What happened to political correctness?

What happened to progressive language? What happened to political correct language?

Well, it’s mostly dead to be honest. Things have gone back to the way they were before political correct language began, to 1950s style language. You see, the far-right made fun of political correctness and being thin-skinned wet doilies — just like the party they mostly support at voting time (the right-wing “Democratic” Party), the fake “liberals” — the fake “progressives” and fake “liberals” abandoned PC language and returned to using the outdated 1940-50s language that the far-right uses. That’s based on what I see on so-called “progressive” and “liberal” websites these days. And they (the fake-progressives and fake-liberals) can’t stand to be called on this either. I’ve pointed this out to them on occasion only to be jumped on for doing so. They resented being called on it and proceeded to go through all type of mental calisthenics to justify returning to the past. If there were legitimate reasons for using the 1940-50s language, why did they start using PC language? To some it was merely a cheap fad. “Everybody else is doing it” being the sheeple rationale. So today, they’re back to deliberately using mainstream conformist language that the right-wing use while pretending to be “progressive.” The fact is they’re “progressive” in name-only. They’re not about to do anything meaningful of a genuine progressive nature that might disturb their comfort level. These days, progressives are a empty shell of their former selves.

The Left (genuine Left) once used progressive language, some examples:

Gender-neutral language has mostly been abandoned, in favour of sexist and chauvinistic “man” centered language.

Server (gender-neutral), not waiter or waitress.

Humankind or (as Canadian PM Justin Trudeau says peoplekind), not the sexist mankind. Women don’t care to be referred to as “man.”

International, not foreign (many student exchange programmes are now called International Student Exchange Programme and not Foreign Student Exchange).

Developing nations, not the outdated Cold War language “third world countries/nations.” There’s only one world that we all live on, so how can there be a “third world?” I heard Juan González of (neo-liberal?) DemocracyNow! refer to “third world” countries. WTF? What happened to him? And Univisión is the only word from español that Amy Goodman pronounces correctly. All other words from español she pronounces as if they were an English language word. What’s happened to that show?

These days, fake-progressives are back to using “American” and “Americans” rather than “US Americans” or USians. They enjoy typing all those extra letters for “America” do they instead of the two letters for US? Some people are saying “US Americans,” which is correct. That is honouring the fact that anyone living in North America, Central America or South America is an American, not just people living in the non-United States (USians). Also, some of us wish that the US would finally be given a real name. The United States of America is not a real name; it’s just the states of a hemisphere. All other countries have a real name: Canada, Colombia, Argentina, France, Russia, and so forth.

A planet is neither male or female. Stop giving a gender to the Earth. The Earth does not have a vagina or a penis, therefore it is not “Mother Earth” as some people say.

Either the fake-progressives/fake-liberals are now willfully-ignorant of international languages or are intentionally disrespecting international languages: über or Führer or El Niño come to mind. über without the umlaut is not correct form. The same for Führer. El Niño is not correct without the Tilde over the n.

Well, they apparently resent being politely corrected — is that how they behaved in school? — when they incorrectly write these words. And just like the far-right, they continue to write them incorrectly in their future comments as if proud of their ignorance. That is just like the far-right. They are not the only words they disrespect. They’re just the ones that immediately come to mind. The US corporate media also disrespect all other international languages other than US English. Although there is one word they get correct and that’s résumé. It’s surprising they don’t remove the accents like they do for all other international languages which use accent marks. They especially seem to find it funny when they mangle words from español. I remember when Whoopie Goldberg — does she pretend to be a progressive or liberal? — seemed to find it funny when she wasn’t prepared and mangled Univisión when introducing her guest from that network.

Genuine progressives also once stood for:

Live wherever you want on the Earth. A world without borders. Deity-free thinking. There was a time when the genuine Left were either atheists or agnostics. They did not talk about god or “god bless” or “you’re in my prayers.” Ugh. Not these days. They sound no differently than some of the far-right and their worship of a Floating Cloud Being. WTF?

The Left always drifts to the right. The Left certainly isn’t what it used to be and they hate to be called on their shit. They can’t stand the truth being spoken about themselves.

The genuine Left once stood for the following. But the list has become very watered-down and diluted over the years: Education for All, Universal Healthcare, The US Constitution, Worker’s Rights,
Human Rights, Environmental Rights: But only to an extent. They often abandon their concerns about the environment when it gets in the way of their comfort level or their having to do anything that requires them changing their own behaviour. How many of the Left enjoy driving around in big SUVs, as opposed to take the metro in their city? How many of the Left refuse to live close to where they work and therefore have 2-4 hours of commute time (pre-COVID)? One of my neighbours is frequently talking about climate change while she drives around in a large SUV. She’s part of San Francisco’s car culture. They once stood for and used politically-correct language, but they caved to the far-right as soon as the far-right started making fun of PC language, so they started using the same language as the far-right. Moronic. Stand for something, dammit! The genuine Left once stood for: Adequate Housing for all humans, Adequate for all all humans, Adequate clean water for all, Anti-war: Yeah well. The fake-Left of today opposes war only when a Republican is in office. When it’s a Democrat in office, the fake-Left becomes silent, even though they protested the same wars under the previous white house occupant (think: illegitimate George W Bush, but then supported their messiah Obama’s continuation of Bush’s wars with their silence. The thinking being, “One cannot criticise one’s own team.” ***Non-violence conflict resolution, Department of Peace
Queer Rights/Equality, Queer Rights/Equality (with a focus on gay guys, not just lesbians since lesbians are considered “more acceptable” — than gay guys — to the prejudiced and bigoted people).

I was asked recently: Why are you “throwing shade” on progressives because I was critical of their shift to the right particularly in their use of language? Well to begin with, I can’t stand the term “throwing shade.” What nut came up with that term? I criticise when criticism is due. And when did the fake-progressives become such wet doilies and think they are above reproach that they can’t any criticism? You want an echo-chamber of praise for yourselves, do you?

The “progressives” I see these days (December 2020) are merely a shell of what they used to be. Just like the Queer Rights Movement and the Feminist Movement. They’re all essentially dead today. The truth hurts, doesn’t it?

I suppose I’m only allowed to be critical of the far-right. Well, I don’t operate like that. I don’t take this spectator sports’ mentality to politics of “my D team is better than your R team.” They’re both basura. Disclaimer: I’m non-partisan and can’t stand either imperialistic corporate party in the non-United States.

The word “progressive” has completely been hijacked and corrupted by people who are “progressive” in name-only. These days it means eating meat while pretending to care about the environment (the Meat Industrial Complex is a major contributor to climate change), doing a little bit of recycling on the odd occasion, and at voting time, voting in lockstep for right-wing politicians with a “D” next to their name, a contradiction in terms. Most of today’s so-called “progressives” are fake-progressives and fake-liberals. So far, the Biden regime — assuming the orange loser leaves in January 2021; I’ll believe it when I see it — looks like a recycled Obama regime, whose neocon policies overall were to the right of those of illegitimate George W Bush (who now shares candies at state events with Michelle Obama). The Bush and Obama families are best of friends as can be seen in these images. It’s insane that anyone would expect anything genuinely progressive from Biden. Such people are clearly in denial and or haven’t been paying close attention since at least 2000.

Voters on both sides — D and R — engage in some of the same tactics these days while the hypocrites are critical of the opposing team — with their sports team mentality — while justify their own hypocrisy. Such as: A COVID-19 super-spreader event is fine when the Ds are engaging in a protest or gathering in the street to celebrate Biden — few with masks on and no social-distancing — while the same people are rightly critical of the COVID-19 super-spreader MAGA cult rallies.

Everyone in my apartment building — they’re the fake-progressives rabid supporters of the right-wing “Democratic” Party Cult at voting time — they pretend to follow the COVID-19 health guidelines, until they get in their way of having fun. I’ve seen them all violate the COVID guidelines but they like to give me the appearance that they follow the guidelines diligently, but I’ve seen their reckless behaviour so I know otherwise, but I don’t call them on it and their hypocrisy.

The Left are a shell of what they used to be. They are a shell of their former selves. What’s happened to them? Well, they got very diluted during the Obama regime. You see, they were in the streets protesting the right-wing neocon policies of the illegitimate Bush/Cheney regime. I was there with them. But when messiah Obama showed up and continued and even expanded the same right-wing policies from Bush, the Left mostly folded up and went home, became silent and protests mostly ceased. The thinking was: “You’re not supposed to criticise your own team.” That’s the brainwashed mentality of both political cults. So, whatever messiah Obama did was justified by the Left, either with their silence or their complicity because, well, Obama calls himself a Democrat. According to the Left, wars are only bad when there’s a Republican en la casa blanca/in the white house. That’s the mentality of the D cultists.

The number of genuine progressives in the world one could probably count on 2 hands. All others are fraud. Fake. Just people calling themselves “progressive” — is that the latest fad? — without doing the work. And by work I don’t mean sitting on “Democratic” Party Cult websites and writing reams of comments about, “What we must do is…” but rather making genuine progressive changes in one’s own life whether it disturbs one’s own comfort level or not.

But that’s the thing, again, most people are not willing to do anything or change their own behaviour if it disturbs their own comfort level, such as stop eating dead animals. So the fake-progressives jump through all calisthenics defending their “right” to eat meat. The Meat Industrial Complex is very destructive to our environment, meanwhile these fake-progressives claim to be environmentalists and or concerned about the environment while they contribute to the problem themselves. When this is pointed out to them, they get all huffy, “Why are you attacking progressives?” Question: Why is telling the truth about someone considered an “attack” on the person? jesus people, get thicker skin. No wonder your pathetic “Democratic” Party Cult is so lame when they have such thin-skinned people supporting them.

The thing is, both cults — both the “Democratic” Cult and the Republican Cult — their supporters use the same tactics and they’re both hypocrites. The Ds complain about the MAGA cult rallies and the lack of social-distancing and wearing masks. Then when VP-elect Kamala Harris tells her supporters that COVID is not over so please put your masks back on and social-distance and someone reminds them of this, that person is trolled by the Ds. The Ds see no problem with their own mass gatherings despite medical experts having warned against them. The Ds only oppose mass gatherings when it’s the other team’s cultists doing them. Fucking hypocrites.

The “Democratic” Party Cult in the non-United States is not Left, even though the nut currently residing in the white house as of this writing keeps putting that lie out there and referring to the “Democrats” in the US Congress as “the radical left.” He’s insane. Much of the time the “Democrats” are doing their best to enable and serve as accomplices to the Republicans.

Despite the myth about The Left today, there’s very few of them remaining in their original form. Again, the Left has become so diluted and watered-down. I don’t have the patience for them. I really don’t. The fake-Left consists of some of the thickest people. With few exceptions. What has happened to the so-called “progressives.”

So why do the fake-progressives — which is what most of them are — cringe at the reality? It’s because of their denial. Why not call the international thug and bully currently holding office as of this writing (November 2020) what he is — considering he’s using the Nazi Playbook — and that is a Führer? Stop the childish, immature and juvenile Rump and Dump shit. Yah no, it’s no wonder the “Democratic” Party Cult is what they are when they have so many people with a kindergarten mentality as their devout supporters. But the fake-progressives cringe and bristle — like their useless and bent-over ‘Democrats’ — at the suggestion of properly calling the international thug and bully a Führer.

Rump, Dump and drumpf (and other childish drivel) With many of the fake progressives/fake Left, they describe the Führer — which is what he really is; that’s an accurate description! — by calling him Rump and Dump and other equally childish variations. By doing so, it negates the severity of his heinous regime. They think they’re being funny, cute and claim to be providing “levity.” This is not the time for fucking childish levity, idiots. And I see nothing funny what-so-ever by their use of Rump and Dump. Both have lost their effectiveness because one sees them used so much by the toddlers claiming to be “progressives” and on the Left. They’re really as childish as the Führer’s cultist with their “libtard” rubbish, which has also lost any meaning because of its overuse.

***Both cults — both D and R — are so terribly immature and childish. With their constant denial, the fake-progressives refuse to see him as a Fuhrer who is playing right out of the Nazi Play Book. But the thin-skinned, delicate, bent-over, mealy-mouthed, timid fake-progressives (those descriptors also define the politicians of the “Democratic” Party Cult) refuse to acknowledge the international bully as a Führer . To gauge the “political climate” today, I spent some time before the “election” on a couple of websites that are just fronts for the “Democratic” Party Cult. I knew what to expect on one of them. On the other site, I expected anti-Establishment progressive comments. There were 2-4 of those, but the majority were not at all what they used to be. I concluded that progressives these days are a shell of their former selves. I don’t know what happened to them over the years. With few exceptions, they’ve become so sheeple, mainstream-behaving and immature. With few exceptions, they don’t seem to possess the maturity to understand the severity of our political situation with a Fuhrer residing en la casa blanca/in the white house. They say, “Don’t call him that.” Typical, weak, bent-over ‘Democrats.’ Even though he’s playing right out of the Nazi Play Book. The fake-progressives enjoy living with their delusions that we are still living in ordinary times, rather than insane times. They expect The System to work as it’s supposed to in ordinary times. Their Denial will not protect them, and the non-United States is a nation in mass denial on so many levels.

I haven’t changed, other than at times I have little patience for stupidity and come with a short fuse. Mi amigo/my friend hasn’t changed either, other than he too has a short(er) fuse these days. But overall, we’re still the same genuine progressives we’ve been since at least 2000. Unfortunately, the people who claim to be “progressive” online these days we cannot related to. They have lost themselves assuming they were ever “progressive” to begin with! Doing a little bit of recycling and supporting corrupt politicians of the “Democratic” Party Cult does not make one a progressive. In fact, a genuine progressive would not support either corrupt, imperialistic corporate party. Years ago, the progressives I knew were very serious people. Vigilant in the causes and politics they supported. These days, I can’t relate to the people who claim to be progressive because they’re so immature, and are more about laughing than addressing the severity of our situation of the world today. So, WTF has happened to progressives?

There was a time when progressives avoided using the word “America” and “Americans” in favour of US and USians, because they understood that America is a hemisphere — North America, Central America and South America — and not the name of a country that never had the intelligence to choose a real name. The non-United States OF America is not a real name like México, Colombia, Argentina, France, Canada, Russia or Australia as some examples. Today, the fake-progressives are using “America(ns)” in droves, just like the far-right. The far-right — who don’t believe in maps — say “there’s only one America.” Not according to world maps. “Back in the day” progressives used the terms pro-birth. The far-right use “pro-life,” while they support politicians who vote against and gut programmes that will benefit the life of children, so they’re hardly “pro-life.” They only care about the child being born and they don’t care about the child’s quality of life. Today, some of the fake-progressives are calling themselves pro-abortion. Insanity. I didn’t know anyone was pro-abortion. WTF? Women don’t get pregnant so they can go out and get an abortion. It’s not a “thing.” Having the right to choose (pro-choice) is what it was called “back in the day.” They used to refer to servers in restaurants. Today, they’re back to using the sexist and outdated non-gender-neutral words “waiter and waitress.” Like in the 1940s and 50s? Route 66 and all that shit. The word “server” is gender-neutral. Genuine progressives once used that. The fake-progressives are now using the far-right’s language. They’re also referring to the Fuhrer — which is what he is — in childish language: Dump, Rump, and other childish drivel. Call him what he is: a Fuhrer. There’s nothing childish about that. It’s the truth. There’s no wonder that the “Democratic” Party Cult is as pathetic as it is when they have these pathetic, childish, immature fake-progressives as their supporters. Then when someone like myself calls them on it, they are such thin-skinned people — just like the corrupt right-wing politicians they support — they don’t have the maturity to say, “Well as much as it hurts, I have to agree with your critique of us. What you said is true.” But instead, they whinge, “why are you throwing shade on progressives?” (I can’t stand the term “throwing shade.” What nut came up with that?) You mean fake-progressives, idiot. You’re not a genuine person on the left when you jump through all types of calisthenics to support right-wing politicians, using the perpetual Lesser Evil Card and various Fear Cards at voting time. That’s a contradiction in terms.

How long because the fake-progressives abandon flight attendant in favour of “steward” and “stewardess.” They’ve gone from being opponents of the right-wing, corporatist and imperialistic one-party system with two names, to being just like them, especially at voting time. These days, with few exceptions, other than their D-partisan brainwashed cult thinking, they’re just like the far-right in many ways. They’re using some of the same tactics and language. They even troll people who criticise them the same way as the far-right. They’re for war, death and killing if there’s a Democrat in the white house. They oppose war, death and killing if there’s a Republican in the white house. Fucking hypocrites. I read a comment the other night from a fake-progressive that read, “Canadians speak better English than Americans.” Canadians are Americans, you moron. Canada is part of North America just like the non-United States. An American is any person living in the Americas.

Also, some fake-progressives use the convoluted language when referring to the US Congress as, “The congress and senate.” WTF? I’ve also heard that from the corporate media, as if they too don’t understand our system of governance. As I’ve written before, “the congress and senate” implies that the upper body (the senate) is not part of the congress but a separate body. WRONG. The language they should be using is “the House and Senate” because the House of Representatives and the Senate are the two bodies that make up the US Congress. The House by itself is not Congress. The Senate by itself is not Congress. The two bodies combined form the US Congress, idiots. It’s odd that no one says, “the congress and House.” LOL. Why not? Why not fuck that up, too? The senate is in the congress so why don’t they fuck that language up too? No, it’s always the ignorant-sounding “congress and Senate.” People who use that sound like they are ignorant of our system. Again, it’s House and Senate and Representatives and Senators make up each body, respectively. They also don’t know who can vote for Pelosi or Feinstein. The fake-progressives write, “The voters of California need to get rid of Pelosi.” The voters of California have nothing to do with Pelosi. Pelosi’s district is the City and County of San Francisco and only San Francisco voters can vote for her. The fake-progressives recently wrote, “We need to get rid of Feinstein.” “We” — all over the country and or the world — have nothing to do with Feinstein. Only the voters of California can vote for her or against her, and her current term is not up until 2025. She’s not going anywhere any time soon, but these fake-progressives are clueless, as usual. They really are a shell of their former selves. I heard “progressive” Juan Gonzalez of DemocracyNow! used the Cold War term “third world country.” Stunning. And both he and Amy use the language “foreign” instead of international(s). Amy Goodman’s just as bad. She says, “Congressman” or “Congresswoman” instead of their official title: Representative. (She also says “Washington DC” — which is redundant — instead of the official name of the nation’s capital: District of Columbia.) And why are only House Representatives referred to as “Congresswo(man)” and not senators. It implies that the senate is not part of the US Congress. I’ve had some internationals write me over the years asking about that because they were confused by it understandably. So I had to explain that yes, the House and Senate make up the Congress, not just the House and referring to only House members as “Congresswo(man” is typical US sloppy language used by fake-progressives, neoliberals and others parked at microphones.

This article will offend a lot of people — especially the fake-progressives — because they can’t stand to hear the truth spoken about themselves and about the state of things today. The truth hurts, doesn’t it? Yes, it often does. Disclaimer: I’m a non-partisan, genuine progressive and I want nothing to do with either corrupt right-wing imperialistic party, both D and R. Voters on both sides — D and R — engage in some of the same tactics these days while the hypocrites are critical of the opposing side while justify their own hypocrisy. Such as: A COVID-19 super-spreader event is fine when I’m engaging in a protest or gathering in the street to celebrate Biden — few with masks on and no social-distancing — while the same people are rightly critical of the COVID-19 super-spreader MAGA cult rallies.
