People who get offended for no reason

Recommended Posts

I think I'll post the kinds of stories here which indicate just how blindingly stupid some people are, and how our snowflake society has become focused around desperately seeking a reason to be offended, and then demanding government action.

This first one is about a license plate in Manitoba that was withdrawn after the snowflakes at the licence registration bureau saw a picture of it on social media and became outraged.

I don't think they were offended, though, they were covering their assess.  I would guess, anyway.

 

The Canadians for Liberty Facebook group is really offended that somebody registered an Islamic Party of Canada.  And there's no reason to be offended.

I don't think so either, but that's rather a different thing.

I disagree these people weren't offended. They certainly sounded like they were.

The Islamic thing - that's more a fear of creeping Muslim influence. Did you read the Global/Ipsos poll I posted in the immigration topic? 48% of Canadians fear Canada is being influenced by immigrants in a direction they don't want.

Here's a quote from your article that supports my theory that they're covering: "We are still vulnerable.”

They're worried about getting in trouble, which is the lifeblood of civil service work.  What's your proof they were offended now ?

It's political correctness.  Everyone is sensitive.

Cultural Marxists/Maoists do not assert offence for no reason, the reason is to acquire and consolidate political power for their totalitarian agenda.

The commie bimbo who made the complaint is an NDP operative, and these tactics are straight out the playbook of the Chinese Cultural Revolution and this is the Canadian Red Guard traipsing about denouncing the The Four Olds and then daring anyone to stand up to the utter absurdity of it.  When they don't stand up to it, when they self censor and cower in the face of the Red Guard,  that's power, the power to make otherwise sensible folk bow down before an utter absurdity, which is on the face of it  some grade A intimidation, particularly in an ostensibly "free" Western (classically) liberal democratic  state.

Don't assert a level of collusion and organization which doesn't exist.

I was just banned for 6 months from CBC for not properly praising Red China's space accomplishments.

Once people have been indoctrinated there is no need for collusion, the first Maoist will start chanting the dogma and then the rest will follow along in a chorus, reflexively.
