Gold standard of Woke

With our nightly salads around 8ish, we relax in our recliners and watch Netflix. Just recently we’ve begun a new series. It’s called New Amsterdam, which is the name of a fictional New York hospital lightly based on the real Bellevue.

It’s a pretty good series, a medical drama, better than average, which is why I have not deep-sixed the damn thing because the Woke level is beyond belief.

There is no leftist obsession that New Amsterdam does not present in a deliberate and positive light. We are halfway through the first season of 22 shows, so they’ve plenty of time to insert more nincompoopery. It’s so in-your-face that I began a list to avoid overlooking anything. I share with you:

  1. The election of Obama in 2008 was a glorious event.
  2. Interracial relationships are common and best.
  3. Gay couples are everywhere.
  4. Gay couples with adopted Asian children.
  5. Police target blacks often and on purpose.
  6. Abortion is great.
  7. Unions are great.
  8. Lesbian cello players with heads shaved on one side. Great!
  9. Diversity! Diversity! Diversity!
  10. Toxic masculinity is dreadful.
  11. Sex-change surgery for minors is fine and dandy.*

And, as mentioned, we’re only halfway through the first season. Television shows and movies today are, of course, crammed with PC propaganda, but New Amsterdam takes it to an incredibly high level. Alas, it’s still an interesting story.

There is one puzzling thing. The lead character, a straight, white dude, is not married to a black woman. Nor is she Asian, Samoan, Aborigine or Eskimo. She’s white too!

It’s a shocking breach of the new norms.

Oddly, the show’s story lines, with the exception of the kid wanting a sex change, would not be altered in the slightest if all of the PC talking points were eliminated entirely. They are pure unnecessary propaganda.


* Alabama, to its great credit, recently made assisting sex changes for minors a felony with stiff prison terms. At least one other state is considering the same. Meanwhile, Biden has nominated a transsexual who supports sex changes for minors to a health post.

BBC’s gobbledygook

I really should put Simon Webb on the payroll here. He’s like the Limey Felipe Zapata, the perception, the intelligence, the calm, the courtesy, the way with words. It’s like I’m looking at myself in a mirror but with a big goofy mustache.

As smart people already know, Western Civilization is committing suicide with its nincompoop cultural fixations on sexual issues and skin color while China sits back grinning and rolling its eyeballs at the stupidity of it all. China is thinking: All I have to do is exercise patience and wait, then move in.

The smart language to study these days is Mandarin.

In the United States, of course, the cultural fixations and the heavy-handed manner in which they are enforced come almost exclusively from those who identify with the Democrat Socialist Party. With the exception of a handful of air-headed Republicans, the culprits are the Democrats.

But before turning to Simon’s sharp take on the BBC’s “Diversity and Inclusion Plan,” I wish to mention that recently I heard Piers Morgan say with a straight face that the BBC is an even-handed purveyor of news, very little bias, mind you. (Insert laugh track here.)

Listen to the short video. If you’re smart, you’ll roll your eyeballs like China. If you’re not too bright, vote the Democrat Socialist line, you’ll get angry. Then you’ll notify someone to see if something cannot be done to shut him up in whatever manner necessary.

My favorite Limey

Here is Simon Webb again, voicing common sense from Great Britain. His last appearance on The Moon was January 31. At which time, he addressed the Scandinavian embrace of diversity, and the nasty effects of that practice.

Time spent listening to Webb is invariably time well spent.

Diversity is our strength?

You’d be hard-pressed to find a dumber and more inaccurate, stylish phrase than the above. Not only is diversity not our strength. It is the cause of uproar and divisiveness.

Anyone with a moderate grasp of history knows this. Of course, few people possess even a middling grasp of history. They are ignoramuses.

And yet almost everyone spouts the phrase, not just individuals but corporations which, almost without exception, now include the pursuit of diversity in their list of principles. This means they mainly choose their employees not by skills but skin color and gender. This is really dumb.

That embracing diversity causes problems is obvious. Just look at the United States now. That not embracing it avoids problems of a similar nature is demonstrated by unicultural nations such as Mexico, Japan, Russia, China and so on. These sorts of nations do not crow that diversity is their strength. They know better.

This diversity-embracing nonsense is not pushed by conservatives. It is pushed by leftists. In the United States that means the Democrat Socialist Party, formerly known as the Democrat Party. Diversity is not the sole bad idea of these people, though it is a primary one that drives other ill-conceived initiatives.

Deep down, the Democrat Socialists know that diversity is not our strength at all, which is why they are so intent on muzzling anyone who disagrees. Truth speaks for itself. Lies must be forced upon us. Diversity is a road to destruction, a Highway to Hell.
