Here’s The One Thing About Women’s Bathroom Signs That Now Make Them ‘Offensive’

As illegal immigrants celebrate their crimes in the street and gay weddings are being officiated from coast to coast, the only apparent downside for many in the left-leaning media is a dearth of bigotry about which to stoke outrage.

A recent Huffington Post article, for example, served as both an advertorial for a feminist coloring book obviously not aimed at the medium’s typical audience and as a warning against sexist bathroom signs. The book, Badass Feminist Coloring Book, includes black-and-white sketches of notable feminists along with selected quotes.

Hari Konabolu’s entry includes the observation: “We live in a world that is so sexist that women still can’t wear pants on public restroom signs.”

Ignoring the obvious fallacy of using identical silhouettes to distinguish two separate facilities, Konabolu’s comment was roundly attacked by many Huffington Post readers.

“Its [sic] called telling the difference between mens [sic] and women bathrooms,” one critic wrote. “If that is feminism I guess I missed the boat.”

Feminism in general was the object of ridicule among many readers, including one who wondered why a coloring page featuring a “torn apart fetus” and a “happy, smiling feminist” wasn’t included in the book.

For author Priscilla Frank, however, this crass and deeply ideological work is the perfect gift for “the powerful ladies in your life.”

Capture

A few of the pages included in the article ranged in subject matter from an image of a breastfeeding mom to a depiction of Wagatwe Wanjuki alongside a sign declaring: “F—k what you heard.”

Author Ijeoma Oluo described the intention behind the unorthodox coloring book in its motto: “You’re never too old for coloring books & you’re never too young for feminism.”

She went on to explain that she spends “a lot of time neck-deep in misogyny and racism” – a charge notably difficult to quantify or disprove.  Her story and the resulting book, however, did serve to win Frank over as a fervent supporter.

“Needless to say,” she wrote in her review, “we love everything about this project.”

This Hollywood Conservative Just Slapped Down The PC Left With An Epic Confederate Flag Rant

As Western Journalism reported last week, pro golfer and two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson has vowed to remove the image of the Confederate flag from the classic General Lee car he bought after the TV show The Dukes of Hazzard ceased production. Watson has said he’ll replace the Confederate flag atop the iconic Dodge Charger with an American flag — a move that drew a fair amount of criticism on social media from folks who believe the golfer caved to the PC purge some argue is now in full force.

The cable network TV Land has also shown its PC colors by yanking reruns of The Dukes of Hazzard from its programming lineup — not citing any offensive content of the show in terms of racist characters or themes, just the controversy over the flag that adorned the bright orange car in which the Duke boys drove around fictional Hazzard County.

Now, Christian actor and outspoken Hollywood conservative Kevin Sorbo has jumped into the controversy over the Confederate flag and the disappearance of the Dukes from television. An actor and director best known for his title role in TV’s Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, in addition to the recent movie God’s Not Dead, Sorbo cut loose with an epic rant on his Facebook page in which he slammed the “PC crowd” as “nuts,” “insane,” and “crazy” for pulling The Dukes of Hazzard.

Sorbo wondered what’s next to be purged — Hogan’s Heros, The Jeffersons, All in the Family?

Sorbo’s anger at the media’s political correctness obviously struck a chord and was generally well-received, as evidenced by what commenters had to say about his emotion-packed rant. Below, you can see what the actor had to say, as well as take a look at a few of the responses that raise compelling points about who was really behind the effort to maintain the practice of slavery.

Confederate Flag Cleansing Frenzy Continues With What This Golf Champ Just Vowed To Do

Earlier this week, Western Journalism told you how the classic television show Dukes of Hazzard has been dropped by the cable network TV Land because the iconic car the Duke boys drove around had a Confederate flag painted on its top. The show was canned by the net that carries programs such as The Brady Bunch and Leave It to Beaver, not because the characters were racist or the story lines depicted racist themes, but because of a symbol atop the show’s familiar 1969 Dodge Charger — a symbol that is now the target of what could be called a relentless PC purge.

It was back in the mid 1980’s when CBS stopped production of Dukes of Hazzard with its “Good Ol’ Boys” theme song performed by Waylon Jennings. A big fan of the show later stepped up and bought one of the official vehicles used in the filming — one of the General Lee cars. That fan was pro golfer and two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson.

Now the third-ranked golfer in the world, Watson let his fans and followers know on Thursday that he would not keep the classic car and TV star in its original condition. The news broke big on social media after Watson tweeted his plan for painting over the Confederate flag on the General Lee and replacing it with an American flag.

According to a report in the Pensacola News Journal, Bubba Watson bought the General Lee at auction: “Watson became the proud owner of the General Lee 01 in 2012 after spending $110,000 at auction to win the iconic orange 1969 Dodge Charger used by the Duke brothers in the popular 80s TV show ‘Dukes of Hazzard.’”

Reaction on social media to the pro golfer’s decision to remove the Confederate flag from the vehicle was mixed, with many people questioning or criticizing the move to fundamentally transform a piece of TV history.

There’s no word, as yet, on whether Bubba Watson will also eliminate from the General Lee the name “General Lee,” which, of course, refers to Robert E. Lee, the commanding general and brilliant tactician of the Confederate Army.

The Confederate Flag Flap

You can tell it’s presidential election season.

Once again, politicians and the mainstream media are being stupid and irresponsible.

They are wasting our time on minor issues that get both sides of the conservative-liberal divide riled up at each other, but prevent us from focusing on what really matters.

We have a mess of serious problems we have to fix or deal with at home and overseas.

And what have the media, the politicians, and the whole country been yapping and arguing about for two weeks?

The symbolism of a 150-year-old Confederate battle flag.

Jeb Bush — as predictably as Donald Trump and the others — said on Monday that the flag is “a racist symbol” from the past that divides people and causes disagreement today.

He said the Confederate flag should be removed from South Carolina’s statehouse grounds, just as he removed it from Florida’s capitol when he was governor.

I agree.

Though it was originally designed to prevent southern soldiers from killing each other in battle, the flag has been a symbol of both heritage and hate since the beginnings of the civil rights movement.

Sadly, it took a horrible tragedy in Charleston to make the country and our leading politicians realize that a state government has no business giving the Confederate flag a place of honor.

Like it or not, in 2015, the Confederate flag we all saw on the roof of those 1969 Dodge Chargers on the “Dukes of Hazard” is no longer so innocent.

Now, it symbolizes two totally different and incompatible things to whites and blacks.

Many Southern whites still see it as a symbol of the battlefield bravery of their ancestors, or as a romantic symbol of their Southern heritage and culture.

Meanwhile, for obvious reasons, the exact same flag is an insult to blacks. Many of their ancestors were slaves when the flag was first waved in battle.

And then, though freed, for the next 100 years, their grandparents and parents were treated as second-class Americans by racist state governments that incorporated the Confederate symbol in their official flags.

If you can’t understand why the black citizens of the South might consider the old Confederate battle flag an insult today, ask yourself how a German Jew would react to seeing a swastika fluttering proudly in front of the Reichstag in 2015.

The Confederate flag deserves no place of honor on government property in America. It never did.

But, as usual, some have gone overboard with political correctness.

Amazon and Wal-mart made fools of themselves when they announced that because of the Confederate flag flap, they were going to stop selling products that carry its image.

The TV Land channel was just as idiotic when it pulled episodes of “The Dukes of Hazard.” NASCAR hasn’t banned Confederate flags at its races, but it still might.

At least the Confederate flag hasn’t been outlawed. And the First Amendment hasn’t been repealed.

If Confederate flag worshippers want to fly their colors, they are still free to do so on their own property. Or they can make their own flags and put them on their T-shirts or pickup trucks or sell them at flea markets and gun shows.

Meanwhile, let’s try to get back to things that really matter in this election season.

Our economy is still a wreck. We have too few good full-time jobs and way too many people on unemployment, food stamps, and welfare.

We have to come up with sensible ways to reform immigration, health care, and Social Security/Medicare. High debt and heavy taxes are going to turn us into Greece.

We don’t know yet how our presidential wannabes plan to fix immigration or healthcare.

Or how they plan to defeat ISIS or get the economy back on track after eight years of Obama.

All we know for sure so far is what they think about the Confederate flag.

UFC President Asks Athletes To Stop Thanking Jesus: ‘Keep It At Home…’

We discussed the controversy of the UFC’s Yoel Romero having the audacity to say the word “Jesus” live on television. Leftists accused him of hate-speech against the gays and called for his job. UFC President Dana White has weighed in on the matter.

America doesn’t want to hear your thoughts on Jesus. Keep that stuff at home – religion, politics, all the stuff. When you’re fighting and being interviewed, they want to hear about the fight. It’s awesome you love Jesus. Love Jesus all you want. You just don’t have to do it publicly.

In Dana White’s defense, there was a time where he once caved to political correctness far less than the heads of most other sports/entertainment organizations. As of late, though, he’s been incredibly inconsistent. Both he and Ariel Helwani (the interviewer) agree that it was blown out of proportion, and Dana even said “I know for a fact that’s not what [Yoel] meant.” Still, he wants fighters to stop thanking Jesus.

Here’s my view. The fighter earned his speech; he just went through hell and back in a cage-fight and won. He deserves his time on the mic; and as long as he isn’t inciting any kind of violence, the guy should be able to thank whomever he wants.

Here’s a question: let’s say a fighter said something in support of gay marriage and/or Allah, and instead pissed off the other half of the country that wasn’t pissed off last Saturday. Would he feel the same way? Or would he have to cater more to the outrage brigade. Oh that’s right… I don’t quite think Conservatives would be so offended from somebody’s personal opinion.

Because, you know… tolerance.
