Liberal Jonathan Chait Pens Microgressive Triggering Attack on "Political Correctness"

Worth a read. I put "political correctness" in quotes in deference to Noah Rothman's observation that the militancy of what we're seeing now may transcend the notion of "political correctness" and simply become full-on Stalinist thought control or Orwellian newspeak.

Whatever term you use, it is bad and getting worse.

So much so that even liberals are getting angry about it -- and exhausted by it.

I'll pass over the long recapitulation of the various anti-speech sins the left is guilty of later, though they're worth reading about. I just assume you've read them or need little convincing on this point.

On to conclusions:



At a growing number of campuses, professors now attach “trigger warnings” to texts that may upset students, and there is a campaign to eradicate “microaggressions,” or small social slights that might cause searing trauma. These newly fashionable terms merely repackage a central tenet of the first p.c. movement: that people should be expected to treat even faintly unpleasant ideas or behaviors as full-scale offenses. Stanford recently canceled a performance of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson after protests by Native American students. UCLA students staged a sit-in to protest microaggressions such as when a professor corrected a student’s decision to spell the word indigenous with an uppercase I — one example of many "perceived grammatical choices that in actuality reflect ideologies." A theater group at Mount Holyoke College recently announced it would no longer put on The Vagina Monologues in part because the material excludes women without vaginas. These sorts of episodes now hardly even qualify as exceptional.

...

But it would be a mistake to categorize today’s p.c. culture as only an academic phenomenon. Political correctness is a style of politics in which the more radical members of the left attempt to regulate political discourse by defining opposing views as bigoted and illegitimate. Two decades ago, the only communities where the left could exert such hegemonic control lay within academia, which gave it an influence on intellectual life far out of proportion to its numeric size. Today's political correctness flourishes most consequentially on social media, where it enjoys a frisson of cool and vast new cultural reach. And since social media is also now the milieu that hosts most political debate, the new p.c. has attained an influence over mainstream journalism and commentary beyond that of the old.

...

In a short period of time, the p.c. movement has assumed a towering presence in the psychic space of politically active people in general and the left in particular. "All over social media, there dwell armies of unpaid but widely read commentators, ready to launch hashtag campaigns and circulate Change.org petitions in response to the slightest of identity-politics missteps," Rebecca Traister wrote recently in The New Republic.

Two and a half years ago, Hanna Rosin, a liberal journalist and longtime friend, wrote a book called The End of Men, which argued that a confluence of social and economic changes left women in a better position going forward than men, who were struggling to adapt to a new postindustrial order. Rosin, a self-identified feminist, has found herself unexpectedly assailed by feminist critics, who found her message of long-term female empowerment complacent and insufficiently concerned with the continuing reality of sexism. One Twitter hashtag, “#RIPpatriarchy,” became a label for critics to lampoon her thesis. Every new continuing demonstration of gender discrimination --a survey showing Americans still prefer male bosses; a person noticing a man on the subway occupying a seat and a half — would be tweeted out along with a mocking #RIPpatriarchy.

Let me stop right here and offer Chait, and Rosin, some constructive criticism. It is as this point that the typical Political Correctness Mob Enforcer will object and say, "But we're just using Our Speech to mock Rosin; how can it be 'anti-free-speech' to employ our own speech? In fact, you're 'anti-free-speech' person here by attempting to de-legitimize my free speech vis a vis Rosin."

Chait doesn't address this; he just leaves this argument hanging for the PC Enforcement Goons to deploy. (And they will; they always do.)

They're wrong, but it needs to be said why they're wrong.

The reason is this: There is a difference between Rosin's rational argument and the coordinated attacks of a mob.

Mobs do not "argue." They intimidate or humiliate (or both). Mobs do not engage in an enlightened, reasonable dialogue. They shout ritualized chants. Mobs are not interested in persuading someone of their wrongness of their claims; they only care about shutting the speaker up, whether he's changed his mind or not.

An argument from a single author (or group acting together to write a single paper) is an instrument of reason; a mob which selects a target and then attacks that target with wolf-pack like tactics is an instrument of emotion.

Human beings are in fact hard-wired, as an evolutionary matter, to cringe before the baying mob; and they are further hard-wired to feel empowered by being part of an angry, screaming mob.

So it's not quite true that joining up with a mob is "speech" just like any other speech. The "speech" of a mob is emotionally abusive and personally intimidating -- and it is hardwired into our brains to find it such, when directed at we ourselves.

On the other hand, we're also hard-wired to really enjoy leading a mob against someone. It feels good. There is no denying that; I've felt damned good everytime I've joined up with a mob.

And it is precisely because it Feels So Good to engage in coordinated mob cruelty that thoughtful people must resist the lure and call out mobs where they see them.

Hannah Rosin was not dissuaded from making further public arguments along these lines because she was convinced she had been wrong in offering them originally. She was dissuaded from speaking further because of the threat of continuing group coordinated emotional attacks against her.

Thus, the frequent objection to PC Tactics: that they are "exhausting." Well yes, but why? Many arguments and claims are wrong, but we don't say they're exhausting too often. (Tedious, perhaps; exhausting, more rarely.)

We say things are "exhausting" when the speaker (or mob of shouters) decides to bypass the cool route of reason to advance the case and instead resorts to the emotional levers of group hazing, ritual chanting, coordinate ostracism and humiliation, and the inherent intimidation of a coordinated and angry mob acting, as mobs are want to do, without any reason or restraint.

And that is the difference.

Now, the PC Mob types will reject this distinction because -- and listen closely here-- most of them are Stupid and Inarticulate; most of them are in fact incapable, on a mental or emotional level, of making an academic or at least essay-like case.

They are in fact low-thinkers. It is no accident that they favor the brutish, the primate-like, the animal-level sorts of "persuasions" of group hooting and feces-throwing. They favor this because this is what they are capable of, and no other.

Thus, in a very real sense, to insist on the standards of rational discourse with such people does in fact predjudice them; it is the same as insisting a horse walk on two legs to enter a race. It is the same as disqualifying them outright.

They sense this, and so they reject these calls to employ the classic techniques of reason and analysis in making their case. They know such grounds do not favor their brains. They know yelling and coordinating Social Shaming is the most they're capable of.

Nonetheless, though such rules may in fact disqualify a number of base-thinkers from public argumentation, they must be insisted on all the same. They always were insisted on -- at least before the last round of democratization struck upon the idea that equality must now mean that a man's stupidity and ignorance should never be held against him -- and to continue ignoring them simply permits the hostile, seething emotional Coordinated Yelling of mob "argument" into a realm of enlightened exchange which, definitionally, must exclude such persons (or such tactics, at least).

If you don't understand the actual problem -- that the "speech" of the mobbers and shouter-downers is qualitatively different from the actual speech of those who deal in cooler, more lucid streams of communication -- then you cannot actually define what it is these PC Goons are doing wrong. On a surface level, of course, they are right-- they are just "using speech themselves."

But it's a toxic sort of speech, loaded with dark emotion and actual hatred which is entirely antithetical to dispassionate analysis.

In fact, the PC Goons seem to understand this more than the liberal critics of PC thuggery. Chait turns to discussing a women writer's forum called "Binders Full of Women Writers," in which minority women can't seem to help but play their PC Victim Cards on the non-minority women.

And they're very upfront at the Age of Enlightened Discourse had its chance already, and that the new Age of Screaming Hate At Everyone should be given its chance:


On July 10, for instance, one member in Los Angeles started a conversation urging all participants to practice higher levels of racial awareness. "Without calling anyone out specifically, I'm going to note that if you're discussing a contentious thread, and shooting the breeze … take a look at the faces in the user icons in that discussion," she wrote. "Binders is pretty diverse, but if you’re not seeing many WOC/non-binary POC in your discussion, it’s quite possible that there are problematic assumptions being stated without being challenged.” ('POC' stands for 'people of color.' 'WOC' means 'women of color.' 'Non-binary' describes people who are either transgender or identify as a gender other than traditionally male or female.)

Jesus Christ, that was already exhausting and he hasn't gotten to the exhausting part yet.



Two members responded lightly, one suggesting that such 'call-outs' be addressed in private conversation and another joking that she was a 'gluten free Jewish WWC' -- or Woman Without Color. This set off more jokes and a vicious backlash. 'It seems appropriate to hijack my suggestion with jokes. I see,' the Los Angeles member replied. 'Apparently whatever WOC have to say is good for snark and jokes,' wrote another. Others continued: 'The level of belittling, derailing, crappy jokes, and all around insensitivity here is astounding and also makes me feel very unsafe in this Big Binder.' 'It is literally fucking insane. I am appalled and embarrassed.'

The suggestion that a call-out be communicated privately met with even deeper rage. A poet in Texas: 'I'm not about to private message folks who have problematic racist, transphobic, anti-immigrant, and/or sexist language.' The L.A. member: 'Because when POC speak on these conversations with snark and upset, we get Tone Argumented at [these people fly off with rage when you suggest that They need to "police their tone," by which I mean frothing hatred, a little better themselves -- ace], and I don't really want to deal with the potential harm to me and mine." ...A white Toronto member, sensing the group had dramatically underreacted, moved to rectify the situation: “'ESUS FUCK, LIKE SERIOUSLY FUCK, I SEE MORE WHITE BINDERS POLICING WOC AND DEMANDING TO BE EDUCATED/UNEDUCATED AS IF IT’S A FUCKING NOBLE MISSION RATHER THAN I DUNNO SPEND TIME SHUTTING DOWN AND SHITTING ON RACIST DOUCHE CANOE BEHAVIOUR; WHAT ARE YOU GAINING BY THIS? WHAT ARE YOU DETRACTING? YOU NEED SCREENCAPS OF BURNING CROSSES TO BELIEVE RACIST SHIT IS HAPPENING? THIS THREAD IS PAINFUL. HUGS TO ALL THE WOC DURING THIS THREAD"

Chait notes, rather obliquely, that the PC system has created what is essentially a Speaker Caste System with some speakers' being in higher castes, and thus more privileged (and thus willing to churn out ALL CAPS RAGE without expecting to be called on it (and in fact getting even more ALL CAPS RAGEY if they are called on it)), and others being in lower castes, and thus quite disadvantaged, and only really permitted to apologize and beg forgiveness whenever someone in a Higher Speaker Caste demands they do.

It should be pointed out that the "exhausting" behavior that he documents is caused by this caste system. Good behavior is not in everyone's personal interest; rather, it is in the group's best interest, but, as in many cases, it is personally best for an individual if he is free to break the group's rules of decorum while everyone else in the group is required to follow them.

Privileging certain speakers -- the more female, the more black or minority, the more gay or trans or other sexual ethnicity -- thereby empowers them to break the normal rules of social interaction as they may please, resorting to personal attacks and ALL CAPS RAGE at the drop of the hat.

And then of course there are plenty of opportunistic and crude white people who will claim to be Honorary Minorities and thus entitled to use such tactics as well.

This is exhausting. All similar behaviors are exhausting. When people exhibit such exhausting behaviors, we generally exclude them from further participation, because we just won't put up with that crap.

But we have many people who now believe that they are Privileged to belong to a Higher Speaker Caste and may employ any number of emotionally-angry and abusive tactics in what should be rather light conversation (all academic conversation is "light;" compare it to talking to you doctor about a surgery) that are forbidden to everyone else, and in fact have been forbidden for 3000 years of intellectual history.

It's time to reinstate those rules -- for all comers. Even for those who claim some minority status which puts them above your White Man's "rules" of civilized debate.

65 In all seriousness, there's nothing really to add to Ace's post. He's absolutely correct.

And, yes, Sooth, this does apply to GamerGate in that it is exactly the tactics employed by the Gaming media and their Prog-Tard allies.

I would go a little further on one thing, though. Even the ones who *could* make reasoned arguments choose demagoguery. They choose it because a) it's easier in the first place and b) automatically removes your ability to argue back.

When you say that (for instance) someone without at a Y chromosome is a woman and their opinion on the mater is of no consequence, the opposing side *could* (in theory, I suppose, though I don't know what it would be) write a reasoned response that explained why you should be allowed to "choose" your gender.

But if they do that, you can argue back. You might refute their arguments and they might not have any to counter your counter arguments. So instead they call you names like "homophobe" and "hater" or whatever- not because they're unable to make reasoned arguments (again- many can't, but some can), but because leveling the ad hominem makes any argument you submit de facto disqualified because of your supposed flaws.

126 Right. Mob tactics work.

They work because humans evolved to live in small tribes and villages with no government, no safety net, no food stamps.

Being ostracized meant death. We evolved to cower and grovel and apologize in the face of such mob attacks because the alternative was death. It's an instinctual reaction.

Standing up before a braying mob is exhausting because your higher brain is going against your lower brain and bodily instincts. You are forcing yourself to do something unnatural. The natural thing is to cave and agree to whatever the tribe wants so they'll still share the tribe's food and water with you.

No. You just have to move far enough up the chain.

As it is said, "Behind every double-standard is a single standard which is merely unspoken."

There is no contradiction: you are wrong. It doesn't matter what about, it doesn't matter that you're agreeing with them, it doesn't matter if you're defending them. You are wrong.

Once you understand that they're coming from that angle (and you might even substitute "evil" for wrong, there), you can see how everything else falls into place.

And the first step, the very first step, was destroying the concept that there is a single Truth which applies to all things at all times in all ways.

135 Very good essay, Ace. (I've now read the whole thing.)

But it merits further elaboration on something that is happened in The Real World right now.

The "people who now believe that they are Privileged to belong to a Higher Speaker Caste" have started to move out from their protective coccoons (where guilt-hobbled whiteys allow the POC to emotionally abuse them), into the real-world meat-space, and either go ballistic or have meltdowns when people in the Real World don't treat them with the deference they get in PC Land.

They've started to believe that their high status is not some make-believe Mage Level in an online game, but is truly real. Watching the POC and WOC and all the rest crashing on the rocks of real life is very similar to watching some D&D boy emerge from his basement actually thinking that his cloak really does make him invisible and his Dwarf Sword really does make people freeze in their tracks.

156 It does have real power. Every government and large corp in America has Affirmative Action and Diversity policies that do privilege certain groups based on ethnicity, gender, and sexuality.

When CEOs and Governors and Presidents vow to become "More Diverse" -- they mean less white, less male, less Christian, and less heterosexual.

173 The reason that we here at AoS, and people like us, are so terrifying to the SJWs, is that we don't respond properly to their bullying attacks.

People call me a racist and I just post this dictionary definition back at them:

racist - A statement of surrender during an argument. When two people or disputants are engaged in an acrimonious debate, the side that first says "Racist!" has conceded defeat. Synonymous with saying "Resign" during a chess game, or "Uncle" during a schoolyard fight. Originally, the term was meant to indicate that one side was accusing the other of being racist, but once it was noticed that people only resorted to this tactic when all other arguments had been exhausted, it acquired its new meaning of "indicating one's own concession of defeat."

People tell Ace he's micro-agressing them, he burps and scratches his balls.

I did a very little research (the doctor who delivered my son was very anti-circumcision) when my son was born. It seems (I can't remember much of it- I mostly laughed it off) to be born simultaneously of the Left's inherent antisemitism (circumcision is done by JOOOOS!) AND the Left's inherent apologia for Mohammedanism (and the fact that much of society points out that clitorectomies are female genital mutilation).

194 A pet peeve:

When did "call out" become a thing, particularly on the left? It's everywhere all of a sudden. From what I can tell, it now has taken the place of "challenge," "dispute," "argue with," and "criticize."

The term has been around for a long time, but I always understood it to describe a particular type of criticism: where someone, probably in a position of influence or authority, has been getting away with doing something objectionable for some time as a matter of course, and someone "calls out" that person for criticism in a speaking-truth-to-power sort of way. Now it seems that you can "call out" anyone on a blog just for saying something you disagree with.

Okay, maybe I'm totally wrong about this. But if nothing else, the term is overused.

A year or so back my hubby, who has long been interested in the tech and gaming industries, had me read a long, long article and ensuing comment thread on a Gawker website (I wanna say it was Jezebel) that was about an app being developed for women. The idea was that this app would help women figure out how to....ahem....stimulate themselves to orgasm by offering ideas of I guess different things they could try. Anyway, the app was deemed by the OP and a substantial chunk of the commenters to be offensive to transwomen because it did not include instructions or tips about self-stimulation for "women without vaginas."

212 Very well put, ace.

According to any number of people on both the Right and the Left, I cannot exist. According to their, oh, I'm in a generous mood, so let's call it thinking, it is impossible that I exist. Thus, my very existence is negated. I don't mean my arguments or positions. I mean my existing as a being on this temporal plane is denied.

I have been told, to my face, that I am not actually female because of my politics.

I have been told, to my face, that I am not actually queer because of my politics.

I have been told, to my face, that I am not capable of believing the politics I believe or holding the positions that I hold because of my sexuality.

For the most part, most of the time, I find this hilarious. That my very existence drives people into screaming fits of existential crisis without my having to do anything more than breathe is ridiculous. And yet it does. I find it sublimely absurd.

For the most part. Most of the time.

But, as loathe as I am to admit this, I do, in fact, have actual human emotions. Those actual human emotions, as much as I dislike experiencing them, do take a toll.

The mob works. There are topics about which I have been silenced by mob tactics. There are spaces which are a no go for me because I have discovered, through very painful trial and error, that there is not one single solitary positive benefit that will inure to me by attempting to engage in argument and discussion. There will be only vituperation and pain. So I no longer speak on such matters and I no longer go to such places and I am silenced. Why? Because at the end of the day the only person responsible for my mental health is me and it is not worth it to deal with the pain.

Thus, I am silent.

Why do people use these tactics? Because they work.

237 Person of Color was invented by radical Marxists specifically to demean and dehumanize white people. To Otherize. To define them by what they lack. Lacking color. Like someone who is sick and weak and ill and nauseous.

It's racist as hell. Everyone has a skin tone. A color. A hue. There's a range of skin tones. There's a greater range in lightness/darkness. That's a function of evolution and balancing the need for Vitamin D production vs protection from cancer-causing UV radiation.

Generally speaking the more northern latitudes your ancestors evolved to live in, the lighter your skin, to maximize Vit-D production. If your ancestors evolved closer to the equator with year round sun, you probably have darker skin.

Snit no it doesn't! Lauren's right, the mommy groups are nuts. The breast feeding ones will insist that it is child abuse to feed your child anything other than breast milk for the first year (oh, and formula is deemed poison), and that you MUST continue to breast feed until the child self-weans at 5 or so. That is not an exaggeration.

I nursed my second child and I think these ladies have gone off the deep end.

257 The eurasian split occurred after humanity left Africa, so Europeans and Asians are genetically closer related to each other, than either group is to Africans.

The term People of Color is ignorant and unscientific on multiple levels

1) Northeast Asians are lighter skinned than Southern Europeans. So swarthy southern Italians are white, but pale Japanese are People of Color
2) Genetically, euros, asians and hispanics are all closer related to each other than to sub-saharan africans.

The left truly does not give a shit about any of their little crusades.

What they care about is that everyone claims to believe in the crusade, and more importantly follows the orders of those leading the crusade

This is how most lefties could support war against Saddam Hussein, until they decided war against Saddam Hussein was beyond the pale some time after the 2002 election, or how they can "out" and gay bait people who are in their way...etc...

266 There's a core of this thought that hits "regular" political correctness as well.

There's a world of difference between using a word as a pejorative slur, using it as a calm label-of-fact, and using it as a teasing jibe.

Picking one of my own labels at random: "Nerd" can hurt. Or it can accurately describe a bookish non-jockish computerish type of person. And it can elicit honest laughter by the 'target'.

Difference?
The pejorative has hate behind it.

The Left has collectively moved on to all pejoratives all day long. They aren't always the historical slurs - but they certainly lodge the wagonload of raw contempt into perfectly ordinary words. Like "privilege".

315 You know... my mom once read some article by... somebody. A Leftist, I'm sure. She read it to me (I was like 10).

Basically it said: "When I'm tired, I'm black. When I'm sick, I'm black. When I'm sun-burned, I'm black. When you're tired, you're pale. When you're sick, you're green. When you're sun-burned you're read. And you call me 'colored?'"

Which is just a long way of saying, "I'm so old, I remember when remarking that Blacks were a different color than Whites was racist."

It's the meth.

True story. We had a landscaper move into our neighborhood once who started using meth after living there a few months. Suddenly, the guy couldn't stop working. He landscaped his entire yard, then he started mowing other peoples lawns at night, and planting things. One of my neighbors came home to find a flower garden in their yard where once there was none.

It was ... interesting, until he and his family had to go on the lam from the police.

Posted by: Nip Sip at January 27, 2015 03:08 PM (m6zoZ)

324 This reminds me of an idea that I've been kicking around for a while as I've noticed the silencing/shunning tactics of the left: our collective concept of "free speech" is coming apart.

Two things happen whenever someone is shouted down, shunned, bullied into resigning, boycotted, etc.: (i) someone complains about "free speech"
; (ii) the response is "that only means the government can't punish you for speaking." Both the left and the right do this - the left more than the right lately, because they're the ones who are likely to boycott your company because of how you feel about gay marriage. But left and right are both fond of the idea. I've seen people on both sides use that XKCD "they're just showing you the door" comic.

There's only one problem with that: it's wrong.

"Free speech" and the First Amendment's speech protections are two different things. The former is a cultural value; the latter is a law. It's true that the 1A only means that the government can't shut you up, and doesn't protect you from social sanction. But valuing "free speech" is more than simply recognizing that the government shouldn't punish speakers. If we value "free speech," we're committed as a culture to the exchange of opinions. We treat the people with whom we disagree with respect. We engage with their ideas. We let our opponents speak, and they let us speak.

You can't say that you're committed to "free speech" if you try to get someone fired for having views that have no bearing on the performance of his job. You can't use shunning or social sanctions to coerce someone whose opinions are different from yours. You may be right on the merits, and your position on that particular issue may be the only moral one. Still, if you try to shut other people up through social sanctions, you're not in favor of free speech. If you are incapable of having a friendship with someone with differing political views, you are not in favor of free speech. At best you're in favor of legal protections for speech, but not in favor of the cultural value of free speech.

I'll admit to what I'll call practical hypocrisy on this. Okay, we can't let everyone speak. There are some positions - "kill the Jews," for example - that are out-of-bounds. And I suppose the response to what I've written is, "yeah, well, your position on Issue X is almost as abhorrent to me as antisemitism." I'm still working through a response to that, and on figuring out where the boundaries are. But I would say that a good starting point is to acknowledge that even on most issues that we feel passionately about, the split is at most 2/3 to 1/3. Those 1/3 probably aren't insane or fundamentally evil. Let them speak.

To use the Empress's own terminology, she is an Unperson to them because they can't use her sex or sexuality to their advantage.

I don't want to compare myself too much to ATC, because I suspect she gets a lot more shit along these lines than I do, but you see it all the time amongst lefties towards any women who don't agree.

I'm a woman so I should count, right? Except I'm white, straight, married (and only once), have children, happily gave up my career to stay home with them, and a homeschooler to boot. The lefties might....might forgive me all that IF I spouted the usual white guilt, social justice, kill all the babies abortion lines that are appropriate for women in their movement or have. But since those are all the polar opposite of my beliefs, I don't count as a woman. My opinion is BS and I've been brainwashed by the patriarchy. I am a deviant from the Woman plantation.

I can't say exactly what ATC's experiences have been, but I suspect she gets that crap AT LEAST twice as much because of her sexual preferences in addition to having lady bits.

363 People who can't stand microagressions seem very - aggressive. Without descending into Freudian bullshit, simple logic and intuition suggests that binding one's emotions and opinions into the PC straitjacket might be creating stress points in other areas of one's psyche that tend to erupt unpredictably over minor slights, as with that Toronto whitey.

I'm not saying this like some Reich-esque "repression = pathology" analysis. Freud and Reich started from the faulty thesis that sexuality was "repressed" (in the sense of dammed up, denied and stifled) in Victorian and post-Victorian society when in fact it was still around. You just didn't have gays parading down main street in assless chaps. Freud was popular because people were fascinated by sex, not really "repressed" as he expressed the term.

PC is more like the repression Freud spoke of, made real. It doesn't allow you to sneak off to the "gentleman's club" of free thinking and get your free expression freak on. There's no secret space left to indulge your "Islamophobia" or your taste for off-color jokes about Thai she-boys. The Thought Police are everywhere, and most importantly, in your own head since childhood, as you are taught by coercion and shaming to police your own thoughts and damn yourself for failing to live up to the unliveable contradiction of hating hate, except when it's directed as cis-normal male white blah blahs, when it is to be reveled in in the "Two Minute" sense of Orwell.

Honestly, I ignore most of those idiots anyway. Avoid them at all costs, if possible. But I will say that the mommy blogger thing is, in all probability, a small subset of the population. They're all over the interwebs, but much more rare in person. The vast majority of folks you come across in meatspace may have their opinions about how I raise my kids, but very few will actually say it out loud. Of course, those who would are usually the most obnoxious ones, but it's really not that bad on the grand scale of thing.

The lefties on the other hand are a good chunk of all the population. I'm guessing 20% hard core with at least another 10% at least moderately committed to those principles. And a large chunk of the rest of civilization that is so afraid to push back against "popular opinion" and the PC culture that they'll go along with the destruction of others simply to avoid being destroyed themselves. That's a lot harder to get around. Those are the folks I have the hardest time with in meat space.

423 There's a point a which one departs with rational arguments because its useless to argue cogently with militancy. You can destroy their arguments with facts, provide demonstrably true examples and even opinion based on well-founded supposition. But acolytes of extremist philosophy won't change or alter course- and no one should expect them too. It is by very definition, irrational because it is the work of zealots.

I make the following analogy quite often and get called many names for it. But in the end it i demonstrably true: contemporary liberals are not different than the Taliban or IS, it's just a matter of degrees and methods. Liberals simply apply their philosophy by infecting institutions such as the media and schools with their sophistry. They enforce it by bullying, a takeover of the leadership structure and changing rules, norm and mores to suit their needs. That's done without debate and enforced in an authoritarian manner.

That can't go on forever and be tolerated by rational people. People rise up against that type of totalitarian, dogmatic action. And it never ends well for the perpetrators.

430 Anna:


Okay. Bitch session. Sorry Horde. Feel free to scroll past this.


So. One of my jobs is keeping track of and reserving the law enforcement vehicles for our gun carriers. Policy dictates (and I know this because I fucking wrote the policy) that I have 24 hours to respond to a request. (Or eight business hours.)

Thursday, at (nearly) 7pm (I'd already gone home for the day), a request came in. Friday (my day off) at about 4pm, I answered the request and made the reservation.

Yesterday, I received an email asking why it took me more than 24 hours to respond to the request. I forwarded the original request as well as my reply and noted the times.

I received an additional response: "I understood it was technically less than 24 hours, but you were not timely. Please set up a meeting with me when I get in on Tuesday (Monday is her day off) to discuss your failure to respond in a timely fashion to requests."

Then this happened:

When we last saw our douchetrepid boss, she was yelling at me for not hitting a metric that I very clearly hit (and on my day off, no less). This morning, there was a follow-up conversation wherein I re-established the fact that I hit her previously-agreed-upon metrics:



Boss: Nearsider, I'm just not happy with how long it took you to respond to XXXXs request.

Me: I understand. I know XXXX's (our Presidential Merit Fellow) always been given special treatment in an off-the-record kind of way. If you'd like to re-visit our established time-frames, I'd be happy to go over that with you so that we don't run into this in the future.

Boss: Well, no. You didn't hit the metrics as it is. Just make sure you're answering people on time from now on.

Me: Boss, you first said that I only had 24 hours to respond. I pointed out that I hit that metric. Then you told me I also only had 8 business hours, whichever is less. I pointed out that I hit that metric as well, even though I was on leave. The request came in at 7pm and I had addressed it by around 3pm the following day. That's well within the established limits.

Boss: Agree to disagree.

Me: No, Boss. Not 'agree to disagree.' This isn't opinion. It's empirical. These numbers aren't open to interpretation. It's not opinion. It's math. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides, it just IS. I hit your metrics. You're still unhappy about how long it took, and that's okay. I understand, and I'm happy to re-write the limits to account for this incident. What I'm not willing to do is let my performance evaluation be negatively impacted because one special snowflake called you at home, at 10pm, because no one had answered his three-hour-old request yet.

Boss: We'll discuss this later.


I'm in so much trouble.

446 The lefties on the other hand are a good chunk of all the population. I'm guessing 20% hard core with at least another 10% at least moderately committed to those principles. And a large chunk of the rest of civilization that is so afraid to push back against "popular opinion" and the PC culture that they'll go along with the destruction of others simply to avoid being destroyed themselves. That's a lot harder to get around. Those are the folks I have the hardest time with in meat space.

That's because it is now a virtue in certain quarters to reject social decorum. That is what tone policing means. When you say to someone who is being just horrible to others "Hey. Please do not be so horrible." now you are in the one in the wrong.

It's power. It's all about power and fear and shaming. There are those who believe, in their heart of hearts, that hunting down the real life identify of some anonymous commenter and then getting that person fired and picketing their house and frightening their family is the height of moral rectitude.

There is no reasoning with that position.

Look. There is all kinds of stuff I don't say in all kinds of forums (no, really!) because it's rude. Because it's hurtful to people who, yes, may have hurt my wee delicate feelings but who didn't mean me harm and who would be upset to learn they did so. Because ruining someone's dinner is just flat out mean.

Because, hell to the yes, I am a better person and I was not raised by the stupid wolves.

Before BBoy Squared was born, I used to go to the hospital where the Daughter of Satan worked and rock (and feed and change and talk to) newborns in her unit. Some of their parents were dirt poor and couldn't get up there to do the parenting thing. I enjoyed that greatly and wouldn't mind doing it again, except I'm a dude and probably wouldn't be welcome in that capacity anymore.

Hence, the pained wailing about #MalePrivilege while women in Africa and the Middle East primary concerns are having enough to eat or hoping that their batshit crazy husband doesn't chop them up for showing a square inch of skin in public

If we underwent a catastrophic economic crisis, few people would have time to whine about microagressions or bother listening to them for 5 seconds before telling them to shut the fuck up, we have REAL shit to worry about

538 Let me be totally un-PC and this is from someone that used to call herself a feminist.

It was a mistake to give women the vote. It was a mistake to let them take part in things like politics. it was especially a mistake to let women drive men from teaching at elementary schools. Children are no longer exposed to any sort of logical thinking. The downside to women in the public arena has proven to be too large and I wish it were otherwise. We have too many young women that are basically mentally deranged. (What else would you call someone that thinks you become a woman by declaring yourself one, even if you a physically a male?)

I don't know how we pull back from this. I guess if we lose the war with Islam, they'll take care of it for us. It is so painful to see that descendants of strong, pioneering women have become these fearful, whining creatures.

547 ACE,

Think of the whole thing as a two-step judo move.

How would one be able to voice and perpetuate ideas that have no moral or rational justification in a solid healthy society?

First, you introduce the concept of 'Tolerance'. And by tolerance you really mean being able to voice things that would otherwise be destroyed on rational, logical or moral grounds.

'Piss Christ' is a great example. It is "art" you see, and it is supposed to be "tolerated".

Then, once you sufficiently flooded and brainwashed the society with your nonsense, you introduce 'Political Correctness'.

It's purpose is to, once again, do something that cannot be accomplished in an open ideas debate - to shut out moral and rational arguments that destroy your nonsense. You simply prevent them from being heard.

Whereas, 'Tolerance' is meant to get your "ideas" in the door, 'Political Correctness' is now supposed to kick all other ideas out and shut the door closed.

So yes, you are correct about Stalinist nature of the matter. But it's really quite simple and specific goals driven.

At which point you should have moved to retain counsel, notified HR that you were retaining counsel, and requested that the meeting with your boss be delayed until both HR and your attorney could attend.

I've seen a damn near identical scenario wherein someone got racked up by management over failure to perform duties during a pre-filed, management-approved off day, and got fired _even though the employee handbook said specifically_ that off days are just that.

What saved them was careful recordkeeping and a rather bad-tempered arbitrator from the Department of Industrial Relations who ruled against the employer and slapped them with a considerably sized penalty. The employee handbook governs.

Never got into a fight - I'm not confrontational, It's just that I shared a driveway, so we needed the space in front of the house in order to switch spots w/in the driveway.

But one time I had to park at the opposite end of the street (no snow, just no spaces closer to home) and not only did the person in the house I had parked in front of come out and give me the death-stare but she left a really nasty note on my car about what would happen if I parked there again.

587 Regarding that link in the side bar to Rand Paul's FAIR Act it makes the following statement.


Under civil asset forfeiture laws, law enforcement agents can seize
property, cars, cash, even houses, suspected of being connected to
criminal activity without charging the property owner with a crime.
Asset forfeiture laws are intended to disrupt organized crime,
especially drug trafficking, but civil liberties advocates say that in
practice they just as often target regular citizens for petty or
nonexistent crimes.



That statement is NOT true. They can not legally steal someone's home without due process meaning being convicted of a crime. They are doing it and in some cases getting away with it. However, every time they have been challenged in court they have been shutdown and had to also pay court costs.

605 here, you want loony? from "truth out" mid 2013:

At this crucial moment for reproductive freedom and abortion access, the abortion rights movement stands at yet another crossroads: How do we adequately address and include those who have abortions but are not women?

We must acknowledge and come to terms with the implicit cissexism in assuming that only women have abortions. Trans men have abortions. People who do not identify as women have abortions. They deserve to be represented in our advocacy and activist framework. Honestly, I am guilty of perpetuating that harmful myth, both in my rhetoric and framing. I often frame abortion restrictions as misogynistic attacks meant to control women's reproductive lives, and that is true. But abortion restrictions also affect the lives of people who aren't women, and they hinder trans men and gender-non-conforming people and others who were Designated Female at Birth (DFAB) from accessing abortion care, as well.

668 Nice post, Ace!

At risk of bringing a cheery voice to this discussion, the mob mentality works in the other direction, too.

I've never been one to join a hashtag campaign on Twitter except when it comes to my favorite sports teams. It's very much like being part of the crowd at the stadium - the mob you reference, except in a fun and harmless way. We even call ourselves a Country or an Army, and negative tweets are treated like actual spectators booing the team: Some join in, others futilely ask that it stop because real fans don't do that.

Thankfully, the mob doesn't rule under these circumstances. Must be that I cheer for teams with great fan bases.

672 I think it's a huge failing of those of us on the right that we aren't using every tool at our disposal to articulate this realization in the minds of the general public. The "Republicans are anti-science" meme has spread widely amongst millenials and Gen Y, meanwhile leftists literally purged one of the most prominent living scientists from his laboratory for making politically incorrect statements in private (Watson became the first Nobel recipient ever to sell of his Nobel prize, partially for money due to the loss of his regular income from the purge, partially in protest of leftist authoritarianism. Why isn't this talked about more?), with almost nobody taking notice.

I shouldn't have to go to some random dude's Wordpress blog to find a compilation of recent political purgings or faked rapes/hate crimes. Something very unusual is going on, and people should be noticing it.

674 "Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to."
- Theodore Dalrymple



PCism was brought to our shores in the '30s by various "authors" from the School of Marxism at Frankfurt to do exactly what we see it doing.

Control what a man is allowed to say and you control what that man allows himself to think.

Posted by: Shoey at January 27, 2015 04:36 PM (jdOk/)

678 I hesitate to question or correct our host, but "political correctness" is a Stalinist term and always has been.
It is Stalinism defined. Hitler and Stalin once had a pact, --correct-- but it was no longer "politically" correct to say so once Hitler attacked Russia. You disappeared from this life and your form from old photographs if you did. There is a political officer on board the sub in "Hunt for the Red October", if you recall.

Orwell and others (Koestler??) just identified and described it. Who is Noah Rothman? If he doesn't know this he is a dunce and I'm glad I don't know who he is.

I don't mean to be pedantic for we, unlike Rothman, know this, but we must quickly and completely come to terms with what and who we are dealing it. STOP treating this like the behavior of boorish people. Fatal mistake.

"Political Correctness" has been a term in American politics for over 20 years now. It signaled their arrival. If it is seen as full on Stalinism only now it is because they are so powerful and confident and their many sheep like culty followers so numerous they voted them in.

Alas, in earlier times people at TNR would have never permitted them to succeed. But the vain boomer hipster dumb asses encouraged them and gave them all the cover and tools and power to succeed. They'll be sorry and rather than annoyed they should be scared.

681 Mobs do not "argue." They intimidate or humiliate (or both). Mobs do not engage in an enlightened, reasonable dialogue. They shout ritualized chants. Mobs are not interested in persuading someone of their wrongness of their claims; they only care about shutting the speaker up, whether he's changed his mind or not./i]

Four legs good. Two legs bad.

Privileging certain speakers -- the more female, the more black or minority, the more gay or trans or other sexual ethnicity -- thereby empowers them to break the normal rules of social interaction as they may please, resorting to personal attacks and ALL CAPS RAGE at the drop of the hat.

Some... are more equal than others

685 Let's put it another way; they're free to speak even if they're pinheaded jerks about it. Where they aren't free is to try to silence and destroy people with that speech. Its wrong and unethical (and against their stated positions on liberty tolerance, etc) to attempt to eliminate and crush opposition in a democracy.

Its illegal to stir up fights with deliberately provocative speech that any reasonable average citizen is driven to rage by. Its illegal deliberately use speech to cause panic and destruction or incite others to do so.

Should it be illegal to use speech to deliberately attempt to ruin, destroy, or silence people?

692 "People who Are this wound up and oversensitive are going to Darwin themselves right the fuck out of the gene pool. "
~fugazi

I don't think this is correct. While I agree these folks don't breed at reproductive levels, they control the levers of culture. They don't breed new PC monsters, but they have been and continue to be very successful at *converting* otherwise normal people into PC monsters. I am pessimistic and, given its success so far, I believe this tactic will work for a long, long time.

693 This article is a perfect example of why Ace Rules, and why ace.mu.nu is one of the true gems of the internet. It does my head no end of good to know that there are people like Ace out there.
