The longer I live, the more whacky the world makes me seem.
TheWrap: Roseanne Barr to Address Israel’s Parliament [Jan 30]
See, there you go! I've been pejoratized by Roseanne Barr herself because I don't buy products that are manufactured in Israel.
For instance, I love Linux, but I wouldn't buy a Linux-approved mini-computer that comes already loaded with it because they are made by Compulab, based in Yokneam -- one of Ariel Sharon's "development towns", part of his "master plan" to eventually take over the whole of Palestine.
Compulab: CompuLab products are manufactured and tested in company’s own ISO9001:2015 certified facilities in Yokneam, Israel.
Instead, a couple of years ago, I bought a mini that was made in Hong Kong, overwrote the Windows with Linux, and am now the proud owner of an impressive, fast and reliable little machine while still supporting the legal rights of Palestinians.
In other words, I support International Law, according to which armed struggle against occupation is not just internationally recognised but specifically endorsed. AlJazeera
Barr can be a "lover of Israel" all she likes, but that doesn't have to preclude an interest in justice for Palestinians, and if it does, then the news about her is true: she is a racist Jew. And even grossly politically incorrect persons concur with that. To whit:
Roseanne Barr was turfed from her own TV show for politically incorrect language, and that's okay with TheWrap commenter (The Badger) who never watched her show anyway because he/she doesn't like "brassy fat women".
What shocks me is that, in researching opinion regarding the Barr issue, I came across some ugly acronyms I'd never seen before. TERF, for instance. I looked up the definition and even that seems unintelligible to me.
TERF: Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist. That group of feminists that claims that trans women aren't really women, as biological determinism is only a fallacy when it used against them, not when they use it against others.
And then there are SJWs:
Reddit: What are SJWs and why does everyone hate them?
Apparently they are "Social Justice Warriors", so how can that be a bad thing? Maybe because they're like "The Badger" (above) who boycotted Roseanne's TV show because he doesn't like "brassy fat women"?
A Reddit Commenter offers a decent example of a SJW:
Meanwhile, the Urban Dictionary comes right out and calls them "scum":
Omigawd! I don't even know what "whom'st" means!
And here's something else I don't get:
Konbini: This Map Shows Which European Countries Are the Most Racist
Here's the question the survey participants were asked:
I'm stunned. Literally. What sort of doofus would dignify a question like that with a "yes" or "no" answer?
I'd be asking: At what age? What kind of relationship? Teacher-Student? Paedophilic? Father, Mother? Romantic? Sexual? Homosexual? Platonic? ... There are so many different kinds of relationships!
What sort of Black, Asian, Jew, Muslim, I'd ask? There are as many different kinds among those as there are among "whites". They could be low-life dead-beats or crooks or perverts or psychopaths, or ... they could be kind, gentle, decent, intelligent, educated, honest, good-natured, generous, caring.
And it wouldn't hurt if they had my sense of humour and called me "Mom".
I may be whacky, but these surveys are a crock. A dangerous crock. They demonstrate absolutely nothing except what appears to be a scary propensity among the human denizens of this world for knee-jerk reactions to questions that make no sense at all!
Never mind that what a parent wants for their kid is totally irrelevant in the mind of the kid, which negates the value of the survey even further.
I'm sorry to have to say it, but folks who are so easily manipulated by a little bit of public attention, and that includes Roseanne Barr, probably deserve everything they end up with.
