Soy beans.

Blasphemy. 

If I wanted to eat soy, I'd go to a Chinese restaurant. 

 

Oh, that reminds me I forgot to address the topic from Croatian perspective. No, we've got no cancel culture or overly politically correct demands. It's not a type of plant that grows in this soil.

But you avoided the point - you've got bigots whining because they want to say bigoted stuff while not being held responsible for that. They'll have to grow up and grow a pair and be able to either defend their position, either shut up. 

My issue is that it's not just bigots wanting to be bigots. Its goes further then that.

Look at my post number 62. It's a very recent example. Do you think her tweet was hate speech or a call to violence ? Should she of lost her star role on the Mandalorian because of it?

At what point are we just censoring and punishing people for not thinking the correct way?

It's the most recent example but this is happening all the time now. It can't be healthy.

She should have known better.  Comparing republicans to Jews?  Everyone knows Jews are all Democrats :P

I don't think it was hate speech, it was just whiny and tasteless. And it was logical that the owner of that company won't find it acceptable. It's a case of serve her right, in my opinion. And it's a case of who cancels whom first, it seems. 

What I do agree with you is that it can't be healthy. Everyone's so touchy lately it will soon be impossible to say anything to anyone and then you'll probably go back to normal, adult way of expressing yourselves.

We're raising them differently. If they come for me, they'll come for me because I'm too flexible. Which is how they'll learn I'm not too flexible at all :lol: 

Seriously, I'm more worried with too extreme revert to tradition among the young, than with too much of liberal thoughts.

Everyone knows these are self-hating Jews, because real Jews are Trumpers, who bless Netanyahu for naming new settlements after Trump. 

I deleted the rest, so the moderator doesn't have to cancel me :lol:

So you're ultimately agreeing with people losing their jobs for not thinking the right way?  Excluding actual hate speech and the call to violence.

It's extremely harmful. And despite what you claim it's all one sided. Who have right wing "cancel culture" people ever successfully cancelled?

The right believes in freedom of speech more than the left these days.  That's why the only people that attempt to cancel people from the right are mainly super religious.

And Ben Shapiro lol :lol:.

The 2016 stats say Jews votes 71% Hillary and 21% Trump.

Interestingly the election before that Romney got 30%.

It's a private company. You can't cancel owner's right to decide what he'll tolerate or not. I wouldn't tolerate that Holocaust comparison either. In fact, each time someone today moans about being persecuted, I tell them to be careful what they wish for, because it may come true and the real persecution doesn't leave you the option of complaining loudly across all media that there are. 

Right wing would like to cancel everything they don't find fitting into their narrative and if they're failing at it, it's only because they're less good at this game. To be honest, conservatives are stereotyped as less bright than progressives, which is only logical, since striving to keep things the same at all cost is the ultimate sign of not being to bright.

Sure but how many of those shows could exist today if they won't already established?

The creator of The Office has said that he does not believe they would of been allowed to air if they started it today.

Hmm...

Well, they are still being broadcast here in the Netherlands.

You're basically saying you support censoring and fire people for what they think as long as it isn't a thought you agree with lol.

You see how that is harmful right?

Should someone be fired for making a tweet of BlackLivesMatter? 

Edit: you're also saying if you can complain about prosecution than you're not prosecuted.

Sort of a catch 22 don't yah think? Lol.

The show is still broadcast. I'm saying that the creators said they do not believe they would be able to make the show if they were making it in 2020. It would not have aired or would of had to of been alot different.

Since the show is already done and established it's not a problem to broadcast it.

Am I explaining this right, does that make sense,?

How about blue lives matter?  I like the  way @Helen of Annoy thinks she's safe from cancel culture but is a willing participant if she agrees with the thing someone is being cancelled for. :tu:

Exactly. That's the danger. It's very anti-free speech and very thought police. 

But the sad thing is alot of people do not believe in free speech anymore. They just want those they don't agree with censored. 

People no longer believe the marketplace of ideas is beneifical they just see dissident thought as a threat.

Do you know what you just did?  You said something that will offend marginalized people.  Not everyone that gives birth is female.  You are now a monster and we will look up every post you've made since 1994 and find something that will get thousands of people to demand the company you work for fire you or all of these people will boycott your business.  

I want to meet someone who gave birth that is not female and that idiot that got a gender change then had medical help to get pregnant doesn't count.   That one is confused about the whole gender issue.

I understand you.

Kids here watch it, grown-ups watch it, it's quite popular overhere. You mention some scene of Family Guy or South Park, and 2 or 3 are able to finish your story, and we all have a good laugh. And that includes colored people, gay people, and so on.

Maybe not in Amsterdam, but who cares.

If some PC pricks wanted it to be forbidden, it would already have happened. And believe me, we do have our share of PC pricks.

Yes, I support censoring there where it is necessary. Or, in case of private companies and lives, almost unlimited censoring, according to preferences of the owner.

Anyone should be fired for saying or writing anything that is against the company policy. I mean, you'd force people to keep a blabbermouth employed? What are you, a socialist? They are supposed to be against firings no matter what. 

 

Also, if you're not stupid, you can say a lot in an appropriate manner. Those who are stupid should be taught to keep their mouth shut - like it used to be in those happy old times conservatives are so nostalgic about - and problem solved.

Yeah, the world has seen how much and when blue lives matter. What a hypocrisy. 

I'm not supportive of cancel culture - though I still think it's an typically conservative panicky exaggeration. I believe in norms, determined by common sense. No one gets to say just anything and cries their way out of consequences. On the other hand, everyone gets to express themselves, but yeah, there are limits and everything we ever say may come back not to haunt us, but to demand an explanation.

You're assuming they care about your explanation.  Cancel culture doesn't care.  They care about as much as you care about trump explaining his actions.

Oh, good lord!  There are more?   It still doesn't count.  They were born female and had part of their anatomy changed, but not the part that counts, they can be men if they want but giving birth they are still using their female parts.   It doesn't count.   Now if You personally, who is born male, find a way to give birth  that is different and I want to know how you did it.

But you are aware that the push is to ignore what you said about biology, right?  He is a man according to progressives not different than me or Sylvester Stallone.
