Not Authorized !

If there is one thing that makes me really sick, disgusted, about to vomit is this bullshit thing called "politically correct" - and when pushed to the extreme, it becomes so fucking irrational, unreal, deeply hypocritical and borders on tyranny, nay -- becomes tyranny itself...

I must admit, the "left" whatever this word means is more guilty of it than the "right", that is why I find leftists and liberals in general too be way more hypocritical and fake to the bone, than their "rightist" counterparts...

There is also the gender politically correct and the racial politically correct and the religiously politically correct and next you will be asked to fart in a politically correct way too -- fucking unreal !

Let me give you a few examples...

Take for instance the Jewish state of Israel...God forbid that you criticize the Jews for anything, they are the chosen people of God. God forbid that you say the Jewish State of Israel which is comprised of Jews -- has behaved as the most murderous, racist, brutal, psychopath in modern history...No you have to be really careful and say it is not the Jews of the Jewish State of Israel, it is the Zionists of the Jewish State of Israel -- otherwise they will point the finger at you and call you "revisionist", "anti-Semite" and all the rest of the bullshit we have heard for decades....A Jew can only be a victim never a perpetrator.

The thousands of Palestinians slaughtered in Gaza in the space of 20 days is a myth, an optical illusion, it never happened. Their children were not murdered in cold blood. There was no white phosphorus used and homes and buildings were not bombed...the only bad guy is the Arab and preferably a Muslim Arab.

Mind you the Christian Arabs are not faring all that well in Israel either. They keep getting spat on, and the Prophet Jesus and the blessed Mary are ridiculed, slandered and insulted...but that is okay really...as long as a Jew does it.

But the other way is anti-Semitic... and delegations will be sent to the Vatican...and demonstrations will take place in every single capital in the West, and the media will cover it 24/7 ...

But notice if Muslims walk in a demonstration against the Danish cartoons which slandered the prophet Mohamed, that is considered very "backward"....Arab and Muslims should be above such "petty issues", so do the Christians really. Why should they get offended at having their faiths slandered and their prophets insulted.

Take another example -- America. If anyone criticizes America and the Americans, they are hate-filled terrorists. But America's track record in contemporary history is one of the worst known to mankind...but that is okay, because America like Israel is above the law.

Never mind that America has obliterated a whole nation -Iraq and killed one million of its people in 5 years. Never mind that it stole, plundered, pillaged its resources. Never mind that it erased its history. Never mind that it raped and tortured its men and women. Never mind that it imposed sanctions that starved its population to death. Never mind that it generously used DU, Napalm and God knows what other lethal toxic shit. Never mind that it destroyed its infrastructure. Never mind that it installed a sectarian theocracy, never mind that it exiled 5 million outside their country...never mind any of that, but one should not criticize neither America nor the American people. That would be hate-filled....But all the murder, mayhem, destruction and shit that America has done is not hate-filled and not terrorist...

Now let's get to race. One should never talk about Black Americans, Native Americans, Chicanos and Asians...Never mind that they were part of the American army and did the killing but because they are colored, any criticisms of them is considered racist. Their killing is not racist but your daring speaking out against them is racist...their insults and slurs against the local population is not racist but your mentioning it and hitting back is racist...

Now lets look at gender...Criticizing American women or Western women is sexist, but Western women who don't give a fuck about what their governments do to women from other parts of the "lesser" globe and who vote for them is not sexist at all....Western women who land in the Arab world with their patronizing, paternalistic, racist, stereotypical images ingrained in their genes, is not sexist, but you are if you speak out against it...

And of course if you dare say anything about the West in general, then you are definitely a terrorist...because you envy and hate their freedoms deep down. You may end up in some obscure shadow prison because you looked and spoke suspiciously of Western values...

But it does not stop there...

Talking about Arab governments and leaders is also not authorized, that would be politically incorrect too. How dare you criticize this or that leader, ruler or regime. They too are above the law. Their rule is for ever and ever, like in some bad, never ending horror tale and anyone who even speaks or thinks along the lines that maybe after all there is something quite wrong there, that one is suffocating, that this political paranoia of the Arab ruler can no longer be tolerated, you are immediately branded as a "threat to national security"....

Same goes for sects. Take for example Shiite political ideology and how it has been put into practice in Iraq, if you speak out against it and call a spade a spade, and say that Iran has been funding the most murderous barbaric militias in Iraq, you are nothing but a sectarian, Arab chauvinist...same goes for the Kurds. How dare you criticize the Kurds, they are the new Jews of Iraq. They have been so "badly treated, so oppressed"... and if you say -- hey this is a lie and they are the ones detaining, torturing and oppressing people...you are called another revisionist of the Kurdish holocaust...

The same political correctness applies to Arab men. If you say Arab men suffer from chronic double standards, a deep backwardness when it comes to women, a fake shallow ego and are really oppressive towards women, then you are called all kinds of names. How can you speak out against your own country men when there are more "important" issues taking place. Where is your solidarity, your understanding, it is never the right time...you must be either a Zionist, or some Orientalist or a deep self- hating racist or some envious lesbian bitch, or some penis envy driven woman and the rest...

And if you dare mention Muslims and how the Muslim discourse is used to justify and rationalize away the blatant repression and oppression of women, and the most ludicrous, ridiculous, laughable fatwas then you are called an Islamophobe, because the Muslim discourse cannot be criticized at all. The Muslim theologians and mullahs are direct representatives of God on earth, they too are above reproach.

By the same token if you dare criticize the Christians in the Arab world, then you are said to be a persecutor of minorities...and definitely a Muslim fundamentalist.

But it does not stop there...

If you say that the domestic help you have, who happens to be Sri Lankan or Filipino or God knows what, is a liar, a thief and has abused you time and time again, then you are not only racist, but also an oppressor of the proletariat, and a violator of human rights in general....You definitely need to be incarcerated then.

And where does it stop -- this politically correct bullshit ?

It does not stop....So you pick your words ever so carefully, you twist and turn them around, you hint, allude, insinuate and the rest...Otherwise you may always end up with some asshole who takes offense at your potential political incorrectness and you may end up in big trouble from all sides....

You will have either the Mossad, the CIA, some Western Feminist group, some Anti-Racist league, some governmental Arab Security Police, some, deranged macho Arab men, some Muslim fundamentalists, some fanatical Christians or some NGO defending domestic workers -- on your back...

End result -- You stop speaking/writing and you become another politically correct tyrannical hypocrite. As simple as that.

Alternatively, you start writing boring blogs about how much you need to lose weight, but mind you that may also be taken as offensive to "weight challenged persons", or why your boyfriend /girlfriend did not call you but then you may come across as desperate and not very cool. Or you can always write about what to get your grandmother on her birthday -- I suppose that is safe enough. Or you can also write about knitting and gardening...but then no one would read you.

Oh well, I suppose the pen is mightier than the sword, and mightier than the B.52's and the DU bombs and the white phosphorus and the torture of Abu Ghraib and Gitmo and the slaughter of Gaza...and, and, and...

But hey, you do not need to mention any of that. And if you do, you are not really authorized, except in the given framework in which you can express yourself...their politically correct way.

A word can be sooooo offensive but lost, broken, destroyed lives are not !!!

Yes indeed, the Tyranny of the politically correct is the worst form of Dictatorship.
