It’s now “incendiary” to say there are two genders, by Jazz Shaw.
Republican Congressman Ralph Abraham of Louisiana is running for Governor in his state and his team recently released their first television ad. …
Here’s what he says:
“Here’s the truth. Life begins at conception. Government is too big. Our taxes are too high. And our car insurance is too expensive. President Trump is doing a great job. Facts matter more than feelings. The Second Amendment is self-explanatory. And as a doctor, I can assure you there are only two genders.”
The left is up in arms, but at which bit?
As you might expect, this prompted an immediate reaction. The claim wasn’t going over well at all at MSNBC….
An indignant [MSNBC anchor Chris Jansing] told viewers she found Abraham’s remarks to be “incendiary.” …
So it’s apparently now simply gospel at MSNBC to say that a medical doctor stating the human race is composed of two genders by design is “incendiary” rhetoric.
“Progress” comes in so many unexpected forms. What next? Well, wait and see what happens to you if you disagree with their fantasies:
But this is apparently the state of play in American politics today. We’ve traditionally tolerated people with all sorts of rather questionable ideas, but as long as we were all able to agree to disagree we generally just got on with our lives. Now, holding a different opinion than someone in one of the entitled classes isn’t just a case of disagreement. It’s verbal violence that makes people feel unsafe. So you’re a bad person for doing it.
We’re not debating an issue along the lines of whether yellow mustard is better than brown here. (It’s not, by the way, but I’m not going to try to lock you up for thinking so.) This is just science. You can’t wake up one day and decide that reality has shifted simply because of how you feel about it. That applies even if you really, really, earnestly believe it. You might honestly believe that you’re a werewolf. (The condition is known as clinical lycanthropy.) But unless you can show us that you can somehow transform into a canid creature of some sort, I’m sorry to say that you’re still just a human being. A very confused human being who may be dealing with some mental health issues, but a human being nonetheless.
Hate speech will see you silenced, then banned, then terminated. You know they want to. You know it’s the only way they can win debates. Etc etc. But this isn’t so funny really, because they are serious.
