It seems that no corner of the Internet is safe from the PC vigilantes out there. There are those politically correct pharisees who are ever ready to take offense at something said, or something not said; to be insulted or outraged at images that are shown and by the lack of images. Example in real life: a reader insinuates that a Tumblr blogger is racist because she ‘only blogs [images of] White people.’ Lack of diversity equals proof of ”racism” in today’s hypercharged world of political correctness.
The blogger replies in a slightly defensive way about not blogging enough images of ‘diversity’, or perhaps about having too much Whiteness on the blog. As someone on the alt-right pointed out, diversity means ‘fewer White people.’
I was a little dismayed to see the young lady blogger going on the defensive, even if only a little. I’ve come to believe that it’s a losing tactic to explain, apologize, or to make any kind of concession to the accuser. Those responses are just read as weakness by the accusers. Ceding ground to them, even a little, is a mistake.
And besides, if we believe that we’ve done nothing wrong, violated no law and no moral precept, by not including ‘diversities’ gratuitously in everything we do, then why apologize or offer to appease?
It’s depressing that this society has produced so many lefty busybodies who make it their life’s work to take offense on behalf of other people, and that’s in addition to the ‘victim classes’ whose very identity is wholly invested in being victimized and oppressed.
But take heart: the young lady blogger in this instance has been receiving a lot of messages of support from those who think she should ignore the PC scolds and witch-hunters and go on doing just as she has been doing, blogging about things that interest her. We should not have to feel compelled to insert ”diversity” into everything we do and say and write about in order to escape being branded a ‘racist’ or ‘White supremacist’. The people who think we should artificially introduce nonwhites or other ‘out-groups’ into everything have been warped by a media which is chockfull of images of black people in highly unlikely if not impossible roles and situations. And this is seen too in the current artificial controversy about the Oscars being ”too White”. What a joke. The media present us with this alternate universe in which ”diversity” seems to be the whole reason-for-being.
That is not the real world; it’s a deranged vision from brains clouded by cultural Marxism, or perhaps from our globalist overlords for whom multiculturalism serves a Machiavellian purpose.
Let reality be what it is; enough of this ‘politically corrected’ false reality. Ignore, or else deride the accusers. Give them no satisfaction by apologies (for what?) or concessions or excuses. They have become used to bullying us all into submission but if they fail to achieve their aim of making us grovel and surrender, then they may not be so arrogant and demanding.
