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

Posted by: SenJohnBlutarsky on Feb 09, 09:23 in response to RogerMore's post Nah, 90% of PC is basically another word for...

When I was young, the bigotry was open, casual, common, sometimes brutal. Women were steered away from graduate schools. A neighbor told a black student to 'find another way home' because he didn't want her passing his house -- and she did.  Gays were beaten in alleys -- and that was by the police.  Jews were called disgusting names in stores and on sidewalks  The KKK conducted recruitment rallies for pre-teens on school ballfields. Women were dragged into homes by the sleeve, or hair, and the response was 'wonder what she did?'  The bigots wanted everyone to know who they were, and how they saw things, and that this was how it should and would be.     

Thanks to the liberal-libertarian alliance, though, today's bigots are on the defensive, far more guarded. They hide behind terms such as "traditional values," "color-blind," "conservative values," and "faith-based values." They express their genuine opinions on women, blacks, gays, and others solely in contexts in which they feel safe, such as private homes, militia gatherings,and Republican Committee meetings.

They express their anger about this change by railing at their betters about "political correctness."  Yet there is no more censorship-shackled, euphemism-loving, dogma-enforcing, speech-code-imposing place in America than a campus controlled by conservatives.

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

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

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 SenJohnBlutarsky Feb 08, 11:09

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
