The Morning Rant

"Back a few decades ago, opponents of civil rights for blacks were called 'prejudiced', i.e they prejudged individuals based solely on their skin color. Then the Jim Crow laws were struck down, affirmative action programs instituted, and the KKK was marginalized. During this time, 'prejudice' was replaced with the words 'racist' and 'racism'. And the more they were used, the more their objective meeting dwindled away. Eventually it became just a slur, a smear hurled at an opponent during an argument. Its intent is not to further discussion, but to shut down discussion. Sooner or later, the Iron Law of Superlatives is going to kick in. That is, if everybody is 'x', then nobody is 'x'. Distinguishing adjectives lose all power to distinguish if they're applied to everything. Meanwhile, 'racist' is being superceded by 'white nationalist' or 'white supremacist' (since 'racist' has lost a lot of its potency due to overuse), which have become the slur of choice among the progs who use it to attack those who aren't white, aren't nationalists, nor supremacists. It's just dirty words that sound real dirty, which is the only reason why they use them. It's the equivalent of flinging poo."

Apparently, It's Not Only Trump She's Going After:

"Adventures In Male Feminism"

So apparently back then, Monsieur Pepe Le Grope thought it was permissible to grab, grope and fondle whatever women's bodies were in reach. Who raised this clown? I blame the 60s, and its encouragement of what they called "sexual liberation", but which translated at the street level to "easy squeezing", with women its chief victims and its empowerment of brutes and cads.
