It's not like they painted the Potato Heads rainbow and called it the LGBTQIA+ Potato-Being, it's just an inclusive title drop.

Because Fox News needs something new to complain about, so they're taking this on as a national tragedy. And blowing it all out of proportion, as they always do.

Woke-ism yet again! They should take a survey of Cherokee tribal members and see how many find Jeep's SUV offensive to their people. I'm guessing the number isn't that much knowing how long they have made them.

Give it time and they will be changing this roof rack company's name because of a particular Indian tribe....

I can barely put the effort into this anymore. Now, it's Pepe LePew and Speedy Gonzales they're coming for. Well, one NY Times writer is, anyway.

Yep. You guessed it. Speedy is racist, and Pepe is a rapist.

I was wondering why. After all, I didn't even know these cartoons were still around. However, I see Speedy's in some new Space Jam movie. As for Pepe, I dunno. Like I said, I can barely put any effort into this stuff anymore. It's all insane, and here we are, trying to make sense out of it. Maybe Pepe's in some new movie, too.

Hey, how come Pepe isn't being cancelled for perpetuating French stereotypes?

Well, we're the ones letting them get away with it.

When/if it ever gets to the point that enough people create enough of a backlash against the companies who are bending the knee to this sh*t, by refusing to patronize whatever they are trying to sell with these characters, then it will end.

It's up to the rest of us to demand that it stop.

Unfortunately, too many of the otherwise "normal" people who are sick of this crap were also either Trump supporters or at least are seen as having been and as such, have lost any credibility they may have otherwise had with the sane members of mainstream society.

So now, anyone speaking out against this cancel culture crap will just be written off as perpetually angry Trump drunk cranks and loons.

So, it's still about Trump. LOL. Face it, Jimbo! Your side won!

Actually, I agree that the right won't be able to stop this nonsense.

It's up to the left. Like when leftist journalists (NY Times and The New Yorker) went after the SF School Board over the renaming of Lincoln and Washington High Schools. San Francisco has since backed down.

Bill Maher is also sometimes one of the rare liberal voices of reason.

I love watching the left eat itself, digest itself, and sh*t itself out.

Now carry on, liberals! Eat, eat, eat, eat, eat!

No, it's not ALL about Trump.

But he plays into the perception of every opinion you all will ever express on any issue from here on out.

The more conservative side of society who hates this cancel culture sh*t with the most vehemence, were in fact (and still are unfathomably) Trump supporters. And that goes a long way towards negating any credibility you all may have had on this or any other subject.

Once you have proven to the rest of the world that you are incapable of reasoning or rational thought on one issue, (support for an idiot like Trump) when you express support or disdain for every other issue you have an opinion on, it will be looked upon with either suspicion or outright mistrust.

Even by those who would otherwise be inclined to agree with you.

Seattle bicycle activists find the mandatory helmet law 'racist' towards Black people, claiming they have been stopped more than any other race for citations.

WOKE! GAH! WHAT NEXT! Do these people have too much time on their hands since Covid began?

Quote Seattle bicycle activists find the mandatory helmet law (...)


If they want to ride around & eventually smash their Humpty-Dumpty skulls into something just because they don't want to wear a helmet, then let them.  But blaming it on 'racism' (or some other lame excuse) is just being ingenuous. They wanted helmet laws themselves years ago 'because safety'.  Stupid f**kers...

Someone without a helmet, especially a black person in a white neighborhood, is assumed to have stolen the bike and it's a great excuse for a "You don't belong here, boy" stop and interrogation. Eliminate the helmet law (something conservatives love to do) means they have to have another reason to do that. 

No motorcycle helmet law here in Texas. Eggshell-head riders are supposed to state that to their insurance provider and pay more for insurance.
