learning philosophy {nm} Moviesnob Feb 10, 04:54

Well said! Great post from top to bottom. {nm} MiyazakiFan Feb 09, 06:10

What's wrong with your portfolio, VictorY? Is it too woke? Does HSX discriminate against stale-thinking white males? {nm} SenJohnBlutarsky Feb 08, 11:13

The problem is that Harley is SO ANOYINGGGGGGGG {nm} Gogreen Feb 08, 09:17
