Do as I say . . .   4/1/2013

Again, celebrities reveal themselves as stupid hypocrites.

In the video, A-listers like Cameron Diaz, Paul Rudd, and Chris Rock read the names of the sites of the most horrific gun massacres before calling on viewers to “demand a plan” to stop mass shootings.
But now a new video called “Demand a Plan – Demand Celebrities Go F*** Themselves” has been created that highlights the gun violence many of these same stars have taken part in in their movies and television shows.

Unintended racists   

The only conclusion you can draw here is that PC fascists believe there’s something wrong or inferior in appearing to be black.

A DAD has apologised after his 10-year-old son “blacked up” to look like his footballing hero El Hadji Diouf.
The little boy, 10, even styled his hair into a white Mohican to copy the Leeds United forward and posted pictures on Twitter.
But he was accused of racism after wearing make-up in his bid to emulate the Senegalese striker.

Official name   

You can bet your boots that millions in taxpayers’ hard-earned is wasted administering this ridiculous nanny state exercise:

A 15-year-old is suing the Icelandic state for the right to legally use the name given to her by her mother. The problem? Blaer, which means “light breeze” in Icelandic, is not on a list approved by the government.
Like a handful of other countries, including Germany and Denmark, Iceland has official rules about what a baby can be named. In a country comfortable with a firm state role, most people don’t question the Personal Names Register, a list of 1,712 male names and 1,853 female names that fit Icelandic grammar and pronunciation rules and that officials maintain will protect children from embarrassment.

Cry babies   

Brendan O’Neill seems to be looking for a word to describe the latest bunch of grief-seekers who want litigators and the gumment to kiss their problems and make them better.

ARE you being bullied? If you have a job, attend university, have a hectic social life or do anything else that involves being put under pressure, you probably are.
But only because everything is defined as “bullying” these days. From being called out on your slackness to being hauled over the coals for your political views; what we used to call “being put on the spot”, we now call “bullying”.
The rise and rise of the B-word is testament to the touchiness of our therapeutic era and to the now widespread belief that people are pathetic bundles of sensitivity who will unravel at the merest hint of pressure.

The word Brendan is searching for is a wonderful piece of Aussie onomatopoeia: Sook!
