Just a few months ago, Alexandra Wallace was a UCLA student with her own YouTube channel. Thanks to political correctness — that evil, communicative virus that erodes our pride in Constitution and country — she’s now a college dropout who had to flee campus in the midst of death threats.
The United States in 2011 faces serious crises on several fronts. In terms of importance, the federal government’s monstrous, irresponsible debt is our most pressing concern. Debilitating annual deficits are a sword of Damocles threatening our sovereignty and national security. Documenting its peril and the ways we can avert calamity is an overwhelming imperative for conservatives. If we are to take our nation back we must ensure that something viable remains.
Political correctness is not quite as dangerous to the American endeavor as debt and money printing, but, as the Wallace case shows, it is every bit as antithetical. To the left, PC is an essential vehicle for silencing conservatives. It constantly evolves to squelch the expression of those arguments that statists are incapable of answering.
PC has many definitions but the one I will posit here is the deliberate attempt, via appeals to conformity and the creation of social mores, to realize a leftist political agenda. Two of the most ubiquitous words used to justify PC totalitarianism are “sensitivity” and “inclusivity.” One displays sensitivity when he or she allows leftists to talk without interruption while inclusivity is evidenced when third parties reflexively defer to whatever delusional policies the Democrats wish to implement.
More than anything else, political correctness demands that citizens shut their mouths and refrain from articulating common sense in the face of madness. This cultural Marxism is a rigged game and the preferred weapon of control freaks everywhere. Whether a proposition strikes you as crazy or not, its best practice to say nothing about it. Cultural Marxism is very much alive in the new millennium, so interwoven with our daily activities and conversation that some people are no longer capable of resistance.
Under its edicts, the drone who parrots PC is deemed intelligent, compassionate, learned, and evolved, whereas the individual who enunciates the truth is a Neanderthal, a bumpkin, and all too often…a Republican.
What is crucial is that citizens are purged of those unpredictable behaviors that make them human and capable of questioning utopian fantasies. PC is social control, and in no area has it triumphed more convincingly than in regards to race.
With race relations, a Belial rule is followed: Non-leftist whites are forbidden to say anything at all about race unless it’s to apologize for something. That plenty of minorities get caught in PC’s despotic web is ignored altogether.
This state of affairs is a result of Democrats continuing to see themselves — despite being the party of slavery and segregation — as the keepers of the demonic R. They hold that they and their purple hordes are the only mortals fit to decide what is racist and what is not.
They rewrite history and pretend their lust for social justice fueled the victories of the Civil Rights era. Of course, this is nothing but Abzug and bunkum. Twenty percent more Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than did Democrats. Leftist talking heads though deny ever having heard of boll weevils and that the southern segregationists were as integral to the Democratic Party as Tammany Hall.
Racism, both as a concept and a pejorative, has been so frivolously applied and distorted over the last three decades that most accusations have little to do with discriminating against others on the basis of skin color.
The examples are infinite. Oppose public workers shaking down civic governments? It’s a civil rights issue and one linked to the legacy of Martin Luther King (seriously). The same thing is true if one questions the government’s degradation of health care.
Conservatives oppose ObamaCare for the soundest of reasons as everything the federocracy touches becomes inefficient and dysfunctional. Yet Democrats are immune to illumination. Last year one of their senators even equated those who oppose the health care power grab with deceased segregationists.
Most of us intuit that in order to be a country, borders must be defended. The Democratic Party knows better. Arresting aliens who illegally hop our fences is also a “racist” act in their eyes.
Enter Alexandra Wallace, the latest example of a twisted racist whom we all must despise.
Ms. Wallace does not exactly fit the racist mold. She’s urban, attractive, full-bodied, and a devout flibbertigibbet. Fully equipped with our society’s manufactured and false self-esteem, certain that her opinions are important and interesting, she made the mistake of sharing them on YouTube.
Her complaint revolves around their allegedly using cell phones in the library and that student relatives come to campus to clean their laundry. She also performed an imitation of how they sound while blabbing on the phone. What she said was embarrassing and obtuse, but little more. A Black Panther threatening Philadelphia voters she’s not.
Her monologue went viral. Mirror sites ensured the world could behold the clip even after she deleted her YouTube channel. (One such site boasts 6,000,000 plus views as of this writing).
Unfortunately for Ms. Wallace, she soon discovered that being a goofy, opinionated, callow youth is no defense when brought before the fascist hanging judges who adjudicate appropriateness within our culture. What would be dismissed as mundane valley girl gibberish in 1981 now amounts to a hate crime thirty years later.
Wallace’s moronities enflamed the leftist media. A writer at The Nation dubbed her another “example of incendiary, bigoted campus speech.” The Huffington Post decried it as a “racist rant.” The statist feminists of Jezebel followed suit with brilliant creativity, labeling her a “racist ranter.” Most astoundingly, the New York Lies Times devoted an editorial to Wallace’s “clearly racist words.”
This was PC propaganda, but Wallace issued an apology anyway:
I made a mistake. My mistake, however, has lead to the harassment of my family, the publishing of my personal information, death threats, and being ostracized from an entire community. Accordingly, for personal safety reasons, I have chosen to no longer attend classes at UCLA.
Defying expectations, the university responded rationally by not punishing Wallace — although they maintained their cultural Marxism bona fides by first lecturing that they were “appalled” by “the sentiments expressed.” No matter. She is gone, and will be shamed by the event for the rest of her life.
That such a donnybrook resulted from the vapid utterances of a student illustrates how racism hysteria has conquered our country. As an “ism,” racism is so powerful that guilt is automatically presumed whenever an allegation is made.
It may strike conservatives as odd, but merely impersonating someone has become an odious act. It used to be non-remarkable and occasionally very entertaining. Think of Rich Little’s career! Yet precedent exists for its standing as a prejudicial abomination.
Recall what happened to the rabbi who exposed Helen Thomas as a heinous anti-Semite. Just as with Joe the Plumber, the rabbi quickly found himself in the left’s crosshairs. Radicals unearthed evidence of his prior impersonation of a Mexican person. Oh no! Yes, to leftists, whites imitating non-whites is de facto proof of racism. Copying an accent is racist because…the left says it is.
All of this elucidates why conservatives would be wise to ignore political correctness entirely. To those leftists who wish to structure our speech we should, in the words of the worst president in history, “argue with them and get in their face.”
Leftists are not our friends. They are our foes. Being chivalrous towards enemies results in defeats like the one we are currently experiencing in Wisconsin. The Democratic Party has been taken over by radicals who despise our country and wish to transfer America’s wealth to the third world.
We must not assume good faith with those who are devoid of honor and character. They will push their agenda until they succeed in turning our nation into Democratic Kampuchea. Thus, we should eschew pessimism, push back, and verbally fight them with everything we have. Define your enemy. Free your speech. Do not leave the fray, and never, ever surrender. We can still save the greatest nation on earth.
