"i'm Offended". another great one from Isaac Butterfield.
I completely agree with every thing he says in this vid.
The muslims were offended:::: This is beyond reason::: """The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario ordered Alabi in April to pay the tenants $6,000 each after he failed to take his shoes off in the bedroom were the couple prayed while he was showing the home to potential renters. The couple, who moved into first floor of the home in December 2014, terminated their lease on Feb. 28, 2015. """
Stephen Fry was accused of blasphemy for comments about god. But the police couldn't enough offended to prosecute. the UK is crazy with new laws about offending islam because they don't want riots and such.
A couple of years ago an apartment building owner was fined 12K for offending a muslim in one of his apartments by not removing his shoes when asked to fix something. A "human rights" tribunal found him guilty of cultural insensitivity. That is truly mentally ill.
Gad Saad's presentation about the insanity on canada's campuses is good:
The guy with the Nazi-salute dog was fined £800. He's hardly Nelson Mandela.
I watched this clip at double speed with auto-translate on because it saves time but even skimming, it seemed slightly repetitive and he didn't understand the C-16 law in the way I do. I'm never offended (or claim offence) personally, and I do think it's a slightly ridiculous thing to do, but I can't really get worked up by people who are unless they want to infringe my rights as a consequence. That's a different argument.
I have to agree with a lot of what this guy says. There are definitely people out there who seem to go out of their way to take offence. Some actually go around taking offence on behalf of others as if they don’t have enough to be offended by themselves. There has to be intent if offence is given, quite often there is no intent. This is not to excuse racist or misogynist language, but on the other hand it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the latest p.c.terminology, and very easy to fall foul of the p.c, police!
firstly I'm not offended, honest but this bloke is just another plonka pandering to those gammon (google it) fuckers that can't be bothered to think things through and realise that their ignorant views and attitudes are no longer acceptable.
Somehow being challenged everytime they show sexist, racist or homophobic views turns them into an oppressed minority.
Pc wasn't really a thing until traditionally powerless groups started to find their voices politically, culturally, and socially. Who needed to be pc when when nobody cared about what women, poc, lgbtq, non Christian, and disabled people thought? It's seems that PC is more a concern that the traditional power structure has with sharing. It sure was easy when PC meant being a white Christian male.
I'm inclined to agree, but I suspect the that "hatred" occurs more often that he might suspect. He's awash in humor after all. It was particularly interesting to hear him elaborate upon the "it was a joke" excuse offered by fascists after the fact (e.g. "pussy grabbing" excused as "locker room humor" ). My thought has long been that it's easy to make the distinction between those being humorous and those being hateful. The hateful are rarely if ever funny (humor requires empathy after all). What makes one think that they suddenly started crafting jokes?
Lots of straight, white men complaining about political correctness?
The OP is a straight white male who has never:
Been turned away from a cake shop because of who he is.
Been stigmatised by society. So much so that suicide seems the best option.
Been ridiculed for using a certain bathroom.
Been fearful of being beaten up.
Been beaten up.
Been barred from certain jobs.
Been turned away from hotels.
Been denied the right to marry.
Been fearful of being lynched.
