Pushing the Obama administration’s progressive and political correctness indoctrination programs, the University of Wisconsin has posted what Progressives have ordained a a list of microaggressions, i.e., phrases to be banned because they are considered racist, offensive, code, homophobic, dog whistles, whatever the Progressive label of the hour may be.
The Social Memo, by
The titled of the document is ‘Examples of Racial Microaggressions’ and outlines types of ‘racist microaggressions,’ examples of them, and what they are ‘actually’ saying.
In the section ‘Color Blindness: Statements that indicate that a White person does not want to acknowledge race,’ the quote, ‘America is a melting pot’ is said to be racist. According to the document, whites try to force others to ‘assimilate/acculturate to the dominant culture’ when they say that….’
Examples given of racial microaggression listed under the theme“Denial of individual racism” is the phrase, “I’m not racist. I have several Black friends” and “As a woman, I know what you go through as a racial minority.”
Translated by the know–it-all bigots in denial at Univ. of WI, “I am immune to races because I have friends of color” and “Your racial oppression is no different than my gender oppression.” What are the odds that they got the latter from Sally Kohn, a Progressive and bigot-in-denial who goes through life with her foot in her mouth.
The clencher, listed under “Myth of meritocracy” meaning “Statements which assert that race does not play a role in life successes.” Banning phrases such as “I believe the most qualified person should gt the job” and “Everybody can succeed in this society, if they work hard enough.”
Translated by the Progressive bigots to mean that: “People of color are given extra unfair benefits because of their race” and “People of color are lazy and/or incompetent….”
Such crap, “Myth of meritocracy” clearly opens the door to a lifetime of victimhood, i.e., people refusing to hold themselves accountable for their shortcomings while laying the blame at the feet of others. I am talking about a lifetime of government dependency, the road to serfdom aka slavery.
The list of code words, i.e., dog whistles most often used by Progressives themselves goes on for two pages.
Microaggression, a tool to stifle free speech, brainwash millions (while getting paid for it), keep the racist assault and guilt trips against Caucasians, Christians and non-Marxists front and center and a nation divided teetering on the edge.
Political correctness = soft language. Enough already.
