Balladeer’s Blog presents another edition of Transgress With Me. Like I always say, following the path of MOST resistance is the preferable path. I don’t advocate insincere contrarianism, I mean that there’s not much point in publicly proclaiming safe viewpoints.
For instance, I was an early proponent of gay marriage. In fact I openly supported it YEARS before the weak, inept, crooked and hate-filled Barack Obama decided it was safe enough to change from opposing gay marriage – the punk even voted for the Defense of Marriage Act (LMAO) as a Senator – to supporting it.
I still support gay marriage because I think marriage is anything that a society decides that marriage is, but I no longer bother spouting off that I support it because it’s no longer daring to do so. Considering the fact that people actually get in trouble for OPPOSING gay marriage now means we’ve reached the point where it’s mere virtue signaling to drone on and on about supporting it.
Going around saying “LOOK AT ME! I SUPPORT THE SAFE POSITION!” is not being transgressive. Plus the political left now invokes absurd notions about “morality” to justify supporting gay marriage the same way the political right used to invoke absurd notions about “morality” to justify OPPOSING it.
For more examples:
*** I support Donald Trump, our de facto Third Party President. At the present time this is a transgressive position to hold because the conformist forces opposing President Trump are fascistic, close-minded hatemongers who try to inflict all manner of harm on anyone who supports him.
*** I have always despised George W Bush but that is NOT a transgressive position to hold. I could loudly proclaim my contempt for George W Bush all day long and there would be no risk involved.
JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING IS COUNTER-INTUITIVE IT DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY MEAN IT IS “DEEP” OR “INTELLECTUAL.”
PEOPLE WHO TALK ABOUT BEING “WOKE” ARE BEING JUST AS SELF-CONGRATULATORY AS PEOPLE WHO TALK ABOUT BEING “SAVED.”
THE ABILITY TO GET ANOTHER PERSON’S OPINION CENSORED DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT.
+++ The concept of White Privilege is a mere social construct.
+++ Filing a complaint about everyone who says something you disagree with is NOT “activism.”
+++ Critical race theory is nothing more than bigotry with a self-created halo.
+++ People who think they’re fit to tell you what words you are allowed to use are trying to force their own narrow-minded notions of “morality” on you.
+++ The party of the Democrats has become nothing more than an organization dedicated to circumventing democracy in order to force everyone to obey their dictates.
+++ There is no such thing as “Hate Speech.”
+++ The Democrats are irrational for teaching children age 6 or younger that they can decide for themselves if they want to be the opposite sex. They wouldn’t let children that age decide they are capable of driving, so clearly there ARE physical and developmental absolutes.
+++ Colleges and universities have no business holding their kangaroo courts/ Star Chamber proceedings when a student is accused of a crime. That’s what courts of law are for and the accused is entitled to council.
+++ Women, African Americans and gay people do NOT have to obey the Democrats in order to be “authentic.”
+++ All lives matter. And it is not (yaaawwn) “racist” to say so.
+++ Preserving civil liberties from reactionary Muslim oppression will be the great Civil Rights struggle of the 21st Century.
+++ Curriculum transformation is required to stop the educational system’s misuse by fanatically partisan Democrats.
+++ The real difference today is no longer Liberals vs Conservatives, which labels have become meaningless. In 2017 the difference is between Populists vs Feudalists.
+++ Increasingly, the question that potential tourists ask themselves is “Should we go abroad and risk getting killed by Muslim fascists or stay close to home and risk getting killed by Muslim fascists?”
+++ Democrats are fine with anti-Semitism as long as it masquerades as disapproval of Israel.
