Everything’s Cancelled! The Circular Stupidity of Cancel Culture – Grayed Out Podcast EP 13

EP 13 – Everything’s Cancelled; The Circular Stupidity of Cancel Culture

WELCOME TO THE GRACELESS HELL our society is turning into where it is better to half listen and fully destroy anyone who dares say a dumb thing.

Is There anything worse in the world right now than Cancel Culture? OH YES.. REVENGE CANCEL CULTURE!

Because what was originated by the uber religious right and became a hallmark of the progressive left is now being re-adopted by the conservatives and now we just get to cancel EVERYONE… beware.. you may be next.
STAB GIRL and KAREN(s) – this depends on which of which notorious KAREN videos you’ve watched.

They sound like a horrible super villain pairing but they aren’t they are the mainstay characters of cancel culture now and somehow Twitter is becoming real life.

HARD TRUTHS
Small Groups of REALLY LOUD people are controlling the narrative and we are buying it.

PLEASE UNDERSTAND: you have ZERO right to remain unoffended in life and in the words of Jordan Peterson on Real Time w/ Bill Maher – If you are talking about difficult issues and thinking about that, you are bound to be offensive.

Bill Maher defined political correctness as “The Elevation of sensitivity over truth”
Peterson goes in saying it’s morphed into the “Elevation of Moral POSTURING about sensitivity over truth”

Full Clip of Peterson on Real Time (EXPLICIT): https://youtu.be/8wLCmDtCDAM

We need to reject this idea of Cancelling people who do or say dumb even ignorant things because we FEEL offended or disrespected or whatever. There are more of us who think this sort of outcome is completely ABSURD than we think and we NEED to speak up.

As always, I’d love any feedback.

And Now You’ve been Grayed Out….

FREEDOM Matters… For Everybody!! – Grayed Out Podcast EP 12

EP 12 – FREEDOM MATTERS – For Everyone

Tonight is the First WEEKNIGHT of FREEDOM WEEK!!! Why is it FREEDOM WEEK! Because this Saturday is the 4th of July 2020 and we need to celebrate a little something to get our heads around all the FUSTERCLUCK this year has been so far!!!

I plan to Freedom so hard this week. So I thought I’d start with talking about this ideal of FREEDOM which actually brings us TOGETHER!! And why it MATTERS FOR EVERYONE and why when Freedoms start to be infringed upon because of the opinions, offended-ness, or subjectivity of others, it is a downward spiral that we will be hard pressed to recover from.

FREEDOMS = Life Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness This IDEAL is something to strive for for everyone, this is why we had the Gettysburg Address in November 1863: https://rmc.library.cornell.edu/gettysburg/good_cause/transcript.htm#:~:text=President%20Lincoln%20delivered%20the%20272,all%20men%20are%20created%20equal
FREEDOM: It Costs, but it’s worth it, it gives more back, and it unites!

HARD TRUTHS
WE owe it to one another as United States citizens to contend side by side for one another’s freedoms, So this week, lets focus not on the scars of the past but what they have taught all of us and the road they have paved forward!!

As always, I’d love any feedback.

Police Reform & Partisan Games, or, Why We Should Read Stuff – Grayed Out Podcast EP 11

 

Ep 11: Police Reform & Partisan Games, or, Why We Should Read Stuff

This is a Great SPRINGBOARD from earlier this week and VILLAINS… because right now there are plenty to choose from. Ok that’s dramatic, but I’m a little miffed. A couple of Instagram & Facebook Live videos later and hopefully you know where I’m coming from and hopefully this makes a ton of sense…

SENATE Bill v. HOUSE Bill – semantically the same, however some tighter and looser restrictions in both could be brought to the middle BUT… and that is one BIG BUT!!!.. Leave it to one side to frame it so that the other is all bad, and they are all good and let the press do the rest!

HOW IT WENT DOWN>> albeit, I’m confused by the Democrats on this one…

READ THE BILLS and you find the truth about the language and the vast similarities… but the politicians are COUNTING on it that you don’t and that you just want to hear from them that your side is better and that’s the whole truth… but it isn’t. LoadsofRubbish.com

HARD TRUTHS
What keeps you from reading the legislation that goes up for debate in our country… at least the MAJOR stuff?

Make the time, it’s valuable and will help you see through the haze of media and political smoke screens.

As always, I’d love any feedback.

JUSTICE – Policing Bills House v. Senate

Senate-Republicans-Justice-Act

HouseBill.JUST_POLICE_xml-HWM

I’ve been on a bit of a mini tear on social media about the bills, and tonight I’ll be putting together a new podcast episode on this particular subject matter as well as just reading the bills in general.

We have an obligation to at least dig a little deeper on some of these things; because we are largely being kept in the dark when it comes to the content of a lot of bills, laws, propositions (state level) and we tend to lean on whatever idealogical bent we identify with in the author/sponsor. This is not enough, because I believe most people don’t want the pork, sneaky addendum attempts, the amendments added in the last moments, or any of that garbage. Should we have a bill (take the Covid financial packages from April as an example) laced with non related crap that tries to push an agenda, or sneak stuff in for whatever purpose the few deem necessary?

In this case, the bills being presented from both the Senate (Republican written) and House (Democrat written) are largely the same bill, but the media is saying the senate bill is weak, and the Democrats are going to stop the weak bill and write a strong bill, or wait for the house bill. Why? What purpose does that serve when reform is needed and we are all on board waiting for the changes? It’s political partisan gamesmanship, and its a tired game played by both sides, who will then try to tell you it’s only played by the other side. It’s a garbage tactic that proves that most politicians are only in it for their careers and to win, not for the people they are elected to represent. We need to demand better from them, we need to be honest about it as well, demanding it from the people we identify as “our side” as much, if not more than, we demand it from the “other side”.

We must BE BETTER!!!!!

Villains, Villains Everywhere… or are they? – Grayed Out Podcast EP 10

 

Ep 10: Villains, Villains Everywhere… or are they?

We have gotten into this place where everyone is a villain or at least the only way we can have a discussion is by vilifying the other person in the argument to make them seem like they are advocating an evil position or are themselves evil. It’s getting kind of exhausting.

I’ve had arguments online with friends, and we can disagree and hopefully we stay friends… at least none of my friends have tried to vilify me yet or call me racist or say they are done talking to me.

So, there’s that, but society and the media, and certainly our dear friends in Washington D.C. are on the vilifying bandwagon and it’s leaking into the culture and I think there needs to be some push back.

Here’s the script?
Love liberty and our Country? Villain
Want to see equality and justice for the Black Community? Villain
Think Black lives actually matter but think BLM is probably not a great organization for seeing that actually happen? Villain
Black Conservative? Villain
Got questions? Probably a villain too, you just aren’t aware of it yet.

HARD TRUTHS
Maybe this is a repeat of another episode, but it bears some repeating. We can’t make anything better if we just keep pointing fingers, destroying things, and buying into the manufactured side of outrage.

Sorry I could not find the link to video I mentioned. However if you’ve heard of it or seen it, send it my way and I will edit the description/notes.

As always, I’d love any feedback.

Base Names, Statues, Cartoons & The Losing Side of Symbolic Victory – Grayed Out Podcast EP 9

 

Ep 9: Base Names, Statues, Cartoons & The Losing Side of Symbolic Victory…

THIS TIME AROUND… I’M KIND OF TAKING A SIDE… but not the way one would expect and hopefully in a way that makes, as Arsenio used to say, go hmm….

SYMBOLIC VICTORY – There are symbolic victories throughout history that have turned out to be just that, and came before the overall demise of the winner. WW2 gave us some prime examples just to point in a general direction.

Here is why I bring this up.

Changing names of Military Installations, Tearing down statues, and banning cartoons or tv shows… are not REAL HELP, they are merely symbolic.

You might be wondering why that is an issue and how am I being politically homeless on this? Let me explain… well let me sum up.
HARD TRUTHS

CHANGES COST BIG MONEY – bigger than you’d expect. (grave 3K)
Legal battles to those changes = BIGGER MONEY

Who bears that cost and what does it actually buy us???
