The New Blasphemy

You have to say this for the Washington Post.  At least they’re consistent about being a garbage publication.

I’ve lost count.  But I think I’ve written at least a half dozen posts about just how awful this newspaper has become.

So I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at this dreadful column about comedian Kevin Hart being blackballed from the Academy Awards over old tweets.

“Is losing the Oscars enough?”

Here, I’ll save you the click.  The author’s answer is “no.”

You see, Kevin Hart violated the Left’s Blasphemy Laws; he committed heresy.  Therefore, not only must he be punished, but there must be penance.

Hart joked that if he saw his son playing with a doll house, he’d break the doll house over the kid’s head for doing something gay.

And that is a bridge too far for this Inquisitor from the Washington Post.

Surely yanking him from the Oscars isn’t enough of a punishment for such blasphemy.

Is it enough, though? Or is it just a start? The concept of penance may be out of fashion, but that should change, especially at a moment of national reckoning over homophobia, sexual violence and racism. Stepping down from the Oscars may be punishment for Hart, but that censure doesn’t do very much to help people who have, for example, been beaten by relatives because of their perceived sexual orientation.

Can you believe this chick?

So, by her standards, does that mean if I use the phrase “beat him like a redheaded stepchild,” I must do penance for those redheaded stepchildren who actually have been beaten?

Probably not.

Redheaded stepchildren are not protected by the Left’s blasphemy laws – unless of course those redheaded stepchildren are gay (or transgendered).

And it isn’t enough to recant for that heresy, you must be punished for it as well.

In fact, you owe it to those thin-skinned, easily-offended losers to give them something in return for your blasphemy.

You owe them restitution.

I wish I was kidding.  But I’m not.

It’s natural that people, particularly those who depend on the public’s good opinion to make a living, who say or do nasty things will want to find a way to redeem themselves so they can get back to work. If they’re going to make their way back from the wilderness, the communities they’ve hurt ought to get something out of the process. Being spared the sight of a homophobic jokester at the Academy Awards is rather less than restitution. [Emphasis Dianny’s]

This really is astounding coming from a publication that claims to defend the First Amendment and “democracy.”

This is the Left’s version of Sharia’s Blasphemy Laws.

They’re High Inquisitors – seeking to mete out punishment to those who blaspheme.

The Left has deemed gays protected.  Therefore joking about gays is blasphemy.  And the blasphemer must be pushed and the aggrieved recompensed.

This gives a whole new meaning to “going Medieval on your ass.”

Let’s be honest here.  “Penance” isn’t a word one typically hears outside of religion.

Penance means you repent of your sins.

And apparently making a joke about not wanting your son to be gay is a mortal sin in the eyes of this writer.

Now do you understand why many of us say that Leftism is a religion for Godless people?

If you do not conform to their strictures on speech, you are committing blasphemy and must repent.

But it isn’t even enough to repent.  You must perform acts of penance.  And it is they who decide what your penance should be.

Jon Gabriel is right.  The fact is, they will never be satisfied.

No penance will ever be enough to wipe the slate clean.

Your blasphemy will be a red letter permanently tattooed on your chest for the world to see.

As I said yesterday:

Apparently they have a divine right not to be offended. Ever.

And even if the offense was committed a decade ago – and you already apologized for it – you will still be blacklisted.

Hell, even the Inquisition would spare your life if you recanted your heresy.

But for the Left, once a heretic, always a heretic.

Hart turning down the hosting gig and offering yet another mea culpa won’t make a damn bit of difference to these people.

It’s as if the writer of this editorial set out to prove me right.

It wasn’t enough that he apologized.

It was never going to be enough.

This assault on our right to free speech isn’t limited to Twitter or Facebook.

This is one of the leading newspapers in the country calling for punishment, penance and restitution because a man made a few gay jokes nearly a decade ago.

Meanwhile, a newly elected Congresswoman threatened to subpoena Donald Trump Junior for posting a meme on Instagram that offended her.

And what is terrifically horrifying is how many people actually like that she did this.

It isn’t just that our freedom of speech is threatened. It’s that many Americans, like the ones who applaud this insipid fool’s tweet, are more than happy to surrender it.

And if we don’t put a stop to this — if we don’t stand up and fight back — America as the beacon of Freedom will be lost.

    Even what’s her name who pushed for Beto, the women’s march, lgbt, etc., can’t catch a break. For some reason, the progs got it into their heads that Taylor Swift was a klan member or something. And even with all her groveling for left causes, they still are snubbing her at the latest music award show.

    All this nonsense won’t stop through lawmaking because it’s a problem with conceit and emotional problems brought on by lazy thinking. It only stops when the Progs themselves realize they’re being ostracized or charged unfairly by their own people. Some feminists are figuring that one out lately with the tranny bloc coming after them.

    Sure, it’s fun to watch, but we can never watch the game from the bleachers because Progs always end up involving us. So annoying.

    “It isn’t just that our freedom of speech is threatened. It’s that many Americans, like the ones who applaud this insipid fool’s tweet, are more than happy to surrender it.”

    I beg to differ, it is not their freedom of speech they are happy to surrender, it is ours. Their freedom of speech remains intact. They can say whatever they want, as long as it’s condescending, about Christians, whites, white males, heterosexuals, conservatives, etc. It is only us who lose our freedom and may not say anything negative about them.

      If some do not have free speech, there is no such thing as freedom of speech in America. I think you know what I meant. You’d have to be a complete retard to think you can surrender free speech for some and remain immune. But then again, I’m talking about people who follow Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, so the likelihood that they’re complete retards is pretty good.

    We are already lost, but I will never apologize for calling a spade a spade, or an idiot an idiot, etc

    Why is the word “homophobe” used so often? I don’t know anyone who is scared of gays. Just because I find something disgusting or unnatural doesn’t mean I am afraid of it.

      So should we toss them off the roofs of buildings? I hope not. Personally, I don’t really want America to become Iran.

    Real men and women know instinctively that it is immoral to act “gay” and that that sort of behavior is caused by mental illness and/or sexual molestation.
    The left will defend it forever, as they defend most wrong things.
    The only solution is to tell the truth all the time….
