What happens when The Great Stupid reaches “Peak Stupid”?
Oh, it will be spectacular. People will over the U.S. of all ages and political affiliations will suddenly realize what they have been accepting and tolerating. They will realize that they have been doing to society, the culture and the nation the equivalent of shooting a nail bun directly into one’s skull because it seemed like a good idea at the time. They will be simultaneously humiliated, embarrassed, remorseful and angry.
And it’s coming my friends. It is coming because the purveyors of the Great Stupid will keep trying out more and more ridiculous tactics and stratagems to attain their desired Orwellian utopia until they reach the inevitable tipping point. Based on today’s developments, it is coming soon.
Guess what word Woke World has decided to ban as racist.
Come on, guess.
It’s field. As is “Field of Dreams,” “Lilies of the Field,” and “Flanders Field.” As in “take the field.” As in “What field are you in?” and “Let’s do some field research.”
Here is the University of Southern California’s School of Social Work proving that it is run by lunatics and can no longer be regarded as a place of serious instruction or rational thought:
“As we enter 2023, we would like to share a change we are making at the Suzanne-Dworak-Peck School of Social Work to ensure our use of inclusive language and practice. Specifically, we have decided to remove the term ‘field’ from our curriculum and practice and replace it with ‘practicum.’ This change supports anti-racist social work practice by replacing language that could be considered anti-Black or anti-immigrant in favor of inclusive language. Language can be powerful, and phrases such as ‘going into the field’ or ‘field work’ may have connotations for descendants of slavery and immigrant workers that are not benign,” the notice claims. The notice indicates that it is from the “Practicum Education Department” and to the “USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck Practicum Education Community, Faculty, Staff, and Students.”
The notice says that it is from the “Practicum Education Department” and to the “USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck Practicum Education Community, Faculty, Staff, and Students.” Practicum! No, I am not making this up. See?
It’s real! These people are insane, literally out of their minds. And this is Big Brother, totalitarian, GoodThink craziness. How do you like “In solidarity with universities across the nation, our goal is to not only change language but honor and acknowledge inclusion and reject white supremacy, anti-immigrant and anti-blackness ideologies”?
Here’s my completely mature, measured reaction: FIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELDFIELD…Bite me.
USC isn’t alone in taking the leap into woke, political correctness, virtue signalling, mind-control madness.
Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services announced that it will no longer use the words “field worker” in agency communications, citing the term’s “implication for descendants of enslaved Black and Brown individuals.”
A January 4 memo from Demetrius Starling, the director of the department’s Children’s Services Agency, and Dwayne Haywood, the director of the department’s Economic Stability Administration was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. It blathers, “While the widespread use of this term is not intended to be harmful, we cannot ignore the impact its use has on our employees. Establishing shared language is essential to our collective progress.”
Oh, peak stupid is coming, my friends. It’s coming fast.
It may already be here.
