Political Correctness

Letting an Idiot Speak

Well, according to George Clooney, we have to let him speak:

Freedom of speech means you have to allow idiots to speak, and that’s the unfortunate thing

-- George Clooney, as quoted at Movieline.com.

Thankfully, we have the First Amendment to protect us from such idiots.

The Racism of the Democratic Party

This is why it is offensive to have Democrats cry “racism”. They ARE the racists.

It’s come to this

It’s come to this.  Ask me again why I oppose adoptions by gay or lesbian couples.  The little tyke on the left is Tommy Lobel… before his lesbian “parents” began giving him hormone blockers.  On the right is 11 year old Tammy Lobel, on the way to being the little girl they want him to be.

Conservatives and Science

Original_picPart of the responsibility of calling yourself a conservative is to do the research and get the facts right.  Rep. Bob Inglis (R-SC) cannot make that claim, and as such has no right to call himself a conservative, let alone speak on behalf of the movement. 

If he had done the research, he would have found that global warming science a lot less settled than he is claiming.  Declaring consensus is not a way to conduct science, nor does the declaration mean the science is settled.  Especially when consensus was reached out of non-scientific motivations such as funding and other political gains.

For that matter, what is “settled science”?  Frankly, we thought Einstein settled a lot of science last century, with greater than 95% acceptance among physicists regarding the Theory of Relativity, and yet I note that there is a group out of CERN asking the community to scrutinize their work over recent findings that there might be faster-than-light neutrinos. Note that they are asking the scientific community help reviewing their findings, because their results do not make sense according to the consensus.  Note also that no one is calling them deniers for having the temerity to question the foundation of much of modern physics.

The global warming controversy is just that: controversy.  It is not a reasoned scientific debate, and challengers to the theory are silenced.  Not since the Galileo has so much effort been made to shut down opposing points of view.  Not since Columbus has such poorly conceived “science” been accepted as “settled”. 

This is not science, it is politics.   

Ask your self this…  When someone tries to control the language, invokes political correctness, are they making a scientific argument, or a political one?  Is it Anthropogenic Global Warming, Global Warming, Climate Change, or (gasp) natural cycles of the sun. Is CO2 a pollutant?  Is CO2 cause or an effect of generalized warming—in other words, does the greenhouse effect work outside of computer models?

If you think this post is a bit over-linked, that was intentional.  Liberals can make outrageous claims while offering no proof.  Who cares?  They have no credibility as a result.  Conservatives should not.  Especially not when they are attempting to speak on behalf of the movement.  So this post is for you, Bob Inglis.  It’s time to stop playing politics and do your homework.  Then maybe you won’t sound so stupid.  Then, maybe, you can try and claim to be a conservative without embarrassing us.

Is it finally time to defund NPR?

The Juan Williams firing was unapologetic political correctness and smells deeply of censorship. 

Remember when Obama first explained that his grandmother was a racist, then defended her?

He first said his Grandmother was a “typical white person,” who feared “black men who passed by her” 

In full context, it appeared he called her a racist.

He then clarified that his grandmother was not a racist, and she did not “harbor any racial animosity,” but she had a “reaction that has been bred into our experience.

The calls to defund NPR have started back up.  Perhaps it’s time.  Our tax dollars should not be used to promote political correctness and censorship.  Not to mention bad science.
